Sang Bleu 5 NY launch + exhibition

7 June 2010

Author : maxime-buechi

Sang Bleu is happy and proud to announce its first official event in NYC! Hosted by Envoy Enterprises, the show will present a selection of works by Thomas Hooper, renowned tattoo artist and editor of Sang Bleu. Thomas’ pictorial work although directly complementary to his skin-based work, sails far from the world of tattooing to explore a very medium-orientated abstraction. Mixing with ease orthodox and unorthodox painting techniques, organic textures with computer-enhanced patterns, accidental stains with geometrical entities, witnessing an undeniable although alienated legacy from Abstract Expressionism. In addition to the paintings, a projected composition based of found 8mm footages turn decay and memory into an abstract artistic language.

The second part of the launch will feature performances curated by performance artist Jack Ferver whose work combines confession, explicit choreography, and a darkly knowing gaze to elicit contradictory intellectual and visceral responses from the audience.

The Sang Bleu Family is looking forward to welcoming you to this double-sided New York event, which will be followed by a party at the Envoy Bar.
