During a particularly successful Street Art Safari over on 10th Avenue in the Chelsea Gallery District, I spotted this wheat paste of an Insulin Vial with a Shark on it near 22nd Street. This piece is part of a series by a diabetic artist/photographer known as Appleton who aims to increase Diabetes Awareness through his art.

CUE Art Foundation is currently hosting Dose, an exhibition of paintings by Beverly Fishman, curated by Soundsuits artist Nick Cave. The show is comprised of a series of luminescent, geometric forms that resemble the shapes of common pharmaceuticals. Straddling the line between sculpture and post-painterly abstraction, Fishman’s optically intense work functions as an avenue for social critique, probing the pharmaceutical industry’s aesthetic decisions and branding strategies.

Do you like art and, also, drugs? I sure do. Generation X by NY-based artist Edie Nadelhaft is comprised of 9 individual, over-sized glass capsule sculptures — each filled with colorful plastic balls and emblazoned with familiar Social Media acronyms and emoticons — which are part of the artist’s Better Living Thru Chemistry series. You can see more of Nadelhaft’s work from that series at This Link!

Artist Lindsey de Ovies worked over the course of eleven years sculpting the works that make up Food For Thought, which opened last night at Mallick Williams & Co Gallery. Both absurdly humorous and subtly disturbing, de Ovies sculptures of anthropomorphic raw chickens, nail-studded Birthday cakes and oversized pharmaceuticals delicately displayed on cake trays represent the artist’s turmoil with regard to various dysfunctional family relationships. The fact that many of the most stressful family gatherings take place around the holiday banquet table is no accident. And being that we’re already less than a week away from the official holiday season kick off here in the states, it’s surely the perfect time to check out this exhibit!
Food For Thought by Lindsey de Ovies will be on Exhibit Through January 18th 2012, at Mallick Williams & Co. Gallery, Located at 150 11th Avenue (between 21st and 22nd Streets), New York, New York 10011.
