Monte Vista Projects is please d to present The New Retail Mycology\, an exhibition of new photog raphs by Benjamin Lord. The project explores notions of the made and the fo und\, and how personal experiences are constructed and demolished in an age saturated by advertising.
 \;
 \; \; \; \;&n bsp\; \; \; \; The photographs depict elaborate but ephemeral s culptural tableaux\, \;conjoining the intentionality of highly wrought craft objects made by the artist with a range of scavenged materials whose provenance is more obscure. \; Reversing the customary assumption of a photographer&rsquo\;s studio as a place of rigid authorial control\, Lord&r squo\;s illusionary assemblages depict tenuous arrangements that walk a lin e between earnest handicraft and absurdist satire. Mushrooms and fungi appe ar throughout the project as both physical materials and as a deliriously m ixed metaphor for spontaneous organic generation\, the corporate branding o f psychedelic experience\, and the limits of scientific knowledge. Combinin g influences from advertising imagery\, Japanese flower arranging\, and the freeform juxtapositions of the internet\, these images extend Lord&rsquo\; s longstanding interest in the illusionistic space of &ldquo\;sculptures&rd quo\; that exist only in the photographic imagination. Presented in candy-c olored painted aluminum frames\, Lord&rsquo\;s miniature worlds chart a spa ce of freedom where the deliberate and the accidental mingle imperceptibly.

Shoshana Wayne Gallery is plea sed to present Film Quilts\, a solo exhibition of new work by Sabrina Gschw andtner. This is the artist&rsquo\;s first exhibition with the gallery. Fil m Quilts features fifteen quilts constructed from celluloid and presented i n framed light boxes. Gschwandtner&rsquo\;s work engages viewers on multipl e levels\; from a distance\, bold textile patterns glow like light filtered through stained glass. Up close\, individual strips of film converge to fo rm narratives about materiality\, labor\, and handcraft.

Since 2 009\, Gschwandtner has been working from a collection of 16 mm films that w ere de-accessioned from the Fashion Institute of Technology and given to he r by Anthology Film Archives. These short films\, dated between 1950 and 19 80\, are educational documentaries about textiles as art\, craft\, fashion\ , military camouflage\, political expression\, and scientific metaphor. The artist makes new meaning out of this source material by cutting and sewing it into configurations based on popular American quilt motifs.
 \ ;
Gschwandtner&rsquo\;s work connects experimental filmmaking methods to the forgotten history of early cinema\, in which cameras were constructe d from modified sewing machine parts and women with agile sewing fingers we re employed as editors. Images of hands at work &ndash\; weaving\, dyeing c loth\, feeding fabric into machines &ndash\; are repeated throughout the ex hibition\, reminders not only of the artist&rsquo\;s labor and the handcraf t history of film editing\, but also of the tactile quality of film. To fur ther underscore her treatment of film not as a projected image but as a ser ies of tactile prints\, the artist freely uses countdown leader\, her own f ootage scrawled with film lab notations\, and film she has marked with lith ography ink. In each work\, Gschwandtner creates a dialogue between the ima ges inside the frames and the symbolic and historical meanings of the quilt patterns\, thereby engaging the notion of filmic suture in a reconfigured form. By pairing the centuries-old craft of quilting with the near-obsolete medium of celluloid\, Gschwandtner presents viewers with a new kind of mon tage.
 \;
Sabrina Gschwandtner received a BA from Brown Unive rsity and an MFA from Bard College. Her work has been exhibited in the Unit ed States as well as internationally at institutions including the Smithson ian American Art Museum in Washington DC\; the Museum of Arts and Design in New York\; and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Her film quilts c an be found in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Mu seum\, the RISD Museum\, the Philbrook Museum\, and the Carl and Marilynn T homa Art Foundation\, among many other public and private collections world wide. The artist lives and works in New York.

Ekundayo is a Hawaii based art ist whose mixed media work harnesses the visual power of the subconscious t hrough hyperbole and juxtaposition. Owing to his mastery of a surreal grote sque and his early beginnings as a graffiti artist\, Ekundayo's work is mon umental and larger than life. The artist's intuitive recombinations are unc anny and haunting\, and betray an understanding of life's most aberrant and disturbing dimensions. Ekundayo channels the sordid and the abject\, but m obilizes the imaginary to attenuate its ravages through fantasy. The artist combines the human with the animal to explore a conflicted interconnectedn ess\, and creates imagery that is allegorical and even mythological at time s. Much like an idyllic nightmare\, beauty exists with deformity in its mid sts. Ekundayo combines the monstrous and the teratological with the beautif ul and the redemptive\, to convey a profound empathy for the duality of the human condition.

Artist Statement:
The theme of the show d eals with the connections that people have with each-other\, the world we l ive in and our quest for understanding who we are. \;

The ce ntral inspiration for this latest series of work comes from the concept of "Mana" which the ancient Hawaiians believed was an extraordinary universal power that radiates though all living things for man to harness for his own use.

The aspect of this idea that fascinates me most is that th e ancients believed our thoughts can contain transformative powers in our l ives when we choose to connect to this higher power that is all around us.& nbsp\;

There are moments in creating when time seems to disappea r. I feel like I'm lost in another world\, and this unexplainable feeling i s what I believe to be that higher source the ancient Hawaiians meant when they spoke of Mana. \;

This exhibition is my gift to that fe eling I know we all connect to when reaching deep within ourselves.

Craig "Ski bs" Barker likes legs. This Southern Californian artist grew up during the early '80s in the midst of both the punk rock and surfing culture explosion s. These influences soon inspired his own fine art. With a healthy dose of punk flyers\, album covers\, and surfing magazines buzzing through his head as a youth\, Barker began making flyers and t-shirts for his friends and h is own punk bands. Mixing different approaches\, techniques\, and mediums\, he creates a sense of memory\, personal history\, and appreciation for the female form. Combining elements of pop culture\, literary censorship\, and a positive mental attitude\, he creates layered scenes of voyeuristic misc hief. Barker's work explores the junctions between past and present\, memor y and imagination\, fantasy and reality\, while creating a dialog between i mage and viewer.  \; \; \; \;

ltd los angeles is pleased to present Alex Becerra\, James O. Clark\, Gerald Davis\, Radames &ldquo\;Juni &rdquo\; Figueroa\, Yann Gerstberger and Jocko Weyland in the group exhibit ion Hit Pause: &ldquo\;Sometimes you have to pee in the sink.&rdquo\; < /em>These six international artists highlight the absurdity of the human co ndition through their manipulation of banal scenes or through moments as an outsider.

\n

For this exhibition\, Alex Becerra paints women dancing atop mirrors perhaps in a gentleman&rsquo\;s club or maybe a roller rink\, creating a friction between what is possible and what is real. James O. Clark uses light as form in his sculptures to hu morously glorify and display some of our most private moments while playful ly referencing Duchamp and Klein. Gerald Davis&rsquo\; drawing is a voyeuri stic window into fantasy whether a schoolboy watching his neighbor picking up the mail or a dancer pausing in a nightclub. Radamé\;s "Juni" Figu eroa paints his subject by providing details of clothing while the features of the wearer disappear. This removal allows the clothing to represent the identity of this individual\, pointing to the notion of clothing as cultur al signifier in framing ones&rsquo\; complex identity. Yann Gerstberger use s cotton with natural and synthetic dyes to create his tapestries. These wo rks are within the lineage of craft arts\, while simultaneously exploiting this lineage to respond to its role in consumer culture. Jocko Weyland brin gs together the paradoxes of our desire for technology\, communication\, an d information with our incessant need for a connection to our planet and th e environment\; ultimately caused by the dichotomy of our domination over a nd dependency on the environment.

\n

Ale x Becerra was born in Valencia\, CA 1989. He received a BFA from Otis Colle ge of Art in 2011. Becerra has an upcoming solo booth in Zona Maco Sur in M exico City\, MX in February 2015. He currently lives and works in Inglewood \, CA.

On Saturday\, February 21\, 2015 from 5pm-8pm\, at 6 85 Venice Blvd.\, Venice\, CA (Old Venice Police Station)\, SPARC& rsquo\;s historic headquarters since 1977\, The Duró\;n Gallery at SP ARC will present A Short Essay on Chicano Photography\, showcasing works from the collection of Mary and Armando Duró\;n that will feat ure a survey exhibition on Chicano photography that has not been mounted in any venue large or small since in many years. One can argue that Chicano p hotographers took their cue from their quest to create their own reality ad mitting that it was not objective but reactionary to the few quite negative images that existed about Chicanos and their ancestors. The exhibit reveal s that the aesthetic and formal concerns were never ignored as Chicano phot ographers sought to make their mark on their terms. The works in this exhib ition will attempt to go beyond photojournalism and to demonstrate that aes thetic\, formal and social concerns were ever-present and together often fo rmed the resulting images by the artists.

\n

The Duró\;n Family Collection consists of hundreds of works\, together with an extensive libra ry of books\, catalogs and ephemera collected over 30 years. Armando Dur&oa cute\;n has spoken and written widely as a knowledgeable collector on Chica no art of Los Angeles. His unique perspective as a collector\, long-time fr iend of Chicano(a) artists and avid student on the subject is widely sought from Los Angeles\, to the Smithsonian\, from high school students to profe ssional appraisers. Duró\;n writes an occasional column for Brooklyn &\; Boyle newspaper\, &ldquo\;From the Living Room Couch&rdquo\; on Chicano art. \; Works fro m the collection are regularly shown throughout the country. The Mission of the Duró\;n Gallery is to present socially relevant and politically conscious art\, weather visual or performing\, especially for underserved a udiences\, by established and emerging artists\, artists&rsquo\; collective s and student projects.

Ruth Bachofner Gallery is plea sed to present a new exhibition of paintings by David Kapp. There will be & nbsp\;a reception for the artist\, Saturday\, February 28\, 4-6 PM  \;< /p>\n

David Kapp was born and raised in New York and has painted the city since the 1970's. Kapp&rsquo\;s paintings &n bsp\; extract the dramatic contrasts\, harmonies\, collisions and forms of urban architecture and movement.  \; Images of traffic\, buildings and pedestrians from skewed perspectives have become signature for the  \; artist. Kapp has revisited certain views and streetscapes\, yet these same subjects arrive in fresh ways  \; with each new series. His extreme per spectives and dramatic plays of light continually evolve in images  \; that have become tools for conveying the essence of the city\, rather than literal portraits of his  \; surroundings.  \;

\n

In his latest body of work\, Kapp brings a higher dose of geometry and an electric palette\, particularly with  \; collage studi es that recall the optimism of Matisse's cut-outs. In his paintings\, Kapp applies this same  \; precise cutting to paint\, where vertical views o f a jagged sky through towering highrises become highly  \; flattened\, hard-edge abstractions. In some pieces\, the context of the urban environm ent is barely  \; discernible within complex\, fractured geometries. Th ese works are accompanied by more painterly  \; approaches as well\, wh ere pedestrians\, traffic scenes and crosswalks brim with energy. While the  \; subjects are more recognizable in these paintings\, Kapp has pared down the scenes to favor a gridded  \; format with spare grounds. In a ll of his work\, Kapp's focus is always on the light\, which he sees of pri mary  \;importance\, the adhesive that binds the image together.  \ ;

\n

&ldquo\;Intentionality is not the p rimary component of the creative process\,&rdquo\; Kapp states. &ldquo\;Exp erimentation and  \; play are of equal importance. I don&rsquo\;t want only results but will achieve results through the process of  \; doing. Failure thus becomes an important part of the creative process. The proces s itself always indicates  \;a direction of interest. Habit is the bigg est enemy of creation. The subject of any painting is not the object:   \;the object is the relationship between parts\, forms and colors\, bound b y natural forces.&rdquo\;

\n

 \;Davi d Kapp has received two Awards from The American Academy of Arts and Letter s along with a  \; Rosenthal Foundation award. His work is in many publ ic and private collections including The  \; Metropolitan Museum of Art \, The National Academy of Design\, and The Mint Museum of Art. \;
