Posted 4/10/12

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]

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]

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]

(Excerpt from "Justified" by Catherine Wagley, published in Daily Serving, April 2010.  Found on   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... [more]

Looking Back at Whiteread's U.S. Debut  
3/31/10 Posted 3/31/10

In signature works like “Ghost” and “House,” the British sculptor Rachel Whiteread made plaster casts of the interiors of London homes. Monumental yet ethereal, these works addressed Minimalist sculpture with polite deference while striking up bold conversations about urban preservation. (“House,” a public-art commission made in a condemned East London terrace house and exhibited in situ, was controversial enough that a local council destroyed it after just a few months.) Ms. Whiteread’s lates... [more]

Mallary in Chinatown: Closing This Week  
3/31/10 Posted 3/31/10

THE BOX 977 Chung King RoadFebruary 6–April 3 One wonders how an artist can so firmly seem to enter history and yet so quietly seem to leave it. The late Robert Mallary, the current subject of an exhibition at The Box, seems to be just such an artist. Some of his contemporaries were more lucky in their late recoveries, like Lee Bontecou, who lived to see her own reconsideration. Unfortunately Mallary, who died in 1997, did not survive to see this moment’s attempt at revival. The artist’s obituary, penned b... [more]

Posted 12/13/09

  The dynamic and eclectic body of work in the CAFAM retrospective of Dora De Larios celebrates 50 years of the artist’s work and life. A native Angelino, Larios grew up in a downtown neighborhood where Japanese and Mexican cultures co-existed. Her exposure to diverse cultures, religions, and art runs like an artery through Larios’ own work that embraces the viewer in a rich tapestry that delicately weaves the earthly and the surreal, the utterly fantastical and the escape into reverie. The... [more]
