Carey Maxon, Cost Not Lost (Diallo), 2019, Pig's blood & ink on paper, 23 × 31 in

Jenn Singer Gallery

On view via Artsy beginning March 20, 2019

Jenn Singer Gallery presents Carey Maxon: EYESIGHT, a solo exhibition of paintings & drawings by Carey Maxon, whose work is held in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) & Whitney Museum of American Art.

The Rwandan genocide, Syrian war, shooting of Amadou Diallo, sex trade, blood diamonds and the high cost of death and questions of worth of a human life are all part of the darkness held up as a mirror in Carey Maxon’s newest work.

The almost primordial imagery reflecting back to us through the paintings includes rough depictions, scribbled misspelled text, faltering lines, distorted yet almost offputtingly whimsical figures and exaggerated shape and color. These reflections are evidence of one woman's experience of a world that is loose around the edges and deeply troubled.

As Maxon explains, “the drawings naming human genocides in a broken, jumbled scrawl replete with spelling errors and word fragments are unselfconscious expressions of my own frustration in the redundant, harrowing recognition of the many corrupt layers in mass devastation. Failure to comprehend goes along with grief.”

What makes the work feel especially raw is Maxon’s crude use of pig’s blood in the palette. In addition to being an artist, life has taken Carey Maxon from her studio in Brooklyn, NY to Tuscany, Italy where she now works on an olive oil farm.  Annual rituals in Tuscany include the winter pig slaughter and feast, where no part of the animal goes to waste. A deeper connection to the earth and the rawness of life through such a different lens is slowly altering the artist’s medium. Captivated by the color alone, she incorporated some of the remaining blood into her latest works. While the use of animals' blood may make some uneasy, or downright angry, it is the most honest medium one could ask for given the darkness of the subject matter.

Throughout the exhibition, Carey Maxon’s typical dot work is strewn about in some works, but then suddenly comes together in soothing order and repetition in others. The artist’s visual impressions remain high contrast, glaring and unstable and may relate to a unique visual phenomenon she has experienced since a young age. Visual snow, convergence insufficiency and optic migraines are part of her working norm. It’s not only the way she sees, but a new way of seeing, living and processing.

As Maxon states, “a reduced palette and the repeated dot on line pattern connote the most basic rhythms of life; the heartbeat and the passing of time - sensations readily available even to the blind - and a humble order from which we all descend”.

Carey Maxon's artworks are available for online viewing via Artsy ( Acquisition inquiries may be sent to Jenn Singer Gallery (

In Berlin? Catch the very fun exhibition: Berry Kim's Berrylin March 19th opening 6-9 PM Rnjoy!

SomoS is delighted to present “B E R R Y L I N,” a solo exhibition by Artist-in-Residence Berry Kim (South Korea), in which she reinterprets the visual and textual language of Berlin using a fresh gaze and lots of humor. 
Berry Kim’s B E R R Y L I N, is a liberated realm freed from the pressures and expectations of South Korean society, yet, like Berry’s earlier work, still heavily based on the reinterpretation of urban life and consumer culture. A bright pop-culture world that playfully, but not uncritically, re-imagines the commercial and materialistic everyday goings-on of fashion, beauty, street life, art, and nightlife, B E R R Y L I N is a one-of-a-kind romp through a fantastical world, inspired by her time living in Berlin. Characters, landmarks, city streets, labels, brands and signs are animated and take on new meanings, and influences as extensive as 19th Century German iconography and art history, the Weimar Republic, to modern day club culture and computer games are channeled into witty, absurdist and irreverent artworks. 
Berry’s immersive installation consists of mixed-media works, painting, drawings, large scale fabric prints, objects, and wearable art – in between subversive department store, delirious apartment, and Wunderkammer, it parodies a hyper image/status-focused consumer society.
Opening Reception: March 19, 2019, 6-9pm

In NYC catch Patrick Pietroli Hugo Galerie exhibition Patrick Pietropoli March 23-April 1

472 WEST BROADWAY, NEW YORK, NY 10012                WWW.HUGOGALERIE.COM                212.226.2262




23 March - 21 April, 2019



HUGO GALERIE is pleased to present Coincidences, a solo exhibition featuring Patrick Pietropoli and his vision of when architecture and the figure collide. This show presents an entirely new body of work—one that takes the typical subject matter of the vedutisti and transforms it.

Vedutisti is an Italian word for painters whose canvases are as vast as they are intricate; these artists produce large works of sweeping vistas without sacrificing a single detail. Whether bustling cityscapes or ceremonial interiors, their scenes always depict architecture and figures with astonishing accuracy. Pietropoli is internationally recognized for his exceptional skill among contemporary vedutisti painters. With this collection, he gives a surrealistic spin to the historic genre.

Inspired as ever by what he describes as “the entanglement of complex shapes,” Pietropoli here eschews the usual formula of architecture and the figure to give us architecture within the figure. He even plays with the very concept of architecture—sometimes referring to what we might expect, such as a coffered ceiling or French facade; occasionally evoking the distinct framework of modern furniture; and other times referencing the structure of art history itself, inserting famous paintings and archetypes into his precise silhouettes. Like looking through a stereoscope, the silhouettes are cut-out windows into another dimension.

Discussing this compelling body of work, Pietropoli offered a quotation by Isidore Ducasse, a writer celebrated by the surrealists: “…beautiful as the chance meeting on a dissection table of a sewing machine and an umbrella.” This aphorism captures the essence of his new collection—an esoteric collage of images ripe with wit and talent. Rather than burden his paintings with prefabricated analysis, Pietropoli intends for viewers to decrypt each canvas in their own ways. And these works are certainly worth contemplating for years to come, as they slowly unfold in painted layers.

HUGO GALERIE is a fine art gallery in New York City specializing in contemporary figurative painting and sculpture. The gallery represents an international roster of artists working in a variety of media and range of genres. Please direct inquiries to

Artist reception for ongoing Mark Hogancamp exhibit at One Mile Gallery from 6pm-9pm March 23, 2019

Mark Hogancamp brings his work back to Kingston for an extended show at One Mile Gallery through May. We are open SATURDAYS ONLY during this off-season exhibit from February 16 to May 25. Hogancamp is a photographer and storyteller, but prefers to think of himself as a film director. He’s the creator of Marwencol, a 1/6 scale, WWII-era Belgian village in which he stages and photographs a complex narrative of Nazi intrigue, lesbian melodrama, and Sgt. Rock-style heroics.

On April 8, 2000, Mark Hogancamp was attacked outside of a bar by five men who beat him nearly to death. After nine days in a coma and 40 days in the hospital, Hogancamp was discharged with brain damage that left him little memory of his previous life. Unable to afford therapy, Hogancamp created his own by building a 1/6-scale World War II-era Belgian town called Marwencol in his yard and populating it with dolls representing himself, his friends, and his attackers. In the ensuing years, Hogancamp has rehabilitated his physical wounds by building from scratch the town’s structures and meticulously customizing the small dolls and props; he has come to terms with his psychological ones by involving these figures in elaborate and often violent narratives related to his attack and recovery. Hogancamp’s photographs of the town debuted in ESOPUS 5 in 2005; he was the subject of ESOPUS subscriber Jeff Malmberg’s critically acclaimed documentary Marwencol in 2010. In 2013, filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away) announced that he would direct a feature film based on Hogancamp’s life and work from a script written by Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands) starring Steve Carell as Mark. The film,Welcome to Marwen, was released December 21, 2018.


Welcome to Marwen DVD and Blu-ray release date is set for April 9, 2019 and available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes on March 26, 2019

Auction April 5, 2019


Sotheby’s auction on 5 April 2019 will be led by exceptional rare photographs by El Lissitzky, Margaret Bourke-White, Imogen Cunningham, August Sander, Mark Hogancamp and Ansel Adams.
