Glen Wexler’s





This was the experience of photographer Glen Wexler, who was commissioned to do an album cover for music producer Quincy Jones, when he was still a student at the Art Center College of Design in 1978. The son of the renowned mid-century modern architect, Donald Wexler, has since photographed nearly 300 album covers. Wexler’s specialty is to take his viewers into constructed worlds of “improbable realities.” Among his clients are Warner Bros., Sony and Capitol Records. His music projects have included musicians such as Michael Jackson, Yes, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, Rush and ZZ Top. And while the Palm Springs Art Museum is currently exhibiting a retrospective of his father’s work, Steel and Shade: The Architecture of Donald Wexler, that ends May 29, Mr. Musichead Gallery in Hollywood is exhibiting, “Audio:Visual”: Album Covers and Portraits by Glen Wexler, opening April 9th and continuing through April 30th. Fabrik had an opportunity to speak to Glen Wexler about his career and work. 10

Fabrik: You were among the original artists to adopt digital image editing, which was important for you to realize your ideas. Why are you interested in these hyper-real narratives or improbable realities? Are you an escapist? Glen Wexler (GW): I was never attracted to photography as a means of documenting the world. In a previous life I would have needed to learn to draw and paint in order to articulate my aesthetic and concepts. I prefer the realism photography allows to create photo-illustrations of manufactured, altered or improbable realities. All of this is designed to create a suspension of disbelief. My work relies on the perceived, but waning, credibility inherent in the photographic image. I recombine elements of the real world to create a fantastical vision in which the elements often react in a surreal or absurd manner. This involves the pre-visualization of the finished image, then breaking down the plan for the final outcome into manageable components to be individually photographed and, finally, digitally seamed together. Fabrik: So what is your reaction if you look at the works of the old masters such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mario Giacomelli or André Kertész? GW: I have incredible admiration and respect for these photographers. I saw Cartier-Bresson’s show at MoMA last year and was blown away by the breadth and importance of his work. That said, my approach to the medium is the antithesis of these great documentary photographers. Their process involves filtering the outside world through their lenses. My approach is to bring the inside out. Fabrik: How did your collaboration with Quincy Jones come about and what idea did you come up with? GW: I met Ed Eckstine, who was Quincy’s right hand man. Quincy was producing a project for the Brother’s Johnson and I was asked to shoot portraits of the brothers for the inside spread. I shot them with a fog machine, and from a low and heroic camera angle - not much of a concept, but it was appropriate for the mood and style of the project. It was a multi-platinum album, which led to other music projects. At first I mostly worked with R+B artists, including Chaka Khan, and I was given the opportunity to art direct and shoot the next Brother’s Johnson album cover for “Light Up the Night.” 12

Fabrik: What were you doing prior to album cover work? And what is it that made you then change directions? GW: I went to Art Center College of Design for the technical training that I believed would exceed the scope of other art schools. It was my intention at that time to use these skills for my fine art work, but at Art Center I was exposed to the commercial works of Irving Penn and the fashion photography of Guy Bourdin, which I started to find more interesting and exciting than fine art photography. I considered moving to Europe to build a portfolio of fashion photography, but had the fantasy of shooting album covers. The recording industry seemed to be a more closed market, but when a door opened, I jumped at the opportunity. Fabrik: What struck your attention, when as a student you began to work with album covers? GW: Album covers presented the opportunity to produce the type of images I wanted to create. My images were not applicable to the advertising market of the time, and it would have been cost prohibitive to create these types of works without the commissions. The recording industry provided a visual “playground” to experiment with elaborate photocompositions and to define a signature style. Fabrik: How important was it for your work to like the music of your clients and would you rather create an image based on your client’s lyrics or the melody of their songs? GW: The album cover is a visual representation of the music. It needs to connect and resonate with the intended audience, and this will always guide the stylistic approach. In terms of a concept, if there is a title, I usually start there. I also talk with the artist about their music, personal direction, and read the lyrics. When I first start a project I like to stay open to all possible elements that will spark the concept for the packaging. Personally liking the music is not as important as creating a meaningful visual. Fabrik: You’ve worked with Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. One of your clients was Michael Jackson. Could you say something about that? GW: All three of these artists are amazing talents. I was a fan of each prior to working with them, especially of the fusion projects by Herbie and Chick. The only 16

thing I would add about Michael is that I think the media was very unkind in their representation of him. He was clearly eccentric, but a true artist and perfectionist in every way. Working with all of them was a great experience. Fabrik: If I think about your images in “Improbable Realities,” I can see some similarities between your work and album cover artist Storm Thorgonson’s work, especially in your image of the men with burning ties. (Pink Floyd has an album cover with two men shaking hands with one of the men’s suit burning) Did Thorgonson have an impact on your work? GW: Storm’s work with Hipgnosis during the 70’s was very influential. Many of his album covers were for some of my favorite artists, and those images made up my “art collection” as a teenager. The blurring of the lines of the photographic medium was inspirational in terms of pointing to the unlimited narrative possibilities that could be expressed with altered or combined photographic imagery. The image of the ties on fire was actually from an international advertising campaign for Adobe to advertise Photoshop. The concept was proposed by the ad agency. I was a bit taken aback when the layout first arrived because the Pink Floyd cover for “Wish You Were Here” is so iconic. After years of being entrenched in creating album covers, I felt that any image that would appear to reference this cover would be crossing the line in terms of borrowing from a visual identity that artistically belonged to Pink Floyd. Working in advertising I found that I began to view the market a little differently. While I would never have created this image for another recording artist, I settled on the notion that it was kind of cool to pay homage, if you will, within a new context. Fabrik: Your studio team consists of Hollywood set designers, modelbuilders and CGI artists, etc. What about the influence on you of the motion picture industry? GW: Other than the work of Hipgnosis, movies were perhaps my greatest source of inspiration. As a kid, I was mesmerized when I first saw “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Kubrick had an amazing visual sense. “A Clockwork Orange” is a visual masterpiece as well. “Blade Runner” and “Brazil” were also inspiring.

There is the correlation to the story telling in film that has always had my attention as a narrative image-maker. The primary difference, of course, is that motion speeds by at 30 frames per second, whereas the story of a still is fixed in time. I love the attention to detail that is required for a single frame to resonate. It’s much less forgiving than motion. Fabrik: Mahatma Gandhi said “One can measure the greatness of a nation and its moral progress by the way it treats its animals.” In Hinduism, the cow is a sacred animal and represents all other creatures. Does your series “The Secret Life of Cows” have any political agenda? GW: The beauty of much of my commissioned work is that the images can often stand alone from the marketing purposes that set the parameters for their creation. The Bovine Superheroes and Secret Agent Cows, which represent the majority of images in the book, were created to sell fast food chicken sandwiches. The cows are protecting their species by advocating that people eat chicken instead of them. But, after you take away the marketing copy, the viewer is forced to draw their own conclusions, which will perhaps lead to examining issues bigger than “what’s for lunch?” Or not. Fabrik: Was the show “The Secret Life of Cows” at Track 16 Gallery well received? GW: Yes, beyond my wildest imagination. The day of the opening I picked up the Los Angeles Times on our driveway, and to my surprise, one of the Secret Agent Cows was on the front page. I went to the Calendar section and the show was the lead story, front page, entire top of the fold, with some very funny comments from Eric Idle. It’s estimated that there were over 1500 people at the opening. The owner of Track 16 said it was the gallery’s largest opening reception. I was blown away by the response. It was great, but certainly not what I expected. What started as a publishing offer to compile a series of cow images was quickly turning into an artistic identity.

Fabrik: TIME magazine used one of your images for the cover story “How to Eat Smarter.” You came up with the idea of showing floating ice-cream cones and a man in a suit with an umbrella holding a green apple in his hand. What are your feelings about the food industry in America? GW: The feature was about the poor eating habits of Americans. The images reflect my feelings. My idea for the cover (although, not published) was a parody of Magritte’s “Son of Man.” I recreated the painting photographically with a huge fast food hamburger replacing the apple in front of the man’s face, and with globs of secret sauce dripping on his overcoat. The supporting images for the feature were a continuation of the Magritte theme, including the raining ice cream cones. The man is protecting himself with the umbrella while offering a healthy alternative. Fabrik: Can you tell us more about your upcoming exhibit at Mr. Musichead Gallery in Hollywood? GW: I’ve always enjoyed visiting the gallery, as it is one of few authentic rock ’n’ roll art exhibitors in California. When the owner, Sam Milgrom, offered a show, I didn’t give it a second thought. This show will consist of selected conceptual album covers and portraits of musicians from over a 30-year range. Portraits include Michael Jackson, ZZ Top, KISS, Chaka Khan and Herbie Hancock. Album covers include projects for Van Halen, Black Sabbath, Rush and Missing Persons.

he Photographic Arts Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art supports LACMA’S Wallis Annenberg photography department. A relatively young organization, it was started in 2001 to help the museum develop an audience educated in photography. Over the years, it has morphed into a potent and dynamic group who loves photography and lusts after its informed acquisition. Avid collectors fill its ranks. The council also promotes a serious and intensive exploration of the medium with classes, studio visits, and lectures by power-house curators like Britt Salvesen and Edward Robinson. When it can, the group raises funds to help LACMA make acquisitions and stage shows like the New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape show. The group also helped out with some of the cost of the William Eggelston exhibition’s public lectures. The Arts Council tries to assist the artist, the gallery, the museum, and the public by green-lighting as many photographic endeavors as it can. This year, its intensely coveted annual award was given to photographer Ken Gonzales-Day, and a book will be published of his work (Summer 2011). I spoke with Gloria Huyck, current chairperson of the Photographic Arts Council. Huyck, a cineaste who wrote American Graffiti and Indiana

Jones, came late to collecting photography. I found Huyck pithy, instructive, and ebullient, communicating a lot of interesting information in a clear, compelling way. “It’s a big step for many people to think of photography as art. I’ve always been interested in photography, and as a result of the sale of my collection of East Indian paintings, I had a bankroll to collect with. I first focused on Japanese photography. The Arts Council had all of these events - lectures, studio and museum tours - and offered me an education about photographic history without having to go back to school. As chairman of the Photographic Arts Council, I want to keep on creating that experience for as many people as I can.” Gloria Huyck suddenly wondered aloud, “Is collecting a good thing or a psychological affliction? “ The desire to acquire fine art photography is a delicious malaise that seems to torment many people all over the world. There is no cure. As this strange malady develops, most of the afflicted seem to hone their skills and focus their collection. Connoisseurs of photography enjoy educating others about what they have learned about the works of art they have amassed. They delight in showing them off. And from what Gloria Huyck tells me, the Photographic Art Council is a great place to do just that – and to acquire new works, as well. The latest fundraising enterprise for the arts council is called The Limited Editions Project. Four photographers, Jo Ann Callus, Bruce Davidson, Todd Hido and David Maisel are each donating a limited edition of 15 - 16 x 20 inch prints, signed and numbered, that are available for members to purchase for $1500 a print. “Everyone should have the opportunity to live with a great piece of art. But you have to be a member, to get one of these,” Huyck told me. “Photographic Arts Council participants can be photographers, collectors, or anyone interested in any genre of photography. No other like group in the country has such a reasonable entry fee. Annual memberships start at $400, can be shared with a friend, and you both get all the other perks, too.” Fabrik would have to agree: membership does have its privileges.

ittle metal magnets adhere to a seven-foot test-strip flush against the viewing board on the back wall of The Lab. With the light adjusted just so, Frank Green pores over the tests, evaluating the work, offering up suggestions for final color and exposure corrections. Every time I come here, I feel as if I am taking a master class from a master Cibachrome printer. Cibachrome prints are highly desirable for their amazing color saturation (like no other), their vastly superior archivability (guaranteed fade-proof for at least 100 years), and their dense, rich, high gloss. They are unusually sensitive to reds, which reproduce deeply, sensually and are so glossy, one wants to lick them off the prints like lollipop candy. The print itself feels like a cross between paper and plastic. These prints are old school, made directly from a large-format transparency placed in an enlarger. Even through Cibas are highly sought-after by museums and savvy collectors, they have fallen casualty to the digital age. The Lab Ciba in Burbank is the last Cibachrome lab on the left coast – and one of the few remaining in the world. Green has made prints for Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelly, George Hurrell, Louise Lawler, and David Muench, one of the most important landscape photographers of the late twentieth century. Green’s Cibachromes hang in the

Pompidou Centre, the Chicago Art Institute, MOCA, and the San Francisco Museum of Fine Art. There are two reasons to make a Cibachrome print: either an artist or a museum wants to insure its archivability, or a super color-saturated look with intense image sharpness is desired. Artists who love Cibas for their color and archival qualities often apply matte lamination to eliminate gloss and still keep other attributes intact. The last time I called for an appointment, Green put me on hold from his darkroom saying his hands were deep in chemicals, making a Black and White contrast mask. He never came back. He called back a few hours later, apologizing sheepishly, and we set up a time for me to see his work on my latest project down at The Lab. Green synergizes optics, technology, and chemistry with an informed artistic vision. He often inspires artists to re-envision the frame. Over the years, he and I BAMBOO have produced brilliant and often PHIL TARLEY • MAY 2009 EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK, FLORIDA luminous 48 x 70 and 30 x 40 inch prints. His lab is like no other I have found, in or out of Los Angeles. I ask him what the future is for Cibachrome. How long can he hold up the fort? You know, the last-lab stuff? Green tells me that even though he sometimes feels like an Andy Rooney, “Cibachrome is not a dinosaur. Artists are still discovering what a great medium it is. I just blew up a shot from a Blackberry. I took the phone shot, created an interface analog film transparency, and blew it up to a 50 x 60 inch print. Then I face-mounted it to plexiglass and it knocks you on your ass. It’s not some crappy Epson poster, it’s a full blown piece of art. The most common camera these days is the iPhone, not exactly Cartier Bresson's tool of choice. But Cibachrome is the last word. It’s the best. It’s miracle lives on.”

Bill Cunningham


“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The “Bill” in question is New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham, who is 80+. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural documentarian has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society soirees for the Times Style Section in his columns, “On the Street” and “Evening Hour.” There he catalogues uptown New York fixtures like Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, and David Rockerfeller — who all appear in the movie, obviously out their deep fondness for Bill. This off-beat minigem of a movie mixes uptown hauteur with a slew of Downtown fashion eccentrics, Club Kids, and everyone in between. 46

Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time and place. His sixty years of street photography give the movie a fascinating anthropological context. Ultimately, Bill Cunningham New York is character study of a dedicated artist working in the fashion world that he loves but personally eschews. His wealth is his own humanity, mad preoccupation and an unassuming grace soon under fire. Bill and a few other octenagarian photographers who have been living in artist apartments in Carnegie Hall are fighting relocation from the only homes they have known during most of their working lives. But that is only one story arc this documentary takes on. The film is an affectionate portrait of a wonderfully strange character living through his camera, snapping photos nonstop, “letting the streets speak,” to him. This photographic dialogue between a man, his camera, and sixty years of shooting the fashionoids of Manhattan and Paris is hauntingly sweet – where’s my insulin - somewhat daffy, and a tad perverse. Less participant than observer, Cunningham cares not for food, sex, drink, or love. His apartment has no bathroom or kitchen, only file cabinets for his negatives. The man and the movie rides along the streets of New York on a fragile bicycle going from one posh venue to the next, parsing out his days and

his NY Times photo columns with the elements of street style and nightlife fashion. He declines to wear any of the sartorial splendor of those he shoots. He will not take even a glass of water at any of the events he chronicles. He often refuses a paycheck, so to better control his images. When he feels uncomfortable, he reaches for his camera and says, “Let’s get snappin’ and crackin’.” Obviously there is a lush layer of Asperger’s Syndrome to this man’s creative psyche. But Bill Cunningham is an original. Even though he wears street sweeper clothing, he manages to make his way through the pages of many top fashion publications. He lives through his camera, and so he

affects the lives and creative aspirations of many of the glitterati all around him. The movie takes us on to Paris where Cunningham is made a Chevalier de France, receiving his medal at a big gala. Dressed in his economical working clothes, Bill shoots away at his own fete as if to signal that the only way this man can go through life is to, “keep snappin’.” He is happily caught up in a magnificent obsession. He uses the camera as a way to distance earthly sensations from his life, so that he can chronicle the sensuality and fashions of those caught up in them. And so, he holds a mirror up for all of us to see, as he sees, who we are, and how we want to be perceived. Released by Zeitgeist Films. Written and Directed by Richard Press.

Feminizing the Lens:


In the fame-obsessed city of Los Angeles, with so many women vying to be seen, these seers prefer to see. Throughout photography’s brief history, women have enlarged the scope of the medium by extricating images from the camera that nurture many conflicting desires of the unconscious mind, transport beyond the confines of the mundane, and bring a vulnerable emotionality to the subject. Fabrik Magazine recognizes five photographers based in Los Angeles for their ability to illuminate and feminize the lens. 52

ALEX HEDISON It was the alluring design of a Contax T2 with the retracting Zeiss lens that wooed actress Alex Hedison to integrate artistry behind the camera as well. The fine art photography community confirmed her choice. In 2002, Rose Gallery of Santa Monica gave Hedison her first solo show exhibiting the series, “Elements,” in which she portrays dream-like landscapes. As a way to conjure and motivate imagination, Hedison prefers straight photography without post-production manipulation. She explains her choice, “There's something about the frame of a photo and composing within that frame that I love. I'm not a big fan of cropping and changing the composition once I shoot it. It pushes me to continue to express myself in a time where so much has changed about the medium itself.” Taking this technical discipline to a new level by using a large format camera, she captured the North American rainforest with piercingly vivid detail in the “ITHAKA” series. “ITHAKA” has exhibited internationally and is ironically not about trees but a metaphor for one’s process of discovery. Currently, Hedison is working on a series centered in Malibu examining, in her words, the ‘architecture of memory.’ More information and portfolio can be found at www.hedison.com.

SHARON JOHNSON-TENNANT Leaving the fashion world behind and following her true passion of photography has led Sharon Johnson-Tennant to exotic destinations like Papua New Guinea, Borneo, India, and Africa to capture the simplicity and dignity of humanity that most would overlook. Her latest work, which spans over five years, tells a haunting story of what the residents of the lower ninth ward of New Orleans left behind in exchange for survival. Whether abroad or in her backyard, she pursues balance and elegance in ordinary moments of life. Johnson-Tennant explains her approach, “I see sensuality in the details, the light, the shadows, and the fabrics and textures around me. I think and shoot in color - this, to me, shows the reality of daily life in its truest form - fully saturated, vibrant and alive.” Her photos have been recognized in publicaWeb fabrikmagazine.com

tions such as National Geographic Traveller and PDN Magazine. Her next gallery show is at the Robert Berman Gallery, Bergamot Station in November 2011. More information and portfolio can be found at www.sjtdesigns.net.




In her relatively short four-year career, Tasya van Ree’s images, in both photography and video, are exploding on the LA art scene. Her photographs channel intelligent sexuality by utilizing models possessing non-traditional beauty in corsets and stockings juxtaposed with studded leather jackets and fedora hats. Modern femininity, where a woman is both powerful and alluring at the same instant, dominants van Ree’s black and white imagery. Fans of Helmut Newton and filmmaker Tinto Brass would not be disappointed by van Ree’s sublimation of the female form. And it certainly seems current culture is endorsing van Ree’s perspective as well. She is working on two photography books, a t-shirt line called “Saints vs. Sinners,” an art installation for designer Tory Burch, an exhibition during MOPLA with the Lucie Foundation and a bevy of celebrity art commissions. More information and portfolio can be found at www.tasyavanree.com.

MARJORIE SALVATERRA Inspiration comes from diverse origins. In Marjorie Salvaterra’s case, she made the transition from acting to photography after playing the lead in Herb Ritts’ film “The Faculty Lounge.” Drawing from her theatrical background, her black and white photographs strikingly illuminate raw human emotion and form. Virginia Heckart, Associate Curator of Photography at The Getty Center, describes Salvaterra’s images and their dramatic impact as “a fine line between sanity and insanity.” Understanding the psyche plunges her into exploring the dark, fragile and sometimes obscene nature of the human spirit. Salvaterra says, “Some believe people are either born sane or insane. Others believe we are all born perfect and it's the things that happen in our lives that damage us. I tend to believe the latter. In each portrait, I am looking for that line in each person: the part of our58

LACEY TERRELL Circuses and film sets are synonymous in Lacey Terrell’s world. Terrell has serious authority to make this comparison as her “THE PASSING RING” series documents the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus over fourteen years which led her to working as a still photographer on film sets since 1999. She speaks about her attraction to both environments. “Both have disparate people coming together to put on a “show” and I instantly felt comfortable in this gypsy-like environment.” Following the edict of circumstance, Terrell has transformed obtuse moments on a film set into tender vignettes in her most recent series, “offSET.” “offSET” has garnered Terrell much recognition. It was awarded Best in Show in Lens 2011, selected by Natasha Egan of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and also 1st Prize in the Photo Review 2010 Competition. She is currently working on a book commencing her epic chronicle of the “THE PASSING RING” series. More information and portfolio can be found at www.laceyterrell.com.

PUBLISHED Processing Art into Books




Labs has been providing services to the world’s top photographers for thirty years. Almost every serious photographer in L.A. has used them. When film was king and the pros all shot slides, A&I handled transparencies with the most amazing custom services in town. Not too long ago the lab had three centers: their present location on Highland, a 24 hour drop-off a few blocks away, and a full-service shop in Venice out by the beach. Now it has one, a big powerhouse of a laboratory. The digital age changed the world and it changed photography, too. But photography is not down and out. As the 21st century takes hold, the fruits of nouveau technologies have borne new printmaking methods. Embracing these innovations, A&I has helped pioneer the printing of museum-quality pigment prints with processes capable of rendering hues never quite seen before. A&I’s latest offering is an entire department totally dedicated to printing and publishing high-end photographic art books –all done on demand. That means an artist or gallery can print a book in a signed, limited edition and order copies as the edition sells out. While on demand printing is nothing new, it is noteworthy that A&I, famous for the quality of their prints, now offers this art product. Rex Weiner, a veteran editor, publisher, and journalist, heads their art book division. “We can now offer artists and anyone wishing to create a photo book the guidance they need to give their books a more professional look- and we help them with creative strategies to get their books into the hands of an audience,” Rex told me. “By adding an editorial touch, from the book’s initial concept to design, copy editing, and proof-reading, we take self-publishing to a new standard that we like to call, ‘indie-publishing.’” “Rex understands how traditional book publishing has been transformed by technology. That gives A&I a real advantage. It lets us provide artists beautifully printed books and a potent way to market them,” said A&I co-owner Baret Lepejian. While staying true to its photographic roots, A&I seems poised on informing the digital future with the photographic vision of its past. The books are made on an assortment of fine art Indigo and Scitex printers. A&I’S giant Lambda can make prints on any kind of photographic paper, leather, metal, or glass. Their new department has published books for The L.A. Times, The Lucie Foundation, and Jeff Sheng’s popular Don’t Ask Don’t Tell book. A&I still processes film. And they still make some of the best and biggest photographic prints in town. They have printed for David LaChapelle, Maya Mercer, Helmut Newton, and Mario Testino. Well – I guess that they can make my book here, too. Web fabrikmagazine.com

JORDI ALCARAZ extends a specifically Catalan tradition of modernism that conflates material gravity with an almost notational gesture. Antoní Tapiès’ oeuvre most readily represents this tradition (having in effect set it in motion), but half a century later it still ripples through artistic practice in Spain’s northeast corner. Alcaraz sustains the tradition’s existential overtones, felt especially in his tendency to open, near-minimal composition, but he gives it added resonance and even mystery by working rarely with pigment, preferring instead to mold plaster, wood, graphite and wire in and around frequently distorted Plexiglas surfaces. Where paint does appear, it seems obdurate and industrial, like tar – grace(less) notes against the voluptuous curves of the Plexi and elegant linear stretches borne by the otherwise transparent material. Books often JORDI ALCARAZ (B. 1963) • AGAFAR UN DIBUIX AL VOL, 2010 TO CATCH A DRAWING MID-AIR WIRE, PLEXIGLASS, WOOD appear as objects encased in the 13 3/4 X 16 1/2 X 7 1/8 INCHES Plexi, like f lies in amber, or behind it in shallow boxes. These “silenced” tomes, and the nervous, darting lines around them that refuse to coalesce into writing, together evince a muffled voice, a muted, inchoate, pre-literate cri bespeaking some long-buried tragedy. One can speculate on what urgent, recurrent metaphor Alcaraz means to convey; the most apparent, involving the human atrocities and cultural suppression of the Franco years, are now past. They are a recent memory, one that Catalans, in particular, are not ready to give up; but you don’t get the feeling Alcaraz is protesting the affronts that once afflicted his people so much as drawing upon a lingering sense of mortality and unjust imbalance – and infusing that sense with equal parts wit and poignancy by seeming to charm diverse substances into poetically charged images.

SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED collates an extremely diverse roster of modern and contemporary artists who were and are prone to unorthodox and profligate exploitation of all sorts of stuff and all sorts of things. In other words, despite the “Assemblage & Collage” subtitle, this isn’t your usual pasted-papersand-nailed-together-objects show. The emphasis is on “assembly,” and Jose Luis Cuevas’ painting on tiles can claim as secure a place here as can Edward Kienholz’s mid-50s wood construction, Romare Bearden’s colored collages of people of color, or the intimate, almost diaristic arrangements of Hannelore Baron, Betye Saar, and George Nama. On one level, “Some Assembly Required” is a compendium of techniques; all that need augment a would-be assemblagist’s careful study of these works is an annotation of what adhesives were used. On another, of course, it is an affirmation of the “collage aesthetic” that has driven the sensibility of the modern era. But the show, filled with surprises and revivals, provides its biggest jolts not as a whole, but as a sum of parts. Hans Burkhardt’s GORDON WAGNER (1915-1987) • CONSTRUCTION, 1950 AND MIXED MEDIA CONSTRUCTION CONTAINING skull-bedecked painting is always WOOD COLLECTED ITEMS • 19 X 45 X 11 1/2 INCHES good for introducing a mordant reflection on war and death, but dreamy, fanciful early collages by Joseph Cornell provide the opposite sensation. The gnarled objects of Conrad Marca-Relli (too little seen on the West Coast) rhyme unexpectedly with Clare Falkenstein’s bristly steel bush engulfing a glass heart – and (speaking of Cornell) with her early box assemblage. Mark Tobey’s late collages are totally unanticipated, as is Mathias Goeritz’s mini-metal man; less so, but still delightful, are items by Bruce Conner, George Herms, Tony Berlant, and other postwar California assembleurs.

In Skate Park, Tress goes beyond typical sport photography, contemplating each skater’s relationship to the larger void of the bowl, half-pipe, or park. Here, cinematic sequences capture their action and interaction. The photographs give as much attention to the architecture of the parks as they do the fleeting bodies that shuttle across them.






Kevin Rolly — or Kevissimo as he is known to his friends — took his first photo out of love for an older woman. She was 11… he was 8. They were vacationing together, and he was smitten. She was “the sun and the moon” to him, and when she emerged from the water, and wrapped a towel around herself, her face compelled him to grab his father’s new Nikon F and race to photograph her before she moved. Luckily, she held the position while he took his first photograph ever. He says “That 125th of a second changed my life. In a sense, I’ve been taking that same shot ever since.” 70

In 1994, Kevin began searching for a new look to his fine art photographs. He couldn’t find it in the darkroom, or in lighting techniques, so he began to experiment with mixed media. One day, remembering the scratch drawings he had enjoyed as child, he poured black oil paint all over one of his photos, then began wiping some of it off. That day, his signature technique was born, and he created his first “oilgraph.” The “oilgraph” works are complex and expensive to create, as this oldschool film photographer insists that every print be on archival silver gelatin paper. He then painstakingly trims and silhouettes the figures, mounting the photographs to large wooden panels with archival glues, sometimes adds textures, mixed media, then paints and varnishes each piece. They are heavy large works, serious and beautiful, each one unique. The sizes vary, but few are small. "The Last Supper" is an epic piece, at 6’ x 12’, weighing in at about 400 pounds. A few years later, on a dare, Kevin made a work live – The Crucifixion. This first time, something happened – his brain turned off, he began working instinctually, spontaneously, experimenting, becoming the channel for the piece. “That,” he says, “is when the magic showed up. When I finished about 40 minutes later, I finally looked up, and expected to see people asleep. What I saw were a handful of people in tears, and I realized, maybe there was more to this than I thought.” Although Kevin has traveled and photographed some memorable places, like Paris and Milan, creating some of his best-selling images, it is his religious works that he is most known for. In 2003, he was commissioned to create one of the Stations of the Cross for an exhibit at Fuller Seminary. He decided to do Station 10 – The Stripping of Christ – shooting it as a nude, standing in the brief moment of dignity just before the horrific indignity that was coming. He said to do it any other way would have been cowardly. When he went to the exhibit where the works were being featured, he imagined it might be stored in the broom closet. In fact, it was the only piece they chose to hang in their chapel. Following a show at the Pasadena Museum of California Art about the journey of longing and loss, he was asked by a local curator to speak at the Worship Arts Liturgy and Preaching conference. It was then he decided to complete the set, saving the 15th station for a live performance. Web fabrikmagazine.com

He says the biblical series is very personal and faith -based for him, about love and sacrifice, and putting aside one’s own good for the other. He explains, “I felt it was a calling.” His next project, however, is an even longer journey, and is still incomplete after 4 years or work. His topic - The Complete Book of Judges, from the Old Testament. This body of work will illustrate about 20 different stories and many individuals, eventually creating close to 70 pieces. Meticulous about casting the featured characters, Kevin also creates the costumes and the props, down to the swords and weapons they often carry in the depictions of battle. Wanting everything to look authentic, true to the period, like actual theater, he is obsessive about detail, and insists that all characters read their bible story before the shoot begins. "I have always been interested in the hidden being revealed, both in people’s personal journeys and in my own. Everyone has a story. What I concern myself with is telling those stories with honesty and dignity. In each of us there is both darkness and light. To tell our stories without one or the other is to be disingenuous to our nature. In the end, however, it is the light that breaks through the darkness that I search for the most. Yet, the darkness still needs to be present. It reveals the need of the light while we are still in this painful theatre of our humanity. “For me, photography and painting is listening. If I do my job then the story is written in the image and ultimately tells everyone’s story. The process of revealing the image through the oil only extends the journey of the light breaking through. It illuminates what I believe is the world both seen and unseen. In the performances where the work is created in front of an audience, it simply gives the audience the opportunity to experience that journey at the same time I am. Each is an act of faith." But in the end, he says, “All I really want to do is direct. ” Kevin Rolly lives and works at the Brewery Artist Colony at Theory Labs, 624 Moulton Ave, near downtown Los Angeles. You can meet him and see his work at the Spring Brewery Art Walk on April 16 & 17 from 11AM -6PM. More information on Kevin Rolly can be found at www.kevissimo.com.

s there a difference between art and design? Art has traditionally been viewed as a non-functional accessory and design distinguishes itself ardently from art in its functionality and purpose. Donald Judd confirmed this notion, “Design has to work, art does not.” Yet, isn’t there artistry in design? Hasn’t art always possessed a function? At a time when the traditional distinctions of art and design are being widely debated and often blurred, the groundbreaking concept of Mark Bittoni and Leonardo Ledesma highlights the ability for art and design to not only coexist but also co-create in their soon-to-launch fine art and design gallery. “Everything is art!” exclaimed Marcel Duchamp when he exhibited his controversial urinal. And the collective vision of Bittoni’s design firm and Ledesma’s art gallery seems to be confirming this declaration. Bittoni explains his motivation for his partnership with Ledesma’s Art Seen gallery, “The merging of the two entities seems like a natural fit. I have been interested in looking at how art and design can converge in order to generate new directions within my own practice. Typically, these two disciplines seem mutually exclusive; however, both offer interesting ways of enhancing space and environment.” Just as Bittoni inherently believes design is both an artistic and a social endeavor, Ledesma’s degree in architecture reinforced his affinity for the design 78

process. According to both entrepreneurs, it was a natural evolution of incorporating relevant design and contemporary art under one roof. In 2009, Bittoni opened a design-oriented boutique and in his opinion, Art Seen is the unifying component in the retail aspect and design practice. “Working closely with architects, interior designers and other design professionals has given me valuable insight into creating distinct environments, especially through the use of art. Teaming up with Bittoni is going to create new and exciting opportunities for us both artistically and professionally” says Ledesma of his ease in bridging the design and art chasm. Just as legendary artists and designers like Charlotte Perriand, James Turrell, Frank Lloyd Wright, Philippe Starck and Jorge Pardo have grappled to define the continuum between art and design… so shall Bittoni and Ledesma. Their fine art and design gallery debuts this month with a launch party March 31, 2011, 7-11 pm. Web fabrikmagazine.com

MUSEUM VIEWS FOWLER MUSEUM OF UCLA “His Masters’ Tools: Recent Work by Allan deSouza” THROUGH MAY 29 “Central Nigeria Unmasked: Arts of the Benue River Valley” THROUGH JULY 24 The always-fascinating Fowler Museum features two distinctly different but equally engaging exhibitions, one a critique of colonialism through art and the other a revelation of art produced under mostly non-colonial circumstances. In “His Masters’ Tools,” Nairobi-born, San Francisco-based conceptualist Allan deSouza looks through a number of artistic lenses at the “racial underpinnings of colonial power,” deconstructing the pretenses of modern culture partly by reflecting on his own past – selections from earlier series look at the presence of Western visitors in his native Kenya and even at his own life there – and partly by straining Western artwork through an Afro-Asian sieve. In the “Rdctns” series deSouza re-examines the “primitivism” of Paul Gauguin and Henri Rousseau, while in “The Third Eye” modern self-portraiture, from Picasso to Warhol, gets a similarly close reading. Meanwhile, “Central Nigeria Unmasked” looks at a West African culture whose very geography – too far south for the Arabs to document, too far south for the Europeans – allowed them to develop largely beyond the examination and influence of outsiders. Benue Valley artifacture will thus be a “discovery” for anyone generally familiar with West African arts and peoples; but even for those closely versed in indigenous West African art, or conversely ignorant of but taken with African art overall, the masks, shrine sculptures, ceramic and metal objects of the Benue Valley – supported with photographic and filmic documentation of daily life and rituals – will prove impressive, even riveting.

ARMORY CENTER FOR THE ARTS “Lifelines: A Retrospective Exhibition of Performance, Installation, Sculpture, Painting and Drawing by John M. White” THROUGH JUNE 5 Nobody better exemplifies the expansive, energetic eclecticism of his generation of southern California – or, indeed, American – artists than does John White. Over the course of his career, spanning nearly a half century, White has produced paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, installations, performances, scores for the performances, books, and all manner of objects. Blessed with a spontaneous and invariably assured graphic sense and sure, fluid hand, White is also a master, if unorthodox, storyteller, equally capable of weaving a yarn or even inventing a circumstance in words, in pictures, and in symbols. The fascinating thing about White’s oeuvre is his insistence on doing as much as he can at the same time – telling stories and inventing them, drawing and painting, perfoming inside installations (or even notations), following complex philosophical propositions and playing games, and so forth. A White show is always a wild ride, not least because you’re never sure in which direction you’re going to journey, so a retrospective of this breadth promises to be no less than a journey through one man’s galaxy. White has long had a devoted following, especially but not solely in Los Angeles (including this writer, who contributed to this show’s catalogue); but after slowly, unjustly sinking into near-oblivion over the past three decades, this survey – and his inclusion in several of the upcoming Pacific Standard Time show next fall and winter – marks White’s return to the limelight. Better late than never… For more information, please visit their website at: http://www.armoryarts.org

FREDERICK R. WEISMAN MUSEUM AT PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY “Roy Lichtenstein: In Process” THROUGH APRIL 3 While his 1960s comic-strip paintings, signature artifacts of Pop, seem ripped straight from the funny papers, Roy Lichtenstein was always adjusting and modifying his appropriations and satires, to maximize both iconographic and aesthetic impact. By the 1970s, his Pop point made, Lichtenstein was concentrating on such personalized alteration, and his art from then until his death in 1997 was as much about what he did with an image as about the image itself. “In Process”

Twitter twitter.com/fabrikmag


looks at Lichtenstein’s careful, even dogged, methods of transforming things – and especially pictures of things – out in the real world into his own kind of pictures of pictures of things. In the case of his quotations from other artists, in fact, Lichtenstein was even creating pictures of pictures of pictures of things – and that was his whole idea, to look at how our visual awareness is so thoroughly mediated that it seems to be reflection upon reflection, reproduction upon reproduction. By inserting himself into this hall of mirrors, Lichtenstein implied that, with sufficient force, intellect, and formal integrity, one could at least begin to rise above this refracted process – interpretation upon interpretation. “In Process” shows how Lichtenstein embraced, albeit critically, our universe of mediation, generating myriad studies, drawings, manipulations of various sources until he had completely changed and claimed their pictorial essence. For more information, please visit their website at: http://arts.pepperdine.edu/museum/

LOS ANGELES MUNICIPAL ART GALLERY AT BARNSDALL ART PARK “Framing Abstraction: Mark, Symbol, Signifier” THROUGH APRIL 24 Hardly an exhaustive survey of contemporary abstract painting, “Framing Abstraction” still honors the tradition of abstraction – officially a century old as of last year – with a substantive and, more importantly, highly varied selection of abstractionists, all but one based in or historically connected to California. That one exception, Catalonia’s Jordi Alcaraz [see review of his one-man show elsewhere in this issue], is inexplicable – except in terms of expressive depth and formal profundity, qualities maintained throughout. The mix is otherwise eclectic, ranging from northern California to south, from geometric abstraction to gestural, from inferential forms to pure non-objectivity, from emphasis on material to emphasis on color, and even from painting itself to work on paper, quasi-sculptural structures, and projected imagery. Again, the unifying factor here is the substance of the artistic thinking and the striking results: every object in this show is handsome, intriguing, logical, and at least slightly mysterious. If these artworks were people, this would be one of the best parties ever. Besides Alcaraz, the participants are southern Californians Lita Albuquerque, Hans Burkhardt, Meg Cranston, Claire Cregan, James Hayward, Charles Christopher Hill, and Manfred Müller, and northerners Gary Edward Blum, Mark Harrington, Kevan Jenson, and Naomie Kremer. One other notable factoid: at least a third of the participants are foreign-born. For more information, please visit their websites at http://www.barnsdallartpark.com
