Self-proclaimed news junkie and fellow California boy (I’m only the latter) Fred Tomaselli has a really cool new exhibit entitled “Current Events” at James Cohan Gallery in New York.  In this exhibit, you’ll find Fred Tomaselli re-imagining New York Times cover stories in the most colorful way possible, but there are also many large scale works that have so much detail that they will need to be seen in person to grasp their epic proportions.

There is so much detail and so many layers to Tomaselli’s works, I highly recommend you see these great works of art in person!

Distillation by Roxy Paine. Now showing at James Cohan Gallery in New York through December 11, 2010

New York museum lovers will probably recall artist Roxy Paine’s insanely cool exhibit “Maelstrom” that was on the roof of the Met last summer.  The artist is back with another really great exhibit called “Distillation,” at the James Cohan Gallery in New York.  The single piece starts at the front door of the gallery and continues all the way through to the back offices.  The word “cool” does not even come close to being the right way to describe this work, so obviously you’ll have to see it with your own eyes.

A partial view of a miniature sculpture of the entire piece.

As luck would have it, I visited “Distillation” on opening night and I met artist Roxy Paine.  He was very nice.  Unfortunately, everyone was clawing for a piece of him so I didn’t get to express how cool I think his work is, so I am saying it now!  Thanks again Mr. Paine.

“Distillation” is now showing at James Cohan Gallery in New York until December 11, 2010, located at 533 West 26th Street in New York.

Foreclosed by Alison Elizabeth Taylor

Foreclosed by Alison Elizabeth Taylor now at the James Cohan Gallery in NYC through June 19, 2010.

In American artist Alison Elizabeth Taylor’s latest solo exhibition “Foreclosed,” which is now showing at the James Cohan Gallery in New York, Taylor predicts the future.  I keep reading on the internet that some time in 2011, a major real estate crash is going to happen – so it must be true.  They always say that life imitates art and in addition to being a brilliant artist, Alison Elizabeth Taylor will soon be seen as a visionary.  Her style is really interesting in that she uses a technique that was popularized in the Renaissance period whereby she uses wood inlay in her works.  There are many other cool works in this exhibit that are not pictured here, so head on over to the James Cohan Gallery at 533 West 26th Street to see this exhibit.  Foreclosed runs until June 19, 2010.

Tapestry by avaf.

What a tangled web we weave! There’s a really awesome exhibit of tapestries at the James Cohan Gallery in Chelsea that runs until February 13, 2010.  Words cannot express how cool these are, so I’ll shut up and just show you some pictures!  See more after the jump.
