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 - July 28th
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 Lyn... [more]

Founders Keepers Jasper Johns, Photo by Brendan McDermid/Reuters Sculptor and cacoepy-vigilante Jasper Johns testified before a federal court in Manhattan on Thursday, stating that no, he did not authorize anyone to reproduce his sculpture, and it’s pronounced ˈraʊʃənbɜːɡ, btw.

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]

By Jamie Solis Vintage films are known to have an intrinsic cult following. Maybe it’s because they remind us of the matte simplicity that’s fading in our digital society, or it could be the growing appreciation for classic features—when storylines were still unique and theatrics took fearless risks. Either way, we find ourselves attracted to old school cinema and the bold propaganda-esque designs that adorn their artwork. Regardless the reason for our fantastic obsession, posters from motion fi... [more]

I was recently driving in a thriving, mostly immigrant, neighborhood of Los Angeles. While stopped at a light I saw the following sign: Tax Preparation /Travel Agency. It was not unified corporate branding by a long shot. It was, however, two businesses which the investment in a single computer might make possible. Categorically it was a funny space. No one likes taxes and everyone wants to go on vacation. A perfect case of opposites attract. It reminded me of the parings of surprising, unlikel... [more]

An implication of age compels us to craft histories for the artworks in A Handful of Dust. Their materials suggest a simpler time—products of earth, of metal, of wood—and their shapes imply function. Natural hues of a limited and subdued palette pervade, as if these artworks are remains all found in one place, all from one civilization.

(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]
