20110828092355-1 Passionista:The Inner Worlds of Martin Kersels  
Martin Kersels at ACME September 10th, 2011 - October 8th, 2011
Posted 9/17/11

“I put it out there (as) an open-ended statement, like a question. It just is”, Kersels told the LA Times in 2008. “It just is”. The work in his current solo show, Passionista, at ACME gallery is a case in point. His series of drawings, featuring images of human skeletons overlapped by images of the natural world (i.e. galaxies, spider webs), ask the viewer not only to make profound connections between external and internal environments, but to think of the scope of what is “out there”.  Beyond...

Posted 8/23/11 A chain letter is a message sent in an effort to induce friend and stranger alike to pass it on, often under pain of punishment or promise of benefit. Today it's a handy, analog metaphor for digital social networks. In June, artists Doug Harvey and Christian Cummings sent a chain letter (actually, a chain email) to 10 artists each one admired, inviting them to show up and participate... [more]

Amy Sarkisian: On Our Los Angeles Watchlist  
5/2/11 Posted 5/2/11

(Image:Amy Sarkisian, Installation, 2011; WPA Gallery) Amy Sarkisian (b.1969, Cleveland, Ohio, USA) Amy Sarkisian’s new sculptures present an iconic statement about the perverted, maligned and marginal in all of us."This body of work is a combination of drawing and sculpture, which are my two default modes of working. I’m attracted to drawing because of its economy and it balances my sculptural practice, which tends to be more complex." A solo exhibition of her new works can be viewed at WPA... [more]

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]

Craig Goodworth offers the evidence of a body of work that spans the last five years of his life in diverse geographic environments.  Although noted as being in one gallery space, the work [which includes objects, drawings and video installation] can be found hanging, standing, or resting on shelves, the floor and pedestals, or leaning about in two separate galleries, a modified closet and throughout the length of a two hundred foot hallway for the next few days.  It's as if there is too much to...

Found on,0,7952955.story) Public art has a new look as independent nonprofits join the scene. The result: happenings in traffic islands, dreams pinned to chain-link fences and more.

Kimberberryliquidenviro A must see  
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]
