See Line Gallery presents “Wild Thing” a group exhibition introducing artists that expose
the provocative allure of being wild. The diverse works showcase elements of pushing boundaries,
embracing the free spirit and venturing into the unknown. The exhibition includes sculpture, painting
and works on paper.
Jonathan Apgar works without any predetermined end. When there is something that happens within a painting that makes him feel uncomfortable, if it feels risky to present to someone or he is exhilarated by a feeling of getting away with something, he knows he is venturing in the right direction.
Jordan Eagles has been using preserved animal blood, procured from slaughterhouses, in his signature, multidimensional works for over a decade. Through his experimental, self-invented process, the artist applies blood to layers of clear plexiglass and then permanently preserves the organic material with layers of resin, allowing the high-gloss surfaces to suspend the fluid forms.
Portland based Anna Fidlerpresents works from her series Vampires and Wolf Men which seeks to create a myth surrounding characters of the past. Her images are sourced in part from photographs found at the Oregon Historical Society, and include portraits from families both prominent and unknown. Fidler’s decisions to use specific individuals were based purely on facial expressions and features that could be interpreted as mysterious, haunting or strange.
Amber Ibarreche is using appropriated imagery moving objects from one place to the next in an unrestrained manner.
Ashley Macomer’s new series of paintings uses images of women from hard core pornography as its source material. Using collage and shifts in scale, these highly sexualized representations of women interact with images taken from nature that become the subject for the paintings. She sees the paintings as an experimentation within the power dynamic inherent in these images and the possibility of reabsorbing that power into a new concept of the feminine.
Angeline Rivas’ new works are celestial road signs and artifacts from a timeless place. They address a new reality where advanced technology is being used for degenerate human needs. Incorporating human hair, teeth, and acrylic nails as beads into her pieces.
Adam Tullie has created a new series of drawings built from the repetitious study of a single, subtly-evolving motif resembling the human eye. Exploring the notion of the viewer viewing the artwork, with the artwork viewing the viewer, Tullie work engages the audience with an optical see/saw effect.
Los Angeles based artist Eric Yahnker conflates artifice and authenticity to construct a poetic and perverse exposition of the American condition. Outwardly refuting moral and political decency in favor of comic rationality, Yahnker employs absurdity to assault absolutism.

Amir H. Fallah
5790projects is thrilled to announce its third quarterly pop-up group exhibition, Line Dancing, featuring five unrepresented LA-based artists working in the medium of painting, sculpture, and drawing.
Manipulating the formal attributes of linework, each artist in the exhibition explores the malleability of art's most basic foundation – giving whimsical, geometric, figurative or outlandish life to a common singular motif. From the contours of a loved one's face, to the territorial borders drawn upon a map, lines shape our perception of a tangible and conceptual world. They are the genesis of form and composition, be it the familiar bars on a sheet of music or the postulatory blueprints of a Sol LeWitt.
5790projects focuses on providing an exhibition platform for emerging artists based in Los Angeles. Through a combination of selected artist submissions and invitations, the entity curates local pop-up exhibitions throughout Southern California. The artists included in Line Dancing encompass a diverse miscellany of practice and exhibition history. Amir Fallah received his MFA from UCLA, and has since exhibited in Dubai, New York City, San Francisco, and Miami, among other cities. Christine Frerichs (CA) received her MFA from UC Riverside, and has been featured in a number of galleries in addition to the Torrance Art Museum and Riverside Art Museum. Kyla Hansen (CA) will receive her MFA from Claremont Graduate School this year, and was the 2009 recipient of the "Best in Show" award at the Las Vegas Art Museum's (NV) "Las Vegas Art Round Up" show. Marissa Textor (CA) graduated from UCLA, and has shown in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Toronto. Adam Tullie (MA) has exhibited internationally, including shows in Auckland, Mexico City, Milan, New York, and Los Angeles, and will be concurrently featured in "Portrait of a Generation" at The Hole (NY). All of the artists live and work in Los Angeles.

"Over thirty new ways to make a face"
On Thursday, April 14 2011, Royal/T—Culver City’s playful, visually stunning 10,000-square-foot space known for its changing program of rotating curatorial art exhibits from top artists and gallerists around the world—debuts “FACEMAKER,” a new exhibition curated by Kathy Grayson of New York City’s The Hole that will be displayed through June 2011. Featured in the show are works from contemporary young artists including the title piece by Ben Jones, in addition to Barry McGee, Kenny Scharf, Joe Grillo, assume vivid astro focus, Tomoo Gokita, Eric Yahnker, Jane Moseley, Olaf Breuning, KAWS, Ted Mineo, David Shrigley, Shepard Fairey, Eddie Martinez, Taylor McKimens, Francine, Speigel, Avery Newman, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Robert Lazzarini, Aurel Schmidt, Kembra Pfahler, Rivas & Tullie, Aaron Johnson, Brian Belott, Matt Leines, SWOON, Allison Schulnik, Clare Rojas, Jules de Balincourt, Michael Williams, Takeshi Murata, Anders Oinonen, Justin Samson, Misaki Kawai, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Dennis Tyfus, Katherine Bernhardt, Todd James, Matt Greene, Stefan Bondell, Spencer Sweeney, Nate Lowman, Mat Brinkman, Jakub Julian Ziolkowski, Billy Grant, Adam Tullie and FriendsWithYou. The show will explore interpretations of the most universal element of human perception: the face.
Each artist in this show finds a new way to imagine a face, whether in painting, drawing, sculpture, or video. “At Royal/T, we want to think of a different way to share the rising talents of undiscovered underground artists,” says Owner Susan Hancock. “Our visitors look to us to share current art culture with them, and we feel it’s important to spotlight the cutting-edge work that Kathy Grayson is doing at The Hole in New York City and the work that these young artists are putting out.”
The forthcoming art installation at Royal/T will highlight the title piece, “FACEMAKER” by Ben Jones, playing on a large flat screen TV. A Los Angeles resident, Jones combines the vocabulary of video games and digital art to create playful works that blur the lines between media, and is currently working on his first television show that debuted on Cartoon Network this April 4th. The “FACEMAKER” exhibit will coincide with MoCA director Jeffrey Deitch’s “Art in the Streets”—the first major art museum survey of the history of street art and graffiti in America from the 1970s to the present—at the Geffen Contemporary in April 2011, and many of the artists from “Art in the Streets” will also have works at Royal/T.
“The ‘FACEMAKER’ exhibit is particularly exciting and relevant because as people, we’re instinctively wired to see faces in everything,” adds Grayson. “Today’s young artists are approaching this simple concept in a way that challenges our assumptions and makes us consider the face in new ways.”
About Curator Kathy Grayson:
The former director of Deitch Projects in New York City, Kathy Grayson opened The Hole with fellow former Deitch Projects director Meghan Coleman, in June 2010 to “fill the hole” left by Deitch’s move to Los Angeles’ MoCA. Grayson brought a roster of contemporary artists to Deitch Projects, and The Hole’s opening exhibition, “Not Quite Open for Business” displayed works in various phases of completion with pieces by over 20 artists from the community. A curator, painter, and writer, Grayson is also the Arts Editor at i-D magazine. She can be found blogging about art and graffiti at http://artfrombehind.net.
Located in Culver City, Royal/T is a playful blending of café, concept shop, and art exhibition space. The 10,000-square-foot space reflects the interior realm of fantasy that strongly influences the artists included in Owner Susan Hancock’s art collection. The art space showcases curated exhibitions with a focus on Japanese contemporary art. “FACEMAKER” will be on display at Royal/T from Friday, April 1, 2011, through Thursday, June 30, 2011. The exhibit is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, with extended hours on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.
STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT
Opening Tuesday, March 8th at 7:00 PM
Until May 27, 2011
Galleria Patricia Armocida is proud to present "Strangers In The Night", a collective exhibit with Devendra Banhart, Keegan McHargue and Adam Tullie, opening on Tuesday, March 8th at 7:00 PM.
On view there will be approximately fifty works in watercolor, ink, and pencil.
Devendra Banhart’s works are an expressive component inseparable from his music: “I sing what I can’t draw and draw what I can’t sing”. His drawings are much like his music, immediate, simple, and spontaneous, characterized by a sense of authenticity, of private emotions and notions; these are his distinctive traits and perhaps the reason why his works emanate such an intense sense of vitalism.
His works convey a sort of free speech, a flow of consciousness without mediation that fuels an oneiric, intimate, and visionary essence where elementary forms reproduce in the flow of time and permeate the entire work with symbolism.
Delicate lines and spirals unite in three-dimensional forms, which at times congeal into anthropomorphic and zoomorphic details: hands, eyes, embryonic birds, and holy mountains conveying an archaic mysticism that floats on the paper.
Circles, triangles, and thick dotted lines depict phytomorphic figures and beings that come and go continuously, melding with words, absorbing the taste of magical formulas. The enigmatic nature of Banhart’s hypnotic images is the starting and finishing point for his every creation.
Keegan McHargue’s imagery oscillates between mysterious and bizarre: his works communicate an indefinite sense of narrative. For years he has been developing his symbolic lexicon in which certain recurrent images and motifs represent a true and tried visual alphabet that expands and evolves year after year. His subject matter is often everyday, mundane things; in fact, McHargue states: "I like to think that banality is a place where the spiritual likes to hide out".
Nevertheless, his pool of inspiration is vast: from branding to history. The work in this exhibit, for example, takes inspiration from ancient Roman graffiti. He sketches and fuses them with brightly colored abstractions, which are reminiscent of the 80s and Transavant-garde. His works are not tied to the physical world in which we live or to a specific lapse of time, instead they seem to come from a strikingly flat universe where background and foreground are irrelevant.
Adam Tullie’s work plays upon the relationship between the concrete, visual material we unconsciously process during our waking moments, and the breaking down of this fundamental material into its simplest forms. Taking cues from ‘real-time’ visual displacement, and obscured prior recollection, Tullie intersects the fleeting moment when obvious characteristics are lost and new impressions are made. In this sense, he seeks to decode the cultural constructs of the human experience. Inspiration ranging from religious fanatics that claim to have found the face of Christ in a breakfast pancake, to the deconstructed simplicity of African masks, or the wood-grain of a table, Tullie creates highly rendered shapes and stylized human form using needle-thin line-work to build up a layered surface of textural variation. Incorporating a limited palette with a hands-on application of bleach, India ink, and sand; the works become process-heavy, mixed-media fabrications that blend a primitive sensibility with contemporary abstraction.
Devendra Banhart (b. 1981, Houston, lives and works in Los Angeles), musician, artist, and curator. Although he studied briefly at the San Francisco Art Institute, he is mainly self-taught. He has shown his works worldwide, in galleries like New Image Arts in Los Angeles, Andrew Roth in New York, Galleria Mazzoli in Modena, Luggage Store in San Francisco, and at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2009 with "Abstract Rhythms: Paul Klee and Devendra Banhart". In 2010, he had an exhibit at Los Angeles’ MOCA, performing together with Beck and Caetano Veloso for the occasion: "The Artist's Museum".
Keegan McHargue (b. 1982, Portland, lives and works in New York) is self-taught, he studied literature in college but has been drawing and painting for many years. His works have been shown around the world: Jack Hanley Gallery in San Francisco and Los Angeles, Deitch Projects in New York, Hiromi Yoshii Gallery in Tokyo, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, and his work is currently held in the collections of the Greek art collector, Dakis Joannou, and the MOMA. Some noteworthy exhibits: “Man Burning” at W/____ in New York, “In Memory of Painting: Keegan McHargue,” at Layr Wuestenhagen Contemporary in Vienna, “Well Charge” at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, “The Yellow Spectrum” at Jack Hanley Gallery in San Francisco, and “Mauve Deep” at Hiromi Yoshii Gallery in Tokyo.
As an interdisciplinary artist, Adam Tullie (b. 1982 Boston, lives and works in Los Angeles) has scored several short films with guitar-driven compositions, and owns and operates Cavern Collection with creative partner, Angeline Rivas, a high-end fashion line based in Los Angeles that has been covered in publications including Purple Fashion, Flaunt, The Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times. Tullie’s visual art has been covered in Beautiful Decay, Art Observed, Art Lovers New York, Nudity In Groups, Them Thangs Magazine, & Art Slant. Recent exhibitions include ‘Art Machine’ & ‘Postermat’, both curated by gallery owner, Kathy Grayson at The Hole NYC. ‘A Ways A Way’ at Half Gallery NYC, curated by Devendra Banhart, ‘Art/Music/Alchemy’ curated by Whitney Bedford at Starkwhite in Auckland, New Zealand, and ‘La Migra’ at Vice Gallery in Mexico City.
