Venice’s fresh-to-edgy C.A.V.E Gallery opens a four person show with self-taught artist and habitual doodler Craww whose work is populated with skulls, crows and melancholic, big-handed girls; the Muneera Gerald‘s inky, moody portraits of modern malaise. Young Chun‘s colorful and dystopian portraits of disturbingly pretty (and pretty disturbed!) young women are fueled by his experienced as a minister’s son in South Korea, and his years spent working in hospitals in the LA area, faced with life and death situations. Rounding out the show, JoKa, whose hyper-pointillism paintings (he uses toothpicks as he sole means of paint application) with collaged layers are mind-blowing. Watch for Keith Dugas (KrossD)’s interview with JoKa coming soon on CARTWHEEL.
The show opens March 9, with an artists’ reception from 7pm to 11pm, and runs through April 1st.
