We wanted to highlight the online feature of artist James Bullough that is up on Hi-Fructose. James’s was apart of our April ‘Gumbo‘ show and the above pictured mural is currently on view at the Long Beach Museum of Art for Vitality and Verve. We are excited to be working with James and to continue to share his work with an international audience. Keep an eye out for new work by James Bullough in our upcoming London exhibition LAX/LHR and later this year for Spoke Art Miami during Art Basel.
Hi-Fructose recently visited the studio of Philadelphia based artist Jeremy Hush as he finishes up his new works for ‘At A Loss For Words’ opening on September 29th in the project room at Thinkspace.
“Working in ball-point pen and an autumnal color palette, the new works explore themes of decay and rebirth, as his strange beauties double as vessels as birds and other wildlife find homes between their rib and jaw bones. Tangles of overgrown natural elements converge with rusted skeleton keys and clockwork parts, an interesting marriage between nature and machinery that provides a nuanced back drop for his ghostly figures.” – Hi-Fructose
“An avid reader of philosophy, San Francisco-based painter Adam Caldwell is currently wrapping up a new series of paintings that visualize disaster. Though they depict literal explosions, war scenes and other maladies, the works allude to disasters of the metaphysical sort. For this series, Caldwell took an interest in Western culture’s conception of the mind and the body as two separate entities, painting the interiors of mental hospitals with a pastiche of pop culture artifacts and historical tidbits. The violent, busy works point to what the artist believes is a chaos that results from the artificial partition our culture creates in the human identity.” – HiFructose.com
“‘Nowhere’ bears the signature technique of Andrews’ oeuvre and the work marvelously blends innocent creatures such as a long eared hare and thin adolescents with a lurking creepiness apparent in the details.”– HiFructose
