Christopher Wool @ Gagosian Gallery (Rome)

It’s been a while since we’ve covered anything in Rome, but today that changes. Gagosian Gallery brings one of today’s most important artists to the historic city with eight new paintings by Christopher Wool. The silkscreen and enamel large works on linen feature Wool’s signature gestures and technique. On top of the silkscreen foundation, Wool employs stenciling, rolling, dripping, dragging, and spray-painting. Each painting is heavily worked on by the artist, with erasures, over-painting, and reproduction part of the intense process. The result are spectacular […]

Showing: Aaron Young – “The Right Way To Do Wrong” @ Gagosian Gallery (Bevery Hills)

It’s not enough that Southern California currently enjoys perfect sunshiny weather while New York freezes. It also has to rub it in by currently being home to terrific shows with NYC-based artists Faile and Aaron Young – all under one roof.  Young, formerly of San Francisco and a Yale MFA, boasts a solo show in the first floor of the prestigious Gagosian Gallery in the famous 90210 zip code.

Openings: Jeff Koons – “New Paintings” @ Gagosian (LA)

Jeff Koons has created some of the most iconic art pieces of the last quarter century. He is an artist whose name is nearly synonymous with contemporary art and culture. While his brand of Pop Art always contains a controversial omnipresent ambiguity concerning how “intelligent,” “deep”, or “dumb” his work really is (that is ultimately left to the viewer to decide), there is no denying how technically perfect, enjoyable, and awe-inspiring they are in person. The consummate perfectionist, once he has an idea hatched inside […]
