Made In LA 2016: a, the, though, only
Titled by minimalist poet and writer, Aram Saroyan, as his contribution to the exhibition, the title gives a clear idea of the exhibition content. Words and ideas form the theme, to the detriment of visual experience. The sad part about this is that there is little attempt to make the ideas visual. The viewer faces rooms filled with not-very-interesting ideas and not-very-interesting reading, even to the inclusion of paintings of internet pages.

For decades now, Jennifer Faist has made abstract painting look easy. Her almost monochrome meditations have privileged subtlety and sensuality as their sole subjects. In her April, 2015, solo show at the Ruth Bachofner Gallery, though, she brought in a third element: disruptive patterns. The show was entitled, “Some Things Are Hard to Remember; Some Things You'll Never Forget,” and she gave her longtime admirers a great leap of difference to ponder while making fresh, in... [more]

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]

I have been looking for the right space and group of people to share my work with for the last 2 years. I have now found that space and am excited to share a new body of work that includes, the beginning of many new series of works. The planetary series, The Vision Quest series, the Lazer series, new miniature art books and of course some of my classics, Pixel Perfect, Angel Hearts and if time permits perhaps a new mermiad and new ballerina. The clock is ticking - Namaste. [more]

Art or Not? "An intellect says a simple thing in a hard way, an artist says a hard thing in a simple way" Bukowski once said. The art world is full of both. Each week, we ask our readers to have some fun figuring out what is art, what is intellect, and what is just potted plants.
This week: One of the images described below is the perfect artwork for a health goth's home. Can you tell which?

A gaggle of young adults dressed to the nines on a street corner in Silver Lake, CA, is not an uncommon occurrence. It probably happens every day for some reason or another. It’s not so common, however, when the entire street corner itself is also dressed up. At the intersection of Bates and Sunset, you can see an entire block coated in white wash. The former Bates Motel and its surroundings, including fences, barbed wire, palm trees, and shrubbery, are all covered in an organic, lime-ba... [more]
Two bodies of work come together for the first time in Making Strange. UCLA’s resident authority on South Asian Contemporary Art, Associate Professor Saloni Mathur, is an outstanding ambassador to the work of Vivan Sundaram. Sundaram’s prolific and varied work draws influence from Dada to Dior, which can be seen in Gagawaka and then subverted in Postmortem, the two works that comprise Making Strange. Miwon Kwon, Chair of the Art History Department at UCLA, co-curates with Mathur an... [more]

There are many layers of meaning and material in Babak Emanuel’s art. His large-scale paintings in this exhibition combine various modes of image making: their first layer may be a field of precisely ruled vertical stripes, painted in surprisingly animated brushstrokes – an odd juxtaposition of predetermi...
