"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

"Jaclyn Alderete and her solo show Indra’s Net" photographed by @mikecuffe at @moderneden Gallery.
Jaclyn Alderete is a San Francisco Bay Area artist, originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. She draws her inspiration from many things; the human condition, social and environmental concerns and desert nostalgia. You can find her work at the Kaleid Gallery in San Jose, CA and the Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.
Artist’s Exhibition Statement: “In ‘Indra’s Net’ I wanted to explore the ways in which people build and break boundaries between ourselves and our world. Our natural propensity to create artificial distinctions is eclipsed by our knack for finding connections through the means of vision, empathy, and insight. These are ideas I wanted to express both figuratively and conceptually. The depiction of reflected images within and around figures whose features are at once obscured and exaggerated, whose boundaries are at times undefined as they momentarily merge with their environment, delineates the pathways of our sometimes muddled perception. Contrasting with this is the imagery of fish, whose clear, ever-opened eyes are said to impart perpetual awareness to the unconscious. Fish, along with birds, are early and unambiguous indicators of the state of the environment which surrounds us, bestowing upon us a silent foresight.
This leads me to a desire to express themes of transformation, waking up, and coming into being. I believe the intrinsic need to communicate with, and find a connection to, the world around us plays a major role in my work.”

Loving the new Portland Cool Grey just released from @gamblincolors! The Portland Greys are among their top selling colors, and they’ve extended the line by adding the Portland Cool Grey. The dusty blue and mauve are less subtle than the new whites. These greys & the titanium buff, are spaced pretty evenly on the color wheel. So they can be used as a pretty amazing muted primary pallet. #warholianapproved #paint #gamblincolors #portlandcoolgrey #gamblin #oilpaint #painting
