Nicodim Gallery Los Angeles is pleased to present 12 new paintings by Romanian artist Șerban Savu.
& nbsp\;
In the new body of works\, Savu continues with his subdued\, de tached and cerebral idiom attained with a curious effect of haziness\, as i f everything were observed through a veil of cool atmosphere. However\, the artist has departed from his previous voyeuristic perspective of the bird& rsquo\;s-eye view\, and lowers his vantage point to the eye level\, bringin g the viewer closer to the subjects. He even takes a further step in a few paintings to depict the interiors of a bedroom where a girl is tripping for the webcam\, an unnamed hall where a man repairing a mural painting\, and a waiting room at a train station where tired passengers are reposing. In e ach \;interior\, there is a picture on the wall. The images-within-imag es or meta-paintings reveal the artist&rsquo\;s critical attitude toward pi ctorial representation\, inasmuch as historically\, since even prior to the Renaissance\, the interplay between the double imagerial representations h as embodied a profound aspect of self-awareness and self-reflection\, be it personal or collective\, in visual terms.
 \;
The title of o ne of his paintings\, \;Impressionist Landscape With Thieves \; (2016)\, \;elucidates the artist&rsquo\;s allusion to ple in-air painting by Impressionist masters\, such as Alfred Sisley and Camill e Pissarro who employed delicate\, dry and slow dabs to render nature and s easons. Savu&rsquo\;s landscapes and now interiors are meticulously constru cted with diagonal lines to create spatial recession in the center\, back t o the horizon\; trees and architectural structures function as frames for h uman actions within: a classical composition resembling Poussin&rsquo\;s. T he theatrical poses of figures that are accentuated by the dramatic staging of light and its induced shadow conjure a visual tension in the mis-en-sce ne. In \;Menage a Trois \;(2016)\, a voluptuous woman is l ounging on the meadow turning her back toward the viewer but facing two men : one is cutting the other&rsquo\;s hair. She is looking down without payin g attention to anything. The man\, sitting upright on a rock\, is depicted with a three-quarter view gazing at the distance to the right\; and the hai rcutter who is facing the viewer concentrates only on his job. They are obl ivious to the viewer. However\, it is their disconnected gazes that direct the viewer&rsquo\;s eyes to explore the entire pictorial plane. In the back ground\, the sun shines through a thick grove of trees and tall flowers ont o a sparkling stream that emerges from the dark woods. The allegorical past oral scene calls to mind \;Pastoral Concert \;(1509) that is now often attributed to Titian by many scholars. Savu fully exploits the tactile potential of the oil paint by applying it with varied densities: s ometimes allowing the weave of the canvas to show through and at others bui lding up the surface with layers of strokes.
 \;
Șerban Savu\ , born 1978\, lives and works in Cluj. Previous solo exhibitions include: S ometimes my Eyes are the Eyes of a Stranger\, Monica De Cardenas Galleria\, Milan (2014)\, Daily Practice for the End of the World\, Plan B Berlin (20 12)\, Overview\, Nicodim Gallery Los Angeles (2012)\, Under the Radar\, PM Gallery and House London (2011)\, Close to Nature\, David Nolan Gallery New York (2011).

The exhibition runs through June 4. Exhi bition hours are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 6 P.M.

Concurrent with the Pop Art movement\, but more radical in it&rsquo\;s expe rimental approach to art-making\, Fluxus flourished in the 60&rsquo\;s\, in spired by the ideas of composer John Cage and (through Cage)\, maverick art ist Marcel Duchamp. &ldquo\;Fluxus rejected the values and convention of hi gh art in favor of new forms that were accessible\, interactive\, hybrid\, and playful. The name Fluxus\, from the Latin flux\, connotes change\, move ment\, renewal and fluidity &ndash\; values that informed every aspect of t he group&rsquo\;s activities.&rdquo\;

lum &\; Poe is pleased to p resent \;Black.\, an exhibition investigating the notion and f unction of monochromatic black painting by way of the work of three artists : Zhu Jinshi\, Quentin Morris\, and Kōji Enokura. Via three distinct impuls es\, the artists convey identity\, practice\, and methodology from the frin ge &ndash\; be it sociopolitical\, geographical\, or spiritual &ndash\; man ifested through a spectrum of scale\, timbre\, and texture\, as a platform for the black pigment palette. \;Black. is comprised of three rooms respectively presenting the work of three artists.

\n

In the first gallery\, the viewer is confronted with Zh u Jinshi&rsquo\;s staggering work titled \;Wall of Air\; ten c anvases adjoined to metal frames\, spanning over 65 feet in length. These p aintings are created through a highly physical process\, oil paint applied to canvas in a manner akin to pouring asphalt pavement for roadwork. The re ference to labor is never distant from the artist&rsquo\;s practice &ndash\ ; coming of age during the onset of the Cultural Revolution of China\, Zhu was assigned factory work as a youth and thereafter developed his painterly skills by apprenticeship and without formal academic training. Zhu has con sistently experienced the position of the outsider &ndash\; operating on th e sociopolitical fringe of oppressive Cultural Revolution era China by virt ue of being an experimental artist\; and in self-exile\, relocating from Be ijing to Berlin in 1986\, remaining in the West for the following twenty ye ars. The color black of this sprawling piece channels Eastern lexicons: Hea ven&rsquo\;s Color (I-Ching)\, Daoist color symbology\, and the artist desc ribes the color as one comprised of five others &ndash\; the antithesis of void and deprivation\, but rather a dynamic amalgam.  \;

\n

In a second room\, Philadelphia artist Quentin Morr is&rsquo\; black monochrome circle paintings float on charcoal walls &ndash \; unframed\, unstretched\, and affixed by only the crest of the canvas. Mo rris has been almost exclusively employing black paint and the form of the circle in his art practice for fifty years\, beginning as a student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. These narrow aesthetic parameters se rve the artist as tools for prodding and navigating identity politics and s pirituality\; they function in the critical analysis and subversion of lade n Western connotations surrounding the color\, and engage signifiers centra l to Buddhist concepts of enlightenment\, transcendence\, and the void. Mor ris explains\, &ldquo\;I began exploring monochromatic painting ... exclusi vely black using a myriad of tonalities and textures to present black's int rinsically enigmatic beauty and infinite depth\, to refute all negative cul tural mythologies about the color\, and ultimately\, to create work that in nately expresses the all encompassing spirituality of life." Morris&rsquo\; process consists of the application of graphite\, powdered pigment\, crayo n\, spray-paint\, ink\, and acrylic to surfaces of canvas\, linen\, mylar\, or found paper as they lay flat on the studio floor. What results is a bod y of work with a plethora of subtle variations\, yielded from a half-centur y meditation on the color black.

\n

The work of Kōji Enokura is rooted in the existential anxiety that permeated Ja pan in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Amid a politically tense climate of antiwar protest and concerns about the environmental cost of Japan&rsquo\;s rapid postwar modernization\, artists focused on the elemental questions o f material and space. At this time\, Enokura was associated with Mono-ha\, a group of artists who explored the qualities of natural and industrial mat erials\, and the interdependent relationships among them and their surround ing space. Discoloring the floors and walls of galleries and outdoor sites with oil\, grease\, soil and mortar\, Enokura&rsquo\;s interventions were s ome of the most enigmatic examples of the Mono-ha practice. From the end of the 1970s\, he shifted these acts of staining onto cotton cloth\, which ar e displayed in the third gallery. The artist built up dense fields of smoot h black paint\, allowing it to bleed into unmarked sections of the canvas. The phenomenological relationship between the wall\, floor\, and everyday o bjects remains crucial to many of these works. In the \;Interventio n \;series\, the artist variously leaned wooden beams against the canvas or affixed bottles\, houseplants\, and electrical sockets to the sur face\; drenching each of them in paint. In the \;Figure A  \;series\, he pinned all-black cloths to the wall and let them fold out ont o the floor.

\n

Zhu Jinshi has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions\, including at Blum &\; Poe\, New Y ork (2016) and Blum &\; Poe\, Los Angeles (2012). \;A retrospective of the artist&rsquo\;s work \;Performance in Paint \;curat ed by Melissa Chiu\, director of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC\, recently closed at the Inside-Out Museum\, Beijing. Othe r important solo shows include \;On the Road\, City of Prague Museum\, Czech Republic (2002)\; \;Tao of Rice Paper\, Museum of Vancouver\, Canada (1997)\; and \;Fangzhen\, DAAD Galerie\, Berlin (1990). \;Recent group exhibitions include \;Alone Toge ther\, Rubell Family Collection\, Miami (2012)\; \;Mind Space: Maximalism in Contrasts\, University of Pittsburgh\, Pennsylvania (20 11)\; and \;China Now &ndash\; Art in Times of Change\, ESSL M useum\, Vienna\, Austria (2006).

\n

Quen tin Morris has exhibited at numerous museums across the country and interna tionally\, including a retrospective of the artist&rsquo\;s work at the Pen nsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts\, Philadelphia in 2004. His work has bee n featured in group exhibitions at such institutions as the African America n Museum in Philadelphia (2006\, 2000)\; Arcadia University Art Gallery\, G lenside\, PA (2001)\; The Drawing Center\, New York\, NY (2002\, 1993)\; Em ory Museum of Art and Archeology\, Atlanta\, GA (1990)\; Moore College of A rt and Design\, Philadelphia\, PA (1991\, 1990\, 1988)\; Museu de Arte Cont emporâ\;nea\, Recife\, Brazil (1993)\; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fin e Arts (2010\, 2004\, 1975)\; Philadelphia Museum of Art (1999)\; and The S tudio Museum in Harlem\, New York\, NY (2009\, 2006\, 2004).  \;

\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">This will be the third exhibition at Blum & amp\; Poe to feature the work of Kōji Enokura\, including a solo exhibition in 2013\, and his inclusion in the monumental\, historical presentation of Mono-ha curated by Mika Yoshitake in 2012\, \;Requiem for the Sun: The Art of Mono-ha. \;The artist has had numerous solo e xhibitions at Japanese galleries and museums\, including the National Museu m of Art\, Osaka (1994)\, and the Museum of Contemporary Art\, Tokyo (2005) .

Blum \;&\; Poe is pleas ed to present an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Julian Hoeber. The exhibition marks Hoeber&rsquo\;s \;sixth solo exhibition wi th the gallery\, and the second chapter of an expansive ongoing project tit led \;Going \;Nowhere. \;

\n

The work of the project centers around designing and imagining an airport terminal &ndash\; one from which there are no flights\, but rather  \;circuitous journeys through the structure itself. This imaginary ter minal functions as a machine for rumination and imagination &ndash\; an exp erience intended for the viewer\, but also directly mimicking the artist&rs quo\;s process and practice\, in and out of the studio.

\n

The title \;Going Nowhere \;carries the double meaning of both the failure to make progress\, as well as the insis tence on permanence. It also plays on the etymology of the word &lsquo\;uto pia\,&rsquo\; which literally \;translates as &lsquo\;nowhere.&rsquo\; The project is in \;part a rewriting of various bits and pieces of Mode rnist utopian endeavors\, some versions more sympathetic than others. With& nbsp\;Going Nowhere \;the artist envisions what it would be li ke to make a space that produces \;contemplation and even laziness\, wh ile simultaneously acting as an architectural metaphor for the radical pote ntial of introspection.

\n

The exhibitio n includes new sculptures comprised of fiberglass-reinforced gypsum-cement\ ; molds used for producing objects that are repurposed as sculptures in and of themselves\; structural wall reliefs of curious\, meticulous forms\; as well as \;works on paper. Many of the artworks in the exhibition are p art idea-development\, part model\, and part self-contained\, informing in greater detail what the form of the airport may be &mdash\; and solidifying the artist&rsquo\;s desire to imagine the building as generative of more t han just a product of its inhabitants.

\n

Developing a formal vocabulary which fuels Hoeber to produce an ever-evol ving environment that allows for this sort of return to the center of a str ucture (or to the center of the self)\, this newest body of work \;crib s from the ideas and forms of Gin Wong\, Janet Bennett\, and Charles D. Kra tka who worked for William Pereira on the design of the Los Angeles Interna tional Airport. As well\, the work explores and riffs off of the mathematic al architecture of Anne Tyng\, who worked closely with Louis I. Kahn and is seen as a precursor to contemporary computational architecture. Through po etics and metaphor\, Hoeber&rsquo\;s ongoing collaborative processes utiliz e the forms and materials to continuously sculpt negative space.

\n

Julian Hoeber \;(b. 1974\, Philadelphia\, P A) has a BA in Art History from Tufts University\, a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts\, Boston\, and an MFA from Art Center College of D esign\, Pasadena. His work is featured in public and private collections in ternationally including Dallas Museum of Art\; Deste Foundation Centre for Contemporary Art\, Athens\; Hammer Museum\, Los Angeles\; Museum of Contemp orary Art\, Los Angeles\; Museum of Modern Art\, New York\; Nasher Sculptur e Center\, Dallas\; Rosenblum Collection\, Paris\; Rubell Family Collection \, Miami\; Francis Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery\, Skidmore Co llege\, Saratoga Springs\, NY\; and the Western Bridge Museum\, Seattle.

Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to an announce an exhibition of experimental photography by New York artist  \;Chuck Kelton. The exhibition is the artist&rsquo\;s first solo show with the gallery.

\n

Kelton works inside the darkroom transforming light\, paper and chemistry into rich\, abstract landscapes that express the beauty and function of silver photographic mat erials. Because his practice foregoes cameras and negatives\, each work is rendered entirely unique.

\n

Gold chlori de and selenium toned chemograms coax a surprising palette of fiery oranges and lush violets from gelatin silver paper. In a smaller suite of work\, K elton combines chemogram and photogram techniques\; the shift marked with a cracked\, folded horizon line separating swirling tones from values that t ransition into a subtle\, velvety black.

\n

The image in a photogram is the result of exposing photographic paper t o light&mdash\;writing with light. Whereas the image in a chemogra m is the outcome of exposing photographic paper to developer and fixer&mdas h\;writing with chemistry.

\n

A fter decades of working with negative based imagery\, Kelton turned his eye towards a reduced pictorial space. He stripped photographic materials down to the studs\; building essential\, minimalist compositions of black and w hite lines. In subsequent series\, he pushed color back into the structure by exploring early processes like gold and iron toning using new and expire d chemicals.

\n

&ldquo\;The darkroom experience has always had a magical place in my life. Though the materials change\, the thrill of the darkroom drama remains the same. The process ha s been going on for more than 150 years and every time you make a print\, y ou are tied into that history.&rdquo\;

\n

&mdash\;Chuck Kelton interview with Onward Photo

Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by New York artist \;Mark Sh einkman. The exhibition marks the artist&rsquo\;s tenth with the galler y.

\n

The compositions in this show are among the artist&rsquo\;s most diverse. Frenetic\, crisscrossing lines and spirographic roulettes cop the language of mechanical drawings and plunge i nto perpetual depths of field. While elsewhere serpentine scribbles and wav ing verticals vibrate into optical illusions focused more immediately on th e surface.

\n

The paintings follow a sub tractive and additive process. Crushed graphite covers linen coated with wh ite oil and alkyd. Then Sheinkman&mdash\;wielding an eraser\, brushes and v arious tools&mdash\;carves into and wipes away the dark gray to expose the layers underneath. More graphite is applied and the method repeats\; creati ng endless monochromatic variations of line and space.

\n

"The method yields inverted values: the drawings vagu ely resemble photographic negatives\, luminous tracery floating within dark fields. Sheinkman's all-over lines are kin to Jackson Pollock's skeins of paint and Brice Marden's calligraphic lyricism\, but they have a distinctiv e ephemeral quality\, somewhere between wisps of smoke and the ghost-like t races on X-rays.&ldquo\;

\n

&mdash\ ;Leah Ollman\, Los Angeles Times

\n

Shei nkman was born in New York in 1963 and received a B.A. from Princeton Unive rsity. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of M odern Art\, New York\; the Metropolitan Museum of Art\, New York\; the Whit ney Museum of American Art\, New York\; the National Gallery of Art\, Washi ngton\, D.C.\; and the Museum of Fine Arts\, Houston\, among others. He has exhibited regularly in the United States and abroad\, including solo exhib itions at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art\, Kansas City\, MO\; the Gr and Rapids Art Museum\, Grand Rapids\, Michigan\; and the Museum Gegenstand sfreier Kunst\, Otterndorf\, Germany.
