‘Still Wet’ Bedri Baykam @ Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts
What is the impetus of the creative burst if not to add to life? And what a simplistic statement in achieving such an extension that we have with the new editions of Bedri Baykam’s work at Gloria Delson Contemporary Art. The eloquent statements of beauty provide that staunch confidence yet without a sense of pretentiousness

‘Deep’ by Bryan Ida @ Billis Williams Gallery
Mr. Bryan Ida gives us a beautiful meditation on human intervention in natural forces with his Deep opening at Billis Willliams Gallery. The prima facie cryptic ideal which involves precious wildlife and terraneous forms imposed with geometrical rectilineal forms is best understood as the rational extension of the human mind onto a world which forever

‘Voice of the Sacred’ by Hyun Ae Kang @ Shatto Gallery
Hyun Ae Kang introduces to us novelty in the concept of texture with her Voice of The Sacred exhibition at Shatto Gallery. Her abundance of styles provides a satisfaction with not simply the licks off the canvas, but of smears, of glistens, of intensities in simplicity as well as in ornamentation. Hers is a delicious

‘The Harvest’ by David Hicks @ Diane Rosenstein Gallery
What does it mean to harvest? To reap what one has sowed. In this necessarily positive fulfillment, Mr. David Hicks brings to market a delectable offering of pious meditation on the herbage fulfilled in his Central Coastal California nativity at Diane Rosenstein Gallery. It is in this honest toil towards producing what is necessary for

These works demonstrate a noteworthy transition in the continuity of the Western Fine Arts Tradition, away from scenes of intense and vivid religiosity towards the mundane and bromidic. His artworks seldom strain to make efforts at capturing something forcefully

‘Echoes’ by Sarah Gilfillan @ Sarah Brook Gallery
Ms. Sarah Gilfillan introduces us to an extension of surreal self-reliance with her abstract forms with her ‘Echoes’ opening at Sarah Brook Gallery. Her ideas are emblematic of her time in the desert meditation on the “rude”-as Thomas Carlyle would describe the desert – or crude simplicity in form. The simple and base tones, in

‘Warmer Mornings Sharper Nights’ by Jonathan Edelhuber @ Over the Influence
Mr. Jonathan Edelhuber at Over the Influence Gallery in downtown Los Angeles poses an assertive stance of fun with the concept of skull form to help us bring a new idea of beauty with endless permutations. The real fun is in how the artist makes use of what is typically reminiscent of boneyards, despotic totalitarian

‘Veils’ by Marc Breslin @ Anna Zorina Gallery
Marc Breslin introduces to the world a daring vote of simplicity with his ‘Veils’ exhibition at Anna Zorina Gallery in Los Angeles. In challenging the convention of beauty as needing to be colorful, the transcendental extension of his whites and blacks gives us a new idea, a better appreciation, of what oftentimes is negatively attributed

‘Education and Manner’ by Jesse Wine @ Frieze LA
This is a monumental discovery in human refinement provided to the world by Jesse Wine via The Modern Institute. Towards causing greater understanding of the concept of smoothness: of a functionally active space which resonates an imperceptible notion of blue motion.   That the animation of the sculpture is through such suave assuaging, such attention
