Preview: “Miss Danger on the Loose” @ LAB ART Los Angeles

Street art – characterized by its illegal nature, activity in rough neighborhoods late at night, demanding physical stamina, and the occasional running from cops – has historically been a young man’s endeavor.  Thankfully, there have been notable exceptions.  In San Francisco, the late Margaret Kilgallen helped revolutionize the genre and form the influential Mission School art movement.  Swoon graced the walls, doors, and subways of New York with her gorgeous wheatpastes of friends, family, and those whose stories she wanted to bring to light.  Los […]

Cy Twombly 1928 – 2011

The world lost a true pioneer and iconoclast today as Gagosian Gallery announced the news of Cy Twombly’s passing. Often cited as an artist whose aesthetic did not fit neatly into any one style during an age when his contemporaries oftentimes were defined by their movements, Twombly’s work was challenging in multiple ways. His poetic calligraphic scribbles and repetitive graffiti were unlike anything created at the time and critics were divided as to whether it even constituted artistic merit.  Validated during his lifetime and subsequently […]

Openings: Jasper Johns @ Matthew Marks

When the subject of “best living artist in the world” comes up, the one artist always on everyone’s list is Jasper Johns.  And with good reason.  The eighty-one year old legend is one of the most influential figures in art, almost single-handedly moving it away from Abstract Expressionism and laying the foundation for Pop and Minimalism.  His Flag paintings are as visible a part of American culture as  the hot rod or baseball. One of Johns’ best known series is his numbers works. Using the […]
