Something we learned very quickly while visiting the Danish city of Copenhagen in early June is that people like to Ride Bikes there. Thirty-Six percent of the population commutes to work a bike, and they are just fucking everywhere, so you had better watch out! It is insane, and yet, not insane, because it saves gas and is better for you and the environment. I took this photo of nice Pink Bike while my sister and I took shelter from a thunder storm on our way to see some sites. Copenhagen is an awesome city and I would go back for another visit in a heartbeat.
Sergio Garcia’s tiny sculpture under a bell jar, cleverly entitled It’s Knot a Bike, was photographed at the Joseph Gross Gallery in the Chelsea Gallery District, where it was part of their Winter Group Show.
Here it is in closer detail. See more of his cool work at the link above!
One of our favorite Chelsea Gallery discoveries of 2015 is the Joseph Gross Gallery, where we got turned on to cool and creative artists like Sebastian Wahl and the ridiculously hot Joseph Grazi, among others.
Not to mention, but you can see I am about to, the ladies that work there are super nice and friendly — which we certainly know that is not the case with many galleries — and that makes visiting Joseph Gross a pleasure. Right now, they have a very eclectic Winter Group Show going on where you can see the artworks featured in this post, plus many more!
Look how beautiful this one is.
Francesco Lo Castro has a few stand-out pieces in the show. He works with acrylic, spray paint and layered epoxy resin on wood. These pieces have so many visual aspects to them and are quite captivating.
Sean Newport is a San Francisco based artist whose work varies from design to sculpture. He has two pieces in the group show that resemble origami, but are actually acrylic on hand-cut poplar wood.
I love the way his use of color recalls the effect of recessed lighting.
I love this tiny Pink Tricycle and the play on words in its title. Clever!
Anybody wanna shoot some hoops?
This painting by Danish graffiti artist Rune Christensen reminds me very much of Paul Insect, whose art I adore.
Joseph Gross Gallery’s Winter Group Show will be up through January 23rd, 2016 at 548 W 28th Street, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
