And yet, they offer themselves i<em>n</em> <em>extremis</em> from one another, antipodes as much in their reality as in their promises.

The unsettling sounds evoke sex and violence but are actually the men remembering the sounds they heard their partners make while giving birth. </span></p> <p class="p1"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Hour Between Dog and Wolf (2013) by Abinadi Meza [Texas], begins with a journey by train, an ambiguous digital woman&rsquo;s voice describes your experience to you.

The exhibition will debut new monochromatic paintings and other meditative works.</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Often starting with a found object and covering it with stretched canvas, Jennifer Boysen&rsquo;s paintings offer the viewer a moment where painting becomes structural and the structure becomes a painting. Boysen works mostly in large format, finding ways to construct the shaped and textured canvases in her studio much like a sculptor. Hammering copper, pushing textured medium through canvas, altering stretchers with wood and aluminum, Boysen sets up the field for her paintings in varied and hidden ways.<br /> <br /> The work uses a variety of media to arrive at a place that both reconciles and concedes with the concept of painting and how it&rsquo;s derived from and functions in the world. This conversation takes place under the guise of an obsession with process and materials, revealed by an obstruction of how the image came to be through using the pictorial structure as receiver, while referencing common techniques and gestures, such as photography, sculpture and digital media. The result of this process within Boysen's work illustrates communicative conflicts and meditative rests while acting as a mirror for that which is both outside and inside of the work.<br /> <br /> The objects in the most recent body of work at Cherry and Martin hover between painting and sculpture, by both the manipulation of form and application of materials. Installed on the wall as traditional two dimensional works of art, the forms and materials are drawn from a variety of everyday objects and visual observation. Some of these objects are appropriated directly while others simply inform the fabrication of the structure. The paint is mostly egg tempera paint made using a variety of traditional and non-traditional pigments. The richness inherent to tempera as a medium, mixed with the sculptural form, creates a sort of visual absorption evoking a meditative quality, thus giving these objects or forms an alternate function or power.<br /> <br /> Boysen received her MFA from Hunter College, CUNY, New York and her BFA from University of Iowa, Iowa City. She has participated in recent exhibitions at Kate Werble Gallery, New York; Frank Elbaz Gallery, Paris; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Night Gallery, Los Angeles and Los Angeles Nomadic Division.</p> Mon, 01 Sep 2014 09:29:13 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Select gallery artists - galerie102 - November 22nd - December 28th Sat, 30 Aug 2014 19:41:57 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Craig Stockwell, Amaranth Ehrenhalt - galerie102 - October 4th - November 9th Sat, 30 Aug 2014 19:31:38 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Stas Orlovski - Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) - November 2nd 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Join artist Stas Orlovski in conversation with Steve Roden (sound), Beau Leduc (post-production), and Los Angeles Times Staff Writer Carolina Miranda.
