Coagula Curatorial is pleased to announce TWO exciting art exhibitions opening at our space on October 27, 2012.

In our main space is an exhibit of new work by two emerging Los Angeles Artists, Vito LoRusso and Leigh Salgado.

Vito LoRusso constructs sculpted wall pictures that reflect the frenetic beauty in the chaos of our times. Working in the mediums of painting, sculpture and assemblage all at once, LoRusso has crafted a visual vocabulary that privileges the appearance of raw expression but frozen so perfectly in its appearance that the artist must also be considered a precision engineer of functionless form.

Leigh Salgado is a pioneer of free-form cut paper picture-making. By abandoning the clichés of craft, pattern and decoration, Salgado has arrived at a raw sensuality in this once cool and precise medium. Her masterful painting and drawing skills resound as they intertwine with the thousands of cuts in the paper surface of her ambitious, large-scale artworks. The results pulsate with a thematic poetry of abstracted and idealized body imagery.

In Coagula’s basement gallery is The Complete Pigment Prints of Llyn Foulkes.

This exhibition is in conjunction with PCP (Patricia Correia Prints), the original publisher of these editions. Between 1999 and 2003, the legendary Los Angeles artist Llyn Foulkes worked with Patricia Correia on a series of pigment prints scanned from a selection of some of his greatest original paintings. This exhibition covers most of the artist’s ouvre, featuring signed and numbered prints of works that will be featured in the 2013 career retrospective of the artist at the Hammer Museum.

Coagula Curatorial is located in the historic Chung King Road Art Galleries in Downtown L.A.’s historic Chinatown. 977 Chung King Road, L.A. 90012

These exhibitions run October 27 thru November 24. The gallery’s opening reception for these two shows is Saturday, October 27, 8 PM – Midnight and will feature a special performance by DUMFUXX presenting excerpts from their forthcoming film and soundtrack, "Asphalt Serenade".
