Political and Economical
Tinlark Gallery in
Hollywood opens its third show, Coping Mechanisms, April 14, 2007. True to their mission, the show features collectible art of
the highest quality at accessible prices.
Coping Mechanisms, which address the complex physiological states
within the wake of American nihilism, is the first Los Angeles show for Grant Barnhart, fresh from his
sold-out solo show at OKOK Gallery in Seattle. Grant’s multi-layered compositions include animals, humans,
and invented hybrids combined into narratives that both confide and conceal
themselves before the viewer.
Also included in Coping
Mechanisms is artist Nancy Baker
Cahill in her two-person debut at Tinlark Gallery. Baker Cahill’s mixed media
paintings investigate labor, domesticity, and class as applied to women.
In the project room,
Andrew Au’s twelve image series, Banque D’Epoch Eclipse, is a beautifully rendered examination of American
ideologies through the iconography of US currency.
Coping Mechanisms runs
April 14 through May 26. The
opening reception is Saturday, April 14, 4-7 pm and is family friendly with
craft tables for children.
