Studio Visit: Aaron Johnson

aaron sitting in front of 2 new paintings Aaron Johnson’s sunny Brooklyn studio is full of riotous, colorfully undulating, larger-than-life monsters.   He’s getting ready for a show that opens next week.  Luckily, he had some paintings in progress so we can see how he puts his paint on.  Known for making paintings that are both incredibly gorgeous and politically aggressive, Johnson continues to develop and has upped the ante with his new work.  Now he’s including Old-Master appropriations, political satire, religious abominations, gender-benders, and personal references, all played out in monstrous iconography. 

Beatriz Milhazes

Beatriz Milhazes

Color is the name of the game for Beatriz Milhazes, a multidisciplinary artist from Rio de Janeiro. Wild colors in fact, and wild geometric forms to boot. Milhazes has exhibited in museums around the world and even represented Brazil at the Venice Biennale in 2003. If you are in the New York area, make sure to go and see her Gold Rose Series at James Cohan Gallery, an edition of seven silkscreen and wood block prints that were made at Durham Press in Pennsylvania.

Guitardom Superhero Ben Simon


If you thought the key-tar or Steve Vai’s triple- neck guitar was cool, try the outlandish custom musical creations of Ben Simon. They kind of look like the instruments muppets would fraggle-rock out on. The above piece also kind of looks like what San Rio’s Twin stars would shred on a cloud to. It even has a speaker built in with a sound circuit that makes a thunderclap sound! Talk about harnessing the power of Zeus! Hmm….what would your guitar look like? Mine might have to be a rhinestone studded silver leather lightening bolt that plays Queen’s “We Will Rock You” every time I do a powerslide! What’s yours…?
