Tom Friedman – Monsters and Stuff Exhibition

The title of Tom Friedman’s latest exhibition is so perfect, Monsters and Stuff. Without even seeing one piece of artwork you want to see it right? We did. Monsters and Stuff is a collection of landscape sculptures, small drawings and monster-size paper collages. These materials create things like Monster Fly depicting a man being chased by a fly twice his size. The exhibition is up at Gagosian Gallery till the 25th of July. If you can make it to London, you’ll probably end up at King’s Cross some point during your stay, the gallery is right near by, check it out.

Madeline Valentine creates the most haunting illustrations. What makes the Brooklyn artist’s work so amazing is the juxtaposition of her soft, dreamlike aesthetic with the thoroughly intense subject matter that she employs—a contrast that could easily come off as contrived if not executed so beautifully.

Michael Sieben and Cody Hudson Exhibitions at FIFTY24SF

The highly anticipated shows of Michael Sieben and Cody Hudson entitled Heroes for Ghosts andThe highly Save My Life respectively opened last night at Upper Playground’s FIFTY24SF Gallery, fulfilling all expectations created around these two prolific artists.

“Sieben explores the compromises we make when transitioning from childhood into adulthood in Heroes for Ghosts. In his signature technique, a blend of children’s book illustration and skateboarding graphic design, Sieben created a series of parables that are familiar and unsettling at the same time.

Hudson’s work centers on the theme of the human condition, exploring the concepts of both euphoria and impending doom. Save My Life highlights new paintings on wood panels, framed drawings, and unique sculptural installations that Hudson created utilizing materials collected in San Francisco in the days preceding yesterday’s opening.”
Get over to Juxtapoz for the whole story.
