20150415223410-sbma_1953 Beautiful Experiments  
by
László Moholy-Nagy at Santa Barbara Museum of Art July 5th - September 27th
Posted 8/2/15

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come puts forth a unique take on Moholy-Nagy's painted work with the incorporation of two interventionist pieces by other creators and a smattering of his own theatrical and photographic works. Due to the technology-based works’ expense and inherent complications, Moholy-Nagy reinvestigated painting as a medium to explore light and optics, while still drawing inspiration from these periodic experiments with other media. Perhaps somewhat mi... [more]

I have been looking for the right space and group of people to share my work with for the last 2 years. I have now found that space and am excited to share a new body of work that includes, the beginning of many new series of works. The planetary series, The Vision Quest series, the Lazer series, new miniature art books and of course some of my classics, Pixel Perfect, Angel Hearts and if time permits perhaps a new mermiad and new ballerina. The clock is ticking - Namaste. [more]

Laysa Issam al Fannan – Curious Blend of Art & Ego (Presently showing at Art Share LA in Los Angeles) This is possibly the second showing of Laysa’s art that I have found publically, showing presently in Los Angeles, with my first introduction to his work at a showing in Portland, Oregon last year. Having covered the international art scene for many years, I had never heard of this artist until recently, at first not quite knowing where he comes from or if Laysa Issam al Fannan is... [more]

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]

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. The 83-year-old artist, whose work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the MoMA, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others, was called to testify in the case against founder Brian Ramnarine, who is being tried for three counts of wire fraud.

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, unlikely elements... [more]

Posted by Robin Red on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 on Art Nerd. ‘THE HAPPY SHOW’ ENTRY   I love Sagmeister enormously. On entering the  MOCA space at the Pacific Design Center you are greeted by a racy infographic (read: line art of people doing it) which you will totally adore and immediately adorn your face with a giant smile (uh, if you’re cool like that). A few steps in and you may be instructed to remove clothing before proceeding into a journey of typographic, infographic and awesomegraphic wonder. Really… there are moments of goose-bu... [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.
