Though a non-descript, signless space, bricked and fortified with bars, she looks soft inside, the toughness dropping away. Opened now­—wide by hand—she's entered into with cautionary eagerness. Inside her arrangement appears fixed as if one mussed her carefully constructed visage it would be righted magically to how it began.   Her bare walls provide room for thoughts to bounce toward and from which to peel away. These thoughts lap down upon desks, huddled together, which rest waiting for a ne... [more]

Desertshore. Everything turns to sand - dry and parched. Writer/curator Jan Tumlir curated “Desertshore” at Cal State Los Angeles’ Luckman Gallery with Nico’s 1970 album in mind. All 15 of the artists featured in the show are Los Angele-based artists and it shows. It really makes sense; we live in a city built on top of a desert, kept alive by constant rebirth. The works deal with urban and desert landscapes, destruction, decay and rebuilding. Parts of the exhibition summon thoughts of Mad Max,... [more]

You want to feel artwork before you think about it, to feel guilty, uncomfortable, elated, seduced, or even perplexed. Then you want to kick your brain into gear, to figure why you feel what you feel, what dormant nerve the work has struck. Those situations in which your brain can’t decipher your emotional reaction are initially disappointing but ultimately unmemorable. The times when the feeling doesn’t strike at all and you have to do brain work first can be rewarding though, especially if th... [more]

Mandarin Gallery’s current exhibition is a conundrum. You, Whose Beauty Was Famous in Rome, curated by young LA art scene figures Andrew Berardini and Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer, is both wily and gapingly tender, leaving you torn between the charm of the appropriated imagery and the works' darker side.  Much of the dapper collage and photography by the show’s eight artists has the same fugitive allure as the defaced books that got 1960's British writers Joe Orton and Kenneth Haliwell into...
