Perfecting compositions with precision accuracy is at the forefront of UCLA Hammer Museum’s current photography exhibition Perfect Likeness: Photography and Composition, on display through September 13, 2015. This exhibition considers a fascinating paradigm in contemporary photography, and the many ways it engages many of today's most important photographers. Serious photographers have long been suspicious of images that are too beautiful, too "photogenic," or too controlled.

One of our favorite artists, Maya Hayuk, will be creating a new site-specific mural on the Lobby Wall of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for her first one-person US museum exhibition. "Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form." Maya was featured in our special December 2009 Barnstormers issue.

Washington, DC-based artist Linn Meyers' work relies on both a calculated approach to composition and the organic evolution of each artwork to create organic, fluid drawings that unfold as her hand drawn lines undulate and vibrate across the larger compositional forms.

A rite of passage in life is to read Jack Kerouac's seminal 1957 novel, On the Road. It is one of the last great American adventure stories. Ed Ruscha seems to feel the same way. Currently on exhibit at UCLA's HAMMER Museum, Ruscha has created an entirely new body of paintings and drawings that take their inspiration from passages in Kerouac’s novel.
