Head over to Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York to see the latest exhibit from Walton Ford entitled “Watercolors.”  Even if you are not really into art, you might recognize Walton Ford’s art as he recently provided the artwork for the 50th Anniverary of the Rolling Stones’ greatest hits collection “Grrr!”

There was a lot of glare (and a really crowded gallery), so these photos are not the greatest, but the good news is, you can see these works in person at Paul Kasmin Gallery (located at 293 Tenth Avenue) in Chelsea.  “Watercolors” by Walton Ford is on display through June 21, 2014.

If you are a fan of the surrealistic photographs of David LaChapelle (not to be confused with the comedian whose name is similar but not and it’s unbelievable how many people mix the two up), you will also enjoy his latest exhibit “Land Scape” at Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York.

The sites depicted in this exhibit are of gas stations and refineries and when you take a closer look, you will see that the objects that make up these structures are soda cans, straws and other items that typically spend more time on this planet in land fills than being useful items.

As always with Lachapelle’s works, the photos are very large and really must be seen in person to grasp detail of each work.  The opening night party was filled with LaChapelle’s admirers from Amanda Lepore to artist Mark Ryden.  It was quite a scene.

Despite being pretty mobbed, David LaChapelle was extremely nice to everyone and even posed for a photo with yours truly.  Thanks David!

Good news and bad news.  The good news is Taner Ceylan’s exhibit “The Lost Paintings Series” at the Paul Kasmin Gallery was extremely cool.  The bad news is, I caught the exhibit on it’s final day so you will have to rely on online images or wait for the next Taner Ceylan exhbit to see his works in person.

Taner Ceylan’s paintings look like photographs and in this particular exhibit, you will see images that surely offend the closed-minded.  The characters in the paintings are often found doing acts that might be considered too taboo for the cultures they come from.  As you are aware, a big eff you to squashing people’s inherent nature ranks extremely high in my book.

Not much needs to be said about “Colorfall” by Ian Davenport which is showing at Paul Kasmin Gallery (located at 293 Tenth Avenue) because the works can speak for themselves.  If you love geometric, mind-bending and extremely colorful paintings as I do, you will not want to miss this exhibit.  However, if that ain’t your bag baby, then you probably won’t get that much enjoyment out of “Colorfall.”  Read more about the exhibit here.
