In LA: Lari Pittman "From A Late Western Impaerium" @ Regen Projects

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Some shows need to be seen in person, in a big spacious gallery, where gigantic canvases can overwhelm you in their peaceful positioning. And even though we just used a bunch of words that mean there are big paintings hanging at Regen Projects this month in Lari Pittman's "From A Late Western Impaerium," there are also highly detailed drawings and paintings that also suck you into their mysterious language and context.

The Art of Fredrik Söderberg
