On last week’s ambitious Art Crawl, Geoffrey and I hit up David Nolan Gallery as our first stop of the evening and were extremely charmed by Recent Terrestrials, an exhibition of new work by Alexander Ross. Bringing together a series of large-scale paintings and a group of smaller drawings, the exhibition signifies a variety of recent formal and thematic innovations for the artist.
David Nolan Gallery is currently hosting Sculpture after Artschwager – an exhibition which examines the diverse legacy of American artist, Richard Artschwager, who passed away earlier this year at the age of eighty.
Geoffrey and I made pass through the show on our recent art crawl and I wanted to post a few of my favorite pieces from the exhibit.
Besides Artschwager, the show brings together ten artists including Justin Adian, Dan Colen / Nate Lowman, Martin Kippenberger, Sarah Lucas, Ciprian Muresan, Isabel Nolan, Blair Thurman, John Torreano and Gavin Turk. These are all artists whose work was highly influenced by Artschwager’s themes and formal innovations.
Detail from the piece, above.
I’m not sure who the artist of this piece above is, but the structure and color reminds of the young street artist, Aakash Nihalani.
Sculpture after Artschwager will be on Exhibit Through October 26th, 2013 at David Nolan Gallery, 527 West 29th Street, In the Chelsea Gallery District
