“Experimenting with mediums is the phase I am in right now”, says Sol, who just started using oil paint a year ago. “It is a huge challenge for me, and I feel it’s good because there are so many possibilities to be explored. My biggest rule is to trust my instinct.” – Amy Sol
A man or machine, we ask ourselves this as less than six months later Brian Viveros is at it again with a new body of work for Scope NY. You will find a vibrant preview of the show up on Hi-Fructose.com now, Viveros playing with a new color palette and pushing the details in his work.
The helmet represents strength to Viveros who flips the roles previously given to men in traditional portraiture, and replaces them with tough women. – Hi-Fructose

We’ve been steadily following the expansion of Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles into overseas territory with their ongoing ‘LAX’ exhibition series.

Hi-Fructose’s coverage of Nosego’s ‘Along Infinite River’ is insightful into the work and the artists. Check out the full story on their website now.
Animals in Nosego’s work also hold emotional symbolism for the artist, who uses them as motifs to express his different feelings. When transmuted together, they also come to represent the never-ending connectivity that can be found within nature.

Hi-Fructose stopped by our opening last Saturday for Yosuke Ueno’s “Beautiful Noise” and wrote a great review of the work on their website. “Beautiful Noise” is on view till June 13. Don’t miss the work of Ariel DeAndrea in our project room as well.
“Ueno’s main concept, “Love, Space and Positive Energy,” feels revived in all aspects of his exhibition; an alternate reality characterized by the bold “noise” of popular culture where medium is as important as the message.” – Caro for Hi-Fructose
