Pedro Matos and the Ivory & Black Gallery in London are getting set for a strong group exhibition this June 15, with Juxtapoz stalwarts Andrew Schoultz, Cleon Peterson, James Jean, Ryan Travis Christian, and
Richard Colman making up the Gin & Juice show. Good title, we think.
The first group exhibition at Ivory & Black and the first time all of these artists are brought together in London, this marks an exciting time for the contemporary art scene. “Gin & Juice” celebrates the start of summer with fresh works from this troupe of young artists. In a visual playground, the vibrancy of these works questions the perception of the world around us. Ranging from the macabre to the playful and bright, the underlying humor in their works is a glimpse into the Californian subcultures they hail from. Steeped in dreamlike yet dark imagery, the work displays a sense of idealistic naivety but also deals with issues of sexuality, violence and disorder.
