Chelsea snapshots


Shell casings on the floor - Margeret Evangeline at Stefan Stux. Pick up a copy of the artist statement while you're there. It's one of the best I have read in a long time. This new body of work consists of stainless steel panels shot by the artist using various weaponry. I think it's a strong show, but I didn't get a good photo of the works, so you're getting this one instead.



Details of a scuplture and a wall piece - Jim Drain at Greene Naftali. He is one of the founders of Forcefield, the first of the Providence, RI collectives to become famous. Most people first saw their work at the 2002 Whitney Biennial, but the cognoscenti discovered them via Dean Daderko and his Parlour Projects gallery.


Jesse Bercowetz describes this as the "Uri Geller eye" from the sculpture he and Matt Bua did for a group show at Alona Kagan. I couldn't get a good photo of the live scorpion in the sculpture's head. It think their piece plus Jane Benson's are the strongest of the show. Their web site is here.

i am curious about Margeret Evangeline's artist statement - what about it makes it good? do you know if it is online anywhere? i checked her web site and did not see it. personally i have an aversion to putting my statement on a web site, or even in an exhibition. but i am curious about her's now...

I love that image of Jesse Bercowitz, the spoons relecting like eyes, the red and glue work together as insides, and the people amongst it bring it all down to the real world. I'm glad I couldn't see the scorpion,it means more to me without it.
