We spent yesterday afternoon helping to install a series of 8 pieces by David X. Levine we framed for Steven Zevitas Gallery for his booth at NADA NYC, which opens today. I highly recommend you check this out if you are in NYC for the fairs. Fantastic work by David, and challenging/exciting pieces to frame.
May 9–11 on Pier 36 at Basketball City located at 299 South Street on the East River.
Open now at Aviary Gallery in Jamaica Plain is this awesome show by Ryan Arthurs. Check it out!!
Degrees of Freedom is comprised of portraits of men, largely off-duty military servicemen, that have been colorfully silk screened, obscuring and highlighting the figures. Whereas earlier work used the natural world to explore themes of strength and toughness, Arthurs’ current work uses vintage military snapshots to explore bonds of friendship, playfulness and vulnerability. The work is part of a larger series called, R&R (Rest & Relaxation), that explores how men in the military spent their free time while not fighting on the front lines, the time away from their military obligations. Whether it’s a group of men hanging out, drinking, playing cards, paddling a canoe, jumping through the waves, Arthurs is interested in how recreation served as an escape from military service. He sees these images as a point of departure from reality into fantasy. The polygonal shapes that are silk screened over the photographs serve to call attention to the figure and the relationships between these men, highlighting the tension and desire, between subjects as well as with the viewer.
We’ve been working on lots of exhibitions lately!
