[Please excuse the very long blog absence - I am without a stable internet connection and now terribly behind schedule with posting but I'm planning to brief you about 25 important shows that are currently taking place ALL AROUND THE GLOBE in these next few days. Please be patient while I'm getting hammered in bar after bar in order to find some unprotected Wi-Fi networks. Arggh.]

I haven’t mentioned Colette Calascione on here in over 6 years now which has to do with a general lack of shows and then her website disappearing into the Abyss ov thee Deepnet.

At any rate, Colette has made up for it all by currently having a solo exhibition at Nancy Hoffman Gallery in New York showing works from the past six years.

Her works are as allegorical as ever – maybe now a bit more clear-cut and marblelike and the backdrops and backgrounds often even more dazzling in complementary colours and more complex in industrial detail.

Indeed, it almost feels like she has broken the time/space continuum and time travelled back to Christian Schad‘s studio together with Jared Joslin and Alex Gross to indulge in some decadent art deco japonism and probably to visit a cabaret or the Grand Guignol.

Good to see she’s back.

Her solo show will close tomorrow, April 21, so don’t miss it if you’re in New York. All details and links below.
