CHAOS PAYS

Opening Reception Saturday, September 27th, 2014

7pm – 10pm

7920 Santa Monica Blvd.

West Hollywood, CA 90046

“There is a dance that takes place in the shadow of an instant; all creatures of all different periods decide to meet. The ghost of practicing illegal acts is alive in strong lines. The political act against today’s corporate conundrum, a rude way for selfish teenagers to be ignorant, a personal representation of self through the subjective medium of art. Chaos Pays.” – HORFEE


 

New Image Art is proud to present Chaos Pays, the first North American solo exhibition of Beaux Arts graduate and Parisian street artist Horfee. Through drawings, murals, paintings, and object making Horfee explores the creative methods of spontaneity and experimentation that have made his eccentric graffiti and studio work internationally recognized in Europe and abroad. Over the past few years Horfee has exhibited in various prestigious international institutions including the National Gallery in Prague, Kulturhuset Art Center in Stockholm, and the Palais de Tokyo in France among others.

As Horfee has continued to evolve artistically, so has his desire to engage in more concept-driven work within the gallery setting. Drawing influence from historical avant-garde art movements including the Cobra movement, the Gutai group, and Tachisme, Horfee’s paintings evoke a sense of physicality and action that compliment and relate to his work outside the gallery. His semi-abstract paintings are imbued with vibrant color, improvisational brush/spray techniques, and often depict distorted representational references inspired by his fascination with underground comic and zine cultures.

The discipline Horfee gained through actions outdoors must, in his eyes, continue to remain as a major source of inspiration indoors.   Above all, the most important thing beyond the outlines, fill-ins, and travels is to convey the feeling initially had while creating. In the end it’s not about abandoning outside endeavors for inside but rather presenting both in a seamless existence that can be observed for what it is; expression.

SABER (born 1976, Glendale, California) is an American graffiti artist, and painter working in Los Angeles. The Washington Post described him as one of “the best and most respected artists” in his field. Saber is most famous for an exceptionally large piece he did on the concrete bank of the Los Angeles River in 1997.

RIME – Born 1979 in Brooklyn, New York, Jersey Joe aka RIME spent his early years playing hide and seek with his brothers, getting in trouble, and learning about women from trash found Playboy magazines. The only artistic person in his family, Joe was influenced by the art from Garbage Pail Kid trading cards, Looney Tunes, and characters from the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Baseball card collecting and bike rides up to the comic book store became a thing of the past once graffiti came into the picture. Joe began writing graffiti along his newspaper route in late 1991. Using the name “RIME”, the initial interest soon lead to a full-on obsession that seemed full of possibilities.

After a few arrests as a juvenile in 1995, RIME ended up in New Jersey; a blank canvas filled with a labyrinth of virgin highway walls and trains. Thriving in his new state, RIME began to travel and paint other parts of the USA and Europe. Wanting more, RIME dropped out of college and moved to Los Angeles in 2005. With Los Angeles as his base, RIME continued to paint, exhibit, and teach graffiti to kids from inner city public schools. A habitual traveler, Joe has circled the globe several times over painting and exhibiting in dozens of cities. To Joe, not much is more satisfying than bumming it abroad with a wrinkly, stamp filled passport in your front pocket. Professional Joseph makes a living doing the same shit he does for pleasure. Staying active with work that is a true translation of his personality. Not really into dressed up formalities, RIME would say that you should already know or go figure it out for yourself.

DABSMYLA – A lot of the time when we explain to people what we do and how we work they say… “Man..you work together, and you are a couple! I’d end up killing my girlfriend/boyfriend if we collaborated on everything we did!” I guess we are pretty lucky…two peas in a pod! Two crazy, work-a-holic, mad dorks in a pod! After years of living, painting walls and working together we have only become closer, stronger and even more in sync. Every day we wake up, paint all day…and keep each other entertained with constant chatter and stupid jokes. Who could ask for more out of life!! We are both originally from Melbourne Australia, and have been living and working in LA for the past four years, soaking up the sun and chaos that surrounds us.

This duo of six-color silkscreen prints is crafted in Los Angeles using the finest paper and archival inks.

“I think of this as a color rotation piece meaning, between these 2 prints, rules are defined on how color cycles through the piece. Think of rotation 1 as the starting point while rotation 2 acts not only as the second step but as the key to understanding the set of rules that govern how the colors travel.” – Erin D. Garcia

Erin D. Garcia is a visual artist based in Los Angeles. Originally from the Deep South, he and his work have both taken a long migratory path with many twists and turns along the way. Garcia’s current work is an exploration of where the human capacity for abstraction intersects or conflicts with the sensory desire for specificity. Each one of his drawings or paintings is part of a process of distillation, and there is a distinct feeling when taken together as a series that they are driving ever closer to a revelatory moment. The process of the work is exceedingly present, the pieces are inextricable from the practice of their generation.

POSTER CHILD PRINTS (PCP) is dedicated to selling limited edition screen prints. We started PCP to make art accessible to collectors of all stripes-from novice enthusiasts to established connoisseurs. PCP sells high-quality prints at modest prices so that art is within reach to all. We work with the artists to create authentic works of art, each piece is individually authenticated to guarantee its uniquely limited status. We deliver the finest prints from a wealth of accomplished artists and rising talent.

V1 GALLERY PROUDLY PRESENTS SEISMIC by Carl Krull & MAYBE NOT TODAY OR TOMORROW…. by Jesper Dalgaard – Opening Friday 26.09.14

V1 GALLERY PROUDLY PRESENTS

SEISMIC

A SOLO EXHIBITION BY CARL KRULL

OPENING: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 26.09 2014. TIME: 17.00 – 22.00
EXHIBITION PERIOD SEPTEMBER 27 – OCTOBER 25. 2014.

Carl Krull has made a series of 22 incredible drawings for his second solo show Seismic at V1 Gallery. Six of the drawings where made from the passenger seat on a road- trip across the United States in 2013. As a human seismograph he sat with the paper rolled around a tube drawing one line after another, incorporating or letting every bump in the road affect the flow of lines. The drawings becoming topographical maps of the journey and their creation.

In an almost sculptural manner, Carl Krull seems to break with the two-dimensional surface of the paper. He employs drawing techniques that simultaneously act as obstructions and potential. The obsessiveness of the line work is an ongoing exploration. Rather than having contours that outlines a subject, an abundance of lines seems to protrude the subject.
As a spectator your eye is constantly on the move. Your eyes start a journey following a straight line from the edge of the paper, moving horizontally towards the center, the line rises – sometimes thickens – and falls back down before it makes a turn in the shape of an eye and runs back parallel with itself to return to the edge of the paper just below its starting point.

Faces and shapes resembling natural phenomenons such as tree rings and stalactite caves press through this grit of lines in playful and whimsical shifts. They are in a constant flux of change as in a state of dissolution and creation, being and not being. The large formats (eg. 172 X 118 cm) that characterize Carl Krull’s works intensify the spectator’s journey. Carl Krulls’ surreal universe is a place where everything is under constant transformation in an almost meditative flow and where the artistic process is as vital as the works. Carl works as a performer, sculptor and draughtsman.

Carl Krull (b. 1975) lives and works in Denmark. He has a Master of Arts from Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland and San Carlos Academy of Fine Arts in Mexico City. He has been exhibiting at Aros, Aarhus Art Museum, Denmark, Charlottenborg Kunsthalle, Denmark and abroad at Flatfile Galleries, Chicago, USA and Art Studio Itsukaichi, Akiruno, Tokyo, Japan. It’s Carl Krull’s second solo show at V1 gallery.

MAYBE NOT TODAY OR TOMORROW. BUT SOME FINE DAY WE WILL LEAVE THIS SICK OLD WORLD, BECAUSE THERE ARE BETTER PLACES OUT THERE. WONDERFUL PLACES, WHERE WE CAN LIVE AND BREATHE, WITHOUT HAVING TO FEAR WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING.

A SOLO EXHIBITION BY JESPER DALGAARD IN THE DEPOT

OPENING: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 26. 2014. TIME: 17.00 – 22.00
EXHIBITION PERIOD SEPTEMBER 27. – OCTOBER 25. 2014.

Sending a sculpture into the stratosphere is no easy task. Jesper Dalgaard started toying with the idea many years ago. Dalgaard has always worked with an element of science fiction, utopia and potentially dystopia in his sculptural works. Hanging planets, capsules and otherworldly structures made from a variety of materials. He has turned museums and galleries into strange futuristic architectural landscapes and found potential in man leaving earth for settlements in uncharted areas of the universe.

For his latest sculptural project and film he collaborated with The Technical University of Denmark sending a stratospheric ballon attached to a planet sculpture mounted with 3 lightweight HD cameras, 36 kilometers up into the sky. In the multiscreen installation you leave earth on a magnificent trip on a green planet surrounded by a strange wooden structure. As you rotate into the sky you are filled with a sense of hope but also a sting of hubris. This duality is typical for the work of Dalgaard, that often examines the fine line between potential and outright disaster. With the new installation Dalgaard offers the viewer a new perspective on his practice; instead of observing the sculptures from the outside, we are invited onboard to enjoy the view from the inside.

Jesper Daalgard, born 1974, Denmark, lives and works in Copenhagen. Dalgaard is a unique artist working with a sci-fi idea and philosophy that spills into a variety of artistic mediums. Dalgaard has recently created solo shows at Stadtgalerie Kiel (2012), Germany and Kunsthal Nord (2012), Denmark. A large-scale sculpture is currently on view at Secret Garden III at Museum Gl. Holtegaard, Denmark. In 2012 a monograph on Dalgaard’s work “WE ALL HAD A STRONG SENSE OF BEING PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL – BUT WERE WE REALLY? was published. This project is generously supported by The Danish Arts Council.

We look forward to seeing you.
