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 […]

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

Posted on October 19th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

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. The genuine industrial technique required to concoct each piece, transcending mere photograph […]

‘Symbolic Gestures’ feat. Bruce Rubenstein @ Castelli Art Space

Posted on October 11th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Bruce Rubenstein exhibits a trio of artwork at Castelli Art Space which are positively maddening in their tempestuousness. Not to be confused with poorer derivatives of abstract art, Mr. Rubenstein tattoos his compositions with a secretion of unwieldiness which is incomparable to those with an aim at duplication, rather than inspiration. It is this abundant […]

‘Radiate’ by Karen Amy Finkel Fishof @ dnj Gallery

Posted on September 24th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Karen Amy Finkel Fishof presents a compendium of optimism in her latest opening titled Radiate at the always welcoming dnj Gallery. The works all speak to a unifying theme of enthusiasm for the creation active in all facets of common American society, irrespective of the discrepancies with an ideal human nature. Graciously, Ms. Finkel Fishof […]

‘The New Native’ by Raven Halfmoon @ Nino Mier Gallery

Posted on September 24th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Raven Halfmoon exerts a strong affirmation of the indigenous “native” American spirit in her latest opening at Nino Mier titled The New Native. The splendor in accessing such contemporary art is in its admission to the universal effort of human culture towards the transcendent. It is toward reaching the unseen order, as William James described, […]

‘To Tarry in Prayer/To Terri in Prayer’ by Brittney Leanne Williams @ Zevitas Marcus

Posted on September 17th, 2019 by Joseph A. Hazani

Brittney Leeanne Williams returns to Zevitas Marcus with a solo exhibition which is much more ambitious than her brief appearance a year ago yet still champions a unique style to the canvas. Instead of being demur with her aims and painting with more abstraction, Ms. Williams concentrates the work into a syncretization of biblical lore […]
