Sickboy - Heaven & Earth from Mark Warrington
'Borough & Lane' New Works On Paper By Evan Hecox 04.11.11 - 27.11.11
Evan Hecox is an artist whose work captures the essence of urban environments through a unique process that involves first-hand observations of his surroundings and then progresses into drawings and paintings that are striking in their graphic simplicity.
In his newest body of work Evan Hecox has concentrated, for the first time, on the city of London. The city makes for deep and appropriate subject matter for the artist, with it's intricate network of neighborhoods, streets, canals and old buildings that form the backdrop for it's bustling population.

Over the course of the past decade, FAILE developed an artistic practice inflected with remixes of mass culture, and built on careful juxtapositions of seeming dualities. Fragments of FAILE allows us to see them working at one frontier of their practice, stripping their painting down to its essentials and engaging a century of the more expressive terrain of abstract portraiture. This suite of new works provides an intimate counterpart to FAILE’s recent large-scale explorations of religious motifs while drawing out less obvious threads in their practice, from subtle gradations of color and pattern to a conscious removal of clear identities in order to explore archetypical structures beneath. Assembled from the artists’ own archive, Fragments of FAILE represents not a radical departure, but a rare opportunity to see their iconic practice anew. Lazarides Gallery
