Showing: Geoff McFetridge – “Coming Back Is Half The Trip” @ Eighteen Gallery

Last weekend in Copenhagen, Eighteen Gallery hosted the the opening of another great show – Geoff McFetridge’s Coming Back Is Half The Trip. The Los Angeles-based illustrator, designer and artist’s instantly recognizable distillation of the human form into basic shapes and colors once again takes center stage for this exhibition, work that takes inspiration from daily routines and patterns. This time around, McFetridege has nicely paired his paintings with some sculptural works (his take on the animal form), arranged head-to-tail in the center of the space as would be indicated […]

Showing: Alicia McCarthy & Group Show @ V1 Gallery

For her second showcase with V1 which opened recently in Copenhagen, Alicia McCarthy created a fresh body of work featuring her iconic waving patterns and rainbow-like creations. Painted mostly on found and repurposed objects or faded paper sheets, these hypnotic creations are done using a variety of uncommon art techniques. Often leaving an obvious or hidden personal mark or note, the Mission School stalwart makes unorthodox, personal pieces that expresses her raw urge to create as it relates to her experiences. McCarthy also used this opportunity […]

Showing: Barry McGee – “Little Savage” @ Eighteen

With artworks being displayed everywhere from hidden corners above doorways to the backs of pedestals scattered through the place, the space was temporarily transformed into L. Fong Healing Arts Center. Showcasing […]

Exclusively focused on five series of hand pulled silk-screen prints, Sediment will include new works that for first time in years include colors. Through his simple and unique visual language, the Danish artist manages to get his images from the two-dimensional surface of the paper.
