Anna Uddenberg: HOME WRECKERS

Anna Uddenberg. Enough said! 

Though her thought-provoking critique of the commodification and objectification of the female body in consumerist culture, her 'HOMEWRECKERS', her faceless and larger-than-life, grotesquely hypersexualized female figures, pointing us out just how crazy it is to sex up everything from couches to laundry detergents.

Fancy interiors, cozy furnishings with sofas and carpets…All settings  that underscore the artificial and contrived associations between femininity and domesticity. Conjuring images of spaces one might find in homes, hotels, or staged reality TV environments, reinforcing their accessibility and familiarity.

Deborah Roberts: What about us?

Sarah Roberts' artistic journey has been a testament to her dedication and prowess. Her upcoming exhibition in New York is not only a significant milestone but also her third collaboration with the gallery. Known for her exceptional ability to depict Black children and adolescents, Roberts uses vibrant colors and striking patterns set against white or black backgrounds. Through collage, a medium with a rich history of challenging norms and conventions since the early twentieth century,  her upcoming show will feature some of her largest works to date, Composing works using found materials sourced from the internet, literature, and photographs, and juxtaposing these with hand-painted details, Roberts deconstructs stereotypes perpetuated by mainstream visual culture. Combining a range of skin tones, facial features, hairstyles, and clothing, she presents an expansive, multidimensional view of Blackness.

'Time on my hands' a show by Mark Whalen 

Casa Gilardi presented by SAENGER Galería.⁠

⁠⁠

In the heart of Mexico City, Mark Whalen presents his latest solo exhibition, aptly titled "Time on My Hands." This exhibition marks Whalen's inaugural solo show marked by the presence of his unique maquettes that come to life on expansive canvases filled with vibrant colors. The playfulness that defines Casa Gilardi, with its deep reds reminiscent of traditional Mexican sweets, the addition of a magenta wall by the swimming pool designed purely for pleasure, and the brightly painted walls meticulously smoothed to create the illusion of light, finds a harmonious reflection in Whalen's use of fluorescent hues, whimsical facial expressions, and dynamic body language within his works.
