Michael Callas’s paintings look like familiar images from the visual lexicon—only viewed through the eyes of someone on an acid trip. Rooted in Pop art, street art, graphic design, and drafting, his paintings are done entirely with spray paint and stencils.
His new exhibition at Detour Gallery in Red Bank, New Jersey, titled “Case Study (Southern Modern),” features a group of paintings made over the last five years. Many of the works, grouped in sets, share the same imagery but are rendered in wildly different color pallets. At first, the gesture seems like a play on the commodification and mass-production of art, or maybe just an excuse to use the same stencil more than once. But the meaning is subtler—and darker—than that.
In regards of his solo exhibition "LaBua", Industry Magazine interviews Michael LaBua on his inspirations and life as an artist.
This weekend, Detour Gallery presents "Re-America," a group exhibition featuring works from Caribbean and South American artists, as well as Latin American artists living in the United States. Paintings, mixed media and sculptures range from figurative to abstract. The show was curated by Julia Rivera, a Puerto Rican artist from Freehold.
Schapira and Grunewald both believe in art for art’s sake and derive influence from each other. Their collaborative works convey the absurdity of contemporary existence, evoking the intensity of psychosis through bold color and erratic shapes. This can be seen in their “Ambition Man” series, which depicts abstract figurative forms against expressionist backdrops. The men in this series are constructed out of imagery related to professionalism and success such as cars, business suits, and vices. These pieces perfectly encapsulate the professional and creative drive of the entrepreneurs-turned-artists, who exhibit a steadfast devotion to their work and art.
