4 more days to check out Scott Harrison’s work in “The Pond, the Mirror, the Kaleidoscope

1375987655Harrison_cave_CMS

School of Visual Arts presents “The Pond, the Mirror, the Kaleidoscope,” an exhibition of emerging and established artists who graduated from SVA and are working in the Symbolist tradition. These “neo-Symbolists” make mythological and dreamlike pictures that challenge prevailing assumptions about narrative, subjectivity and figurative painting itself. As the exhibition title suggests, subjects may be environmental (“the pond”), societal and cultural (“the mirror”), or a post-apocalyptic, futuristic mash-up (“the kaleidoscope”). The exhibition is curated by Thomas Woodruff, chair of the BFA Illustrationand BFA Cartooning departments, and features work by alumni of that program as well as the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay Department, which is chaired by Marshall Arisman. “Like the Symbolists, today’s neo-Symbolists are arguably eccentric and obsessive, and they use low-tech methods to tell new stories to new audiences,” says Woodruff. “They make art that is intellectually surprising, brimming with visions of the world as it is—or how it could be. And like the Symbolists, they are sometimes dismissed as ‘mere illustrators’ because they work in a figurative tradition.” More than 30 paintings, drawings and sculptures are on view at the Visual Arts Gallery from August 20 through September 14. Exhibiting artists are SVA alumni from the BFA Illustration or MFA Illustration of Visual Essay departments: Jean-Pierre Arboleda, James Bascara, George Boorujy, Michael Combs, TM Davy, Steve Ellis, Scott Harrison, James Jean, Mark Lang, Sakura Maku, Alison Moritsugu, Timothy Okamura, Mu Pan, Matt Panuska, Rachel Pontious, Lane Twitchell, Martin Wittfooth and Jason Bard Yarmosky. School of Visual Arts has been a leader in the education of artists, ... Read More »

Famed tattoo artist Mark Mahoney is going strong on the Sunset Strip

By DiAngelea Millar Reblogged from: http://www.latimes.com Mark Mahoney has inked some of the top names in Hollywood. Operating out of an upscale tattoo parlor near the western end of the Sunset Strip, the owner of the Shamrock Social Club has become the go-to man for celebrities seeking tattoos. On a recent Thursday evening, wearing a fashionable gray suit over brown alligator-skin shoes, the lanky 56-year-old strolled through the busy studio, decorated with three-leaf clovers and portraits of the Virgin Mary, on his way to his customary 5:30 p.m.-to-1 a.m. shift. Several of Mahoney’s nine employees were already at work, their needles buzzing over custom tattoos that cost from $500 for a single sitting to many thousands of dollars for an elaborate tattoo.

Like, somehow a movie device portal would open up and she’d get a glimpse of her future life and she’d see me like, at the Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe!!! or kissing a really cute guy who’s totally in a band!

yoko-d-holbachie

Last Rites Gallery: What is your earliest memory of picking up a paintbrush? Tell us a little more about it. Yoko d’Holbachie: I attended a painting class run by an American couple when I was 3 years old. I drew monsters, ghosts and snails with a shell full of eye balls often. Last Rites Gallery: What does In the Dark mean and why did you choose it for your exhibition at Last Rites Gallery? Yoko d’Holbachie: I loved the gallery’s space coronation for the dark art, when I visited the Last Rites Gallery. It inspired me for new painting idea that the beautifully glowing critters in the gloom. What I wanted to paint for this exhibition is actually the gleam in the dark, not the dark. Last Rites Gallery: Please tell us a little bit more on why you paid tribute to contemporary and classical mythologies in some of your pieces? (Ayida Weddo, Hatmehit, Gorgon?) Yoko d’Holbachie: My critters in my painting had been living inside of me. They have no name. I borrow the stories from various kind of mythologies, when I give a birth to my critters and the story suits to them. Those goddesses I like are not just having super power but also evil, angelic, humanistic, and a mother… Read More »
