Four distinct artists- Andrew Brandou, The London Police, Redd Walitzki, and Richard J. Oliver– will show alongside each other next Saturday at CHG Circa. Simply titled “FOUR”, their collective show ranges in a variety of styles and themes that portray ethereal environments. Notably, this exhibit is Redd Walitzki’s (covered here) Los Angeles debut of her enchanting laser cut paintings. Her images seem to evaporate into their flowery borders, representing her subject’s own subconcious. Andrew Brandou also plays with a floral motif, the chrysanthemum, in his paintings of a cartoony world of friendly Buddahs and bunnies. His roots in animation shine through in his vibrant and graphic line work. The London Police compliment these with a new series of graphic paintings, while Richard J. Oliver offers perhaps the darkest images of sorrowful young girls playing out a tragic fairytale.

“FOUR” featuring new work by  Andrew Brandou, The London Police, Redd Walitzki, & Richard J. Oliver opens at CHG Circa, on February 14th, 2015.

On August 15th, New York welcomed a new gallery, Haven Gallery, with their inaugural exhibition inspired by the idea of safe havens. Their first group of artists have wide ranging styles, many sharing whimsical qualities: Matt Dangler, Kukula (HF Vol. 7), Kari-lise Alexander, Nicomi Nix Turner, Dan Quintana (HF Vol. 27), Shaun Berke, Tom Bagshaw, Naoto Hattori (HF Vol. 7), Zoe Byland, Brian Mashburn, Regan Rosburg, Aunia Kahn, Caitlin McCormack, Rose Freymuth-Frazier, Redd Walitzki, and Nom Kinnear King. Their subjects span still life, landscapes, and figurative works, suggesting that refuge can be found both in the physical as well as within oneself.

Whereas his past work brought viewers in close, like a whisper, Andy Kehoe's newest series of mixed-media paintings is more like a cry from a mountain top. Kehoe explores the broad terrain of the mystical forests we've visited before, opening a new chapter in the vignettes he has been weaving through his past solo shows in recent years. He creates depth by alternating layers of paint with resin, giving his paintings a shadow-box effect. His latest body of work — premiering this Thursday, June 5, at Roq La Rue in Seattle for his solo show "Inner Mystic" — marks a turning point in his aesthetic.

The London Police

When the first-ever END-to-END festival recently landed in Charlotte, N.C., it added nearly two-dozen murals to the 76-acre Camp North End, which began its existence as a Model T factory and is a now a burgeoning mixed-use site with industrial structures in-tact. Among the artists: The London Police (last featured on HiFructose.com here), Fabian Williams, James Moore (last featured here), Hnin Nie (last featured here), and several others.
Illustrious fantasies unravel in the "Dreamlands" group show, opening at Corey Helford Gallery's CHG Circa space on March 14. Guest curator Caro (who is also our Hi-Fructose staff blogger) brings her Japanese Pop Art-inspired aesthetic to the show; she works with many of the featured artists, like So Youn Lee and Hikari Shimoda, through her arts platform Sweet Streets. The exhibition features 35 artists, many of whom our readers will recognize, such as Naoto Hattori, Tom Bagshaw, Hannah Faith Yata, Lola, Kazuki Takamatsu (HF Vol. 33 cover artist), and many others. The artists in the show were invited to interpret their dreams, and the resulting work is soft, utopian, and surreal.
