Th e Manhattan Beach Art Center and the City of Manhattan Beach present\, BEEN THERE-DONE THAT-DOING THIS\, featuring a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings executed by Jim Murray over the last four decades. Curated by Ann Martin\, BEEN THERE-DONE THAT-DOING THIS will draw from three distinct seri es. Though seemingly different at first glance\, they are in fact\, united by a common commitment to a particular and personal imagery\, that at its c ore\, speaks consistently to the specificity of both time and place.

\n

The seri es BEEN THERE\, presents in text the early development and major influences that were set in place coming out the graduate program at Art Center Colle ge of Design. The series DONE THAT\, highlights the first two series\, the large scale photo realist figurative paintings from the years 1972 to 1985\ , as well as the more intimate charcoal and pastel landscape drawings from the years 1986 to 2005. The series DOING THIS\, focuses on the most recent landscape paintings and drawings from the years 2005 to 2015. The latest wo rks concentrate on the winter months in Yosemite National Park and current work from The Southwest.

\n

One of the goals of this exhibition is to focus on t he art\, the artist and to seek out those basic issues that are common to a ll three bodies of work.

\n

After graduating from the Art Center College of Desi gn in Pasadena\, Jim Murray has been a resident of Manhattan Beach since 19 72. He was tenured Associate Professor of Art as well as Gallery Director a t Mount St. Mary&rsquo\;s College in Brentwood. He has taught at several co lleges and universities in the region and is currently on faculty at the Pa los Verdes Art Center where he continues to conduct a gallery/museum visita tion class. He frequently lectures and curates exhibitions and has been exh ibited in over a hundred exhibitions locally and nationally over these past four decades. Mr. Murray is a recipient of the California Arts Council&rsq uo\;s Artists Fellowship in the Visual Arts and has chaired several boards and committees including the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art and the Art Advisory Council for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

David Kordansky Gallery is ver y pleased to announce \;Some Crazy Pictures\, an exhibition of recent paintings by Peter Saul. T he exhibition will open on \;Saturday\, May 2\, 2015 \;at 5130 W. E dgewood Place and will continue on view through \;June 20. An opening r eception will be held on \;May 2 \;from \;6:00pm until 8:00pm.< /p>\n

Over the last 50 years Peter Saul has created one of the most immediately recognizable bodies of work in contemp orary American painting. By maintaining allegiance to no particular school- -indeed\, his career has in part been predicated upon the skewering of the endless litany of "-isms" that are commonly assumed to define art in the 20 th and 21st centuries--he has allowed his own idiosyncrasies to channel the strangeness and perversity of modern life. In his pictures formal experime ntation is never far removed from social commentary\, and the broad scope o f history painting is bound up with emotional responses to the specific day -to-day realities of being an artist.

\n

Some Crazy Pictures\, Sa ul's first show at the gallery\, comprises a group of new and recent painti ngs completed over the last few years. Featuring satirical swipes at money and power\, violent conflations of popular and art historical imagery\, and absurd anthropomorphism\, these works take on a characteristically wide ra nge of subjects. Extreme distortions of the human (and animal) figure are f ound throughout\, as are the insouciant humor and reckless disregard for go od taste that have fueled his work for decades\, and that prompted early as sociations between Saul's paintings and the work of the Chicago Imagists an d Bay Area Funk artists. Such proclivities\, as well as his penchant for ca rtoonish exaggeration and his lurid palette\, would seem to situate Saul at the margins of mainstream art world discourse.

\n

But as paintings like "Mondrian Duck"\, 2015\, suggest\, the lin es that separate the margins from the mainstream are blurry at best\, and o ften run crooked: here\, three artsy Donald Duck look-alikes exchange boxin g-glove blows with puffed-up paintings of grids (a floating beret hovers sl ightly apart from the action\, knocked off the head of one of the ducks\, a s if up for grabs). If geometric "objectivity" has become an unimpeachable fixture in the narrative of the development of modern art\, it has done so not only at the expense of other visual styles\, but of broader ideas about the range of experiences that art can represent. In "Mondrian Duck" Saul l ays bare the unquestioned predominance of the Dutch artist's grids in offic ial histories of painting\, portraying them as grotesque entities that torm ent painters as much as\, if not more than\, they enlighten them.

\n

Saul's work often sheds light on (and sometime s literally eviscerates) what others take for granted\, whether in art\, po litics\, or basic social respectability. This lends it an aura of rebelliou sness that is inseparable from its insistent formal invention\; it also mea ns that his pictures\, even when their subjects are complex or have sweepin g implications\, are highly personal\, both as expressions of their creator 's sensibility and in terms of the responses they elicit from viewers. Saul grabs hold of topical themes that would scare most artists away for being too risky or too pervasive\, and turns them upside down and inside out.

\n

In "Crowded Skies"\, 2015\, he demonstra tes\, perhaps paradoxically\, that history painting's legacy as an academic genre makes it an ideal vehicle for depicting those facets of contemporary life that are most irrational and least amenable to intellectual analysis. A tangle of planes outfitted with sexual organs copulate without apparent concern for a pair of panicked pilots\; the latter\, reduced to their heads and necks\, in fact form the ends of two planes' phalluses\, each thrust t hrough the engine of a neighboring plane. Anyone who has traveled by air in recent years will have experienced the feeling that everyone involved is b eing screwed.

\n

Other works rely on no immediately identifiable reference point\, transposing the kinds of everyda y objects and images that define Pop art into tableaux that feel both famil iar and profoundly wrong. Several center around food\, a thematic concern t hat can be traced back to paintings of refrigerators that Saul made beginni ng in the early 1960s. In "Lunchtime"\, 2015\, a man\, rendered as a cubist -expressionist hybrid of scattered facial features\, stares with longing\, protoplasmic eyes at a sandwich he holds with enlarged fingers. And in "Sin ging Sandwich"\, 2014\, strips of bacon\, leaves of lettuce\, and a huge mo uth belting out a cluster of musical notes fill the space between two piece s of bread. In these works Saul prompts both laughter and despair\, foregro unding the most basic human needs\, including in the form of the sandwich's song\, the very urge to make art\, however arbitrary\, difficult\, or inex plicable it might be.

\n

Peter Saul (b. San Francisco\, 1934) has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at institutions worldwide\, including a retrospective that originated at the O range County Museum of Art\, Newport Beach\, California in 2008 and travele d to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts\, Philadelphia and the Contempor ary Arts Center\, New Orleans. Among Saul's other recent solo shows are&nbs p\;From Pop to Punk: Peter Saul\ , Paintings from the 60s and 70s\, Venus Over Manhattan\, New York ( 2015)\; \;Figaro\, Ar nold and Marie Schwartz Gallery Met\, Metropolitan Opera House\, New York ( 2014)\; \;Holy Moly\, Stä\;dtische Galerie Wolfsburg\, Germany (2013)\; and \;Peter Saul\, Fondation Salomon Art Contemporain\, Alex\, France (2012). Recent group exhibitions featuring his paintings and drawings include \;Comic Future\, Wexner Center for the Arts\, Columbus\, Ohio an d Ballroom Marfa\, Texas (2013-14)\; \;Sinister Pop\, Whitney Museum of American Art\, New York (2012)\; \;Ordinary Madness< /span>\, Carnegie Museum of Art\, Pittsburgh (2010)\; and \;Bad Painting\, Good Art\, MMK\, Vien na (2008)\, as well as \;Ame rica is Hard to See\, the upcoming inaugural exhibition at the new W hitney Museum of American Art\, New York.

RYCA brings a little Victorian a with a side of Star Wars" &ndash\; Juxtapoz Magazine

\n


RYCA "ROUGH WITH THE SMOOTH" \ ;solo exhibition in conjunction with BRITWEEK \;

\n


Copro Gallery presents a solo exhibition by artist RY CA "Rough With The Smooth \;" This will be his first solo show with Cop ro and and \;unlike his recent previous exhibitions in Europe and Japan it \;fuses his Star Wars Iconography with lyrical subverted pub sign s tyle works. For his L.A. debut he presents his most visually exciting exhib it to date and showing in the entire gallery. It will give viewers the oppo rtunity to 'cross over' into 2 worlds

\n

British Artist Ryan Callanan aka RYCA draws upon a broad spectrum of Conte mporary popular culture in his works\; referencing film\, music and art his tory that is often seen as refreshingly comic and accessible.

\n

With early influences including Andy Warhol and Ro y Lichtenstein\, Ryan would take classic Warhol imagery and replace its sub ject with Star Wars and other movie references in his works. The last few y ears has seen Ryan move towards a new practice that draws upon his in-­\ ;‐depth knowledge of materials and craftsmanship acquired through his train ing in industrial model making and 3-­\;‐D design\, becoming what fellow Brit Artist Ben Eine calls a "chemist-­\;‐like" expert with materials a nd techniques.

\n

With this highly disci plined art &ndash\; form\, Ryan started what was to continue to be a succes sful series of works in the visual style of the subverted pub sign\, where he explored colloquial words and quotes. He created a series of signs of 'e xpletive-­\;‐ insertions' (a process by which an expletive or profanity is inserted into a word). These ingeniously witty works tap into the collec tive British psyche in which the pub sign has become an unconsciously absor bed reference point against which Ryan's words and symbols react. The piece s have continued to combine numerous techniques with glass\, gilding\, resi n and lettering\, and have captured the attention of celebrities such as Ho llywood producer David Mandel and British personality Russell Brand who are now avid collectors of RYCA's works. Renowned international photographer J R commissioned RYCA to create a unique sign piece for his Paris based studi o that reads "CA VA BIEN SE ASSER" / "Everything is going to be OK"

\n

Most recently Ryan has been exploring song l yrics that are personally significant from his childhood and youth. The mus ical sources of his lyric works have been diverse and have included some cl assic 1990s hip hop\, such as 'C.R.E.A.M.' [Cash Rules Everything Around Me ] by New York group Wu-­\;‐Tang Clan\, and 'Insane in the Brain' by Amer ican hip hop group Cypress Hill (from which the popular lyric 'Insane in th e membrane' comes). The response to these highly original and poetic pieces has been incredible with music producers and writers buying up whole editi ons rejuvenating the dying art of sign writing. Ryan wants to really establ ish the aesthetic of what he calls 'old fashioned signage' as an art form t o make it his own. "Nothing is truly original" he says\, "but I don't know of anyone else doing this kind of work."

Painting is a slow medium. Slow to make and slow to release and reveal forms and \;meani ngs. Although I use and manipulate imagery\, it is with the desire to repla ce \;momentary certainty with something more physical and with a slower burn. How \;important the originating models are to the finished work is perhaps less interesting than \;what is l eft. Having a statement of intent can only offer false security and I like ambiguity. \;

&ndash\; W illiam Monk

\n

 \;

\n

Kohn Gallery is pleased to present London-based p ainter William Monk&rsquo\;s first exhibition in California: The Cloud is Growing in the Trees. This exhibition is the culmination of Monk&rs quo\;s practice over the last few years during which time he has created un iverses within his paintings that reflect on the relationship of the object and spectator.

\n

In Monk&rsquo\;s pain tings a sense of repetition breaks down the figuration\, creating visual ma ntras in which the human scale of the work increases this subtlety rather t han amplifying the model. This rhythm happens throughout Monk&rsquo\;s work \, surrendering figurative logic to arrive at something stranger and more p owerful. Beautifully atmospheric and energetic\, these paintings invite a m ore direct physical connection\, drawing in the space between our inner and outer realms of experience.

\n

The arti st&rsquo\;s unique relationship to image and paint lead him to enigmatic su bject matter such as forests\, galaxies\, and the open road. The Cloud is Growing in the Trees \;underscores this mysterious\, almost psy chedelic relationship that invites the viewer in as an active participant.< /p>\n

About the artist:

In 1975 a reporte r from the Los Angeles Times began asking questions about the massive ship building efforts that had begun in Southern California\; a New York Times r eporter also picked up the story. As no one seemed to have a very good answ er to what was going on\, inquires were send to the Central Intelligence Ag ency.

\n

Nixon had just res igned\, and as such the Company found itself in the unusual position of not being able to lie or ignore the inquiries.

\n

This is what they came up with:

\n

"We can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the information requested but\, hypothetically\, if such data were to ex ist\, the subject matter would be classified\, and could not be disclosed."

\n

30 years later the use of this response has reverberated out through layers of American politics a nd settled into our vernacular. Its beauty comes from the language's abilit y to form a complete circle while still managing to have a beginning and an end\, an entrance and an exit.

From late 2014 into 2015\, Redling F ine Art has produced a series of shows and performances working with artist s whose works\, practices\, or logics engage somehow with the spirit or lit eral ideas found in the Glomar Response.

\n

For this section Mel Bochner has created a new text work\, which will be on view throughout the run of the show. While the exhibition will begin with the work hanging alone in the gallery\, over the proceedin g weeks works by Stephen Prina and Corey Fogel will be added to the show&rs quo\;s composition by way of performance.

Focusing on the interaction between t he natural landscape and the urban environment\, Robert Adams&rsquo\; photo graphs capture the evolving terrain on the outskirts of Los Angeles\, stret ching from Palos Verdes to Redlands. Although Adams reveals what has been l ost through mankind&rsquo\;s persistent development of the land\, his photo graphs still manage to convey optimism for nature&rsquo\;s endurance. As he wrote earlier in his career\, &ldquo\;The job of the photographer is not t o record indisputable fact but to try to be coherent about intuition and ho pe.&rdquo\;

Robert Adams (b. 1937) has been photographing the Am erican landscape for almost fifty years. The Philadelphia Museum of Art org anized a retrospective of his work in 1989\, and in 1997 his photographs we re included in Documenta 10. His 2010 retrospectiveThe Place We Live\, organized by the Yale University Art Gallery\, traveled to the Los Ang eles County Museum of Art\, the Museo Nacional Reina Sofí\;a in Madri d\, and the Jeu de Paume in Paris\, among other venues. \;

Join us at the gallery\, April 29th as we host a book launch for \;Sundogz \;by the Amer ican art and sci-fi author Mark von Schlegell. \; The author will give a short reading from the novel and copies will be available for sale. \ ; The event begins at 7 PM\, with a reading at 8.
 \;
About&n bsp\;Sundogz:
 \;
Beginning with \;Venusia \;(2005) and continuing with \;Mercury Station \;( 2009)\, Mark von Schlegell's System Series has moved backward in time\, inv estigating the contours of time\, memory\, perception\, and control in the inter-planetary system that emerge off-world in the twenty-second and twent y-third centuries during Earth&rsquo\;s full collapse.
 \;
In the latest installment\, \;Sundogz\, set among the water-rich moons of planet Uranus\, extremist astro-marine &ldquo\;spacers&rdquo\; ha ve constructed an aquatic world of extraordinary scope and ambition\, entir ely invisible to the System at large. The Good Fortune\, a spaceship en rou te to Moon Miranda\, the most beautiful and troublesome of Uranus's satelli tes\, sends out a party to explore rumors of a secret fish farm in the &lam bda\; ring. Now the "Oan Bubble" must attempt to survive its discovery.
 \;
The characters in \;Sundogz \;traverse a cy bernetic world containing traces of nineteenth-century realism\, Shakespear ean-style wit and violence\, and classic fantasy\, while exploring possible modes of the imagination&rsquo\;s survival in centuries to come.
&nbs p\;
As Jeff Vandermeer noted in Bookforum\, von Schlegell&rsquo\;s wor k "addresses the realities of a grim future with grace\, humor and intellec tual honesty&mdash\;[his novels] hark back to the heyday of such giants as J. G. Ballard\, Ursula Le Guin\, John Calvin Batchelor\, and Philip K. Dick ."
 \;
Sundogz \; \;is published by Semiotex t(e) and distributed by MIT Press.
 \;
Mark von Schlegell's s tories and essays appear regularly in underground newspapers\, zines\, art books\, and futurist periodicals the world over. \;Venusia\, h is first novel\, was honor-listed for the 2007 James M. Tiptree Jr. Prize i n science fiction.
