20130128154400-hammer4 HOW TO BONG OUT WITH YOUR DONG OUT AT MARK MOORE GALLERY  
by
Okay Mountain at Mark Moore Gallery February 16th, 2013 - March 16th, 2013
Posted 2/23/13

OKMT: LONG PLAYS   A CONCRETE CLOWN HEAD. Mouth agape, tongue spilling out onto an astroturfed lawn. A crumbling relic. Krusty’s kid brother.  The putting green is littered with cigarette butts and beer cans. Amateur graffiti and petty vandalism designate adolescent rebellion at its finest: School Night stages the aftermath of an illicit late night game of Crazy Golf and is the spatially dominant centerpiece of Texan collective OKAY MOUNTAIN’S first Los Angeles solo exhibition at Mark Moore Galle...

(Image: Natalie Hile Cross, sad bluebird, 2012, mixed media on paper; © Natalie Hile Cross)   Natalie Hile Cross (b. 1970, Butler, PA) A painting often starts with an impulse of a gestural mark or a color I see behind my eyes before waking up.  From there it is much like a chess game between myself and the developing work.  I really don't want to win, the painting has to be the winner.  I want to put up a valiant effort to keep up with what is evolving. It is always a challenge....an overa... [more]

(Image: Gill Miller, Chain Drive 4, 2012, Spray Acrylic, 36 X 36 X 1-1/2 Inches; © Gill Miller)   Gill Miller (lives in Santa Monica, CA) For Gill Miller, spray acrylic on canvas is the medium that he uses exclusively. It has a rhythm and poetry that is magical to him. Originally influenced by graffiti, his work has evolved from complex compositions to modernist paintings that make bold, sweeping statements. His current series of paintings are focused on the exploration of the round form and its relationship... [more]

(Image: Michael James, The Big Bang, 2009, Acrylic, 30 x 30 x 1.5 inches, 2009; © Michael James)   Michael James (b. 1946, California) Experiences living in the United States and abroad greatly influence each of my Abstract paintings.  As I begin to focus on the rhythmic breathing of a bare canvas my images mature, developing to a point where a passion to lay the first crucial stroke overwhelms me.  When I lay that first stroke an evolvement commences, guiding me on a journey, a journey revealing another, often...

Granada Hills, CA) Art is the truth we perhaps will never see, the expression of what could be and the evidence that no one wishes to see. Art is personal yet lies to us, comforts and then betrays us. Art is whatever you see it to be and will then define the blind from the visionary. I have made the choice to paint, document and use visual expression i... [more]

(Image: Aaron Stansberry, Baby C, 2010, Oil, Spray, 36 x 36 x 1.5 inches; © Aaron Stansberry)   Aaron Stansberry (b. 1978, Portland, OR) For me, painting is soul therapy. I can tell my stories with brushes and spray cans, and my canvas can do nothing but listen and take it's punishment. The world of art is changing... becoming less business and more personal. Artists are turning to the streets to self-advertise, to speak their minds, or, hopefully, to at least put something thought-provoking... [more]

(Image: Bernard Dunaux, Abstraction III, 2012, Acrylic and enamel on canvas, 72 x 64; © Bernard Dunaux) Bernard Dunaux (b. Sydney, Australia) I am in a constant search of new forms of visual expression. My creative process originates with what I identify as a non-moment- when constant thought ceases, and shifts into movement and line, paint and canvas. My path is through unconsciousness of the gesture. Subject matter remains only a starting point, as the direct action of painting itself t... [more]

This new group show includes some really great work by a wide range of artists.  One of the more interesting shows that I have seen in this gallery, and really show the versitility of the work that gets displayed in this gallery.  The three pieces at the front of the gallery, by Carlos Donjuan and Rupert Garcia, particulary the piece entitled, Mao, 1977, by Garcia. These works really pull you into the gallery, and as you move toward the back the works continues to catch the eye.  The most inters... [more]

There are some great paintings by lessor known artists on display at the gallery right now. Walk around one of the modular walls and there are prints by Jasper Johns and a pristine example of Oldenburg's Profile Airflow. It is worth stopping by while the show is up. Many artists are in the show but surprisingly they all work very well together. There are some great Rupert Garcia's that I have never seen before.  A wide mix of work. [more]

(Image: Matthew Brandt, Bees of bees_2011,  Honey bees on paper (Gum Bichromate print), 43" x 73",  2011; © Matthew Brandt) Matthew Brandt (b. 1982, Los Angeles) Interested in physicality, process and landscape, Brandt’s ability to stretch the readings of an image, multiplying them both physically and conceptually, speaks directly to his interest in how images loom and meanings shift within a shared visual history. Whether silkscreening his own photograph of Half Dome in Yosemite—an iconic i... [more]
