My Highlights from Art Los Angeles Contemporary 2014
I picked some artists whose work I’m familiar with and some that I don’t know. Looking at art involves looking deeply and exploring what you think you are familiar with, and also going beyond your comfort zone and discovering what you don’t know.
I want to see this in person! I love painting.
I love the materials that went into making this wonderful abstract “painting.” I want to know more about Kendell Carter.
Everything Matt Keegan does is on my wish list. He work is smart, multi-disciplinary, visually compelling—he makes me think!
I have always lived in cities, so concrete and vertical stacks are a comfortable part of my visual vocabulary. This work is abstract and yet specific. It is tactile but not really inviting. It reflects how we live—at least to me.
Abstract painting… lush, intense, immersive. I love it!
Intriguing. Beautiful ready mades and found materials together in one piece.
Sam Durant is unabashedly political. He is brilliant; his work is powerful and compelling. I can’t stop thinking about it.
Zarouhie Abdalian, Every Instance (A), 2014, at Altman Siegel
A new artist for me. The convergence of music and the visual is exciting to explore, especially as contemporary artists are blurring the boundaries between the various media and investigating all the possibilities that result.
Google Glass … I just finished reading The Circle by Dave Eggers. The idea of having one’s life photographed without your knowledge and the fact of the NSA listening in on your calls … the implications are frightening.
