Dabs Myla with Modernica "Before and Further" @ Modernica Factory, Los Angeles
This is going to be awesome. For their most ambitious exhibition to date – artist duo DABSMYLA (last feartured in our May 2015 issue) presents Before and Further, a 4,000 square foot installation takeover of a stand-alone 1930 built Spanish Revival workplace building, located on the Modernica factory property. DABSMYLA have fully transformed its interior and exterior with their newest paintings, sculptures, installations and exclusive furnishings from limited-edition fiberglass shell chairs and hand painted ceramics to custom-built lighting installations, all designed and created exclusively for their collaboration with Modernica utilizing the factory’s extensive technical capabilities.
Before and Further is inspired by the individual life experiences of DABSMYLA - experiences that ultimately resulted in bringing the two artists together and explores their mystical union and shared balance of love, creativity, friendship and sexuality. The significance of two becoming one is most essential to DABSMYLA, in their work and more importantly in their role as husband and wife. Their artistic singularity is evident though the distinguished back-and- forth process of painting they equally share. Before and Further recalls their unseenjourney of experience, the shared creative energy they’ve embraced and their cosmic consciousness of togetherness. This installation exemplifies DABSMYLA’s adventures in modern living and artistic partnershipwith a bit of psychedelic experimentation.
