In Venice…

High and Dry is the first of a series of art exhibitions at Fab-gallery in Santa Monica curated by Delia Cabral, after she has been based on the east side of LA for 5 years. Artists include: Osceola Refetoff, Sabine Gebser, and Tori White.

High and Dry is a summer Sat-Aug13-2016-FabStudioexhibition that explores horizons in the visual arts, showcasing the works of two photographers, Osceola Refetoff and Sabine Gebser, and one painter, Tori White. Exploring the horizon in unexpected ways, either from up high, or wide open, to dry, saturated and stunning. Osceola features his Arm chair in the sky series that shows our familiar world from an unfamiliar vantage. Sabine creates rich images with kaleidoscopic horizons, presenting her pieces in an unusual round format. Tori captures a wide open feel in her small format paintings.  All in all, these three artist bring a fresh perspective to Perspective.” – Delia Cabral, Santa Monica

Also in Venice…

C.A.V.E. Gallery presents A-Minor featuring the art of Joe Iurato & Rubin415.
Sat-Sept3-2016-CAVEFor this new exhibition “A MINOR” – Brooklyn based artists Rubin415 and Joe Iurato celebrate melancholic tones in music through their artwork. In an era where happiness is considered inherently good and sadness inherently bad, the notion of melancholia is perceived negatively rather than seen as a mellow, pensive mood that can inspire reflective thought.

Project Gallery presents “Clapotis,” a solo exhibition by Jeremiah Kille. Ominous clouds and disenfranchised circus elephants along deserted beaches has been a recurring theme in Jeremiah Kille’s work.

This nSat-sept3-2016-ProjectGalleryew body of work by Kille, featuring more than 10 new paintings, takes some of his past themes and utilizes them in a new light, allowing his vulnerable elephants to coexist in a more abstracted space where scale and proportion become blurred. These paintings are a mash up of images and script with a painterly yet contemporary twist.

The clapotis is an overlapping wave pattern caused by a wave train hitting a fixed vertical object sending a reflected wave in the opposite direction resulting in a multi directional surface. This idea or notion of overlapping and layering in relationship to connectivity of all things is the source of inspiration for this body of work.  Through a multitude of stylistic approaches employed, Kille creates a broad landscape of adversity and hope.

Kille uses images and decomposed script that is related to his personal experience of time and place creating a balanced tension within the work. “Clapotis” is partially an installation through geometric elements in the paintings that continue their trajectory onto the gallery wall allowing the work to be multifaceted in nature and interactive to its viewer.

Sat-Sept3-2016-Coagula-RavenServellonCoagula Curatorial presents “Velvet Sunflower,” featuring new works by Raven Servellon in her second solo show with the gallery.

A self-taught artist based in Los Angeles, Raven Servellon creates “optrickal delusions” using marker and ink on paper, layering intricate & playful imagery which interweave a multitude of references, both political and personal.

Raven Servellon considers her labor intensive drawings as the next generation of Op Art.

They certainly are optical orgies of color, form, and content. Her work is an escapist psychadelic trip into a feminine fantasy world of independent superstar girls, and their rock star pets.
