It’s slim pickin’s for Los Angeles art parties this weekend….but La Luz de Jesus Gallery has come through with four new exhibitions….

In Sliverlake….

La Luz De Jesus kicks off the 4th of July weekend with Fri-July3-LaLuz-Coronel Pumpkin1four new exhibitions.

CLICK MORT: Delirium Tremens -Click Mort’s work centers on indiscreet modifications to existing porcelain figurines. Each piece is a unique consolidation of two or more previously unrelated figures, with extensive cutting, sculpting, sanding, and painting being required to unify them into a new, seamless whole. The result is kitsch resurrected in a still vaguely familiar but somewhat less cozy form.

EDWARD ROBIN CORONEL: Fuzzy/Furry – Edward Robin Coronel is best known for his anthropomorphic characters that are whimsical, awkward, and melancholic. These characters explore Coronel’s curious world, dreams, and fuzzy memories with hope and curiosity.

CHRISTOPHER BALES: Archetypal Memory – Here is some info from the artist. “Garage sales, flea markets, antique stores, junk yards: these are places you might find me rummaging over display tables or inside water stained boxes looking for any object that asks me politely to take it home. I place my excavations on one of dozens of dusty shelves where they may sit for years waiting to be put to use.”

Fri-July3-LaLuz-AaronRiverAARON RIVERA: Leisure – There is nothing quite like the energy of a July 4th weekend spent with friends who know how to have fun.

Aaron Rivera’s works are a celebration of friendship in the context of the riotous color and excitement of a long, hot summer. Indulging in a love for bright colors, bold shapes, and a variety of patterns, these works seek to create a sense of nostalgia for a time when summer held endless possibilities.
