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 Select gallery artists - galerie102 - November 22nd - December 28th Sat, 30 Aug 2014 19:41:57 +0000 Craig Stockwell, Amaranth Ehrenhalt - galerie102 - October 4th - November 9th Sat, 30 Aug 2014 19:31:38 +0000 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.

The works included here and <a href="" target="_blank">online</a> challenge and exceed how Filipino bodies, affects, and processes are conventionally understood <em>and</em> how they are entangled with other queer bodies and practices virtually and offline.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">The Internet, which is seemingly boundless in its sublime scope and its spatial dimensions, is ironically replete with social and communal boundaries: some cohere normative modes of communality, while others de-center or unsettle real-time or real-world social relations and expectations. Even at its most evanescent, the virtual is never detached from the offline world and vice versa. <em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> starts with the premise that, as Jos&eacute; Mu&ntilde;oz writes in his book <em>Cruising Utopia</em>, &ldquo;&lsquo;queerness&rsquo; allows us to question or even feel that, in this globalized digital and new media present, something is amiss ... something just doesn't feel right, but that's alright.&rdquo;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> is a timely exhibition in that Filipino queer digital and new media cultures continue to be an understudied field, despite the saturation of digital and new media technologies within the Philippines and throughout the diaspora. Though there have been Filipino Internet ethnographies prior to Web 2.0 as well as seminal studies of race online, Filipino queer digital and new media cultures represent a highly focused area of cultural phenomenon that is in need of intellectual and creative interventions.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Many questions are ripe for exploration: How does the exchange of information within the Filipino diaspora via the Internet unsettle or perhaps affirm Western notions of gender and sexuality? How might we think of the ontologies of digital and media technology as always already queer? How do Filipino queer digital and new media practices overlap other queer communities of color? How do we study these queer diasporic digital entanglements? How might we deploy <em>queer</em> as an analytic frame to discuss the forms which content takes&mdash;forms that go beyond the expected, that make us scratch our heads, that leave us feeling unsettled or that something is indeed amiss?</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">The <em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> exhibition at Culver Center of the arts features work by Eliza Barrios, Kiam Marcelo Junio, Kat Larson, Miguel Libarnes, Gina Osterloh, Jeffrey Augustine Songco, and Ronaldo Wilson. Works by additional artists may be found online at <a href="" target="_blank"></a>.</p> <p class="p2" style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Starting from the perspectives of Filipinos around the world, the Center for Art and Thought harnesses the potential of digital and new media technologies in order to foster dialogues between artists, scholars, and the broader public.&nbsp; A web-based nonprofit organization, we believe that the convergence between art and critical thought is a crucial way to generate new modes of knowledge production and creative and critical lenses for understanding and transforming global conditions.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2" style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> is presented at UC Riverside&rsquo;s ARTSblock&rsquo;s Culver Center of the Arts. The exhibition has been curated by Jan Christian Bernabe, the Operations, New Media and Curatorial Director for the Center for Art and Thought, along with assistance from Clare Counihan and Matthew Andrews. Support for the exhibition has been provided by the California Institute of Contemporary Arts, UC Riverside&rsquo;s Queer Lab, UC Riverside&rsquo;s Department of Media and Cultural Studies, and donors to the Center for Art and Thought.
