Installation View: NECKFACE "Drinking On The Job" @ New Image Art, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 26, 2014
This past weekend in LA at New Image Art, Neckface opened a brand new show entitled "Drinking on the Job." That said, the show had a few references to drinking, and the process of making the show came down to this: "Each piece is imagined and drafted in an impaired state, in the field, sometimes with little to no recollection of his sullied genius until the scrawled upon napkin is found the morning after." 

Sculptures and Paintings by Kim Kei

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Los Angeles-based artist Kim Kei begins her process by combining and altering everyday objects and natural debris.

Geoff McFetridge just completed a mural at the historic West LA Courthouse skate spot. The mural is part of a greater project that reopened and repaired the spot, with Nike SB, local government and skaters working together to have it back open to public. Juxtapoz' Sam Graham went and snapped some shots this weekend. Public art, public space, skating... perfect. We asked Geoff to talk about the project, about both the mural and the skate spot itself, and in his own words, this is what he told us.

If there is anything you plan on doing this weekend in Los Angeles, make sure going to the opening of Nasty Neckface's new show, "Drinking on the Job," at New Image Art Gallery on Friday, August 22nd, 2014. If you are going to kick off a Fall season with a new show, you might as well go Neckface, go dirty, go raunchy, go funny, go ironic, and literally go drinking. According to New Image, "Working days and nights, the artist adhered to a strict creative process shrouded in the lighthearted but gloomy atmosphere akin to bars and pubs." There you go.
