Palm Springs will play host to Joe Ledbetter’s solo show “Hunters and Gatherers” tomorrow night at M Modern Gallery. His usual cast of characters play out the multiple stories and interactions that he creates for them. He seems to have moved away from the lighter faded linework that he had been experimenting with in previous shows and again is painting with stronger silhouettes. Some selected pieces after the jump.

When we last left Faile, the Brooklyn collective was hard at work prepping for their upcoming show in the UK.Â Now, AM brings you an exclusive glimpse of the show. Set in a abandoned school house in Vauxhall London, Faile and Laz bring the heat on November 7th with “Lost in Glimmering Shadows”. It will be another signature “must see or will regret events” much like the Outsiders show in NYC. Faile – Lost in Glimmering Shadows Lillian Baylis School, Lollard St London, SE11 6PY […]
Artist and musician Liz McGrath is opening a show tonight in Spain called “Tears of the Crocodile.”Â Her grotesque yet beautiful sculptures have always been eye-catching and strangely fascinating.Â Her show at Iguapop will feature many detailed works that must be looked at closely to fully appreciate their intricacies.Â Examples of this after the jump.
Nate Frizzell’s “Put on a Happy Face” opens November 8th at the new Cerasoli:LeBasse gallery. He took a little time to talk with us about his first solo show. “With this show, I’m trying to convey the mixed emotions that people have from day to day. Some may be depressing, some happy, some scared, and some brave. I feel like for myself, my mood is constantly changing, and I act accordingly. I put on a different mask to let people know where I stand at […]
This Saturday, Ad Hoc Art will be opening “In The Language of Angels“. With six young and extremely talented artists from around the world: Sarah Joncas (Canada), Camilla d’Errico (Canada), Mia (USA), Lisa Alisa (Russia), Mijn Schatje (France) and Simone Maynard (Australia), it should be exciting to see each of them display the softer “angelic” side of Pop Surrealism.Â Â We’ve gathered some special preview images of the pieces that will be on display at the show after the jump.
One of the shows we are looking forward to at the end of 2008 is Amy Sol’s “smoke & water” at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery.Â Some new images have surfaced besides one that we previously posted; one of which is seen on the show card above.Â The use of the tsunami theme is quite interesting as Amy rarely paints any of her characters in distress.Â Perhaps the girl and the swan-like character with the basket are there as rescuers… Also, something you should be aware of […]
Any sneakerheads out there will recognize Dave White’s oil paintings immediately.Â Perhaps generously described as the “Warhol of our generation” and well-known to the mainstream because his corporate collaborations with the likes of Nike & Coca Cola, it was actually his sneaker portraits that first attracted our attention.Â He has since moved on to other subjects such as Super Cars, Star Wars, and more recently Superhero paintings. Dave had a brief exhibition that ended last Sunday at the Kounter Kulture art fair produced by Opus […]
Last night, AM visted Bed-Stuy vanguard Brooklynite Gallery for the opening of Time Machine, featuring work by artists Dain (Brooklyn) and Various and Gould (Berlin). Dain’s offerings consisted of his characteristic colorful images of 1920’s glamour girls. Although similar to his posters wheatpasted throughout NYC, the gallery work is more ellaborate than previously seen, with more layering and detail. Various and Gould collaborated on silkscreen prints on canvas, wood and paper of chimeras of celebrity facial features superimposed with stereotype words. These IDENTIKITS are meant […]
Judging from an early look at Kukula’s body of work for her upcoming show at Copronason, perhaps we will be seeing more of the softer side from her (which we first noticed in her works for her last solo at Thinkspace). Gone are the carved out organs, gimp suits, and tortured stuffed animals… Sounds like her work was quite morbid in the past…maybe it was, but if you have ever seen it in person, you would agree that no matter the subject material, she has […]
Andy Kehoe’s work initially caught our eye because of his masterful creation of desolate yet beautiful landscapes that capture the essence of human loneliness.Â Seeing his creatures in the isolated environments prompts us think of how tiny we really are compared to the vastness of nature.Â Â What makes his work even more interesting after the first glance is that his seemingly peaceful scenes are contrasted by the undertones of unease and violence in his characters and their actions. A three-person show called “The Wonder” opens […]
