Openings: Marco Zamora – “New Work” @ POVevolving Gallery

Over this past weekend, the POVevolving Gallery hosted Marco Zamora’s new artwork which continues to explore the artist’s fascination with the urban landscape. Featuring large scale paintings and a structure completely formed with cinder blocks, Zamora manages to explore what it means to live within the constructs of a city. For the visitor, it’s easy to take notice of the artist’s appreciation for this type of setting which is captured with rich monochrome shadows and bright pastel colors that streak across the paintings. However, further […]

Next up for the POVevolving Gallery after closing on the Derek Albeck showing will be a visit from urban landscapist Marco Zamora.

Openings: Hueless @ Mallick Williams & Co.

We recently attended the opening of Hueless, a group show of black and white works at Malick Williams & Co. Although the exhibition may have lacked color, it certainly did not lack artistry, with an exciting selection of monochromatic pieces by the likes of D Face, Shepard Fairey, Erik Haze, Curtis Kulig, Pete Watts and Skullphone. The show, most likely unofficially, also extended beyond the walls of the gallery, with several street pieces popping up on the adjacent blocks. Take a look at all our […]

Openings: Marco Zamora and Derek Albeck – “The Fool” @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

Last Thursday night, AM visited the Fecal Face Dot Gallery’s opening of their latest show – “The Fool”. Combining the talents of two LA artists, Marco Zamora and Derek Albeck, “The Fool” is a perfectly curated and highly cohesive exposition of two wonderfully cohesive styles. Utilizing muted subjects, bright splashes of color, and the occasional reflective surface, “The Fool” is an intriguing look at a variety of subjects, from society’s downtrodden to the viewer themselves.

Preview: Marco Zamora & Derek Albeck – “The Fool” @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

The work of Los Angeles based artist Marco Zamora caught our eye recently as we noticed his show at Derek Albeck was opening soon. His imagery of urban landscapes and the people that inhabit it are done monochromatically with interspersed splashes of color, leading to a nice contrast. The show opens tonight, April 1st, at the Fecal Face Dot Gallery in SF so we look forward to seeing how this body of work turns out. Some additional preview images after the jump…
