"Precious" isn't "Silkwood"

Elijah Has a New Show

Elijahshow2 Elijah Blue's latest show is called "Stuff of Legends", presented this time by Kantor Gallery and Madison Gallery.

His first exhibition "Step and Repeat" presented by Kantor Gallery was reportedly sold out "with the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art acquiring the final piece."

According to the release:

"both commentaries on the union of celebrity and commerce. "Step-and-Repeat" looked at the commercial medium of the step and repeat backdrop found on red carpets. "Stuff of Legends" is a further abstraction and smaller study on the nuances of the first series of paintings in "Step-and Repeat." Both take a Warhol-like look at logos and Blue explores the "current celebrity condition" as an Orwellian device. In an interview with ArtInfo in February for the "Step-and-Repeat" exhibit Blue said: "I watch Jersey Shore. I love it. I watch it and I am corrupted, and I am the symptom. I am not above any of this - there is no escaping what we have become. I am just commenting on it."

Yes, that always bears repeating.

The exhibition runs at the Madison Gallery 23410 Civic Center Way, Malibu, CA 90265-310.317.8787
2 July through 2 August
