LA ARTCORE PRESENTS A GROUP PAINTING SHOW WITH ARTISTS: JULIENNE JOHNSON, GURDON MILLER & ALEXANDER SADOYAN
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 14th, 2013) LA Artcore is pleased to present the work of Julienne Johnson, Gurdon Miller and Alexander Sadoyan at the Brewery Annex gallery from March 3rd to March 31st, 2013. This exhibit is a great opportunity to view under a single roof different perspectives from mature, established artists.
Julienne Johnson creates a highly textural surface and subdued palette. There is curious cross of urgency and the patience of experience that combine to create work that must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Peter Frank has this to say: “Vast as they might be, Julienne Johnson’s paintings maintain a disarming intimacy, confounding our sense of scale even as they launch themselves across the walls.” The curious impact of scale, and the rise above the canvas plane are often mentioned regarding this artist’s work.
Gurdon Miller is an independent thinker who works in a variety of mediums as the inspiration grabs him, including photography, film, painting and drawing. His current paintings are formal and involve color fields and an interest in Modernism. He is very engaged with critical theory and the philosophy behind art, finding in it a means of describing autonomy and at the same time the human relationship to our senses and our environments.
Alexander Sadoyan produces musical abstractions that rely on gestural shapes and instinctual movements that harmonize into individual paintings. His extensive canvas miles show their influence in his portraits as well, where his work with representational images brings out an almost Fauvist sensibility for color. He explains that his paintings are images of his inner landscape and his spiritual life. Put another way, he says the conjuction between human life and abstract shapes is something like an analogy for reality.
