ZINSER'S GIANT MACRODON LANDS!


Contrary to what you might imagine in an exhibition called "Small Works: Art + Object" -this is the view of the gallery on opening night. The giant strange abstract cartoon character on the roof of Marty Walker Gallery is one of Billy Zinser's "MACRODONS", a blown-up version (pun intended) of the artist's small plastic art toys in the exhibition (also available online: www.macrodons.com). In addition to the small MACRODONS series 3 figures in the exhibition, Zinser transmogrified his thickly painted abstract forms of ambiguous objects into three-dimensional paintings, resulting in a mash-up between his playful plastic figures and free-standing sculptures of paint, reminiscent of his 2-D objects.

TED KINCAID FRONT ROW in D MAGAZINE

D Magazine Front Row visits Ted Kincaid's studio to preview recent work:
"Kincaid's site shows images from a few new series of work comprised of digitally fabricated moon-scapes, mountain ranges, sea vistas, and other other-worldly sights that seem to derive their inspiration from early photographic works . . ." ~Peter Simek

Ted Kincaid continues his visual trickery in photography - his new work fabricates painstakingly built images of mountain ranges, ocean fronts, and the moon using no actual photographic material. In one of the new series, "A Hundred Moons," what appear to be representations of the moon's surface are constructed from images of Kincaid's concrete studio floor.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION: SMALL WORKS




Small Works: Art + Object -a small sculpture invitational group exhibition, featuring strange and fantastic small art objects from a selection of 15 stellar artists. The exhibition runs November 20 - December 23, 2010, with an opening reception: Saturday, November 20, 6-8pm.



This assembly of sculpture debunks the trend that “bigger is better,” and by working within a small format, these artists have created a mess of random creatures and fascinating objects that demonstrate the power of big ideas imagined in scaled-down and accessible forms.

NEW WORK BY ARCHIE SCOTT GOBBER

I Draw Conclusions, 2008, gouache on board, framed, 16 x 19 in.

Opening November 12, 2010 at Dolphin Gallery, Archie Scott Gobber continues his satirical word play, painting with a graphic, billboard display aesthetic and bold visual languange. In his new work, Gobber captures a subtle, nuanced blend of political commentary and commercial advertising, displaying surprisingly colorful and often searing catch-phrases.

ORR & KRACHEY on HUFFINGTON POST

NEO-MINIMALISM @ MARTY WALKER GALLERY AMONG "THIS WEEK'S TOP EXHIBITIONS"


"Stripped: Neo-Minimal Strategies in Contemporary Art assembles an array of talent and diverse media that handily evinces new terrain, even if it's all rather cerebral. This is art not 'of' things but 'about' them, a Fantasyland for thinking people. Two pieces are especially worthy of attention. One is Four Corners by Anna Krachey... a luridly brilliant abstract photograph... the second is Tom Orr's Flow... elegant and eloquent sculpture..." Patricia Mora

JAY SHINN FEATURED REVIEWS

The Houston Chronicle reviews Refuge, Jay Shinn's solo exhibition at Barbara Davis Gallery in Houston:
"The work's real power lies in the way it transforms the gallery into a serene, chapellike setting. The exhibition's title, Refuge, hints at a spiritual impulse behind the work, as does the interdependency between the objects and their setting, neither of which is complete without the other.

It all adds up to a less-is-more vision that draws on the legacy of minimalism but ultimately feels more generous than austere. But you need to experience the work in person to glean its impact." ~Douglas Britt

And in The Houston Press, "This kind of artful, elegantly restrained work is rare and welcome" writes Kelly Klaasmeyer, editor of Glasstire.com

JAY SHINN NEW WORK IN HOUSTON

Jay Shinn, Shattered X, 2010, light projection and paint on wall

Showing for the first time in Houston, artist Jay Shinn debuts his new work, Refuge, currently on exhibit at the Barbara Davis Gallery. The exhibition of steel sculpture, projected light, and framed works contemplate the ideas of reality and illusion through light and line, as seen in the image above.

Statement from the artist:
"Altering the light and surroundings provides for several images from one form. Through all of this, no one image is final. A semifinal stage is where my time with the work ends. The work continues its process." – Jay Shinn
Statement from the reviewers:
"Keep Shinn on your radar: His projected beams of light are redolent of early James Turrell, while his eloquent steel rods recall the precise attitude of late Marfa master Donald Judd. The resulting shadows are all about the future — moving beyond mere sculpture to evoke architecture." - Catherine Anspon, Paper City (click for full article)
Preview images online here or contact Marty Walker Gallery for more information.

Exhibition on view through August 21, 2010 at Barabara Davis Gallery, Houston, Texas

RECOMMENDED: POST-NOW


EXHIBITION EXTENDED ONE WEEK!!! HURRY IN NOW!

People are talking about the futuristic renderings now on exhibit in POST-NOW. Anna Krachey, Buster Graybill, and Jesse Morgan Barnett's photographs, sculpture and videos illustrate their version of the quesion:

How would the world appear in the absence of humans?



Visual Art Source
claims POST-NOW is a must-see exhibition for all ages and walks of life, found on its list of RECOMMENDATIONS:

If Buster Graybill's black and white stills and video depict wildlife in the form of feral pigs and long-horned rams, then Jesse Morgan Barnett's and Anna Krachey's pictures show traces of the destructive wild life of people.



With the theoretically suggestive title of "Post-Now," this is a tight exhibition that brings home what it promises in a small dose. It is a pithy exposé of work by young artists providing glimpses into a would-be world left behind, yes, by fanatical Christians as well as by a vast array of technology whores, everyone from hot-rodding highway speed demons to lovers of Euro-trash disco. - Charissa Terranova

ALEXANDRA GRANT EXHIBITIONS NY & LA

In addition to the 2010 California Biennial, Alexandra Grant to participate in two exhibitions:


Body (9), 2009, after Michael Joyce's "symmetry," oil on canvas


CURRENTLY ON VIEW:

Four Projects: Doug Argue, Bill Fontana, Alexandra Grant, and Les Rogers
at Haunch of Venison
, New York
July 7 - August 28, 2010



Invited to exhibit at Haunch of Venison, L.A. based Alexandra Grant will be exhibiting a series titled Yo Soy Lo Que Veo, from her project Bodies, based on the book by Jorge Volpi, Mexican novelist. Using text and collaborating with poet Michael Joyce, Grant confronts symbolic and formal uses of text to construct her installations, where as she states "Arches become legs, slivers of moons, rainbows that support the words - which laid out symmetrically resemble organs or eyes." By densely layering shapes and letters, Grant questions the awareness of language as a construct toward meaning, often playing with logic to confuse phrases and the resulting associations.

TED KINCAID PHOTOGRAPHY @ LAX


If flying in or out of LAX (Los Angeles' Airport) May 31-August 31, 2010 -you will have the opportunity to see an installation of Ted Kincaid's newest 'Cloud' suite of photographs, as part of 'Altimetry', a group exhibition currently on display organized by the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and curated by Mark Steven Greenfield, Director of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery.

Greenfield states about the exhibition:
"As adults, the sky may have taken on the role of a private repository for our daydreams or other casual musings. The artists in 'Altimetry' have developed a special relationship with atmospheres and see that which they envelop as virtually inconsequential. In the context of air travel, it is my hope that their interpretations might challenge us to pause long enough to appreciate where we've been, or perhaps more importantly, where we are going."

MATTHEW PORTER @ ICP



Perspectives 2010 launches a new annual exhibition at the International Center for Photography in New York that focuses on significant works by emerging contemporary photographic artists. Artists in this year's inaugural exhibition include Carol Bove, Lena Herzog, Matthew Porter, Ed Templeton, and Hong-An Truong. The exhibition will show how these artists approach new ideas and digital technology in photography and its implications on social, historical, political, and philosophical content.

From the press release: "In his dramatic, almost cinematic photographs, Matthew Porter establishes an unsettling relationship between history and imagination. His sun-drenched muscle cars excerpted from 1970s television fly just too high over their city streets, evoking youthful masculine fantasies. Capitalizing on the inherent narrative implied in any juxtaposition of images, Porter has moved toward increasingly improbable installations of unrelated photographs, such as cowboys in Western landscapes alongside invented images of Nazi-era dirigibles."

Organized by Brian Wallis, ICP Deputy Director for Exhibitions & Chief Curator, Perspectives 2010 runs May 21 - September 9, 2010.

ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE: WILLIAM LAMSON AND JAY SHINN

Marty Walker Gallery artists William Lamson and Jay Shinn will be traveling this summer to participate in artist residencies to develop current projects - Lamson to Utah to continue exploring interactions with the environment and Shinn to Berlin to explore spatial relationships of geometric designs.

WILLIAM LAMSON

WILLIAM LAMSON

Brooklyn-based William Lamson will be participating in the Wendover Residency with the Center for Creative Land Use Interpretation in Wendover, Utah. Established in 1997, the program has included prominent and international artists, researchers, and land use enthusiasts to develop engaging, innovative, and compelling interactions with Utah's regional geography, including the Great Salt Lake, desert and salt flats, to reveal new perspectives about the built environment.




Dallas-based Jay Shinn is among the artists selected for the Takt Kunstprojecktraum residency program this summer in Berlin, Germany. Started in 2003 and autonomously run, the residency program intends to provide support to artists and foster creative minds. Having access to Berlin and an international community of artists, the residency will allow Shinn to develop his current investigation of two- and three-dimensional spatial relationships to create new geometric structures and prints.

WAYNE WHITE CREATES NEW PUPPET




Wayne White was invited this week by friend and art instructor Mike Quinn of The Webb School in Bell Buckle, Tennessee to build a 30-foot puppet resembling the school's founder W. R. "Sawney" Webb as a part of the school's Art Week and 14oth year anniversary. Assisted by students and using cardboard, foam core, bamboo, paint and wire, White constructed a 40-pound puppet head, clothed with a jacket made of 12 hot-glued t-shirts and paints made of rainbow satin. Reminiscent of White's automated George Jones head recently exhibited at Rice University, this puppet was created in two and a half days and was operated by students in a final celebration parade.
