Jean-Pierre Roy

Jean-Pierre Roy’s insanely gorgeous luminescent paintings might just combine all of my favorite topics. Painted like translucent homages to Romantic pastoralism, they appear to instead catalog mystical scenes of revelation, post-2012 apocalypse. Grand, cinematic, magical, laced with the alien race, these glowing, transcendent Titian-esque tableaus are haunting and inspiring all at once.

If you’re in NYC, his exhibition at Rare Gallery opens Sept. 9 and runs until October 7. I wish I could see these in person!

I wouldn’t mind watching commercials 24/7 if they all were filled with explosions, fire, and controlled chaos.

Studio Visit: Wendell Gladstone

Wendell Gladstone painting studio visit

I first met Wendell after we interviewed him for an issue of B/D a few years back. You never know what artists will be like when you actually meet them but Wendell’s been one of the most sincere artists I’ve met in a while. We’ve been trading studio visits for around a year now and will be in a group show together later this month at Pedersen Projects in Pomona. Wendell is also getting ready for a solo show in October at Kravets|Wehby and a group show at Galerie Jean-Luc&Takako Richard in Paris┬áso I stopped by his studio to check out the progress. Turns out Wendell had a studio jam packed full of massive paintings well on their way to being finished.

Jason Matthew Vivona

I am transfixed to Jason Matthew Vivona’s dense, psychedelic portfolio of work. There is just so much going on! At first glance I thought I saw a parade of body organs, but upon closer inspection, I noticed beautiful works of intricate detailing, patterns, colors, etc. It’s kind of difficult to imagine this is all from tea, wine, coffee, or whatever Jason was drinking at the time. I wonder what he is drinking right now…

Issac Cordal

London based artist Issac Cordal created a series of small (but very interesting) installations titled, Cement Eclipses. Through this series, Issac explores the relationship between urban spaces and humans slowly becoming part of its furniture. Cement Eclipses started in 2006 as a nomad project, but its photographs were later realized around 2009.

Grace Miceli is an artist based over at Burlington, Vermont. I am really enjoying her portfolio of collage, and photographs. Her collages in particular are pretty interesting as they range from satirical to full of humor.
