Pixel-based paintings defy you to ignore them

1 Comments · Wednesday, December 17, 2008
"I had a Eureka moment," Jimi Jones told an audience at a lecture last week for his current exhibition at downtown's Weston Art Gallery. The longtime active member of the Cincinnati arts scene had discovered he could incorporate pixels (the building blocks of computer graphics) into his paintings. Results of that breakthrough can be seen in the show's vibrant works.

The Binarians (Review)

Andrew Au delves into pluses and minuses at Clay Street Press

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 10, 2008
Andrew Au is a fellow of infinite jest who takes infinite pains to commit his jests to paper. For his text accompanying this show, he's adopted an antique style, reflective of biblical pronouncements but also handy in sending up scientific jargon. He has so much fun with it that senses reel.  

Art: Afterlifestyle at the Art Academy

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 9, 2008
Ralph Lauren, along with every WASP-engendered, suburban-circumscribed good-taste notion of the good life gets it in the eye in Carlton Scott Sturgill’s finely crafted and very funny show, Afterlifestyle, at the Art Academy of Cincinnati's Pearlman Gallery. The Ralph Lauren lifestyle, so commercially viable, seems to Sturgill akin to a quiet death by boredom. Sturgill’s versions of Ralph Lauren magazine ads show the models with closed eyes — already they have succumbed. He is perhaps the first artist ever to employ paint chips for satiric ends and, in another neat turn, he recycles Ralph Lauren shirts into handsome funereal flower arrangements. Death, anyone? Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday. Through Dec. 12.  

Art: Everage King at Parkside Cafe

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 9, 2008
Stop by Parkside Café in Walnut Hills between for an exhibition of Everage King’s small but choice paintings. They portray places you might know: The familiar Northside corner “Chase and Hamilton,” a front porch in “Withrow Vista,” “Mt. Auburn Hillside” among them. King, whose day job is installing art at the Cincinnati Art Museum, is a DAAP graduate and has a good eye for a telling scene. He works with ease in acrylic, gouache and that often ill-used medium, watercolor. Parkside is a breakfast/lunch place, open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. daily, and is also establishing itself as a site for art by local artists. King’s show will be up through January.
