Press release: Other Criteria Launch Yoko XXXVI , A porcelain sculpture edition by Don Brown

Other Criteria are pleased to announce the launch of Yoko XXXVI, a porcelain sculpture edition by Don Brown and his first work in this medium. You are invited to view the work at a pre-Art 14 brunch, at Other Criteria.

Brown’s series of sculptures of his wife Yoko, have been a continuous focus throughout his career. For Yoko XXXVI, he worked with the renowned Nymphenburg Porcelain Makers in Munich, Bavaria, over a two year period, continuing to explore questions of representational perfection.

His sculptural vocabulary harks back to classical antiquity and the elegance and idealism of neoclassical marbles such as Canova’s The Three Graces (1814-17), while also invoking modernist realism as instanced by Degas’ La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans (1881). In Browns distinctive take on classical sculpture, the place of an idealised heroine is taken by the real-life figure of the artists wife in a casual pose. Yoko becomes a conflation of the generic and the individual. 

Fred Tomaselli at Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

February 19, 2014 by Emma

12th January - 2nd March 2014

The exhibition presents a selection of works that span the past 10 years of the artist’s career, including his elaborately layered paintings and New York Times collages.

Fred Tomaselli is known for his visually packed paintings that are hybrid in materials, subjects, and cultural references. A single piece may be comprised of brightly colored passages of paint, photo-collage, found images from field guides and magazines, and drugs such as aspirin, marijuana leaves, and ecstasy pills. These materials are layered onto wood panels and suspended in slick epoxy resin. Tomaselli’s stylized works range from psychedelic-patterned abstractions to idealized representations of allegorical figures, animals, nature, and the cosmos. The more time spent with the artist’s paintings, the more details emerge, and the works become increasingly complex and dynamic.

Tomaselli’s mesmerizing scenes bend reality through visual stimulation and seduction, illustrating the utopian and transcendental abilities of art. His works also comment on the artifice of suburban America in the 1960s and 1970s and the subcultural quest for escapism–whether it be reached through hallucinatory experiences or trips to amusement parks such as Disneyland–realities that are particularly tied to the artist’s upbringing in California during those years. On his work, Tomaselli states, “It is my ultimate aim to seduce and transport the viewer into the space of these pictures while simultaneously revealing the mechanics of that seduction.”

"An American in Paris: Works from a Private Collection" Photo by Zarko Vijatovic

From Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Black Bean Soup of 1962 to Jeff Koons’ Hole III of 2008, An American in Paris presents a panorama of the avant-garde of the past half century. This selection from a bold and discerning American collection highlights pivotal, often large-scale works from contemporary artists who have persistently engaged unexpected subject matter through uncommon media. Richard Prince’s The Housewife and the Grocer (1988)–pink text on a matte gold background–is an archetypal work from his deadpan Joke series; the crusted surface of a black canvas by Damien Hirst is, upon closer scrutiny, comprised by thousands of dead flies. Read more about the exhibition on the Gagosian Gallery website.

Other Criteria present new work by Johannes Albers

February 11, 2014 by Mary

Other-by-Johannes-Albers

Published by the artist, this glass suitcase entitled, ‘Other’ is now on display at Other Criteria in Hinde Street until 5th March 2014 alongside a small exhibition of the artists books and limited editions.

Albers says, ‘Every time a suitcase comes up in a story something will happen. The planning stage is completely over and one packs his suitcase and leaves. With a suitcase we cross a borderline. The other side. Hence the title ‘Other’. It can be any border, really. So for me it symbolises new beginnings. A fresh start, a new adventure. In my mind all new beginnings are fragile, as we never quite know what is going to happen. I love the fragility of my suitcase. I placed it in the gallery a bit like unattended luggage, as I wanted to transport some eerie danger element as well. Having lived in London during the IRA bombings an unattended suitcase definitely has got something eerie. I like that eerieness, too. And I think all beginnings are fragile and dangerous as well. Other connotations are plentiful. The money suitcase in a game show for example and sometimes I think it gives you a look into something that’s normally hidden. A bit like an ultrasound image of ones dark inner body.The super main thing is that life is a journey.’
