Bernard Chadwick’s I Dream of You in Autre 12.21.16

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)

Rebecca Farr in Josh Hagler’s How To Give a Shit No. 7 12.14.16

You were there on that shocking night. I saw you. With a few of your friends nearby, you sat on a plastic chair or a couch or on the floor talking loudly and laughing at jokes while eating pizza or cookies or drinking an alcoholic beverage. 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)

Bettina Hubby in Blouin Art Info 12.14.16

The exhibition marks Bettina Hubby’s first show at the gallery where here sculptures, photographs, and collages will be on display. The sculptures are enigmatic pairs of items one might find at a grocery store — a fresh kiwi and a disposable BIC razor, a yam and a dispenser of dental floss. But each object has been cast in bronze and ... (read more)

Scenes from Untitled Art Fair 2016

One of our favorite fairs is Untitled Art. The tent is always beautiful, with a transparent roof (providing nice, even light) and views of the beach. The layout is interesting, ignoring the conventional aisle and row system. And the curation is right on with great galleries and works. Tomorrow I'm posting some shots of Art Miami. In the meantime, enjoy scenes from this year's Untitled Art fair! - Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Sienna DeGovia in Los Angeles Review of Books 12.14.16

Sienna DeGovia’s sculptural practice incorporates materials ranging from metal, fabric, clay, polymer, paint, and glass to cupcakes, candies, and cakes. Her work explores the
emotional nature of consumption, the societal tendency to veer between excess and austerity, and the theatricality of identity that can result. Food is a consistent actor in her work, in its ability to cross and confuse desire and physical need, and highlight the impossibility of distinguishing between the two. Sienna received her BFA from the California College ... (read more)

Thomas Macker’s Objectvoid reviewed in Casper Journal 11.26.16

Conceptual exhibit offers uncommon experience
Elysia Conner 307-266-0509,
Images appear from black paintings when you touch them. Carpet padding covers the floor of the room and leads to the next, where a thermal-imaging camera scans the space and its visitors. The footage feeds live to a computer tablet screen perched on the wall. Neon-hued lights reveal cartoon-like images in frames jutting perpendicular from the wall on each side.
Thomas Macker’s “Holdout” installation isn’t the typical art exhibit at ... (read more)

Ellen C Caldwells Reviews Rebecca Farr’s Out of Nothing in New American Paintings 11.26.16

Rebecca Farr's “Out of Nothing” is Everything
Multimedia artist Rebecca Farr’s fourth solo show Out of Nothing welcomes viewers into a personal journey and emotional recovery as she uses monumental oil paintings and sculptural installations to explore the process and aftermath of losing her father.
This deeply intimate work is touching, moving, and beautifully real. During the weeks following a divisive election, many Americans are left lost, angry, and vulnerable, in need of soul searching and nurturing — and Farr’s exhibit offers a ... (read more)
