We had the pleasure of attending Haroshi’s second solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery.

Photos after the jump...

Among the many shows that opened this weekend in Culver City, Bernard Piffaretti's paintings stuck with us. The playfully bright and energetic abstractions abide by a basic bisected compositional structure, with respective variations in each canvas. The two reflected halves of each frame are comprised of mirroring forms, yet they are not perfectly so.

We had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of Dave Kinsey at the Joshua Liner Gallery. Everything at Once, encompass a vast collection of over thirty powerful and audacious paintings and works on paper. Dave’s images have a strong voice that explores a multilayered condensed chaos where its elements struggle to survive. He creates an interesting tension between textures and organic features, where intricate geometry assembles a beautiful representation of an insane world.

One of our favorite contemporary artists, Vhils, just opened a new exhibition, Devoid, at Lazarides' Rathbone space in London. The work focuses on the "individual in relation to the overpowering force of urban environments. Working with the city as the prime material, Vhils has used what the urban environment offers in its most derelict spaces as both a location and as a source for materials from wood scraps to rusty metal, discarded billboards and other debris produced by its inhabitants."
