if you have been to The Smith Center, you for sure have seen the amazing sculpture in Symphony Park created by Tim Bavington. and if you haven't seen it yet it would be a great idea to take the family down there and check it out. the idea of creating this film began about a year ago when we received word that Tim was going to be commissioned to create this beautiful project for The Smith Center and Las Vegas. we wanted to follow Tim from concept to completion and let people experience what goes into making a sculpture of this scale. we made the journey to La Paloma Fine Art Studio in California two times to follow the fabricating process of this steel masterpiece and countless hours at Tim Bavington's studio. "its amazing that The Smith Center would support this without something like it existing before, there's no example" this is a quote from Tim that sums up the dedication, devotion and vision that Myron Martin and The Smith Center have for creating something different in and for Las Vegas. next time you are Downtown swing by The Smith Center and check out how pipe dream's can come true.
Mark Moore Gallery is proud to present “Hoof," the gallery’s fourth solo show from Los Angeles based artist Allison Schulnik. Consisting of several new paintings and sculptures, "Hoof" will be her first showing of new work with the gallery in nearly four years. Expanding on her language that traditionally highlights misfits, outcasts, and the misunderstood – Schulnik introduces a wild new cast of mythological creatures replete with centaurettes, unicorns, and otherworldly outsiders in various stages of liberation. Continuing her exploration of selfhood through diverse and rich allegories, her new subjects radiate gracefulness that is both vulnerable and stoic—a type of synthesis that is a hallmark in Schulnik’s work.
Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to present "All The Ways," a solo exhibition of new works by media artist Jason Salavon. This marks Salavon’s third solo show with the gallery.
In his new body of work, Salavon explores the ways in which infinite variation and permutation—supercharged by large networks—is the engine of our exploding digitized culture. Debuting 14 new works in a variety of media, the artist furthers his investigation of the vast visual capacity engendered by an ever-advancing social and technological landscape. With an emphasis on the recent massive exponential growth of digital data, Salavon uses pop cultural touchstones to guide us through various examples of the unbounded possibilities of this phenomenon. Using familiar imagery, such as The Simpsons' long running couch gag, Salavon layers and manipulates visual data into abstraction. By altering the digital information in a new format, he demonstrates the power of interpretation and probability by utilizing the multitudes of storylines and data.
