“Without Rules” combines the works of four artists who, despite coming from very different backgrounds, all share a similar spirit of rebellion and innovation.
Brazilian artist Fernando Carpaneda paints and sculpts gay men on the fringes of society; Jesse Mosher tours with punk bands such as CJ Ramone, live painting their portraits on stage; Brooklyn born artist Frank Russo creates colorful sculptural paintings of savage cartoon mutants; and Miestorm Serpent, of Studio 54 fame, makes collages and paintings that are psychedelic and raw. The art in “Without Rules” is anarchic and makes no apologies for its shocking and countercultural nature.
Meet all of the artists at the Opening Party on Saturday April 23rd, from 7 to 10pm. A punk rock band will be playing a set in gallery, and artist Jesse Mosher will be making live paintings of the band as they perform. Admission is free and open to all ages.
MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street, between Baltic and Butler Streets in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Take the F or G to Bergen St., the A or C to Hoyt/ Schermerhorn, or the R to Union.
After opening night, the gallery will be open by appointment, and the artwork can also be viewed and purchased online at www.MFgallery.net
