Keith Edmier's solo exhibition at Friedrich Petzel explores strength and fragility. Edmier draws inspiration from a broad timeline including Roman architecture and 19th century American design. Interwoven with these more bold constructions are allusions to the roles of notable women ranging from First Ladies to Grace Kelly. Regeneratrix is on view through June 20th 2015 at Petzel Gallery, 456 West 18th Street, New York.
David Shrigley's paintings and drawings capture a world of child-like wonderment. For his solo exhibition at Anton Kern, the artist relies of broad lines and bold colors to enhance the snippets of text which fall somewhere between enlightened and absurd. Additionally, the dense grid installation format works well to support Shirgley's interest in a variety of subjects related to modern existence. On view through May 23rd 2015 at Anton Kern, 532 West 20th Street, New York.
