LES food...


Okay, this isn't a new sculpture and no, i'm not giving any food away at my openings, or have i gone corporate and sought out a sponsor.. but i feel suddenly like blogging..
I'm so excited to be in the new space in the Lower East Side (end of Freeman Alley at Rivington) and search out all the good food in the area. So far, I've had great taco's at the Corner Diner, almost as good tacos at nearby Mexican place (forgot the name)
but today i was blown away by a fantastic Vietnamese sandwich at SAIGON on Broome & Mott. and only FIVE bucks! Bread as fine comes only from Paris. okay, i'm exaggerating.. but, man oh man, it was amazing.

it looked kinda like this.

THURSDAY JULY 21st (6-9pm) : Fat Fingers at Mulherin Pollard


Daniel Davidson exhibits six new abstract paintings this month at Mulherin + Pollard. And a new direction: these new paintings are void of characters or caricature, no figures or fingers (despite the title), no hamburgers or fat men. There were beautiful abstract paintings underneath many of Daniels elaborate & dense works of the past, but in this exhibition, FAT FINGERS, they are center stage.

Bovasso! Bovasso! Bovasso!




BOVASSO! BOVASSO! BOVASSO!
new work ( and some not so new )
by Nina Bovasso

July 1- August 15, 2011
Ada Gallery
228 West Broad Street
Richmond, Va. 23220

Bovasso's acrylic and ink drawings feature densely constructed, intricately woven abstraction, rich in color and finely executed lines.

Now sprouting legs and feet appropriated from the human form, Disney and Breughel, these anthropomorphized, architectural shapes are transformed into a hybrid of humanness and mobile apparatuses. In this new work, Bovasso's quasi-cartoon, graphic style connects the handmade with the hand-held world of information overload. Through her vibrant images, Bovasso shows the power of the human hand and imagination, while playfully acknowledging the impact of the bit-stream world on our identities.

Bovasso's work can be found in the collections of: Collectie KPN, Netherlands; The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; JP Morgan/ Chase Bank, New York, NY; MoMA, New York, NY; Deutsche Bank, NY/DE; among others. Her work has also been reviewed in Art Forum, The New York Times, Art in America, and TImeOut NY
