Out of Thin Air
Welcome to the City of Angels. Often called the “Creative Capital of the World,” Los Angeles is an assemblage of people, places, and ideas, blending and overlaying influences from across the world. This exhibition, curated by Ginger Van Hook, celebrates eleven contemporary artists who derive inspiration, interpretation, and motivation from living in Los Angeles. Offering original artworks, which seemingly come out of thin air, these artists reflect on their physical and metaphorical surroundings.
Kenneth Ober, Luke Van Hook, Holly Tempo, Hung Viet Nguyen, and Michael Giancristiano demonstrate diverse approaches in examining and interpreting the landscape, both in its natural and urban states. From intricate renderings to fields of repetitive patterns, each artist has an individual aesthetic response to the environment.
Renée Fox takes a micro view of nature in her artworks. Narrowing her focus to the propagation of a flower, or the power of a single seed, Fox shows an appreciation for minuscule forms of life.
Artists Shizuko Greenblatt, Michael Massenburg, Steve Fujimoto, and Mark X Farina mix color, symbols, and pop culture to express energy, sound, and comic book morality. Scott Grieger uses digital technology, art, and design to manipulate and adopt elements such as a splash of paint from a drawing and color from a neon sign on the Las Vegas strip into a formal and balanced composition of color, texture, and form.
