i will eat my way through NYC

mirrors sketch

I'm sneaking this post in a little early because tomorrow I am getting on a plane to NYC to see some friends, have some fun, eat yummy NYC food and party with lots of Jewish family at my cousin's bar mitzvah. Hope to run into some cool art while I'm there and maybe I'll even make some myself.

I made a MESS

Mess Cover

So basically because I can't sit still for 5 minutes without coming up with a new project to take on, I decided to make a little limited edition magazine to create a venue for some really creative and talented people I know. It's called "Mess" for the sole reason that I can now say I made a Mess. Art, comics, writing, photography, etc.

And yes, I hope to make another even bigger and better Mess sometime. This first edition is free because it's kind of a test run but in theory future Mess' will have a fee ONLY to cover the cost of printing.

Eventually there will be a website with more information about the people involved.

As we speak, a limited number of copies of this 'zine' are being sprinkled around Los Angeles and by the end of next week Seattle, New York, and Philadelphia. There are a few copies still in my possesion so if anyone is interested in having one please email me at andreashear(at)gmail.com and I will just send you one, no cost to you at all.

I am considering making Thursday "moleskine day" when I will share some of the nonsense that spues from my brain every so often...

Elizabeth Peyton at the Regen Projects

Among the names at this show were Sophia, Romy and Roman Coppola all looking super fab. Like Mitra, this show made me miss NYC. I interned at Gavin Brown Gallery for like a week once. Why I left I can't quite remember but one of my tasks was working on Elizabeth's show and I just really love love a painterly painter who paints the people in her life. I'm so glad I didn't miss this one.

Next to the "Heart Throb" show at Merry Karnowsky Gallery featuring Miss Van,
Junko Mizuno and Aiko Nakagawa:

MK gallery

Miss Van

I loved the installation of the main room. The dark colors on the wall really set the mood for the work.

I tried to make the Mark Ryden show but the line was so long that they ended the show before we got in. I've heard it's amazing so hopefully I'll catch it next week. I also heard that show had quite an extensive celeb cast as expected.

blitzkrieg flu

So this crazy blitzkrieg flu got me this week resulting in the tardiness of this post about last weekend's galleries. But better late than never so here goes:

KitschenSyncShow07_04

Friday night Kitschen Sync show at La Luz De Jesus staring some of the usual suspects and some new names...
With these ginormous group shows it's kind of a lot to wrap your head around. It's like, there are "areas of the gallery" that I'm drawn to instead of specific artists. I hope that's what's intended.


Jordan Isip
a piece that i liked by Jordan Isip.

Sat. night after going to a friends' show at UCLA I headed to Culver City for the art insanity that is Culver City on a Sat. night these days...


benTour

Loved this installation at BLK/MRKT by Ben Tour.
The entire show was very likeable.

Andy Howell at lab101 gallery:
