‘Remember My Child…’ by Amir H. Fallah @ Shulamit Nazarian

Posted on September 17th, 2020 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Amir H. Fallah returns to Shulamit Nazarian with a further telescopic probing of his inner life, presenting us with a more abstract geometrical biographical expression than his previous show. In his show two years prior, there was a stronger emphasis on primacy with the vividness of his colors. Now, we are entranced by a […]

‘Vastness’ by Margaret Lazzari @ George Billis LA

Posted on July 21st, 2020 by Joseph A. Hazani

In the presence of a world-historical phenomenon, Ms. Lazzari testifies to the naturally beautiful at George Billis Gallery LA. It is a wonderful gesture that her most eruptive compositions in Vastness are unstretched canvasses out of creative happenstance due to the COVID-19 limitations. The rawness embellishes on the intrinsic continuum between the artist, the subject, […]

‘The American Dream’ by Isaac Pelayo @ Bruce Lurie Gallery

Posted on July 8th, 2020 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Pelayo contributes to the American Experiment at Bruce Lurie Gallery with a Latino verve to compound the multiplicitous layers of human history that have arrived onto this expansive and rich parcel of North American continental soil. Archiving the nascent ground floor of the Latin American and their ancient Spanish heredity reveals the stark though […]

‘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 […]
