At Artnet Gallery Network, our goal is to discover new artists every month. We sift through the thousands of talented artists on our site to select a few that we find particularly intriguing right now.
From the many new exhibitions opening in November, we’ve selected five artists whose work we think you should know about, exhibited in spaces from Mexico City to Milan. Check them out below.
Pam Evelyn in “Show of a wreckâAt Peres Projects, Berlin
Pam Evelyn’s paintings are filled with phantom shapes that make you stare, then stare again. Something, maybe – or maybe not – has just emerged out of the corner of my eye. The images are abstract, in that Evelyn’s gestures do not create any final cohesive figure, but when you look closely you discern the shape of a table lamp, or perhaps a bent leg. The British artist creates his works without premeditation; she is interested in the process of revealing what might be. The colorful and often joyful paintings offer clues, but leave the viewer’s mind to wonder about the possibilities.
Tohko Izumi in “SignalsÂ»At Micheko Galerie, Munich
Rising artist Toko Izumi practices a traditional Japanese painting style called Nihonga. The term was defined during the Meiji period (1868-1912) as a way to distinguish itself from Western oil painting and is characterized by the use of Japanese paper or silk with natural materials such as mineral pigments. , sumi ink and glue.
Although rooted in these traditional techniques, Izumi the works have a striking depth created when painting, peeling off and scratching its surfaces. Its motifs are heavily influenced by designs, textiles and prints, and place this historic style in an evocative and contemporary context.
Maisie Cousins ââin “Garden, Cocina, Basura, Cuerpo” To Hilario Galguera Gallery, Mexico
London-based photographer Maisie Cousins ââpresents her stunning shots for the first time in Latin America. Both beautiful and grotesque, Cousins’ hyper-saturated glossy images often feature snapshots of the body, food and waste, and the exhibition title translates to “Garden, Kitchen, Garbage, Body “. His photographs visually merge the forms of these forever intertwined ideas, pushing the boundaries of seduction and repulsion.
Libby schoettle at West Chelsea Contemporary, New York
Libby Schoettle is best known by her street art alter-ego Phoebe New York, who has been sticking her bobblehead female figures in Lower Manhattan for years. In her solo exhibition at West Chelsea Contemporary, Schoettle presents her unique collages, each featuring a lone woman strutting against a background in shades of black, red, blue and white.
Louisa ClÃ©ment, “CouterpainâAt Cassina Projects, Milan
First solo exhibition of German artist Louisa Clement, “Against pain,âTo Cassina projects in Milan, transforms the gallery into a strange and dystopian world, through photography, video and installation. A work called Representing is an avatar of the artist, an artificial clone designed to simulate both the body and the personality of Clement, which the artist created through a collaboration with scientists and a sex doll maker. With its disappearing division between the real and the artificial, the exhibition explores a strange and seemingly inevitable future marked by transhumanism.
