Raging voyeur Larry Clark’s set up a pop-up shop at LA bookshop Ooga Booga where he’s selling unique 5 x 7 photographs (mostly developed in local pharmacies) for $100 a pop. He says; “All the kids that come to my shows in thousands and could never afford 10 to 15 thousand dollars for a print … this is a pay back to all the skate rats and collectors who would like a souvenir so I can die happy.” The shop runs until February 4th.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.
LOL wishes you all the best for the festive season.
23rd October – 29th November 2014

New Zealand artist Rohan Wealleans creates paintings and sculptures comprised of multitudinous layers of house paint that are then incised to reveal the multi-coloured excavations beneath. The resulting paint chips generated by this process often become art objects in their own right. For Mailbox, they are presented as specimen-like curiosities, and as body adornments in photographs featuring Wealleans-styled naked alien babes. Part ‘geologist’, part voyeur, Wealleans always inhabits multiple guises.
Curated by Serena Bentley.
Rohan Wealleans is represented by Ivan Anthony Gallery, Auckland; Hamish McKay Gallery, Wellington and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney.
