Origins + Intersections
Origins + Intersections, the new exhibition at Brand Library Art Galleries, showcases the work of four Los Angeles area artists working in a variety of media, including sculptural installation, photography, oil on canvas, oil on silver gelatin prints and mixed media. The themes they explore in their art are as varied as their means of expression yet they all have their origins in the innate desire to understand and define what it means to be human. As this question is pursued by the artists we find their themes intersecting at various junctures: the natural world and consumer culture, how to sustain both the body and the mind, landscapes of memory and the physical landscape in which we live. These individual lines of inquiry and the ways in which they overlap pose many questions, making this a compelling exhibition that promises to engage gallery visitors.
