Posted 10/23/13

http://www.visualartsource.com/index.php?page=editorial&pcID=26&aID=1920 Author: DeWitt Cheng 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...

Dream Vortex Visualization, mixed media on paper, 9 x 12 inches, 2012. (image courtesy of Studio 110 Projects) Imagine… You stand at the center of a vortex. Images swirl around and around, familiar shapes beginning to take form. A solitary buffalo whirls past followed by a group of football players, a humanoid monster stomping on an unsuspecting male figure, another figure appears to be talking to huge flowers. The images appear to be hand drawn, but three-dimensional simultaneously. Y... [more]

Ian Kimmerly at Dolby Chadwick Gallery 6/5/13 Posted 6/5/13

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Continuous Wave, an exhibition of new paintings by Ian Kimmerly. Kimmerly boldly embraces the disparate by integrating various styles and techniques into each painting. Softly blurred photorealistic figures slip between abstract gestures while gleaming, thickly impastoed streaks of paint are counterbalanced by bright, geometric pops of color. Though the final paintings depend on a number of different factors, his process typically involves the same set of... [more]

Alice Channer, Aaron Flint Jamison, Anicka Yi at Altman Siegel Gallery April 18th, 2013 - June 1st, 2013
Posted 4/23/13

O the sleeping bag contains the body but not the dreaming head on show at the Altman Siegel Gallery from April 18th to June 1st, features work by three artists; Alice Channer, Aaron Flint Jamison and Anicke Yi. The title is taken from a poem by Matthea Harvey, a dark meditation on containment, or it’s failure. This is the theme that unites the three artists, whose work at first seems unconnected in medium and subject. Alice Channer’s Body Fluids is the first to confront me as I enter the gallery- a large digital print that is draped over a steel bar hung near... [more]

(Image: Roberta Baker, All Your Dreams Come True, 2010, Art Quilt, 38 X 31 X 0 Inches; © Roberta Baker) Roberta Baker (b. 1947, Boston MA) When I design a new quilt, I begin with the colors. I am passionate about beautiful and harmonious colors. When I work with a clear mind and I keep the joy of creation foremost in my thoughts, I feel an affirmation. Tranquility settles about me. Often people who are looking at my quilts sense this feeling of inner tranquility too. I have chosen to share... [more]

(Image: Hiroko Sakai, Cat, mixed media on paper,15"x18"; © Hiroko Sakai)   Hiroko Sakai (b. Izuka City, Japan) I was born in a small town of northern Kyushu island of Japan in early Spring. I was a shy kid. I liked looking for fairies in grass and reading adventure stories from my gigantic book case. My parents were great patrons of cultures and art and made sure I had many opportunities to grow artistically. It seemed like I have been painting and drawing from my first breath. My school note b... [more]

Los Angeles, CA) I am a sculptor and installation artist interested in the visual displays of decay and growth, as well as time and history as physical entities. Objects, whether undisturbed for long periods, in frequent use, or victims fallen to incidents such as fire or flood, have their own life cycles of accumulation and decomposition. I create these chan... [more]
