Painter Adrian Cox continues to expand the mythology of his hybrid Border Creatures in “Awakenings.” Opening at Beinart Gallery on April 6, the show takes us inside the Borderlands and the latest narratives involving his fictional race of creatures that are in harmony with the natural world. This show features a new being, named Penitent Spirit, dwelling his lush world. Cox was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 47.
Troy Coulterman’s sculptures bring the sensibilities of comic book art to life. Though no direct narrative is assigned for the viewer, the characters and forms appear ripped straight from the pages of pulp and sci-fi tales. Coulterman was last featured on HiFructose.com here. Next month, the artist has a new show at Beinart Gallery, with the above piece included in the mix.

The oil paintings of Lukifer Aurelius carry a surreal and mystic energy, its subjects often in a transformative state. The Brisbane artist is part of a new duo show with Alex Garant at BeinArt Gallery in Australia titled “Seeing Between,” running through May 27. The gallery says that the painter’s figures are “seemingly infused with fire or, at the very least, embers, striking a chord with perhaps our most primitive memories.”
Just in time for Halloween, the new oil paintings of Beau White are as unsettling as they are absorbing. For this set, the Melbourne-based artist adds new layers to his work by integrating food and sweets alongside his gruesome faces. In a new group show at BeinArt Gallery in Australia, titled “Memento Mori, Memento Amare,” his latest work is collected. Isbael Peppard and Jonathan Guthmann also have pieces in the show.
Ben Howe’s arresting oil paintings offer hyperdetailed and eerie reflections on humanity. A new show at beinArt Gallery in Australia collects his newest paintings under the titled “Weave.” The new show tackles “themes of mortality, isolation, longing, melancholy and loss and sits somewhere between the physical constraints of reality and the anarchic realm of the subconscious.” Howe was last mentioned on HiFructose.com here.
