Earlier this month, Jeff Soto’s (interviewed) new exhibition Sadlands opened up in West Hollywood at KP Projects. Showing though the end of the month, the striking new body of work featured almost 20 medium to large sized paintings inspired by a post-apocalyptic Southern Californian landscape. Each piece, rendered in vibrant colors, correlates loosely with a location that the Riverside native denoted on a map (displayed in the gallery) with the sides of the frames painted to color coordinate with each pinned location. This conceptual thread nicely holds the new pieces that comprise the show together as well as the amazing details one begins to recognize on closer examination including iconic local landmarks like The Broad, Disneyland’s Matterhorn Mountain, Watts Towers, and Angel’s stadium signage.
