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.

03 Lygia Pape Magnetized space serpentine surface and surfaceInteresting sculpture, drawings, paintings and video work from the late Brazilian Artist Lygia Pape (1927-2004).  I saw the Lygia Pape exhibition ‘Magnetized Space‘ at the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park London last Friday.  First time at the gallery unfortunately the Zumthor pavilion was long gone.

‘My concern is always invention. I always want to invent a new language that’s different for me and for others, too… I want to discover new things. Because, to me, art is a way of knowing the world… to see how the world is… of getting to know the world’. Lygia Pape

The exhibition was organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in collaboration with Projeto Lygia Pape and the Serpentine Gallery.

11 José Parlá - Surface and Surface

Calligraphic paintings and concrete sculptures from Cuban raised, Miami born, New York based Artist / historical transcriber / visual raconteur José Parlá.

“Parlá concentrates on the problems inherent in the change of context from the street to the galleries that few of the old school writers had successfully negotiated. A notable exception is, of course, SAMO, who later painted under his given name, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Parlá’s work takes off from and expands on these roots.”  Joan Waltemath, Brooklyn Rail

An interview with José Parlá and Ann Binlot from The New York Times is available here and another from The Block Magazine here.

“I’m interested in bringing the energy of the city inside the gallery,”  José Parlá

“fragments of old timber houses, driftwood and other Found wood creates Pearse collage full of geometric patterns, grids and color coding. The works are abstract but in the recycled material occurs stories about times and places that otherwise easily fall into oblivion.”

04 AJ Fosik - surfaceandsurfaceSome intricate & eccentric wood work from Portland based Artist AJ Fosik.

“Inspired by subversive cultural influences which shift complacency, he creates pieces that suspend comfort while at the same time offer recognizable symbols and images.”

He is currently exhibiting his work at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York until the 17th of November. Fecalface.com has a great interview they did with AJ back in 2009. Also included are some images from an exhibition at the David B Smith Gallery in Denver.

maurizio cattelan 04 surfaceandsurfaceRetrospective exhibition of controversial Italian born artist Maurizio Cattelan’s work at the Guggenheim, New York.  Famed for his disturbingly hyperrealistic sculptures, most notably that of Pope John Paul II killed off by a meteorite.

As the name alludes the exhibition contains ‘All’ Maurizio Cattelan’s work since 1989.

Hailed simultaneously as a provocateur, prankster, and tragic poet of our times, Maurizio Cattelan has created some of the most unforgettable images in recent contemporary art.

Reading between the Lines is part of ‘pit’, an artistic trajectory with works by  ten artists in the region of Borgloon-Heers, Holland. ‘Pit’ will be the first part of the exhibition project Z-OUT, an initiative in which Z33, the contemporary art museum of the city of Hasselt, presents art in public space.

On September 24th, Gijs Van Vaerenbergh revealed a construction in the rural landscape based on the design of the local church which consists of 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns, and is built on a fundament of armed concrete. Through the use of horizontal plates, the concept of the traditional church is transformed into a transparent object of art.
