Christian Vincent’s “Ear to the Ground” featured on VAS4448 

Art blog VAS4448.wordpress.com has featured work in Christian Vincent’s latest show, Ear to the Ground, at Mike Weiss Gallery!

Christian Vincent / The Space Between / 2012 / Oil on canvas / 90 x 100 inches

"…The first reason that caused me to become instantly infatuated with these enigmatic works was the unspoken language that was vibrating from it; a language that seemed spiritual yet haunting, allegorical yet mundane. I also felt as if the paintings were beckoning me to come closer to them and engage with them and found myself hesitant when I did decide to study them closer…"

Stefanie Gutheil Featured on BeautifulDecay.com!

Stefanie Gutheil’s new show Die Beobachter is featured in an article on BeautifulDecay.com by Danny Olda!

Stefanie Gutheil’s Paintings Are About to Lose It
"The work of Stefanie Gutheil is a wonderful mess.  Her current exhibit at the Mike Weiss gallery has the atmosphere of the precise moment a party becomes a riot.  Gutheil’s paintings incorporate fleshy globs of oil and acrylic paint, fabric, glitter, hair, and fur.  The seemingly turbid materials match the paintings’ libidinous subject matter.  Even some of the paintings frames  only seem to exist in order to be defied – cat’s tails, pants, hats all push past gilded frames and off the canvas.  In what she portrays and how she portrays it, Gutheil’s work pinpoints a curious place precisely between fun and horror – the moment before the last finger loses its grip.”

Stefanie Gutheil’s “Die Beobachter” in Arte Fuse

The opening of Stefanie Gutheil’s new solo show at Mike Weiss Gallery, Die Beobachter, was reviewed in Arte Fuse

"Flowing over and out of their gilded frames’ physical limits, these three-dimensional paintings capture grotesque scenes with animals, half-human figures and invented beasts that represent Gutheil’s continued exploration of excess, exaggeration, chaos, and figurative painting."

"In the year I have written for AF then couple that with so many art openings, shows, previews, and fairs in New York City even beyond, it merits a time to reminisce on 2012 and its kaleidoscopic array of visual arts. It is filled with so much wonder and surprises. But best of all, the privilege of writing for this online blog has given me great things beyond words. Besides outlining the notable shows I have attended – I am putting forth my BEST in SHOW as a personal stamp of what I love about art.” Check out the full article here.

New York Art Beat: Yigal Ozeri “Territory”

Check out this amazing review of Yigal Ozeri’s Territory by Mary Hrbacek in NY Art Beat.

Yigal Ozeri / Untitled, Territory / oil on canvas / 80 x 120 in. / 2012

"Yigal Ozeri salutes his country of origin in new oil paintings at Mike Weiss Gallery, that fuse the concept of the warrior goddess with the “universal soldier,” paying homage to heroine of the show, whose looks and reputed combat skills rival the attributes of the mythological goddess, Atalanta. His show entitled “Territory” explores an essential human archetype in direct, uncompromising images, rarely conjured in art today. In the United Kingdom, people honor and venerate the Queen as the figurehead that symbolizes the nation. In Israel, the nation places its hopes and expectations for the future, even its very survival, upon the reigning queen of the military."
