The Post-Post-Modern

When did modern end? And what do we call this new nonsense in art & archiecture?

Bing Wrights: Broken Mirror / Evening Sky , 2012

James Harris Gallery is pleased to present Broken Mirror/Evening Sky, a new series of striking landscape photographs by New York based artist Bing Wright. Departing from his usual pared down images in grey palettes, Wright offers us moving skyscape photographs of richly colored sunsets reflected onto broken mirrors. This new body of work marks his first return to color photography in almost a decade.

Anya Gallaccio, preserve ‘beauty’, 1991-2003, gerberas, glass, metal and rubber, Tate

Gallaccio is known for her work with organic materials such as ice, flowers, fruits and sugar. Her installations often change over time as they melt, decompose or sprout new life. In preserve ‘beauty’ 2000 gerberas are sandwiched between huge panes of glass and left to wither and rot. Gallaccio has described gerberas as a ‘disposable commodity’, mass-produced all year round. Her work challenges romantic ideas of nature and culture, life and death. This was first displayed in the window of a London gallery, where it became a metaphor for Gallaccio’s perception of the male-dominated art scene.

I have seen this artwork and surprisingly, it doesn’t smell as much as you’d think it would!

"Defacement of currency is a violation of Title 18, Section 333 of the United States Code. Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months."

Wow, Take it easy, USA.  

Some of these bills from artist James Charles are worth risking a 6 month stint in the big house.

The above works are from his “333 Portraits on the Devil’s Toilet Paper” solo show currently on view NYC’s Art Now Gallery through September 28th.

Also represented by San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery, James Charles is a known fixture in the realm of money artists, cutting, cross hatching, and defacing our Lincolns, Hamiltons, Jacksons, & Benjamins, into pop culture phenoms

Gravity-Defying Land Art by Cornelia Konrads

German artist  creates mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view.

montreal street artist roadsworth tries not only to beautify the urban landscape, often by incorporating existing street markings, but to also make a statement about the illusory urban disconnect from the natural environment. his (literal) street art is both a reclamation of a public space that as cyclists and pedestrians we are taught is dangerous, and a response to the primacy afforded to a car culture that largely dictates the planning of this public space. for his efforts, roadsworth was charged with 53 counts of mischief in 2004.

I think if the world had more art like this, people would be happier.

Rik Garrett - Symbiosis (2010-11)

Artist’s statement: 

"An integral concept of Alchemy is ‘Solve et Coagula’ – dissolve and combine.  This is the secret key to manifesting the Philosopher’s Stone, Elixr of Life and immortality. This ideal is represented with the image of the Rebis – a two-headed hermaphrodite that holds the assets of both genders."

This is the best. World-renowed artist Banksy's newest mobile art installation, entitled “Sirens of the Lambs,” will be driving around New York for the next two weeks. 

I can’t wait to see how the city (especially the children), reacts to this thought-provoking exhibition. The stuffed animals even make noise, so pedestrians can’t miss them!

Watch the video and check out the truck in action on Banksy’s website here!

Emptied Gestures.

Utilizing her body movements, Heather Hansen creates breathtaking, large scale charcoal paintings. In 2012 she began experimenting with kinetic drawing and has been searching for ways to combine her passion for visual art and dance. The idea for the series ‘Emptied Gestures’ was sparked on a trip to the beach. Whilst dancing on the beach she noticed that the lines carved in the sand by her turns had an interesting quality. She explains her work as follows: ‘Emptied Gestures is an experiment in kinetic drawing. In this series, I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another and creating something new in the process.’
