20140505213706-mike_kelley_aah_youth Some Closing Thoughts on the Mike Kelley Retrospective (MOCA Geffen, Los Angeles)  
by
Mike Kelley at MOCA Geffen Contemporary March 31st, 2014 - July 28th, 2014
Posted 9/1/14

To borrow a thought from Deleuze and Guattari, art is not chaos, but a composition of chaos that makes possible a wide range of unpredictable new emotions and ideas. It pushes at the borders of the imagination, inviting new ways of seeing, and sharping our capacities for critical reflection. Truly powerful art may even change how we perceive our world, and re-situate our agency within it. The Mike Kelley retrospective (currently on view at LA MoCA), reminds me of a quote by filmmaker David Lynch... [more]

Michael Gittes at Prohibition Gallery January 4th, 2014 - February 4th, 2014
Posted 1/28/14

Prohibition Gallery is a boutique gallery on W. Washington Boulevard, sharing the Culver City Arts District with other galleries such as Corey Helford Gallery and Hinge Modern (where I have previously reviewed shows and interviewed artists). With its white walls, concrete floor and barred windows, Prohibition Gallery stands in stark contrast to its neighbors. Being in the small space feels intimate. The gallery's ambiance is one of edgy youth (the gallery opened recently, in 2011) and a sense... [more]

A Boy Scout Jamboree At Subliminal Projects http://www.laimyours.com/46608/a-boy-scout-jamboree-at-subliminal-projects/ " Duane Paul’s huge sculpture of various colored, fragmented scouts have similar effects. Paul’s piece hints at a less overt theme in the show, one that gets outside of the organization’s anti-gay agenda: minorities in American boy scouts have only existed on the margins. His colorful and quietly confrontational figures hit every element of the show–rainbows, black bodies, whit... [more]

June 17, 2013, Previews Objet Trouvé: Jerry Shevick's Amazing Nudie Pin-Up Show By Phil Tarley   Tue, Jun 18, 2013 What looks like the faded slides of one prolific, if amateur photographer, is really Shevick's heavily curated pickings of found objects in the photo sections of flea markets and estate sales. Opens June 22 at Artist's Corner. At the nexus where vintage photography meets pictorialism, photo artist Jerry Shevick has staked out a new territory that somehow seems sweetly nostalgic and oddly familiar. A r... [more]

(Image: Jerry Shevick, Floating Hair, 2012, Photography, 17" x 22", 24" x 36"; © Jerry Shevick)   Jerry Shevick (b. 1959, Baltimore) Jerry Shevick’s new photographic series is based on slides, decades and often over a half century old. They are images from his past, as well as many others.  They’ve been re-shot and re-imagined.  As the digital revolution rolls on, we won’t remember in the same ways.  There is no fading of the image, no lens flares, no developing errors.  Our past is as crystal clear as...

(Image: Peter Worsley, Picnic, 2009, Oil on canvas, 16 x 20 x 0,5 inches; © Peter Worsley)   Peter Worsley (b. 1929, London, England) I see myself as kind of an old soul and a romantic at heart. The subjects I choose to paint have some sort of nostalgic calling - ordinary people doing everyday things at interesting places. Often the result reflects the human comedy. Each painting begins with a careful study of it's composition. Then, through a evolutionary process, often with moments of spon... [more]

(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]

Los Angeles) I  am  a native of Los Angeles and a self taught painter and photographer.  In my paintings, emotion comes first, often very subtle. I want the viewer to want to return to the images multiple times to take a closer look.  My style and work is reflective and quiet; quite the opposite of my personality.
