_______f Paintings by Zhonggui Shi  
by
Zhonggui Shi at Bamboo Lane Gallery September 11th, 2010 - October 31st, 2010
Posted 9/21/10

Mr. Shi paints Tibetan landscapes in the traditional Chinese manner of ink and wash painting on rice paper, but with extremely vivid colors and in a somewhat abstract style. Animals of the highland plains such as Yaks are silhouetted against the vibrant colors of dawn and dusk and highlight the scale of the landscape throughout the four seasons and migratory birds populate the lower marshlands and give voice to the endless silence of the horizons.  The paintings capture a sense of both the freed...

Harrington_bicycle_web Mark Harrington: From ArtScene Magazine by Roberta Carasso  
by
Mark Harrington at Edward Cella Art+Architecture May 26th, 2010 - July 10th, 2010
Posted 5/28/10

The following was written by Roberta Carasso for ArtScene Magazine.  June, 2010 Mark Harrington By Roberta Carasso         The structural base of Mark Harrington’s exhibition begins with the visceral quality of Abstract Expressionism and the reductive simplicity of Minimalism.  Into the mix, he adds depth of field photography.  The rigor of working with three distinct visual disciplines yields a formidable body of work, a dynamic interplay of coalescence and contradictions that catch viewers...

This past Friday I was fortunate enough to visit that amazing new show "Illumanotic" of visionary artist Android Jones. This show runs from March 4 through May 4, 2010 at the imaginative 99 High Art Collective on the quaint Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice Beach. The exhibit is mostly composed of electric dependent works of art. These are glass images with light boxes projected through the back. Through his amazing use of color and light, Jones creates extraordinary images which play on your psyche. Jo... [more]

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]

Posted 10/4/09

I saw these artists when they were a part of "Heroes for Autism" a fund raiser for "Autism Speaks" at the Avalon in Hollywood. That was an extraordinary show and I can't wait to see what new works these artists have created since.  I regretted not buying a piece by Casey Metcalfe then, so I am hoping it will be there. This show is absolutely worth a visit. The work is both collectible and different from anything else out there. Not to mention it benefits an amazing cause. [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]

I went to India once.  Saw the most extreme poverty and heart-wrenching crush of humanity I’ve ever experienced and I really have no desire to go back.  Having said that, I did come away appreciating some weird intangibles about the place.  The monkeys that would steal your stuff, the betel spit, the orgasm of color, the waves of people and beggars, the poop.  Oh the poop.  People crapping in the streets, wading in rivers of excrement to fill their water jugs, crapping on the roadside and waving at pa...

I was really excited to see PART2ISM'S work after hearing so much about it from England... especially after seeing it in the London Street Art Anthology (check it out on amazon) - This is his (Part2ism) first time here in north america apparently... the other work in the show - while not 'street art' was solid - kind of incredible actually... very different from anything I've ever seen - anywhere... but it somehow works fabulously together. just get up out of your chair and GO SEE THE SHOW!

by
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]

Posted 6/11/10

Judith is the reason to see this show. His assemblages-collages are acid-etched memories peeled right from the soul of an exhaustive artist. He's always there, Judith, unshakeable, wise, but mostly, as light showing us the way to something funny and beating and alive. The relatively small amount of represented work secures my feelings about how good he really is as I can't remember much from the rest of the show. I wish they'd collect his miniature houses and make an entire neighborhood of them. I... [more]
