For the month of November, ROY G BIV Gallery for Emerging Artists features an exhibition of photography by Jesse Kuroiwa and Nick George. Both artists challenge the possibilities of the photographic medium, either by questioning its claim to objectivity or by grounding artistic practice in its fundamental processes.
Jesse Kuroiwa excavates unseen pasts in his photographs of barren American landscapes. He includes captions describing stories and events of Japanese internment in relation to the sett... [more]

I entered the empty Bob Bullock Gallery space on Azusa Pacific's West Campus at 7:55 a few nights ago to see what might be meant by a Judy Pfaff exhibition titled, "The Art of Flower Arranging."
To either side, the long walls of the gallery were covered from the eye level of a child into the open, framing architecture of the ceiling, with bands of photographs in series. The content of these varied from what appeared to be the documentation of bone arrangement in taxonomy and studio sho... [more]

Curator: Lonnie Lee
The mixed-media works of Cheryl Calleri and the oil paintings of Thekla Hammond, together exhibited under the unifying title "Coalesce," complement each other well enough. But the two artists went beyond that level of dialogue and coalesced — or, more prosaically, collaborated — on a joint project, a video installation, "Co-Motion," with music by Armando Mafu... [more]
After the first quick round of Art Synthesis, the eyes quickly bookmark certain works and artists for the latter, slower rounds but the mind, hungry for a single thread of narrative, doesn't find any. On contemplation, that turns out to be the mind's problem, not the artists'. So used our minds are with picking up a curator's text on entrance and viewing the entire exhibition through that lense, that they suddenly feel ill-at-ease when they have to be the meaningmakers themselves. It turns out tha... [more]
The Revelation of Great: Jerome Soimaud
The qualities of a great artist, I suppose, are always up for discussion in the art world. For intellectuals, a great work might be one that elevates the mind or translates an idea. For those who covet the superficial, the captivation of the eye does the trick. Maybe an artist or academician would analyze the work for technical skill: the balance of the composition, manipulation of materials and process, and its maker’s use of color and line, before...

They surround everyone of us everyday yet still we are rarely perceptive. Visual jewels, usually devoid of humans, a mixture of pattern, color and material. Fluke acts a certain part, things appear or are swallowed by light, a different angle brings to light surprises. Harmony as well as dysphoria exist utterly equitable, and every so often details are the spice. If the “urban pattern... [more]
Dina Mitrani, along with potential clients, reflected in the mirrored surface of a daguerrotype by photographer Curtis Wehrfritz. The daguerreotype is created when a positive image is imprinted directly on its silvered surface; Photo by Seanica Howe.
Recently I had an artist, a very successful sculptor actually, sit me down and explain to me the loss of the ability to "do" in our society. Do you know how to make your grandmother's best meal? I don't either, but in the house in... [more]

A Boy Scout Jamboree At Subliminal Projects
" Duane Paul’s huge sculpture of various colored, fragmented scouts have similar effects. Paul’s piece hints at a less overt theme in the show, one that gets outside of the organization’s anti-gay agenda: minorities in American boy scouts have only existed on the margins. His colorful and quietly confrontational figures hit every element of the show–rainbows, black bodies, whit... [more]

Objet Trouvé: Jerry Shevick's Amazing Nudie Pin-Up Show

At the nexus where vintage photography meets pictorialism, photo artist Jerry Shevick has staked out a new territory that somehow seems... [more]

Vintage films are known to have an intrinsic cult following. Maybe it’s because they remind us of the matte simplicity that’s fading in our digital society, or it could be the growing appreciation for classic features—when storylines were still unique and theatrics took fearless risks. Either way, we find ourselves attracted to old school cinema and the bold propaganda-esque designs that adorn their artwork. Regardless the reason for our fantastic obsession, posters from motion fi... [more]
Sabine Dehnel is crafty. Her practice is born in paint and then shifts into installation, sculpture, and photography. It oscillates between so many mediums that it feels more cinematic than artistic. A single painting is realized and then used as the basis for an installation which is then hand preened, cut and formed from textiles, paper, industrial supplies, and a complete tailor’s kit of materials. Th... [more]
