Mining Creativity From a Secondhand Store: The Clayton Brothers at Mark Moore Gallery

Annabel Osberg | Posted 08.19.2014 | Arts
Annabel Osberg

The exhibition's color scheme is gaudy and disjunctive like the colors of a thrift store's multiplicity of objects. The Claytons' palette is skillfully mismatched in a tongue-in-cheek nod to the untrained chromatic discord of paintings found in secondhand stores.

It was my food-loving friends at Sony Pictures in Culver City who first alerted me to the extraordinary little restaurant which had opened directly across from the studio and opposite Culver's City Hall.

What are the new norms, if any? Is it possible to have an ideal neighborhood in 2014 -- and if so, what are the drivers?

Recontextualizing Pieces of Art History and Scraps of Everyday Life

Annabel Osberg | Posted 07.16.2014 | Arts

Many painters feel burdened by the baggage of art history. Others feel a sense of responsibility to further its academic progress and expand its continuum. Still others choose to ignore it. For someone who is so engaged with art historical imagery, Klamen has a remarkably laissez-faire attitude towards it

Just TAP and Spin Through the Unlocked Expo Line Turnstile

Given our history, it's terrific to see a County Supervisor and others promoting, rather than deriding, transit ridership in LA. Still, I'd rather see expedited transit construction than read incredulous creative writing about how Metro is meeting artificially low ridership projections.

It's rare to find a progressive city in tears about the arrival of a new business with a focus on bringing physical fitness to the community.

Inglewood Open Studios

When most people think about Inglewood, California, they usually don't think about the arts. Unfortunately, it was stigmatized in the 90s by Black gangster rap and hood films which gave it a tainted image, similar to Compton and South Central.

I, for one, am a meat eater and am always skeptical about vegan restaurants, but with a menu as varied as it is satisfying, Sage is a welcome addition to the Culver City foodie landscape and a place I look forward to revisiting.

Todd Williamson Brings "Unpolarized Light" to George Billis Gallery

Nicholas Marlin | Posted 07.15.2013 | Arts
Nicholas Marlin

Unpolarized light emitted by the sun, by a lamp, or by a candle flame creates light waves that vibrate in more than one plane in a variety of directions. It is a fitting name for Todd Williamson's current show.

The Totemic Art of Yis Goodwin

Aja Beech

Yis Goodwin creates totemic art, which is the only way to put it. Some call it whimsical, but I would not call a roaring lion head forcefully emerging from the open mouth of a cartoonish crowned animal head whimsical.
