Mark Whalen is an Australian born, Los Angeles based artist. Whalen expresses satirical social narratives in seemingly universal situations. The most recent series of sculptural works continues his study into the complexities of displacement and positioning that we, as both individuals and a species, experience through our evolutionary trajectory. Construction netting captures, cordons and compartmentalizes our distinctive characteristics as they shift under the weight of societal pressure through this ever-changing global economy.
Launch LA is pleased to present Out of Body featuring paintings by Jonathan Apgar, Tiffany Livingston, Victor Reyes and sculpture by Alisa Ochoa. Out of Body focuses on work that attempts to capture the invisible. All four artists in this exhibition embrace the unknown. They allow their processes to guide them towards a resolution that embodies a feeling, sound, or vibration. The show is curated by Rema Ghuloum and runs from December 10, 2016 – January 7, 2017. Opening Reception: Saturday, December 10, 6 – 9 PM. More information and images after the jump!
Los Angeles based artist Erika Lizée recently completed a 6’ x 12’ installation for BLAM Los Angeles, titled “Seed of Life.” The Seed of Life is a geometric design created through the repetition of seven overlapping circles. If the pattern is continued up to nineteen circles, the design grows to become the ancient symbol, The Flower of Life. This image has been used throughout time as a symbol of existence, creation and fertility. The inclusion of this sacred geometry in her work has become a way to connect with humanity throughout time, through the universal language of geometry. These images speak to the deep-rooted questions we have faced throughout time in relation to the existence of the universe and our role in in.
