Art Review

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

Patrick McGrath Muñiz @ Krab Jab Studio
https://krabjabstudio.com/shop/patrick-mcgrath-muniz/   Mr. Muniz does a terrific job of providing a fully encompassed swipe, if not coy jab, at American consumerism by treating it in a satirically sacramental manner. Indeed, the lust for the almighty profit, which drives the levers of the multinational mass consumer conglomerate (and the most iconic of these organizations are front

Jacques Flechemuller @ Good Luck Art Gallery
In this solo exhibition, Jacques Flechemuller defines “cheeky” for us. In which, we have the indication of humor, but something that is smarmy. It never broaches the terrain of condescension-gladly-, yet it can, because of its acidity, deliver a provocation to the subject upon perception. It does so by presenting not so much disturbing images

Beside You Jolene Lai Solo Exhibition at ThinkSpace Art Gallery
The ThinkSpace Gallery for me is beginning to develop a pattern of the style of artist they seek to shelter and showcase, and at the most basic is the artist who has become a master of technique. That is, the artist who is more than adept at painting a photorealistic artwork, where the abundant use

PhotoLA @ REEF
The 26th edition of PhotoLA was eye opening. It was not the photography per se which made such an enchanting pass at originality and human creativity, though to be sure it was there in spades; it was the utter awakening, more epiphany, of being able to perceive what photography’s role is in human artistry. Perhaps

Ocean Exhibit @ Beyond The Lines Gallery
There is some form of the sacred captured uniquely in an oceanic scenery. At the edge of the landed world, where there is nothing but a blue horizon yonder, where blue heaven and blue sky become uniform, one can have a mystical experience were it such a privileged resort. For those coastal residents who were

Abe Begalin Solo Show
Abe Begalin took possession of half of an art gallery, filling that half with viscerally imposing, even daunting, monuments to an indeterminate scientific future. It is, in his own way, a contribution to science fiction which in itself is a categorization of the fantasizing of science, more or less. And with such fantasizing of science,

The Seductive Line: Eroticism in the Early 20th Century Germany
Modern German artists, especially enveloped in the Weimar Republic, have an eerie perspective on the nature of humanity. As is demonstrated with these etchings, there is no longer a celebration or a humanism in representing mankind. Note how historically in the West, and recharged with the Renaissance, the anthropomorphic form was consistently utilized to imagine
