Rosalyn Drexler

Posted in art, painting by cheapandplastique on February 11, 2014


Self-Portrait, 1964, Acrylic and paper collage on canvas: 39 7/8 x 29 7/8 inches

Discovered the artist Rosalyn Drexler at the Fredericks Freiser Gallery Pop Abstraction exhibition this past weekend. I don’t think I have ever seen her work before. Apparently she was working in the 60s making pop art paintings and sculpture along side all the big names we know today. I really really love the first work in this post (which is the one on exhibition in Chelsea).

She seems like a very progressive woman: Pop artist, professional wrestler (under the name Rosa Carlo, the Mexican Spitfire!), novelist, Obie Award-winning playwright, and Emmy Award-winning screenwriter. It always makes me very happy to find out about super cool ladies doing awesome things back when it really was more of a man’s world!

listen, the snow is falling…

Joël Tettamanti, another Cheap & Plastique featured artist, worked on this 23-minute film documenting a skate trip in the Swiss Alps with Bertrand Trichet and Carhartt WIP. The short film is called Swiss Banks.


More info on the project on Grey Skate Magazine‘s blog here. You can find my interview with Joel from 2011 here.

Nowhere is a Place

Posted in art, chelsea, photography by cheapandplastique on February 8, 2014

Saw Frank Thiel‘s Nowhere is a Place exhibition at Sean Kelly Gallery today. The photographs are amazingly beautiful and made my desire to go to Greenland even stronger (these pictures were shot in Argentine Patagonia but I imagine the miles and miles of Greenland glaciers I flew over, when returning from Iceland last year, would look quite similar to these when up close and personal).

Upon leaving the gallery I found myself climbing over many of NYC’s petite grey and trash strewn “mini-glaciers” (aka 4 foot high dirty snow piles) to get from sidewalk to street… I really longed to be out of the city and in a place where I could experience pristine, untouched nature. Icelandic trip #2 can not come soon enough!
