With "Scatter My Ashes on Foreign Lands," Amir H. Fallah's largest solo museum exhibition is currently on display at MOCA Tucson. Exploring identity and the immigrant experience, his vibrant portraits of veiled subjects, botanical paintings examining classical Dutch work, and a new series of autobiographical pieces are included in the exhibition. Fallah was last featured on our site here.
With Leon Keer's recent output, the painter continues to craft illusionary gallery work, murals, and installations that play with depth and nostalgia. A recent piece for Thinkspace's anniversary show, titled "Addicted" (below), also saw the artist toying with lenticular painting. On his Instagram page, Keer has also been sharing his anamorphic rooms, in which he moves in and out of the scenes to show their actual planes.
In the past, Wayne White injected his anachronistic phrases into existing, vintage lithographs. In White's new show at Joshua Liner Gallery, titled "I DON'T KNOW," the artist reacted to the shortage of these types of backdrops by forging his own in this set of paintings. The show runs through Feb. 8 at the space.
Jessica Stoller's porcelain sculptures both examine art-historical notions of the material and how the female body has been depicted. Her current show at PPOW Gallery in New York City, titled “Spread,” offers new pieces from the artist. The show runs through Feb. 15 at the space.
BridgeSimply put, Dark Art Emporium says its new show is about "the Fantastic." With paintings from Iva Troj, Rachael Bridge, and Meagan "Magpie" Rodgers, "Angel Dust" takes a diverse approach to this concept—though all carry the dark surrealist undertones the Long Beach venue is known for offering. The show kicks off on Sept. 14 at the gallery.
