Luis Gispert, Aqua Regia, at OHWOW Gallery, Los Angeles, CA

May 29 – Jun 27, 2015

Opening reception
Friday, May 29
7-9pm

OHWOW Gallery
937 N. La Cienega Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90069

OHWOW Gallery is pleased to announce Aqua Regia, Luis Gispert’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, presenting a series of two-dimensional works, each comprised of quasi-asphalt slabs embedded with varied strands of gold chain. Concepts surrounding American culture and the fetishization of value have inspired the artist’s work over the years, and those interests continue to serve as the basis from which all his ideas evolve. Regardless of the visual vehicle used to interpret his acumen, Gispert’s sensibility is always palpable.

The work presented in Aqua Regia translates through visual and tactile methods. Densely black planks appear interrupted by channels of delicately metallic line in a nonobjective abstract manner. Arriving at a closer proximity, these works of expressionistic gesture disclose to the viewer: they confess not to be minimalist paintings, as Gispert’s panels reveal a particular style of line. Each piece serves as a sample of analysis, identifying marks associated directly to this artist’s hand.

Angel Delgado: Uncomfortable Landscapes, at B&B Art Exchange, Santa Monica, CA

Bergamot Station Arts Center

“In his new series of paintings titled “Uncomfortable Landscapes” cuban artist Angel Delgado explores a theme constantly present throughout his work: the human condition and its relationship to the notions of freedom and identity. In this occasion, Delgado presents a series of paintings that far from the traditional idea of landscape, they constitute a view, indeed, but of rather a social panorama of what one would call modern societies. By juxtaposing everyday objects, aerial views of prisons and human silhouettes, the artist creates a composition that evokes a state of alienation. The individual seems utterly reduced to a series of social codes, to which he is, nevertheless, inextricably bonded.” (Patricia Ortega Miranda)

September 20 – October 4, 2014

Opening Reception:

Saturday, September 20,from 7-10PM

 

CHG CIRCA
8530-A Washington Boulevard
Culver City, CA 90232

Culver City (September 15, 2014): On Saturday, September 20, CHG Circa presents “Giants Among Us” a group show examining the role of the Giant in contemporary times. Modern day Giants prove to be more psychologi- cal than tangible in most cases, except perhaps when disguised as championship basketball centers or infamous wrestlers. Yet, since the very beginning of story-telling, giants have recurred as personalities to fear and respect, making mere humans feel small in their shadow, or humongous when the monster is overcome in battle. You’ll see today’s Giant depicted as fantasy, as emotion, even as edible.
