Greg Haberny’s chaotically provocative installations

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Saturday 23 November 2013

Greg Haberny’s work is at once playful, revolting, and sarcastic. Much like the DADA artists of old, Haberny seems to be drawn to expressively absurd themes. Everything from Alfred Hitchcock to Terry Richardson, Pin-up girls to vintage cartoons all find their way into his installations. By mixing these icons from popular culture, Haberny is able to […]

Zolton Contributor

By Zolton in New Illustration on Thursday 7 February 2013

What’s not to like about the fun, fluoro-dripped world of New York illustrator James Blagden, whose work is so bright and trippy, I feel like I need to wear shades just to do them justice. This guy going to be big, big, BIG. If these illustrations don’t do it for you, check out his stunning […]

Beck Wheeler Reader Find

By Beck Wheeler in New Art on Tuesday 23 August 2011

Anna The Red was born in Japan and now lives in New York. She makes art you can eat. Her Bento boxes feature characters from Dr Suess, Studio Ghibli and Maurice Sendak. I’m not sure whether I want to eat them, or leave them on the mantelpiece to look at until the ants claim them.

Nate Lowman’s Trash Landing

Olivier Olivier from Bikini Reader Find

By Olivier Olivier from Bikini in New Art on Wednesday 29 June 2011

This show just finished and was a fantastic sight. Nate Lowman made these shaped canvases of air fresheners, which where just smaller than life size. It kind of felt as thought the place smelt of America. The show was at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York.

Gaia plasters Baltimore

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Events on Wednesday 25 August 2010

Street artist Gaia has been so prolific here in Baltimore that I initially thought he was from here. Not so. The New York-born wheat-paster is quietly plastering the entire world with his stunning humanimals and stern-looking Native Americans.

Deniz Ozuygur

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Art on Wednesday 9 June 2010

Turkish-born, New York-based artist Deniz Ozuygur’s hilarious pieces tell sophisticated jokes that also, via crude, distorted, and disembodied forms, tap into a more innocent and tactile relationship we had with our bodies in grade school. Her Self High Five Machine is hysterical, as is her Alterations series, in which she messes with common kids’ items — Gummi Worms, Funyuns, a gum eraser — before repackaging them and returning them to the manufacturer.

Katherine Mangiardi

Ilana Kohn Reader Find

By Ilana Kohn in New Art on Tuesday 7 July 2009

I learned of the work of New York artist Katherine Mangiardi from the Merchant’s House Museum of all places. So appropriate. Mangiardi’s paintings of lace are unbelievably haunting, like the delicate, filmy fabric of a ghost, or like the painfully decaying lace of an antique dress. I also found her fabric installations at various historic museums around the East Coast rather beautiful. I find the idea of being able to set up an installation in a historic house pretty intriguing.

D.E. Cooper

Zolton Contributor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 5 March 2008

I love the work of New York artist and sculptor, D.E. Cooper. Of his latest series he says: ‘I’m exploring themes of faith and inner strength. Of course, the road to such findings are never easily traveled and without obstacles. Along the way the characters within my paintings all experience feelings of doubt, anxiety, weakness and hopelessness’.

Dawn Ng

Zolton Contributor

By Zolton in New Illustration on Wednesday 13 February 2008

The work of New York-based artist, Dawn Ng, is amazing. Of her illustrations, she says: ‘I’ve always had an obsession with words. I like how you can easily take sentences apart and play musical chairs with different words and their meaning. Each illustration in this New Yorker series begins from holding a word or group […]
