Lots of Todd James news on the site and in the Juxtapoz channels this week, more on that in a minute, but James will be part of a five person show, curated by Jessica Hodin, going up tonight, October 10 at the Bleecker Street Arts Club in NYC. Meet Your Maker will showcase new works by James, Joyce Pensato, Sue Williams, Devin Troy Strother, and Sylvia Jeffriess. We have images of James and Strother's work in the gallery above, and more images here.
The gallery writes, "The selected works combine an enthusiasm for pop culture with a sophisticated study of modern painting. The show highlights the graphic nature of the artists' styles and similar character-based subject matter. It is an exploration of their shared comic-book references and aesthetic achieved through the simultaneous use of a whimsical innocence thrown off by an injection of vulgarity."
