Bella Foster, Interior
Project Space: Art Since the Summer of ‘69 and Ooga Booga present Josh Blackwell’s new book
November 6 - December 19, 2010
Opening reception on Friday November 5, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Art Since the Summer of ’69 is proud to present Interior, Bella Foster’s first solo show in New York. Set amidst the accoutrements of an artist’s atelier, Foster’s paintings depict spaces both real and imagined. The banal arrangements of our daily routines are transformed into eclectic settings filled with quivering pattern and color. Inspired by artists and designers ranging from Henri Matisse to Charles and Ray Eames, these are the rooms we wish we lived in, portraits of an idealized eccentricity.
Bella Foster recently relocated to Los Angeles from New York, where she lived for 15 years. She has exhibited at Southfirst in Brooklyn, and Printed Matter and CRG Gallery in New York. Her drawings have been published in the New York Times, New York, W, and Diner Journal.
In the Project Space:
Art Since the Summer of ‘69 and Ooga Booga ( http://oogaboogastore.com/ ) present Josh Blackwell’s new artist’s book Plastic Bag as Humble Present, featuring his embroidered plastic bags photographed in unique and revealing poses. Blackwell has created a special multiple to celebrate the book’s release.
