Birds of Pray

Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present Birds of Pray the latest exhibition of paintings, drawings and soft sculpture by FriendsWithYou artists Arturo Sandoval III and Sam Borkson. The exhibition is an exploration of the ‘flora and fauna’ of a whimsical world -- where a new classification of mystical creatures and spirits exist just beyond our rational everyday. The duo’s artistic approach and sensibility, which often seem closer to that of visionary poet, is startlingly fresh and idiosyncratic: with mythical images that are possessed by an extraordinary charm, wit, and imagination. Focusing on seemingly fantastic aspects of an apparitional landscape - e.g. spirits, hooded talisman, sacred creatures – FriendsWithYou privilege and celebrate the phenomenal, the hybrid, the marginal, and the invisible. For this gallery exhibition FriendsWithYou will present a discrete group of paintings produced over the past year, along with a multi-piece installation featuring wood sculpture, giant snakes, plush skins, and other magical deities.

'Hands On' is a straight up a black, white & grey showcase. New Paintings will focus on solid line-works, detailed illustrations & the artists ability to convey industrial strength & sleek subtleness in pure line strokes.Kofie's work explores the many possibilities of illustration & painting. Using mechanical like line-works, a heavy earth-tone pallet, & sure-handed organic fragmentary structures, Kofie creates a layered, architecturally inspired world outside of reality. Common elements such as Hands & Jeeps are incorporated into works to to represent a versatile hands-on approach. Circular forms stretch, expand & disparate elements exist in an obscurely perfect harmony on tilt. His foundation in the early 90’s West Los Angeles Graffiti Arts Movement & a long standing fascination for Modern/Futurist forms set the self taught artists unique style into motion. Kofie's multifaceted synthesis of works present a contemporary aesthetic different from the more traditional foundations of the American graffiti arts movement.
