From studio visits to behind-the-scenes peeks at exhibitions and installations, the Hi-Fructose Magazine YouTube channel offers a different way to see the art that appears in the print publication and on our blog. Below, we’ve included some of the highlights from the channel.
Dutch designer Iris van Herpen creates apparel that can appear both organic or frozen in movement, whether her fashion art emulates a splash of water or writhing, tentacle-like forms. Herpen’s versatility in shown in how her pieces seemed ripped out of varying eras.
Artist Bruno Novelli excels in both color and blending patterns, and in his “Night in the Tropics” series, the latter is highlighted. His Indian ink works were inspired by an experience of the artist in the Amazon. Bruno Novelli Novelli last appeared on HiFructose.com here.
Marion Peck moves into a new chapter of her practice as she unveils “StraVolti” at Dorothy Circus Gallery Rome on April 21. The show, collecting new works that explore psychological themes and modern art history, presents a series of distorted portraits rendered in oil. “StraVolti” runs through May 28.
The new work of Joseph Loughborough blends distorted figures and meditations on color, each providing its own mystery and eerie sensibility. The artist uses oil stick, pastel, and charcoal to create these works. In a new show at the gallery Anno Domini in San Jose, the artist shows a new collection of work that is both dynamic and haunting in execution. The artist was last featured on HiFructose.com here. The show, “Notches,” runs through April 14 at the gallery.
In a new show at Arthouse1 London, the artistic element of light is explored through a collection of artists who utilize the source in different ways. “The Sky’s Gone Out” features the work of Vasilis Avramidis, Gordon Cheung, Sean Dawson, Bella Easton, John Greenwood, Chris Hawtin, Rui Matsunaga, John Stark and Mimei Thompson. (The show was curated by Easton and Hawtin.)
