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

‘MEMORIES OF UNDERDEVELOPMENT’ @ Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego

But

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

‘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.
