May 27 - July 10\, 2015 at Artspace Warehouse:
Decoding the Memories

\n

New art exhibition Decoding the Memories opens May 27 \, 2015 at Artspace Warehouse. Featured artists include \;Clara Berta\, \;Bettina Mauel\,  \;Miki Reimann\, and \;Maura Segal.

\n

Opening Reception Wednesday\, May 27\, 6-9pm.

\n

 \;

\n

Clara Berta&rsquo\;s \;pa intings explore themes such as the ebb and flow of memory\, the significanc e of personal heritage\, renewal\, the passing of physical time\, desire\, passion\, and love. Manipulating the texture with many layers of paint\, sh e will work and re-work her canvases\, layering\, scraping\, piling up text ures to give added dimension\, creating works that intrigue and invite the viewer in for closer inspection.

\n

The driving influences behind  \;Bettina Mauel \;Mauel expresses vitality an d sensuality in her paintings. &ldquo\;I paint what I experience\,&rdquo\; she articulates. &ldquo\;This includes landscapes\, flowers\, people and al ways dancing.&rdquo\; She has presented her work in numerous exhibitions th roughout Europe and her art has been acquired by many public institutions.< /p>\n

In her works \;Miki Reimann \;crea tes compositions that generate tranquil poetic images\, leaving traces and balances on the edge of recognition and alienation. Her spatial use of pigm ents and oil allows three-dimensional space to intrude into an otherwise tw o-dimensional surface and form a visualization of her ideas of fulfillment and state of mind.

\n

Maura Segal \;constr ucts multi-layered artworks\, using a combination of acrylic paint and care fully selected papers\, new and antique\, resulting in a complex universe o f balance\, texture\, color and vibrant rhythms.

Victor Papan ek always defended that designers should donate 10% of their time\, talent\ , and skills to volunteering.

EDITH BEAUCAGE

\n

Chill Bivouac Rhymes

\n

June 6 - July 18\, 2015
Opening Reception: June 6\, 2015\, 3 - 6 p.m.

\n

Edith Beaucage&rsquo\;s third solo exhibition at CB1 Gallery\, Chi ll Bivouac Rhymes features paintings and mixed media objects. The exhibitio n invites you to follow a small group of teens at a rave concert. A young B olshoi ballerina\, Ekaterina becomes a rave bunny and escapes her Russian l over to venture in cutting shapes with a young surfer from Bora Bora.

\n

In parallel to Roland Barthes search for openness of interpretation in l iterature\; Beaucage organized her current exhibition to allow for a loosel eaf narrative. Barthes concluded that an ideal text is one that is reversib le\, or open to the greatest variety of independent interpretations and not restrictive in meaning\; avoiding strict timelines and exact definitions o f events. Beaucage brings about this revers- ibility in the exhibition by c hoosing a series of paintings that mixes the plot in a non linear fashion\, including molly induced moments and cinematic tropes in 3D.

\n

All th e images visually rhyme with one another around a central bivouac\; a camps ite in the woods where the Rave is happening. The rhymes are geometric elem ents that are both color and sound.

\n

The viewer will discover the pa intings by looking through sculptures and painting installation. Tall multi color trees\, an octagon geometric shape and freestanding painted campers a re installed on the gallery floor to produce a deep focus space. The inclus ion of the three levels of foreground\, middle ground and extreme backgroun d objects create for the viewer a effect similar to a depth of field compos ition in cinematography\; allowing the viewer to focus on both close and di stant planes.

\n

In addition to paintings\, Beaucage has created ename l on iron pieces that where fired at 1450°\; F\; fusing glass to metal. Influenced by Limoges enamelings from the mid 1600s\, her ravers are incaps u- lated in a deep glossy tranced out spaces.

\n

Edith Beaucage (b. Qu ebec\, Canada) currently lives and works in Los Angeles\, California. She r e- ceived her MFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2010. She studied at Palazzo Spinelli\, Centro per L&rsquo\;arte e Il Restauro\, Florence\, I taly. She has BA from Bishop&rsquo\;s University in Lennoxville\, Quebec\, Canada.

Steve Turner is pleased to present Inscripci& oacute\;n en la Tierra\, the first United States exhibition of Buenos Aires-based artist Joaquí\;n Boz. The artist uses paper\, as opposed to canvas\, as the support for his abstract paintings and drawings that are saturated in either oil and graphite. Utilizing an elemental color palette \, Boz alternates between monumentally large-scale works and those that are the size of a small magazine. His process is one of rumination and revisio n\, of gesture and thought. For his paintings\, he soaks the paper in oil a nd manipulates paint across the slick surface using various implements\, in cluding his hands. The oil produces a varied and dynamic texture on the pap er\, from translucent to opaque\, which adds depth to the abstract markings . For his graphite drawings\, he covers the entirety of the paper&rsquo\;s surface so that the result is as sculptural as it is graphic&mdash\;the fin ished work looks like a hammered sheet of metal. Both processes demonstrate a concern for surface which results in a visceral transmutation of each ma terial: the paint slides across an altered version of what was once natural paper\, now transformed with a life of its own\; the graphite builds upon itself to create a texture that activates and envelops its surface. \;< /p> DTEND:20150711 DTSTAMP:20150602T185441 DTSTART:20150613 GEO:34.0906903;-118.3392758 LOCATION:Steve Turner\,6830 Santa Monica Blvd \nLos Angeles\, CA 90038 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Joaquín Boz: Inscripcíon en la Tierra\, Joaquín Boz UID:385508 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTEND:20150613T200000 DTSTAMP:20150602T185441 DTSTART:20150613T180000 GEO:34.0906903;-118.3392758 LOCATION:Steve Turner\,6830 Santa Monica Blvd \nLos Angeles\, CA 90038 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Joaquín Boz: Inscripcíon en la Tierra\, Joaquín Boz UID:385509 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

Steve Turner is pleased to present Solid Stat e\, a solo exhibition by Melbourne-based Michael Staniak\, featuring n ew painting and sculpture created by combining traditional art-making techn iques with new digital processes. The paintings fuse the artist&rsquo\;s ha nd-drawn gestural marks that are cast in plaster with Internet-sourced\, di gitally created backgrounds of stone. The sculptures were made using the tr aditional technique of bronze casting along with contemporary 3-D scanning and machine routing processes. In mixing materials and methods\, Staniak ex plores the different ways in which digital information is changing the phys icality of painting and sculpture while addressing the question of permanen ce in the storage of digital files.
