Tomasz Lsky 3 Homeless Gallery surface and surfaceI went along to the Homeless Gallery for their annual uncurated photography show and BLOW Photography Magazine’s 2nd Birthday a few weeks ago.  125 photographers displaying their work over 4 days in the massive D-light Studios in Dublin. The venue (two-storey stone warehouse built in the 1850’s) and the range of work on show was really impressive.  A few Photographers that stood out for me were Hugh Chaloner, Arther Maure, Andre Sanchesand Donhphoto, others that I couldn’t find any more info on were Ivan Rynn, Conor McMahon, David Mannion, Anna Kargal and Alva MacGowan.  Photos below are by Anna Pas,  Szymon Lazewski and Tomasz Lsky.  I’ll be announcing the winner of the BLOW photography magazine give away next week, you still have a chance to enter here.

Anne Lindberg - surface and surfaceRayon thread, Graphite and colored pencil line drawings and sculptures from Kansas City based Artist Anne Lindberg.  “My sculpture and drawings inhabit a non-verbal place resonant with such primal human conditions. Systemic and non-representational, these works are subtle, rhythmic, abstract, and immersive.”  Anne Lindberg will be having a solo exhibition at the Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago in September.

07 Conor Harrington Lazarides Gallery - surface and surfaceNew work from Cork born – London based Artist Conor Harrington for his solo exhibition ‘Dead Meat’ at Lazarides Gallery, London.  Full press release available here.

“Harrington’s choice of materials—oil on canvas paired with spray paint—highlights the establishment and its downfall, a consistent theme from his previous work. His scenes so carefully constructed and beautifully rendered, Harrington thinks nothing of brandishing a can of bitumen black spray paint and vandalizing his own careful creation. The dialogue between graffiti and traditional fine art, abstraction and realism form the backbone of his continuing output.”

Conor’s solo exhibition includes 8 large scale paintings and 24 small studies.  ‘Dead Meat’ runs until the 2nd of April 2012.  Watch the video below by Andrew Telling‘Black Herds of The Rain’ it is a film documenting Conor Harrington’s trip home to Ireland in the summer of 2011 to paint 3 walls. The journey and subsequent paintings are inspired by Austin Clarke’s poem The Lost Heifer.  Conor Harrington will be taking part in Offset in Dublin this weekend, he’ll be presenting his work on Sunday at 4pm.

Casey Weldon - Cella Gallery - Femme Fatale - surface and surface

Casey Weldon

Some really nice work in “Femme Fatale” exhibition at the Cella Gallery, Los Angeles running until March 17th.

“Gathers some of the most powerful contemporary artists whose inherent aesthetic is heavily influenced by the beauty of the female figure. The exhibition explores how individual perceptions of feminine allure can be expressed through each artist’s specific genre. Expect to be seduced, ensnared and dangerously dazzled as though in the crosshairs of a femme fatale herself.”

All work from the exhibition is available to view here on their tumblr.  Artists include: Aaron Nagel, Apricot Mantle, Anna Chung, Aunia Kahn, Casey Weldon, Cate Rangel, Charles Ketcham, Chris Peters, Christopher Umana, Cristina Paulos, Chrystal Chan, David Bray, Dave MacDowell, Delphia, Douglas Alvarez, Edith Lebeau, Gail Potocki, Jason Rudulph Pena, JAW Cooper, Jeff Ramirez, Jessica Ward, JoKa, Jose Carabes, Ken Garduno, Korin Faught, Kris Moore, L.Croskey, Lily Mae Martin, Linnea Strid, Morgan Slade, Nicole Bruckman, Nom Kinnear King, Paul Chatem, Sara Haase, Sarah Folkman, Stella Im Hultberg, Ted von Heiland and THH70.
