Openings: Stephan Doitschinoff – Novo Asceticismo @ Jonathan LeVine

It’s been a while since we caught up with Stephan Doitschinoff (aka Calma). The Brazilian artist last showed with Jonathan Levine Gallery back in 2008 (covered) but now is back with a new series entitled Novo Asceticismo, which hits religious themes via mixed-media works rich in symbolism and highlighted by Latin text. Doitschinoff reflects on the sacrifice and deprivation necessary for the modern man to continue and live purely despite a society filled with vices and common mental traps.

Openings: Shag and Calma @ Jonathan LeVine

Last night, AM was on hand at Jonathan LeVine for the preview of two great shows, Shag’s Voyeur (previewed/interviewed) and Stephan “Calma” Doitschinoff’s Novo Mundo. Shag’s work is nothing less than magnetic from the second one enters the gallery. Each painting is sharp and vibrant in its given color palette, and all the works together form a rainbow that shocks the viewer’s senses! (Think of a “mod” fiesta for the eyes.) In addition to the paintings, there is an installation room, with floating metallic fishes […]
