A coinciding show we have been looking forward to ever since we interviewed Australian artist Ashley Wood in our November 2011 issue: Wood and February 2012 cover artist, Jeremy Geddes, are set to open two solo shows at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this Saturday, October 20. Geddes' Exhale and Wood's Machine Sabbath both have the Australian artists showing new works with a high anticipation throughout the art world.
Here is the lowdown on Geddes' Exhale:
"exhale is a series of 17 paintings by Jeremy Geddes, rendered in meticulous detail, an arduous process that combines scrupulous observation, fine brushwork and delicate layers of glaze.
"Many of the works in the exhibition depict figures suspended in desolate urban landscapes or fractured environments that are in the process of falling apart. These complex works are contrasted by a series of smaller works that feature a single subject isolated in a solid black plane.
"Also, on Saturday 20th October there will be a print of Pale Memory available at the gallery from 1pm. The edition is limited to 100 and is one per person."
And a little look at a piece from Ashley Wood... not in the show, just a good piece...
