• C.W.Lübeck: Intense Phases

      Monday, 13 August 2012 14:23

      C.W.Lübeck’s painting Time of Innocence reflects this sense of alienation. In this work, the artist captures a melancholic portrayal of an anonymous person. With halved face, part cerulean blue and part blue grey, there is a sense of fragmentation, a rupture in one’s life.  The blue-grey half is expressionless and youthful; its other half features […]

    • Petrit Helilaj: House and Memory

      Thursday, 9 August 2012 16:21

      Petrit Halilaj does not shy away from using his personal biography as a source for his work. The Kosovan artist’s childhood memories, centered on the drama of war and the subsequent refugee tragedy, are the inspiration for his creation of complex and often monumental installations. For him, the search for home is still a significant […]

      Thursday, 9 August 2012 15:02

      Peter Dreher investigates the question of repetition, examining concurrently the validity of painting as a contemporary means of expression in art. His series of miniatures, Die Kleeblume (The Clover Flower), produced from 1976 to 2011, is indicative of his steadfast production beyond the art market hype and sits alongside his most famous series,Tag um Tag […]

    • David Altmejd & Lizi Sanchez in London

      Tuesday, 7 August 2012 14:50

      Pearl on white, On Stripes, On Chocolate Brown and Pistachio On White is another sculpture that sits like an abstracted slice of tactile, sumptuous material. Functioning as both plinth and sculpture, an over-sized cartoonish pearl balances on a sheet of aluminum foil, which could almost have been cut from a Daniel Buren wallpaper (if it […]

    • Enterprising at Envoy

      Tuesday, 31 July 2012 18:43

      Before I came to the city, I would spend most of my days and nights browsing through websites of innumerable New York galleries. Envoy Enterprises was one that I would visit quite often. As silly as it may sound, I remember always using images off of the site as background images for my mac book […]

    • On The (W)hole

      Tuesday, 31 July 2012 18:26

      When Deitch closed, the community of artists I had been supporting needed a gallery to continue and fill the hole that Deitch left, so I became an art dealer. I curate those shows here, and still participate in curating shows on an international level, but I focus more on selling art. The Hole is unique […]

    • Dodge Gallery Gives a Shit

      Tuesday, 31 July 2012 17:30

      I don’t find anything to be more compelling, perplexing, challenging, exciting, or moving than art. There aren’t many spaces in life that allow for something so entirely impractical to exist. In what other arena is it acceptable to knit with excavators and telephone poles, for example? Creative thinkers and visionaries are the ones who shape […]

    • In Conversation: Michael Shaw Interviews Fritz Chestnut

      Tuesday, 31 July 2012 17:04

      I first encountered your work in its abstract phase, that is post-2008, and now the abstraction is the work that you are known for, at least in Los Angeles. Do you embrace having two distinctly different periods in your work, or is there part of you that wants to put the first phase behind you […]
