Husbands “Dream”

Our good friends at Sezio just shared this incredible video for the Husbands Dream single off their debut EP. Altough the typography appears to be a simple animation, it’s actually built in the studio as lighted cabinets that are  programed and synced with the music. The video was recorded live in studio. Simply awesome. Watch the video here.

Subtext is kicking off our 2013 season with up and coming local talent, Kristina Micotti.

We hope you can join us for our first show of the year!

Simple Ways

Simple Ways
New Works by Joshua Krause
November 30th – December 28th, 2012
Opening Reception with the Artist: Friday, November 30th, 6-10pm 

“An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way.” - Charles Bukowski

In one way or another, we all strive to make things a little simpler. In Joshua Krause’s case, it started with diet and a martial arts training regimen, and ended in a shift in attitude that eventually spawned, Simple Ways. In his lastest body of work, Krause has been inspired by his new approach on life, and by “getting out of his own way,” he has achieved a purity that he hasn’t been able to capture in his previous exhibitions. Drawing inspiration from disparate places and non traditional materials, these primal influences have gotten him in better touch with himself, which ultimately allowed him to focus his thoughts and find some order in this wild, wild world.

Audrey Kawasaki

It’s nice to see the evolution of Audrey Kawasaki’s work. Check out her latest show, Midnight Reverie, at Jonathan Levine Gallery.
