Showing through the end of this week at Joshua Liner in New York is Riusuke Fukahori’s Goldfish Blossoms. For his third and largest solo yet with the gallery, the Yokohama-based artist has produced a wide selection of his signature acrylic and resin paintings of goldfish. Swimming in Japanese household objects and handmade vessels, the fish appear astonishingly three dimensional with the artist’s layered resin painting technique leading to an illusion of depth and realism. Coupling this skill in tricking the eye with Fukahori’s playful choice of items to house the freshwater […]

A couple nights ago, Erik Parker’s new show opened at Mary Boone Gallery’s 5th Avenue space in New York. New Soul is a fresh body of work dominated by the locally-based artist’s series of tondos, his first time working with circular canvases. Utilizing his signature saturated palette, Parker has created lush landscapes with pools of water framed with vegetations spilling from the edges, with the view offered like peering into a hidden cartoon paradise. Also seen in the selection of works are face paintings, augmented […]
Right on the heels of his showing just at the end of last year at Perrotin Seoul, Josh Sperling opened a new exhibition tonight at the gallery’s New York location.

Created on shaped canvases, Sperlings expressive squiggles, angular shapes, and sinuous curves combine to form clusters of works that are oftentimes informed by the architecture in which it is […]
