A tribute to Ben Rodriguez, program director at Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the celebration will include a silent auction of Daniel Sutherland’s (scenic imagery for Alas) images, which will be on display at the gallery during July.
In her newest work, Natalie White has revived this endangered technology with otherworldly nude self-portraits, double exposures that incorporate NASA space photography and are transferred onto watercolor paper, and other images of the artist printed on vintage Polaroid stock.
Large-scale Polaroids of the same haunting woman, sometimes layered with stars, or bright colors surrounds the space at Gallery 151 in New York. Almost appearing as if they stemmed from an other-worldly place, the woman in the portraits is Natalie White. The photographs have been taken with the rare to find—only three exist—large-format 20 X 24 Polaroid camera, the same camera kind used by Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. The photos of White are a part of her latest exhibition, Transmissions From Space, which opened earlier this May.
Dillane is humble; “Flying Machine” is anything but low-key. Huge canvas paintings hang on the walls, while sculptures wearing KidSuper threads (Dillane’s hybrid art brand and studio) stand in the center of the space. There’s also a Beheld 3D photo booth, just for kicks.
The exhibition titled, “Flying Machine,” focuses on Dillane’s first-ever series of large scale oil paintings. His paintings display a strong post-impressionist influence. The curator of the art exhibit, Laura O’Reilly (@wallplayground) compares his aesthetics to those of late 19th century masters, Toulouse Lautrec and James Ensor, and views in his work “an innate desire to belong within the lineage of Western art history.”
The Flower Matrix is an extensive project which incorporates multiple formats and media including VR, augmented reality, ceramics, textiles and architectural rendering software. The project proposes a new kind of liminal space which weaves and encodes physical and digital spaces and textures to produce a mixed reality architecture, an aesthetics of the fake.
What you get: Beanbag pouf, ceramic tea sets, platters, and plates in limited artist editions, along with a signed certificate from the artist. Augmented-reality moving images can be viewed with the layar app.
