Look here, upon this picture: Alice Channer, Mari Eastman, Marc Hundley, Amanda Ross-Ho — May 12 - June 30, 2012
'Look here, upon this picture' brings together the work of four artists who address the elemental aspects of art making. Never neutral, never easily definable, the terms that define art objects point to what is represented, who is doing the representing and how they are doing it. This exhibition regards the artist as receiver and transmitter of information, and addresses human touch, traditionally considered an expressive record, as a shifting indicator. The conversation between the works included points to the specificities of mark making while at the same time pushing viewers to ask questions about the artist's presence and absence, the notions of sameness and difference, and representation itself as an index, an icon, and, perhaps, a sign imbued with memory.

Brian Bress: Under Performing — January 7 - February 25, 2012
The title of Brian Bress’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, Under Performing, suggests multiple interpretations. By it, does Bress mean to imply that he is not up to the task he has set for himself? That failure is an unavoidable part of artistic expression? Or is he simply describing a working method, one in which everything invariably occurs under something else, be it a set of assumptions, the mask of a performer, his or her costume, or just the quiet eye of the video camera that runs silently in Bress’s studio.

Nathan Mabry: Armature — January 8 - February 12, 2011
Nathan Mabry’s work transforms the known into the new and the unexpected. In doing so Mabry asserts artistic agency while at the same time engaging with both art history and normative objects as readymades. A Duchampian trajectory is balanced by an art-making urge that springs from other early Modernists such as Brancusi, Lipchitz and Picasso, whose visual avarice led them to a range of “exotic” cultural material in an effort to create their own visual language. While the borrowings of the Early Modernists from Native American, Pre-Columbian and African art are quite direct, our thinking about the complexity of their interactions with their source material usually is not. Working with both threads in mind is interesting to Mabry, who is ultimately focused on the integrity of his own art objects. Mabry's fascination with how objects function in the public mind and his desire to address the totality of culture, both high and low, fuels an urge to make relevant, holistic objects that engage with the inherent complexities of the world in which we live. Whether we experience Mabry's pieces through art history, or other modes of consumption, is a topic that allows for humor and surprise, complexity and contemplation. Read more »

Amanda Ross-Ho: Nothin Fuckin Matters — February 17 - March 24, 2007
“WE CAN’T GET ENOUGH, BECAUSE THERE'S TOO MUCH,�? states Amanda Ross-Ho. Using images pulled from a wide range of cultural material—drug-seizure websites and self-help books, newspaper clippings and holiday craft manuals—Amanda Ross-Ho locates sites within culture’s representational flow, carving out designated points of focus. Recognizing that contemporary culture moves not as a linear narrative, but rather as a string of analogies, Ross-Ho proposes intersections between seemingly unrelated images and objects. Read more »

Ruby Osorio: Extreme Unction — September 16 - October 28, 2006
Ruby Osorio’s works on paper address identity as an unresolved narrative in which allegory, myth, and fantasy play central roles. Osorio’s distinctly feminine imagery explores one's ability/desire to transcend physical and psychological limitations; her technique of dense patterning, stitching and repetition invokes ritual as a formal, tactile and symbolic presence. Read more »

Zoo Art Fair / London — October 12-15, 2006
New work by Holly Coulis, Nathan Mabry, Ruby Osorio, Amanda Ross-Ho and Augusta Wood.

Augusta Wood: leaning on the margin — June 24 - July 30, 2006
Augusta Wood’s 'leaning on the margin' is an exhibition of colorfully directed, suggestively performative photographs taken by the artist in a variety of locations, both public and private. Upending our sense of the photograph as a neutral document, Wood’s square-formatted works include passages of handwritten text. In a work like 'unfolding in pieces,' (2006), the text is entwined with the image; here, written in the sand of a vast secluded beach like a castaway’s desperate SOS. In 'i used to live outside new memory,' (2006), the writing is penned by a finger smearing leftover oil paint on the glass palette in an artist’s studio surrounded by ephemera and unfinished paintings. Read more »

El Dorado: Holly Coulis, Alison Fox, Angelina Gualdoni, Portia Hein — May 13 - June 17, 2006
The title of the main gallery exhibition, El Dorado, suggests that art-making is a journey, if not a quest, to the limits of the imaginable. The history of painting, in particular, has been defined by the idea of painting as an artistic epic and that painterly practice is an arena in which individuals prove themselves and leave their mark. Read more »

Amanda Ross-Ho: Don't Front (You Know I Got Cha Open) — May 13 - June 17, 2006
Amanda Ross-Ho's interest in individual experience is interpreted through the lens of contemporary culture’s mass-consumer, product-driven flow. Her exhibition in the rear gallery locates sites of artistic action and personal significance, proposing relationships between a range disparate objects and experiences. Read more »

Kim McCarty — April 1 - May 6, 2006
Kim McCarty’s watercolors depict young people, girls and boys, at fragile moments. Uncertain about life and what it holds, McCarty’s subjects are delicate, yet enigmatic individuals, full of promise and mystery, captured at a point in their lives in which the future stretches out before them and any outcome is possible. Writing in the catalogue for the Hammer Museum’s important 2003 exhibition, International Paper, curator Claudine Isé comments that McCarty’s adolescent and preadolescent children “hover between presence and absence, innocence and wisdom. Read more »

MACO Art Fair / Mexico City — April 26-30, 2006
New work by Nathan Mabry, Ruby Osorio Amanda Ross-Ho and Augusta Wood.

Nathan Mabry — February 18 - March 25, 2006
Nathan Mabry’s sculpture throws into relief the assumed divide between “ethnographic' sculptural works and those of such American Minimalists as John McCracken, Sol LeWitt and Carl Andre. Juxtaposing formal, material and conceptual elements, Mabry encourages the viewer to explore a range of topics including the place of the artist in society, the role of technology and the relationship of a civilization to its past, present and the always-changing vicissitudes of popular culture. Read more »

LA Art / New York — March 10-12, 2006
New work by Holly Coulis, Nathan Mabry, Max Maslansky, Kim McCarty, Ruby Osorio and Augusta Wood.

Holly Coulis — January 7 - February 11, 2006
Holly Coulis’ new paintings depict passing moments snatched from the flow of time and held up for exploration and appreciation. Slowed down, these moments are like scenes from Noh drama or a film by Akira Kurosawa—elevated, aestheticized and made to suggest quiet elegance and grace, subtle meaning and fleeting beauty. In addition to traditional Japanese aesthetics, Coulis draws heavily on the images of Western art history and the composition and techniques of American painters like Milton Avery and Fairfield Porter. Read more »

Max Maslansky — January 7 - February 11, 2006
Coulis’ interest in the importance of unheralded moments finds a parallel in the work of Max Maslansky, several of whose new paintings depict fallen or failed heroic male archetypes, such as cowboys and sportsmen, painters and composers, kings and superheroes. Max Maslansky uses an unusual technique in which the absorbent ground he applies to his work alternately absorbs and repels the pigments from his brush, creating an uneven surface of drips and brushstrokes that adds to the sense of his depiction of tentative scenes. Read more »

Nathan Mabry — November 4 - December 11, 2005
A new work by Los Angeles artist Nathan Mabry, Conversation Piece (Jackin’, Stackin’ and Crackin’), continues the connection between traditional ritual experience and contemporary culture and art. Read more »

Jeremy Shaw: DMT — November 4 - December 11, 2005
An 8-channel work DMT (2004) presents Shaw and 7 others taking the drug derived from the Ayahuasca vine. In recounting their short but intense experience on DMT—the text of which Shaw has overlaid on the original film—the artist and his fellow imbibers fall back on images and metaphors provided by mass-media, consumer driven youth culture. DMT raises questions about youth culture, its ability to address ‘real’ experience and the role of the artist—as shaman?—within that culture. Read more »
