In­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion

Novem­ber 16 through Jan­uary 12, 2019, the in­ter­na­tional group ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled Bloom—cu­rated by _Lo Col­lec­tive artists and own­ers Emilio Villalba, Justin Hopkins and Daniel Segrove and pre­sented in part­ner­ship with Booth Gallery—will be on view at the lat­ter’s New York City lo­ca­tion. The show fea­tures the art­work of the three _Lo own­ers as well as Phil Hale, Camilla Tay­lor, Daniel Mar­tin, Zoey Frank, Karim Hamid, Grant Yoshino, Sarah Sitkin, Felipe Alonso and Sid Watters. They are at var­i­ous stages in their ca­reers, but they “all have a high level of com­mit­ment to qual­ity. The show aspires to bring a col­lec­tion of work that will stir the psy­che of the viewer to cre­ate a fer­vor of in­spi­ra­tion.”

Among Segrove’s mixed me­dia pieces is the work Philo­pho­bia, which gets its ti­tle from the word that means “fear of fall­ing in love.” The po­si­tion of the fig­ure hunched over as two arms—seem­ingly com­ing from nowhere—wrap about its body is em­blem­atic of this no­tion. There is a sense of de­tach­ment, of re­sis­tance.

Two por­traits by Mar­tin high­light his process of de­form­ing and re-cre­at­ing. Ac­cord­ing to his web­site, Mar­tin “casts his sculp­tural paint­ings by the mas­tery of chance and mis­takes. His col­lage por­traits breathe a uni­verse of undis­cov­ered hu­man ar­ti­facts and trans­mu­ta­tional struc­tures.” This is ev­i­dent in his por­trait Sketch XI, which through a swirling col­lage is ab­stract, yet rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the hu­man head.

Frank’s paint­ing Stu­dio De­bris is from her se­ries of still lifes and in­te­rior spa­ces, which of­ten de­pict ar­eas around her own home that pro­vide a glimpse into her per­sonal life.

“Bloom is an ex­hi­bi­tion I have been look­ing for­ward to all year; it in­cludes many artists of which I was al­ready fa­mil­iar with and oth­ers I have wanted to work with for years,” says Michael J. Ru­ple, di­rec­tor of Booth Gallery. “I am ex­cited to fi­nally have the op­por­tu­nity to col­lab­o­rate with each one of them.”
