Begin Again Right Back Here
John Beech, Res #4, 2003, Plexiglass, MDF, foam.
Begin Again Right Back Here, curated by B. Wurtz, at White Columns, Oct 2008.
This is the show mentioned when I posted on Party at Phong's House... two of the best group shows I saw earlier this month. Both are artist-curated medium-specific shows built around central artists... the Chris Martin (painter) show stars Ron Gorchov, the B. Wurtz (sculpture) show grounded by a Sol Lewitt.
Begin Again Right Here included a number of favorite artists... John Beech at Peter Blum was one of the best shows I saw last year.
Nancy Shaver, Bluebox, yellow line, 2004, Wooden box, cardboard boxes, charcoal, flashe, acrylic and house paint.
Nancy Shaver had an excellent show at John Davis earlier this year... including this collaboration with Kenji Fujita. John Davis Gallery ROCKS!
Fawn Krieger, Case Study 67, 2008, Wood, plexiglass, carpet, silicone, plastic, photograph.
YAY to Fawn... I didn't even recognize this as hers.. she is multi-talented, everything is always really good. I'm for Fawn.
Fawn on anaba 2/2/06, Fawn on anaba 2/22/o8, Fawn at the Armory Show.
Diane Simpson, Apron no.5, 2002, mixed media.
Has a fifties vibe... a fetish object, some kind of bondage thing... but this piece is more like samurai armor than a kimono. Diane Simpson, featured on a good Chicago artblog.
Vincent Fecteau, untitled, 2006 - had to walk around and around this one.
Gareth Moore, Rock painting Turning Back, 1997/2008, Acrylic paint, masonite, glue - gems painted on gem construction, here is another angle.
B. Wurtz and a number of included artists show at Feature... I will most likely never be invited to show at Feature... nor White Columns (scroll down, haha).
