by
Oscar Sanabria at FREMONT GALLERY September 4th, 2010 - October 31st, 2010
Posted 10/7/10

“Into the Sea” by Oscar Sanabria, currently at Fremont Gallery in South Pasadena (9/4/10 – 11/6/10), is reminiscent of James Abbott Mcneill Whistler’s journey to Valparaiso, Chile, in 1866 when the American-born British based artist inspired by the Chilean port city, painted haunting night scenes of the harbor in a blue and green palette. Sanabria’s figurative abstracts echo the haunting emotions inspired by the sea, the birth of life, and infinity. Sanabria softly flicks his paintings with colors an... [more]

Found on http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-ca-public-art-20100606,0,7952955.story) Public art has a new look as independent nonprofits join the scene.

(Excerpt from "Justified" by Catherine Wagley, published in Daily Serving, April 2010.  Found on http://dailyserving.com/2010/04/justified/)   Lazzarini has been distorting the distinction between two and three dimensions for a long time coming.  This time, he does it with weapons. In the new FX series Justified, a quick-to-draw marshal who wears a skin of coolness over his pent up anger nearly always shoots to kill. That’s the show’s conceit: at the end of each episode, someone is either shot dead or left alive by a carefully calcula... [more]

JONaEON at Flying Saucers Caffeine and Art Gallery March 5th, 2010 - March 31st, 2010
Posted 3/12/10

By Melissa Jordan BART Senior Web Producer The year was 1978. Star Wars fever had swept the nation a year earlier, with fantastic characters like the droid C-3P0 capturing the public imagination. In San Francisco, an artist who went by the name JONaEON took on the persona of a silver android called SL7. In a performance art piece documented in photographs, SL7 traveled on the trains of Bay Area Rapid Transit alongside everyday commuters. That series of photographs is being shown for the fi...

Kimberberryliquidenviro A must see  
by
Lisa Adams, Kimber Berry, Hollis Cooper, Rebecca Niederlander at Riverside Art Museum November 21st, 2009 - February 20th, 2010
Posted 12/4/09

One of the best shows I have seen all year.  It all works great together.  But one artist shines out drastically, completely fresh and new.  The artist Kimber Berry has a paint installation up in the Riverside Art Museum that you essentially walk into.  You actually experience the paint versus just scanning it. What a great abstract expressionist painter she is.  The evolved extension of Pollock with a feminine palette capturing the current colors of the times, something the old master would del... [more]

Kimber Berry at Phantom Galleries LA - August 22nd, 2009 - September 12th, 2009
Posted 9/17/09

All I can say is … WOW!!!  Finally, a painter doing something more cutting edge.  They are big; they are beautiful; impossible to get bored while scanning these works.  And what the heck is going on in the corner? … Looks like a painting blending right into the wall – never seen that before, so in my book - a must see.  She is definitely a true artist and not a one trick pony. Like any master painter, they can really mix it up…and she does a great job in doing so.  If you are in LA and love paint…. yo... [more]

diLo - Eugenia di Lorenzo at World Art Foundation June 7th, 2009 - June 14th, 2009
Posted 6/9/09

The Art of di.Lo is Matter, light, sign, integrated in an original figure of painting. Her research is vibrant: the colours are tactile, the matter is impregnated with meaning, that alludes to a metaphysical transcendence. Mixed media canvases that become a metaphor for emotional spheres, of memories, of inner journeys marked by the traces of oneiric colours that create fascinating and charming atmospheres. Yes Contemporary, but with a very mystical aftertaste. An art in art, an inherent dualism that makes... [more]
