Selection from “Feather Collar” by artist Aaron Nagel (@aaronnagel). 24”x36” oil on canvas.
Aaron Nagel was born in 1980 in San Francisco, CA. He is a figurative oil painter who resides in Los Angeles, CA. Having received no formal training, he is entirely self-taught; a fact at odds with his classical approach to surrealism. In his current work, he explores specific themes of guilt and power, always associated with his views on the perils of organized religion and theism.

"Hillside and 179th - Queens 8-9pm" by artist Brett Amory (@BrettAmory). 86 x 90 inches
(218.44 x 228.60 cm) Oil on canvas.
Following his 2012 exhibition Twenty-Four in San Francisco, Amory spent a month in New York City, researching, photographing and filming various locations throughout the five boroughs to serve as reference material for his new series Twenty-Four in New York. The artist filmed a total of 40 locations, each in a one-hour increment at different times of day and night. Video footage of 24 locations will be projected in a grid of 24 frames in consecutive order beginning and ending with midnight. The hour-long intervals will run simultaneously, representing a full day in the city of New York.
Amory’s work portrays abstracted studies of urban life through fragmented cityscapes and anonymous, isolated figures. The exhibition includes twelve paintings documenting different locations throughout the city, some iconic institutions and others of the sadly, rapidly disappearing variety. The artist will also create a site-specific installation around one of the paintings, which incorporates a magazine stand with architectural components. #brettamory #art #artist #warholian #24inNY #painting #abstract #urban #painter #lifeinthestreets
"Lesser Kudu" by artist Peter Gronquist. (@petergronquist)
Mixed Media Sculpture, 60”x16”x55”
Artist statement: The evolution of desire through greed and consumerism is explored with a bit of irony and humor in the artist’s large-scale works, where taxidermied animals have their antlers sculpted into objects like replica weaponry or corporate logos, often before being gold-plated. The majestic beauty of the animals themselves sometimes stands at odds with the cold, sharp-edged beauty of glittering metal, but other works strike a softer chord.
Born in 1979, Peter Gronquist is a visual artist living in Portland, Oregon. Gronquist attended the School of Visual Arts for two years, after which he completed his Bachelors of Art at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2001. Gronquist has exhibited in galleries across the West Coast and New York. #art #artist #petergronquist #sculpture #warholian
