‘Icons & Vandals’ provides urban, edgy artwork at Austin gallery

At the West Chelsea Contemporary art show "Icons & Vandals," two pieces seem especially well-matched. In front is Brendan Murphy's sculpture, "Boonji Spaceman." Behind it is Retna's painting, "The Bottom Line Is Red."

The two parts belong jointly.

A single is a steel sculpture of a spaceman. He shifts his bodyweight as if walking in unsure gravity. The gold mask on his helmet reflects back the visible earth in front of him, including any startled visitor who comes about to be searching in. White and black graffiti — equations, upbeat terms, diagrams — go over his principally dim-silver-purple fit and the gold metallic star that serves as his pedestal.

At the rear of the spaceman is a large canvas on a extended partition. Four traces of black script neatly cling about a person line of pink. The lettering, brushed or rolled frivolously, suggests a blend of language sources. Its indubitable legacy in road artwork pretty much disappears into an stylish, historic calligraphy.
