In L.A.: Anthony Lister @ New Image ArtJuxtapoz // Friday, 24 Feb 2012
Last night we stopped by the opening reception for Australian artist Anthony Lister’s solo exhibition at New Image Art in Los Angeles. This particular exhibition featured a montage of figurative renderings with special focus on the central theme of the beautiful and sometimes twisted form of the dancing ballerina.
New Image Art is pleased to present a new solo exhibition by returning artist Anthony Lister. Lister’s work takes influence from street art, expressionism, and pop art. Taking inspiration from his immediate surroundings he paints the parodies of modern life. His distinctive style is a visible tension between figuration and abstraction executed with bold confidence.
For his new exhibition Lister has created a montage of figurative renderings with special focus on the central theme of the beautiful and sometimes twisted form of the dancing ballerina. Along with a special print release and new series of sculptures, this new body of work promises to wow the viewer in its technical skill and refinement derived from sketching a live model. The opening reception will also feature a live dance performance as well as a hanging installation.
Following are a few images from the opening reception.
