Taking Your Shit | Tony Shore

“They don’t photograph well,” Tony Shore says, laughing, “so I need to get people in front of them.” Looking at the image printed on the press release, then looking at the work itself, it’s easy to see how right he is. Each work is done on black velvet. A harsh source of light softly diffuses to an edge of darkness where it is swallowed into an all-consuming black such that the scenes appear to float...

Thank you to Anthony Haden-Guest for this great article discussing Johan's Wahlstrom's solo exhibition at Ethan Cohen KuBe. 

"There are artists who like to investigate what they can do with current tech, the way Warhol made movies, as David Hockney has used video and seemingly just about any device that comes his way, as Richard Prince uses Instagram and as a slew of artists are using Photoshop but not that many artists have thoug...



Born in Abidjan (the capital of Ivory Coast) in 1983, ABOUDIA produces lively and childlike paintings that seem loosely inspired by the works of Jean Dubuffet and Jean-Michel Basquiat. ABOUDIA is one of the few African Contemporary artists to have gallery representation in both Britain (the Jack Bell Gallery in London) and the US (the Ethan Cohen Gallery in New York). His giant mural-like paintings are borrowed from the g...

Thank you to artnet news for including Chi Ming as an artist to see at this years Art Miami!

"Amid the many splashy works on view at Art Miami, Ming’s diminutive, diamond-shaped canvases with deft brushstrokes stand out. His subject matter homes in on ordinary, everyday scenes of life in China. He also paints scenes from his childhood, and fading memories of his family which impart a melancholy, nostalgic air."
