Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present WET PAINT 4, an exhibition featuring recent work by Tim Brown, Parker Ito, Kour Pour, Sarah Rara, and Kim Ye. A range of media will be exhibited including video, performance, sculpture, installation and painting. This is the fourth annual presentation of WET PAINT, which highlights emerging artists in Los Angeles in a late summer exhibition.

Tim Brown (MFA, UC Santa Barbara, 2012) will exhibit a series of stacked, illuminated sculptures. Parker Ito (BFA, California College of the Arts, 2010) will present The Agony and the Ecstasy, a group of paintings that utilize the highly reflective material of 3M Scotchlite as a canvas. When photographed, Ito's paintings turn into an unrecognizable blur as the reflective material causes a white flash of light to obliterate his nuanced paint gestures. Paintings by Kour Pour (BFA, Otis, 2010) depict distressed and worn Persian and Navajo weavings. Sarah Rara (MFA, USC, 2011) will present Air Quality a new video work that examines transparency, filtering, and the double image. Kim Ye (MFA, UCLA, 2012) will present a sculptural installation featuring a yellow latex impression of her mini-van where she will perform on the night of the opening.

WET PAINT 4 will be on view from Saturday, August 11 through Saturday, August 25, 2012; the opening reception is on Saturday, August 20, between 6 and 9 PM. There will be artist talks on Thursday, August 17 at 7:30 PM.
