‘Her Paris’ @ Denver Art Museum
(Through January 18th)   The Denver Art Museum has an exhibition titled Her Paris which showcases female French Impressionists. The most rewarding aspect of the exhibition was in the discernible insight that the women bring to the Fine Arts compared to their male Impressionist counterparts. When proclaiming that the women had strong interest in depicting

‘Mourning Wood in Liminal Dawn’ by Christian Rex van Minnen @ Richard Heller Gallery
(Through December 23rd)   Plato was generally anti-artistic for the reason the arts, while rendering reality in an aesthetic manner, can distort it in such a way that its misrepresentation is duplicitous, merely serving the ends of the artist’s wishful ambitions for how reality appears as and not buttressing the affirmation of the human condition.

Javier Carrillo @ Bakersfield Museum of Art
(Through January 14th, 2018)   While the Bakersfield Museum of Art is very small, it has ample space and the intrepidness to showcase to the small Central Valley community contemporary art contra what the general population presumes art to be. It’s understandable why the laymen have umbrage towards contemporary art. Their displeasure is woven with

Tomoharu Murakami @ Kayne Griffin Corcoran
(Through January 18th 2018)   In this exhibition, Tomoharu Murakami introduces us most noticeably with bleakness. When we ask ourselves what is the meaning of bleak, we can connote a dimness; but there’s more. It is connected to our conception of what will become in the future, but in an assertively negative light. A dim

LA Artcore / Lamperouge Fine Art @ The Brewery
There were two openings side by side at the Los Angeles Brewery artist colony last Sunday. I was invited by Carla Viparelli to the first one, where she was debuting new artwork which stressed an unlikely historical harmony. She did so by creating a representation of Western antiquity through the visualization of broken archaeological ceramic

Kim Dingle at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects Art Review
The artist Kim Dingle housed 4 exhibition series at Susan Vielmetter, with the best works radically experimenting with the audience’s foreground space and investigating the nature of aesthetic reproduction. When speaking of “reproduction”, it is meant that the nature of originality with art, or with anything for that manner, is examined. We take a picture,

The Good Luck Gallery | Tieken Gallery LA Review
The Good Luck Gallery had an eerie exhibition from the artist Art Moura. The art tilted towards being slightly disheartening but still welcoming to interrogation with the eyes. The Good Luck Gallery normally does an exquisite job with its space, taking advantage of its high ceilings to cover every possible scope of eyesight with an

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

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
