LA Artcore is pleased to present this exhibit produced by the Southern California Women's Caucus for Art (SCWCA) and L.A. Artcore entitled Pulse of LA. By selecting works of art by twenty-three artists from all corners of the city, curator Leslie Cozzi puts into focus a portrait of Los Angeles through the paces of its twenty-three selected artists whose twenty-nine works in the show reveal essential and underlying thematic and aesthetic undercurrents ultimately revealing something new in the cracks about what it means to create in Los Angeles. The works mine a simultaneity of expressive modalities as well as incorporate alternative histories and artistic movements through a range of media including IPhone photography, site-specific installation, video, photography, sculpture and painting. Taken as a whole, Pulse of LA consists of a myriad of expressive statements by its artists with an overall embrace of a larger development of socio-economic and cultural plurality. Out of this exhibit emerge new patterns, formations and insights into the pulse of Los Angeles.

LA Artcore presents Black and White, a curated exhibit primarily composed of drawings by three local artists. Each artist takes drawing in unique directions, ranging from abstraction to drawing representation directly from the natural world.
Hyung Mo Lee was born in Seoul, So. Korea, and keeps his studio in the Long Beach area. His drawings rise off the paper plane through the cutting and assemblage of his own work, to create sculptural composites. Through shaping the paper and intensive, textural marks, his work reworks the pedestrian idea of what drawing means.
Nguyen Ly was born in Saigon, Vietnam, an educator who specializes in imaginative, highly personal representations of the human figure, he has exhibited extensively in the Los Angeles area. Working from life models with a range of mediums both traditional and experimental, his furtive, gestural strokes recreate the human image into energetic, at times to the point anxious, impressions of specific personalities and human presence.
Jason Lockyear begins with familiar creatures of the natural world – bugs, birds, and animals – and applies to them both speed and character, anthropomorphized impressions of captured moments. Drawn quickly, his work delivers as much information about the way we apply personality to what we see, as they do the furtive glances at living creatures.
