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

The beautiful thing about Richard Chow’s photographic art is that it makes such a perennial, concerted effort, to reveal to us the beauty that’s missing in our lives.

The Oakland California Museum of Art houses an eclectic collection of art from over the decades in which the Bay Area was thrusted onto the American cultural landscape. The California Venus best summarizes this forward march and its homage to classical Western fine art and its ancient lineage toward Greek Antiquity.   Yet, culturally speaking,

The Barnes Museum
The Barnes Museum is a precious escape from the beautiful, majestic City Center of Philadelphia, where one feels wondrously imprinted upon them a feeling of American glory. A feeling of virtue and nobility for the struggle and successful achievement of an ideal history writ. In it’s marvelous pseudo-Jerusalem stone architecture holds an impressive collection of

Roy de Forest
What a stunning find Mr. de Forest is. Walking through this exhibit is like taking a trip not on a synthetic psychedelic, but a desert, arid, hallucinogenic like peyote. Shamanistic is the best quintessential description I can find of his work here. It is a spiritual sojourn, yet without any brier patches which encumber the

Michael Jackson and Bubbles
The Broad
The Broad ought to be considered immediately in the pantheon of contemporary art housings, not simply on the American landscape but in the world. The luxury of being able to appreciate the artistic pillage of a billionaire financier, who was aesthetically supported by a wife with decent taste, provides several unusual layers to savor about

SUE DANIELSON
https://www.bridge.productions/sue-danielson.html   Sue Danielson continues this recrudescence of Abstract Expressionism from the mid century in eliminating any preconceived notions of what an emotional image should feel like. Most prominently, she is not content with the mere play of the elements of a composition, and terrifically so, for she reduces a visual art to its bare
