Endless Summer: Prolonged Moments Among SEASON Gallery’s Paintings

A few weeks ago, I was lying out with a friend, beside a massive swimming pool, in the 108-degree heat of Las Vegas. The unrelenting desert sun splayed its dense rays over our skin with more thickness than the sunscreen we had put on in vain. Sweat came without the slightest movement. Our phones had gone black and refused to function. Yet, we stayed there for hours. Sometimes we slept, sometimes we swam, but mostly we just lay there, watching the stillness of the palm trees and of the people standing in the pool, lingering in a prolonged state of thought. I thought of that heat-induced slowness and its heightened state of perception when I was back in Seattle a week later, walking through two shows by SEASON. – Erin Langner, Seattle contributor

TOM THAYER AND DAVE MIKO: MOVING IMAGES

Tom Thayer and Dave Miko have paired up to create a series of video installations at Eleven Rivington’s exhibition space at 195 Chrystie St (the exhibition was on view through March 17th). Tom Thayer’s animations and assemblages were included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, they are a kind of dark atmospheric storytelling pulling from the language of puppetry and theatre. Dave Miko’s work is a more straight forward painting process, at times including the use of hand written text with oil on aluminum and recently, installations of wall sized drip and spray paint paintings. Miko was included in the Greater New York show at MoMA PS1 in 2010.

New American Paintings #104 Sneak Peak

Within the next few weeks the Northeast issue of New American Paintings, #104, will be received by subscribers and newsstands across the country. Juror, Nina Gara Bozicnik, Assistant Curator, Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH, spent a week selecting the artists you see below. In her essay, Nina notes, "There is no one theme that unifies the works features in these pages, but rather a shared invitation to look, feel, and thinks your way through the dynamic terrain of painting today. I based my selections on the extent to which a painting engaged my eyes, mind, and heart. I hope they have a similarly provocative and inspiring effect on you."

SAUL CHERNICK: A SKYWARD GESTURE

Saul Chernick’s current exhibition, A Skyward Gesture, at LaMontagne Gallery, consists of two bodies of work including a series of relief prints and another of ink and marker drawings with watercolor on paper.  He uses medieval landscapes and images of saints, demons, and other mythical creatures to draw connections to our contemporary situation.  Though his characters may be out of place as the prophets and other roles they might have represented in antiquity, they remain symbols of an older world, a place filled with magic and superstition.  The all seeing eyes of God, the inevitability of

PORN IN THE WOODS - DEVON DUNHILL CLAPP AT et al projects

By tackling taboo subject matter with an abject attitude, Devon Dunhill Clapp’s die weiße Schweinehund was an exciting way to end 2012. Clapp’s work is inspired by a dark side of the human experience. Internet dumping grounds like “space ghetto” and true horror stories from rides on the New York subway generate the imagery for his work.
