This February, Richard Heller Gallery will be presenting Dreamers, the second solo exhibition at the gallery by Los Angeles based artist, Vanessa Prager. Moving in a bold, new direction with a series of large scale, multi-colored oil paintings, Vanessa Prager’s “imagined” portraits cross the border between the figurative and the abstract with diplomatic immunity.

We remember seeing Edward del Rosario's work at Richard Heller Gallery a few years back, and wanted to revisit this morning. His bio is great: Edward del Rosario was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He was pushed down a flight of stairs when he was two years old. He received his BFA in Painting from the University of Kansas and his MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design.

HIdeaki Kawashima is one of our favorite contemporary Japanese artists, and the fact that Kawashima studied under the great Yoshitomo Nara just makes us like the artist even more. He is set to open a new body of work at his US gallery, Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, with "Back and Forth" opening on October 18th, 2014.

Great idea for this show. As Richard Heller Gallery notes, "The show isn't really about "NSFW" artwork, but the motive to click on something with that tag and the anticipation of not knowing if it really will be inappropriate or just someone else’s opinion of what they deem to be objectionable." The group show curated by Associate Director, Barry Belkin.

Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles are pleased to present Charlie Roberts' sixth solo exhibition in the gallery: "K.I.D.S." For this exhibition Charlie will present new paintings and works on paper. Featured in the May 2013 issue of Juxtapoz, Charlie Roberts' work takes us into the mind-stream of a manic, obsessive and eclectic collector of contemporary pop culture and art history. Everything is sampled and laid our without hierarchical order and judgements. Roberts uses a wide range of materials and masters a furious force as well as a sensitive subtleness.

We showed you last week a preview for Charlie Roberts' new show opening at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica this Saturday, April 12, and now we have a look at the other show opening in the gallery, Canadian artists Neil Farber and Michael Dumontier's new work. As you may or may not know, Farber and Dumontier are founding members of Winnipeg’s Royal Art Lodge, a collaborative group of artists including Marcel Dzama, and Jonathan Pylypchuk. And now they make paintings together... and we like them very much.

Red Hook, Brooklyn based fine artist Dustin Yellin just opened a new body of work, "$50,000, Two Parachutes and a Crab's Suit" at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica this past weekend. For the show, Yellin is showing six-life sized "psychogeographies," a term he's adapted from French situationists of the 1950's, as well as other works encased in glass in a similar vein. The work is inspired by the Terracotta Warriors and Horses...

Maybe you can't make it down to Miami to see what Richard Heller Gallery has in store in their booth at Miami Project, but what you can do in the Southern California region is Heller's exhibition showcase of Firelei Baez' "Appendix to a Memory Table." The show will run through December 14, 2013, with the series of works exploring the intersection between private memory and public spaces, delving into her interest in the corporeality of history and culture.
