PRESS RELEASE

LA Artcore is pleased to present Oginz's first Solo Show in LA since 2005, where the artist exhibited sculpture and drawings regularly for thirty years. Oginz's drawings and sculptures entertain and anthropomorphize socio-technological ideas into scenes of tactility, complexity, and whimsy. A defining mark of Oginz's process is in experimentation and simultaneous embrace of divergent narratives, materials, and forms where rigid thematic cohesion is subverted by developing technical and conceptual ideas. What unfolds is a recurring dialogue between societal advancement and its dissolution. Oginz imbues his work with both primitive, futuristic and industrialist perspectives as they awkwardly, humorously, and painstakingly attempt to reconcile each other's respective visions. Oginz's art traverses a world of inherent confusion as a product of man's creation. Oginz was an early participant to the Downtown L.A. artist  community establishing a studio on Broadway in 1978. Oginz was a  board member of LACE in its formative years,  a professor at Otis for nineteen years, and exhibited a retrospective of drawings at LACMA in 1997.

PRESS RELEASE

In a group show at LA Artcore's Brewery annex, three artists who stretch the limits of their materials and produce abstraction that challenges our sense of objectivity.

Tom Castelazo works cooperatively with his materials, primaily metal mesh and paint, to produce wall mounted sculptures that are in essence bas-reliefs describing the flow of a line. Viewed from the side, one experiences the physical movements of the artist as he interacts with the material's pliability. Viewed from the front, these movements towards grace, chance and serendipity produce a fascinating texture and filtered light and shadow.

Mike Vegas has been producing a range of work for nearly 30 years, working in painting, drawing, collage, sculpture and photography. The artist has also produced a few books of his work. At first glance his passion for diffused color, earthy pigmentation, and the patterns caused by natural forces, decay, crazing and overlay are clearly something he enjoys.

Jeff Iorillo contrasts well with the other artists he exhibits with, promising large works thick and encrusted with paint using a variety of techniques. From activated, energetic gestural work on easel paintings, to substantial, engrossing wall mounted pavements of poured, diluted and manipulated paint, his work is substantial enough to give any viewer something to chew on.

PRESS RELEASE

In a fascinating survey of evidence for the claim 'opposites attract', husband and wife artists Connie D.K. Lane and William Lane are strikingly polarized in their artistic voices, choice of medium and materials. Perhaps there is also a strain of lively competition in there, as they are prolific and present solid bodies of work.

Connie's work is organic, often appearing to be something you could almost pluck from the earth, but of such character and involved manipulation, the sort of earthy thing that would made you stop the car and investigate in the first place. Tendrils, branches, fibers and pouches create structures that can only come from an artist deeply invested in the expression of the human-nature relationship. For a mature artist who is beginning her career recently, completing her MFA at CSU Long Beach in 2011, we have the opportunity to see where training and experience really introduce their own pragmatic momentum.

William Lane, born in Kalamazoo and long time resident of California, produces work that is by contrast Hard Edge, working with pure color and firm, succinct line, and the relationship of color placed adjacently by the artist into a composition. Directly calling to mind Josef Albers, he too pays homage to the square, but with the more liberal reins of color relationship of Frederick Hammersley or Frank Stella. William is no imitator, he has been teaching art and making this kind of work since the 60's, and is a living witness, member and continuation of Hard Edge abstraction which was unveiled just as his own education as an artist was beginning.
