Eric White's new works are a visual force to be reckoned with...

Superhuman painting talent ERIC WHITE brought his unique brand of cinematic surrealism to the sunny climes of Barcelona where his solo show of new work “Eclecticismo: Virtud o Defecto?” (Eclecticism: Virtue or Defect?) opened alongside a concurrent exhibition by art buddy Gomez Bueno at IGUAPOP GALLERY last weekend. Consisting of seven brand new 24" x 24" paintings (save for a lone 36" x 36" exception) and two recent large scale pieces, the majority of the show is divided between White's recent "windows" theme and his unique "photo negative" painting effect whereby the Michigan native painstakingly renders portraits in a film negative colorshceme that translate to perfectly accurate color versions when viewed as inversions. The unusual imagery is a true testament to Mr White's rendering prowess considering that the accuracy of his color positives is never tested until the last brushstroke on the negative has been laid (see below for an example).

Gomez Bueno channels the spirit of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth...

Spanish born LA transplant GOMEZ BUENO is wild card artist extraordinaire whose Pop Cultural visual musings never cease to amuse. For his newest solo show, “Películas y Musicales de los Estudios Gómez Bueno” (Movies and Musicales from the Gomez Bueno Studios), at Barcelona’s IGUAPOP GALLERY finds the artist reimagining some familiar entertainment world iconography in his own inimitable style via a lengthy series of oil paintings and pen on paper drawings taking the piss out of everyone from Ed “Big Daddy” Roth to Johnny Ramone. Running alongside a concurrent exhibition by art buddy Eric White, the show is a testament to Bueno’s atypical thought process that one can only begin to understand through careful, up-close-and-personal study of the man/maniac himself.
