Even if you don’t like his art (but as you can see above and below, it’s awesome!), you will surely agree that Jerry Kearns’ latest exhibit “RRRGGHH!!!” will be the best name for an exhibit that takes place in 2014.  The show is a combination of paintings and murals featuring comic book like narratives of good versus evil that feature characters from cowboys to Jesus Christ.  Jinkies!!!!  You must see this show!

The C24 Gallery in New York has an interesting summer group show (yes, I realize those two phrases are mutually exclusive) at the moment called “Yell-o.”  It features 4 artists and here’s a bit about each one.  Nick Gentry from the UK (see above and below for a close up) uses old hard disks as a canvas.

Adele Mills

American artist Adele Mills creates multi-dimensional artworks by combining slightly different photographs of the same object or two entirely different illusions, resulting in changing, seemingly moving image. She achieves this visual effect by creating a layered visual – a digitally printed photograph based on paper or linen, merged with painted acrylics on layers of transparent silk.

Ekaterina Panikanova

Ekaterina Panikanova from Russia paints across large spreads of old books and other documents mounted on wood.

J Mikal Davis

J Mikal Davis

American artist J. Mikal Davis, who is also known as Hellbent in the world of street art, paints geometric patterns that give his works a very cool 3-D effect.

If any of these works appeal to you, there are plenty more at the C24 Gallery, which is located at 514 West 24th Street in Manhattan.  “Yell-o” is on display through August 23, 2014.

“Art Fare” by Andy Freeberg at Andrea Meislen Gallery in New York is so great!  When I first saw his works, I thought they were set up, which would have still made me love this exhibit, but after speaking with the artist at the opening night reception, I learned that he caught these amazing scenes as they happened.

Freeberg attended major art fares and was able to capture gallerists, art aficionados and workers in intimate moments setting up their shows, or in most cases – completely ignoring everything except their cell phones!  SO GOOD!!!!    Of course, it would be better if it weren’t this way, but it is and nobody wants to admit it.  But lucky there are people out there like Andy Freeberg who exposes it and shows the world how ridiculous it looks to be in an iPhone coma, especially when you are surrounded by gorgeous works of art.

New York!  Head over to Jonathan Levine Gallery to check out two interesting exhibits:  “Unforeseeable” by Rafael Silveira (covered here) and “Power Tripping” by Australian street artist Anthony Lister.  If you’re a long time reader of the site (and I thank you for your patronage), you’re familiar with Lister’s work both on the streets and in the galleries.

There are at least 30 works in “Power Tripping” and Lister has painted frames on the walls.  Photos do not do justice to his works, so I urge you to check out this exhibit in person.  Part expressionism, part Basquiat, Lister also combines using oil with spray paint, keeping it real with his street art roots.

Partial gallery view.
