Go Figure and Ted Gahl on the Lower East Side

There’s a pretty great pair of painting shows on the Lower East Side in NYC at Dodge GalleryTed Gahl is in the front room with his cryptic, interpretive and symbolic paintings.  I was drawing with him once, and he drew something that looked like a mysterious jelly bean, using a marker on construction paper.  I was curious so I asked Ted what it was, and told me it was a car mirror reflecting the driver.  Go Figure is group show curated by Eddie Martinez, and it has a bunch of artists that have appeared on Beautiful/Decay’s website and in the book series.  There is some very choice work too, it’s interesting to see the work together as well.  After the jump you can see work by Allison Schulnik, Erik Parker, Jamison Brosseau, and Jose Lerma.  Both shows are up until November 13th.

Ashley Zelinskie is making art for computers

Ashley Zelinskie is making art for computers.  I admit when she told me about it, I was a little freaked out.  Basically, she constructs three-dimensional sculpture on the computer, then has it printed in three-dimensions.  It consists of a form humans understand, like a chair, and a code computers can understand too.  Zelinskie also makes “paintings” which consist of a series of numbers, after the jump you can see Van Gogh’s Starry Night recoded for artificial intelligence.
