Stefania Fersini&rsquo\;s paintings offer meditations on rep resentations of women in fashion magazines and the linchpin consumerist nod e of appearance. Beginning with pages ripped from LOVE\, The WILD\, Won derland\, and other such publications\, these paintings prompt us to c onsider the relationship between these glossy images and the degree of vene er in our own lives. Painted so the models appear in life-sized scale inste ad of magazine scale\, Fersini&rsquo\;s work comes to subtly reflect its vi ewer. As in front of a mirror\, viewers recognize the reflection they aim t o achieve and identify with. This continuous sway has a hypnotic effect tha t allows the observer to switch from conscious to subconscious and induces a personal reflection about the complexity of individuality in relation to these same models and values.

\n

Fersini&rsquo\;s paintings of slightl y crumpled magazine pages emphasize the highlights reflected by studio ligh ts shining on the pages&rsquo\; gloss coated finish. Creases and reflection s partly obscure the women of these spreads\; their half-parted lips\, half -lidded eyes\, and laconic poses all markedly and excessively similar. Wrin kle and highlight relegate those who once posed as goddess facsimiles to qu ickly fleeting images. With Fersini&rsquo\;s equal focus on the photographi c image and its lustrous surface\, the eye flits between recognizing the or iginal photograph&rsquo\;s perceptual depth--what it depicts--and the image as a physical/material object. Fersini&rsquo\;s painstaking technique monu mentalizes these images\, despite the ephemeral nature of fashion.

\n

As the artist writes:

\n

I&rsquo\;m fed u p of going fast\,
tired of the excesses and superficiality.
I nee d to paint to slow down.
I take time off\,
to meditate\,
to fast from what is too much
to contemplate Beauty\, where there is some .
I copy\, because the solution to excess is not to create &ldquo\;new .&rdquo\;
I copy like a mirror\, because reflection is my choice. [... ]

\n

My hand disappears behind the precis ion of the brushstrokes. Intentionally impersonal\, my presence confirms my will to be the mean\, a mirror\, everywhere but nowhere at the same time.< /p>\n

LOS ANGELES\, CA (Aug 22nd\, 2015) LA Artcore presents an exhibit of th ree artists with different approaches to what it means to be an artist\, an d what the art they make is for.

\n

Mike Saijo found a way to make art that interfaces with his intellectual interests and an expression on the r ole of an artist in our society. \; Drawing from an intense interest in linguistics\, theory\, and literature\, pages that nourished his mind beco me the actual surface onto which he applies his images\; as an example\, ar ranged selections from Kahlil Gibran&rsquo\;s The Prophet become a substrat e for the image of a tree. \; The images are applied using xerographic methods that he describes as mathematical\, and which he regards as Democra tic. \; This is a reflection of his generation\, which greeted the arri val of photocopy printing methods with enthusiasm\, making self-publishing a major new voice in the arts. \; He uses this print method as a double -entendre reference to the access created by that technology\, and the acce ss to culture present in the printed word.

Mei Xian Qiu has created a photo series called &ldquo\;Let a Thousand Flow ers Bloom&rdquo\;\, referencing the famous Mao reform program\, in which sh e imagines a Chinese Communist takeover of the United States. \; Using this scenario\, she explores the misconceptions and bad translations the We st uses to view China\, the imagery of romance routinely found in propagand a\, but with tongue in cheek references to the immorality such propaganda i s frequently criticizing\, such as homosexuality\, religion\, and Hollywood decadence. \; Born as an illegal migrant in Java\, she was given four names in preparation for various possible outcomes of the Communist killing s they fled. \; Her art is an expression of uncertainty\, of life shape d by social fear\, and the use of humor and art to transcend them.

\n

Patrick Quinn is an assemblage artist who uses a range of media to create w hat he describes as rough\, emotional work. \; He blends salvaged mater ials with found objects\, photographs and other story-telling elements to c reate something new out of discarded and dispossessed components. \; Us ing stained glass methods\, welding and screen printing to expand them\, hi s goal is to create a story that draws the viewer to interpret the work.&nb sp\; Steadily exhibiting in Los Angeles institutions and beyond since 2004\ , he is also well known for his Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos themed ins tallations\, which find themselves in festivals and as backdrops for perfor mances\, in addition to gallery settings.

LOS ANGELES\, CA (August 17TH\, 2015) L.A. Artcore is pleased to present Los Angeles artist Lore Eckelberry's s olo exhibit at its Union Center for the Arts space featuring forty works of sculptural portraiture as well as portraiture on canvas. In her most recen t creative development\, Eckelberry constructs matrices of bounded skateboa rd decks using them as blank surfaces upon which her subjects are tenderly hand-painted. Eckelberry's overall body of work depicts the artist's cadre of close friends\, family and family pets that are portrayed with emphasis on the celebratory way in which they are produced\, where the likenesses of her subjects are subjected to the spirit out which they are produced as ec hoed in high-key color palettes of stark contrasts and centralized composit ions. Eckelberry's style has evolved in relationship to the artist's multic ultural experiences and international travels whose revelation of cultural diversity has underscored Eckelberry's investigation of humanity.

\n

 \;Artist Statement :

\n

 \;After many years of living and painting in New York Ci ty\, I moved my home and studio to Joshua Tree\, California\, in 2015\, whe re I created all of the work for this exhibition.  \;

\n

 \;While working in an open-air studio\, with the vast desert as a backdrop\, I was forced to fight (and quickly inspired to embrace) nat ure&rsquo\;s elements such as strong winds\, intense light and excessive he at (all of which helped to influence and shape this current body of work).  \;Whereas my previous work had been \;informed and inspired by big -city living\, dense population and "noise\," the juxtaposed spaciousness\, isolation and solitude of the desert provided me with a vastly different\, almost sacred\, space in which to create a whole new body of work.  \; For me\, painting has always been a spiritual practice and\, in my new (alm ost \;alien-like) surroundings\, I felt like a conduit for the works th at I created for this exhibition (as if they had been patiently awaiting my arrival in the desert in order to finally come to fruition).

Blum &\; Poe is pleased to present an exhibition of Japanese ceramics featuring the work of Kazunori H amana\, Yuji Ueda\, and Otani Workshop &mdash\; organized and curated by Ta kashi Murakami.

\n

Presenting a wide ran ge of forms\, designs\, and materials\, the works in the exhibition draw up on the ancient sources of ceramic tradition in Japan\, while also revealing inventive techniques of shaping\, glazing\, coloring\, and firing.

\n

Richly informed by the Japanese art form of the tea ceremony\, ceramics have been widely appreciated and revered in Jap an. Historically\, the tools\, teacups\, and utensils used in the tea cerem ony\, as well as the ceremonial aspect itself\, have always symbolized leve ls of hierarchy and respect within society. Amidst the constant cultural an d economic shifts in Japan\, ceramics have remained unique relics of herita ge as well as embodiments of the Japanese sense of beauty.

\n

For this exhibition\, Takashi Murakami brings togethe r a new generation of Japanese ceramicists whose unique pottery methods mer ge a respect for lineage with improvisation\, experimentation\, and refinem ent. The work of all three artists &mdash\; Hamana\, Ueda\, and Otani &mdas h\; is informed by lifestyle\, the love of nature\, working in remote surro undings\, and sometimes farming their own land. Although these artists are young in age\, they are accomplished craftsmen and have been forming\, firi ng\, and exhibiting their earthenware in Japan for several years. Many of t he works in the exhibition have never been seen before in the United States \, as this display of ceramics is an illumination of age-old traditions bei ng expanded into the 21st century.

\n

Ka zunori Hamana makes ceramics on the pacific coast\, in Chiba\, Japan. The w ork is both stark and full of personality\, oftentimes the surfaces are str iped or imbued with designs or language. Urns\, bowls\, vessels\, cups\, an d plates &mdash\; each irregularly shaped by not only the vast history of t he ceramic arts\, but also by the characteristics found in the coastal envi ronment where he works.

\n

Yuji Ueda com es from a family of award-winning tea farmers in the Shiga Prefecture town of Shigaraki. His experimental approach to glazing and firing leads to a va riety of distinct forms and vessels. Working both in intimate sizes and lar ger scales\, Ueda&rsquo\;s alien surfaces and fragile textures are both tol erant and unyielding.

\n

Otani Workshop is also a ceramicist from Shigaraki &mdash\; one of the great centers of Ja panese ceramics for the last 800 years. In addition to clay\, Otani works w ith wood\, iron\, and other materials. His small jars\, vases\, and other s culptural forms depicting figures and faces are characteristic of the many styles and motifs found throughout Japanese culture.

Christopher Grimes Galle ry is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by \;Iñ\;igo Manglano-Ovalle. \;As part of the Site Santa Fe&rsquo\;s 2014 Bien nial\, Manglano-Ovalle installed a permanent work of land art in community of the Santa Clara Pueblo\, New Mexico. This vertical sculpture penetrated the ground to reach the aquifer below on top of which was installed a hand pump to manually extract water for public consumption. For this forthcoming exhibition 500 gallons of water from this well will be transported to Sant a Monica where visitors can access this resource and gift of P&rsquo\;oe courtesy of Santa Clara Pueblo. Of this project\, Manglano-Ovalle states:

\n

&ldquo\;Well is on the on e hand a simple and reductive gesture of drilling down to tap what&rsquo\;s beneath us\, on the other hand it&rsquo\;s simply a utilitarian means of a ccessing a basic necessity. As an artwork it reconsiders Robert Barry&rsquo \;s Inert Gas Series and Walte r de Maria&rsquo\;s Vertical Kilome ter\, and it could remain as such contentedly. Except that once the aq uifer is tapped the work is no longer inert\, and its verticality is contested by demands for horizontal distribution. Landscape turns into land\, and water into commodity\, calling into question De Maria&rsquo \;s metrics of vastness and Barry&rsquo\;s indefinite expansion of elements \, as well as the colonial underpinnings of this earlier work. Put to use < em style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue'\, Helvetica\, Arial\, sans-serif\; font-size: 11px\; line-height: 14px\;">Well politicizes concepts of si te and landscape and problematizes the very substance of the work &ndash\; water."

\n

Throughout his career Manglan o-Ovalle has addressed urgent issues relevant to our time. Couched in a for mal language of art historical references\, topics such as migration and cl imate change have been explored though metaphors of clouds and icebergs\, a nd water itself. Well in particular calls into question the enviro nmental impact of resource extraction\, the carbon footprint of the artists and the political\, legal and cultural complexities of water rights and sh ared consumption.

\n

Iñ\;i go Manglano-Ovalle (b. 1961 in Madrid\, Spain) lives and works in Chicago\, IL. He was the 2012 winner of a USA Fellow Award and winner of th e 2001 MacArthur Fellowship. Manglano-Ovalle has been honored with numerous solo exhibitions including The Black Forest\, the inaugural exhib ition at Museo Universidad de Navarra\, Pamplona\, Spain (2015)\; Alway s After (The Glass House)\, The Art Institute of Chicago\, Chicago\, I L (2011) and Gravity is a force to be reckoned with\, Massachusett s Museum of Contemporary Art\, North Adams\, MA (2009). He has presented ma jor projects at Documenta XII\, Kassel\, Germany (2007) and the Ba rcelona Pavilion\, Mies van der Rohe Foundation\, Barcelona\, Spain (2002). Manglano-Ovalle&rsquo\;s work is in the collections of such institutions a s Broad Art Museum\, East Lansing\, MI\; Whitney Museum of American Art\, N ew York\, NY\; Solomon R.
