Lola Montes Schnabel Love Before Intimacy at The Hole

Lola Montes Schnabel
Love Before Intimacy

December 16th, 2011 - February 4th, 2012
OPENING December 16th, 6-9PM

The Hole is proud to present a new group of paintings by Lola Montes Schnabel. These five works, created over the period of the last year, comprise a suite of allegorically suggestive figurative paintings that use a shared five-color palette to great effect.

Each painting depicts an episode in a narrative of androgenous youth encountering each other on a remote Greek island. They depict a time of love before sexuality, with the nude youths, occasionally shrouded in sheepskins, romping playfully about the teal and tan landscape. In one work, a youth drags a dead albatross across an expanse, in another, the last in the series, the two figures come together in ecstasy, forever changing their innocent, idyllic world.

The works each begin with bleached linen and rabbit glue. Lola then engaged the surface with a five color palette reminiscent of the restrictive color schemes of the Spanish Romantics or the lucky five-color Ko-Kutani school of Japanese ceramics. Not just paint but asphalt, plaster weld, and copper plating solution are part of her toolbox, making the painting not just an assorment of emmoliated pigments, but the site of a rich alchemical reaction as the plasterweld slowly dries clear and the copper plating oxidizes and chrystallizes.

Magic, luck and intuition fill these large, confident, and very feminine tableaux. Lola graduated from Cooper Union in 2008 and has been in numerous group shows since, with both her paintings, her iodine works on paper, photographs and video work. This is her first solo painting exhibition in the United States.

Pictures from last week H and M Versace collection.

Whiling we waited in line to get into the store we saw a few camels that
walked by 52nd Street.
The men's area on the 2nd floor.
People buying loads of men's clothing and accessories.
Employees undressed mannuquins for shoppers that
acted like it was Black Friday.

This woman and her mom shopped the women's room that morning.
She must have been waiting at the store almost 24 hours. Yikes!!
I wonder if any of these items went on ebay???????
Unless she was buying for all her friends plus their friends.
The women's dept.
Are appointment to shop for the women's dept wasn't until
11:45 am eventhrough we were there at 5:20am.

Just wish that H&M advertise that the biggest size would be 10.
They cleaned up every 15 mins to make the room look spotless.

I can't wait for the H&M Marni 's Consuelo Castiglioni collection
that will come out next year.

Lace Motorcycle Jacket

I love everything Christopher Kane, especially this lace moto jacket he just did - very similar to the neon green one that sold at Opening Ceremony.

If you can't afford the CK $1200 + price tag (avail at Neiman Marcus), you can opt for this one from H&M (only 34.95).

DAZE - The Grey Scale | HowNosm – Achtung! Public opening this weekend October 15, 2011 | 8-11pm

DAZE - The Grey Scale

The Grey Scale Paintings
Walking along what seemed like an endless series of tracks my senses became accustomed to the dark labrythiniun tunnels that lay below. My eyes adjusted to the darkness and my ears acclimated to the endless series of subtle noises. Dripping water, the squeal of rats chasing each other, the release of train compressors, the clicking of the tracks as a train approached the next station, then, all at once, the roar of a passing train echoing through the tunnel, and then, silence.
This new series of works entitled “The Grey Scale” is an exploration into the context in which many of my subway works were created. Walls layered with years of tags and signatures, gravel floors covered in dust and debris, flickering lights, and the gleam of sharp steel tracks piercing the darkness are all portrayed in the context of subterranean tunnels that lead to nowhere. This is a world in which we are encouraged to stay away from the light at the end of the tunnel. These new works call to mind some of the layered complexity of Rauschenberg’s early black paintings or perhaps the subtlety of Cy Twombly’s blackboard paintings. Others yet clearly show references to the gritty urban landscapes of the New York ash can school: John Sloan, William Glackens, Robert Henri, and later most of all, Reginald Marsh. These artists chose, as I do, the streets as their primary source of inspiration. The paintings are a kind of hybrid that draws from the vocabulary of both the graffiti world and urban realism.

The staid cleanliness of a single-colored surface is a disturbing testament to society’s uniformity and the pressure society places on one to conform. Such a surface, standing alone and dull, cries out for attention. Answering its call ‹ and recognizing its potential ‹ HowNosm bless the surface with confidence, courage, action, vitality and just a touch of the world’s inevitable darkness and death, transforming it into a truer reflection of both the world around it and their own varied lives. ACHTUNG! is a collection of pieces that resemble broken mirrors, each filled with messages that are, by turns, sharp-edged, blurred and fast-changing. They serve as a reminder of the need to, and the dangers of failing to, walk alertly through this life.

Thursday October 13th.
Suede Studios

Suede will be turned into the vibrant streets of urban America. On display, inspired by the thriving street art scene, will be artifacts such as newspaper machines, fire hydrants and stoplight signs.

From his OBEY sticker campaign to Barack Obama’s Hope poster; Shepard Fairey has proved himself as a maverick in the street art world. What started for Fairey as a mere sticker has since evolved into an international campaign creating further popularization to the street art culture. His driving motivation is seen worldwide through murals and museums, and in this own words, “the real message behind all my work is ‘question everything’.”

Los Angeles based artist Risk, has unmistakable artist ability. His unique graffiti style has gained notoriety and paved a new way for the street art movement. Risk is a graffiti originator and has successfully crossed over to a gallery artist as well. His most current project is with Heal The Bay, he is working on a mural that covers an entire two story house.

Also on exhibition are Chad Muska, Bam Margera, Steve Caballero, Ray Flores, Lance Mountain and Steve Olson; all legends in the skateboarding community with prolific skateboarding careers. They have joined the ranks of the Sk8Art St. scene to create original pieces of artwork.

Sk8Art St. will showcase these artists’ talents in a unique and visually stimulating way. Come be inspired and enjoy an innovative atmosphere at Suede Studios, where any patron of art would find themselves at home.
