Matt Leines

Painter. Drawer. Thinker. Sleeper. Pro-wrestling enthusiast.

“I developed a lazy eye when I was young and because of that I see things differently.”

—Matt Leines

From the dawn of this century, Matt Leines has produced a steady flow of fine art to delight and confound viewers — drawings and paintings rich in color and detail — exploring the kaleidoscope of memory and outer zones of imagination. He possesses a workmanlike approach to symbolism and surrealism, the poet’s ability to realize longed-for images, and a passion for theatrical sports. The world moves in patterns, faces unfixed, lines dancing across pyramid walls. Perspective is subservient to a unique modernist iconography; his characters operate in a kind of abstract epic or post-Columbian codex that blurs pure myth and daily life.

“Matt is mapping the collective art of a non-existent tribe in a no-man’s-land far away. Exotic and invincible.”

—Gary Panter

Observant, vibrant, obsessively intricate and rippling with gnostic strength and humor, Leines’ output reflects the 80's pop culture of his New Jersey youth, highlights from the modern art playbook and a global range of graphic influences. He is master of lines and balance — the kind of kid born with a crayon gripped in his hand — who developed his talent through practice and study. This genius for drawing is supported by a genuine sympathy for the mysteries of existing and an eye that ranges far and wide, past, present and future, real and unreal.

“U r such a good artist.”

—Jerry Saltz (@mattleines on Instagram)

Leines lives and works in Brooklyn. He passed through other East Coast visual centers, earned a degree from Rhode Island School of Design and spent a few years at Space 1026 in Philadelphia. Free News Projects published a retrospective monograph in 2008 titled You Are Forgiven. His work has been shown at Deitch Projects, Clementine Gallery, and The Hole in New York; Roberts and Tilton and New Image Art in Los Angeles; as well as international venues in Sweden, Italy, Spain, Greece and Japan.

Hisham Akira Bharoocha - November 26th through January 1st

Hisham Akira Bharoocha is an artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He concentrates on creating music, visual art, and photography. 
Bharoocha has had solo exhibitions of his work at D'Amelio Terras gallery in New York, as well as Vleeshal, a state run space in The Netherlands.  He has been in numerous group exhibitions at galleries such as Deitch Projects, John Connelly Presents, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. 
His work has been published in Art Forum, V, i-D, Flaunt, Tokion, Blend to name a few. 
Hisham's newest works deal with the melting together of images that happens in the mind when one is meditating, dreaming, day dreaming, or going about their daily lives.  Bharoocha likes to observe how his visions and feelings all blend together to create a massive medley of images and vibrations that one can feel in the body.  Hisham tries to create works that show the absurdity and logic of how each mind works, what kind of relationships it creates between experiences and images that we absorb through our senses moment by moment.  
Hisham is well known in the underground music scene for being a founding member of the bands Lightning Bolt and Black Dice. After leaving Black Dice, he created Soft Circle, a solo project that allowed him a more personal exploration of his own musical interests.  His first solo album, 'Full Bloom' was released in January 2007 on Eastern Developments.  Hisham has recently collaborated with the artist Doug Aitken on a sound piece which was performed at the MoMA, as well as musicians such as the experimental rock group Boredoms.  Bharoocha is currently working on a new Soft Circle album due to be released sometime in 2009.
Hisham is one of the New York underground community's creative leaders, continually trying to bring together the visual art, music, and fashion communities for collaboration. Bharoocha was the musical director for the now legendary 77 BOADRUM performance, a musical composition composed by the experimental Japanese music group Boredoms, which involved 77 drummers playing 77 drum kits in a Spiral formation at Empire Fulton Ferry State Park on July 7th, 2007. Bharoocha was also the music director for this year's 88 Boadrum performance which happened on August 8th, 2008 with 88 drummers playing with Boredoms in Los Angeles, as well as 88 drummers playing with Gang Gang Dance in New York City on the same day.

Eli Epstein (Photocall) "Together" Pillow - November 19th through December 2nd

<meta charset="utf-8" />

“We drove all night in the rain to get there, arrived in a mob, and were suddenly knee-deep in mud.  We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.  Overnight, Woodstock became the 3rd largest city in the state and what really struck me was the unexpected invention of creativity and togetherness.”  - Andy Epstein

When you know that your father and your uncle were at Woodstock, their experiences become family legend. But where were the pictures? They had to exist. Two years ago they turned up: faint pencil label on a business envelope in the bottom of a box of college papers: "Woodstock".  A roll of negatives. My dad and I flipped out. My friend Anna McCraney (AnnabelleNYC) asked me to collaborate on a product for Christmas 2015, and, although I am in music - I produce dance records (PHOTOCALL MUSIC), I am a lifelong design nerd, obsessed with creative interiors.

The Woodstock images would be perfect for large pillows. We worked together. Each negative was professionally drum scanned for maximum resolution, beautifully printed on 24" cotton pillows. Not Hendrix, not Joplin, but people just being "Together." Woodstock 1969.

Alex Dodge - November 12th through November 26th

<meta charset="utf-8" />
Dodge’s work has often explored the relationship between technology and human experience in varying degrees of subtlety. In a series of works depicting underwater swimming pools he contrasts what he describes as a quantifiable or digital representation of reality in the form of the pixel-like tiled surface of the pool’s structure against the chaotic and seemingly immeasurable gestural reflections in the water’s surface above.
In other works like The Adonis Plant, based on the work by Katsushika Hokusai of the same title Dodge created 3D models of human-android hybrids, using them to create a two-dimensional composition following that of Hokusai’s famous ukiyo-e Shunga. In Dodge’s version of the two figure’s passionate embrace, the phallus has been replaced by a convoluted bundle of cables and wires and the semi-transparent skin of both figures is shown eroding in areas exposing the mechanized skeletons below.
Much of Dodge’s work makes use of digital processes such as 3D modeling and computer generated imagery though often physically mediated through historical art making techniques and processes.
Dodge’s second solo show at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery in 2008, which was reviewed in ArtForum, included paintings inspired by the video game Katamari Damacy created by artist and game designer Keita Takahashi. Dodge and Takahashi would later become friends and work together on a project titled Souponuts.
Dodge began publishing his print editions in 2005 with Forth Estate, a fine art print publisher in Brooklyn, NY. His prints had an early success being acquired by many private collections and museums.
Alex Dodge lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. His works are included in a number of public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and The New York Public Library.

Alix Brown - November 4th through November 18th

DJ, musician, stylist and fashion muse Alix Brown was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia by music-loving parents.  After a 4-year stint playing in a band, touring the world and running Shattered Records with Jay Reatard in Memphis, Tennessee, Alix decided to make the move to NYC.  She immediately got a job at Academy Records in Brooklyn and began to play bass in Golden Triangle. The band gained great success, winning Battle of the Bands at SXSW, which led to being signed by the Sub Pop subsidiary, Hardly Art, and the band landing a song in an international BMW commercial.  Just like many bands on top of the world, however, they soon dissolved.  Having worked in vintage clothing and record stores growing up, Alix realized she had amassed thousands of records, a vast digital music library, and quite the jaw-dropping wardrobe. With such an impressive arsenal of pop culture artifacts, she began to pursue her career as a DJ and a stylist.  Since then, she has landed increasingly more high profile DJ gigs at Don Hills, Kenmare, Paul’s Baby Grand, The Standard Hotel NYC, weekly parties with co-DJ Tennessee Thomas at Soho Grand, TriBeCa Grand, Hotel Chantelle; and parties for the likes of Jill Stuart, Ralph Lauren, Helmut Lang, Pamela Love, and many more. 
With her carefully developed taste for vintage sounds and style, it’s no wonder that she now wields an encyclopedic knowledge of rock n roll and fashion history.

Leif Low-Beer - October 30th through November 13th

<meta charset="utf-8" />
Leif Low-beer was educated in Canada and New York and currently works in Brooklyn. His sculptures and drawings have been shown at galleries in the United States and Canada, including a solo shows at Wild Project and Beginnings Gallery in New York, and a large-scale installation at Socrates Sculpture Park. In the last few years he had solo exhibitions at Okay Mountain in Austin and at Buffalo Arts Center in Buffalo.

Leif Parsons currently lives in Brooklyn and is working as an illustrator and artist. He has been shown on both coasts and has been published in many magazines and newspapers. Parsons has recently been focused on trying to find the line between looseness and tightness, between deliberate idea and spontaneous expression, between observation and imagination. He is also curious how many times he can draw himself naked and get it published in the New York Times (3 so far).

Lousie Sheldon - October 22nd through November 4th

The work of Louise Sheldon pokes holes into memories of our daily surroundings. Her subject matter becomes a conduit for apparitions, stolen moments for the artist to inject the sublime. The viewer is left questioning whether what is known actually exists.  Louise admits confusing dream states with recollections, as seen in a watercolor depicting a boy in a bathtub.  Channeling the memory of a scene from The Lost Boys movie, the painting  “Tim”, at first glance seems like a painting of a young man bathing.  On closer inspection, we are left wondering whether the ageless boy and his dog are actually even there or whether they are phantoms, as their shadows suggest.  Sheldon’s work is also preoccupied with the daily reminders that nudge us as consumers, in the form of store fronts, packaging, or displays.  She beautifully animates the everyday ordinary so that a stack of VHS tapes dances across your vision, Twix bars ethereally swim by,  and a varied array of beer for sale is like a constellation of sparkling glass winking back at you.  Louise Sheldon was born in Providence, Rhode Island and now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.  Her work is currently on view at Safe Gallery in Brooklyn in a two person exhibition with J Penry.

Glen Baldridge - October 15th through October 28th

<meta charset="utf-8" />
The severe and dark themes that Brooklyn-based artist Glen Baldridge engages wit —for instance, morbidity, drug culture, and the angst and confusion of American youth—is offset by the artist’s incorporation of various humorous elements. Though Baldridge is noted for his printmaking abilities, he also works in sculpture, drawing, and appropriation art. Regarding the latter, Baldridge has explored the intersection of consumerism and mortality by employing such gloomy components as found coffin catalogues, losing lottery tickets, and knife infomercials.

Since earning his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1999, Baldridge has exhibited his work extensively in galleries throughout the United States. His pieces are also included in the collections of notable institutions such as New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Museum of Modern Art.

Isaac Lin - October 1st through October 14th

Isaac Tin Wei Lin is an artist based in Philadelphia. He explores the realm where representation and buzzing abstraction meet. His surfaces are often densely covered in calligraphic, brushed and hand-drawn patterns that express both the logic and complexity of written language. Cartoon figures, often in the form of cats and dogs, make appearances, sometimes as larger-than-life-size cut-outs covered in pattern themselves. Working across painting, screenprinting, collage and installation, Lin also collaborates with other artists and photographers in creating hybrid works. He is an alumnus of Philadelphia's artist collective Space 1026.

Justin Giunta - September 17th through September 30th

Justin Giunta is an artist that traverses many media, from painting to fashion and interior and industrial design.  Guinta brings to his art an inventive sensibility that sits on the continuum of fine art and commercial design.  
Justin was awarded the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent at the 2009 CFDA awards, following three consecutive nominations.  Justin's influence on contemporary accessories design earned him the Ecco-Domani Prize for Accessory Design in 2008 as well as a finalist position in the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund.
Sourcing vintage materials from secondary markets, Giunta selects his materials for their intrinsic qualities to create a richly toned palette for his creations.  HIs work plays with the baroque philosophy that more is more (and who doesn't love that)!  Each piece of his jewelry line, Subversive, is handcrafted, always playing with the idea with the idea of modern deconstruction.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Giunta has studied at several art institutions including Pratt Institute and the Gerrit Reitveld Academie in Amsterdam.  He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University and a fellowship from Yale University.  Justin lives and works in New York City.

Joseph Hart - September 3rd through September 16th

Joseph Hart’s work is an amalgamation of premeditated and spontaneous mark making, instinct and restraint, effort and error. Utilizing drawing, painting and cut-paper collage, his work is structured around cursory gestures: errant dashes, quick lines, scrawls, swoops and zigzags. This set of preliminary and exploratory maneuvers are then built upon, reconfigured or impulsively edited out until a composition begins to emerge. In his paper pieces, smaller scale drawings are often grafted directly into larger works, interrupting the initial picture plane while also reactivating it. The results are abrupt yet manage to achieve a bizarre and unexpected elegance.

Adaptation and balance play critical roles in Hart’s practice. Direction and orientation (vertical, horizontal, or other) typically remain in flux throughout his process, facilitating discovery through attempt. Moments of aesthetic beauty are evened by calculated blemish and visual apathy. Areas of careful consideration and casual awkwardness are forced to co-exist. Through this democratization of components and ideas, Hart emphasizes the relationships between turmoil, tension and harmony.

Originally from New Hampshire, Joseph Hart is a Brooklyn, New York-based artist. His work has recently been exhibited at Galleri Jacob Bjorn in Denmark, Dieu Donné and Halsey Mckay Gallery in New York, among others. Hart’s work has also been included in notable shows at the Frans Masareel Center in Belgium, Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Santa Monica Museum of Art. He has been featured in periodicals such as FlashArt, Modern Painters, Huffington Post and The New York Times. His work is in the public collections of The Rhode Island School of Design, Davis Museum at Wellesley College and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Hart holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. 


Andrew Jeffrey Wright, an award winning animator and zine maker, is a founding and current member of Space 1026 art collective in Philadelphia.

His works, whether it be a ridiculous surrealist comic, a high energy abstract painting, or a Bauhaus inspired dance video, posses a vibrant conceptual and comedic commonality.
Wright's images have appeared in publications like McSweeney’s, Kramers Ergot, and on the cover of Tokion’s Revisionaries book.  He is a noted muralist, and has directed videos for artists like Dan Deacon.  He has had solo exhibitions in NYC, LA, San Francisco, Tokyo, and Philadelphia, and is universally respected by his peers.  Not to mention, he is hilarious.

Ben Blatt lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and Amherst, MA. He was born in Denver, Colorado and received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2001. He has exhibited in New York at White Columns, Half Gallery, Halsey Mckay, Phillips Contemporary, and Eric Firestone, at the John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, WI, and at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, Denmark. Blatt is an adjunct professor at the Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.  
Ben Blatt employs the patient medium of watercolor and gouache to depict intricate renderings of struggles between natural and man-made forms.  Blatt adapts the vast trove of art history to the hyper-speed of today. Using the precise detail of an engraver or miniaturist, his depictions of worlds within worlds are embedded with themes of mortality, regeneration, and technological artifice. The imagery examines the conflict between the western desire to master and control the natural world, with the eastern ideal of harmonious coexistence with nature. His virtuosic line-quality often depicts a botanical world run amok, as pools of color bleed through the hard lines of structure and form, pushing his microcosms to new chromatic extremes.


From Chardin's Omega Point theory to Pollock's gestural abstraction, the influences of Ryan Wallace's (b. 1977, New York) interdisciplinary work span radically diverse concerns.  Related primarily through existentialist core principles, the miscellany of ideas presented in Wallace's work manifest the complexities of the metaphysical as well as the clarity of total consciousness.  Wallace taps into the visceral nature of Suprematism, while simultaneously conjuring the bodily experience of Light and Space, a marriage between the cognitive and intuitive that occupies a dimensional, non-linear space.  Shredded tape, vinyl screens, wax, and other discarded studio materials converge upon a single plane as Wallace reconstitutes detritus from previous works and forges new abstractions. Through this technique, he visually articulates the most alluring notions of evolution - manipulating the physical and metaphorical layers inherent to our perception.
For those of you who didn't understand any or all of that, let us sum it up for you.  Ryan is basically better than most people.  Besides being wry, sarcastic, and bitingly observational, he is sentimental at the core, although he will hate being described that way.  If you meet Ryan, you will immediately know that you are meeting someone who gets it, whatever "it" is.  For us, his work speaks to how we all want to be, how we change and evolve through our time here, how there are layers and textures to who we are, and how we all try to become better versions of ourselves in whatever way we can, without totally letting go of where we came from.  The beauty and thoughtfulness of Ryan's work is apparent to anyone with eyeballs, but it is his ability to speak to the vastness of what our world is, and simultaneously create work that is personal, raw, flawed, vulnerable, and human, that connects us to it, and subsequently makes us want to wrap ourselves in it.
Wallace received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design (RI). He was the 2011 recipient of the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and has had solo exhibitions in Copenhagen, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. He has also shown work at the Frans Masereel Center (Belgium), Torrance Art Museum (CA), Katzen Arts Center (D.C.), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (CA), and numerous other venues around the world. His work is featured in the public collections of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (D.C.), the Museum of Modern Art (NY), the Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco (CA), and the Cleveland Clinic (OH), among others. Wallace is also represented by Cooper Cole Gallery (Toronto), Marianne Friis Gallery (Copenhagen), and Susan Inglett Gallery (New York). The artist lives and works in New York and is the co-owner of Halsey-McKay Gallery in East Hampton, New York.
