Circle Culture Gallery Hamburg presents the solo exhibition “Nothing is what it seems“ by American artist Olivia Steele. A selection of photographs as well as her most recent neon works will be shown – a range from small to large installations that employ the traditional commercial medium of neon glass to make intimate statements, representing a profound involvement with the unpredictability of life. The juxtaposition of the neon statement and the environment is placed in challenging conventional semiotics and evokes a wide range of interpretations. In dialogue with media such as facades, rivers, photographs and found objects, she tells short stories that provoke thought while enlightening the scenery with elaborate handwritings in neon glass.

Anthony Lister’s thought provoking works resonate with his admirers. For this reason he is already largely described as “Australia’s best contemporary artist.” To the delight of New Yorkers, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery is opening a new solo exhibition of this widely celebrated Australian artist on June 28.  The exhibition is titled Power Tripping and it will be his first with the gallery. Anthony Lister helped pioneer the street art movement in his native Brisbane before moving to New York in 2003 to work with his mentor, Max Gimblett, one of New Zealand’s most influential living artists.

Jonathan LeVine Gallery presents ‘Unforeseeable’, new works by Brazilian artist Rafael Silveira in what will be his debut solo exhibition in New York. Rafael Silveira’s imaginative work combines figurative classical painting, comic-inspired imagery and surreal subject matter, resulting in a universe where dreams are blended with waking life and the impossible appears commonplace. Silveira credits his native Brazil as a source of inspiration and describes his experience living in the country as having “daily contact with the bizarre, absurd and preposterous. It’s like walking through a wild forest where beauty and dangers reveal themselves in strange, random and haphazard ways.”
