The Sensual World

"The Sensual Presidents of the United States (1984)" by Eric Timothy Carlson. He took a presidential calendar and replaced all their faces with roses.


Here are some pictures that I took from the Synch Space opening two Saturdays ago to cobble together a follow up post albeit, ahem, very tardy (the show closed this past Saturday). It was really hilarious and awesome to see so many different interpretations of Kate Bush’s image and persona. Though, to tell you the truth, I don’t know too much about her and read up only about her the day before the opening (yikes!). I hope you won’t judge me on that admission tooo much.

Sean Fader

Marshall_MG_7784_2

Sean Fader’s background in performance had a heavy hand on the focus of his photography. His consistently conceptually strong pieces of work usually deal with the identity of his self, and the self perceived by those around him. What originally drew me into his work was his series, I Want To Put You On, where he explores the idea of becoming the people he personally admires.

Phil Hale

Phil Hale, a London based illustrator, knows what to do. His illustrations are incredibly rich with disjointed movement, explosive energy, and raw masculinity that which all combines into an overwhelming visit to drama itself.

Jen Mann’s Women and Nature In A White Fog

It looks like painter Jen Mann has been quite busy since we first posted her paintings of women and animals in 2009. Her new work expands on those themes but this time with a powerfully stark white palette that is just plain gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next!

Ethan Hayes-Chute

Ethan Hayes-Chute

Very cool paintings and mixed-media work from artist Ethan Hayes-Chute. Working out of Freeport, Maine, and Berlin, Germany, he also creates artist’s books and large-scale installations that explore ideas of self-sufficiency, self-preservation and self-exclusion as models for living. Best of all, he possess an incredible double-barreled last name, so of course we had to give this man a shout out.

Nina Chanel Abney

Nina Chanel Abney, a New York based painter, creates these amazingly bold, and politically charged pieces of work. Incredibly blunt with a mix of clever symbolism (such as rubber gloves to represent “dirty work.”)

The Collages Of David Kettner

David Kettner of Philadelphia, has amassed an incredible array of work from over 50 years of art-making on his new website. The conclusion of his tenure as the head of both the Fine Arts and Drawing/Painting program at the University of the Arts has given birth to a cataloging of his life’s work. In reference to his recent work, he provides a concise objective:

“The priority… is to secure a paradoxical and maybe enigmatic alliance between the world of the child and the world of the adult.”

PAUL DEMURO

Straight out of Rutger’s MFA Painting program, Paul DeMuro is creating some wildly thick paintings. The first time I ever saw his work was at Jolie Laide’s Tri-State show, and he flat-out stole the show. These paintings are way too physically powerful for the internet to capture any of the ka-pow they possess, but you can still get a general feel for these high-energy works. Unfortunately, he just finished up a two-man show with Alex Da Corte at Jolie Laide, entitled BLEACH, but I’m sure he’ll have plenty of future shows so you can get a chance to check out his work in its proper environment (a primer).
