‘Unity’ by Susan Kaufer Carey @ The Hive Gallery

Posted on March 18th, 2020 by Joseph A. Hazani

Amidst the Hive Gallery there was a superb effort by Susan Kaufer Carey to capture harmony, or rather, as the title is named, unity. The sweet innocence of playtime is an important reminder of the primacy of exercising our agencies towards, not so much grandeur, but in polarity to misery. This, one can say, is the […]

‘Within the Lines’ by Dinesh Boaz @ dnj Gallery

Posted on March 11th, 2020 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Dinesh Boaz at dnj Gallery presents us with unique perspectives on the natural harmony between man and Nature. While the collection is overwhelmingly represented by the nakedness of Mother Earth, it is accentuated by the taciturn inclusion of humanity, appearing every so minutely and microscopically compared to the grandeur of the terrestrial. It is […]

Margie Livingston: The Earth is a Brush @ Luis de Jesus Los Angeles

Posted on March 9th, 2020 by Joseph A. Hazani

Margie Livingston presents an ethereal elementalism at her opening The Earth is a Brush at Luis de Jesus Los Angeles. Her compositions may dawn on haunting, yet not in an adversarial manner. Instead, the works tempt us with a salvation of calmness, wrestling away thoughts of irascibility with the presence of a mild tranquility. The […]

‘Visual Adventures’ by Bedri Baykam @ Glora Delson Contemporary Arts

Posted on January 15th, 2020 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Bedri Baykam at Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts titillates with a collection of playful mixed media representing the inner consciousness of an enduring artistic spirit and its Oriental congealment within contemporary Western Culture. Most eruptive within contemporary culture in the West is the domineering of mass media, and its couplet the mass consumer. With the dominant […]

Urban Ecologies: A Pattern Language by Michael Braden @ George Billis Gallery Los Angeles

Posted on December 6th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

In his most recent opening at George Billis Los Angeles, Mr. Michael Braden is seeking to restore balance to the ecology of Planet Earth in an effort to guide our perceptions towards equilibrium rather than towards devastation in an incredibly minimalist, mollifying manner; as a tonic for the seismic technological shifts that have compounded during […]

Matt Johnson @ Blum & Poe

Posted on November 18th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Matt Johnson provides the Los Angeles fine art world a dashing sense of confidence in an artistic expression at Blum & Poe which is unavoidably a meditation on equilibrium. His impressive achievement in sculpture is with a playfulness of man-made material to convey, unobtrusively, a sense of balance which may be considered one of the […]

‘Awareness’ w/ Ni Rong, Janna Ireland, and Robert von Sternberg @ dnj Gallery

Posted on November 9th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Dnj gallery’s latest opening, Awareness, presents a humanist expression within our general lens of being social creatures. Yet the beauty of photography, and with the works exhibited, is in the ability to uncloak the world of appearances, of how our minds perceive civilization preternaturally, to reveal the iridescence of an uninterruptible beauty which is the […]

‘About Blank’ by Nadia Jaber @ No Free Bread Gallery

Posted on November 1st, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Nadia Jaber presents a very thorough critique of our contemporary world with her art opening About:Blank at No Free Bread Gallery. Conscientious of how human society is now metered by digital tolls and connection ports, Ms. Jaber attempts to reflect the malleability of our society in response to these abrupt changes to our innate forms […]

‘Iterations’ by Mitra Fabian @ George Billis Gallery Los Angeles

Posted on October 25th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mitra Fabian at George Billis Los Angeles presents a delicacy of sculpture which titillates the mind with curiosity. These works undoubtedly capture a fastidiousness to her method while also appearing sensuously gentle in form. It is this gentleness, despite the defensive extensions of prickliness, which make the sculptures self-described as “organic”. And further to this […]

‘Aquatic Figments’ by Ryan Linke @ dnj Gallery

Ryan Linke at dnj Gallery possesses a spiritual intensity to personally reflective experiences of photography which elicit a sense of awe upon contemplation. These are works which are so intimately crafted, they are testimonies to the presence of the advancement of contemporary art.
