VNA veterans, Hyland Mather issue 33 (@thelostobject) and Mando Marie issue 21 (@seeyouthroughit) are having their two person collaborative exhibition, ‘This Is Why I’m Such A Mess’ at CAVE Gallery in Venice, CA opening this Saturday June 10th 6-10pm, left coast time.
I’ve known Hyland Mather (thelostobject) for many years and we’ve done quite a large number of creative projects together. Beyond the fact that I have always loved Hyland’s, Andenken Gallery, and I admire his own creating styles as an artist, I can also say with confidence that we are good friends. As part of the ongoing project, The Jaunt, I sent Hyland off to Haifa, Israel. Tonight an exhibition to showcase the Jaunt Forma sculptures that Hyland made in honor of that trip will be on display at the famed Amsterdam local The Garage . This is the one time that all of these sculptures will be on display before they ship out to their new homes for the collectors who supported the trip. I caught up with Hyland in advance of the show to talk a bit about this and a bit about that.
Tattooed Mom, or as it is affectionately known to Philly locals, ‘TMoms’, is a place to eat, a place to drink, and a place to meet. You might think to call it a bar and a restaurant…but it’s actually not, it’s more of a Temporary Autonomous Zone, that just so happens to be fairly permanent. Check it out.
‘Direction / Instruction’ is a traveling group exhibition boasting an outstanding lineup of artists.
Having already enjoyed successful stops in Denver at Svperordinary and at CAVE Gallery, Venice Beach, Cali, ‘Direction / Instruction’ is currently on expo thru September 17th at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia.
Graphic Surgery has been honing their brand of minimalism for quite some time now. Their bold, simple, and striking marks in abandoned spaces and meticulously crafted work for galleries are increasingly drawing appreciation from patrons and peers.
Recently I sent over a few questions, half dozen to be exact. GS is a duo of Dutchies, Erris Huigens, and Gysbert Zijlstra. I sent each the questions independently, and asked them to answer them ‘blindly’ ..a kind of The Dating Game , questionaire, just to see how congruent is the party line. Turns out…pretty much on target.
