Siobhan McClure – In the Time of Water – Los Angeles, California

The Guardians, 2012 - Oil on canvas/panel - 36 x 36 inches

The Guardians, 2012 – Oil on canvas/panel – 36 x 36 inches


From September 13 to October 18, 2014 – 101/EXHIBIT 8920 Melrose Ave.

In the Time of Water continues Siobhan McClure’s epic narrative about bands of children that have been left to negotiate the post-apocalyptic urban wasteland “Mirror City.” Inspired by the stillness of Vermeer and the silhouetted German Romantic landscapes of Caspar David Friedrich, McClure has used heightened one-point perspective and delicately rendered figures to engage the viewer with the strangeness of destruction and the possibility inherent within reorder. In addition to fueling such an elaborately cohesive body of work, the conflicts faced by these hierarchical tribes of children provide a fantasy space for the artist to negotiate the existent challenges of today’s tumultuous urban centers. The show includes fifteen watercolor and gouache works on paper, and six medium to large-scale oil paintings on canvas that resume the story of her 2010 exhibition, The Tale of Pearl, at Richard Heller Gallery.

E
ach work from In the Time of Water functions as a fragmented view of McClure’s larger narrative which is ultimately connected by her own elaborate legend of reoccurring motifs. Though complex, the legend is meant as more of an aid than as a pre-requisite to viewing the works; a window into McClure’s artistic process. As Bill Callahan sings in From the Rivers to the Ocean, “Have faith in wordless knowledge. Well, I could tell you about the river or we could just get in.”
Born in 1955 in Margate, England, Siobhan McClure has lived and worked in the Los Angeles area for over 20 years. Her previous solo exhibitions include The Tale of Pearl at Richard Heller Gallery (2010), The Garden at Lara Schlesinger Gallery (2008), and two shows with Jan Baum Gallery (2003, 2001). McClure’s work has also been included in numerous group shows including Prep School at the Torrance Art Museum earlier this year, Artists’ Tales at the Irvine Fine Art Center in 2012, among others at Andi Campognone Projects in Pomona, CA, Angel’s Gate Cultural Center in San Pedro, and the Center for Contemporary Art in Sacramento.

Desert Bloom - Collage and Mixed Media - 15" x 20"

Desert Bloom – Collage and Mixed Media – 15″ x 20″


From July 31 thru August 24, 2014 – Sin City Gallery

‘A Walk on the Wild Side’ by JK Russ takes inspiration from Lou Reed’s legendary 1972 album Transformer.

The themes of fantasy, seduction, illusion and transformation explored in the eleven album tracks are reflected in Russ’ mixed media and collage works.

“Well, you know what happens after dark.
When rattlesnakes lose their skins and their hearts.
And all the missionaries lose their bark.
Oh, all the trees are calling after you.
And, all the venom snipers after you.
Are all the mountains bolder after you?”
~ Andy’s Chest by Lou Reed.

uss is originally from New Zealand where she graduated with a BVA (photography) from MIT Faculty of Creative Arts in Auckland in 2001. In August 2010, Russ relocated to Las Vegas, USA, where she has become known for her mixed media and video works, which reflect her interest in performance, gender and sexuality. Her work has been described as absorbing the awe of the desert and its sculptural rock formations and creatures, along with her observations of the sexually charged casino culture, built on fantasy and illusion.

From Jul 26 2014 to Mar 22, 2015 – The Museum of Modern Art, New York

A preeminent artist of belle époque Paris, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) brought the language of the late-19th-century avant-garde to a broad public through his famous posters, prints, and illustrations for journals and magazines. A cultural nexus, he connected artists, performers, authors, intellectuals, and society figures of his day, creating a bridge between the brothels and society salons of the moment. His work allows entry into many facets of Parisian life, from politics to visual culture and the rise of popular entertainment in the form of cabarets and café-concerts.

Organized chronologically, David Bowie Is traces the artist’s evolution from his years as a teenager in the 1950s to the early 2000s when he retired from touring. On display are more than sixty stage costumes including the Ziggy Stardust bodysuits (1972), designed by Freddie Burretti; Kansai Yamamoto’s flamboyant creations for the Aladdin Sane tour (1973); and the Union Jack coat designed by Bowie and Alexander McQueen for the Earthling album cover (1997).
longside such prominent examples are more personal items such as never-before-seen storyboards, handwritten set lists and lyrics, and some of Bowie’s own sketches, musical scores, and diary entries, which help reveal the evolution of his creative ideas. His chameleonic character transformations throughout the years are central to his contribution to contemporary culture.
