White Noise mystics at Space 1026

At a moment when the so-called adults of the world are failing to find solutions to the big problems that face us on Planet Earth, a desperate new generation is turning to mysticism for a way out of the mess we are making.

Their thinking is not so far from the thinking of the ’60s, with its search for transcendance through sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.

White Noise at Space 1026 this month is a group show about modern mysticism, spirituality, new psychedelia and the environment. It draws artists from coast to coast and includes one from Finland.

William Buzzell’s "Class Action" Opens Feburary 16th

Giant Robot is proud to present Class Action, paintings and sculpture by Philadelphia-based artist William Buzzell.

Working almost entirely with found wood or metal and common latex house paint, Buzzell’s pieces are characterized by a surface of intricate brushwork and often feature three-dimensional elements. William Buzzell dips into the mundane, the practical world and a deep well of popular culture, often using maps, logos, charts, text, and familiar cartoon characters or TV icons to fill every inch of his paintings. A native of Providence, RI, much of Buzzell’s early work was installed on the streets of his hometown and New York under the alias Rotgut.

Buzzell is a current member of the Artist Studio/Gallery Space 1026 in Philadelphia. The artist has had major exhibitions in Los Angeles, San Jose, Sweden, and Canada. We are very pleased to offer his first solo show in New York.

A reception for William Buzzell will be held from 6:30 to 10:00 on Saturday, February 16. For more information about the artist, GRNY, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact GRNY.
