Aran Cravey Gallery is pleased to present A to B\, a sol o exhibition of paintings and drawings from Los Angeles based artist Joe Ho yt.

\n

The paintings and drawings exhibi ted in the gallery depict various locations in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.

\n

The works capture the construc ted environment in which we live through the filter of memory and perceptio n\, revealing only the fragments that remain as our visual references. In t he six drawings presented\, the artist explores the Central Valley communit ies to be linked by the first phase of California's controversial new high- speed rail system. Below is a text by artist Amy Howden-Chapman based on Ho yt’s process of gathering imagery along this potential path.

\n

 

\n

A to B is from here to there. 

\n

Movi ng from A to B is moving past a car into a dark bush. 

\n

A is walking to find a scene. A is finding a sce ne and observing the scene. 

\n

B is multiple points\, in ink on paper. B is A rendered in image. 

\n

A is the details of a stranger’s co lor- it is just there in front of you. You grow familiar with A. B is all y ou have left when A has left.

\n

A is abstraction\, B is representation\, and then there is moving between them.

\n

There is A- suburban infrastructure and there is B - urban infrastructure. This path from A-B is a road. The path from A-B is a train track. The path from A- B is time. 

\n

A is a drawing. A is enlarged and it becomes B.

\n

B is a pa inting.

\n

A is a watery wash. B is a graphic mark. Looking back though B\, we see the remains of A\, that sunset stain\, sadness stain\, staring.

\n

A is architectural renderings\, A is stenography\, A is new to pography. 

\n

B is the influenc es of A corrupted by the hand and eye. 

\n

A is a full view of a building. B is a corner of A. B has rough edges. 

\n

A is an anecdote th at ends in mid-sentence.

\n

B i s your memory of A.

\n

A is lig ht on a building.

\n

B is A cap tured\, made flat\, given to you.
