Valerie Hegarty’s Paintings and Installations Literally Drip out of Their Frames

Mildewed dressers are way past their peak. Desks are chopped in half. Paintings overflow.

Diggin’ on Valerie Hegerty’s works on canvas that drip and melt their way to the floor, and across the gallery spaces in which they’re installed. She perfectly captures an acidic energy. And some of the artist’s use of overgrowth is really brilliant. These make you wonder- does everyone decay and die like this eventually? Are we all just waiting to lose control of our faculties? Hegerty’s work celebrates the losses that are just as integral to life as gains.  (via)

Remedios Varos AT Frey Norris

It’s not often that we post about deceased artists but a show about the imaginatvie and bizarre work of surrealist Remedios Varo merits a mention.

The first exhibition of Remedios Varo to ever take place in the western United States, Indelible Fables at Frey Norris illuminates the ever-imaginative and prescient world of this deceased surrealist artist. Spanish born Varo certainly died prematurely, by heart-attack in 1963, but in a short career she had acquired a cult-like following among friends in Mexico City, her adopted home. Many of these friends were involved in an informal investigation into esoteric religion and the teachings of George Ivanovich Gurdjieff and his student Peter Ouspensky. As part of this soteriological pursuit, with close friend, the celebrated English artist Leonora Carrington, Varo created some of the most inventive painted scenarios of any of the artists associated with surrealism. Varo would remain something of a marginalized, but popular figure in Latin American art right through the 1990’s, when a solo exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC elevated global awareness of her work and in part catalyzed an ever accelerating level of scholarship and market demand. View the show at Frey Norris from January 19th-February 25th.

Stéphane Massa-Bidal imagines if books about the internet were published in the 1950’s/60’s. They’re so cool, heck, I’d reckon I might try the Internets if it’s just that easy!

Running until July 25th, Saturday’s opening will kick-off the celebration with a reception for the artists at 7pm and a live musical tribute at 10pm.

Welcome to Nathan Alexis Brown’s blank generation.  Where punk dudes drink forties and hang around a camp fire  with luchadores and werewolves.  All while wearing a few of the most mind blowingly cool denim vests that would even make Tezz Roberts drool.
