sarah westgate VyletStar acrylic on canvas 321x400 Sarah Westgate, Bella Bones

Sarah Westgate’s works are those of both mother and artist. Her predominant mother and woman figures speak to her affinity for both nature and the body in relation to both mothering and being a woman. Her gorgeous “VyletStar*” is both soft and powerful, with the figure a force within herself while remaining connected to her surroundings, what I can only assume is her connectedness to nature. “Repose” speaks to me in much the same way; woman-fairy and nature, all connected but individual selves as well.

Japanese paper artist Yuko Takada Keller’s work is very much reflective of nature and the natural world. There is a prevalent use of blue and a waterlike quality to her pieces (a flowing, stirring spectrum of blue and white.) I think my favourite piece is “Life of the Blue”; its reflection on the wall is not only fascinating but it makes me think of a ball of birds twittering and flittering around one another.

Wail AO2 265x400 Michael Shapcott will teach you how to be awesomeMichael Shapcott is a 28-year-old painter from Connecticut whose palettes and portraits are inspired by music and different cultures. His gallery features several portfolios (I like onawa and blue truth the best) and his work is featured in exhibitions on both the east and west coasts. He currently has no scheduled exhibitions (his “The Beginning of the End” in San Fransisco ended last week), but subscribing to his RSS Feed is easy and a good way to hear about any upcoming shows. Several original pieces are currently for sale. [ Continue Reading ]

heike weber black out 3 533x400 Heike Weber

Heike Weber installations are imaginative to say the least. To be able to take a permanent marker to a floor and make something as very intricate as “Utopia” or “Dorotheum” is extraordinary. The paperworks are different from art on paper that I’ve seen, with interwoven shapes much likes those in the floor installations and cutout pieces that I’m sure have more meaning behind them than I’m picking up on. Moving on.

poster girl front page 1261161656 281x400 Goodbye Innocence, Hello Latex

Jasper Goodall’s solo gallery show Poster Girl is a commentary on the fine line between fetishism, fantasy and reality, expressed through shiny latex, dripping goo and acrylic body-masking cutouts.  The titles of his prints — Bad Bambi, Pink Polish, Crude Oil, Medusa, Tigress and Evil Mickey — entice our curiosity and give us an inkling of what is about to come.
