Fri-May13-Jaus-Martin-Durazo-llest-Mixedmedia-collageIn West LA…

JAUS is pleased to present “Tigeraugen (Tiger Eye)” featuring new works by Martin Durazo and Kottie Paloma. Working in multiple approaches and platforms, Durazo’s and Paloma’s work is charged with sexuality, ironic machinations, and unapologetic bravado.

Martin Durazo. Illest. Mixed media collage. 28 x 20 inches.

Working in painting, drawing, collage and sculpture, the artists present art that works individually and in harmony to explore a theme of a beast prowling in search of prey. The prey in this case is the beauty contained in lurid social subcultures. Durazo and Paloma share a physicality and evidence of the hand-made when making work, and rely heavily upon the concept of detritus as an aesthetic. The result is a discovery of the poetic in the forsaken, music in the noise of life, and eternity in a moment.
