Really late on this one as the exhibition curated by Roger Gastman at Jonathan Levine Gallery closed last Saturday. But hey, the show can still live on via the internet.
Go With The Flow is a group show currently on view at The Hole that explores the use of sprayed paint by 19 contemporary artists. Ranging from atomized paint traditionally used on automotives, to airbrush and aerosol, the show’s works come to life on walls covered in plastic sheeting that one can only assume were placed to mimic the environment where the art was created, and not for cleaning up a Patrick Bateman type slaughter. Go With The Flow runs through August 23, 2014.
A very nice group show featuring Andrew Schoultz, Sam Friedman, Guy Yanai, Robert Larson, Michael Theodore, Erin M. Riley, and Kristen Schiele. On view at Joshua Liner Gallery through August 27th, 2014.
By painting with light in the darkroom, Dave Schubert turns honest moments in public—captured by a quick eye and shutter finger—into dark, private pictures full of mystery. On view at MUDDGUTTS through August 8th.
A group show at Bill Brady KC featuring Erik Parker, Tomoo Gokita, KAWS, and Todd James. On view through August 9, 2014.
What are “Neanderthal Jeans” and how can I get a pair?
Probably baggy acid washed, or a dockers hybrid.
How did you come up with the title?
It just came in the air, poof. You can just reach out and grab these things. I let myself act as primal as I need to be in studio…
The show features a lot of sculpture, it’s a fairly new medium for you. What made you take the leap from painting to the third dimension?
I had a painting block that went from a normal amount of time to a depressing amount, so I started making small table top sculptures outta beach finds and other materials.
You’re incorporating a lot of found objects into the work, some seem nautically inspired while others seem to reference tennis. Am I completely out of my mind or is that a keen observation?
Both spot-on observations, it’s that #islandstyle.
How is your tennis game these days, btw?
Fine. I want it to be much better, but it’s such a great sport.
In the tradition of many greats before you, you’re spending the Summer working out East on Long Island. Do you notice any shifts in what you’re making out there as opposed to Brooklyn?
I don’t know. I think if I were to notice, it’ll happen once I am working in the city again in the fall. Things are really opening up in the images now though.
After this show closes, what’s next for you?
A show in LA and then one in London…
