Openings: James Jean “Kindling” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Last night, Jonathan Levine hosted an exclusive friends and family viewing of James Jean’s Kindling. The Chelsea gallery was filled from the opening minutes with many New York art notables including: Susan Sarandon, Eric White, David Choe, Jonathan Viner, Esao Andrew, Travis Louie, and Molly Crabapple. The stunning show was a visual mix of abstract, illustrative, and an “east meets west” fusion of artistic ingenuity. With most pieces gobbled up before the doors even opened, there was little doubt in the minds of many that […]

Seen on the Streets: Ellis G.

Brooklyn chalk artist extraordinaire Ellis G. went to town on Santa Monica Blvd. last night as part of “From the Streets of Brooklyn” (teased and previewed) opening 7pm tonight at Thinkspace. His chalk etchings capture the shadows of everyday street objects and their surrounding environment. Anything that casts a shadow is fair game: bikes, fences, lightposts, and even full city blocks. Ellis G’s former graffiti writing background is apparent in the precise execution of his work. His lines are clean, performed with long, confident pulls. […]

Openings: Ron English/Alex Pardee @ Fifty24SF

Ron English’s “Mythographic Vicissitudes” (previewed) and Alex Pardee’s “Letters From Digested Children” opened last night at Fifty24SF. English reinterpreted some “myths” with this body of work showing off his skills by utilizing different styles of painting.  Alex Pardee took on the serious topic of missing children by creating a body of work showing children who are eaten by monsters. AM friend Rhinomilk was able to stop by and snap some pics for our readers. Photos after the jump.

Teaser: Stella Im Hultberg/Andrew Hem @ Roq La Rue

Here is a little taste of what’s to come as we look ahead to February.  One of the highlights will be a two-person show of Stella Im Hultberg and Andrew Hem opening on the 13th at Roq La Rue. Seen above is a shot of some works in progress from Stella’s studio.  It’s hard to tell exactly, but looks as though she will be continuing her works on canvas.  It will be interesting to see what she has in store as she is continuing to […]

Dalek @ Redux Contemporay

A site-specific installation by Dalek is scheduled to open to the public on January 23rd (6-10pm) at the Redux Contemporary Art Center with Dalek in attendance. We wonder if his “space monkeys” will be making an appearance although they have been seen less and less in his work. The show is entitled “Broken, Beaten, and Buried,” and will give Dalek a chance to expand on his usual colorful 2D paintings. We are excited to see what him and his team will come up with. A […]

Update: Anthony Lister

We recently came across this picture of Anthony Lister working on an etching for an upcoming release from Paper Monster scheduled for this month.  No details yet as to the edition size, price, or even the image, but from the looks of it, the print will most likely be of the painting seen below that was shown by New Image Art at Art Basel week. We are also looking forward to his two-person show with Craola coming up next month at Fifty24SF, but more on […]
