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."

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.

Each piece in the show encompasses the commonalities of the rough lifestyles that are faced on a day-to-day-bases in inner/urban cities. Photos and more after the jump...

Cleon Peterson, who we have been huge fans of for years (and recently contributed a surfboard to our UNIV x Chandran Gallery x Juxtapoz fundraiser for Waves For Water), just opened a fantastic show at New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles a few weekends back. We checked it out, and through the throngs of friends and followers, enjoyed the packed house.

A few weekends back, we stopped by New Image Art to check out Richard Colman’s latest solo exhibition “Gone Tomorrow.” As always, Colman's work was a beautiful collection that addresses some of the darker subject matter of life, but done so with a brightness and abstraction that always grows and is perfected with each body of work. Photos and more after the jump..

This past weekend we stopped by New Image Art for the opening of Chad Muska’s first solo show. “Chad Muska comes from a long tradition of professional skateboard artists (Mark Gonzales, Ed Templeton, Chris Johanson, Natas Kaupas, and Neil Blender, among others) who have devoted their lives, both on and off the board, to a journey of creativity and discovery. The title of Chad’s first show, “Transitions,” is a word that not only stems from the curved surfaces skateboarders ride on in pools, parks, and ramps, but it’s also a reference to the skateboard lifestyle which is defined by movement from place to place, and from one state of mind to the next. Photos and more after the jump…

Last weekend saw the Los Angeles return of Mexico City-based Saner with the exhibition Catharsis at New Image Art Gallery. Curated by Medvin Sobio of 33third Los Angeles/Mid-City Arts, Catharsis represents the final act in a cycle of solo exhibitions Saner has been developing, where each one has looked to generate an emotional change over the spectator, guiding the viewer towards a path of rebirth, freedom & purification.

This isn't the first time we have talked about the work of Suzannah Sinclair, and it won't be the last. With memories of classic 1970's erotica, done in watercolors and pencil, the work of the Maine-based fine artist feels nostalgic to a more subtle era of sexuality and nude work. No props, just beautiful subjects with classic rendering chops.
