‘Wilde Paintings’ by Yunhee Min @ Susanne Vielmetter
Have we seen all the color that will ever be? Is the human’s eye limited to a finite wheel and amalgam of red, blues, and greens? Even if the resolution is finite there is something laudatory in introducing humanity with the taste of the new in a very cheerfully irradiant manner. It is as if

‘Nightfall’ @ William Turner Gallery
At the William Turner Gallery, Curtis Ripley was presented in an exhibition titled Nightfall. And the series resembles much of the surreal dreamstuff. I can only describe Ripley’s works as being akin to Dalí but with austere abstraction rather than whimsical figurativeness. And the efforts are simply enticing.   A post shared by Joseph Hazani (@jhazani)

442: Original Art from the Graphic Novel @ GR2 Gallery
At the iconoclastic Giant Robot Gallery there housed a collage of the fine workmanship of water colors on display from Rob Sato. Per the artist, this was a challenging, if not his most challenging, effort.   A post shared by Joseph Hazani (@jhazani) on Apr 17, 2018 at 7:40pm PDT Water color is a delicate

Santa Monica Airport Artwalk Review
The Santa Monica Airport Artwalk housed a few gems in an otherwise mediocre display of art produced for mere decorative sake. As mentioned before, there is a fine tug-of-war act that artists must engage in order to sustain themselves, and therefore I am sympathetic to those who love the act of creating art and are

‘Caution’ & ‘Paradejo de la Soledad’ @ Lois Lambert Gallery
(Through May 5th, 2018)   ‘Caution’ is consistent with Lois Lambert Gallery’s opening history. Much like Molding a Hard Rock, the artist Martiros Adalian takes a radical approach to stereotypical Western fine art portraitures, imbuing them with a sense of irreverence through the use of brightly colored textures and action with the irrational painted layers

‘Interior of the Yelling Clinic’ @ Walter Maciel Gallery
The Walter Maciel Gallery exhibited Katherine Sherwood’s Interior of the Yelling Clinic which was an ensemble of her earlier art series’. The most striking of those was Venuses, a collection of inspirations from Manet’s Olympia, but more broadly the Venus motif in Western fine art. The textile weaving of the works on what appeared to

Art Los Angeles Contemporary Review
Two weeks ago housed a terrific cornucopia of refined contemporary art. By refined, I connote the distillation of artistry through the filters of commercial fine art galleries. Commerce is often seen to be a necessary evil with its marriage to artistry. For worse, it can corrupt the aim of art, which is to imitate reality

‘Future Feminine’ @ The Fahey/Klein Gallery
Future Feminine Art Review @ The Fahey/Klein Gallery   The Fahey/Klein Gallery had a massive art party Saturday night which no doubt was assuaged by the conjointly held “Women’s March” the same day. The emphasis here was on photographic depictions of the feminine form, but most intriguing was the direction in which feminism was being

‘Molding a Hard Rock’ @ Lois Lambert Gallery
Rodrigo Branco held an opening titled Molding A Hard Rock at Lois Lambert Gallery. Aside from the bright-eyed, apple-dunking plunge into the primary color yellow which sparkled wonder because of its paradoxical audacity, the portraits Mr. Branco painted bring forward an unheralded technique: the broad brushstrokes of facial obscurity.   A post shared by Joseph

Culver City Arts District January Review
There was a flurry of openings in Culver City’s arts district last Saturday night, which brought about a sheer eclecticism of artistry. Its always a joyous occasion to see such diversity in contemporary art, from the novelty in the media to the compositional matter.   A post shared by Joseph Hazani (@jhazani) on Jan 10,
