James Jean's OVM Strata Animation

by Suzanne on September 23rd, 2011


OVM Strata by James Jean, graphite and digital - click for full version

Because this study for O\\\////M is so very very pretty, because I haven't featured any James Jean art here in a while and because this is my damn blog, let's just pretend this is Tumblr and I can just post ONE image sans much text cause I'm deep like that.

Make sure to check out the much more glorious, original version here since I had to drop a few frames and resize for hosting reasons.

Tous Cannibales at Maison Rouge, Paris

by Suzanne on March 29th, 2011


Girls Don't Cry by Makoto Aida, 2004 - click to enlarge

With the oeuvre featured in the Claude Lévi-Strauss inspired Tous Cannibales show at the Maison Rouge in Paris being incredibly stellar, it actually gave me a hard time selecting the image material for this little feature until I realised that generally speaking, the more Japanese sounding the artist, the better the artwork and as you can see, it's now a fact. Q.E.D. No, not really. But still.

What I find slightly bewildering if not downright outrageous is the fact that this show has been going on for way over a month already but has gotten almost no coverage. It's particularly bizarre considering that the grandiose Chiharu Shiota is currently exhibiting at the Maison Rouge as well.

Artists represented in the Tous Cannibales show include:

Makoto Aida, Gilles Barbier, Michaël Borremans, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Will Cotton, Wim Delvoye, Marcel Dzama, James Ensor, Francisco de Goya, J. J. Grandville, Pieter Hugo, Melissa Ichiuji, Oda Jaune (a great new discovery for me!), Fernand Khnopff, Théo Mercier, Félicien Rops, Bettina Rheims, Toshio Saeki, Cindy Sherman, Joel-Peter Witkin, and lots lots lots more.


School Girl by Melissa Ichiuji - click to enlarge

Jeanette Zwingenberger has done an absolutely outstanding and very brave job at curating and I can only hope that this turns into a traveling exhibition for the entire world to see.

Chapeau Maison Rouge, chapeau Jeanette Zwingenberger, chapeau all the artists involved. Details below. Oh, and watch the video which I'm totally hotlinking from their page. Shhhhh!

On show: Feb 12 - May 15, 2011

Address: La Maison Rouge, 10 Boulevard de la Bastille, 75012 Paris, France, tel: +33(0) 1 40 01 08 81 | Map

Gallery hours: Wed - Sun: 11 AM - 7 PM, Thu: 11 AM - 9 PM

Admission: €7

So here it finally is, the updated, ethnically cleansed, RSS synched 2010 list of the blogs I like, support, endorse, follow. You can also find it in the permanent blogroll in the sidebar.

If you're outraged you're not on it or a blog you love is not listed, or, au contraire, are shocked that your name appears amongst all this filth, submit your link for consideration here.

Merry Fuckmas, my monkeys!

Ray Caesar et al. at Jonathan LeVine's Anniversary Show

by Suzanne on March 17th, 2010


Arabesque by Ray Caesar, 2009

March seems to be the month for anniversary shows.

In Berlin, Strychnin just celebrated the 7 Year Itch, in Santa Monica, Hi-Fructose Magazine is currently holding celebrations for its 5th birthday (more later) and in New York, Jonathan LeVine who started out in Philly with Tin Man Alley, celebrates 5 years of hard slave work for the lowbrow / pop-surrealist / neo-fantastic / eye-candy / super-flat / christ-i-don't-know-what-to-call-it-anymore art.

The line-up is impressive and eclectic, to say the least. From urban art luminaries such as Blek Le Rat, Shepard Fairey, Calma and Invader over to sculpture and assemblage art represented by Adam Wallacavage and AJ Fosik on to the "classics" of christ-i-don't-know-what-to-call-it-anymore art like Ray Caesar, Ron English, Xiaoqing Ding, Scott Musgrove, Dave Cooper, Gary Baseman, Esao Andrews, Isabel Samaras, James Jean and further on to the phantasmagoric horrorscapes of Chris Mars and the subculture photo-realism of Dan Witz.

So yes, there's something for everyone!

... and hopefully, CAEK! (^_^)


Returns of the Day by Ray Caesar, 2009

On show: February 27 - March 27, 2010

Address: Jonathan LeVine Gallery, 529 West 20th Street, 9th Floor, New York, NY 10011, USA, tel: 212-243-3822 | Map

Gallery hours: Tue - Sat: 11 AM - 6 PM

Featured artists (selection): Adam Wallacavage, AJ Fosik, Andrew Brandou, Andy Kehoe, Chris Mars, Dan Witz, Dave Cooper, Eric White, Erik Mark Sandberg, Esao Andrews, Gary Baseman, Isabel Samaras, James Jean, Miss Van, Ray Caesar, Ron English, Scott Musgrove, Stephan Doitschinoff (aka Calma), Xiaoqing Ding

... and in totally unrelated news, I'm relieved and happy to say that I finally found the perfect male homo sapiens sapiens: Voilà! Sexeh!

WurzelArt Gazette March 2010 - Grab A Sammich

by Suzanne on March 12th, 2010


Work in progress by Joao Ruas, 2010

Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes and please pardon the radio silence. Our Angelique Houtkamp show was insanely busy and Angelique is now back home in Amsterdam and I can't tell you how relieved I am that she didn't get squeezed to death. Even our glass domes and the baby skulls are still intact - which clearly defies logic if you've seen the crowds at the opening reception. Some originals and the baby skulls are still for sale, so keep your eyes glued to Nelly Duff - I will upload details soonish.

Anyhow, it's March; which means the spring awakening of the beaux arts. Lots and lots and lots to report about. But since I have absolutely no idea where to start, I decided to give you some sneak previews of what my favourite WurzelArtists® have been up to recently.

This is only a small selection, but as you can see, people have been as busy as bees on coke and 2010 is going to be an amazing year for the visual arts, methinks.

JOAO RUAS


Fables cover #94 by Joao Ruas, 2010 - click to enlarge

Joao has been up to A LOT and it's always fascinating to see all the diverse things he's directing his talents to besides his work for Fables.

JEREMY ENECIO


Skin Deep by Jeremy Enecio, watercolour and acrylic on paper, 2010 - click to enlarge

The maître of tentacles and albino amazons has recently impressingly widened his repertoire to zombies for Zombies in Love at Gallery Nucleus.


Jeremy Enecio’s contribution to 100 Heads for Haiti, 2010 - click to enlarge

Oh, and he's just finishing the piece above for the 100 Heads for Haiti fundraiser. Nice.

ADARA SANCHES ANGUIANO


Bruise and a study by Adara Sánchez Anguiano, 2009-2010 - click to enlarge

For those who hadn't noticed: Egon Schiele has been reincarnated in the shell of Adara Sánchez Anguiano and given a box of happy coloured crayons.

ERIC FORTUNE


Further (in progress) by Eric Fortune, oil on canvas, 2010 - click to enlarge

Eric keeps on bringing the chiaroscuro to his futuristic faces. Further will be on show at CoproGallery from this weekend onwards.

TIFFANY BOZIC


The Raft by Tiffany Bozic, 2009-2010 - click to enlarge

Tiffany's Raft print is finally available through Joshua Liner Gallery.

JAMES JEAN


Dive (detail) by James Jean, 2010 - click to enlarge

James Jean's Dive has been given the posh Pressure Printing treatment.

CHRIS CONN ASKEW


Pull the Blinds by Christopher Conn Askew - click to enlarge

If, however, you're on a much smaller budget, get your hands on one of Chris Conn Askew's gorgeous new open edition prints.

MISS VAN


Poupées by Miss Van - click to enlarge

Meanwhile, does it seem like someone's slowly running out of ideas?! Miss Van releases an overpriced giclee of her 5-year-old Poupées. Hmm...

MARINA BYCHKOVA


Cixi (in progress) by Marina Bychkova, 2010 - click to enlarge

Marina, au contraire, has been tirelessly working her poor little paws off on one of her newest creations, Cixi. Here seen in progress.

JULIEN MARTINEZ


Véruka Vampirica (Blythe custom) by Julien Martinez, 2010 - click to enlarge

In other doll news, Julien Martinez has spookified yet another unsuspecting Blythe doll. Say hello to Véruka Vampirica.

ISABELLE ROYET-JOURNOUD


Wither by Isabelle Royet-Journoud, 2010 - click to enlarge

... and finally, Mme Isabelle Royet-Journoud looks a bit like a customised undead Blythe doll herself in this masterpiece of a self-portrait.

While here at Wurzeltod HQ, I've been mainly standing annoyingly in front of yet even more great art...
