Visual Art Is Vibrant at Life Is Beautiful Festival 2014

JK Russ | Posted 11.12.2014 | Arts

"Love is Power. Power is Life. Life is Beautiful." The words are scrawled in red, encircling a cut out of a large, purple cactus flower. Pasted to the wall, the flower is surrounded by hundreds of other natural desert elements, with hand-written messages.

Windshield Decal Semiotics and Doctrinaire Cultism in the Artwork of Brendan Donnelly

Annabel Osberg | Posted 11.19.2014 | Arts
Annabel Osberg

The title of Brendan Donnelly's first exhibition at Paul Loya Gallery, "How To Be A Magician In Your Spare Time," is something of a misnomer--the show has little to do with magic. However, the emptiness of the titular promise is itself an ironic trick in keeping with the artist's skepticism of magisterial charlatanry.

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

Annabel Osberg | Posted 10.19.2014 | 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.

Multi-layered, complex, dreamlike and humanistic, The Refusal of Time is a manifestation, a work of art that seeks to explore ambiguity, to remain unfinished and to avoid the black hole at the end of time.

With any new festival, there is always a question mark as to whether the event will be well run and well patronized, but the consensus seems to be that Life is Beautiful was successful on both counts.
