20140714210225-4fa39f2fa2b7e5dffcb2d90c00ba5ddd Simryn Gill's Spare and Stunning Photographs of Decay  
by
Simryn Gill at VAROLA March 18th - July 24th
Posted 7/14/14

Los Angeles Times Review By: Leah Ollman Simryn Gill's quietly stunning photographic series, "My Own Private Angkor," focuses on a housing development in a seaside town in Malaysia. The complex was built in the 1980s, but never occupied. Over time looters have stripped the site of salable metals. Surfaces have eroded. Dried leaves pile up on the floors and vines creep through the window openings. Gill's pictures, largely of abandoned domestic interiors, speak of both promise and ruin, of p... [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.

Judy Pfaff at Azusa Pacific University Galleries October 21st, 2013 - December 6th, 2013
Posted 10/25/13

I entered the empty Bob Bullock Gallery space on Azusa Pacific's West Campus at 7:55 a few nights ago to see what might be meant by a Judy Pfaff exhibition titled, "The Art of Flower Arranging." To either side, the long walls of the gallery were covered from the eye level of a child into the open, framing architecture of the ceiling, with bands of photographs in series. The content of these varied from what appeared to be the documentation of bone arrangement in taxonomy and studio sho... [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]

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]

Mike Brodie has captured something raw and honest in his series of 30 photographs on display in Los Angeles at M+B.  The gallery, consisting of a converted bungalow and modern annex, provides an intimate look at the heroic historian's three-year journey as a cross-country stowaway, hitchhiker, and pedestrian.  The title of the exhibition, A Period of Juvenile Prosperity, conjures the current and all-too-familiar entitlement of youth.  Brodie and his travel companions, however, embody a life not of...

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.
