Fredericks & Freiser is presenting a exhibition of new paintings by Keegan McHargue. In Topical, McHargue returns to the human figure, albeit broadly shaped, satirical versions. Though their expressions and gestures are generalized, McHargue defines them in surprisingly specific ways. A woman’s lower torso is a single grotesque foot. A butterfly with human legs drifts in outer space. An artist paints the landscape wearing a Colonial hairdo sporting the body of a Centaur.

This show came down this past weekend, but Larmar Peterson is making some brilliant paintings. As Fredericks & Freiser note on the show, "Peterson dissects the American dream as he comments on domesticity, masculinity, representations of blackness, and class anxieties. Having shown for more than a decade, Peterson is now exploring new medium as he increases the scale of his works and moves from acrylic to oil. His evolving practice mimics the narrative of his pieces as he captures movement and transformation, change and balance..."

Armory Week can be overwhelming, and the amount of fairs that surround the Armory Show can leave you both inspired and exhausted. Juxtapoz trucked about 6 fairs this past week in NYC, and when it was all said and done, a few things stood out, and one at the Armory Show was the fantastic oil paintings of Jocelyn Robbie in the Fredericks & Freiser booth. Beautiful stuff.

Per the Fredericks and Freiser website, who just finished showing a body of work from the awesomely twisted and salacious mind of Steve Gianakos. "Steve Gianakos has been playing vulgarity and offensive humor against sophistication in his paintings and drawings for over 30 years. Using mostly old, non-specific cartoon graphics, rendered through a mechanical process, Gianakos portrays the human condition as an absurd interplay of sexuality and psychological fragmentation. . . "

We wrote last year that we felt Matthew Palladino was one of the more exciting and emerging artists to come out of San Francisco, and the artist will be exhibiting at New York City's Fredericks & Freiser Gallery 2 starting this Thursday, May 5, 2011.
