\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. Guggenheim Museum\, New York\, NY\; Museum of Con temporary Art\, San Diego\, CA\; Museo de Arte Contemporaneo\, Bilbao\, Spa in\; and Museo Nacional Centro de arte Reina Sofí\;a\, Madrid\, Spain \, among others.

Harvester features 162 of the vegetable\, grain\, nut\, sea vegetabl e\, and fruit harvesting machines. In one continuous viewing of all these m achines it offers a glimpse into the world of industrial agriculture\, the work of the farmer\, human ingenuity\, and tightens the gap of knowing wher e and how food is produced. Harvester was created to visualize the origins of what we consume daily and to consider this from a macro perspective\, as a snippet into the evolution of Homo sapiens. Leaving wonder for the techn ologies preceding and ones to evolve.

CB1 Gallery is pleased to present our fourth solo exhibition by gallery artist Lisa Adams\, &ldquo\;America The Beautiful.&rdquo\; The paintings in &ldquo\;America The Beautiful&rdquo\; are a thoughtful and for ecasting look at personal\, natural and political issues faced by Americans now and in the years to come.

Adams depicts transformed image s seen in the urban and natural worlds and combines them with re-imagined e lements\; glowing tree stumps\, a swan decoy\, dramatic skies\, a rainbow\, tagging\, a tree that exhales green gas instead of leaves\, the LA River\, off-world colony architecture\, a Potemkin Village and the iconic American flag\, to name a few.

In a time when our worlds can be indivi dually designed in the virtual world\, Adams does a mash up of common image ry and concocts a combination of science fiction and hallmark familiarity t o create an uncomfortable and new vision. Each painting presents the viewer with the possibility of discovery in broad and personal terms\, with myste ry and non-sequitur and finally with many more questions then answers.

Lisa Adams is a painter and public artist\, who has a B.A. from Sc ripps College and an M.F.A. from the Claremont Graduate University. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and has been an artist-in-residen t in Slovenia\, Finland\, Holland\, Japan and Costa Rica. Her many accompli shments include a Fulbright Professional Scholar Award and her work is in t he public collections of Eli Broad\, the San Jose Museum of Art\, the Frede rick R. Weisman Museum of Art\, the Laguna Museum of Art and the Edward Alb ee Foundation. In addition to her studio practice\, Lisa works on public ar t projects\, which have included the Chatsworth/Orange Line Metro Station\, Fire Station No. 64 in Watts and the West Valley Branch Library in Reseda. Her first monograph book\, Vicissitude of Circumstance\, published by ZERO + Publishing was released in Fall 2011.

ROSEGALLERY is pleased to pres ent \;Her First Meteorite\, a selection of unique photographic collages by Carolle Benitah\, James Gallagher\, Melinda Gibson\, Ken Grave s\, Sté\;phanie Solinas\, Annegret Soltau\, and Grete Stern. The mixe d media collages will be on view from \;26 Septemberthrough \;28 No vember 2015. \;

\n
\n
Found\, sliced and ass embled\, the photographic collage establishes experimental and introspectiv e forms through the combination of familiar and obscure images. The montage s from the various artists each evoke a distinct entry into surreal worlds\ , bound together by connected and intertwined photographs. With found objec ts and images\, the spontaneity of discovery and combination counters the i ntricacy of the details in the works. \;
\n
\n
 \;
\n
Although half a century apart\, K en Graves' collages and Grete Stern's \;Sueñ\;os \;both re-im agine worlds for the figures on the page. Graves pulls from magazines of St ern's period\, the mid twentieth century\, and creates moments not bound to time. Celestial and earthbound settings often mingle in his works to creat e a space free from our known society yet afloat in cultural commentary.&nb sp\;Whether a comical social critique by Ken Graves or James Gallagher or a n intimate family portrait threaded by Carolle Benitah\, the collage genera tes newfound connections between recognizable forms\, creating a unique ima ge independent from our reality while strangely familiar. \;
\n \;\n
In the early twentiet h century\, Dadaist montage rejected reason. With ideologies regarding iden tity at the forefront of political strife\, surrealist art attempted to esc ape the categorization of the self. Allusions to the other\, the alternate\ , and the unknown frequent a surreal image. Examining her own identity\, An negret Soltau states\, "to me relying on one permanent identity makes no se nse. It makes no sense if you are always supposed to be 'the self\,' the on e and only 'self'." The multiplicity of her own image\, spliced and sewn\, demonstrates the substance of the female identity through a critique of the documents that dictate and constrict a woman's role. In a literal interpre tation of multiplicity\, Solinas' Phé\;nomè\;nes depict forty-f our sets of twins. Displayed in the manner of a 19th century scientific doc ument\, the organization creates a detachment\, implying the otherness of t he twins in the photographs. Using recognizable imagery in new contexts\, t hese collages present alternate perceptions of our own world\, providing a surreal space left for interpretation.  \;
