Preview teaser of Jonathan Levine Gallery's December shows with Shag and Jean LabourdetteJuxtapoz // Friday, 26 Nov 2010
We just received a few preview images from Jonathan LeVine Gallery's two NYC December exhibitions: Josh Agle (SHAG) and Jean Labourdette (Turf One). Jonathan LeVine has a major presence at Art Basel in Miami, and with two shows going in NYC right after, it is a busy month for the Gallery.
Josh Agle will be having his 3rd solo exhibition at Jonathan LeVine, with his show titled, Ambergris. This show will feature over a dozen original acrylic paintings on panel as well as three large-scale giclee editions on canvas. Agle renders his stylized subjects and their luxurious surroundings with details reminiscent of mid-century modern design—painting each figure and form with clean shapes and crisp, fluid line work in vividly saturated colors and sharply defined textural patterns.
And Turf One's The Rising features a portrait of the late Dennis Hopper (who the artist considers a source of creative inspiration) re-imagined in gold leaf as a patron saint of the arts. See the piece below.
More on both shows in the next few weeks.
