Openings: REVOK – “Gilgamesh” @ Known Gallery

Not only did Known Gallery host an opening reception from SABER (interviewed) on Saturday night (covered), the Los Angeles showspace also featured new works from REVOK in a joint exhibition. Entitled Gilgamesh, the collection of intricately assembled sculptural pieces represent a carefully selected montage of found materials garnered from the slowly decaying areas of Detroit, REVOK’s current city of choice and source of inspiration. These forgotten pieces of the Motor City were constructed into an intriguing display of diamonds, triangles, rectangles and other irregular polygonal shapes. Also seen in the […]

Openings: SABER – “Beautification” @ Known Gallery

Over the weekend, the Known Gallery in the heart of Los Angeles brought the summer heat with a joint exhibition between SABER (interviewed) & REVOK, two LA’s most wanted. First up are photos of the graf-inspired works from SABER collectively entitled Beautification. For this showing, record breaking artist decided to move away from the flag-inspired works that he has been working on of late and created a set of mostly figurative paintings centered around urban landscapes superimposed with his signature flowing script.

Openings: Laurie Lipton – “L.A. Sous-Real” @ ACE Gallery

Last weekend, the Ace Gallery in Los Angeles played host to L.A. Sous-Real, the latest solo showing from artist Laurie Lipton (interviewed). Featuring her incredibly detailed graphite works, the works for this show are a personal testimony to her experiences of change and a new environment. She states:  “I am in the peculiar position of being a foreigner in my own country. I just moved back to the USA after living in Europe for over 36 years (more than half my life). This show is […]
