LOS ANGELES, CA (December 29th, 2012) - LA Artcore is pleased to present a collaborative/solo show with veteran Los Angeles artist, Peter Liashkov.

Positioned at Artcore's Little Tokyo exhibition space, Liashkov will present works spanning a wide array of media that have arisen through collaboration with a number of friends. In the ongoing exchange between Liashkov and friends, each has extended diverse individual creative approaches, ranging from drawing, painting, and mixed-media collage to photography and sculpture. Each artist has interacted with Liashkov’s materials to visually exchange and transform ideas and aesthetics. The show's centerpiece created exclusively by Liashkov is comprised of two large-scale wire mesh mixed-media pieces and continue Liashkov's decades-long investigation of the human condition through layered use of portraiture and study of the human body as influenced by culture, history and time.

The Peter Liashkov with Friends exhibition presents a fractured narrative dealing with the nature of identity, survival and change. The human body is the central locus of this transformative tale- a sort of shell, inhabited momentarily through a series of disjointed events.  Liashkov likens this work to the writing of W.G. Sebald, where characters are frozen in the past, unable to fully reconcile themselves to the present. The consequence of this stasis is a visual plane where images overflow and history mingles with the present. Both W.G. Sebald and Liashkov explore the fissure between human ego and body, the crack through which the narrative pours.
