Lucy Gellman Photo “The privilege to take risks is obligatory,” artist Daniel Eugene proclaimed Wednesday night, his eyes widening slightly as he took a sip of tea and walked toward the front of Studio Feruvius, his light-dotted work space at Erector Square. He cocked his head slightly to the side, assessing a new free-form hanging of drawings, and picked up his thought. “I need to be taking risks,” he said.

by Brian Slattery | May 25, 2015 10:35 am | Comments (1)

Gollum: Monsters of Ruin and the Techno-Sublime at Artspace on Orange Street draws from a lot of disparate elements: punk, computer animation, even old cartoons. What pulls it all together is that it’s creepy, like the better psychological horror movies out there, or the bad dream you can’t shake, and aren’t quite sure you want to.

Victor Agran Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s winding and cavernous Carceri, reimagined and rendered in bright watercolor for the year 2015. The late New Haven Coliseum, captured gracefully in stages of its demolition. Floating, torso-less anuses blooming into dahlias. A fantasy plane of strings and one blown-up, unattached molar, suspended in a universe that is not quite of this world or the next.
