One of our favorites here at Jutapoz, Sage Vaughn, is set to open a new show, Life, at the Scion AV Installation space in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 12. The show is described as a "body of work inspired by a word that describes almost anything; it covers so much, it means nothing." Tell that to Kanye. Tell that to Life Magazine. In fact, tell that to the cast of Facts of Life. Check a preview after the jump...

You know when you look at David Hockney's A Bigger Splash and you get that pure joy of flat color framed into a crisp and sharpened representational picture?

Instead of the clean lines of mid-century Los Angeles, we see fragments of brightly colored wood, real palm trees (not the plastic, Southern California kind), and detritus of an area that does not thrive from the economic success that Beverly Hills might revel in.
