In Hollywood…Steve Turner (6830 Santa Monica Blvd., LA 90038), hosts a reception from 7-9pm.


In Silverlake…

La Luz de Jesus Gallery celebrates artists Caitlin McCormack, Katherine Brannock, Gea* and Genie Mélisande. 

Caitlin McCormack’s exhibition “Lostwithall” is a place inhabited by the remains of familiar, yet foreign, beasts; a tenebrous forest permeated by notions of faded nostalgia and unaccountable loss, where memory’s authenticity is overtaken by the incessant buckling of time.

Cyclical patterns in nature maintain a captivating allure for the artist Katherine Brannock. Everything from water bodies aligning with the lunar cycle, to seasons predictably sculpting our environmental landscape, has captured her unwavering fascination and curiosity.

Fri-June3-2016-LaluzdeJesusgea* sometimes focuses on disturbing and explicit subject matter, while she can juxtapose sweetness and repulsion, sometimes wrapped in a dream like surrealism as she illustrates and explores the nether regions of our collective psyche.

Genie Mélisande’s exhibition, “Catalyst” is an exploration of evolution in both humanity and on an individual scale. This theme continues in the vein of the Tree of Life mythology that is fundamental to cultures worldwide, and maps the evolution of cosmic energy to solid matter and the ascension of living beings to a higher plane of consciousness.

On view: June 3rd – June 26th
