Andy Rementer "Meet Me Later" @ Mondo Cane

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 29, 2014
April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer will be returning to Mondo Cane in NYC with his third solo show of new and previously un-shown paintings and drawings on Thursday, May 1st. The "Meet Me Later" series transports us to seemingly familiar street corners, interiors and subway platforms populated by characters caught in frozen moments of furtive activity. The work has a timeless quality which seems to draw from influences as diverse as Léger, The Italian Renaissance and even the narrative economy of Raymond Carver. Ambigiuous narratives connect the work, while Rementer's use of bold colour, street signage, and textile pattern create further layers and stories of their own.

Day to Night

Photography // Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Photographer Stephen Wilkes has created a unique body of work that captures the bustle and vivaciousness of cities across the globe. In his images, Wilkes photographs each scene over the course of an entire day from early morning to night and then compiles these images to create photographs that capture each city’s full cycle of activity. The scenes usually include a section of full daytime exposure that seamlessly fades into a nighttime portion that includes longer exposures showing blurs of colored motion.

Italian artist Roberto Bernardi will be opening an exhibition of new hyper realistic paintings at Bernarducci Meisel Gallery in NYC on May 1st. Bernardi spends up to a month creating each painting, using traditional painting techniques of oil on canvas.
