20150415223410-sbma_1953 Beautiful Experiments  
László Moholy-Nagy at Santa Barbara Museum of Art > Los Angeles
July 5th, 2015 - September 27th, 2015
Posted 8/2/15

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come puts forth a unique take on Moholy-Nagy's painted work with the incorporation of two interventionist pieces by other creators and a smattering of his own theatrical and photographic works. Due to the technology-based works’ expense and inherent complications, Moholy-Nagy reinvestigated painting as a medium to explore light and optics, while still drawing inspiration from these periodic experiments with other media. Perhaps somewhat mi... [more]

(Image: Ron Pokrasso, Marcos and the Chop Saw Landscape , Inkjet on paper mounted to wood, acrylic, collage, drawing, assemblage, 32" x 60"; © Ron Pokrasso) Ron Pokrasso (b. 1951, Brooklyn, New York) My artistic development spirals around a need to express, making new discoveries, and continually returning to familiar themes. I have always relied upon things that are close to me, things that speak about the passions in my life and are often derived from day to day experiences. The recen... [more]

Wil Murray: On Our Berlin Watchlist

(Image: Wil Murray, In My Culture Food is Not Very Important, 2011, 14 x 27 x 7 inches, Acrylic, Weaving, Collage, Photo on Board; © Skew Gallery) Wil Murray (b. 1978, Calgary, Canada) I take great inspiration from Kurt Kren’s 31/75 Asylum and from Val Del Omar’s Fuego in Castilla. I move to look at paintings hanging on walls, but also sit still to watch them slide across screens. I enjoy a practice of making still, dimensional, constructed objects that will be inevitably flattened and put... [more]

Claude Closky: On Our Paris Watchlist  
1/19/11 Posted 1/19/11

(Image: Claude Closky, To die in a Circus, 2009 ,Collage on paper and ball-point pen on paper , 297 x 210 mm; © Claude Closky) At first sight, Claude Closky is an artist who rubs shoulders with immateriality. He is at ease with electronic media, and some of the objects he makes do not reveal themselves instantly: the books, for example. Among the materials he uses — images, texts, numbers, and sounds sampled from our environment — language seems to be the most direct instrument of appropriation. B... [more]

Jancardfront1 John Hundt Totems  
John Hundt at Jack Fischer Gallery > San Francisco
January 10th, 2009 - February 14th, 2009
Posted 2/14/09

John Hundt's collages present totemic images made of surreal juxtapositions of mechanical objects and human body parts, hybrids made of the clunky and the svelte, the linear and the fleshy, the elegant and the mundane,  In his small presentations, many on antiqued paper backgrounds, his improbable images stand, squat, or soar with wit, whimsey, and absurdity, occasionally flirting with dark or profound associations. There is the occasional touch of eroticism, set off by the intrusion of a fema... [more]

March 22nd, 2008 - May 3rd, 2008
Posted 4/3/08

The metaphor of art as ”evanescence” is trickily oxymoronic, because while artists express feelings and thoughts that are by nature fleeting, they do so via objects created to last. The press material accompanying this two artists exhibition, titled ABSENCE AND ELSEWHERE and featuring the art of Melinda Smith Altshuler and Shauna Peck, speaks of the evanescent quality of both bodies of work, and rightfully so. Both women respond to poet Wallace Stevens’ mandate that artists &ldq... [more]

I don’t know I have a splinter of the memory when I quote dump monty python that I used to tape off the record player by pressing record on an old Panasonic great and black plastic portable cassette rocker next to the phonograph hardwood speaker and it all ended the summer of 1980 when Mike the dick Crider wanted Mike Crider my Black Sabbath wanted to peach fuzz me at Arlene’s donut shop on Santa Monica and Bundy Drive where there’s a Starbucks donut shop close to where I rode the bus up Bundy...

LA WEEKLY Must See Art Brenna Youngblood By Amra Brooks Wednesday, December 27, 2006 - 12:00 pmBrenna Youngblood at Susanne Vielmetter Project SpaceAnother project I’ve been eager to see is in the Project Space at Susanne Vielmetter. A departure from her show at the Hammer, Youngblood’s new work focuses more on painting than photography. There are still photographic elements, but the layering and collage are more in the surface than in the multiplicity of images. And where... [more]
