We are devout Raymond Pettibon fans. His combined use of mark making, text, and a signature comic-book style is the best of its kind. On view at Georg Kargl's BOX exhibition space in Vienna are some of Pettibon's earlier works from the 1980s. If we were in Vienna right now, we would be drooling over some of these drawings. For all you non Viennese readers, go on a vacation and check them out while they're still up.

This past weekend we stopped by Known Gallery to check out Aaron Rose’s Fire Sale. When Rose moved to Los Angeles from NYC in 2001, the Beautiful Losers curator left a "big black box of 1990?s memories" in storage space in Glendale. Now he is having a gallery style fire sale. Photos and more after the jump…

Think Raymond Pettibon and the first association might be the punk band Black Flag started by his brother for whom he created the “four bars’ logo. Or the characteristic comic-like drawings. Or his two hearts in No Title (Paint fills them) chosen by SFMoMA as the cover art for The Air We Breathe, the current show which, indeed, asks us to Think – about equality and marriage, both in the truest sense of each concept.

This should be an interesting film: Skin, where director Ryan Hope has made a stylistic production to examine tattoo art and culture as "high art." The film "tests the boundaries of art and the human body," and gathers interviews with Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Raymond Pettibon about to look at the evolving genre.
