GEORGE HUGNET : THE LOVE LIFE OF THE SPUMIFERS




At the opening of George Hugnet’s The Love Life of the Spumifers at UBU Gallery last night, an older gentleman made a comment to my friend and I that ‘nothing changes – beauty stays the same from age to age.’ While that comment has provided fodder to many fiery debates, it cuts to the heart of what Hugnet offers us: Damsels, Demons, and Sex. These images activate our intrinsic fascination with beauty and the grotesque, and more specifically, our desire to see the fusion of the two.

DON PORCELLA- EVERYTHING AND NOTHING AT ALL @ SPATTERED COLUMNS, NY

This one is a hat’s off to one of my favorite artists and all around great people. We have been highly anticipating this solo show by Don Porcella and will be sure to be at the opening reception tomorrow night at Spattered Columns to experience the imagination and world of characters manifested in pipe cleaners, mixed media, and painted encaustic.



(view of the artist’s studio)

Don Porcella (BFA California College of Arts and Crafts, MFA Hunter College) has been a creative force in the New York City art world for over ten years. Porcella utilizes humble materials in innovative ways to craft a unique commentary on the human condition. Drawing from his own imagery of the suburban and his interest in folk art, cartoons, and science fiction, Porcella’s work allows the subjective and strange to penetrate humorous representations of a wildly imaginative reality. Don Porcella: Everything and Nothing at All includes new installations featuring cave painters, crystal skulls, alien encounters, bonfires, birds of prey, and other whimsical work.

Born and raised in Modesto, California, Don Porcella’s artwork has been exhibited at galleries in New York City, Berlin, Paris, Copenhagen, East Hampton, Washington D.C., Miami and San Francisco. Porcella’s art has been reviewed in the New York Times, NY ARTS, Fiber Arts Magazine, Chelsea Now, San Francisco Magazine and the Village Voice to name a few.

The opening reception for Don Porcella: Everything and Nothing at All will take place from 6pm-8pm on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at Spattered Columns, 491 Broadway, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10012. The show will run until October 28, 2011, and will feature a live musical performance in the gallery by the artist and Nicholas Fevelo on Wednesday, October 26th, 6pm-8pm.
