Brett Amory in London

Written by Trippe

Bay Area painter Brett Amory is set to open Twenty-Four in London, a continuation of the critically acclaimed "Waiting" series, at London's Lazarides on March 6th - Show details

Amory spent a week traversing London via bike capturing his essence of the city through photos and videos which he then created paintings from.

From Kensington and Wimbledon to Hackney and Brixton, each painting portrays a localised arena featuring a diverse demographic of the city dwellers including night clubbers, commuters, school children and traders all going about their daily routine. Each unique setting is quietly and calmly depicted through the artist’s distinctive painterly brushstrokes and scenic anticipation.

Lazarides is pleased to present Twenty-Four in London, a continuation of the critically acclaimed ‘Waiting’ series by American contemporary artist Brett Amory. Following his 2012 and 2013 exhibitions, Twenty-Four in San Francisco and Twenty-Four in New York, respectively, Amory’s first solo exhibition at Lazarides Rathbone will present twenty-four paintings of London's most iconic locations, including The National Museum, Abbey Road and The Blind Beggar alongside multimedia installations in their flagship gallery on Rathbone Place.

Christopher Burch's Br'er Rabbit

Oakland based John Felix Arnold (showing at FFDG in Oct '14) emailed over some work from his friend and artist Christopher Burch whose show The Missed Adventures of Br'er Rabbit and Br'er Death in the Land of Shadows: Stepping Razors, Chapter 22-Dem Bloodletting Blues (PHOTOS) just ran at Hoffman Lachance Contemporary in St. Louis last month.

Christopher Burch & John Felix Arnold both got their MFAs from SFAI at the same time back in '06.

Anyone elses' parents read them Br'er Rabbit stories when they were kids? Guess if your parents were from the south and were born in the 1920s, like my dad, then maybe.

The Br'er Rabbit stories can be traced back to trickster figures in Africa, particularly the hare that figures prominently in the storytelling traditions in West, Central, and Southern Africa. These tales continue to be part of the traditional folklore of numerous peoples throughout those regions. In the Akan traditions of West Africa, the trickster is usually the spider Anansi, though the plots in his tales are often identical with those of stories of Br'er Rabbit.

1000 Drawings by Akira Horikawa

Tuesday, 18 February 2014 16:02
Written by Trippe

My name is Akira Horikawa, born in Japan, live and work in NY. For past five years, I have been continuing a project called "1000 Drawing Project." In pocket size sketchbooks, I draw and reinterpret images that come into my mind, happenings, dreams, and emotion at the time. Through the project, I try to re-evaluate values and cognition that I have experienced in my life to welcome the nonsense with awe. Currently, there are about 36 pages left to reach 1000. I have created a blog about last 100 drawings of the project. -Akira Horikawa
