“Listen and Learn” by Jeremy Fish

"Listen and Learn" by Jeremy Fish. Now showing at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC through July 16, 2011

There’s a lot going on in San Francisco artist Jeremy Fish’s latest exhibit “Listen and Learn” at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York.  First off is the amazing work of Fish.  His works feature strange characters and whimsical colors.  The first room in the gallery has headphones under each work of art whereby you put them on and listen to a story about the work you are viewing.  The tales are told by various people including artists Ron English, Alex Pardee as well as Snoop Dogg and sometimes the stories are true and sometimes they are incredulous.

I spoke with Jeremy Fish at the opening and he said that he liked the idea of keeping the notion of storytelling alive because we live in the MTV short attention span generation.  When you enter the gallery, rather than the usual way where your eye is drawn to one painting and there are some works you might skip over because they don’t grab you on first glance, this exhibit gives each work an interesting story to discover.  You should also allow yourself plenty of time when you come to see this exhibit because there are around 30 works of art for you to view, listen and learn.

In the back room of the gallery, looks like a cross section of a tree house in a forest (complete with Astro-turf).  These works are a selection of an upcoming animation and installation project.  It’s also pretty cool as the walls are painted and there are also paintings on the walls.  It’s hard to tell from the above picture but in the center of the white circles are more of Jeremy Fish’s paintings.  Again, the exhibit is very cool and you shouldn’t miss it.  “Listen and Learn” by Jeremy Fish runs until July 16, 2011 at the Joshua Liner Gallery (located at 548 West 28th Street, 3rd Floor) in New York.
