The mesmerizing narratives of Los Angeles based artist Julian Callos return to WWA Gallery on Saturday October 12th with his second solo exhibition “Cosmos.” Concurrently opening in the Project Room is the group exhibition "Time Will Tell” curated by the artist.
“Cosmos” explores the birth and subsequent evolution of identity by using the creation of Earth and our solar system as metaphors. This new series of paintingshighlights the tension between light and dark along with the tiny details that compose life’s bigger picture as well as our “personal universe”. Semi-autobiographical, the depictions of notable people, events, and experiences are married with the luminous imagery of stars, planets and galaxies that the viewer is invited to discover.
Callos’ ability to capture emotion and suspend moments with careful detail has won him fans in both editorial print and the gallery world. Since Callos’ debut exhibit “The End” in 2011, the artist has kept busy with numerous international exhibitions while freelancing for publications such as LA Weekly and New York Times.
Opening concurrently in the Project Room is "Time Will Tell,” an exhibit curated by Callos that features the distinct and exciting work of peers and colleagues; Laura Bifano, Danielle Buerli, Evan Cummisky, Jessica LL Dalva, Jeremy Enecio, Ken Garduno, Tom Haubrick, Jon MacNair, Nimit Malavia, Sinae Park, Pat Perry, Michael Ramstead, Jeremy Sorese, Jesse Tise, Jeni Yang and Casey Weldon. The exhibit does not center on theme but aids to further highlight these enormously creative individuals whose work often inspires and is admired by Callos.
Open to the public, the gallery reception for both exhibits is from 7 - 10PM Saturday, October 12th. The exhibition will run until November 9th, 2013.
