‘Falling’ by Kiki Kogelnik @ Kayne Griffin

Posted on July 27th, 2021 by Joseph A. Hazani

Kayne Griffin was gracious enough to exhibit the pseudo-psychedelica of a mid-century artist Kiki Kogelnik, most renowned for her pop-artistry. The expansive imaginary elements to her gaping canvases is something befitting for contemporaneity and the smorgasbord of scintillating imagery which seeks to extend the mind of the subject beyond the quotidian. And yet, her compositions […]

‘Confluence’ Gustavo Ramos Rivera @ William Turner Gallery

Posted on July 22nd, 2021 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Gustavo Ramos Rivera showcases strong abstract pigmentations and radical forms as part of the Confluence opening at William Turner Gallery. His wordless ideas painted imbue the artworks which are oft centered about industrial society to give us a more beatific perspective on the rambling nature of men at work – even if this work […]

Posted on July 16th, 2021 by Joseph A. Hazani

In Shulamit Nazarian’s Intersecting Selves opening, Ms. Ebony G. Patterson testifies to the incalculable craftsmanship which is the celebration of being human.

IKUZE! By Kaoru Mansour @ Launch LA

Posted on July 6th, 2021 by Joseph A. Hazani

Ms. Kaoru Mansour affords us a superb entry into her marvelous imagination with her latest exhibition IKUZE! At Launch LA. The artist makes a concerted effort to present cryptic yet accessible meditations on contemporaneous subject matters which provoke us to ponder, until we are beaming from the whimsy which percolates our own mind. Terrifically, each […]

‘Seas’ by Matthew F Fisher @ Ochi Projects

Posted on July 2nd, 2021 by Joseph A. Hazani

Pictures do not do justice to the fastidiousness of Mr. Fisher’s new exhibition Seas at Ochi Projects. The minute yet impeccably mastered compositions – most are painted under one and a half square feet – have one confident theme: the sea and its arrival to shore. One might imagine the subject matter to be derivative, […]

‘Strong Blossoming Thing Forever’ by Sarah Ann Weber @ Anat Ebgi Gallery

Posted on June 23rd, 2021 by Joseph A. Hazani

In the continuation of artistic responses to the world-historical biological phenomenon of COVID-19, Sarah Ann Weber’s call-to-arms at Anat Ebgi Gallery is a return to a blissful natural state. Consistently with her artworks in this exhibition are the positive encouragement of illustrious fantasy which is contained within natural figures. This idea of harmony is one […]

Roy Lichtenstein Review @ The Broad Museum

With the re-opening of the Broad Museum after the world historical COVID-19 pandemic, the vacuum of artistic sunlight and the bitter coldness was rekindled with the beautiful demonstration of new works of art exhibited from the collection’s archive. Most resonant with the unearthing of more of the Broad’s collection were Lichtenstein pieces which provided ample […]

In a mild return to normalcy at the tail-end of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Art Park at La Tierra de la Culebra hosted a festive outdoor gathering which showcased a commitment to a world of always increasing positive opportunities. It showcased, in a word, hope. And the paragon of such a sanguine purview, amidst […]

Thinking of you Art Show @ Brittany Davis Gallery

Posted on March 18th, 2021 by Joseph A. Hazani

Out of the cabin rambunction of Los Angeles pandemic containment, the Brittany Davis Gallery’s Thinking of You Art Show demonstrates jovial relaxation in the artists efforts to permeate the sunlight once again. Stupendously, we have an overwhelming wallop of positivity versus melancholy, as this unfortunate natural catastrophe has invoked in many.     Most outstanding […]

‘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 […]
