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.

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

American painter, illustrator and sculptor Richard Artschwager passed away on February 9th at the age of 89. I recently visited the Whitney Museum here in Manhattan and had the chance to see a retrospective of Artschwager’s work, which surprised me with its diversity and freshness.
