I spent a few days over at White Walls and it's sister galleries last week to check out the three shows that opend this past Saturday: Skinner's This Fear You May Know (White Walls), Ferris Plock's No Rest For The Wicked (The Shooting Gallery) and David Cook's Epic Battles.
Friday I dropped by to check out the installs of the shows, all three artists were in the galleries and there were lots of laughs happening. Each show was almost hung and things were looking soooo good. Each show complimented the other perfectly. I couldn't get over the amount of work that was on show. Especially Skinner's...the shear volume coupled with his detail was INTENSE! It was great to see so much of Skinner's and Ferris' work in one place. Upstairs in Gallery Three was Brooklyn based artist David Cook, whom I had never heard of. So it was great to get a sneak peek at his stuff before the opening. All very detailed and well done.
The opening was crazy packed and a lot of fun...last I heard Ferris Plock had sold every piece but two. No doubt those'll be gone in no time. Skinner's masks were going quickly as they were certainly priced to move at $300. I've compiled a bunch of pics from the installs and opening, plus a video of Skinner talking to me about various shivs and shanks he's both made and acquirred as far back as 3rd grade. You can see all three shows separately on the blog's flickr.
Many more images after the jump.
