1xRUN Presents ASKEW ONE’s “Entropy” At Inner State Gallery.

Join us in welcoming New Zealand artist ASKEW ONE to Detroit on August 23rd from 7-10pm.

 Through this new body of work Askew One further refines his unique method of painting portraits where the medium becomes the metaphor for a much bigger conversation. 

The portrait is the device used to represent immense entities of barely contained energy that have reached an entropic state only moments from a cataclysmic event. It is a discussion about existence and more specifically the fragility of all things – our incessant quest for balance and harmony when all things eventually deteriorate or revert to a state of chaos.

 

”Detroit started this whole train of thought during my first visit in 09. I think the metaphor of Entropy extends to Detroit as well. The Entropy in Detroit’s case was Human expanse and industry. This work is optimistic though, like Detroit. It’s about new beginnings.” –Askew

Mad Society Group show | December 9, 2012

December 01 2012 . 10:16pm


With worldwide acclaim achieved through a tireless dedication to a craft that is constantly under fire from outward sources looking to quell their cultural impact, a group of individuals with mutual admiration for one another have endured. Having presented work at the street-level in dilapidated areas both domestic and abroad, as well as in some of the largest and most respected museums and galleries in the world, these artists continue to be a driving force in not only promoting art, but the idea that surrounding yourself with the elite is a formula for inherent growth and endless blue chip opportunities.

Known Gallery is proud to present “MAD SOCIETY” on December 9 at Known Gallery, Los Angeles. Featuring new works from REVOK, RETNA, POSE, RIME, RISK, REYES, PUSH, ASKEW, ROID and ZES. Pieces include foraged geometric collages, pop color creations, politically-charged critiques, vivid abstractions and much more – with each blending traits and techniques learned years prior with acquired knowledge and masterful style procured from decades-long collaborations with one another. “Mad Society” perseveres.
