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]

Robert Lazzarini's Dangerous Distortions  
4/30/10 Posted 4/30/10

(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]

Delarios_moose Dora De Larios retrospective at Craft and Folk Art Museum  
Dora Delarios at Craft and Folk Art Museum September 27th, 2009 - January 10th, 2010
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]

Michael Rashkow 12.26.07   Author: Annie Buckley 11.16.07-01.05.08 LAXART The birth of photography was marked by a necessarily symbiotic relationship between art and science, one that has reemerged in recent decades. This exhibition of new works by Michael Rashkow quietly points to the resurgence. In comparison with the supersize, brightly colored, or otherwise dazzling photographs in many galleries, this work is relatively subdued. Yet the power of the exhibition, which includes eight phot...

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]
