With my new canon 60d in hand, and my friend Yip in town and teaching some technical settings, I documented a few images of work that called my attention, yesterday 7/22/12, at Bodega, Marginal Utility and Vox Populi Gallery.
Bodega – Fükengrüven – Joshua Abelow, Phil Cote, Pia Howell, Orion Martin
June 9 – July 29, 2012
Phil Cote’s painting. The marks dash around the canvas like musical gestures reminiscent of Kandisky. They make me feel “I am a paint brush, these are my strokes”. They make for an interesting contrast with Pia’s reductive gestures on reflective surfaces of ambiguous symbols of perhaps bodies or perhaps movements of patterns and textures also reminiscent of musical structures. All fitting of the exhibition’s title.
Scott Kip at Marginal Utility
Two well written descriptions and insights to Kip’s Illuminated Structures:
Yip in the background with Illuminated Structures.
a happy accident or purposeful shadow of ephemera?
see the art blog’s review . Some similar work caught my attention, so thank you Art Blog as I hadn’t recorded the artists’ names.
Linda Lopez. I liked the painted shadow, the delicate lines of the ceramic and the shelf it rested on. It makes me ask a lot of questions about what they could have been and what they are in the gallery.
graphite but I don’t know who the artist is…
don’t fall in….
