Was fun to see some old faces & catch up with a couple of friends not seen for a minute.
Below are few works that were either beautiful, funny, or both.
Stunning new works from local artist Daniel B. Horowitz, who is now represented by possibly my fave french gallery, L'Inlassable Galerie.
Joseph Aloi aka JK5, artist, friend & fellow Star Wars obsessive, is about to drop his second monograph.
It's a beautiful book of sketches, tattoos, drawings, pairings, and objects - published by Rizzoli.
I'm feeling a little like a proud daddy, as I made the intro for Joseph to the prestigious publisher.
Below are just a few sample pages...
One of my favorite NYC artists shows a wonderful body of work at Sandra Gering's new gallery.
Old friend & talented curator Laura Bloom gave Max & I our own tour & back room view of some great works not on the walls.
The show runs till March 29th, & def worth the trip uptown.
Below are just some of the works in the show. The first 3 images are canvasses, the others are smaller works on paper.
Super happy to have caught this show, as it only has one day left!
I've been a fan of Burden since I read about his 1971 "Shoot" work, which will be included in my upcoming book. The exhibition was extra fun, as I was being given a couple of insider facts by artist James Hyde, Max's best friend Silas's dad. James also perfectly described a lot of the show, as if if was from the imagination of twelve year old boy.
“The Big Wheel,” from 1979, joins a large, rusty cast-iron flywheel (eight feet in diameter, three tons in weight) with a 1968 Benelli 250cc motorcycle. The bike is run for 4 minutes, and the back wheel gets the big wheel spinning. When the bike is tuned off, the wheel still silently spins for another 90 minutes.
A show based on purely how great the intro is.
The whole 3 track EP is next level shit!
Haters are going to hate, because its not skeletal.
