Preview: “Fhloston Paradise” at Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Tomorrow, March 9, Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles will debut the three-person show "Fhloston Paradise" (an allusion to the cult classic sci-fi film The Fifth Element) featuring artwork by Mark Whalen (Kill Pixie), Jasper Knight and Julian Meagher. The three artists represent a spectrum between the figurative to the abstract, yet their works co-exist harmoniously. Meagher paints isolated figurative subjects that draw the viewer's complete attention to the emotive expressions of athletes or the minute details of different species of birds. Meanwhile, Whalen creates glossy, resin-coated paintings that draw us into an abstract, mathematical microcosm populated by tiny humanoids. Knight's paintings approach abstraction with a loose, graffiti-like style while still retaining a geometric order. Take a look at our preview of the show after the jump, photos courtesy of Theonepointeight.
