Scooter LaForge
Everything Is Going to Be OK
56 Bogart Street

April the 2nd was another exciting Sunday at Theodore:Art with Scooter LaForge. Play, experimentation and art making are the hallmarks of LaForge's recent exhibition, Everything Is Going to Be OK. One is invited into a space of imagination and magic. The variety of materials entice the viewer to look closely. During the second Sunday of drawing, conversation and camaraderie were reminders of the playful quality of Warhol's Factory. The event was just plain fun. It was well attended and ran overtime.
It’s a very rare treat to be able to work with LaForge himself. He is a master of invention. It is a great honor to sketch with Scooter and others were asked to join in. I strongly urge folks to visit this coming Sunday, April 9th and see the magic for themselves. There are only two Sundays left. Hope to see you there. —Joel Handorff

The Odyssey
22nd March – 10th April 2018


Jealous East, 53 Curtain Road, London, EC2A 3PT

Private View Thursday, 22nd March 2018, 7—9pm

Jealous is proud to present The Odyssey, a show of paintings and prints by New York-based artist Scooter LaForge. This is his debut show in London, curated by legendary DJ Seth Troxler.
Fairytales gone wrong—inhabited by sexy boys and subversive fairies masquerading and transforming into cyclopes, nymphs, magical creatures, angels, and monsters—have always been a natural terrain for Scooter’s paintings.
His 2015 exhibition at Howl! Happening gallery in NYC, How to Create a Monsterpiece, centered on an adaptation of Rembrandt’s The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp; the doctor’s students morphed into clowns and a blue bear, the corpse now a jester. Forbes honored the show on their 10 best list of the year—yet Scooter is able to inspire the popular imagination beyond the constraints of the art world. He travels fluidly between being a painter’s painter and the mores of fashion. His canvas is as shape shifting as his allegories, be it properly mounted on stretcher bars, body painting, painting on clothing, or directly on walls.
In the Jealous show, Scooter’s painterly adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey merges the existent and the imaginary, just as the latter combined history with ancient Greek mythology.
Polyphemus; Who’s No Body? (2018), the first print Scooter created at Jealous Print Studio, originated from an actual body-painting of the face and clothing of his friend and fellow artist Joel Handorff, transforming Joel into an imaginary cyclop. Odysseus’ cunning claim to Polyphemus of being ‘nobody’ becomes an allegory of the artist’s rouse.
Another work in the show, The Lotus Eaters (2018), is Scooter’s adaptation of the tragic downfall of Odysseus’ men, who were intoxicated by the fruit of the lotus flower. For Scooter, the tale relates to drug and alcohol issues in today’s society. He paints a contemporary-looking still life of a vase in which wilting cut flowers with human faces—perhaps carnivorous—allude to the inebriated men.
In addition to paintings, prints, and wall murals, a signed edition of 20 catalogs accompanies the show—each one a hybrid of hand painted t-shirt and book.

Theodore:Art is with Oliver Wasow.

Oliver Wasow Selected Works 1983-2017 - opens Friday March 2.

Oliver Wasow occupies a unique place in the history of photography. He began his career as a younger member of the Pictures Generation and has remained consistently in the vanguard of technological innovation and issues central to contemporary photographic discourse. His pre-digital work of the 1980s anticipated the seismic shifts brought on by the digital revolution today, addressing photographic veracity, the cultural production of spectacle, post-production practice, and questions of authorship and ownership.
