Last weekend saw the opening of TrustoCorp’s new solo exhibition “The Future is Blight” at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles. The guerilla art group who are known for a range of polished, occasionally humorous public installations and meticulously fabricated billboards, took on a minimal, more subtle approach displaying work created in a variety of mediums such as sculptures, paintings, work on paper, and prints. Los Angeles’s dichotomy of poverty and wealth was a main focal point of the exhibition and the artists spoke on view towards Los Angeles saying, “Underneath the glossy veneer of tabloid magazines and Hollywood movies, the former middle class is struggling, families are facing poverty and America is slowly becoming a third world country. In the absence of any real help or solid solutions, there is hypocrisy, greed and hopelessness. Through our work, we hope to call attention to this reality, crack a few smiles and hopefully make some people think along the way.”

This Saturday, LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles will open Joshua Petker's newest body of work, Adrift. In a departure from his layered, textural, neon portrait paintings combining portrait and abstract styles, Petker's new exhibition features more conceptual, "nautical themed works as well as a companion series of portraits – still recognizable as the same artist but distinctively different paintings."
