Zauner says of her work:</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">"In my paintings, I deal with architecture and light, the transitions between light and space, and the transparency of materiality. During my 2008 scholarship stay in the Villa Massimo in Rome...what particularly influenced me was the Roman light and the openness of the buildings, their architectural play of light, air, and shade, as well as the unbelievable easiness and elegance of the millennia-old buildings. One of my favorite buildings was the Pantheon, so I have picked up many elements of its architecture in my works, such as the protruding columns and the play of light.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">"The fact that I started extending my works beyond the canvas to the walls is certainly also due to the influence of such magnificent pieces of art as the garden painted in the Villa Livia, or the ceiling fresco in the Sistine Chapel. By fitting the canvas into the respective room situations, my paintings gain the character of an installation."</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>This light brunch is free. However, we do ask that you RSVP by calling 951.684.7111 to help us ensure proper seating arrangements and refreshments.

With these new paintings Podoll places greater emphasis on drawing &ndash; marks are built up layer upon layer from a white ground: blurry airbrush lines, transparent washy brushstrokes and heavy impasto piles all interweave to create a tapestry of mark-making. Within this densely layered space Podoll paints austere floating objects that act as portals and serve to create tension between themselves and the layers of marks. The paintings become energized through the bravado and angularity of brushwork and intensity of color and contrast.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Podoll </strong>(Seattle, WA, 1972) lives and works in San Francisco. His work has been included in exhibitions at Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA (2010); <em>You Can Heal Your Life!</em>, curated by Emma Gray at Circus Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2010); <em>Without Sun</em>, curated by Carole Ann Klonarides at Christopher Grimes Gallery (2007); Headlands Center for the Arts, Fort Barry, CA (2003); and University of Iowa Museum of Art, Iowa City, IA (2002).</span></p> Wed, 28 Aug 2013 15:38:07 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Carlos Bunga - Christopher Grimes Gallery - July 5th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The South Gallery will feature new paintings by <strong>Carlos Bunga</strong>, made as a part of a dialogue with his recent site-specific installation at the gallery. Photographs of this work, <em>Future Anterior</em>, were printed and used as a foundation on which to make the paintings. The paintings act as a more permanent reference to the structure which was by nature ephemeral. The manner in which paint was applied to the exterior of the original installation is maintained in these works, providing continuity and shared formal sensibility.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Bunga</strong> (Porto, Portugal, 1976) lives and works in Barcelona. After studying Fine Arts at the Escola Superior de Arte e Design in Caldas da Rainha in Portugal, Bunga first attracted international attention with his work at the contemporary art biennial Manifesta 5 in San Sebastian, Spain (2004). Since then, has had solo shows of his work at Museu Serralves, Porto, Portugal (2012); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2011); Miami Art Museum, Miami, FL (2009); and Museo de Arte Contemporanéa de Vigo, Spain (2009). His work is in the collections of such institutions as Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Serralves Foundation, Porto, Portugal; and Museo d'art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Barcelona, Spain.</span></p> Mon, 17 Jun 2013 18:14:28 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Jasmine Worth - La Luz de Jesus Gallery - July 5th, 2013 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: small;" size="2"><strong>Jasmine Worth</strong> crafts scenes from fairytales gone awry—swirling seamlessly between the sweet and surreal, inevitably dipping into the valley of the morbid. Jasmine studied formally at Studio 2nd Street in southern CA, and earned her BFA from the <em>Laguna College of Art and Design</em>. While she possesses the credentials, the product of her toils clearly pours from the cobwebbed corners of her mind, not the classroom. Her paintings—a cabaret of vibrant hues—are a blend of soft textures and colorful characters, juxtaposed against gloomy themes. Created in her home of San Diego, Jasmine combines dark influences and subtle-yet-serious undertones with raw artistic talent and a rarely seen creativity. Her work exudes a strong bearing of individuality, manifested through characters that speak almost vocally and give a new element of depth to an otherwise two dimensional medium. Each scene tells a story and every story is as diverse in emotion as it is in appearance. <br /> <br /> In <strong><em>Cultus Sanguine</em></strong><em>,</em> Worth explores the connection between blood and life, birth and death, and the idea that all is one, even when seeming opposite. Playing with the theme of the connection of all, the ideas of birth of life from death, cycles, energy being neither created nor destroyed, as above so below are symbolically represented throughout the series. <br /> <br /> This is <strong>Jasmine Worth</strong>'s fourth feature exhibition at <em>La Luz de Jesus, </em>and has sold out all of her work each time.</span></span></p> Tue, 25 Jun 2013 10:53:43 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Mel Weiner - La Luz de Jesus Gallery - July 5th, 2013 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: small;" size="2">The mangled, distorted and contorted qualities �of the boxer have always fascinated <strong>Mel Weiner</strong>. As a child, he'd watch <em>The Friday Night Fights</em> �on a black and white feed from his parents' TV in Echo Park. These fights etched a permanent spot in the young artist's psyche that infiltrated his creative outpu t for the next half century.<br /> <br /> Mel graduated from <em>Chouinard Art School</em> in 1971 and worked as a billboard painter and a scenic artist for movies and television, which trained him to capture a likeness that could be easily identified at great distance and in fast traffic. <br /> <br /> With <strong><em>Esther Milkfat and Other Characters</em></strong> �Weiner has rendered an illustrated expose of Hollywood's past through a lens on the outskirts of Tinseltown. Celebrity hanger-ons from the Tabloid Golden Age exude a playfully grotesque demeanor that's more <em>Frolic Room</em> than <em>Sardi's</em>.�In each of these skillful caricatures, Mel has surpassed satiric cartooning to breathe real life into his line work. <br /> <br /> </span></span><span face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: small;" size="2">This is <strong>Mel Weiner</strong>'s first feature exhibition at <em>La Luz de Jesus, </em>having previously exhibited at <em>Billy Shire Fine Arts</em>. </span></span><span face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: small;" size="2"><br /> </span><strong><br /></strong></span></span></p> Tue, 25 Jun 2013 10:55:31 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Derek Harrison - La Luz de Jesus Gallery - July 5th, 2013 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: small;" size="2">The lines, shapes, colors and forms that the female figure presents are about as inspiring as it can get. When that is coupled with one of the most interesting and amazing places on earth, Los Angeles, the possibilities are infinite. This body of work has been in the making for the past couple of years. Over this period of time I've been able to paint the wonderful environment of LA with all of its unique locations and the very unique individuals that inhabit it. <em><strong>L.A. Woman</strong></em> is a series of works that encompass two ends of the spectrum when it comes to contemporary art. The purely visual, which yields a visceral response. One that is very powerful and is what makes art such a unique and amazing universal language. All of the locations and models in the pieces are carefully sought out and are what I find to be incredibly inspiring. LA lends itself to this ideal perfectly. The other element of my work is one that aims to convey female empowerment. The figures whom are painted are representing an array of emotions. The works are left as open narratives to be interpreted by the viewer. My hope is that through this engaging experience the viewer is part of the work and connects with it in a way that leaves them intrigued and most importantly, inspired. </span></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: small;" size="2"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><strong><em>L.A.

The phrase calls attention to differences between the current state of things and the previous. It can be understood as meaning "acknowledging the difference between the two" or (more succinctly) as "acknowledging differences."�<br /> <br /> <strong>Click Mort</strong>'s work centers on indiscreet modifications to existing porcelain figurines. Each piece is a unique consolidation of two �or more previously unrelated figures, with extensive cutting, sculpting, sanding, and painting required to unify them into a new, seamless whole. The result is kitsch resurrected in a still vaguely familiar but somewhat less cozy form. Click's recapitated figures have found their way into several of the premeire collections of post-pop art via exhibitions in Pasadena, Los Angeles and Waxahachie, Texas.�The overwhelming majority of his patrons collect multiple pieces.<br /><br />Mr. Mort's formal training consists of a single high school ceramics class, where the tendency of his pieces to explode when fired eventually led to him being banned from the kiln.�He has since opted to work only with pre-fired materials.<br /> <br /> <strong><em>Mutatis Mutandis</em></strong> is <strong>Click Mort</strong>'s third feature exhibition at <em>La Luz de Jesus</em>. </span></span><span face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: small;" size="2"> </span></span> <span face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong><span style="font-size: small;" size="2"><br /> </span></strong></span></span></p> Tue, 25 Jun 2013 10:58:53 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Dennis McNett - AR4T Gallery - July 6th, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p><strong>Opening Reception:</strong><br /><strong> Saturday July 6, 2013 – 6 to 9pm </strong><br /><strong> </strong><br />Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow is eager to announce the return of the Wolfbat Tribe and the art of Dennis McNett to Laguna Beach. Wolfbat Meditations is McNett’s second show at Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow – a follow up to his 2012 solo exhibition Wolfbat Shamans and The Whale of Gratitude.<br /> <br />Wolfbat Meditations continues on the theme of gratitude, serenity and introspection. Dennis: “Starting the morning by breathing, writing, and clearing the mind opens the day to gratitude, imagination, awareness and clarity. I focus on waves, the pushing pulling swelling swirling water, the salty air, the course sand slowly warming from the sun, and patterns across the sea. Soon thoughts wander to kinetic energies, spirit beasts, stories, and structures.” Work will include a large selection of Dennis McNett’s woodcut prints, sculptural forms, wall installations, paper collage pieces and masks in mythical and animalistic creations.</p> Mon, 09 Sep 2013 05:43:50 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Adriana Salazar - Cal State Fullerton Grand Central Art Center - July 6th, 2013 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Is there an end to our existence? Can we be separated from our bodies and be transformed into something else? Adriana Salazar's work has continued to revolve around these questions in different ways. This is why the realm of mortuary customs appeals to her: it presents numerous ways to approach the ultimate unknown.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Her past series of works have attempted to bring inanimate objects to life; crystalize human actions into mechanical devices; worked to blur the line that separates the natural and the artificial. Death has been an ever-present part of her work, understood in a broader sense, in her own words, "I want to address death as a dare to the certainties of knowledge, and as a challenge to deeply rooted traditions. Thus, my work has taken its course transforming mechanical actions, obsolete objects, fading plants and passing life into installations and objects that could become questioning situations themselves."</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">For this current series, created during a two-month residency at Grand Central Art Center, the artist desired to go deeper into that moment of transition between life and death, finding out as much as she could about what happens with our bodies, with our consciousness and with everything we build around the death of others. In her words, "I found, amongst other things, that there is an aesthetics of transition, that there are rituals trying to maintain life after death, and laws which govern our bodies, even when we are not fully present. I also found out that there are transitional techniques and an intricate industry around them."</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Some of these techniques of transition have the purpose of dematerializing the body - its physical presence, associated to life and its impermanence - replacing it with a different kind of immaterial presence. In the crematory, a compartment ignites at a very high temperature until the body is almost entirely dissolved. In order to secure the transparency of this transition, all particles of bone are carefully separated from any other solid object that might exist in our remains. These foreign bodies - implants, replacements, metal bodily parts, and every sign of our artificial self - must be removed. All that is left are bones, which are then reduced to the size of grains of sand. These remains are kept in homes, spread at symbolic locations, interned at traditional burials site, or used in other creative manners. The artificial parts, on the other hand, are usually recycled for their metals or tossed away.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Salazar has decided to rescue as many cremated artificial body parts possible. These parts remain as solid as they were inside their bodies and are nevertheless considered residue. She found their value in this very ambiguity. They embody the question of the status of our own existence on a physical level: their materiality creates confusion between those objects as parts of a physical body and our own body, thus opening the gap between our certainties and uncertainties, beyond the matter of human death itself.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The simple presence of these objects puts the status of life into question, allowing us to see, on one hand, the death of usage and value as something applicable to our own bodies. They allow us to see, on the other hand, the possibility of our existence as purely impermanent, earthly and physical. They allow us to see our possible becoming.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Bogota, Colombia based artist Adriana Salazar, GCAC Artist in Residence, May 6 – July 7, 2013.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><b>Thursday, June 27th, 7-9pm<br /><a href="http://www.artslant.com/la/events/show/283896-california-pacific-triennial-artists-panel" target="_blank">2013 CALIFORNIA-PACIFIC TRIENNIAL, ARTISTS PANEL</a> <br />The Yost Theater, Santa Ana</b></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><b>Thursday, June 27th, following panel<br />NOTHING ELSE LEFT, GCAC SNEAK PREVIEW TOUR<br />Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana</b></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><b>Sunday, June 30, 2013, 11am-5pm<br /><a href="http://www.artslant.com/la/events/show/271068-2013-california-pacific-triennial" target="_blank">2013 CALIFORNIA-PACIFIC TRIENNIAL</a>, PUBLIC OPENING<br />Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach</b></span></p> Wed, 26 Jun 2013 07:50:02 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Group Show - Night Gallery - July 6th, 2013 12:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p><span size="1" style="font-size: xx-small;">July 6th, 2013</span></p> <p><span size="1" style="font-size: xx-small;"><i>Shipwrecked</i>, a KCHUNG RADIO festival fundraiser hosted by NIght Gallery</span></p> <p><span size="1" style="font-size: xx-small;">12-9 pm</span></p> <p><span size="1" style="font-size: xx-small;">2276 East 16th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90021 <span color="#333333" face="Arial" style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial;"><b><br /> </b></span></span></p> <p><span size="1" style="font-size: xx-small;"><b><a href="http://nightgallery.ca/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://nightgallery.ca/</a></b><br /></span></p> <p><span size="1" color="#333333" face="Arial" style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial; font-size: xx-small;"><b><a href="http://kchungradio.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://kchungradio.org/</a></b></span></p> <p dir="ltr"></p> <p dir="ltr">_~</p> <p dir="ltr">_~ )_)_~</p> <p dir="ltr">)_))_))_)</p> <p dir="ltr">_!__!__!_</p> <p dir="ltr">\______t/</p> <div></div> <p dir="ltr">Steep your ears in the sea of ether, and witness a wide range of musical acts, performance art, Tarro Readings,  wares on sale by local artists.

Figurative thrones, elegant scepters, and ancestral figures actively contributed to the formation and expansion of a highly influential Luba state from the 18th to early 20th centuries. The exhibition includes a kneeling female figure holding a bowl by the celebrated artist known as the <em>Buli Master</em>, as well as the Royal Museum&rsquo;s most iconic mask recalling the Luba culture hero&mdash;on loan for the first time ever. <em>Shaping Power</em> presents the richness and complexity of Luba arts, and lends insight into a world renowned African aesthetic and cultural legacy.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">A contemporary installation entitled <em>Congo: Shadow of the Shadow</em> (2005) by Aim&eacute; Mpane, on loan from the Smithsonian Institution&rsquo;s National Museum of African Art, presents a gripping commentary on re-shaping power during the colonial period using the play of light and shadow, substance and ethereality. In addition, a bead-laden Luba memory device from a private collection suggests how the past is continually re-imagined through the eyes of the present.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Shaping Power</em> marks the inauguration of a gallery and educational program dedicated to the arts of Africa at LACMA.
