Openings: Korin Faught & Joey Remmers – “Voices of the Lake” & “Sheep’s Clothing” @ Corey Helford Gallery

After visiting Korin Faught’s studio a few days ago (here), we finally got to see the unveiling of her new work on the walls of Corey Helford Gallery. Titled Voices of the Lake, Faught continues to use the theme of reflections and dual imagery in her paintings. This time however, her work features water as a visual motif to explore the hidden and elusive qualities of her subjects. The dark and white colors draping against wooden canvas and the smallest of details on any given […]

Teaser: Eric Haze – “New Mathematics” @ Known Gallery

We last caught up with Eric Haze when he was in Los Angeles working on an installation for The Standard Hotel and at the New York 3D Art Book signing in May. For fans on the West Coast, you’ll be pleased to know that after just returning from Beijing, the NY graffiti legend will be hitting up Los Angeles with a more in-depth showing at the Known Gallery after giving you only a taste of his skills at MOCA’s Art in the Streets. Of course, […]

Studio Visit: Korin Faught

This past weekend, AM had the privilege to visit Korin Faught’s studio as she prepares for the opening of her new solo show which will take place at the Corey Helford Gallery. Entitled Voices of the Lake, her latest artwork will focus on the theme of multiples as a way to explore issues of identity and self-reflection. Using photography and self portraits as a starting point for her artwork, Faught is able to give her paintings an aura of mystery and elusiveness. Equally important, her latest […]

Openings: James Jean REBUS Release & Signing @ LACMA

This past weekend, LACMA celebrated the release of the book, REBUS, by artist James Jean’s (featured). The event began with a discussion in which the LA-based artist went on to explain his background and career as an artist and Giant Robot founder Eric Nakamura (interviewed) was also on hand to expand on James’ work over the years as well as their shared histories. This session was followed by a book signing event in which people lined up and filled the room space to capacity. It […]

Openings: Cyrcle. – “We Never Die” @ Design Matters

Early last week, we gave you a studio visit with the three-man art collective known as Cyrcle. as they were preparing for the first solo show. Well, this past Thursday, their exhibit debuted over at Design Matters and the event helped the group take a step forward in their development as artists. Although they are mostly known for their street art campaigns which have included wheat paste art and a handful of murals, this solo exhibit helped them take their technique into a whole new […]

Openings: Ken Garduno – “Golden Structure” @ LeBasse Projects – Chinatown

A couple Fridays ago, Ken Garduno presented new body of work at the LeBasse Projects Chinatown location. Named Golden Structure, the exhibition exemplifies the artist’s technique with watered down acrylic paintings and his thematic explorations that revolve around the relationships between men and women. Using jealousy and sexual motifs as the catalyst, Garduno manages to present these troubled and tense relationships in a very unique way which features a combination of 1960’s iconography and a color palette that forces the characters to step out of […]

Studio Visit: Mark Whalen (Kill Pixie)

Last week, we featured a video teaser for Mark Whalen’s latest exhibition entitled Anomaly. We were fortunate enough to be able to follow this up with a visit to his studio and document the some of the process as he readies for his September 10th show at the Merry Karnowksy Gallery. If that video didn’t blow you away, this visit should at the least give you a great indication of the hard work put forth by the Australian born artist. Whalen, who also goes by […]

Streets: TrustoCorp (LA) Part 1

Judging from the pictures TrustoCorp sent us, the plan was to take their reality show street satires bi-coastal. The only difference was in New York, they hit up pay phone ads (covered) and in Los Angeles, they used bus bench interventions. You can see a peek of part two of the campaign on the west coast on the sidewalk sticking out behind the benches. We’ll have more on that later but for now, check out more pics of the Somali Shore, Real Housewives of Baghdad, […]

Openings: Risk & Nathan Ota – “That Was Then, This Is Now” @ LeBasse Projects – Culver City

This past weekend, Lebasse Projects hosted a traveling exhibition (see SF coverage) which featured collaborations by artists Risk and  Nathan Ota. Titled That Was Then, This Is Now, the show brought together the two long time friends for an exhibit which showcased a superb collection of artwork diplaying each artist’s strengths and respective styles. While Risk’s work often focused on graffiti-type iconography and lettering, Ota rendered the rest of the paintings with finely detailed settings and characters that at times felt surreal and strange. Although […]
