Four emerging artists represented by Mark Moore Gallery of Culver City, California, are showing work at Joshua Liner Gallery in a show titled Go East, with an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. today. Chad Person, Feodor Voronov, Kenichi Yokono and Yoram Wolberger present the first installment in a bicoastal exchange between the two galleries. The show will be on exhibit during the New York editions of the 2012 Frieze and PULSE art fairs (May 3-7). In July 2012, the “gallery swap” will be completed with Go West at Mark Moore Gallery with a presentation of work by Joshua Liner Gallery artists David Ellis and Kris Kuksi in Los Angeles.
Chad Person presents works from his Taxcut series of collages of cut-up U.S. currency depicting images such as military equipment to point to the pervasive influence of financial interests on government power. Russian-born Los Angeles-based abstract painter Feodor Voronov uses repetitive shapes and lines to create complex prismatic bursts, resulting in colorful canvases. Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono creates pop imagery using the traditional craft of woodblock carving, often exhibiting high-contrast woodblock templates to highlight his handiwork. Israel-born San Francisco-based artist Yoram Wolberger presents Petting Zoo, a selection of white, plaster-cast animal forms which play on childhood conventions and clichés.
Go East runs through May 19 at Joshua Liner Gallery, 548 W. 28th St., 3rd Floor, New York, NY.
