Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art is pleased to present &ldquo\;Back to Isla Vista\,&rdquo\; a suite of new oil paintings b y Todd Lanam\, in his second solo exhibition at the galler y.

\n

 \;

\n

With &ldquo\ ;Back to Isla Vista\,&rdquo\; Lanam continues to explore the process of pai nting as it relates to the cognitive process of memory formation and recall . \; The nominal subjects are interior and exterior spaces that remain prominent in the artist&rsquo\;s memory. The ren­\;derings of these spac es\, however\, reflect the constant shifting\, omission\, distortion\, and re-creation of visual memories within the broader context of consciousness. They strive to highlight the inherently transient nature not only of actua l places in the physical realm\, but of our personal experiences of them th at exist within us only in constantly morphing memory.

Lanam received hi s BFA from the California College of the Arts in 2007 and MFA in Painting f rom San Francisco State University in 2011. \; In addition to solo show s at Wolfe Contemporary\, his work has been exhibited at art fairs in Miami \, New York\, and San Francisco\, and in a recent group show at Gallery Hen och in New York.

New York-based artist Lucy Raven uncovers the complexiti es at play in technology through an exploration of topics such as the outso urcing of post-production work for the film industry\, evolving technical s tandards in film projection\, and the immense infrastructure behind the glo bal copper mining industry. For her solo presentation at YBCA\, Raven stage s a new anaglyph 3D video installation entitled Curtains that creates a por trait of an otherwise invisible global assembly line of post-production stu dios worldwide providing a glimpse into the human hands that lie behind the spectacle of fantastic computer-generated simulations. \; A series of screenprints from Raven&rsquo\;s ongoing RPx project are also featured in t he exhibition\, as well as a new lenticular print. Part of the Control: Tec hnology in Culture exhibition series.

Traywick Contemporary is pleased to announce A Desert that Faces an Oce an: an exhibition of new photographs by Ken Fandell. This will be Fand ell&rsquo\;s fourth solo show with Traywick Contemporary. A fully illustrat ed catalog featuring an essay by Los Angeles art critic David Pagel will ac company the exhibition.

\n

 \;The title of the show references Carey McWilliams&rs quo\; 1946 non-fiction book Southern California: an Island on the Land\, in which the author de scribes the region as &ldquo\;a paradox: a desert that faces an ocean.&rdqu o\; Fandell&rsquo\;s latest body of work embraces this paradox through imag ery representative of American culture in the West\, and by exploring the c ollision of mysticism and popular culture\, natural and manmade forces\, an d the intertwining of life and death. As in past series\, the artist reveal s the extraordinary that is often found in the ordinary\, balancing these m oments with a distinct blend of skepticism\, irony\, and humor.

\ n

 \;By using sub tle formal shifts like an unexpected angle or an enlarged scale\, Fandell c reates alternate realities in which to view the work&rsquo\;s surprising su bject matter. The artist methodically arranges quartz crystals in various p atterns: ordered grids\, random groupings\, and cryptic messages\, as if we ighing the stone&rsquo\;s competing scientific and mystical properties. Fan dell&rsquo\;s photograph of Dudleya pulverulenta\, a native California succulent that continues to grow new branches although it appears dead\, and colloquially known as &ldquo\;chalk liveforever\,&rdquo\; references a pop culture fascination wi th comebacks and reincarnation. A portrait of a singular twisted cactus vie wed from below imbues the iconic plant with human characteristics\, as if d epicting an old man clinging to youth. In contrast\, Fandell&rsquo\;s photo graph of his own toddler daughter\, enlarged to monumental proportions\, pr esents an image of distorted innocence.  \;

\n

 \;Ken Fandell has exhibited wi dely both nationally and internationally\, with exhibitions at the Museum o f Contemporary Art\, Chicago\, the Honolulu Museum of Art\, the San Jose In stitute of Contemporary Art\, the University of Delaware\, the Asheville Mu seum of Art\, and the Houston Center for Photography. His work is included in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art\, Museum of Contemporary A rt\, Chicago\, and the Museum of Modern Art\, New York and is currently han ging in the U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria. He has received prestigious awards fr om Artadia\, the Fund for Art and Dialogue\; and The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation. Formerly from Chicago\, he currently lives and works in Souther n California\, where he is the Michael G. and C. Jane Wilson Chair in Arts and the Humanities at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont.

The person I love the most I will no long er love the most. Thousands of bodies\, ghost and flesh alike\, copulating in piles of flour\, grease\, nettle and hair. Putting on the right song at the right time. The person I love the most I will no longer love the most. Was once my job to scour the fields for leftover bones\, flesh and foam\, s perm and dirt scorched in circles and ghost shit. To succeed at becoming an Aghori one must reach the stage that the sage Asanga did. The person I lov e the most will no longer love me the most. I eat the milky spew and feel i t slide inside. Hi. Hello. Had. Song. I throw it up. I feel guilt. When doo rs forced open shut again la flytrap and a petal. The bodies laid to leathe r in the sun or light. I wrote you a few days ago and didn't hear back. Bru nette and swallow. Each time the color changes from ash to red from peach t o bone. Let's meet up for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Where they co uld be dragged back to be grass again. Frenzy in the grass. I feed him manu re in return the worm retells the same joke: The person I love the most wil l no longer love me the most.

Using materials such as billboard posters\, wood and concret e\, Steve More reveals the passage of time in the urban environment. In his recent work\, More utilizes these materials in combination with the repeti tion of precise parallel lines thus creating an I.D. or fingerprint pattern \, further emphasizing the idea of identification. \;The Topography of Time \;expands on the artist's experimentation with the dualit y of identity and history.

\n

This is More&rsquo\;s first show in the USA. He has previously shown in Amsterdam\, Marrakech\, London and Australi a. He is also a member of the international art collective &lsquo\;Agents o f Change&rsquo\; with whom he collaborates on large-scale murals.

1AM Gallery is pleased to pres ent\, &ldquo\;Emergent&rdquo\;\, a group exhibition\, open ing November 6th\, 6:30 &ndash\; 9:30pm. The show will feature works by Chr istopher De Leon\, Daniel Valadez\, Emily Moore\, J.S. Weis\, Leon Loucheur \, Malik Girley\, Monty Guy\, and Steve Javiel.

\n

The process of creating is a journey of exploration. An artist's thoughts\, habits\, instincts\, and history- these are the pixels that tog ether create the portrait of a creative being. The artists themselves are a facilitating conduit\; the elements beneath the conscious surface organize \, interlace\, and emerge from the cocoon of self. It is the Grand Magic\, the emergent properties of style\, substance\, and self.

\n

&ldquo\;Emergent&rdquo\;\, is the mani festation of this idea. It views art not as a linear thought\, but as a tap estry of experience woven by a skilled hand.

\n

Christopher De Leon started with classical trainin g in the arts but didn&rsquo\;t emerge into the art scene until his skillfu l live painting demos at clubs. His passion and talent was soon recognized and he continues to exhibit in galleries around the Bay Area. Leon Loucheur is a self-taught artist whose work focuses on the relatio nship between natural and man-made worlds through the exploration of his ow n psychological biases. Monty Guy\, an up and coming artis t in the last few years\, has hit the scene with his remarkably realistic b lack and white portraits.

\n

J.S . Weis' drawings touch upon an innately human sense of marvel at t he beauty of nature. He encourages viewers to examine the health and vitali ty of nature in relationship with our own well-being. As new artists to 1AM Gallery\, Daniel \;Valadez\, Emily Moore\, and Steve Javiel will be bringing their rich mixed media and portraiture work. Malik Girley is a rising talen t known for his illustrative prowess.
