OLIVER NOWLIN
SNEZAWA PETROVIC
SILVIA KWAK-SIMMONS

 

LA Artcore is pleased to present a three-person exhibit at LA Artcore’s Lincoln Heights gallery in the Brewery Arts Colony bringing three distinctive creative concepts together.

Los Angeles artist Silvia Kwak-Simmons’ mixed-media works on paper take heed in nature’s boundless energy, employing the use of monotype and collaging techniques woven together to produce shifts in overall perspective. Kwak-Simmons’ use of geometric formal structures allow for color to be fully explored.

Los Angeles artist Oliver Nowlin’s paintings combine painted surfaces and neon lighting fixtures to extend a painting/sculpture relationship. Nowlin’s paintings articulate memory through irregularly shaped panels, gauzy and off-kilter geometries, impasto-ed splotches riddled and pockmarked by time, and buzzing with light. Nowlin deals in such contradictions of life and death in which his art is conveyed.

The paintings of Snezana Petrovic titled Woman Shamans explore women’s unspoken history of healing through magic and transformation. Petrovic employs the figure, as well as an investigation of line, paints’ physicality, and negative space. The artist delves into many different cultures and civilizations including Rome, Ajnu, Serbia, Mongol, India, and Sufi Mysticism, where matriarchal culture fully developed. The oral tradition has largely carried secrets of health and enlightenment with the exception of African proverbs which were kept in visual form. All stories and portraits are interwoven with the artist’s personal journey as a... “globetrotter in search of binding substance between diverse traditions.”

DON MCKINNEY

LA Artcore is pleased to present a solo painting exhibit by Don McKinney at its Union Center for the Arts space in Little Tokyo. This exhibit examines McKinney’s abstract pictorial language as a meditation on perception by defining space as a closed system that is both circuitous, opaque, and self-producing. Mckinney’s clashing of winding, sinewy, and arching forms is revealed through their careful modeling via an exploration of color and tonality cast through a central and artificial light source. Labyrinth-like and defined by fissures, and hard-edged geometries, Mckinney’s paintings invoke alien spaces informed by computer-animated graphics, virtual spaces, and their construction by way of technological progression. Its many visual twists, turns, and rabbit holes yield a pulsating visual movement that is expressive of questions raised about the impact of technology upon humanity. Whereas Mckinney’s previous body of work addressed this subject matter through modeling animated architectural clusters and visual contraptions, his current body of work develops a purely abstract language out of gestural and spontaneous pencil sketches with which the artist rediscovered and salvaged. This cyclical process builds upon Mckinney’s overall statement where the reuse of detritus becomes central to the function of the creating meaning. LA Artcore invites the public to attend a live conversation with the artist on Sunday, June 4th at 4 p.m.

JIN SIL KIM
VICTORIA LOSCHUK
HUNG VIET NGUYEN

LA Artcore presents a three-person painting exhibit that examines the shifting role of perception and perspective within the contemporary landscape genre. 

Los Angeles artist Jin Sil Kim’s paintings bring an Eastern-Asian conception of the landscape, forming a connection between both traditional and modern notions of landscape. Kim projects lotus flower imagery upon geometric, honey-comb-shaped canvases that suggest a relationship between religious plurality and technological advancement.  

The cropped oil paintings of Los Angeles-based artist Victoria Loschuk explore the landscape through its relationship to photography resulting in tightly-cropped compositions that reflect viewers' subjective gaze. Loschuk's densely-worked paintings utilize subtly-shifting tonalities and explore relationships between color and light that emphasize a slow experience of looking. 

The landscape paintings of Los Angeles artist Hung Viet Nguyen observe specimens in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest, an old-growth forest in Central California with trees over four-thousand years old. Though each specimen is centrally composed, Nguyen develops animated relationships between the foreground, middle ground, and background. Nguyen’s heavily built-up surfaces add sculptural dimension, while each section is stylistically compartmentalized. Nguyen’s paintings through their use of saturated pigments, visual contrast, and physicality express a fully-realized exploration of the creative process through the artist's ongoing involvement with this site.

ANN GOODING
retrospective

LA Artcore is pleased to announce a retrospective by Ann Gooding whose sculptural paintings in acrylic paint, consist of paint spread in a series of layers over wooden substrates that are then incised with carving tools and form larger gestures and/or movements. Like a of flock of birds, school of fish, or stars of a galaxy, the painting's patterned quality evokes phenomena found in the natural world; of smaller pieces working together in unison and forming larger abstract structures from mysterious forces. Different pressures of carving into the paintings reveal a numerous and multi-hued stratum of color and wood. Leaving certain sections of painted surfaces raw and others worked into, and even the exposure of the different varieties of wood laid bare, Gooding produces a dialogue between natural and plastic materials as well as a meditation upon values of exposure and removal.
