Shattered Mural&nb sp\;is a wall projection and floor installation of forty-thre e sculptural wall fragments that reference the recent abduction and murder of the 43 college students in the Mexican State of Guerrero. \; This tr agic event has become a national\, and perhaps international\, symbol for v ictims of institutional corruption and repressive regimes around the world.  \;Unlike the \;Tijuana Radiant Shine \;panels\, the s culpture fragments of \;Shattered Mural \;were created by deconstructing a mural originally composed of forty-three portraits that&nb sp\;when put back together would contribute to the whole. \;

Hugo Crosthwaite inhabits a tradition that expa nds upon great artists before him such as Daumier\, Goya\, Posada\, Beck\, and Ensor\, contemporaries such as Pettibon\, Kentridge\, Coe\, Dumas\, and Rauch\, and a myriad of others. \; He has turned his personal and arti stic vision into commentary on the time and the place and the space he live s. \;

\n

Hugo Crosthwaite was born i n Tijuana and lives in Rosarito\, Mexico. He graduated from San Diego State University in 1997 with a BA in Applied Arts. His works are in the permane nt collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art\; Orange County Muse um of Art\, Newport Beach\, CA\; Perez Art Museum\, Miami\, FL\; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego\, CA\; Museum of Latin American Art\, Long Beach \, CA\; and San Diego Museum of Art\, CA\; Boca Raton Musem of Art\, Boca R aton\, FL\; and\, University of Arkansas\, Little Rock. \;

Mark Moore G allery proudly presents In Bloom\, a group show featuring new work by ten gallery artists in addition to the exhibition's keystone: Andy Warh ol.

\n

The exhibition was developed as a &ldquo\;call and response&rdquo\; to Andy Warhol's iconi c flower images from the early 1960s. The gallery requested that each invit ed artist create a new piece similar in scale to Warhol's original 14 x 14" canvases\, that also addressed concepts inherent to Warhol's work: derivat ions on the art historical still life\, mechanization of art-making\, and t he convergence of fine art and pop culture. As the current nature of art an d commerce has facilitated industry-wide conversations about the evolving r ole of artists\, galleries\, museums\, art fairs\, and the Internet\, Warho l's philosophies appear more topical and relevant than ever before.

\n

Considering this simple fr amework\, incredibly diverse approaches and techniques were employed\, give n the practices of each artist. Certain individuals approached the theme fr om an art historical perspective\, focusing on the perception and tradition of still life\, landscape\, and pastoral imagery\, as can be seen in the w orks of David Klamen and Allison Schulnik. Gallery newcomer Zemer Peled con tributes a sensuous wall-mounted ceramic sculpture ornately assembled from shattered pieces of blue and white porcelain\, while Kim Rugg's work is an intricate quilted rendition of the "newsworthiness" of Warhol's own imagery &ndash\; both testaments to the increasing lack of handcraft in recent con temporary art. Penelope Umbrico also confronts issues pertaining to image a uthorship and the exclusivity of the art world by "appropriating" Warhol's image from Art.com\, and up-ending the famed artist's own interest in mass produced icons.

\n

Oth ers have taken a looser thematic direction\, addressing the state of the ar t world in a less conventional manner. For instance\, Ben Weiner's Orange F lowers do not contain any recognizable imagery\, but were created by soakin g paper in a mixture of orange ink and opium\, a drug famously derived from poppies (the flower depicted in Warhol's flower series). Long-time gallery artist Vernon Fisher takes a similarly abstruse approach\, presenting an u ncharacteristically small work\, APrIL\, which entreats the viewer to conte mplate T.S. Eliot's notion of springtime as it relates to mortality. Simila rly\, Andrew Schoultz's geometric iconography illustrates his trademark con cerns about imperialist and globalized realities &ndash\; but now as they r elate to the art market - while Christopher Russell's sublimely clement\, h and-scratched photographs reveal a purity only found in authentic\, natural experiences in nature. In Bloom uncovers a through-line between artists wi th disparate practices and preoccupations\, prompting a larger "art world" dialogue that is truly Warholian.

Mark Moore G allery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Julie Heffer nan\, the artist&rsquo\;s third solo show at the gallery. Continuing what h as become a hallmark series of self-portraits\, Heffernan has developed a u nique and fertile visual lexicon\, which deftly combines themes of the pers onal with the political\, the universal with the individual\, and the famil iar with the fantastical.

\n

At the heart of the work is a palpable\, grave concern for the envir onment. Issues of climate change\, overpopulation and ecological imbalance are presented in highly ornate\, dreamlike tableaux\, rife with symbolism a nd allegorical implication. Although Heffernan&rsquo\;s compositions carry a clear reverence for the style and tradition of historical narrative paint ing\, her imagery is not tethered to a specific genre\, period or ideology\ , but rather blossoms directly from the imagination\, expounding on Surreal ism&rsquo\;s notion of the subconscious as the architect of reality.

\n< p class="unit_copy" style="text-align: justify\;">Despite their sobering su bject matter\, Heffernan&rsquo\;s works are empowered by a sense of cautiou s optimism\, wherein social critique is not the endgame. Rather than focusi ng solely on the causes and symptoms of our global maladies\, Heffernan&rsq uo\;s canvases are alive with possibility\, imagining creative ways in whic h we might prevail over our own undoing. The artist states: &ldquo\;The wor k is a continuation of my interest in climate change and the kinds of chang es we are going to have to consider in order to deal with some of its event ualities - perhaps an opportunity for some creativity in how we approach ha bitats and lifestyles. No more room for wastefulness\, but what do we decid e to keep and what to get rid of? The figures are now engaged in work of so me sort: pulling\, dragging\, wrestling with materials in order to start th e work of change."

\n

Heffernan (b. 1956\, Illinois) received her MFA from Yale School of Art (CT )\, and has been exhibiting widely for the past two decades. She is current ly Professor of Fine Arts at Montclair State University\, Montclair\, NJ. S elected exhibitions include: The Kwangju Biennial (Korea)\, Weatherspoon Ar t Gallery (NC)\, The Me Museum (Berlin)\, Knoxville Museum Of Art (TN)\, Co lumbia Museum Of Art (SC)\, Milwaukee Art Museum (WI)\, The New Museum (NY) \, The Norton Museum (FL)\, The American Academy Of Arts And Letters (NY)\, Kohler Arts Center (WI)\, The Palmer Museum Of Art (PA)\, National Academy Of Art (NY)\, McNay Art Museum (TX)\, Herter Art Gallery (MA)\, Mint Museu m (NC)\, Virginia Museum of Fine Art (VA)\, and Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OK) among numerous others.

Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to announce our second solo exhibition with Elizabeth Neel\, &ldquo\;Lobster with Shell Game.&rdquo\; \;

Neel&rsqu o\;s new paintings have a palpable immediacy that suggests that composition is continually in flux. Her abstract gestures evoke the body\, natural geo metries\, and man-made signs and symbols like Rorschach blots and linguisti c codes. She emphasizes the importance of touch and pressure using printmak ing rollers to create stuttering repetitions and mathematical patterns. She folds her canvases to create figural shapes that reference both the bilate ral symmetries found in nature as well as the aesthetic legacy of Modern ps ychology and psychoanalysis.

In this body of work\, Neel&rsquo\; s impulse to reveal and expose is balanced by an equal and competing desire to collapse and distract from interpretation and narrative. The omnipresen t drive to attach meaning to gestures and shapes that continually resist th ese efforts creates a tension encouraging the viewer to reflect on how imag es and forms\, similes and metaphors\, are at constant play in the most heg emonic and the most obscure forms of visual language. Neel&rsquo\;s work em anates from a highly personal place\, but she also mines visual culture for her references\, creating extensive webs of associations reflecting the ex perience of being and perception.

Elizabeth \;Neel earned a BA in History from Brown University in 1997 and later received her MFA from Columbia University in 2007. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibit ions at the Sculpture Center\, Long Island City\, NY\; Pilar \;Corrias& nbsp\;Gallery\, London\; and Sikkema \;Jenkins &\; Co.\, New York am ong others. Neel has been included in group exhibitions at the Cluj Museum\ , Romania\; Ujadowksi Castle\, Warsaw\, Poland\; and The Neuberger Museum\, Purchase\, New York. \;

Art exhibition Fluidity in Ascending Scales April 25 - May 2 6\, 2015 at Artspace Warehouse. Featured artists include \;Ekaterina Ermilkina\, \;Mic hael Habicht\, \;Greet Helsen\, \;Nicola Katsikis\, andEdith Kon rad.

\n

The highlighted artworks explore the fluidity of scales. T his exhibition focuses on artists who actively pursue ideals on a variable scale while providing a coherent understanding of harmony in a divergent hi erarchy. The fluidity resembles a widespread analysis of globalization\, re defining existing economic and ecological boundaries. These international a rtists are motivated to transform social practices and livelyhoods. The art works include local visions while exploring global interdependent developme nts.

\n

Ekaterina Ermilkina's \;or iginal abstract paintings are created using a skillful combination of apply ing and removing oil paint with a palette knife on canvas. The urban scenic views are abstracted and rich with vivid and textured layers. Ermilkina&rs quo\;s emotional architectural patchwork and mosaic cityscapes radiate a li fe of balance and positive energy.

\n

The driving influences behind&nb sp\;Michael Habicht's \;innovative sculptur es include his unique interpretations of peace and love and the California lifestyle. Using &ldquo\;found&rdquo\; or "reclaimed" objects from seminal Los Angeles locations like the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame and the ico nic Pacific Coast Highway\, Michael Habicht&rsquo\;s body of work reaches i nto all aspects of our visual culture.

\n

In her works \;Greet Helsen \;uses mainly acrylic paint\, but uses it like watercolor paint. The shimmering colored areas are superimposed and tr ansparent and are accentuated by ink lines and white light reflecting field s of color. This process produces artworks with unmistakable lightness and softness.

\n

Nicola Katsikis \;has bee n intrigued by graffiti from a young age\, observing subway cars with color ful images. Nicola&rsquo\;s artworks are a combination of her own photograp hs applied onto a wood panel and finished off with several coats of clear r esin.

\n

Edith Konrad \;paints particular ly acrylic on canvas\, collage and mixed media. Her artworks have been exhi bited internationally\, including many art fairs. In 2007 her art was acqui red by the State Museum Halifax\, Nova Scotia\, Canada. She won the 2009 Pa lm Art Award\, a Certificate of Excellence for outstanding artistic quality and originality of the work. In 2010 she exhibited at the Salon de la Cult ure at the Louvre in Paris\, France.

Richard Heller Gallery is proud to present Shred\, a solo exhibition by Zak Smith. This is Smith&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.

\n

Desire and the world create a terrible frenzy and Zak Smith does nothing about it. His avid eye and hyperkinetic line have al ways been of the world\, not apart from it\, and never more so than when de picting his home. Zak Smith&rsquo\;s Los Angeles is a very long and very go od nightmare of skies\, lights\, stained couches\, cracked walls\, colors\, noise\, women and trouble.

\n

Shred includes the &ldquo\;Drawings I D id Around The Time I Became A Porn Star&rdquo\;--a sprawling autobiographic al series of sketches recording Smith&rsquo\;s days and nights working as & ldquo\;male talent&rdquo\; in the adult film industry in the city with an a bsorbing visual energy--along with recent paintings and drawings charged wi th the same intricate\, delirious\, shameless precision.

\n

They are a ll mercilessly beautiful. About the Artist:
