Another booth we enjoyed at the main fair this year during Basel Week Miami was the work on display from Paul Kasmin Gallery featuring an eclectic mix of artists like Ivan Navarro (above), Kenny Scharf, Walton Ford, David LaChapelle, Erik Parker, and more. In particular, we enjoyed the special section from Navarro which included a set of optical illusion-based works from the Impenetrable series (made from fluorescent lights, resin, mirror) that mesmerized viewers as they peered down into the “depths.” Discuss Basel Week Miami here.

With all the great art that is scattered all over the world, it’s not often that you can see works from prominent artists in your home town – and even less likely you see them side by side. That is exactly the scenario we have in Copenhagen at the V1 Gallery as they celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a massive group show entitled Tonight We Won’t Be Bored. Take for example the wall above that has pieces from Todd James, Futura, DearRainDrop, and Kenny Scharf that […]
Last week, AM attended the group exhibition curated by KAWS and Erik Parker, a unique project hosted by Paul Kasmin Gallery. The show Pretty on the Inside (teased) included works from seven American artists – Todd James, Tony Matelli, Joyce Pensato, Peter Saul, Karl Wirsum and of course, the two curators. The visually intense and almost organic feel of works served to focus the viewer on the raw beauty within. The show runs until August 19th, so make it a point to stop by if you’re […]
Later this month, the Paul Kasmin Gallery will host the opening of Pretty on the Inside, a show curated by KAWS and Erik Parker. To our knowledge, this is the first time KAWS has flexed his curatorial chops since I Can’t Feel My Face exhibition in Los Angeles in 2009 (covered). Along with the two curators, the other artists they chose to join them are Todd James, Tony Matelli, Joyce Pensato, Peter Saul, and Karl Wirsum. See you there on June 23rd. Discuss KAWS here.
With a mastery of color and layering at it’s core, Erik Parker’s work assaults the senses in a deeply visceral way. Blending rawness with whimsy, the New York-based artist brought his newest body of psychedelia to colette in Paris a couple weeks back. Playing the part of stylistic chameleon, much like his last solo, Endless Anytime (covered), sidetracked from his signature amorphous figuration to focus on more classical still life compositions, Re-Upped sees the artist take yet another new direction with a series of acrylic […]
Currently on view at Honor Fraser in Culver City is New York-based artist Erik Parker’s Endless Anytime – a exhibition of new paintings that marks a shift in the artist’s subject matter. While his recognizable bright, vibrant, and saturated colors are still represented on each canvas, the show features nudes, still lifes, and landscapes in place of psychedelic amorphous figures. While classical in the tradition of such artists as Picasso and Matisse, the paintings have a contemporary edge to them and have the unmistakable feel […]
After it’s start in France in July, “Stages” will make its final stop before the paintings going to the homes of collectors (purchased to benefit LIVESTRONG). The exhibition will be on location at this year’s Art Basel Miami at O.H.W.O.W. Gallery (Dec 4 – Dec 6) and like the show’s recent stop in NY, several artists were added to the traveling exhibition – this time, the Clayton Brothers (featured), Erik Parker, and Tomoo Gokita (currently showing at Honor Fraser). Take a look at the Parker […]
