Alex Katz Naked Beauty

Erotica // Wednesday, January 18, 2012
The US-American painter Alex Katz will be showing a series of nudes covering the period from 1980s to the present day, juxtaposed with selected city views of New York at his current show at the Kestnergesellschaft.

Richard Phillips

Erotica // Tuesday, January 03, 2012
Richard Phillips is known for his large-scale glossy hyper-realistic paintings, recalling the pictorial style of magazines from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and reflecting traditions of popular image culture. His paintings represent close-up portraits, predominantly of women from fashion and soft porno magazines, but also persons from the fields of pop music and politics. He says "My Pictures involve a kind of wasted beauty-that's always been a thread in my work."

Francine Spiegel's Goregous Grotesque

Erotica // Wednesday, December 28, 2011
Francine Spiegel makes large portraits in acrylic of the monstrous feminine. Her soupy, sloppy women protrude from and are engulfed by pop slime piles. Rapper’s girlfriends, socialites, and pin-up girls are all thrown into the stew of mylar, goo, glitter, and chewing gum. Their glammy/gory juxtaposition, coupled with the analog and digital moments of her distortions, presents an interesting visual conundrum of seduction and repulsion to these primordial females.

Paintings by Feodor Voronov

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 02, 2011
At the base of Feodor Voronov's work is a constant search to reinvent the problem-solving process of painting. His work has developed overtime as a means to find more challenging and risky ways to solve the puzzle of a composition on canvas (or paper).

Paintings by Ahmed Alsoudani

Juxtapoz // Saturday, November 26, 2011
Ahmed Alsoudani's paintings are immersed in the surreal, compiling fractured images from fleshy masses with inorganic forms, yielding a psychologically unsettling image that borders on comparison with Picasso's Guernica as a response to the "psychological repercussions" of warfare.
