Gallery Mondays: Mark Mothersbaugh’s ‘Myopia’

MARK MOTHERSBAUGH: MYOPIA contemporary austin

Back in March when I visited Austin, Texas, I dropped by The Contemporary Austin to check out some art. The exhibit on view at the time was Mark Mothersbaugh’s ‘Myopia.’

My favorite part of the exhibit was the room filled with albums upon albums of pop art. Each card in the 4-section albums come across as a scene, and each album appears as its own mini drama.

Above is my favorite album. The card on the top right corner strikes me as most heart-wrenching because of the way the woman’s head is bowed down in deep thought over whatever had happened in the scene before.

Gallery Mondays: ‘Body and Matter’ @ Dominique Lévy Gallery

body and matter

Back in March I visited Galerie Perrotin with some friends to see Xavier Veilhan’s wooden Daft Punk sculptures. On the second floor was the Body and Matter: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Satoru Hoshino exhibit at the Dominique Lévy Gallery.

The abstract art in the exhibit looked much like the one above, some with varying colors. Apparently Japanese artist Kazuo Shiraga created the paintings by smearing his body through the paint on the canvas while wearing a winged-arm costume.

The way the paint dried on some parts of the canvas made this piece and some of the others look like lava, which I thought was pretty fascinating.
