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

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.

Susan Nelly curates Blooming Emotions at Rafael Gallery

Beatriz Elorza’s “Blooming Emotions” at the Rafael Gallery, is curated by Susan Nelly, and features two bodies of work by the Spanish artist. The abstract paintings are infused with the atmosphere and spirit of the two cities, New York and London, where the artist has lived and worked, and reflect, in vivid color and motion, her experience of their energies.

Elorza’s larger than life works present a wonderful conundrum, walking a tightrope between abstract and representational art, with the latter serving as a point of entry, inviting us to a deeper exploration of the emotional content. These compositions reference naturalist illustration in their focus on the subject and lack of fear of negative space, but the artist’s mark is pure New York School. Her works especially bring to mind the brightness and stripped-down clarity of the late paintings of Willem de Kooning. It is a wholly new synthesis of aesthetics that evokes an atmosphere of the wonder, infused with a sense of “deja vu.”

The exhibition is  is on view throughout the month of October. Opening reception with the artist October 3rd, 6pm – 8pm.
