Featured Artist: Anne Bachelier
We discovered Anne Bachelier’s luscious art at the AFA Gallery while strolling Royal Street in New Orleans. This is a fun street to while away some time, for our previous feature on the Royal Street Galleries, click here.
While Eclectix was visiting New Orleans recently, we spent a quiet afternoon strolling through Lafayette cemetery (No.1) in the Garden District. There isn’t a better way to experience the Cities of the Dead and invoke ghosts and vampires than enjoying ye olde tombstones and histories. Time to get your Anne Rice on…
Exhibition News: Brett Amory, Twenty-four In London
Here at Eclectix, we love Brett Amory’s painterly urban episodes and are so excited to get word of his new show – Twenty-Four In London. It opens tonight in London at the Lazarides Rathbone Gallery and runs through Aril 13th, 2014. When we laid eyes on these new works we had to share, so enjoy them via computer if you can’t make it to London.
Beth Robinson, Eclectix Interview
Beth Robinson creates fine art doll sculptures, one-of-a-kind characters with a penchant for the melancholy. Versatile in their witty attitudes – they can be monstrous, quirky, dandy, ghostly, lovely and distorted – but always weirdly wonderful. Dressed in vintage and found materials, made from polymer clay and sometimes real human hair. Full of gesture and energy, each creation has a genuine history of it’s own – whether it be from a dark secret lair, a Victorian ballroom or inside your own head.
Bex Freund has a solo exhibition coming up, for one week only in SF, that is not to be missed. The Bottled Nova Must Feed Still show opens at Alter Space on March 1st and runs through March 8th. We were floored and facinated by the surreal strength of her paintings – their carnivore vision, disturbing inflections and raw emotive expression.
