Koplin Del Rio is pleased to a nnounce an installation: Within the Walls by Sarah Perry\, \;t he artist&rsquo\;s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery since 1992. The sh ow features a collection \;of sculpture completed in the past five year s including an array of wall and freestanding \;artworks. The pieces\, executed in a myriad of found and fabricated mediums\, range \;in scale from several inches up to 8 feet.

\n

Ea ch unique piece in the exhibition is meticulously created in a seamless pre sentation of \;indistinguishable yet familiar materials that were found \, reinvented and fabricated at the \;hand of the artist. Perry&rsquo\; s palette isn't constrained by any man-made or natural material. \;Thus \, her sculptures are formed from her own distinct visual language\, based on forgotten \;histories and the artist's constant exploration of our u niverse\, both terrestrial and celestial. \;A Sarah Perry exhibition is an otherworldly journey that engages the viewer in a multifaceted \;an d enduring way.

\n

A constant observer a nd appreciator of all manners of life forms and their patterns\, Perry is&n bsp\;particularly fascinated by the fundamental and oft-overlooked. Whether Perry is studying \;the mesmerizing path of a honeybee or the ordinary task of turning on a home faucet\, her \;imagination opens a world of limitless visual possibilities. Each enigmatic artwork is a \;stepping stone along a path of discovery.

\n

Arti st&rsquo\;s note:
Sometimes the things hidden within are only betrayed by a disturbance on the \;surface\, by a shape turning below the rippl es. Inside the dark of a wall\, there is \;meaning to the hive 's motio n toward the light. We may have forgotten the language\, \;but we can s ee the sign of honey dripping from the smoldering wall socket. \;In my current body of work\, some themes remain familiar while others are new\;&n bsp\;from reflections on the Moon\, to warnings from the unconscious\, from humor in \;old age to alternatives about what happens to us when we di e. There is empathy \;for creatures and their human counterparts\, both distilled down to their essence of \;hair and teeth. We are all family here anyway\, reveling in the same remaining splendor: \;Howling and r eaching\, as we go down the same path within arms length of each other.

BEYOND EDEN
\n
A multi-gallery event celebr ating the New Contemporary Art Movement put together by Thinkspace\n
The fifth and final edition of Beyon d Eden will once again be hosted by the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery a t Barnsdall Park this coming October. Beyond Eden is a multi-gallery event celebrating the New Contemporary art movement in Los Angeles put together b y Andrew Hosner (co-owner / curator at Thinkspace) and made possible by the City Of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. The public is invited to attend this special event and admission will be $5 and open to all.
\n
 \;
\n
Each successive Beyond Eden event grows larger and larger with combined average attendance well over 5\,000 people for the past four year s of the event. The New Contemporary Art Movement continues to build moment um on a national level and is finally starting to receive mainstream recogn ition from major institutions and publications the world over. With its fou ndation firmly planted in Southern California and a patron base here in Los Angeles that has been building over the past several decades\, it's easy t o see why Beyond Eden has been welcomed with such open arms by the Los Ange les arts community and has become an anticipated annual event. It will be s ad to see it go but due to rising costs associated with the City\, we can s imply no longer afford to put this on and have it live up to the standards of our past events. We plan to make this final event one for the history bo oks and one you won't soon forget.

A line is a liquid thing. It c an glide through the profile of a face\, pool in the outlines of flora\, op en channels between bodies and objects. Hand and lemon\, pattern and torso\ , male and female\, foreground and background\; all linked by the fluent\, aqueous line. \;Images are vapor light\, drifting from surface to surfa ce like falling leaves\, gliding and merging into backgrounds. As a screens aver sifts through pools of photographs ad infinitum\, postcard motifs casc ade in perfectly randomized sequence. A torso seen on one canvas appears cr opped and angled elsewhere. A piece of fruit once held in a hand now tessel lated onto wallpaper.

\n

Palmieri&rsquo\ ;s works belong to a world without friction. His lines are vectorized\, imm aculate\, their courses plotted in advance. Each plane is smooth as milk\, each contour weighted\, mapped and filled. If a brush mark displays an unev en edge\, if a line should flick or curl\, it is never a record of the acti on of a hand pressing brush and paint against canvas. Palmieri&rsquo\;s han d acts like a digital cursor&mdash\;the labor of process \;is removed f rom view. Expressiveness is an attentively regulated effect. The canvas&nbs p\;is treated \;not as wood and weave\, but a baseless fabric upon whic h linear pictures materialize\, a surface with all the non- physical lightn ess of a digital interface.

\n

In an ear ly scene from Virginia Woolf&rsquo\;s novel Orlando\, the love stricken pro tagonist searches for the right words to describe the object of his affecti on:

\n

He called her a mel on\, a pineapple\, an olive tree\,
an emerald\, and a fox in the snow all in the space of three seconds\;
he did not know whether he had hea rd her\, tasted her\, seen her\,
or all three together.

\n

Orlando&rsquo\;s quest for the perfect descrip tion never settles into singular form. Instead\, he evokes a vivid set of m etaphors\, each a spring and together an ebullient stream of images\, so th at the object of his love is never fixed but always in motion. Of course it is not only the image of love that remains in flux.

\n

From boy to woman\, from the court of Elizabeth to a motorc ar on The Strand\, Orlando flows through bodies as well as through time.

\n

Orlando&rsquo\;s gender\, time\, and pl ace may change\, but every incarnation is only another version of the same fluid\, sensuous character. And like Orlando\, what is constant among Palmi eri&rsquo\;s transitory leitmotifs is the \;character \;of the line itself: a weightless\, melodious script that signs its name in every loop and curl.

UH-OH: Frances Stark 1991-2015 \;will be the most comprehensive midcareer survey of the work of the Los Angeles&ndash\;based artist and writer to date\, fea turing 125 drawings\, collages\, paintings\, and video installations. \ ;Frances Stark \ ;(b. 1967 Newport Beach\, CA)\, a key figure in the Los Angeles art communi ty\, has shown her work widely throughout the United States and Europe and is in frequent dialogue with many of her peers in the U.K. and Germany. For more than two decades she has been making poetic and poignant compositions combining text and imagery\, exploring a wide variety of subjects\, includ ing writing\, procrastination\, the banality of life\, failure\, success\, pride\, self-doubt\, motherhood\, pedagogy\, institutional critique\, class \, music\, literature\, poetry\, philosophy\, art\, sadness\, and relations hips. The exhibition will track her 25-year career from early carbon drawin gs to intricate collages and mixed-media paintings to the more recent work\ , which includes PowerPoint slide shows\, video\, performance\, and Instagr am photographs. Words and images are at the heart of her practice\, and lik e a lyricist\, Stark employs both to create provocative and self-reflexive works that pose universal questions.

\n

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with ne wly commissioned essays by Ali Subotnick and Howard Singerman\, as well as short contributions from artists\, writers\, and critics addressing an exis ting dialogue that Stark&rsquo\;s work has generated over the years\, in pr int\, online\, in person or even in the form of fan-mail.

\n
Thinks pace \;is pleased to announce its highly anticipated three-man exhibiti on\, \;The Gilded Age\, featuring new works by Aaron Horkey\, Esao Andrews and Joao Ruas. A rarely exhibited graphic designer\, illustrat or and artist\, Horkey creates intricately detailed hand-drawn silkscreens\ , highly coveted by collectors the world over. Immediately recognizable\, h is aesthetic has permeated print culture at large\, and is one of the most distinctive in contemporary concert posters and album art. When approached by the gallery's Director and asked to describe his ideal group exhibition\ , Horkey immediately suggested Esao Andrews and Joao Ruas as choice gallery companions. All three artists share an inexhaustible penchant for detail\, a preference for all things ornate\, and an antediluvian sensibility that tends towards allegory and myth. Enter \;The Gilded Age: \;the fortuitous result of a seemingly unlikely pet-project\, and a rare and unprecedented opportunity for collectors\, fans and enthusiasts to see the se three illustrative giants wring life from inanimate sands.
\n
 \;
\n
\n
A aron Horkey lives and works in his rural hometown of Windom\, Minnesota. He is renown for the iconic animalia and exquisite hand-drawn typography he h as created for heavy-weight bands like Isis\, Converge\, Boris\, The Melvin s and Neurosis\, among many others. Horkey stands alone as an uncompromisin g talent\, famously only producing his highly sought after commercial work in the absence of art direction. A tireless obsessive\, his aesthetic conve ys \;horror vacui\, or the paradigmatic dread of emptiness sha red by both the dense sculptural reliefs of the ancients and the ornamentat ion of late 19th century graphic design. Linear detail is worked and accumu lated to a staggering degree in \;"a Horkey"\, and the surfaces are oft en densely impenetrable with layers of decorative\, organic motifs and anim als of surreal mythological proportions.
\n
 \ ;
\n
A visual storyteller\, Horkey creates a post- apocalyptic\, quasi-naturalism\, Gothically stylized and yet reminiscent of the late 19th century's penchant for beautiful design. His pieces\, though clearly contemporary\, reflect the primacy of craftsmanship and the love o f ornament championed at the turn of the century. A time of economic growth \, industry and expansion in America\, the Gilded Age is characterized by a n aesthetic return to the organic\, ornate and man-made\, but the era also betrayed a melancholic awareness of industry's destructive supremacy\, and feared a future dominion of the machine. This darker sensibility is consist ently apparent throughout Horkey's work\; an artist always returning to the humbling power of the land as a theme\, and to its momentums of survival a nd decay. Helmeted birds\, airborne manta rays\, prehistoric insects and wi nged buffalo\, are but a few of Horkey's recurring cast of characters. Evad ing a specific sense of time\, history and place\, the natural mythology Ho rkey has painstakingly crafted is markedly\, and perhaps most tellingly\, a bsent of humans.
\n
 \;
\n
Esao Andrews is an illustrator and painter based out of Los Angeles. His oil paintings on panel blend figurative and organic elements into beaut ifully haunting and distorted dreamscapes. Often surreal\, eroticized\, and exaggerated to the point of the grotesque\, his works have been compared t o Mark Ryden's predilection for thorough stylization\, and John Currin's co ntemporary figurative Mannerism. An illustrator who has produced work for D C comics\, and album art for bands like Circa Survive\, Andrews creates emo tive narratives and allegories through the intuitive juxtaposition of image ry. Often combining human and natural worlds in a mashup of symbolic gestur es\, Andrews' \;highly detailed works resonate with the ghosts of our s ub-conscious. Like worlds unto themselves\, at times bordering on nightmare \, his paintings provide glimpses into alternate and parallel psychic unive rses\, capturing moments of meditative solitude\, quiet realization and mel ancholy.  \;  \;
\n
 \;
\n
\n
Brazilian artist Joao Ruas is similarl y preoccupied with detailed stylization\, narrative symbolism and the darkl y emotive surreal. A consummate illustrator and designer from Sã\;o P aulo\, Brazil\, and creator of \;Fables \;covers\, Ruas co mbines ancient references with the contemporary\, to create timeless visual mythologies. A gifted figurative artist\, his works explore the universal themes of transition\, power\, strength\, transformation and loss with an e mpathetic tenor. His haunting works are inspired by the age-old function of myth as an antiquated system of attributing meaning to natural and human c haos. Ruas'beautifully executed lines\, love of detail\, and quasi-Gothic a esthetic\, also recall the late 19th century golden age of illustration\, a nd its propensity for lush hand-drawn worlds. Fascinated by the enigmatic m ystery of lore and symbols\, and drawn to the use of recurring contrasts\, Ruas punctuates his work with a system of evasive signs. His pieces always tend to reveal the spectral traces of graphite in the end product\, a choic e that discloses both the presence of the artist and the ghostliness of his universe.
\n
 \;
\n
The Gilded Age \;presents three exceptional artists - two of w hom are hand-picked by the inimitable Horkey - whose respective work\, thou gh entirely unique and contemporary\, recalls many of the sensibilities sha red by the late 19th and early 20th century return to craftsmanship\, narra tive and ornamentation. Particularly relevant given our entrenchment in an age of digital reign and impermanent culture\, \;The Gilded Age&nbs p\;betrays a nostalgic yearning for the maximalism of the human hand.& nbsp\;

Monte Vista Projects is please d to present Scenes from Home\, an exhibition of new work by Micha el Bizon. \; Scenes from Home consists of three separate installations located across three different venues in Highland Park: The Living Room at Monte Vista Projects\, The Bathroom at the Mullin Gallery of Occidental Col lege\, and The Bedroom at the artist&rsquo\;s studio on Avenue 61 and Figue roa. \; Starting at Monte Vista Projects\, visitors will be given a map leading to the other locations.

Drawing upon tropes and memorie s associated with specific rooms of a house\, Bizon uses found object\, sou nd and movement to question the functionality of private space and investig ate notions of the sublime and uncanny within a personal home. \; In Ho me Stereo\, Bizon has constructed a Tower of Babel out of speakers\, altere d electronics and stereo equipment. This not only provides sonic atmosphere when entering the room\, but also examines the power of physical presence in a micro miniature world. \; \; While the work throughout the thr ee spaces is primarily object-based in nature\, the interaction amongst con structed keepsakes and a twisted feng shui ask the viewer to construct a st ory based in personal memory.

Michael Bizon is an artist based i n Los Angeles whose practice includes sculpture\, drawing\, installation\, sound\, instrument making\, and video. \; He received his MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008\, and his BFA from Wayne State Univer sity in Detroit\, MI. \; His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles\, D etroit\, Philadelphia\, New York\, Miami\, Tokyo\, and most recently at the VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art in Carlow\, Ireland.

Human Resources LA is pleased to announce the exhibition Let it Yellow by Keith Rocka Knittel.  \;This i s Knittel&rsquo\;s first solo show with the gallery and features new painti ngs\, sculpture\, video\, and performance by the artist.

\n

The work i n Let it Yellow is process driven -- performances build objects creating a syntax as gestures break down their materiality\, starting the process over again.  \;Art objects exist equally as both a means of representing th e present and a remnant of the past\, both combined to reflect upon the fut ure.  \;

\n

The show is entered through a corridor of pa intings of spinning\, generic newspapers.  \;Headlines declaring &ldquo \;World At War&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;Environmental Catastrophe&rdquo\; imbue the transitional space between the outside world and the gallery with the a nxiety of a punchline that never lands.  \;In the gallery\, a room divi der made from larger than life paintings of the artist&rsquo\;s cats double s as a sound deadening wall.  \;A grid of sixteen inch by nineteen inch abstract paintings\, roughly eight feet wide by twelve feet tall in all\, forms a large\, fluid mosaic.  \;Within the grid\, vacant spaces invite the components to be rearranged on a whim.  \;A stack of &ldquo\;$40 P aintings&rdquo\; - a series of black line paintings including a bedraggled cat toy beside the words &ldquo\;Secondary Nature\,&rdquo\; and a phone jac k with the phrase &ldquo\;Ride of Your Life&rdquo\; - sit atop a pedestal.  \;The paintings may be viewed by digging through the stack\, shuffling them in a constant flux of loopy narratives.

\n

Assembled in part fro m previous works\, some shown by Knittel in the Human Resources space when it was Cottage Home Gallery\, a twelve foot high tower of cubes descending in size climbs toward the ceiling.  \;The top of the tower can be viewe d from the cut-throughs in the wall of the former projection booth on the s econd floor of the gallery.  \;From this room\, viewers may observe the show and watch a video while sitting on a foam cube carved with an invitin g seat.  \;

\n

Keith Rocka Knittel holds an MFA from CalArts and h is work has been shown in contemporary art galleries and museums\, most rec ently at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles as part of KCHUNG&rsquo\;s contri bution to &ldquo\;Made in LA 2014\,&rdquo\; and at 356 Mission in Los Angel es as part of &ldquo\;Another Cats Show.&rdquo\;  \;He hosts a radio sh ow on KCHUNG (kchungradio.org) titled &ldquo\;Everything Must Go! FM\,&rdqu o\; entering its third year of airing.  \;He is currently a visiting le cturer at UC Riverside and lives and works in San Pedro\, California.

\n

There will be performances by Gautam Tejas Ganeshan on Friday\, Septembe r 11\, at 7 PM\, and by invited guests and Keith Rocka Knittel on Saturday\ , September 12\, from 9-11 PM.

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.
