Like something out of a lucid dream, Chris Berens’ paintings are as enigmatic and imaginative as they come. Both from a technical perspective as well as an aesthetic viewpoint, there is something wonderfully amorphous and endless about his work. His art appears as sinister as it does beautiful, teetering that fantastical line between foreign yet familiar, gorgeous yet grotesque, bizarre yet natural. With certain elements appearing crystal clear and others blurred, it’s as if they were representations of a person attempting to transcribe the images […]

Travis Louie’s first solo in New YorkÂ was as good as the Adams FamilyÂ was strange and boy was it strange… err good… umm… well both actually. Uniquely hidden away at the back of a hip East Village bar, the FUSE Gallery premiered Strange Neighbors (previewed/interviewed) to a crowded and energetic group. AM was on hand as Travis presented a bountiful 15 piece show (which is more than his usual for any show). Each painting was beautifully executed and well crafted. Each character was accompanied with a […]
AMÂ Â was able to stop by last week to check out Jeff Soto’s installation of his show at the Riverside Art Museum.Â We aren’t able to show you everything as we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise, but we do have some tasty images to keep you happy until opening night – December 13th (6-9 pm).

One of our favorite artists, Stella Im Hultberg is part of a group show that opens tonight at Limited Addiction Gallery along with Lyle Motley and Sean Christopher.

Herakut’s (interviewed) show “Dirty Laundry” (previewed) is officially opening tonight but here are some photos from the preview night courtesy of Romanywg (photographer extraordinaire). The setup looks amazing – from the “flesh suit laundry” installation to the presumably custom painted walls. Everything was top notch. We had originally thought that because of the fact that it was an exhibition of pre-commissioned paintings that it would be a pretty random show.Â We were wrong.Â All the pieces in this new body of work definitely fits together […]
David B. Smith Gallery or the gallery formerly known as Limited Addiction is showcasing three of theirÂ artists this year at Art Basel (Miami) – Josh Keyes, Jason Thielke, and Gregory Euclide. The exhibit will be at the Aqua Wynwood this year starting November 4th. These artists all have their distinctive styles that we like: Keyes with his “cubism” and ecological themes, Thielke with his architectural interpretations of the human form, and Euclide with his multi-layered landscapes… David has kindly sent us some preview images from […]
