Winston Chmielinski Ecstatic Skin @ Envoy Enterprises

Posted December 3rd by in Art

Envoy Enterprises presents Ecstatic Skin, Winston Chmielinski’s first solo exhibition in New York. Chmielinski’s paintings indiscriminately engage figuration and abstraction by using color and form to create emotionally-charged re-imaginings of the familiar. This exhibition presents the artist’s continued investigations of the body as well as its surrogate forms in nature, with a focus on plants and lighted expanses. Ecstatic Skin will be on view until  December 31, 2012 at Envoy Enterprises, 87 Rivington Street, New York, NY. Photographs by Annabel Graham. See more photos after the jump. [CLICK HERE...]

Takashi Murakami Flowers and Skulls at Gagosian Hong Kong

Posted November 30th by in Art

This exhibition, Takashi Murakami’s first in Hong Kong, explores one of the central dichotomies of his art—between joy and terror, his optimistic magnanimity as an artist and his pessimistic perspective on postwar Japan. Here, this dichotomy is symbolized by the stark contrast of bright smiling flowers and disturbing, menacing representations of skulls. Flowers and Skulls will be on view until February 9, 2012, at Gagosian Gallery, 7/F Pedder Building, 12 Pedder Street Central, Hong Kong 


[FIRST LOOK] Music Video for Jessica Holter Goddess Eyes II

Posted November 30th by in Music

Julia Holter and director Yelena Zhelezov have collaborated once again in video form. Having previously worked together on the video for Moni Mon Amie from Holter’s 2012 album Ekstasis, the two Los Angeles-based artists (and friends) constructed a landscape over which Holter’s all-seeing eye purveys the predictable events turned inexplicably preposterous. “The video for Julia’s ‘Goddess Eyes II’ is inspired by the Latin phrase ‘deus ex machine,’” says Zhelezov. “In theater, deus ex machina is plot device for seemingly unresolvable dramaturgical situations. The video is in tribute to Euripides and the literary spirit of the song that the video was conceived and directed.The video is Holter’s sixth and final video from Ekstasis.
