Genie Davis reviews Christine Frerichs’ Beacon in art ltd. 2.22.17

(Klowden Mann Gallery, Culver City) Christine Frerichs creates layered, complex works that are rich, thick and textured, a world that dazzles with light. Titled “Beacon,” the artist creates a more distinguishable landscape imagery than in previous work, referencing the light and atmosphere of places which have emotional significance for her, such as Los Angeles, Tucson and New York.
The paintings in this exhibition are the result of what the artist terms “a conceptual and sensorial investigation of subjects such as the sea, the sky, ... (read more)

Goalkeepers
Feb 09, 2017 - Rodrigo Valenzuela
Goalkeepers are interesting because when you’re a kid, nobody wants to be the goalie – actually in a pick up game the last one to be selected is the goal keeper. The professional goalkeeper is the base of the team, the only player that keeps an eye on the structure of the game, and here is where the analogy plays more in my photo seires. His job is an act of disappearance. For example, if no one ... (read more)

Bernard Chadwick’s I Dream of You review in Art Scene 1.4.17

The spiritually beautiful video and sound creation of Bernard Chadwick, “I Dream of You,” nicely conveys a sense of wonder. Using fourteen different audio channels and multiple projectors, the piece is triggered by sounds and sensors to create a constantly evolving series of visual and aural sensations. Abstract and haunting, images shift from screen to screen and onto walls. The artist has described the work as an “abstract music video,” which is apt. The experience plunges the viewer/listener into a space filled with ... (read more)

Bernard Chadwick "I Dream of You" @ Klowdenmann Gallery In Los Angeles
December 21, 2016

Bernard Chadwick describes the piece as an “abstract music video; a song that is reaching out for a body.” Projectors mounted throughout the center of the space throw images onto six suspended screens, an uneven spiral of visual information that spills from screen to screen and throws back onto the walls. Though Chadwick gives us every element of a song, taken apart and pieced back together there is never a ... (read more)

You might have even gone ahead and opened a bottle of champaign before things even got started. That’s how good you felt. We had it in the bag.It’s true that a few among the party ... (read more)
