Posted 4/4/15

Laysa Issam al Fannan – Curious Blend of Art & Ego (Presently showing at Art Share LA in Los Angeles) This is possibly the second showing of Laysa’s art that I have found publically, showing presently in Los Angeles, with my first introduction to his work at a showing in Portland, Oregon last year. Having covered the international art scene for many years, I had never heard of this artist until recently, at first not quite knowing where he comes from or if Laysa Issam al Fannan is... [more]

Opening Night Report: Deadbeat Club: Mentally Retired, LA  
by
1/20/15 Posted 1/20/15

By the time I’d arrived, several hundred people had lined the sidewalk of N. Figueroa Ave and edged themselves around the corner onto Avenue 60 some two blocks away. It was a clusterfuck, albeit, a pretty relaxed one. The atmosphere surrounding the Highland Park gallery and retail space Slow Culture is chill. A few tags from nomadic friends blend with the charm of the traditional neighborhood, plus the mosaic Space Invader installation above the entrance door is a sweet touch. Upon entry, I gave my best attempt at mingling while shuffling through the... [more]

by
10/21/14 Posted 10/21/14

The above headline from an article on Al-Jazeera America started circulating online through my social media in the past week. Since then, I’ve seen a lot of CalArts alumni, staff, and current students sounding out in solidarity with the student, now a sophomore at the Institute. In response, the school sent out an email outlining its policies and its efforts to make them better. CalArts is a small community, and so this current scandal is having a real effect on it. But despite its siz... [more]

(Image: Micah Linton, Lintonian Mechanical Butterfly, 2011, Ink & Digital; © Micah Linton) Micah Linton (b. 1972, California) As an artist and creativity coach, delving into the unconscious regions of the mind using active imagination techniques has been of vital importance. As such, unconscious elements of the psyche and their symbolic representations have long been the subject of my works.
