Painter CT Nelson creates fantastic surreal worlds, partly abstracted and partly illustrative – with his more recent works leaning towards less definitive imagery. Channeling visions of science fiction, historical events, trippy hallucinations and vortex swirling motions of weather patterns – his paintings mesmerize and pull you in.
Featured Artist : Brin Levinson
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, artist Brin Levinson depicts muted haunted cityscapes and landscapes completely void of humanity. Other lifeforms and animals remain behind, sole survivors whose dominion is now the streets where people once walked.
Featured Artist: Alejandro Quincoces
Foggy, hazy and smoggy, the urban landscapes of Alejandro invite you to get dirty and enjoy the flawed city, before it’s gone for good. Roads and power lines are chicken scratched suggestions, muted colors and abstracted shapes recall places we might have been or will be going.
Book Sculpture: Guy Laramee
Guy Laramee creates beautiful mixed media sculptures, carved from books which act as dioramas. Layered topographic mountains, ancient textbook caves which portals of light shine through and scenic interludes of rugged terrain.
Featured Artist: Suzanne Moxhay
The mixed media work of Suzanne Moxhay is surreal, desolate and beautifully strange. She creates digitally altered photographs of empty landscapes using a mixture of her own photographs, painting, and found images. They transport us into wonderfully scenic dioramas with a sense of both past and future, a kind of David Lynchian natural history museum.
Exhibit Preview: Brian Mashburn, Contenders
Coming up in Los Angeles this weekend is a solo exhibit by Brian Mashburn, titled Contenders. His beautiful landscapes feature deserted cities, wildly majestic tangled trees, and usually one other lonely life form perusing a damaged misty environment.
