Doe-eyed girls in pink dresses, animated deserts, bubbly cartoon characters—at first blush these qualities seem to define the work contained in EdgyCute. But a closer look reveals the inevitable dark underbelly of the sugar sweetness: the dead rat on a plate, lurking skeletons, the crying birdhouse

Minneapolis based Greg Gossel creates pulsating, visually arresting collages that at times look like someone gathered up all of the American pop culture characters from the 50s and 60s, put them in a blender, and layered them onto canvas.

The art fair SCOPE NY is fast approaching, and with it comes the hectic process of shipping artwork, setting it up, and taking care of all those last minute details that always seem to crop up. While right in the midst of this whirlwind process, our friends at The Shooting Gallery sent us over some in-progress shots of them setting up today for the fair in New York. “We are in New York and freezing our asses off!” they write. “It snowed last night, and though very beautiful, it got old fast.” You know what doesn’t get old fast? Great artwork. And when you’re exhibiting pieces by the likes of Ron English, Greg Gossel, and Erik Foss, you know you have a stellar lineup. See more shots of the set-up debauchery right this way…

Michael Deeb Recently took at trip over to London to check out the Red Dot Art Fair and had a funny (albeit frustrating) time getting a hold of a Conor Harrington (Juxtapoz #93) art piece. After he saw a truck sporting Conor’s striking imagery pass by him, Deeb knew he had to own an original Conor Harrington, he just didn’t think it would be quite so challenging.
