Printed Matter LA Art Book Fair at The Geffen Contemporary:
Laura Krifka at CB1 Gallery – We visited the new space of CB1 Gallery to see Laura Krifka’s exhibit. Her work is somewhere between Hollywood set and neoclassical painting, warping both human scale and gender identity. Her stop action video, Sow the Wind, 2014 is extraordinary.
Also at CB1 Gallery, Emily Davis Adams who creates very refined watercolor paintings focusing on the sidewalk near her Brooklyn home.
Mira Darcy Is She Is She Psychic exhibit at Night Gallery
Chana Horowitz at Francois Ghebaly Gallery – We fell in love with Chana Horowitz all over again when we saw these in Francois Ghebaly’s office. Horowitz is an artist ahead of her time and was very much on the cutting edge of art and technology before anyone really understood what that meant.
Eric Wesley at 356 S. Mission Road – We loved his stained glass burrito window installations.
Studio visits are always such a highlight of our job. We spent some time with John Houck in his new studio. John’s unique visual language comes from his background in architecture and computer science. His work is a great example of the innovation that happens when art and science converge. It’s been great to see how his work continues to evolve. We’re big fans!
