Lois Lambert Gallery celebrates two exhibitions tonight. “Paper Giants LA,” features the art of Ky Anderson, Meg Lipke and Vicki Sher.
Although each of these artists maintain individual studios and have individual exhibitions they have joined together as a means of investigating and maintaining individual ideas within a shared space and format. The only requirement for each artist is that they work on 72″ x 60″ thick printmaking paper, which allows each artist to explore the nature of works on paper and the scale of the piece. The installation of Paper Giants is intentionally casual. The work is mostly unframed and pinned only from the top mimicking the informality of their studio and highlighting the connection the three artists have behind the scenes. The artists intention is to continue this collaboration into the future, evolving alongside each artist’s practice, and reflecting their individual developments over time.
Also opening is Erica Entrop’s “I, Voyeur,” a series of images captured while riding through public transportation in Los Angeles. Entrop is fascinated by the routines that make up daily life and the fragility
of those routines; long dull moment broken by someone speaking too loudly; private conversations overheard; quick gazes or direct stares are either returned or avoided.

Each interruption freezes the perpetual nature of routine, very much like a photograph brings to a sudden halt the moment captured. It is in the instances where patterns are disrupted that Erica can really see what is there, instead of what is always assumed to be there.
