Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present Mark Whalen’s latest exhibition: “Stranded.“ From his beginnings in Sydney Australia, Whalen has evolved into an artist whose meticulously crafted paintings and sculptures examine the human experience by exploring invention, communication, emotion, sexuality, interaction and ritual – all with an undercurrent of quiet absurdity.

A few weeks back, while the Juxtapoz team was in Los Angeles for the LA Art Book Fair, we stopped by the opening of Victor Castillo's newest work, "Pure Pleasure," along with Mauricio Garrido and Claudia Pena at Merry Karnowsky Gallery. Castillo once again was in top form, not only with a few paintings in the front of the gallery, but his dynamic black and white serigraph pieces were showstoppers unto themselves, along with a beautiful mural in the back of the gallery.

This past weekend, we visited the opening of Travis Louie's newest solo show, Strange Discoveries, at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. We are going to give it to you straight. You Louie's work on the web, as many of us do, and you think, "That has to be digital." On the contrary, you see Louie's work in person, and you can't believe all the works are created by hand, by a very gifted, imaginative artist who has created his own universe of characters... beautiful, inspiring work. Go see it.
