Teaser: Matthew Palladino @ Texas Contemporary Art Fair

With a successful NYC exhibition back in June that saw strong institutional interest, the ever-dynamic Matthew Palladino (interviewed) looks to continue exploiting his near never-ending supply of creative juices with his most recent painting. Destined for the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, the hypnotic painting executed in his color rich, isometric perspective (or “fake” perspective, as Matthew originally self-ascribed), producing that uniquely flat, two dimensional aesthetic of a three-dimensional environment, will be on display at the Eli Ridgway booth (formerly Baer Ridgway, with co-owner Kent Baer […]

Art HK ’11: “HONG KONG Terry Richardson” @ Diesel

During the recent Art HK ’11, controversial photographer extraordinaire Terry Richardson presented a body of Asian themed work, aptly dubbed HONG KONG Terry Richardson, with clothing company Diesel. The selection of toned down, while still edgy portraits centered around celebrities native to the city of Hong Kong. A book by the same name, produced in conjunction with Ooi Botos and limited to 1000 copies, offers up Richardson’s entire catalog of photographs taken in Hong Kong during his travels there. More installation shots after the jump.
