"The Vermont Project" by Pamela Mayers-Schoenberg

\n

Ve rmont Avenue\, 1998

\n

Vermont Avenue runs for thirty miles through Lo s Angeles\, from Griffith Park\, through Los Feliz\, Hollywood\, Koreatown\ , and South Central\, to the harbor. It serves by the Observatory\, the Gre ek Theater\, Los Angeles City College\, USC\, and the Coliseum\, but I pref er to focus on the smaller entities of the street: homes\, shops\, schools\ , clubs\, parks\, and markets\, and the people.

\n

It is one\, single community\, made up of independent\, yet interconnecting parts. Los Angeles is\, and has always been\, a great melting-pot. Through my images\, I want to build a collective vision and create an interaction among the various n eighborhoods.

A discussion with Joanne Nucho\, Suzy M. Halajian &\; Sasha U ssef

\n

The session will explore the idea of not-knowing found wit hin the highly contested Lebanese context. Taking Lebanon as a site to unpa ck ideas of not-knowing at the intersection of various temporalities -- eve r-shifting and explosive\, both virtual and "real" -- the session will ques tion imagined states\, the production of memories\, as well as the gaps in historical narratives through an emphasis on contemporary artistic and cult ural practices as well as other interdisciplinary ethnographic modes of inq uiry. Artistic works under discussion include those by Rabih Mroué\;\ , Mounira Al Solh\, Ilaria Lupo\, and Marwa Arsanios. This event will be an open discussion format.

Timothy Robert Smith \;is a Los Angeles painter whose "Kaleidoscopic Realism" jumbles and disorients. His works have an air of visionary fiction that offers a dazzing antidote to what Smith calls the "tunnel vision" of civilization's dominant linearit y. (excerpt from Huffington Post article)

\n

Some of the themes of Timothy Robert Smith's painting s include:

\n

Modern physics and the nature of reality: thi s includes time and space\, hidden/alternate dimensions\, and probable selv es. Showing a cinematic picture of the universe based on these ideas.

\n

Art as Science: à\; la Leonardo Da Vinci

\n

Radical/intuitive/mystical/primitive science and the fine line that ex ists between what is/isn't considered "scientific": for example Nikola Tesl a and his "psychic powers." Also\, how our accepted ideas of physical reali ty are always in flux (see Steven Hawking's The Grand Design).

\n

Consciousness: belief systems and how they alter the nature of reali ty\, The role of "the self" in our technological-based consumer society ("T echnocracy"). The struggle to survive\, the fine line between sanity and in sanity... Who are we really?

\n

The theory that everyone is really their own opposite: we are beautiful Contradictions\, acting out ro les in a theatre of the absurd.

\n

Finding peace within a c ivilization: empowerment through enlightenment.

\n

Enlighte nment: that undefinable sense of knowing. Operating like a Zen koan\, throw ing around paradoxical visual ideas designed to force a temporary glitch in our auto-pilot systems of consciousness. \;

David Molesky was born in \;Washington D.C . He moved to the west coast in 1995 to study fine art and molecular biolog y at UC Berkeley.The science/art relationship combined leads to very intere sting subject matter in his paintings. Mythological symbolism\, animals\, t he sea\, and ancient cultures pervade his work and are reflective of his tr avels to exotic places.Traces of Rembrandt\, as well as the Venetian Renais sance style can be seen in his classical approach to a canvas with the use of light and brushwork. Living in Norway for several years as an apprentice to Odd Nerdrum\, Molesky has managed to absorb his encounter with the Norw egian modern master and generate an artistic style that is quintessentially his own\, This exhibition includes a continuation of a series of figures f inding tranquility in nature juxtaposed with new paintings of political uph eaval. In recent months media coverage of the Kiev protests inspired David to combine his interests in painting figures and fire. \;

Steve Turner Contemporary is pleas ed to present \;El Sueñ\;o De La Razó\;n Produce Monstr uos \;(The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters)\, a solo exhibition by Medellí\;n-based artist Camilo Restrepo\, who creates drawings bas ed on his proximity to the epicenter of drug-related violence in Colombia.< /p>\n

In this\, Restrepo&rsquo\;s second solo exhibition at Steve Turner\ , the artist will present works from two series: \; three large-scale d rawings from \;A Land Reformas well as a group of portraits fr om a new series\, \;Los Caprichos. In both bodies of work\, Re strepo creates images that are based on narco traffickers and the aliases t hey assume as reported daily in Colombian newspapers. The aliases are often based on television and comic book characters\; celebrities\; animals\; an d commercial brands. The childish nature of these assumed identities contra sts starkly to the traffickers&rsquo\; vicious\, violent behavior.

\n

A Land Reform \;consists of seventy individual sheets of paper that are torn from the artist&rsquo\;s drawing book and then crudely taped together. Filled with collaged newspaper clippings and Restrepo&rsquo\;s c artoon-like characters\, the various scenarios are connected by a series of what appear to be red hoses&mdash\;or are they veins of blood? The hoses p ass through the sheet onto the reverse side where there is another complica ted system of hoses\, both sides alluding to the interconnected intricacy o f the armed conflict in Colombia.

\n

Taking his title from Goya&rsquo\ ;s monumental series of etchings filled with images of human folly\, vice a nd absurdity\, Restrepo&rsquo\;s \;Los Caprichos \;cover m uch the same territory in contemporary terms. &ldquo\;Salvador\,&rdquo\; a Dali-like character\, rides a horse whose head has been cut off while balan cing an espresso cup in one hand&mdash\;is it filled with coffee\, or blood ? &ldquo\;Cristobal\,&rdquo\; a cartoon Columbus on bended knee\, holds his sword wrapped in a vein of blood in one hand while taking a cell phone sel fie with his other hand. The tattered\, emblematic sail of the Santa Maria\ , entwined with an arterial-like ribbon\, is beside him.

\n

Each of th e portraits in \;Los Caprichos \;is surrounded by a distre ssed white background\, one that Restrepo created by removing the top skin of paper\, first by weakening it with his saliva\, and then\, by scraping i t away. He then applied tape to heal the wounded paper&mdash\;but the scars remain visible\, yielding a devastated surface consisting of twelve sheets of paper barely held together\, much like Colombian society. But Restrepo& rsquo\;s images\, like Goya&rsquo\;s are not limited to the national enviro nment that inspired them\, they carry the weight of universal human madness .

\n

Camilo Restrepo (born 1973\, Medellí\;n\, Colombia)\, earne d an MFA from CalArts (2013) and a masters degree in aesthetics from the Na tional University of Colombia (2008). He has had solo exhibitions at Steve Turner (2013)\; Untitled\, Miami Beach (2013)\; Galerí\;a Santa Fe\, Bogotá\; (2011)\; Casa Tres Patios\, Medellí\;n (2010)\; Galer& iacute\;a de la Oficina\, Medellí\;n (2010) and LA Galerí\;a\, Bogotá\; (2009). In 2010\, Restrepo was nominated for the Premio Luis Caballero\, the most important prize in Colombia for artists over 35.

A Good Line: Can&rsquo\;t Live Wi thout You

\n

April 19th \; to May 30th \; 2014

\n

Opening reception: Saturday Apr il 19th \; 6-8pm

\n

Anna Meliksetian and Michael Briggs are pleased to present A G ood Line: Can&rsquo\;t Live Without You\, \;Christiane Lyons&rsquo \; second solo show at the gallery.

\n

Lyons&rsquo\; practice is driven by an ongoing investigation into the process of painting and the use of \;appropriated material to recontexualize images and provoke new meanings and visual intepretations.< /span>

\n

The works in A Go od Line: Can&rsquo\;t Live Without You are the result of manipulating found imagery by \;drawing upon the foundational\, primary elements of painting. \;The paintings in Lyons&rsquo\; last exhibition\, What G oes Around Comes Around\, drew upon the notion of the \;Rorschach inkblot as their primary compositional device\, an image of bilateral symme try\, and its use \;continues in the current exhibition. This bilateral split offers an opportunity to combine normally \;unrelated source ima gery by means of common colors and shapes\, as well as less obvious \;c ommonalities\, such as abstract notions of symmetry especially in relation to time and historical context. \;Often Lyons&rsquo\; sources are taken from the art historical cano n\, reflecting her interest the production of art \;and the historical and social context in which art works were produced\, along with their reso nance in the \;contemporary world.

\n

A Good Line: Can&rsquo\;t Live Without You is co mprised of nine works\, three different paintings followed by \;the rep etition of each painting three times\; one is the original\, one is its inv erse\, or difference\, and one is \;primary-color or black-and-white ba sed. Lyons uses repetition as a tool to further abstract qualities \;wh en the paintings are viewed as a group\, in addition to the abstract qualit ies created by the use of \;Rorschach&rsquo\;s bilateral symmetry. Lyon s confidently breaks down and reassembles colors and forms\, \;patterns and structures and blurs the lines between abstraction and representation. Not only is Lyons \;concerned with paintings theoretical history\, but also its technical history as well\, posing questions \;about current image making and representation in general.

\n

Christiane Lyons received her MFA in Painting/Dr awing in 2004 from the University of California LosAngeles (UCLA) and her B A from the University of California\, Berkeley. She lives and works in Los& nbsp\;Angeles and San Francisco.

Rose Cabat (b. 1914 )\, one of the United States&rsquo\; most reclusive ceramists\, and certain ly one of the oldest of the few well-known mid-20th century ceramists still alive and producing today. \; Couturier Gallery is honored to present Rose Cabat &ndash\; 100 Years\, a solo show for t he distinguished ceramist celebrating her 100th birthday. \; The show will include her famous &ldquo\;feelies&rdquo\; &ndash\; seductiv e\, wheel-thrown porcelain closed-forms with her satin matte jewel-colored glazes dating from the 1960s to the present. \; The opening rec eption is Saturday\, May 17 from 6-8pm.

\n

 \;  \; &n bsp\;  \;  \;  \;  \;The list of renowned 20th c entury American ceramists is long and impressive\, with the likes of Gertru d and Otto Natzler\, Peter Voulkos\, Vivika &\; Otto Heino and Paul Sold ner to name but a few. \; All have in common a link with schools and ar t centers where they either taught\, studied or did both. \; Rose Cabat \, a New York City native\, did neither.  \;Her husband\, Erni Cabat\, an aspiring artist\, in the 1930s brought home a lump of clay which Rose pr omptly began to play with resulting in work that encouraged Erni to enroll her at the Greenwich Settlement House in the Village in New York City where Rose threw simple utilitarian forms. \; It wasn&rsquo\;t until the lat e 1950s\, with the help of Erni\, that she developed a glaze they called th e &ldquo\;feelie glaze&rdquo\; which would become part of her signature wor k. \; The glaze\, a variety of jewel-colored greens\, turquoises\, coba lt blues\, onion-skin browns\, whites\, lavenders has a satin matte sheen t hat texturally feels like silk\, and applied to the closed-forms ranging fr om chicken egg size to larger spherical and ovoid porcelain forms called &l dquo\;feelies.&rdquo\;

\n

 \;  \;  \;  \;  \; &nbs p\;  \;Rose Cabat has spent the better part of the past fifty-four year s  \;perfecting the forms of the &rdquo\;feelies&rdquo\; imbuing them w ith a Zen perfection. \; Like Gertrud Natzler\, who when asked why she continued throwing bowls replied she was after perfection\, Rose Cabat set her sights on the same ideal. \;  \;It is one reason why Rose has a lways preferred to work alone\, even today while confined to a wheel chair limiting her mobility and ability to raise herself up to make the larger wo rks she was able to throw when she had use of her legs. \; She prefers the solitude allowing her precise focus eschewing the slightest interferenc e of another&rsquo\;s presence. \; \; It is this consistency in her work that has generated a burgeoning interest on the part of curators and collectors alike.
