CHRISTOPHER MARTIN: NATURE RE-EMBODIED


PROFILE

Anna Meliksetian sits down with artist Christopher Martin to learn about his process and vision. Well known for his reverse glass paintings inspired by natural elements, Martin reveals a strong connection to nature that translates beautifully into abstract form. Fabrik: Tell me about your paintings. I know your inspired by nature and that you had an aquarium business. How did that come about? Christopher Martin: I had an import business where I brought in tropical fish and I always had them right in front of me. It was just about tuning into what makes them so desirable. I grew up in Florida so the water element of my work is very prevalent. These creatures are collected and sought after from all over the world because of how the universe put them together in a colored and patterned way. There are around 1500 different types so it just burns into your mind as color set. And then my paintings just kept fusing closer, not to paint the fish, it was about what I saw. It was the opalescence, the iridescence, the slight gradation of colors and how they faded together.

Fabrik: Your paintings are abstract so is it about how you’re processing what you’re seeing? CM: It’s similar to how musicians pull influence from other musical patterns. I pull this massive color theory influence from these animals because I’ve looked at them so much that it just kind of created it’s own little subset in my head and then when I started working on the glass, I saw this amazing clarity, much like water because it’s not a permeable surface. So this stuff moves really fast. It’s got all the characteristics of water on a piece of steel. The fusion of that meeting just got me really excited and that’s where the patterns and replications of those color subsets felt right. Fabrik: Can you describe your technique? CM: You’re looking through a clear sheet into the first layer of paint applied as opposed to the last layer which is essentially what on a canvas or paper piece your eye catches. So it’s the opposite way, which to me is very forward because that is how you see. The first layer of paint that I put on is what you see first and to me it’s a logical order. It feels like 12

I’m pushing things out as opposed to pulling them back to me. They belong together kaleidoscopically and have a real thin opacity. Every layer of paint has a high influence on the one behind as opposed to a flat static stroke. It’s around thirty layers of painting that fuse together. Fabrik: Do you start with something that you conceive? CM: Usually what happens is that these paintings have a lineage to the paintings before them. I’m working on the nuances of fusing things together. Concepts and paintings that I feel had a real impact on me. There are around 40 variations or series in my body of work that continue to evolve but not necessarily in a linear way. It’s like hybrids and they keep on linking together. You can see the pattern in the back of this painting has a tie almost to the back of that painting. You think of a family tree and then the first paintings I painted let’s say 17 or 18 years ago, and then there’s this first one. And then from there this lineage of work that pulls from all these influences. It’s so refined towards the bottom. You start getting down to real fine details. I want to always be ready to add that next layer of lineage and feel like the work can self generate. Web fabrikmagazine.com

PROFILE

Fabrik: What artist do you think would love your work and connect with it? CM: I would hope it would be Brice Marden. I would love to shoot the shit with him one day. I think his branch paintings and his stick paintings are just cool. Fabrik: It’s often difficult for artists to deal with the business of art but you’ve been involved in the commercial aspect of it early on in your career. Can you tell me more about that? CM: To me it’s always felt completely natural that if you’re passionate about your work that you control an element of how your work meets the people and for me that was having my first little gallery space. When I opened the gallery it felt like this natural ease. Fabrik: When did you open it? CM: My first space was in 1994. It was a little space upstairs. I could work in it and I could set it up so that I could close the workspace off and it looked like a nice little gallery. Cool hard wood floors, this mid-century kind of modernist building across from a beautiful park in Dallas. It was 600 bucks and I don’t even think I had enough money in the bank when I signed the lease. Fabrik: How do you balance your life where you have the energy and drive to paint and then have this business of selling art? You have four galleries now. CM: I have a lot of help, but I had to do it all on my own for a long time. To me it was kind of like I made something that really moved me. It first has to get my signature on it. I have to feel like this is why I paint. This is why I want to look at my work when it’s finished and if I could get to that level I’m excited about it. Then I want to share it with someone else and I would love to share it with someone who wants to swap a check for it. That was just a natural feeling. The passion about the artwork is one thing but the passion about being an artist and continuing to be an artist, that’s my passion. So I know that I have to take care of my family and my kids, my businesses, and all my financial obligations that everyone has. That process is full circle. To me that’s the natural process of the whole thing.

PROFILE WORDS VERONICA GONZALEZ IMAGES COURTESY WEST OF ROME

I OPENED THE GALERIE FONTANA IN MILAN IN 1992, BUT I ALWAYS LOOKED FOR WAYS

WOMAN TO WORK IN DIFFERENT MODALITIES. I NEVER WANTED TO BE A DEALER! I WAS ALWAYS

OF THE CITY LESS INTERESTED IN EXHIBITING WORK THAN IN PRODUCING ADVENTUROUS THINGS.

— Emi Fontana

IT WAS IN THIS SPIRIT that Emi Fontana began her gallery, and under this same precept of not being a dealer and producing adventurous things she has continued, through her arts production enterprise West of Rome, to push for this non-dealer based form of artistic enactment. Through the unexpected placement of art in and around the city of Los Angeles, Fontana and the artists she works with not only enliven the city for us but also beg us to question our relationship to our particular form of urban space (expansive and de-centered) while at the same time asking us to question our experience and to engage with and then re-configure our expectations of art in this place. Under Fontana's direction West of Rome began it's nomadic exhibitions in Los Angeles in 2005 - enlivening this city through the unexpected placement of art – on billboards, in historic cemeteries, boarded up windows, abandoned warehouses, grand gardens... This kind of urban activation makes sense in a city as sprawling as Los Angeles – a city which seems to exist as an actualized palimpsest of the ethereal web, for this city resembles the ephemeral internet experience in its de-centered and constantly shifting information and form morphing: it is always & rapidly changing. The art she produces is an image of this for it has to be taken in and felt as a spilling 24

EMI FONTANA IN MARNIE WEBER'S FURRY WOMB


PROFILE

out of information through an actuating and then expanding out that makes our experience of space and relations and objects and information and architecture exciting and unexpected once again. You search it out or come upon it, and so you must interact with it, even if that action is simply to turn your head away. You run into things because of her unexpected placements – a billboard of Cindy Sherman, for instance, high above Sunset Boulevard - in the same way you might run into an image of a Paul Klee puppet while searching for dolls for your young daughter on the internet. Emi Fontana gifts us with the exceptional experience of being surprised by art, being made to ask questions about time and position and what it means to live in a city as variously complex as Los Angeles. Her work with artists forces us to think of the city as a living thing, a body even, the freeway as arteries of that body, of constant motion, of life happening, of art kamikaze style… Sure, others are doing this type of thing in LA now, but Emi Fontana was the first. She has called Los Angeles the “perfect set” and of course she is referencing the movies, the mental landscape we have in relation to this city through the cinema, but there is something else there too, for she makes us interact with Los Angeles in a different and new way once again; it is so familiar a palette because of all of the representations of it with which we are constantly bombarded, yet because of this familiarity it is the perfect set for the placement of the unexpected; she helps to make this city uncanny once again...

“Its vastness and the availability of open space and wide horizons are very inspiring to get out of the white box.” E.F. There is no longer any white box where Emi is concerned... her set is the whole of LA. By 2008 Fontana had closed her gallery in Milan and was working and living full time here in the open spaces of Los Angeles. And we are thankful to have her, because through her activations she can take us outside of our mundane and preconceived notions of this city, while helping us to convince the rest of the world that LA is where it's at. And though there is no white box, things still do happen, and of course this makes us question the order in which decisions are made upon such a large space: what, by whom, goes where. In this regard Fontana has said: “First, we consider the art; then, the typology of the space; and then the neighborhood. There are no fixed rules when you get into the public realm you have to release control and pick up chances and accept changes.” 26

PROFILE

FROM MARNIE WEBER'S ETERNITY FOREVER

This is art for the public, after all, and we know that Fontana must always be questioning what it means to bring art to the people – the initiated travel to it, we know, but the uninitiated come upon it too (this reminds us of the web again - the interesting initiated and interested uninitiated activate it, come upon something, research it perhaps, go below the surface a little, grow and flow because of this constantly expanding access to information, which in its best experiencing of it always leads to something else, perhaps even something deeper). The projects themselves vary from helping Olafur Eliasson, after a vast project at the Tate, create a work in a domestic setting, a home in Pasadena built by Escher and GuneWardena. She organized a show in an empty bridal store with Diana Thater and T. Kelly Mason. Through Women in the City she has worked with Cindy Sherman to install an Untitled Film Stills billboard on Sunset and Olive, has produced video billboards for Barbara Kruger, a sound installation at the Huntington Gardens for Louse Lawler, and stickers, posters and LED messages which were widely disseminated throughout the city for Jenny Holzer. Presently 28

CINDY SHERMAN UNTITLED FILM STILLS

Jennifer Bolande has created a set of sculptural plywood curtains for various buildings in Pasadena, and these will expand into the rest of the city. Just closed is a massive collaborative installation The Voyage of Growth and Discovery by Mike Kelly and Michael Smith in the Farley Storage Building in Eagle Rock. Eternity Forever is a forthcoming film/performance/exhibition by Marnie Weber at the Mountain View Cemetery and Mausoleum in Altadena. Emi does not like to drive on freeways, and avoids them as much as she can - this is uncommon in a city as vast as Los Angeles, but she does it, drives the streets. I like to imagine her trawling the city in her Prius... searching it out for possible sites, investigating it, and allowing herself to be surprised by what it has to offer her, a wall here, a billboard there, an open space, an empty warehouse, a stately garden, a cemetery peopled by the corpses of silent era film stars... she is something like a Los Angeles site detective‌ searching the city out for what it might have to offer art, seeking the best possible spots for enabling her artists' interventions and enactments and making the city a more vibrant place as a result.

We have done this one a number of times over the years and it is really amazing, the work is all over the place. Michael Salerno entered it once, and we ended up giving him a solo show—that is how I found out he did digital hybrids of his paintings.” A successful artist in his own right, Bruce has woven the world of art and technology throughout his career, from dotcom ventures in San Francisco, through to involvement in the electronica music scene. In addition to hosting assorted shows at his downtown space nestled in 5th and Main, Bruce has shown at a range of noted art institutions including a cellphone photography show at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, with additional Video and photography exhibited Laznia Center for Contemporary Art (Poland), Guggenheim Gallery (Chapman University), California Museum of Photography (U.C.

Previous shows have included “Inversions,” (shown at LACDA in May 2009) and a forthcoming exhibition called “Moving Violations.” Asked about the former, Bruce reveals, “the Inversion series traces many aspects of my personal creative progression. The tone of the works is playful in form, reversing the “rules” of photography and imaging reveling in their general “badness.” “Having grown up in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley (born in Encino, raised in Tarzana), I became keenly aware of the vast amount of toxic substance being ejected into our local atmosphere as a child.” “This blankly obvious transgression against anything remotely good, healthy or appealing in any way, of course spawned a bohemian inversion: environmentalist hippie types.

Little did I know during this time some abstruse research was in its childhood as well; people were detecting a rise in temperature in our atmosphere due to carbon emissions.” “Years later, with a psyche embedded with these stark memories, I went without a car for two years and shot images and video of our injured sky through crud festooned bus windows or standing around at bus stops. I utilized fancy cell phones and obsolete digital cameras, each of which had its own characteristics in terms of the digital artifact they created. “Grunge” from the images became the raw materials I worked with. It was a formal exploration that was also expressive of the zeitgeist of my subject, the vast mechanized landscape of my city and the blue, but menacing sky above it; carbon emissions are invisible.” “Moving Violations,” another solo show set for 2011, “explores stills and video shot through dirty windows of buses, cars and trains traversing Hollywood and central L.A. and composited at different frame rates, compression levels, resolutions and varied states of digital degeneration. There are many kinds of violations in these images, but the game is to balance them formally, get everything to hang together regardless of their sources. This requires endless experimentation.” “The images are printed on canvas and overpainted with translucent varnishes, gels and in an artificial manner that emphasizes the negative space and very large pixilated 36

They include rushing across the freeways during the day and night, rain or shine. There is endless winding and turning on journeys across town, many are akin to situationalist dérives caused by erroneous directions given by GPS systems.” “There is the camp or pop value of the drive-thru experience which is also a record of corporate unhealthiness weaving its way into our paths in a city where you pull up for your Big Mac, then drive-thru the pharmacy for your cholesterol medications. Ultimately the collection of works becomes a personal taxonomy of routes where the individual becomes a processed particle moved along the networked system that constitutes L.A. as he pursues the various functions of life.”

COMING OUT, GOING IN WORDS PETER FRANK

COMING OUT, GOING IN —

ROBERT BERMAN GALLERY BERGAMOT STATION, SANTA MONICA HUGH BROWN HUGH BROWN takes up where earlier appropriation artists — from Sherrie Levine to Scott Grieger — left off. Those second-generation conceptualists questioned issues of artistic originality, authority, and authenticity with a rapier sword, but second-generation appropriationist Brown does it with a chainsaw - that is to say, his appropriative strategy is additive as well as reconstructive, and driven by humor rather than critique. But Brown is not working in a philosophical vacuum; he subtly critiques the “branding” of artworks and not so subtly examines the context of entertainment in which these artworks are so often presented. In fact, his work succeeds precisely because he entertains so well with it. Brown's gimmick is the insertion of a chainsaw into various artworks, some of them sampled, some of them reworked, some of them entirely invented but clearly smacking of the artist's signature style.

DIANE ARBUS • (CHILD WITH TOY CHAINSAW IN GRIFFITH PARK, LOS ANGELES, 1962), 2008

There are plenty of obvious jokes in Brown's quiver — a chainsaw silhouetted into a “Matisse” cut-out, a Keith Haring centered on a crude rendition of a chainsaw – and some seem not even jokes at all, but dopey attempts to “claim” artists like Lucas Samaras or Robert Mapplethorpe for his “canon.” When one comes across the more intricate japes, however - the “Lucio Fontana” Concetto spaziale whose hole is sawed, the “Hiroshi Fugimoto” movie-theater time-lapse photo of all of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – or satires such as the hilariously inexact restaging of Diane Arbus’ Child with Toy Hand Grenade in Central Park, New York, USA (with a chainsaw, an equally blond girl, and in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, USA), one realizes that Brown's overall conceptual exercise requires him to make flat-footed appropriations precisely in order to set us up for the brilliant ones. Brown's approach to appropriation is that of the shtick comedian, the one who has a signature gag line and an equally identifiable range of targets. His project is a vast exercise in the craft of entertainment — one that insists, often at its own expense, that “craft” and “entertainment” both are part of the artistic discourse.

COMING OUT, GOING IN

DAVID TRULLI DAVID TRULLI 's black and white renditions of emphatically urban spaces - all positioning the viewer in an interior space but filling the image with skyline panoramas seen out large windows - are almost melodramatically compelling in their starkness, elegance, dramatically counterposed composition and light-shadow contrast. They provide us a cockroach-eye view of life - or the lack thereof - in the modern office space. Modern, but not contemporary - the conspicuous absence of computers and the occasional presence of a “vintage” touch-tone phone, Rolodex, or even pencil seem to date the images, anchoring them in the 1970s (say, immediately before answering machines). It comes as no surprise to find out that Trulli was a cinematographer for two decades before he turned to the very still medium of scratchboard; his emphatically lit, vertiginously tilted, carefully anachronized pictures fairly scream “POV.” Trulli's gift is less in his ability to set up these situations than in his ability to hand-render them in such an unlikely but visually effective format. This format, with its reliance on chiaroscuro and a texture suspended between woodcut and photolithography, adds another layer of anachronism to Trulli's art, connecting it to the pre-World War II “graphic novel” of such masters as Rockwell Kent. But if Trulli is paying obeisance to the graphic masters of an era well past, he is celebrating the cinematic masters of a more recent era, the American auteurs of the postwar period, movie craftspeople who could make a story gripping with the exquisitely balanced expoitation of acting, writing, and camera talent.

THROUGH THE LENS WORDS JACKI APPLE IMAGES COURTESY NEWTOWN ARTS

NEWTOWN ARTS GENUINE INNOVATION AND EXPERIMENTATION OFTEN REQUIRES THE KIND OF RISK-TAKING THAT ALLOWS FOR AND ACCEPTS THE POSSIBILITY OF FAILURE AS PART OF THE PROCESS. OVER THE PAST TWO DECADES THIS APPROACH TO ART MAKING HAS RARELY BEEN EMBRACED BY THE HIGHLY COMMERCIALIZED ARTS ESTABLISHMENT IN LOS ANGELES. IN THE SURPRISINGLY sparse and underfunded world of L.A. non-profit arts organizations and artist-run spaces that have supported unconventional, hybrid, experiential and ephemeral art forms, Pasadena-based NewTown Arts has, for the past fifteen years, heroically adhered to its mission of creating opportunities for local “artists whose work falls outside, or on the fringe of commercial possibilites” . And despite the economic difficulties the arts have faced this past year, NewTown remains “a persistent weed in the garden”, as its ambitious roster of events for the coming season demonstrates. Founded in 1993 by Richard Amromin, Terry Cannon and Beth Block of Filmforum, composer, producer, and arts administrator Amromin has been NewTown’s Artistic Director, guiding vision and chief fundraiser since it’s inception. He is assisted by a dedicated Board of nineteen artists whose collaborative brainstorming determines the themes for the shows. Free from the burden of maintaining a physical space, NewTown functions as a presenter and producer working with both public and private organizations ranging from government to non-profit arts spaces, landlords, and retail establishments such as Pasadena’s One Colorado. Sites have included parks, urban spaces, empty commercial buildings, front lawns and residences, theaters, storefronts, billboards, and even a Drive-In. As a laboratory for innovative presentational formats, NewTown provides artists with an opportunity to do what wouldn’t otherwise be done. Amromin describes his role as a “buffer between property owners, the public, and the artists”. He is committed to “facilitating a framework that challenges and stretches both the artists and the audiences”, and contextualizing the works in a non-critical situation outside the “art frame“ that allows the public to experience it on their own terms and turf. Site specific installations and performances employing both sight and sound, have explored environmental and ecological issues and the interface between nature and culture as viewers have strolled along the trails in Arroyo Seco and Hahamongna Watershed Parks. 46

"TELESENESCENCE" BY LAURA YILMAZ — A MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION COMBINING VIDEO, ANIMATION AND SCULPTURAL ELEMENTS THAT EXAMINES THE INTERSECTION OF BIOLOGY AND TECHNOLOGY AS A METAPHOR FOR THE AGING PROCESS.

Shows are curated around a concept by a small committee, and selections are based on quality over quantity without prejudice for the artist’s place in his/her career. As long as the artist has gone the whole way, if ten out of twenty pieces turn out to be fully realized successes, and the others fall short of expectation, Amromin is happy that he’s done his job. He also insists that artists be treated as professionals. Thus it is central to his fundraising efforts, and a strict policy that artists are paid for their work, even if the honorarium is modest. The programming emphasis is on combining genres and whenever possible creating new hybridizations, thus there are no restrictions on discipline or genre.

musicians and film/video artists. Cams, Cranks, and Computers: New Machines, New Music presented an evening of installations and performances by innovative creators of new sonic machines inspired by the great music machines of yore, For Speak/ See in 2006, NewTown commissioned six outstanding experimental animators and six poets to create six new collaborative works ranging in subject from political activism to sexuality, aging, patriotism and a dystopian answer to the question, “What’s it all about?”. The 2008 Hugely Tiny Festival held in a vast empty former furniture store in the heart of Pasadena’s Playhouse District was all about scale. A dizzying expanse of minuscule screens, sculptures, installations, dioramas, animatronics, books, fabrics and performances, proved bigger isn’t always better. Convergences, which opened somewhat fortuitously on September 11, 2010 in the Mezzanine Gallery of the The Armory Center for the Arts, in Pasadena’s Old Town, is a major exhibition of multidisciplinary works, all with media arts as an integral component. It features eleven adventuresome new works by artists from across the nation, including L.A.’s Nancy Buchanan and Ismael De Anda, Claudia Bucher, Steve Shoffner, and Lisa Mann. In difficult times the arts are often viewed as a luxury to be put aside until the economy hopefully has an inevitable resurrection and stabilization. NewTown, true to form, counters that view by proposing that “this is exactly when people are in need of art ..to pierce the fabric of their workaday world with the unexpected.” A time for “reality to take a catnap, and let the senses of wonderment and delight hold sway.“ Thus, for the 2010-2011season NewTown has embarked on a modest $10,000 fundraising campaign for one of it’s most far-reaching site specific projects. PopUps and Other Acts of Art, will be a series of ephemeral performing, media and visual arts works in sites where people work and play throughout Pasadena and Los Angeles. Its proposals include commissioning artists to create three to five bronze Memorial Plaques permanently commemorating Pasadena’s overlooked, yet significant people and events. PopUp Projections on the many blank empty walls in the city will activate otherwise underserved public spaces, unexpectedly transforming the general public into an audience for rare and new video art. A Guerrilla Choir of six vocalists will be employed as a covert Choir bringing beautiful and unanticipated music to unlikely public spaces. The performers will appear to outside observers as anonymous iPod wearing individuals. Imagine a group entering a public space such as a grocery store or city bus, never interacting in any visible way with one another. Once in the space, following audio cues through their earpieces, they will begin to create subtle, static vocal structures which at first may not even be perceived, but will gradually infiltrate the awareness of the general public. When it is apparent the public has become aware of the event, the singers will wander to another site, thus being capable of reaching whole regions in one evening. Flat Bed Performances on a rented flatbed truck adapted as a mobile stage will bring theater to the audience. Over the course of one day, the truck may be driven to a variety of public locations where people are known to congregate. Imagine a five minute 48

renditionof Hamlet, or perhaps an excerpt of Gertrude Stein, performed for the predictable lunch line at an In ‘N Out Burger. Looking ahead at where emerging artists are going, Amromin is very encouraged. After a period of digital fixation he now sees a young generation who have absorbed the digital revolution, and are moving on to focus on the creative content. “The digital has become just another tool, part of the traditional set like a violin, or a pencil. They can now look at things historically and esthetically in every discipline and combine visual, sonic, and performance media in an endless number of new ways.” Next, Amromin is looking forward to the day he can pass on NewTown’s leadership to an equally dedicated and energetic young person, and he can return to being a full time composer. But that will have to wait until the PopUps and Other Acts of Art project is completed. Donors and sponsors give this ever-optimistic maverick a hand!

ART WALK WORDS DALE YOUNGMAN IMAGES RICK MENDOZA

EXPLORING THE ARTS DISTRICT THE FIRST FABRIK-SPONSORED Arts District Art Walk was held on June 26, with over 60 participating artists, galleries and small businesses. The original Arts District just east of downtown LA is an area whose boundaries of Alameda, the LA River, 1st and 7th streets has gone through many changes in the past few decades. In the 80’s there were so many galleries in the region that bus tours used to be arranged. Now, most of them are gone, but the artists remain, many of them unrepresented by traditional galleries or agents. Therefore, we at FABRIK decided to coordinate an event to bring business and attention to a neglected, but exciting neighborhood, and organized a studio tour to make their work accessible to the public. With a shuttle bus making continuous loops through the neighborhood, hundreds of art fans were therefore able to meet artists and see work that was languishing unseen in the live/work loft spaces that have come to define the area. Lili Lakich is one artist who has contributed greatly to the changes in the neighborhood since she first opened her doors 30 years ago. Lakich founded the original Museum of

PERSIA WHITE PERFORMING AND SHOWCASING HER ART AT THE FACTORY.

Neon Art there in 1982, and used to have huge opening events, with the likes of Melissa Etheridge performing for hundreds of guests. Although she is no longer affiliated with the museum, her “Sirens” studio near Traction and Third houses her incredible collection of work both large and small, but open by appointment only or for special events. Several of her large-scale works are public art, including the LA Angel at the MOCA Parking Garage, and at the Van Nuys Fly Away, a commission by LA World Airports. Nearby, a noteworthy artist team, Robert Reynolds and Gemme Sonejo also drew a large crowd, with between 350 and 400 visitors throughout the course of the day. Robert has lived downtown since 1991, always within a mile of his current location at 821 Traction. His work is on permanent display at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin and also currently at the Torrance Art Museum and at Aryai Gallery, 606 Westmount Drive in West Hollywood. Reynolds commented on the traffic during this event, noting that the crowd was very different from the Second Thursday Downtown Art Walk, with many attendees coming from Pasadena, West Hollywood, and even a few from Orange County. They were “older, more sophisticated, genuinely interested in the art, and asked intelligent questions about process and inspiration” he remarked. Gemma, a native of Venice, Italy who has been living with Robert for 6 years, says the atmosphere in the Arts District is inspiring, driven by the like-mindedness of the inhabitants. “There is hope here, because there is synergy and collaboration, here more than in many places. There is a sense of community now, and we are very happy to be part of it.” The 821 Traction complex is also home to artists, Milo Cil, Mary Lou Ynda, and Project Butterfly. Web fabrikmagazine.com

ART WALK

NEON ARTIST LILI LAKICH

Qathryn Brehm has been living downtown since 1979, and in her same location in the Arts District since 1985. She is a member of the Los Angeles River Artist & Business Association (LARABA), which was formed in the late 70’s to create a voice for the artists and businesses in the area. Joel Bloom, a crusader for the arts, was on that original board, and is credited with the naming of the district. Qathryn remembers the early 80s, when there were more galleries here than in downtown, and the community thrived. But then the riots happened and everything changed. People no longer felt safe, and the neighborhood – and many businesses - suffered. Now, she comments on how the new Metro station, luxury condos, newly refurbished lofts, unique restaurants, jazz clubs, and galleries once again, have many artists – and patrons – returning. There are many art-centric live/work lofts in the Arts District. One such location is 1308 Factory Place, where dozens of artists live in large spacious areas, working, selling, and occasionally opening their doors to the public. During the next art walk, make sure to visit Ramorley Photography, Buddha Cat Press, Dialect Gallery, Anton Godard, Donna Louise Seron, and Luis Sanchez, all in that location. Sanchez, a painter and sculptor, was profiled in last month’s FABRIK, and recently had a show at Lois Lambert’s Gallery of Functional Art at Bergamot Station. He reported decent sales on art walk day in smaller canvases, clocks, and assemblage sculptures. (Sanchez has been living on dialysis and is planning a fundraiser for post-transplant costs on Oct. 9, in a large vacant space behind that building. For information visit http://web.mac.com/sanchezluis1/iWeb Also behind that building (1330 Factory Place) is a hidden jewel, the International ADC Contemporary Art Gallery. Their program “Building Bridges” hosts international artists 52

from Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Spain, with rotating exhibits from foreign museums and cultural centers. Intriguing and dramatic works in oil, mixed media and photography, this gallery always has something unique and diverse, erasing cultural barriers with expressive and thematic contemporary art. The current exhibition is a solo show by Argentinian artist Andrea Juan entitled “ The Invisible Forest� and features video, digital art and photography of Antarctica. One of the biggest success stories of that first art walk was Ashleigh Sumner, of Sumner Art Studio at 1820 Industrial Place. Although she hosted only about 30-40 visitors to her studio, she wound up with 3 sales and a large commission from a law firm. Her multilayered colorful abstracts are often inspired by the urban landscape and downtown highrises. Her new works will be available for viewing at the next art walk. A much-anticipated final stop for many art-walkers was the FABRIK-sponsored gallery, The Factory, at 912 East Third Street, where Persia White, actress, singer, animal rights activist and artist treated about 300 guests to an intimate performance at her lively art reception. Featured in a solo show, her large-scale mixed-media artworks were lyrical and sensual, and a dramatic backdrop for her powerful voice. It was an inspiring way to end an afternoon of vibrant contemporary art, unexpected discovery, and expressive performances. We hope you will join us for the next Arts District Art Walk on Saturday, October 23, when we will expand the shuttle bus stops, and have even more participation from the community.

ARTABOUTTOWN WORDS PETER FRANK

UNIVERSITY ART MUSEUM AT CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY LONG BEACH Perpetual Motion: Michael Goldberg THRU DECEMBER 12 Michael Goldberg was perhaps the quintessential New York painter. A “child” of abstract expressionism, he was one of the best known and most widely respected artists in that movement's second generation. Goldberg was always looking for balance and contradiction in his painting, slipping figurative references into his abstraction, hard edges into his painterly gestures, urban grays and browns amidst his bright colors, passages of seductive lyricism among his muscular, even aggressive forms. No matter what phase of his sixty-year career he was in, Goldberg painted with tough elegance and understated eloquence. This retrospective is a series of delights, a string of heroic and delectable statements about what painting can be. It is also a series of surprises, exposing us to a restless imagination and a tireless hand, an eye that relished rhythm and texture, and a sensibility too honest to strike poses. As virtuosic a paint-handler as Goldberg was, he never stopped to admire or show off his abilities, but applied them to a continually evolving “adventure” in painting, almost as if there was no boundary between one painting and the next, only a shift in formal strategy or in response to an outside source (such as the Italian landscape or a poem by a friend). Goldberg lived to paint and embraced the world by painting, and such exuberance explodes from everything he made. For more information, please visit their website at: http://www.csulb.edu/org/uam/

SANTA MONICA MUSEUM OF ART Combustione: Alberto Burri and America Libro/Oggetto: Italian Artists' Books, 1960-Now THRU DECEMBER 18 The international reputation of Alberto Burri is, finally, being revised and returned to its original luster.

any of his fellow painters in the postwar Euro-American avant garde - not least his compatriot Lucio Fontana - Burri's burnt, torn, thoroughly distressed and begrimed painting-collages fusing gritty pigments and discarded materials subsequently fell into eclipse - although artists never stopped admiring the dynamic pathos of his brave compositions, compositions which do not find beauty in ugliness so much as they make ugliness itself seem beautiful. Certainly, Burri invested his art with a dark passion - drawn in particular from his wartime experience - and a love of material sensuality whether raw or burnt. Burri's relationship with this country was crucial to his artistic career: he began making art as a prisoner of war in Texas, his first prominent gallery and museum shows were in New York, and he maintained a home in the Hollywood Hills between the 1960s and '80s. Accompanying this homage to Burri in America is a broad survey of Italian artists' books, ranging over several generations, many styles, many materials, and many attitudes towards what an artist's book – indeed, what a book – really is. Painters, sculptors, designers, poets, musicians, and performance artists have made these paginated objects, filling them with images, marks, ideas, materials, and whatever else these indexical structures can hold.

PASADENA MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA ART California Design Biennial 2010: Action/Reaction, Desire: Six Los Angeles Artists, Megan Geckler: Every Move You Make, Every Step You Take THRU OCTOBER 31 Unlike its predecessors the fourth California Design Biennial has been not juried but curated in each of its five categories (industrial design, fashion, graphic, transportation, and, for the first time, architecture). The curators have looked for designs that respond to the emergencies and exigencies of contemporary life, whether ecological, economical, political or social. The concerns may not be exclusive to California, but the solutions are proposed here by designers based in the state. “Desire” gathers together six prominent artists working in Los Angeles who respond to the city's “landscape of desire,” that is, the commodification of sex and pleasure that goes on in and through the city's entertainment industries. Spiritualism, consumerism, and identity (in cultural and gender terms) also feature in the sensual but often alienating work, abstract, figurative, and fantastical, of Linda Stark, Tom Knechtel, Iva Gueorguieva, Monica Majoli, Gajin Fujita, and David Grant. Another local artist receiving increasing attention, Megan Geckler, constructs a dense but expansive sitespecific installation out of multicolored flagging tape (the kind of plastic ribbon used to mark space on construction sites). The tightly woven structure contains literally thousands of strands of tape, their interweave forming a tent-like canopy.

POMONA MUSEUM OF ART Steve Roden: In Between THRU JANUARY 9, 2011

ARMORY CENTER FOR THE ARTS Steve Roden: When Words Become Forms THRU DECEMBER 19 Triple (or quadruple) threat Steve Roden has been painting, sculpting, performing and sounding long enough to warrant a juicy mid-career survey like this - and, more importantly, he has been doing impressive work in all these disciplines almost from the first. Roden subscribes to Edgard Varese's definition of music as “organized 60

sound,” and organizes sound not only to make musical sense, but to make visual sense. Roden is a master of the understatement, of the sub-prominent, of the little. His sound installations are often next to impossible to hear; his paintings, filled with eccentric shapes and gloweringly compelling colors, can be pocket-size. But in their very modesty and intimacy Roden's structures propose a vastness both of scale and of intention. By forcing us to listen hard for his sounds, he makes us hear other sounds as well - and makes us just generally appreciate acoustical as well as optical smallness. Even his larger works are about mixing an informality of physical substance with a complexity of presence; Roden thinks like a chamber music composer or the brains behind a two-person rock band. It's perhaps deliberately ironic, then, that Roden's other museum exhibit would consist of several giant free-standing structures - bristling clusters of wooden bars, many of them brightly hued - infused with sound and, this time, video as well. Such bigness would seem antithetical to Roden's aesthetic, but in fact he is no miniaturist, only a minimalist with flair. Roden will be giving a free improvised sound performance (or, if you would, “concert”) using found objects, instruments, field recordings, old records, and other sound sources at the Armory on Thursday October 28, 7:30 p.m. For more information, please visit their websites at http://www.pomona.edu/museum and http://www.armoryarts.org
