> DESCRIPTION

Roland Reiss has been a major presence in the Los Angeles art world both as an artist and teacher for several decades. During the 1970s and 1980s, the artist created miniature sculptures of scenes from everyday life, which are among his most famous and groundbreaking works, despite the fact that he works primarily as a painter. Organized by the PMCA and curated by Kate Johnson, the exhibition features close to thirty of these miniature scenes. Evoking stress, panic, ambition, fear, insecurity and delight through the narrative tableaux, Reiss examines our society’s semiotics, or codified signifiers of hidden meaning. In addition, the exhibition will also include one of the artist’s most monumental works: a rarely seen life-size representation of a living room entitled, The Castle of Perseverance.

This exhibition is organized by the Pasadena Museum of California Art and curated by Kate Johnson.
