Yesterday’s Contemporary Day Sale (previewed) at Sotheby’s in London only had a few lots that AM was closely watching, but the results are a good sign for the overall market. In particular, Faile received a much needed boost with their large canvas “New York City 02” (Lot # 169) selling right in the middle of the estimate for 49,250 GBP and the smaller “NYC Butterfly Girl” on wood (Lot # 168) selling for 16,250 GBP, well over the 12,000 GBP high estimate. Faile has not […]

Yesterday,Â AM swung by Gallery 1988 SF to check out Matt Dangler’s latest solo show, “Searching for Satori” (previewed). Â Matt was kind enough to give us an intimate walk-through, explaining some of the pieces from the show and their meaning to him. Â Check out what he had to say and our exclusive pictures, after the jump.
I basically be organizing and planning the next two leaderships we go to. That makes me many shades of happy. Matt one of those people who like, the more I learn about him, the more I like him. Shoot more pictures. If you think you’re tired of running, you probably do not especially if you have a digital camera. There is no additional cost to take more pictures, so why take a photo when you can just take? Even the daily scenes can be memorable […]
It’s currently 7:15 pm in Sydney, Australia at the MTV Gallery where Ian Francis’ new exhibition (previewed) has just opened it’s doors to numerous excited Aussies ‘Down Unda.’ Since most of the world may not be able to attend the pop-up Semi-Permanent exhibition as our friends in the southern hemisphere, AM thought it would be nice to share an online viewing of Ian’s latest body of work. More images after the jump.

Last night marked the opening of Yoshitomo Nara’s solo show at Blum & Poe (previewed and teased). The show features a large scale sculptural installation, and a new series of paintings and drawings focusing on Nara’s signature pastel-hued girls. At the center of the exhibition was a prairie-style wagon installation by YNG, a collaboration between Yoshitomo Nara and Japanese design firm Graf. Functioning as a makeshift studio, the wagon features works in progress, completed drawings, and everyday items hand-picked by Nara. AM was also fortunate […]
This past Saturday, Copro Nason also opened “Like Giving a Kid a Loaded Gun,” the solo debut by Matthew Bone. A local of Los Angeles, Bone is a figurative artist who paints dark images filled with strong visual impact that are an allegory of the morbidity present in the world today and the consequences of the revelation of these conditions. While his work may be too edgy for some to stomach, AM welcomes the change in imagery and strong juxtaposition Bone brings to the “safe” […]
Art Basel is not the only game in town. The crush of quality art fairs are a dream and a curse for art lovers. One has only so much time in the day!
