Jeff Gabel on Artreview.com


Jeff Gabel is the featured artist on Artreview.com's project space this month.

The project space invites artists to present a work via Flash animation, and Jeff here uses a hand-drawn template of the Artreview website as the platform for another of his remarkable, ramshackle, heartfelt rants. Letting loose on himself, his day job, the commission, and other assorted woes, Jeff admits he is rarely more happy than "during infrequent drinking opportunities..."

An accompanying interview provides a fascinatingly frank insight into the artist's approach to work and life. Check it out at www.artreview.com/projectspace.

Tessa Farmer at Spencer Brownstone Gallery



The gallery is currently closed for the installation of our next exhibition, the New York solo debut of English artist Tessa Farmer, to open Monday November 10th, 6-8pm.

Tessa Farmer's remarkable work conjures a fantastical miniature world from organic material including twisted plant roots, dead insects, bones, and mummified animals. She creates a dramatic parallel world where 'fairies' - half insect/half humanoid skeletal creatures with skull heads and twisted limbs - roam with malevolent intent the sculptural tableaux the artist creates for them.

On view will be five new interconnected sculptures that create an unfolding narrative around the gallery's main space, as well as two of the artist's stunning stop-motion films, created in collaboration with Sean Daniels, that literally animate her tiny sculptures, drawing out their willfully destructive antics to the full.
