Steven Harrington | Wavy Days

October 15 2015 . 08:48pm

Featuring the work of Steven Harrington (stevenharrington.com)

“Wavy Days,” my first solo show in Paris since 2009 is now on view at Colette, Paris. The title reflects my ongoing relationship with anxiety:

“It seems that all my life I’ve dealt with anxiety. Like many folks nowadays, I’m no stranger to feelings of worry, stress, apprehension, and even fear. Sometimes the feelings are constant and then sometimes I can go weeks or months without experiencing an anxious moment. But, in taking an honest look at my feelings, I’ve discovered that most of my anxiety is really of my own making—a pointless waste of emotional energy over things in the world I simply cannot control. Sometimes life just happens.

Through these paintings, I have found a way to deal with my own anxiety. To me, the paintings have become a way of making fun of these annoying moments and worrisome voices that I have in my head. I’ve purposely chosen to paint these emotions as playful cartoons in the hope of shedding humor on and giving perspective to the subjects. Please note the titles. I hope you enjoy.”

DABS MYLA WITH MODERNICA “BEFORE AND FURTHER” @ MODERNICA FACTORY, LOS ANGELES

Artist duo DABSMYLA presents Before and Further, a 4,000 square foot installation takeover of a stand-alone 1930 built Spanish Revival workplace building, located on the Modernica factory property. DABSMYLA have fully transformed its interior and exterior with their newest paintings, sculptures, installations and exclusive furnishings from limited-edition fiberglass shell chairs and hand painted ceramics to custom-built lighting installations, all designed and created exclusively for their collaboration with Modernica utilizing the factory’s extensive technical capabilities.

The already rich history of this building and Modernica create a fitting compliment for DABSMYLA’s spectacular experience. This long awaited solo show will be the follow up to their tremendous work in designing the logo and set of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards. This exhibition closes their already very busy year, which includes an enormous private showcase in New York City and having painted numerous murals worldwide.
Before and Further is inspired by the individual life experiences of DABSMYLA – experiences that ultimately resulted in bringing the two artists together and explores their mystical union and shared balance of love, creativity, friendship and sexuality. The significance of two becoming one is most essential to DABSMYLA, in their work and more importantly in their role as husband and wife. Their artistic singularity is evident though the distinguished back-and- forth process of painting they equally share. Before and Further recalls their unseenjourney of experience, the shared creative energy they’ve embraced and their cosmic consciousness of togetherness. This installation exemplifies DABSMYLA’s adventures in modern living and artistic partnershipwith a bit of psychedelic experimentation.
