REVOK to Open New Exhibition That Displays “the Physical and Conceptual Disintegration of Structures”REVOK is setting up shop in Los Angeles through mid-November.
Back in February, REVOK teamed up with the likes of Adrian Falkner, AJ Fosik, Cleon Peterson, Faile, Hacer, Kelsey Brookes, Mars-1, POSE, Ryan McGinness, Sam Friedman, Shepard Fairey and Swoon for a collective exhibition with Library Street Collective in Detroit. Now REVOK and LSC are together again, this time taking to Los Angeles for a brand new solo show. Dubbed “SYSTEMS,” the display will explore “the physical and conceptual disintegration of structures” as the self-taught artist offers up new large-scale paintings on both canvas and metal, some of which utilize unique proprietary tools like an apparatus that can hold and spray eight cans simultaneously — the results of which are a system of lines and imperfect patterns that could never be repeated by hand. Many of the works also pay homage to longtime influence Frank Stella — specifically the artist’s Black Series of the ’60s — as REVOK introduces gestural glitches to disrupt Stella’s geometrical perfection.
“SYSTEMS” opens October 22 at the Castelli Arts Complex and will remain open to the public through November 12.
