Posted 10/12/09

With Moby-Dick, the Wattis presents the second of three shows rousting the spirits of great American literature. Although painted like a Nautica bedroom set with navy walls and white text, each room conjures the salty atmosphere of a heaving ship with alternately droning and ranting snippets from Orson Welles's recitation of Moby Dick. These elements (whale, walls, and Welles) attempt to interlace work from thirty-three international artists—no small feat. Of course, I don't envy the cu... [more]

    It’s great when you walk into a gallery and you are confronted with a set of conundrums that require a logical form of reading to play with and investigate the work. The relationship between what an artist is trying to convey and what the viewer receives is an interesting form of communication. It calls into question mass knowledge, semiotics, and the ability to recognize a subjective relationship with an object or form. Evan Holloway’s practice is all about playing with perception and th... [more]

The five sculptures of "51-55" are part of a whole, while the floating faces in turn are each part of their own wholes. The pincushions of colored heads against the clean straightness of the numerals and the 90 degree branches, and then the satisfying fullness of the black inner tube all match perfectly with the space in which they are housed. The gallery is itself its own planet floating between clothing stores and the traffic, composed of any number of constituent wholes within. Come on and re... [more]

It has been a rough start to the new millennium, and sadly art survey shows have failed to reflect the context in which art makers and viewers live. Thankfully Lauri Firstenberg of LAXART has remedied the disconnect with the 2008 California Biennial. Before you walk in the door, Sam Durant's banners (in English and Spanish) hijack the OC's civic-boosterism-via-banner-blight, by reminding residents that their comfortable homes were built by the sweat of an undocumented workforce, on a piece of...

At first, the current group show at Marc Foxx offers little in the way of a theme or “hook.” However, the juxtaposition of works that seem to have been randomly chosen to show together, other than the fact that they are all large-scale pieces, is ultimately rewarding rather than frustrating. The gaps left between one artist’s work and that of another are productive in that they lead one to actually try to put the puzzle together, rather than simply “read” the show along a pre-determined path.In spe...
