Won't you play me, the jazz hot maybe -- Robert Pokorny


M Modern Gallery in Palm Springs has lined up another great show, this time with artist Robert Pokorny. The show, titled "Transitions" is described in the press release this way: "Transactions explores an abstraction of the figure, drawing on inspiration from Jazz Album Covers, Modern to Post Modern Art and contemporary culture. Time, movement and a state of transition are embodied in Pokorny’s sophisticated character driven pieces."

Mr. Pokorny's illustrations have been featured in magazines, newspapers and on CDs, and he has created band posters for a long list of rock luminaries, including Sonic Youth, Damien Rice, Rilo Kiley, Jack Johnson, and many others. In fact, you can purchase many of them in his online store. He also has other great merchandise in his store, including t-shirts, throw pillows, and birthday cards.

The show opens April 19th, from 7 to 10, and Mr. Pokorny will be in attendance. Can't make it to sunny Palm Springs? You can still purchase the works from the gallery. They run from $900 to $1500 and can be seen here.
