Video Clip of The Week: GoldFish, “Talk to Me”

Few things fill me with a degree of ecstatic delight to rival that of finding an excellent animated clip for the weekly jam, because it brings us all closer to the gleeful vibe of the weekend-morning cartoons that many of us were addicted to as kids. Today, I invite you to enjoy a flight through space courtesy of the track “Talk to Me” from San Diego-by-way-of-South Africa electronic dance duo, GoldFish. Speaking about the track, This Song Is Sick offers that the group’s “unique style of house is apparent with a dance-driven approach making use of bouncing, deep basslines, jazzy and bright melodies with uplifting vocals while sax lines are thrown in perfectly.” “Talk to Me” is visualized by the familiar style of animator Mike Scott (Disney/ Nickoldeon/ Cartoon Brew).

“Talk to Me” can be found on the duo’s fifth studio album, Late Night People, which is out now via Armada Music. International tour dates for GoldFish are below. Enjoy their casino free spins!

Joshua Liner Christens New Gallery Space with Direct Address: An Inaugural Group Exhibition

Stephen Powers A Month of Somedays
Stephen Powers A Month of Somedays

One of our favorite Galleries in the Chelsea Arts District, Joshua Liner, has just moved from an upper floor at 540 West 28th Street to a 2,600-square-foot street level exhibition space that completely transforms the environmental aesthetic of the gallery. To celebrate the move, Joshua Liner is currently presenting Direct Address, an inaugural group exhibition featuring works in diverse media by longtime gallery figures as well as new additions to the program. Participants include the following artists:

Alfred Steiner, Clayton Brothers, Cleon Peterson, Dave Kinsey, David Ellis, Evan Hecox, Greg Lamarche, Ian Francis, Jean-Pierre Roy, Kris Kuksi, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, Richard Colman, Riusuke Fukahori, Shawn Barber, Stephen Powers, SWOON, Tiffany Bozic, Tomokazu Matsuyama and Tony Curanaj.

While I missed last week’s opening reception, I did drop by to see the show early last evening and was blown away not only by the gorgeous new space, but also by the fantastic artworks; some by artists I have come to know well through the Liner gallery, and other artists whose work I was seeing for the first time.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the show:

Riusuke Fukahori Rinne

What you see here is neither real fish nor real water, but a micro-layered acrylic painting by Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori, which is viewed as a solid object. Pretty cool!

David Ellis All That Glitters Kinetic sound and light installation
All That Glitters by David Ellis

This kinetic sculpture/chandelier by David Ellis is equipped with motors as well as recorded music, so that it plays various original instrumental pieces at random, accompanied by the tinkling or clinking of the bottles and other suspended pieces of the sculpture. Gallery assistant Lizzie told me that Ellis will have a full gallery show in September, so I will be looking forward to checking that out.

Stephen Powers Daily Metaltation
Daily Metaltations by Stephen Powers

We’ve seen a fun show by former-sign-painter-turned-graphic-artist Stephen Powers at Liner just this past summer and his work is colorful and full of dry humor.

Kris Kuksi Neo-Roman Opera House

Ah, Kris Kuksi: He is just the best. Check out a detail of this insane work below.

You could look at just one of Kuksi’s worlds within worlds sculptures for weeks and never see everything.

Jean-Pierre Roy The Long Shadow to Put to Use, Once Recognized
The Long Shadow to Put to Use, Once Recognized By Jean-Pierre Roy

The Joshua Liner show has one of Jean-Pierre Roy’s paintings of futuristic, urban dystopia. His work is always thought provoking.

Clayton Brothers Reality Waits for Natural Light Detail

The Clayton Brothers have contributed a dozen works to this show, which are mostly clustered in a row along the front of the gallery’s main desk. Here is a close up of two panels from this series, which is called Reality Waits for Natural Light. These paintings reminded me a bit of Brazilian street artists, Os Gemeos.

SWOON Thalassa (Pink Seahorse)

Street artist SWOON contributed this nice piece.

I’m not sure who the artist of this painting is, but I liked that I was able to guess the title just from observing the contents of the picture.

Direct Address: An Inaugural Group Exhibition will be on Exhibit Through April 20th, 2013 at Joshua Liner Gallery, Located at 540 West 28th Street. Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM.
