Presenting JAKE KEAN MAYMAN /
Stellar Projects is thrilled to present a new body of paintings by LA-based artist Jake Kean Mayman, in his first solo exhibition in New York.
Mayman’s new body of work is a response to the recent trade and immigration policies established by the US government. Through meticulously rendered oil paintings, Mayman's subject matter references a history of U.S. interference in Central American nations. Mayman considers the support of violent regime change, sanctions and economic coercion; provoking today's destabilized economies and the displacement of civilian populations.
On view at 1 Rivington:

Stellar Projects is pleased to co-present Still Life with September in Hudson, New York.

Presenting ALIX PEARLSTEIN and PEGGY FRANCK with Arcade
Stellar Projects and Arcade present new work by Alix Pearlstein and Peggy Franck. Pearlstein’s Band Aid paintings developed in the early 1990’s in response to the AIDS epidemic and the fallout of the 1980's economic bubble. Issues concerning identity and the body, through the use of everyday materials, are revisited in a new suite of works that confront the anxiety of this current time period. Franck is known for her spatial explorations of the intersection between photography, installation, and painting.
For Stellar Projects, she creates a new wall installation exploring layered dimensions that question and celebrate gesture, in conjunction with Arcade's solo booth presentation at The Armory Show.
