Last Saturday night, Jacub Gagnon and Yosuke Ueno opened their joint show Elements and Oddities at the Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City.

Preview: “JEST in Time: The Phylogenesis of Clowns” Benefit @ Distinction Gallery

Clowns are different things to different people. Some have an intense fear of clowns (Coulrophobia), or for some, they are a source of amusement and entertainment. These costumed and masked performers are also fertile subject matter for artists (here and here), but the exhibition we are letting you know about this time, “JEST in Time: The Phylogenesis of Clowns”, will be a benefit show (with all profits to benefit ArtHatch and art scholarships at Palomar college). You can also get a clue as to what […]

Heading their show is master manipulator of pop culture and satirist, David MacDowell. You can’t help but smile when you see the skill in which David takes familiar elements and remixes them into a clever and unexpected composition – like Golem heading over to “Booger King” […]
