SPACE 1026 would like to present “Consider again, that dot. That’s home. That’s here. That’s us.” A selection of individual and collaborative works by Adam Lovitz and Patrick Maguire.

Opening Reception:

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

7-10 PM
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

“First, she tried a spoonful from Papa Bear’s great big bowl. “OW!” she yelled, “TOO HOT!”
Next, she tried a spoonful from Mama Bear’s medium-sized bowl. “Brrrrr! TOO COLD!” she complained.
Finally, Goldilocks tried a spoonful from Baby Bear’s tiny little bowl. “YUMMY!” she cried. “THIS IS JUST RIGHT!” Goldilocks ate the entire bowlful.”

The Goldilocks Zone, a distance from a star that would allow the surface temperatures of a planet to be Earth-like and just right for liquid water, marks itself as the best place to look for life similar to ours.

Patrick Maguire and Adam Lovitz have composed works that teeter on the threshold of familiarity and strangeness, at times escaping into the immeasurable. This tension, found in both artists’ practice, occurs in between the space of literal representation and total abstraction. A pupa world is documented, positioning itself amidst a developed and undeveloped state of being.

There are some pieces that caress or disfigure the gravitational pull of life on Earth, whether it be akin to the surface of a stone, or cultural debris on a city sidewalk. While others hover just beyond our atmosphere, transmitting a signal only made visible when looking inside our self.

And who is to say this phenomenon, this awareness, is not as tangible as feeling the warmth of a dying star from the comfort of our home?

FREAK SCENE EAST

On July 6th 2012 at Synchronicity in Los Angeles, CA a group show featuring 15 of the weirdest, wildest, and most powerful subterranean comix artists exploded into peoples faces with a visceral splat! There were some injuries and one spontaneous combustion, but overall it was a good nite.
The show was called FREAK SCENE.

Its been almost 2 years but you can’t keep good Freaks down…
Now, this spring, the FREAKS are back!
and this time with a few new friends along for the trip.

FREAK SCENE EAST
the new freak champions of underground comix

featuring works by:
Johnny Ryan (Prison Pit/Angry Youth Comix/Penis WAR)
Benjamin Marra (Night Buisness/Gansta Rap Posse/Traditional Comics)

Pakito Bolino (Le DernierCri/Pixel Junk Destuctoid)
Jim Rugg (Supermag/Afrodisiac/Street Angel)
Matt Furie (Boys Club/The Night Riders)
Victor “BALD EAGLES” Cayro (Bittersweet Romance/Rub the Blood)

So what is FREAK SCENE EAST?

FREAK SCENE EAST is…
Graphic spewings of beauty and weirdness undulating thru your eyes and into your reptile brain, forcing a miniature breakdown in your DNA, allowing you to enjoy yourself in a primal state…

FREAK SCENE EAST is…
An overwhelming wave of 2 dimensional power forged 
thru vibrating formations of paper, pencil and ink, opening portals to dimensions of refined crudeness, painstakingly achieved renderings of id, the grotesque twistings of body, form and flesh, and reality-less vacuums of violence, absurdity and joy!

FREAK SCENE EAST is…
an explosion of original art, prints and comics from 21 of the biggest Freaks in comics today.

Enter this den of FREAKS… and let your brains go…
Come out to the opening nite party.
See some cool shit and hang with some Freaks.
