Namaste!  Welcome to the temple!  Artist Peter Anton has created a very tantalizing new exhibit at Unix Gallery in New York entitled “Foodhist Temple” and you will not want to miss it.  At the entrance to the gallery, which has been completely covered in red carpeting with the walls painted red, you are asked to take your shoes off.

As you walk inside the shrine, instead of seeing your typical religious fare, you see life-like (but larger than life) sculptures of what Americans really worship these days – FOOD!  Bacon, donuts, pizza, hamburgers, chocolates as well as cake are on display. For those who want to have a “foodhist religious experience” (so to speak), pillows have been laid out across the gallery/temple floor, so the viewer can spend time worshiping these objects.

As you can see in this picture, the sculptures are enormous, and yet look life like.  Peter Anton used resin, metal, wood, clay and acrylic for the works in this show.

Again, to show you the perspective of how big these sculptures are, here’s a picture of Gail Worley worshiping at the altar of bacon.  This is definitely the Bacon Thing of the Day.

New York!  Head over to Unix Gallery to see a great and controversial exhibit by Spanish artist Eugenio Merino entitled “Always Shameless.”  In the exhibit he takes the bodies of world dictators and preserves their bodies not in a cryogenics chamber, but instead inside a Coca-Cola refrigerator.  Genius!

Merino has been under fire in his native Spain several times for his depiction of Fransisco Franco and twice has been had to go to court to defend his freedom of speech and twice has been victorious!  Go Eugenio!!!

New York!  One of the first must see exhibits of the year is finally upon us!  Street artist and musician turned gallery artist Desire Obtain Cherish has just opened his first solo show in New York and you will not want to miss it.  Entitled “We Are Known by the Company We Keep” at Unix Gallery, the show is brilliant in every way.  Desire Obtain Cherish explores the phoniness of the art world (hence the title of the exhibit) with his take on mega-famous artists, critics and consumerism.  All the works in the show will make you smile and probably throw up in your mouth a little when you take a deeper look at his works and the bold statement he is making about the world we live in.

I strongly urge you to check out this show and if you are not in the New York area, check out DOC’s official website and I am sure you will agree that every work he does is absolutely genius!

Desire Obtain Cherish agreed to be photographed at the opening night reception and interestingly enough, the lighting sort of shaded his face, thus keeping up his street artist anonymity.  In the photo below, you can take a sneak peak of a live installation of his take on artists that use factories to produce “their own” art.

Justin Bower: Panic Room

Head over to the Unix Gallery in New york for a visually stimulating exhibit by Justin Bower entitled “Panic Room.”  Each art work is quite large and there is so much detail in every painting, you will wish you were locked in a panic room surrounded by these gorgeous works.

EXTREME CLOSEUP!

Even with this extreme closeup shot, you still cannot see all the detail, so once again, I encourage you to look at these works of art in person.
