Alexandros Vasmoulakis Figures @ LeBasse Projects

Posted February 13th by in Art

Alexandros_Vasmoulakis_Figures_LeBasse_Projects

LeBasse Projects presents a solo exhibition by multi-disciplinary artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis. The exhibition will feature muralist and installation artist Vasmoulakis’ new series, entitled Figures, comprised of compelling figural work partly inspired by the tradition of portraiture. Vasmoulakis’ paintings contain many layers—physically, in terms of their thick impasto and textural buildup of paint, and also metaphorically. At the outset, the figures are smiling, a nod to the traditional purpose of portraiture as a showcase of one’s ideal or idealized comportment. However, the grinning and laughing expressions are menacingly exaggerated and recall the distorted visages of tortured souls in Francis Bacon’s deeply psychological portraits and self-portraits. In the case of Vasmoulakis’ personas, the turmoil does not come from an inner psyche, but from the outside influences of contemporary society, consumer culture and the media machine as the figures vapidly laugh, pose and posture. Alexandros Vasmoulakis Figures will be on view until February 23, 2013 at Le Basse Projects, 6023 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA

Set by Liz Glynn

Deviating from the standard white box of exhibiting shows, curators Lauren Mackler and Andrew Berardini invited four Los Angeles-based artists to create sets for showcasing other artists’ works. At once puzzling and defusing, some sets interweave consciousness with their assigned works while others sweep pieces into a bizarre narrative. Barely lit up by gel-filtered stage lights, the show reads part Universal Studios, part journey into a TV-fueled collective subconscious. Sets by Sarah Cain, Liz Glynn, Samara Golden, and Mateo Tannatt and works by the likes of Raymond Pettibon. Set Pieces, curated by Andrew Berardini and Lauren Mackler will be on view until April 2015, at Cardi Black Box Corso di Porta Nuova, 38 Milano.

Cyprien Gaillard The Crystal World @ MOMA PS1

Posted February 12th by in Art

Cyprien_Gaillard_Crystal_World_MOMA_PS1

Cyprien Gaillard’s (b. 1980, Paris) work navigates geographical sites and psychological states, addressing the relationship between architecture and nature, and evolution and erosion. Using a variety of artistic mediums ranging from painting and sculpture to photography, film, and video, Gaillard juxtaposes pictorial beauty and the atmospherically lush with elements of sudden violence, destruction, and idiosyncrasy culled from popular culture, pointing to the precarious nature of public space, social ritual, and the very viability of the notion of civilization. Cyprien Gaillard The Crystal World is on view until March 18, 2013 at MOMA PS1, 4601 21st St  Long Island City, NY
