Jack Pierson & Elliott Puckette: Collage

We have already been on art overload this week, and The Armory Show only started yesterday!  First, we had the NothingEverTouches exhibit at The Standard, New York featuring Olympia Scarry and other amazing female artists.  Also at the hotel, you can visit The Shop and Le Bain to check out Ryan McGinness’ glow-in-the-dark installation entitled “Women: The Blacklight Paintings”.  So amazing.

And it doesn’t stop there, as you probably already guessed.  Last night, three of my good friends came together to bring you a show about one of my most favorite things in the world……COLLAGE!  Yup.  You heard me.  I love collage, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.

James Danziger of Danziger Projects has brought together Jack Pierson, famed for his word art, and Elliott Puckette, whose line art has skyrocketed her to art stardom.  Now, these two artists have joined forces to show together, highlighting their work in collage.  Pierson explores the emotional undercurrents of everyday life but cutting up his c-prints and reassembling them in abstract shapes bursting with unexpected color.  Puckette utilized her old paintings, ripping them up and rearranging them to create new deconstructed works.  

With both styles complementing each other in a dynamic showing, this exhibition is definitely not to be missed.

Jack Pierson & Elliot Puckette: Collage will be on view through April 30 at Danziger Projects, 534 West 24th Street, 212-629-6778.
