Upcoming Group Exhibition at Big Pictures Los Angeles

May 2019

Sympathetic Magic is a group exhibition featuring the work of Eric Ashcraft, Matthew Arnone, Grace Mattingly and Tyler Lafreniere.  The exhibition explores the creation of idiosyncratic representations that attempt to change the artist’s perception of reality. Sir James George Frazier in  “ The Golden Bough “ (1889) defined sympathetic magic as the realization of a magic act through either imitation or correspondance, the result of which relies heavily in the magician’s honest belief that the trick will succeed in front of a mesmerized audience.

On March 8th, Launch F18 closed its final exhibition at the 94 Allen St. space in New York.

Discrete Pieces, reviewed in the New York Times

January 2016

Among this exhibition’s beautifully made works is a life-size representation of a sidewalk mailbox lying on its side. Stripped of all extraneous details and colored entirely powder blue, it has an almost immaterial quality; it’s a Platonic ideal of the standard mailbox.
