Two in Chelsea
James Kalm makes a short Friday night tour of West 27th Street and captures views of some of todays most provocative artists. Dropping in first at Derek Eller Gallery, we ogle the amusing, sometimes shocking sculptural installation of Peter Caine. Space aliens, Yetis and mechanical ape-people all huddle in an igloo performing unmentionable rituals. In the back gallery were treated to a couple of paintings by the Swedish artist Per Enoksson. These examples display a disturbing yet humorous confluence of Nordic Expressionism and the Abject. Running on to Schroeder Romero, we glimpse the latest drawings of Michael Waugh. Taking its title from Marie-Jeanne Rolands quote, The more I see of man the more I admire dogs Waugh forges his images from texts derived from Presidential commissions, evoking a questioning of our acceptance of the loyalty of democratic governments. Featuring interviews with Peter Caine and Michael Waugh.
