Dualities is a five artists project curated by Janet Levy fo r Arts Brookfield at the Bank of America Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles. The projects are presented concurrently\, one project per month\, during May 1 4 –October 19 cumulating on September 3 with all five projects on view. The selection of the works is drawn from the theory of opposites.  Naturally o ccurring phenomena are grouped into complementary pairs.  Above and below\, earth and sky\, dark and light\, fluid and solid each piece chosen contain s a balance between two interdependent forces.

\n

Taking into consider ation the spacial dynamics of the Bank of America building\, curator Janet Levy carefully selected the works to connect the multi levels\, Parking lev el A\, concourse and plaza as well as the outdoor stairwell. Each area was then matched with an artist and project: 

\n

Project I\, Karen Lofgren ’s “Gold Flood"\,   Project 2\, Matthew Greene “Come Together”\, Project 3\ , Simmons &\; Burke “Clouds Wallpaper”  Project 4\,  Diana Thater “OZ”\,  Project 5\, Ryan Perez “The Escalator to Nowhere.”

\n

On the lowest l evel Karen Lofgren’s “Gold Flood" seeps out from underneath the edges of th e wall\, playing with the relationship between liquid and solid states. Mat thew Greene intertwines the physical and metaphysical in “Come Together” us ing an undulating mass of bodies along outdoor stairwell. They form a seduc tively charged passageway between the material world and a collective subco nscious.  Simmons &\; Burke navigate between darkness and light with “Cl ouds Wallpaper\,”connecting the backdrops of interior and exterior environm ents.  In “OZ” Diana Thater investigates the gap that separates and connect s earth and sky. California poppies bloom downwards into clouds floating up wards in an inverted landscape between floors.  Juxtaposed with their utili tarian counterparts on the bottom floor\, Ryan Perez's “The Escalator to No where” renders moving objects motionless\, a duo of heavy monolithic forms held in place by gravity.

\n
