Dalek at @JLeVineGallery

Faesthetic friend and contributor James Marshall AKA Dalek has a Solo show opening up tomorrow at Jonathan LeVine Gallery.

The Redistribution of Destruction marks Marshall’s return to the New York art world after a five year hiatus during which he perfected a purely abstract aesthetic. Bold, flat colors form planes of space that are impeccably separated by precise geometric line-work. Giving the impression of movement, his pairing of vivid shades evoke a three-dimensional depth and engages viewers with varying optical perspectives.

Marshall’s work has significantly evolved since his debut solo show at the gallery back in 2007. At the time he was known solely as Dalek and his iconic Space Monkey, a mischievous character born out of graffiti, was featured in every vibrant composition. By 2010, he dropped the Dalek moniker to reveal his true name and debuted paintings that reduced the Space Monkey and his surroundings to their basic underlying linear components.

The character that once defined Marshall’s work is now only a starting point for paintings rich in complex layers, illustrating the push and pull of forces he sees in contemporary life. “It’s an ever-expanding, contracting barely breathing universe, contemplating suffocation while simultaneously hovering over the consequences of not exploring further the options that no longer lay waiting in the back of the coat room.

Faesthetic friend Shepard Fairey has produced a large volume of work over the past 15 years. While he has become a house hold name there has never really been a good place to really get a clear sense of his output. Even his own archive is not a great homage to his career.

Thankfully the fine folks at ARTSY have an amazing archive including works for sale.
