LOS ANGELES\, CA (March 22nd\, 2014)L.A. Artcore presents the work of Barry Shaffer and Toban Nichols pres enting visitors with the opportunity to observe how dramatically different approaches to making art rooted in the powerful\, mind-altering visualizati on of landscapes can be. \; Each artist operates from a personal vision that invites us to take new\, considered look at a familiar arena of art.< /p>\n

 \;

\n

Barry Shaffer creates his artwork in direct connect ion with humanitarian aims. Whether traveling with Global Humanitarian Expe ditions to provide dentistry to people without access\, or at home working with organizations like the Exceptional Children&rsquo\;s Foundation\, he c ombines adventure with artistry to create involved social documents. As a p hotographer his eye seeks balance for his compositions\, infusing them with reflective meaning\; adding a sensitivity to nature he creates links to th e present passage of time. \; In a previous exhibit\, his work focused on portraits of L.A. residents aged 80 and over\, called Quiet Heroes. \; In this project\, Ancient Temples &ndash\; Current Conflict s\, purposeful contrasting views of landscapes\, ruins and living peop le offers viewers a chance to connect to people facing conflict across the globe through both eyes and heart.

\n

 \;

\n

Toban Nichols is a highly experimental new media artist working with video installations an d prints\, in this exhibit employing elements of interactive media\, glitch and artificial intelligence to shape and reintroduce us to the landscape. Streaming landscapes layered with mirrored distortions that suggest action as much as the presence of water\, geometric inclusions that play with exis ting colors to tease and intensify the involvement of the brain\, and the t angible presence of technology can be found in the work. \; Nichols has exhibited internationally\, SCOPE New York and Basel\, the Digital Fringe Festival in Melbourne\, Australia\, and the Seattle Art Museum.

LOS ANGELES\, CA (March 15th\, 2014)L.A. Artcore is pleased to announce Latin Americans of Los Angeles\, a special gro up exhibit that envisions a complex portrait of Latin American artists livi ng and working in L.A. L.A. OF L.A. presents a single vantage into the breadth of perspectives of its six selected participants whose creativ e tendencies provide an arena of passionate engagement as they express and relate their inner worlds with the issues and subject matter that most impa ct from the outside. Such an endeavor is prone to be \; the progenitor of new forms that are squeezed from this tension\, such as in Jaime Sabatte's sculptures whose humble materials such as kitchen utens ils and scrap electronics are transformed into the context of an ethereal\, LED-illuminated universe of exotic critters\, battery-powered mobile vehic les\, music-boxes\, figurines and other forms which are cast under Sabatte' s delicate direction. Questions of identity abound viscerally through an in -depth exploration of materials and craftsmanship in the mixed-media works of Miguel Angel Murillo whose images are rendered in three -dimensions by combining carving and painting. In Guadulesa Rivera' s mixed-media paintings\, an exploration of identity and memory ar e channeled through the artist's fascination with investigating colors\, sh apes and overall balanced compositions whose positive affirmations seek to capture fullness and totality of the heart. When hung together\, Lo re Eckelberry's mixed-media portraits communicate vitality drawn f rom everyday life and a celebration of the people that make up the artist's social fabric. Eckelberry digitally manipulates photographs taken of her s ubjects to draw additional inspiration and ideas through the process of edi ting and deciding how to convey her subject. Eckelberry's altered photograp hs represent her subjects in a new space of imagination and reinvention. Fo lklore\, ancient history\, a graphic sensibility and a visionary spirit&nbs p\; shape the narrative language of the drawings\, paintings and prints of Peruvian-American artist Yando Rios\, while a sense of the visionary pervades the paintings of Raoul De La Sota who uses the landscape to channel surrealistic imagery. Both painters are indeb ted to the aesthetics of murals in their works.  \;

\n

 \;

\n

Each artist's distinct approach is reflective of an increasingly cultu rally-melded world where myriad creative influences\, localities\, technolo gies and dialogue extend and overlap. Part of the vitality of this project is in the artist's selected works that reveal a group who openly explore fr ontiers of contemporary culture in their art. \;

George Billis Gallery is pleased to present the first solo s how of painter David Febland's recent work. The exhibition runs from May 17 th to June 28th with an artist reception on May 17th from 5-8pm.

\n

&n bsp\;The artist writes of his work: "My work explores the ever-modulating s pace between aspiration and reality. It&rsquo\;s an uncomfortable place for some\, that sense of not quite being where or what you think you are &ndas h\; a mental state filled with frisson that approximates the combustible ed ge of colliding urban neighborhoods\, its corporeal equivalent. After obser ving just such city spaces for many years\, I have grown to realize that th e concept of an Edge - or more precisely the turmoil where they collide - i s as much a state of mind as a physical reality and therefore eminently tra nsportable."

George Billis Gallery is pleased to present the first solo s how of mixed media artist Paul Rousso's recent work. \; The exhibition features recent large scale three dimensional paper goods from currency to candy wrappers. \; The exhibition runs from May 17th to June 28th with an artist reception on May 17th from 5-8pm.

\n

The artist is quoted as saying\, "I have always searched for what would be the appropriate and dir ect response to 20th century painting. How could one respond to the &ldquo\ ;flattening&rdquo\; and somehow invert it the way\, for instance\, cubism i nverted the realism that came before it? My work is about finding what come s next."

George Billis Gallery is pleased to present Nature Studi es\, an exhibition of Northern California based painter Daniel Phill&r squo\;s new work. \; The exhibition features recent paintings that empl oy an expressionist style to render botanical forms. \; The exhibition runs from May 17th to June 28th with an artist reception on May 17th from 5 -8pm.

Daniel Phill embraces the ambiguity between abstraction an d figuration in his work. \; Plants\, flowers and vegetation appear and vanish into the picture plane\, often submerged under layers of pigment an d washes. A fluid application of paint\, using non-traditional painting too ls\, contributes to achieve results which are intensely colorful and often sensuous. In each painting\, the artist&rsquo\;s use of color dramatizes th e illusion of space and light to produce an ambiance full of both energy an d serenity. He seems to deconstruct the natural environment\, to then recon struct it - using an improvised painterly expressionism. Through gesture an d perception\, Phill creates work that is both organic and unrehearsed.
