Showing: Alex Chinneck – “A sprinkle of night and a spoonful of light”

For this year’s Milan Design Week, Alex Chinneck has unveiled another one of his impossible architectural creations – sort of a followup to something he built last year in his native England (covered). Entitled A sprinkle of night and a spoonful of light, the new sculptural intervention that involves the front of an entire building is his most ambitious project to date. Produced in partnership with IQOS, the new seventeen meter wide piece unzips the side of the facade, leading to an illusion of the whole structure is coming apart. […]

Previews: Mark Whalen – “Ramble Ramble” @ Over The Influence (Los Angeles)

On April 13th, Over The Influence’s Los Angeles space will be hosting new sculptures and wall reliefs from the locally-based Mark Whalen (featured) with a show entitled Ramble Ramble. The Australian-born artist has been focusing on his three dimensional work of late, taking the heads of the gender-fluid figures from his paintings and stacking them in totemic multi-colored compositions. Created from cast aluminum, the intriguing pieces play with reality and feature different textures while appearing to balance with various balloon and air-filled objects. Discuss Mark Whalen here.

Currently in New York, Deitch Projects has a show on view from Austin Lee featuring a series of paintings and sculptures.

The upper level of the SoHO space is dedicated to a selection of new portraits that he paints from life with an airbrush – of visitors to his studio during the past several years. As referenced by the title of the […]
