Jason Freeny -- “Molt” at La Luz de Jesus (2.6)


Jason Freeny will be in LA for the opening of his Molt solo at La Luz de Jesus on Friday evening (2.6).  The apt title describes a transition in his art from his signature “dissected” toy aesthetic to a more pared down sculptural style.  The new work features original characters realized in a playful manner emphasizing form, volume, and clean, rounded surfaces.   While we—along with most everyone else on this planet—love Freeny’s dissected work, we’re happy to see him evolve his style with work that is exciting in its own right.  In addition to Molt, La Luz will also simultaneously open Miso’s Cornucopia.

Coarse Impress with ‘Prisoners Beside Me’ at Rotofugi



Coarse opened ‘Prisoners Beside Me’ at Rotofugi in Chicago on Friday evening (12.5).  Thanks to the great pics and info shared by the collectors on the indispensable Coarseheads fb group, we know that  the exhibition offered a strong mix of higher end sculpture -- both originals and small-run multiples --  as well as several limited-edition vinyl editions. 

On the one-off and multiples side, Coarse introduced a number of new animal characters including a crazy, crotchety frog, a very cool raccoon, a quirky mother goose, and a few versions of what we’re going to say are goats – including large children’s bouncy ride style pieces.  They also showcased several collaborations with Amanda Visell including three new one-off Dark Sorrows customs (Giraffe, Elephant, and Zebra).

The show also featured a large number of new limited-edition vinyl drops including the Outburst Loop 7” vinyls.  These are first  the vinyl editions of the exuberant omen’s with the spread wings first seen as part of the Outburst resin sets.  Rotofugi is offering three exclusive  Outburst Loop editions – a  white edition (30 pcs, $99)  which is sold out, a black edition (300 pcs, $99) and a blue edition (300 pcs $99).  Both of the larger editions are available for pre-order with delivery set for Q1 2015.  The show also marked the release of the  Omen Fugi mini in Roto Blue (300 pcs, $14.95).  Collectors will be happy to know that Roto also has the Omen Shibuya edition (300 pcs, $14.95).

Finally, Coarse said a heartfelt goodbye and honored  long-time collector Roman Shevchenko who recently passed away, tragically and suddenly, with Omen Fade – a new vinyl edition to benefit Roman’s family.  To be released on 1.8.15 via Coarselife,  the forlorn, eyes-closed Omen Fade was accompanied by a poem about the profound sense of loss that comes with the death of a dear friend.

Stay tuned for availability of the remaining limited-edition product from the show.

Coarse – ‘Prisoners Beside Me’ at Rotofugi (12.5)



Coarse will return to  Chicago for their new solo, ‘Prisoners Beside Me’, opening at Rotofugi on Friday December 5th.  We’re pretty excited and curious about the new pipe smoking frog character shown on the flier image. As is the Coarse way, the angular frog sculpt has plenty of personality with a wise, hardened expression and vibe.  Adding to the suspense, it sounds like this may be the only preview image prior to the opening.  We’ll be sure to bring you more info and pics when we can. If you’re going to the show, be aware that line tickets will be passed out at the gallery beginning at 11 AM Friday morning.

To celebrate the opening, Diesel Art released their exclusive Shibuya Omen.  At this point, it appears that the pink on pink edition is only available in Japan. However, Coarse has mentioned that they are working to see if they can make them available to collectors outside of Japan as well.
