Art Radar: 07.17.10



The summer has gotten hot and it seems like most people are on vacation or waiting to get there. This hasn’t stopped us for a minute from putting on our masks and preparing a grand summer showcase for you. First we bring you two brand new prints from Miss Van. The first, ‘Oldies II,’ is based on a classic painting of hers from 2005 while the other is the beginning of a new series entitled ‘Mascaras.’ And for all of your who might be traveling you know that no trip is complete without a few postcards. Miss Van is freshly back from her recent trips to Brazil and Mexico and she’s taking this opportunity to release the brand new “Mascarade” set of nine limited edition postcards, portraits based on her own travels. Masks are the theme, especially those that reveal more than they hide.

This makes me happy and horny all at the same time. There is definitely a strong presence of femininity and a dark sultry feel to Miss Van’s work.



Oh my hotness! I think I’ve had a crush on Jeremy Fish for a few years now. Don’t judge, he’s a hot bearded artist, I cannot resist. Well he’s hitting the road and his last stop, MY STOP. Seattle! He’s on the lone and dusty road with new works in tow in a rape, uh, party/merchandise van.

I really hate over saturation of the same old same old regurgitation all over the web. But being that KAWS is to be the Andy Warhol of our generation,  I couldn’t help but post this since it runs ALL THE WAY UNTIL JANUARY!

It would seem that Linder’s new book GOOD COP / BAD COP was designed site specifically for the gallery, however, the inspiration came from abroad. Ever the aspiring underground archaeologist, Linder’s newly discovered cave is a trove of saucy Polaroids chronicling one man’s forays into the red, taken mainly in Rio de Janeiro. Linder acquired the archive in a storage locker auction in Berkeley and concluded that they were all taken by one man, a retired African American police officer from Sacramento.

Here, Linder presents his reproductions of polaroids of the subjects chosen for reproduction in the book. An avid hunter but an ardent hater of taxidermy, Linder presents his ” repaired ” taxidermies as sculpture. On the opposite wall, figures from Linder’s fiberglass menagerie stare pensively at the two-dimensional taxidermy across the way on the other wall; duct-taped wild boar heads staring vacantly at the low tech digital prints of carnal trophies. The catalog contains an essay by Paul Karlstrom about Charles’ work and methods.



Emberley’s wonderfully simple books—Ed Emberley’s Big Green Drawing Book; Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book of Animals; Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book of Weirdos and dozens more—taught a generation of children to draw using the simplest of ingredients. Squiggles, triangles, dots, circles and the other building blocks of drawing came together in clear, step-by-step recipes.

Of course, some of the kids who surrounded themselves with Emberley’s books grew up to be professional artists. Opening July 17 at Scion’s Installation L.A. Gallery, “Ed Emberley & Friends” will demonstrate the breadth of influence that Emberley’s encouraging books have had on a generation of artists.

Curated by Caleb Neelon, the exhibition features Ed Emberley as well as five artists who were inspired by him. The artists include Raul Gonzalez, Seonna Hong, Matt Leines, Christopher Kline and Saelee Oh.
