Latin American Masters | Square Rhino Projects (2/2)
(Part 2/2) The Latin American Masters Art Gallery, also found at the Bergamot Station, opened the world wondrously to the late Peruvian Fernando de Szyszlo, whom the gallery labeled the “last Modernist”. And it is easy to understand why. Mr. Szyszlo exhibited interest in working with abstraction, but not to a pedantic degree. These are

‘Beyond the Lines’ | ‘BG Gallery’ Art Review (1/2)
Last Saturday held a slew of art openings on the Westside. The Bergamot Station, as usual, had a prominent exhibition of a multitude of artists in a trio of their galleries. The first on the itinerary was the several artists exhibiting at Beyond the Lines.   The first which caught my eye intently was the

Culver City ArtWalk 2017
It was a beautiful Saturday on Washington Blvd in Culver City, which opened the world to the terrific galleries tucked away on this sleepy street flanked by some of the busiest byways in the city. The art was overwhelmingly positive, and I was fortunate to stumble upon museum-worthy art pieces from Monique Van Genderen at

Brayden Bugazzi Review @ The Mid City Arts Center
Mr. Bugazzi displayed a collection of a dozen or so artworks which were by no means gentle and demur. Each possessed a dynamic force which mostly could not be contained within the composition. They commonly reached and projected outwards, provocatively imposing upon the viewers. While there was a sample of Hollywood kitsch dressed up in

‘A Stranger In Your Home’ | ‘A Cut Above’ @ Shulamit Nazarian | The Loft at Liz’s
There were multiple openings on La Brea Ave Saturday night, and the two I attended provided meaningful works displayed to the audience. The first show, a solo exhibition titles A Stranger in Your Home by the artist Amir. H. Fallah at Shulamit Nazarian, was a peaceful, placating, collection whose sole subject was the Arab refugee crisis.

Moiré Fringe @ Santa Monica Arts Studios/Arena 1 Gallery
  What was most attractive with the Moiré Fringe opening, and of the Santa Monica Art Studios in general, was the intrepidness in exhibiting sculptural artworks. Contemporary sculptural art is in indeterminate ground, an unfortunate victim of the transience of post-modernism’s general blemish upon High Art and the objective of discerning a fundamentally aesthetic piece;

September 9th Bergamot Station Opening
With a blizzard of art in the twilight of summer, the Bergamot Station demonstratively fulfilled its ambitions as an outpost on the edge of Western Civilization for High Art. There was a cornucopia of splendor with at least a dozen art galleries simultaneously holding openings. And the materials and subject matter were various, though there

Transcending Architecture w/Richard Chow @ Neutra
Richard Chow’s latest opening was a phenomenal chance to see his evolution as an artist, toward his current status of invoking in a Promethean manner new structural conceptions. He was able to do so in a sublime manner of capturing realistic geometries but through photographic magic birthed a dreamy, almost Platonically-inspired, form of the triangle

Re-IMAGINED by Messy Masterpiece @ the AC Gallery
The most prominent element to Messy’s artworks is that their compositional material is primarily sprayed paint. One’s first impression of aerosol paint is that of a street artist, using urban locales and other people’s property as their canvases of panoramic, visceral murals of creative typographies. The fact that here Messy is able to refine its

History of Violence by Melanie Pullen @ Bergamot Station
Ms. Pullen attempts, with quite a striking fastidiousness to photographic technique, to create an artistic statement on the use of violence in human society. Ignoring the wonderful technique, however, creates a cacophonous idea on what exactly is being exhibited. The very loose though asserted binding between her two completely independent artistic projects – one being
