JoAnne Artman Gallery-Laguna Beach presents Fourth Wall – Room Series

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present the second installment of Brooke Shaden’s Fourth Wall – Room Series in which the artist continues her exploration of the space between illusion, perception and identity in the photographic medium. The term “fourth wall” is a reference to an exercise in the audience’s suspension of disbelief in the field of theatre and film. This happens when the invisible barrier between the reality of the action on screen and the present moment is broken by one of the characters directly addressing the audience. Shaden plays with this concept through the sense of anonymity when viewing the work, capitalizing on the self-reflective nature of the photographs. We are at once the voyeur as well as a participant in the unfolding action, activating the images through our gaze and giving life to the stories captured inside.  Artist Reception: Thursday, October 5th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm the exhibitions continues through November 15th, 2017.

Deconstructing Allusion: Featuring Greg Miller at the JoAnne Artman Gallery

Friday, September 1st, 2017

 

The passage of time as well as the impermanence and transitory nature of collective memory are both felt in the work of Greg Miller, who constructs as well as deconstructs our perception of social history through the ephemera of the golden age of the print media. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work in which Miller layers and reconstructs this imagery of mid-century American consciousness in clever, incongruous juxtapositions that are a life-like, contemporary approach to Pop. Known for his cheekily playful and vividly rendered visual collages, Miller draws on his urban Californian roots, engaging with the ambiguity in the American landscape. In the works presented Miller explores the connection between advertising, urban environment, and our social history.

Exhibition runs from September 7th – November 11th 2017

JoAnne Artman Gallery Laguna Beach presents JAMES VERBICKY | New Works

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

JoAnne Artman Gallery in Laguna Beach is pleased to present JAMES VERBICKY | New Works. Working within the collage medium, James Verbicky’s sculptural collages are visually rich in content and meaning. The work can be read as both sculpture as well as painting, an opulent, textural assemblage of paper strips that unfurl and cascade over the surface. Verbicky’s current body of “media paintings” explores the idea of the mental continuum or mind stream through paper collage. The pieces are sculptural collages that play on the on the idea of the found object or assemblage, with Verbicky positioning the strips to create new images that become evident at a distance, the jumble of words and colors taking on new form and shape. Language is an important part of Verbicky’s artistic practice as well, with the positioning of the letters, symbols, and phrases taking on new life as well, transforming the disparate elements into a continuous story. The works carry a spiritual resonance as through Verbicky’s choice in titles, uniting the works in the idea of awareness of both the constant fluctuations of our lives and the universal state of motion.

The exhibition closes September 3

JoAnne Artman Gallery NEW YORK presents Contemporary Consiousness

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

The JoAnne Artman Gallery in New York is pleased to share “Contemporary Consciousness” featuring artists James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell. The female body has long served as a muse in the arts, a lens through which the themes, issues and ongoing dialogue of the contemporary collective consciousness can be reflected. The work of James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell addresses this discourse through reflective interpretations of the feminine ideal through context, material and approach. In Wolanin’s work an idealized “snapshot” image is filtered through memories of the artist’s own personal history as in Mona Lisa of the Motorway Acrylic and Resin on Panel – featured above. Maxwell’s imagery on the other hand, while also addressing the legacy of print advertisement in the digital age, looks at its ephemerality through aggregation and accumulation. Biting into societal and personal constructs of femininity both artists commit to an encompassing approach, resulting in work that both entices and provokes.

JoAnne Artman Gallery Presents: “Kinetic Energy” Featuring Lee Waisler

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

KINETIC ENERGY

Graceful lines and bold color brought together through a nuanced approach to texture and material. A line that is both a relief as well as a spatial tool to curve shadow, compose color and separate texture. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Los Angeles based painter Lee Waisler (b. 1938). Through varied subject matter, the grouped works show the culmination of a long and articulated artistic practice, utilizing an established visual language and unifying approach.

Throughout his work, Red pictured above, Waisler utilizes dimensional compositional elements including wood, sand, carbon, and glass. Waisler’s intent and approach renders the works unyieldingly direct – they are evocative, poetic, and bold.
