‘Reiterate’ at Launch LA
In a medley of artwork which ranges from the plastically colorful to the ornament of plastic, Launch LA moves us towards an appreciation of fine artistry without a necessary academic pretension. Yet with the works by Ms. Monica Wyatt, Raghubir Kintisch and Lorraine Hetizman, what does this pretension imply? That there is a formality to

‘Tangle’ by Christopher Murphy @ Billis Williams Gallery
In what can only be pronounced as quintessentially fine, Mr. Christopher Murphy introduces us a novel form of refinement in his capture of human life as an after effect of COVID-19 with his Tangle opening at Billis Williams Los Angeles. The plethora of multiplicity in human subject matter is its own commentary on the health

‘On Edge’ by Ulrik Muller @ Susanne Vielmetter
Ulrike Müller at Susanne Vielmetter provides a dutiful effort at better understanding geometrical form through a simplification of pattern, towards an idea of necessary and sufficient with her On Edge opening. It is in the sense of, not so much contrast, as it is boundary which gives us a measured sense of completeness. In such

‘Fruit Vendor’ by Ryan Flores @ Moskowitz Bayse
Mr. Ryan Flores presents us a quintessential idea of cornucopia with his Fruit Vendor opening at Moskowitz Bayse. The ceramic media plays with the idea of vegetation, and the kind which nourishes the body with vitamin richness. This richness is demonstrated with the playfulness of the colors the artist can bring out, as well as

‘Arrangements’ by Tony Matelli @ Nino Mier Gallery
Meanwhile, at Nino Meir, we have a similar sculptural exertion in the botanical, this time as a remedy of doldrum vanity in Mr. Tony Matelli’s Arrangements. For what else is floral décor but a means of imbuing a vacuous space with vacuole splendor? And yet, does plant life display a means or an ends? Shouldn’t

In Your Arms I’m Radiant 1: Rakuko Naito & Tadaaki Kuwayama @ Shoshana Wayne Gallery
In the discourse on solids in the arts, we have a splendid demonstration of elegance, grace, and nature in the works of Ms. Rakuko Naito @ Shoshana Wayne Gallery. Juxtaposed to her ensemble of cosmically-woven textured papers, Mr. Tadaaki Kuwayama has positioned his artwork toward a serious meditation on the idea of space. The totality

‘Long Distance’ by Martin Boyce @ Tanya Bonakdar Gallery
Long Distance by Martin Boyce invites us to appreciate an industrial elegance with the media he employs in most of his exhibition pieces at Tanya Bonadkar Gallery. The sense of brutal with metal, due to its hardness in form, is alleviated by a sense of delicate appearance in the telephone communication device consistently presented in

‘Ripple Effect’ By Dan Lam & Jan Kalab @ Hashimoto Contemporary
Ms. Dan Lam and Mr. Jan Kaláb present to us a healthy medley of scintillating sculpture and canvas with a preciously meticulous treatment of color in their dual opening at Hashimoto Contemporary. The reflectances, specifically from Ms. Lam’s waxy-fun, provides an interesting juxtaposition to the austerely planar yet nonetheless curvilinear treatment of colors by Mr.

Jeff Hirst @ Addington Gallery
Mr. Jeff Hirst presents us with a meditation on certainty in his staunchly thickly-wooded compositions at Addington Gallery. His examinations on the essence of structure gives us tremendous elasticity in the idea, from the gradients of paint thickness to the boisterousness of certain shapes in the composition. Yet it is from this thought of boisterous
