When you walk into the David Zwirner gallery in Manhattan and look at “To Wit” by Raymond Pettibon, it will suck you in instantly. Arranged in chunks of paintings, it appears as if you are walking into a comic book and only when you look closely at the subject matter in the paintings, will you find the subversiveness and wit as the title of the exhibit suggests. For those unaware of Raymond Pettibon’s art, he designed the iconic Black Flag logo for the band which could help the non-art aficionado understand the DIY and eff you establishment nature and themes in his works.

With works dealing with huge penises, non-lasting erections, calling God a homosexual and lots of commentary on society, so come to the show with an open mind and with your sense of humor!

It’s sort of hard to see in the picture, so I will explain what is going on – Jackie Robinson has just stole home! It’s not exactly Black Flag’s logo, but it beats advertising ANY DAY!

Marc Jancou Contemporary in New York is now showing an exhibit of works by Scott Campbell, Steven Parrino and Raymond Pettibon entitled “Blankness is not a Void.” I am a big fan of all three artists so I was very excited to check out this exhibit. Of course, all the works from these three tremendously talented artists are great, but as I persued the gallery, I was struggling to figure out a cohesive reason for the grouping of these works together. The press release advises “the show encourages viewers to re-examine America’s ‘low’ culture.” Perhaps because I am constantly thinking of it, the theme went over my head, but as I said before, the art is great and it’s definitely worth a visit.
“Blankness is not a Void” by Scott Campbell, Steven Parrino and Raymond Pettibon is showing at Marc Jancou Contemporary (located at 524 West 24th Street in Manhattan) until June 4, 2011. Don’t miss it!
