Overdrive @ Rotofugi featuring Mcbess and Netherland - Jan. 16th to Feb 1st. (Chicago)
It was only recently that I discovered that Netherland was actually the alias of our very own David van Alphen. I have long been fascinated by his retro collage work. Here is the message from Rotofugi: Our next exhibit is a loosely rock and roll themed affair featuring UK-based illustrator McBess and Chicago-based collage master Netherland (aka David van Alphen, who just happens to be our gallery curator, and fresh off a solo show at M Modern to boot).
Sure, accuse us of a little nepotism, we don't mind, because this show will still MELT YOUR FACE. Period. Both McBess and Netherland will be at the opening. Please come on out and see our new larger gallery make it's debut!
'Misadventures' by Dan-Ah Kim @ Giant Robot - Jan. 10th - Feb. 4th (New York)
Brooklyn painter and designer Dan-Ah Kim creates a universe filled with a foreign but beautiful nature. Here is the note from Giant Robot: Giant Robot is proud to host an art show by Dan-ah Kim, a Brooklyn-based artist and designer who divides time between making art and freelancing in film and television.Of her recent work, the Pratt Institute graduate says she has found inspiration in everything from history and mythology to constellations. Kim mingles such stories and curiosities with her New York surroundings to create multi-layered, highly textured experiences and imagery of new worlds featuring female protagonists and fantastic creatures in heroic, colorful settings.
