This Saturday night (October 7th) in Los Angeles, Cordessa Fine Art will be presenting a new body of work from Kevin E. Taylor. Entitled Dead Evidence, the recently produced paintings are loosely adapted from Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel’s photo series Evidence. Continuing his exploration of intriguing imagery that brings surreal elements into museum or gallery settings, the San Francisco-based artist deals with themes such as how “humankind’s urgent march toward technological advancement accelerates, yet our mortality constantly grounds us.” Discuss Kevin E. Taylor here.
One booth you don’t want to miss while in London for Frieze Week will be the Perrotin booth as they have dedicated their entire space to KAWS.

Rules of Engagement, a joint show from Mark Jenkins (interviewed) and Rero, is currently on view at Wunderkammern and will run until October 28th. The exhibition at the gallery’s Milan venue features the American Jenkins bringing his signature and often ski-masked sculptural pieces in from the streets while still retaining the cleverness and grittiness in the indoor setting. At the same time, Rero, who hails from France, has filled the space with his text-based work, immediately recognizable as the words are crossed by a thick black line. The […]
Galerie Mathgoth is currently hosting the French debut solo exhibition from one of the more talented muralists in urban art movement, Fintan Magee. Waves is also the first solo show since 2014 for the Austrialia-born artist who spent the last three years traveling the globe and painting some impressive, large scale murals. For this show, Magee produced a series of canvases that continue his ongoing figurative body of work that mixes realism and poetic dreams. Accented with a strong painterly approach, his images are permeated with surrealistic elements that are in constant juxtaposition with […]

Tonight (September 30th) at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles, Andy Kehoe will be opening a solo show entitled PRISMATIC. The new mystical paintings continue the Pittsburgh-based artist’s expansion of his fantastical world filled with mysterious antlered creatures often set against the background of luminous and polychromatic skies. Kehoe’s technique of combining resin with oil paint gives the work a dimensionality that adds to the richness and texture of his compositions.
