Alex Pardee has been locked away in his home studio these last couple months furiously working on a brand new body of work debuting soon at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. Hi-Fructose Magazine was lucky enough to get a step by step look into his latest creation, “The Building”. Get an in-depth look at the process behind this piece, accompanied by Alex’s personal notes on the steps, here on Hi-Fructose.
Remember how last week we gave you a sneak peek into the new Zero Friends pop-up shop in San Francisco? Well, guess what, the shop’s now open for business and in addition to being stocked to the gills with all the Zero Friends merch, prints and original art your credit card can handle, the special festivities and events are now underway..
“Digested Rainbow” by Alex Pardee “Digested Rainbow” was the centerpiece to Pardee’s solo show “Letters from Digested Children.” Limited to just 50 prints this 17″x22″ giclee is signed and numbered, beautifully printed and is available exclusively through the Hi-Fructose store …
We’re pleased to announce the release of an exclusive giclee print by artist Alex Pardee! “Digested Rainbow” was the centerpiece to Pardee’s solo show “Letters from Digested Children.” Limited to just 50 prints this 17″x22″ giclee is signed and numbered, beautifully printed and will be available exclusively through the Hi-Fructose store on Wednesday, January 13th at Noon here. Get a better look at the print (and a little ransom note from the slowly being digested child) here!
Kids write the cutest letters, filled with grammar and spelling mistakes, especially when they are slowly being digested in the slime filled bowels of a monster’s stomach. It’s hard to focus on anything other then “Help Me. please….” or “the acid burns my eyes” or as one of the letters from Alex Pardee’s show decries: “I want to come home to eat the pancakes. It’s icky in here…” I had an advance preview of the show at Upper Playground, where the walls were littered with case file reports from hospital and police, hand written notes from the children trapped in Pardee’s paintings, and a huge sculptural monstrosity (complete with a video screen belly depicting a live action child surrounded by the BBQ bowels of a captor). Brave a selection of images from the night courtesy of the surprisingly crappy Casio Exilim here. Congrats to Pardee on such a great show.
