Susanne Vielmetter Projects (6006 Washington Blvd., Culver City, 90232) debuts new exhibitions from 6-8pm.

In West LA…

Fri-Jan29-Jaus-JoshuaHagler-WhatPlaysDeadLiesBreathingBeneathRocksorBetweenWinds-2015JAUS is very pleased to present “The Adopted,” the first Los Angeles solo exhibition by artist/painter Joshua Hagler. 

See image: Joshua Hagler. What Plays Dead Lies Breathing Beneath Rocks or Between Winds. 2015. Mixed media on canvas. 60 x 72 inches

Employing a virtuosic arsenal of marks, scrapes, brushstrokes and drips characteristic of his more recent paintings, Hagler responds to Western genre films with works that transition effortlessly between figuration and abstraction from passage to passage, and piece to piece.  Filmic references serve as departure points into meditations on the spiritual condition of the “Colonist,” a recurrent archetype within the artist’s oeuvre.  In addition, Hagler will present a new video piece entitled “Between Winds” that follows the same conceptual thread as his paintings.

On view: January 29 – March 6

What: Reception
Where: Jaus, 11851 La Grange Ave., LA 90025
When: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
