We highly recommend checking out Jen Stark's show that opens tonight, September 28, in Los Angeles. Martha Otero Gallery is pleased to present Jen Stark's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, To the Power Of. Stark's work is instantly recognizable for its breathtaking color spectrums rendered in mind-bending forms cut from paper, wood and other organic materials.

We have had a chance to see a bunch of Dutch artist Parra in California this year. First, it was his massive mural and first US museum showing at the SFMOMA that was outstanding, and now, he is back on the West Coast. He will open a new series of works, Kind Regrets, at HVW8 Gallery, featuring acrylic on canvas works and pen on paper.

Too often in our genre an artist is sprung into the spotlight too early, before they've been able to properly grow, develop their technique and actually experience being a gallery artist as a real job. We've been showing N.C. Winters at Gallery1988 for almost 7 years now, and there is no one we've shown who's been able to improve and benefit from that process more than him.

From the first time we saw the work of Devin Troy Strother at Richard Heller Gallery, we knew the Brooklyn-based artist was someone to follow and could see a bright future ahead. Years later and a few strong showings around the world (plus a Juxtapoz interview in January 2011) we are very excited to see his new works he has prepared for his show at Los Angeles' Richard Heller Gallery, opening September 8.
