Berthold Reiß - SVPERFLAX - Galerie Christine Mayer - Munich

through January 11th 2014

To look at works of art from an economic perspective not least includes abstracting from the life they emerged from. According to Werner Hofmann John Flaxman meets this relationship with economy on eye level: “Formal economy depends on the artistic means of abstraction.” In this series of oil paintings presented by Galerie Christine Mayer Berthold Reiß traces this line, not leading from life to death but from death to life.

Tobias Spichtig - 11 Rivington - NYC


through January 5th 2014

The artist’s practice is fuelled by its continuous circulation of media, formats, and materials. The constant within his work is an aesthetic claim upon form.  His conscious awareness of the generation of images goes back to the aesthetic understanding that characterizes today’s visual culture: the overlaying of information, and its simultaneous, multiple representations.  Spichtig’s concept thereby becomes a concentrated potentiality that induces, in its precision, new avenues of thought and jokes. And that is exactly what happens in the exhibition, the city, the jungle, and indeed in our thinking: something like reality is generated by chance.

Josephine Meckseper - Andrea Rosen - NYC

through January 18, 2014

Meckseper’s new work attempts to construct the present as archaeology and to create a window into a historic past at the same time. The exhibition will feature large-scale vitrines, mirror wall panels and photographic works that reveal a historical link between contemporary consumer display forms and their early 20th century precursors. While Meckseper’s earlier vitrine works commented on contemporary consumer culture using the shop window as an example and focus point for civic unrest and protest in our late capitalist society, her current works allude to the political dimension of early modernist display architecture and design between World War I and II in Weimar Germany.

Tony Oursler - Glare Schematics - Albert Baronian - Brussels

through January 11th 2014

Encompassing the notion of identity analysis made physical in poetic multimedia schematics, these works explore the idea of making visible private psychoanalytical and genealogical maps embodied in icons of one’s past and present. Oursler suggests an interlocking chain of influences as mnemonic images ranging from body parts, masks, stock mythological characters, serpents, demons, family portraits, abstract lights and celestial bodies are all connected via metallic vectors which define the associative links. Oursler asks, “who are we at any given moment, and how did we become what we are?”

through January 11, 2014     

Six short films – Jessica Warboys  Using a succession of almost still sequences that record slow actions versus their contrary within rigorous compositions, Warboys’ films can be considered as an ensemble of filmic tableaux, which attempt to represent something indiscernible and ineffable through the immensity of nature and the role given to her enigmatic object-actors and performers.

Rob Pruitt - The Suicide Paintings - Massimo DeCarlo - London


through November 30th 2013

In the new paintings, two gradient fields of colour are juxtaposed, creating a picture within a frame.  The images suggest both heavenly and hellish vistas, evoking everything from the clouds in a Botticelli painting to the screensaver on an iPad. While the gradient fields suggest depictions of space and the changing times of day, they are also a visual metaphor for transitioning psychological states.

Abstraction/Figuration - Sterling Ruby/Joe Bradley - Inigo Philbrick - London


through December 19th 2013

Abstraction/Figuration surveys two distinct bodies of work by American artists Joe Bradley and Sterling Ruby. The exhibition displays examples from Bradley’s iconic ‘Robot’ painting series, alongside Ruby’s enigmatic ‘Alabaster’ works. While starkly different in appearance, these two bodies engage with legacies of Minimalism in different ways. Bradley’s seemingly primitive figurations of monochromatically rendered canvases stand like bathetic monuments to modern painting. The shapes are at once infantile and domineering, reminiscent both of colour-field painting, and the building-block aesthetic of arcade video games.

Tabor Robak: Next-Gen Open Beta - Team - NYC

through January 12th 2014

Tabor Robak’s work employs computer generated imaging to create videos of invented worlds. Working in programs including Unity, After Effects, Photoshop and Cinema 4D, the artist explores a secondary, digital reality, rendered in what he refers to as a “Photoshop tutorial aesthetic” or a “desktop screensaver aesthetic.” His meticulously produced and filmed environments are cobbled together from sources both sampled and hand-modeled. The works are appropriative, both in their subject matter and aesthetic, using elements purchased and then edited for his purposes. They adopt the visual vocabulary of contemporary video games in order to isolate and comment upon digital space as an abstract fact, while simultaneously pushing up against the increasingly tenuous separation between perceptions of the digital and the real.

Brice Marden: Graphite Drawings - Matthew Marks - LA

through December 21st 2013

Matthew Marks is pleased to announce Brice Marden: Graphite Drawings, the next exhibition in his gallery at 523 West 24th Street.This exhibition includes twenty-five of Brice Marden’s seminal early works on paper and is the first exhibition devoted solely to this body of work. The drawings, made between 1962 and 1981, feature luxurious surfaces of graphite and beeswax worked into dense, reflective planes of blacks, whites, and grays. Within these surfaces, Marden reveals the underlying geometries of the rectangle and the grid, a formal strategy that has characterized his work from the 1960s to the present.

Ericka Beckman & Mike Kelley, Nicolas Ceccaldi, Karl Holmqvist, Lucie Stahl  

Cities of chrome, perpetual motion machines. All prying objects, all things striving to trespass are diminishing. All that has reached beyond the tactile senses to the abstractions of sight.

(...)

These are the mysterious incantations of an alien sexuality.

Ulrich Wulff: Wulff's Artistic Training Facility, Chambless, CA - Tif Sigfrids - LA

through December 22th 2013

In the summer of 2013, Wulff arrived in America from his native Germany intent on realizing a series of large-format oil paintings at a remote desert studio in Chambless, California- a ghost town of less then 10 residents along a strip of the well known, but seldom traveled Route 66 highway.  Working in an abandoned gas station, Wulff completed a number of watercolor studies in Chambless before retreating to a more conventional painter's studio in Los Angeles after encountering numerous conflicts with his materials due to arid, high desert winds.  Although finally completed off-site from the artist's rural training facility, the oil-based works that eventuated in LA were nonetheless informed by Wulff's hermetic sojourn to Chambless, where he cultivated an interest in exploring the quintessence of desert qualities like passivity, silence, recalcitrance, egolessness, vacuity, tranquility and even boredom.
