Nosego "Open Channels" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Concurrently on view at Thinkspace are new works by Philadelphia based artist Yis Goodwin, aka Nosego, in Open Channels. A highly accomplished fine artist, illustrator, and street artist, Nosego’s works are visionary. Simultaneously totemic and whimsical, the artist’s imagery seamlessly combines the flippancy and play of humor with the suggestion of an imposing, even mythically ancient, source of animalistic power. Imaginatively beautiful and strangely grotesque, Nosego captures a myriad of conflicting...

Joram Roukes "Paramnesia" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 11, 2014
Next Saturday, July 19th, Thinkspace will be presenting new works by Dutch artist Joram Roukes (April, 2013) in Paramnesia. Roukes has been residing and working in Los Angeles over the past six months, drawing inspiration from his time spent in the city for this new body of work. Combining imagery distilled from the observed and the imagined, the artist’s paintings invoke a schizophrenic contemporaneity colonized by both disaster and desire. Roukes’ works present us with fractured identities and chasmic experiences: frayed realities ambiguously dramatized through the aberrations of fantasy

Closing: Dina Goldstein "Fallen Princesses" @ CHG Circa Gallery

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 13, 2014
You have one more day to check out Dina Goldstein’s U.S. Debut, a solo exhibition of the pop surrealist photographer’s most recently published series of work, “Fallen Princesses” and “In the Dollhouse”. Goldstein’s own “storyography” conceptual style likely blends the political satire of fellow pop surrealist Ron English and the hyperreal documentary photo technique of Dorothea Lange, creating a contemporary statement unique to Goldstein’s experience in the 21st century.

Kukula and Amy Sol @ Corey Helford Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 13, 2013

Bec Winnel 'Earthly Beings' @ Thinkspace

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 06, 2013
New work entitled Earthly Beings by Australian artist Bec Winnel will be on view in the Thinkspace project room on Saturday, September 7th, with an opening reception at 6pm. An accomplished illustrator, Winnel's portraiture combines the illustrative precision of a graphic artist with the sophistication and emotiveness of a painter. The ethereal quality of the artist's work is the result of carefully accreted layers of color and pencil. 

Preview: Hush "Unseen" @ Corey Helford Gallery, Culver City

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
  On Saturday, May 18th, 2013, Corey Helford Gallery presents “Unseen,” an exhibition of new paintings by international street artist HUSH, his first solo exhibition with the gallery. The women of “Unseen,” enciphered with street tags and abstractions, appear as graffiti specters, colorful visages of noir street action. Under street influence, HUSH paints the exhibit’s imagery as an inward vision, revealing layers of urban histories and figurative dimensions.

Bernard Piffaretti @ Cherry and Martin, LA

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 14, 2013
Among the many shows that opened this weekend in Culver City, Bernard Piffaretti's paintings stuck with us. The playfully bright and energetic abstractions abide by a basic bisected compositional structure, with respective variations in each canvas. The two reflected halves of each frame are comprised of mirroring forms, yet they are not perfectly so.

Preview: Dave MacDowell "Project Mayhem" @ Thinkspace, Culver City

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 08, 2013
This Saturday, January 12, Dave MacDowell opens a big solo show, Project Mayhem, at Thinkspace in Culver City. (Actually, over 40+ galleries in Culver City are opening shows, so its a good night to get arted). Dave MacDowell’s work deftly combines satire, irreverence, and seething wit. A self-taught artist, MacDowell combines popular cultural references with the magnetism of the "dark hook", creating unexpected plays on popular culture that inject the familiar with blistering hyperboles.

The work is on display now through December 22, 2012.
