A few of the artists seen include Gary Baseman, Laurie Lipton, Cyrcle., Shepard Fairey, RISK, and Kozyndan. Take a look at more photos below and get a copy of […]
After another three city series of shows in Australia earlier this year, the husband and wife artistic duo known as Kozyndan have a new show opening tomorrow (September 7th) in Los Angeles. Their return to their hometown gallery of Giant Robot 2 will be entitled End Of Summer Never Ends, a nod to their love of the Southern California summer. Included in the work are several references to the underwater photography that is part of their oeuvre like the paintings seen above as well as some sculptural […]
Breeze Block Gallery opened their huge group show Wider than a postcard (previewed) alongside the first solo show in their new gallery 2 space – olive47’s bonita bonita (featured) a couple of weeks back to a packed Portland crowd.

The work was hung on the walls in grids of 24 cards, each echoing the aspect ratio of the individual works themselves as each work was 6×4 inches. The variance of work encompassed photography […]
On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]

Following directly on from Part 1 of our coverage of the busy Space//Form opening, AM now delves a little deeper pictorially into the artwork created for this huge group exhibition of 110 artists with a series of pictures where the art is more viewable (like the Mark Dean Veca installation above). To recap, all of the participating artists were given an identical 10×10 inch cradled timber panel by exhibition sponsor Ampersand as the medium to work on. The exhibition curator, Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis chose a brief […]
