Rolón and Perez have been friends and colleagues for many years, reflecting a kindred spirit whose aesthetic and socio-political dimensions gives rise to this new project of pure collaboration.

Both artists work in painting and sculpture, as each with their diverse and unique style conveys influences and interests stemming from the Puerto Rican heritage they share, and the culture of immigration, aspiration, identity and the idea of the American Dream as it pertains to languages of pop culture and art history.

David Kordansky Gallery presents two solo exhibigions…”Il Signor Beneventano” and “Black Bars.”

“Il Signor Beneventano” is an exhibition of new work by Pietro Roccasalva. Pietro Roccasalva makes paintings, sculptures, films, and other works that constitute a single, ever-expanding artistic vision.

See iSat-Nov5-2016-davidkordansky-PietroRoccasalvamage: by Pietro Roccasalva, Carnival Night, 2016, (detail) painted wood, steel, ceramic, feathers, 137 3/4 x 194 7/8 x 194 7/8 inches (350 x 495 x 495 cm)

The entirety of his practice is like an ongoing installation that takes place in different locations across many moments in time; each piece refers both to past works as well as a potential infinity of future ones. This multiplicity informs his Renaissance-like ability to employ a dizzying array of materials and modes. Yet despite the masterful technique that characterizes his approach, the interconnectivity and mystery he conjures are decidedly futuristic, reflective of a world in which more and more seems to be known but less and less is certain.

“Black Bars,” an exhibition of new work by Kathryn Andrews will also be celebrated tonight. Kathryn Andrews examines the latent power dynamics in acts of desire and consumption, creating works that implicate the viewer as both an agent and an object of such desire.

In Gallery 1, enjoy “CHRIS ENGMAN: Prospect and Refuge,” the artist’s second solo exhibition with the Gallery.

See image: Chris Engman, Refuge, 2016, digital pigment print, 38 x 48 inches, edition of 6

According to Jay Appleton’s theory of prospect and refuge, two of our most basic and deep-rooted needs are for opportunity and shelter. We are attracted to those landscapes or environments that would seem to afford both, and we are wary of those that would seem to withhold either. This plays a role, if an unconscious one, in our experience of the environment and in our aesthetics.

In Boyle Heights…

Corey Helford Gallery proudly presents “Rainbeau Samsara,” the newest body of work from Los Angeles-based figurative painter Natalia Fabia and her first solo show in four years.

See image: by Natalia Fabia, “Stardust Conception” oil on canvas, 48″ x 60″Sat-Nov5-2016-ChG-NataliaFabia

Fabia has been painting the female form in environments for years. After the birth of her daughter, Peribeau, and the sudden loss of her brother, her painting exploration has progressed. The artist was drawn to the absolute truth of what remains of the physical body after one transitions; a tangible ash of our carbon frame, our stardust. It is this stardust that links us to the planets and cosmos, to the sand and dirt of the earth, and to each other. While so much of our existence and human experience is a mystery, Fabia found comfort through meditation, and in the knowingness she felt holding and even painting with human stardust, a tangible truth.

In Gallery 2, celebrate two artists–Alessandra Maria and Lauren Marx–with an outstanding new body of work. Both artists utilize powerful and traditional iconography to tell a story. Whether in Maria’s iconic, Renaissance-inspired works, or in the natural elements of Marx’s illustrations, they are reworking icons in a manner that is entirely their own.

The gallery will also be debuting a new collection of works from Los Angeles artist Elizabeth McGrathon. The artist will transform Gallery 3 into her own wonderland of dark whimsy with her delightfully odd creatures variously adorned with jeweled eyes, crystal blood drops and gold trim. Some have miniature diorama windows in which you will find tiny dreamlands filled with cupcakes, the Grim Reaper, unicorns and more. The “star” of the show is a three-headed deer covered in over fifty thousand Swarovski Crystals.
