HISTORICAL HUMANISM— THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF ANTHONY FRIEDKIN — WORDS PHIL TARLEY IMAGES COURTESY OF ANTHONY FRIEDKIN & STEPHEN COHEN GALLERY


THROUGH THE LENS

I FIRST SAW ANTHONY FRIEDKIN’S WORK AT THE STEPHEN COHEN GALLERY ON BEVERLY BOULEVARD ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO. A LARGE BLACK AND WHITE FIBER PRINT OF FOUR OVERLY MUSCLED PRISONERS WHO WERE IN FULL-BODY JACKETS OF GANGBANGING TATTOOS. THE FOUR MEN STOOD SHIRTLESS, IN THE EXERCISE YARD AT FOLSOM PRISON, THEIR ARMS WRAPPED AROUND ONE ANOTHER, SKIN TO SKIN. THE IMAGE CONVEYED A NAKED INTIMACY THAT WAS INTENSELY COMPELLING AND IT HAD LAYERS OF PROFOUND EMOTIONAL SUBTEXT THAT COMMUNICATED THE SADNESS AND PAIN THEY SHARED IN THEIR INCARCERATION, THE QUIESCENT VIOLENCE OF THEIR PERSONAS, AND THEIR HOMEBOY PRIDE. IT ALSO TENDERLY EVOKED THE PHYSICAL LOVE THEY FELT FOR EACH OTHER. IT WAS QUITE AN IMAGE. I STARTED TO SEE FRIEDKIN’S WORK MARKING A SENSORIAL RECORD OF THE MANY CULTURALLY DISENFRANCHISED SUBCULTURES THAT HE HAS PHOTOGRAPHED OVER THE LAST THIRTY YEARS. HIS WORK, WHAT I CALL HISTORICAL HUMANISM, CHARTS A SINGULAR EMOTIONAL THROUGH LINE OF THE PEOPLE WHO INHABIT THESE SUBCULTURES. THE GETTY HAS COLLECTED FORTY OF HIS PRINTS. THE DE YOUNG MUSEUM IN SAN FRANCISCO HAS ALSO ACQUIRED A BODY OF FRIEDKIN'S WORK. HE IS THE ONLY ARTIST WHO IS NOT GAY SHOWING IN 'QUEER ART AND CULTURE IN LOS ANGELES, 1945-1980,' THE ONE NATIONAL GAY AND LESBIAN ARCHIVES' PACIFIC STANDARD TIME SHOW. A CALIFORNIA ORIGINAL, FRIEDKIN WITNESSES OUR HISTORY WITH STYLE, EMBODYING A DEEP RESPECT AND UNDERSTANDING OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE DEMIMONDE. THE SUBJECTS OF HIS PORTRAITS ARE RENDERED WITH EMOTION, DIGNITY AND A FOND ADMIRATION OF THEIR HUMANITY. FREIDKIN'S ACTORS MURAL IS THE COVER SHOT OF THIS MONTH'S FABRIK MAGAZINE. WOMAN BY THE POOL, PHOTOGRAPHED BY FRIEDKIN AT THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL IN 1975, IS THE LOGO IMAGE FOR STEPHEN COHEN'S UPCOMING PHOTOLA FAIR IN SANTA MONICA. THE IMAGES APPEARING WITHIN THE FOLLOWING PAGES 'CELEBRATE PERCEPTION' AND DEPICT THE MANY HIDDEN LAYERS OF REALITY CAPTURED BY THIS CELEBRATED PHOTOGRAPHER.

IN RECOGNITION OF AN LA-CENTRIC ART MARKET TREND — WORDS NICHOLAS FORREST IMAGES COURTESY CHRISTIES & LOS ANGELES MODERN AUCTIONS

O

ver the past few decades, Los Angeles has played host to more than its fair share of artists whose work did not conform to the fashions and trends of the day. It could be said that LA became, and still is, a haven for artists

whose desire to stay true to their creative spirit and artistic philosophy outweighs the desire for fame and fortune. But there is more to this story than a common yearning for freedom of expression. A careful examination of the work produced by LA based artists both past and present reveals a particularly interesting trend that has emerged as a driving force in the market for works by LA based artists. Although the LA art scene has undoubtedly been responsible for the production of a diverse variety of works in a wide range of styles and genres, many of the artists responsible for the direction of the LA art scene exhibit a common approach to their work. This approach can be defined as a rejection of the spontaneous artistic act and the organic form in favour of a more calculated, craft-like approach executed with mathematical precision and a sort of geometric purity. 28

ART MARKET

Most active between the 1960s and 1990s, the clinical purists who were at the forefront of this approach were clearly ahead of their time, which undoubtedly affected the marketability of their work.

Aided somewhat by the blurring of boundaries

between art, design and media, the work of these artists is beginning to receive the recognition that it deserves. One of the strongest signs of support for the LA based artists who chose a more calculated, craft-like approach to their work came during the Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) December 11, 2011 ‘Important Modern Art & Design’ sale. One of the most exciting results was the new auction record for Frederick Hammersley, whose clean and mathematical approach to abstraction, characterised by geometric blocks of colour, produced one of the top prices of the auction with a final selling price of $35,000. Hammersley made his big debut during the Four Abstract Classicists exhibition held at The L.A. County Museum of History, Science and Art in 1959 yet has only recently begun to receive the sort of market recognition that he deserves.

'CASE STUDY HOUSE #22' BY JULIUS SHULMAN (LOS ANGELES MODERN AUCTIONS)


ART MARKET

Renowned LA based architecture photographer Julius Shulman, who passed away in 2009, is best known for his carefully composed photos of modernist buildings. Estimated by LAMA to sell for between $3,000-$5,000, Shulman’s Case Study House #22, a photo of a house that became one of the artist’s most iconic subjects, went well past the top estimate for a final price of $9,500. Also included in the LAMA auction were a number of works by the LA artist Peter Shire, the most successful of which was a pair of architectural side tables produced in 1987 that straddle the borders between craft, fine art, and industrial design. The tables, each made of wood and decorated with colourful laminated surfaces, produced a winning bid of $4,750.

A PAIR OF SIDE TABLES BY PETER SHIRE (LOS ANGELES MODERN AUCTIONS)

The precision with which husband and wife team Otto and Gertrud Natzler, both long time residents of Los Angeles, produced their delicate ceramic bowls and vases, reflects an almost obsessive quest for perfection that resulted in Otto Natzler inventing over 2000 glazes and firing techniques to complement the skilfully created, precisely proportioned forms created by his partner Gertrud.

ART MARKET

'MONUMENTAL VASE' BY GERTRUD AND OTTO NATZLER (LOS ANGELES MODERN AUCTIONS)

LAMA set three new auction records for Natzler ceramics during their December 11 auction with the final record going to the artists’ 1957 Monumental vase, which fetched $93,750. LAMA’s October 9, 2011 sale of ‘The Collection of Richard Dorso’ again featured the work of a number of LA artists who exhibit a more calculated approach to their work. The Dorso sale set a new record for LA artist De Wain Valentine - an artist currently participating in the Pacific Standard Time exhibition at The Getty Center — who was, according to the Getty: an early pioneer of using industrial plastics and resin to produce monumental sculptures that reflect and distort the light and space that surround them. His contribution to the plastics industry made him stand out from his contemporaries working in these materials: Valentine developed a modified polyester resin so that he could cast colossal objects in a single pour, the material being sold as Valentine MasKast resin. 32

ART MARKET

'CIRCLE' BY DE WAIN VALENTINE (LOS ANGELES MODERN AUCTIONS)

Valentine’s pure and clean polyester resin Circle achieved a final price of $32,500 against an estimate of $3,000-$5,000. A new auction record was also achieved for Roland Reiss - another LA artist participating in the Pacific Standard Time exhibition series. Reiss’s The dancing lessons: The reconciliation of yes and no, a meticulously crafted sculpture of a miniaturised domestic interior measuring 35.6 x 61.6 x 61.6 cm, sold for $15,000 against an estimate of $4,000-$6,000. Christie’s Evening Sale of Works from the collection of Peter Norton, a Los Angeles based software entrepreneur and art collector, saw new auction records for another two relevant LA artists. The top price of the sale went to a life-size sculptural installation of LA artist Paul McCarthy’s reinvention of the Mr. Potato Head toy titled Tomato Head (Green) (1994). The precise and clinically crafted sculpture differs from the Mr. Potato Head toy in that it is has a Tomato head as well as holes in its groin and anus in which a range of appendages ,which are also supplied by McCarthy, can be inserted. According to Christie’s, “McCarthy creates a life-size cartoon-like figure that explores the relationship between modern culture, consumerism, and innocence” in which “characters are subtly changed or adulterated

to produce works that become unsettling and unnerving.” A bidding battle led to Tomato Head (Green) exceeding the $1,000,000-$1,500,000 estimate for a fantastic final price of $4,562,500 which was a new auction record for McCarthy. Charles Ray, once described by Roberta Smith as “a craft-conscious Conceptual joker,” achieved the third highest price of the Christie’s sale with one of his characteristically sparse and pure table sculptures. Made almost entirely of completely transparent Plexiglas except for the thin steel frame, Ray’s Table (1990) plays with the viewer’s perception of depth and space. Estimated to fetch $800,000-$1,200,000, Ray’s Table sold for a stellar $3,106,500 — a new auction record for the artist. Even though the artists mentioned above cannot be linked by means of any official movement or cause, the similarities between certain attributes and characteristics evident in the work of all of these artists is difficult to ignore. Because some of the above artists have exhibited a career-long dedication to a more calculated, clinical and craft-like approach to their work, whereas others only experimented with such a philosophy for a short period of time, the task of reconciling the connection between these artists is made all the more difficult. At the end of the day, however, what does exist is an undoubtedly strong trend towards the work of a particular type of artist that has developed over the past couple of years, has manifested itself during recent major art auctions, and can be summarised as: a considerable increase in the desirability and recognition of the work of a number of LA artists, both living and deceased, who, at one time or another during their career, adopted an approach to their work that can be defined as a rejection of the spontaneous artistic act and the organic form in favour of a more calculated, craft-like approach executed with a discernible level of mathematical precision and clinical purity.

become its monthly conventions, its social as well as economic nerve centers. With the globalization of art market and art scene, art fairs provide hands-on

contact with artwork and art person alike, the kind of face-to-face experience with goods and handlers the Internet, for all its vast reach, cannot provide. (Sure, you can buy art online, but when you’re buying a commodity for its uniqueness, and its physical condition is central to its worth, you put yourself at risk by shopping virtually.) There are now art fairs year round, and each art center has its own season. It’s a tribute to Los Angeles’ rapid emergence as an international art capital that it now enjoys two seasons. Spurred by the Getty’s expansive Pacific Standard Time initiative last September, the beginning of fall became LA’s second art-fair time (including San Diego’s Labor Day-weekend fair), and it seems as if that’s going to stick. Meanwhile, the dead of winter remains the primary moment for art-fair madness in southern California. Once upon a time, our time to shine was early-to-mid December, but when

Miami commandeered that slot, we moved to January. And it’s working out pretty well, recession be damned. This year, our fair city’s fair season starts as soon as January gets into double digits, and stretches into February. PhotoLA (www.photola.com), at age 21, Los Angeles’ oldest surviving fair, debuts the evening of the 12th (opening to the public on Friday the 13th…!) and lasts through Monday the 16th. Upwards of 40 commercial exhibitors from around the country and several foreign climes, from Denmark to South Africa, hang their pix in Santa Monica’s intimate but bustling Civic Auditorium, proffering images (and objects) as exotic as the other side of the world and as familiar as a freeway. The secret to PhotoLA’s endurance is in great part LA’s long, lasting love affair with the camera; other art centers now have their own photo fairs, but usually as satellites during their own cluster-fairs, while PhotoLA stands alone. Well, almost: the sixteen-gallery-strong Classic Photographs Los Angeles (www.classicphotographsla.com), featuring exclusively pre-contemporary photography, takes place on that Saturday and Sunday in Culver City’s Helms Bakery Building.

SPOTLIGHT

The following week witnesses the height of the “season” in LA, with three fairs jostling for attention. Actually, the coincidence of three small-to-medium-size fairs is good for all three, as it attracts art-visitors to town and allows them enough time and space to visit everything – even though one fair is in Santa Monica while the other two are downtown. Relief is relative, however: complementing the fairs, of course, are LA’s myriad other art shows – including those constituting both the first and second phases of Pacific Standard Time. Notably, PST’s eleven-day performance and public art festival gets going not just alongside all this, but in conjunction with Art LA Contemporary (www.artlosangelesfair.com), the ‘hip’ fair that opens Thursday the 19th with a reconstruction of “Disappearing Environments,” a 1968 spectacle by Judy Chicago, Lloyd Hamrol, and Eric Orr.

Continuing Friday through Sunday at the Santa Monica Airport’s capacious Barker Hangar, Art LA Contemporary hosts over 60 galleries coming from Melbourne to Malmö, Madrid to, yes, Miami, to show us what’s cutting-edge this year (or month). The gallery roster in fact looks more varied than ever, promising to mirror contemporary art’s own fractured, unpredictable state.

The LA Art Show (www.laartshow.com) has itself fractured, into three subfairs featuring the disparate facets for which the 16-year-old fair had become known. Fortunately, the three fairlets remain under a single roof, the West Hall of the big ol’ LA Convention Center downtown, and one ticket gets you into all three. The LA Art Show kicks off on Wednesday the 18th, and all three of its tributaries are publicly available Thursday-Sunday. Those tributaries include The Los Angeles Fine Art Show: Historic and Traditional; LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary; and the redoubtable International Fine Print Dealer’s Association Print Fair. On top of all that, the China Pavilion bridges Traditional and Contemporary with its “classic collection of Buddhist paintings” and PST’s performance week is honored with re-presentations of two landmark feminist performances from 1977 by Suzanne Lacy and Leslie Labowitz-Starus.

evening of the 18th and continuing through Sunday the 22nd. Located on the “Event Deck” atop LA Live’s west parking structure (what would be considered walking distance from the Convention Center in any other city), the Affordable Art Fair is a decade-old New York institution finally staking out the other coast, an opportunity for ‘most anyone not simply to gawk at contemporary art other people will buy, but to sift among work you yourself might well be able to afford, recession or no. Prices as low as $100! Nothing over $10,000! At least half the work under $5K! Appropriately, the AAFLA will be graced with special shows featuring printmaking demonstrations and the work of young artists whose MFAs and BFAs are freshly minted. After a couple-week breather, the southern California winter fair roundelay wraps up several hours east of Los Angeles. Palm Springs has played host for a while now to Modernism Week, celebrating the desert outpost’s mid-century efflorescence.

ART AS A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING! THE ART OF ELYSIUM’S JENNIFER HOWELL: A PROFILE — WORDS APARNA BAKHLE-ELLIS IMAGES COURTESY THE ART OF ELYSIUM

t is entirely fitting that a person intent on actually cultivating elysium, the Greek

word referring to a place or condition of ideal happiness, would be embraced

wholeheartedly by the culture of Los Angeles. Already well examined as a site

where the seemingly impossible becomes possible, L.A., home to a mind-boggling plethora of creative talent, is also notably a base for the especially privileged group of gifted individuals most know as celebrities. Jennifer Howell, a visionary Angeleno with enormous heart and soul, has successfully cultivated an exemplary way in which those talents rewarded with fame and fortune, as well as those intent on seeking it, can give back to society in ways that make significant differences in the lives of many hospitalized children. As the inspired driven founder of The Art of Elysium, a non-profit charitable organization that encourages working actors, artists and musicians to voluntarily dedicate their time and talent to enriching the lives of children wrestling with serious medical conditions, Howell embodies that which is virtuous about taking action in the face

of adversity. To say the least, hardship and suffering are challenging for most adults let alone the thousands of children in pediatric wards of Los Angeles hospitals alone who struggle with incalculable odds just trying to live.

JENNIFER HOWELL AND ARTIST MICHAEL MULLER WITH A PATIENT AT CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL LA

Practicing the art of generosity often becomes a tireless pursuit for individuals with an exceptionally strong sense of right and wrong. Excepting a keenness for justice in common, I cannot ascertain if I know how exactly to be kind in a broader sense than with my immediate community. For others like me, who might also need to be shown how to do so, discovering The Art of Elysium is an invaluable gift, since most of us readily admire and deeply respect those among us whose hearts give widely and unconditionally, who are so fully engaged in being of true service to others in so much need. Fabrik Magazine recently had the honor of having Ms. Howell open her heart to intimately share some of what she experiences through The Art of Elysium.

PROFILE

Please share something about the inception and organic growth of The Art of Elysium, specifically describing what emerged from those early hospital visits with the children. What, since the first few years, has changed within the programs/workshops you offer, and what continues? Starting The Art of Elysium was really unintentional. I moved to Los Angeles, after film school, with every intention of pursuing a career in writing and directing. I had started working at Universal Studios when I received a call from my best friend from home, Tara Williamson. Her boyfriend, a close childhood friend of mine, had been diagnosed with leukemia in our senior year of high school. There was a massive bone marrow drive in our hometown and luckily they had found a match, so Stephen was able to have a successful bone marrow transplant. He had been in remission and then suddenly relapsed. Tara and I spoke daily about what was going on with both Stephen and her during this terrible time. She told me I should come home for the holidays to see him. Regardless of how much she and I had communicated, nothing prepared me for how quickly the disease had taken over Stephen’s life and appearance. Our friends and families from home (Hattiesburg, MS) decided to go to Memphis for New Year’s to celebrate Stephen and the start of 1997. As Tara, Stephen and I drove up together, Stephen told me about a little boy he met while in treatment at Vanderbilt. While this child’s family was working hard to pay for his medical care and taking care of his other siblings, he was left to face his treatments alone. Stephen’s compassion for this child, while in the midst of his own suffering, forever changed my heart, my life and my destiny. Stephen wished that people did not feel bad for him but instead did something for children so they did not have to endure hospitalization alone. Returning to Los Angeles, I could not shake the story that Stephen shared or the call to action that he was asking for. By August of 1997, I knew that all I had to give was in the arts. I knew a lot of artists that were so talented and could dedicate some time to going in and working with these children. I had a meeting at Universal with 23 friends that I had gone to school with and we went around the table with what kind of workshops we could do in various hospital settings. I took notes and scheduled a meeting with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and we did our first music workshop the last week of that August. There was no intention of a non-profit, just a group of artists going in to volunteer. That changed in December of 1997. I received a call from CHLA and they asked me to come in for a meeting. I walked into a conference room and was told

46

PROFILE

that they loved everything that we were doing but that I needed to start a non-profit to continue the work because of liability reasons. They referred me to an attorney and that was the true inception of what is now The Art of Elysium. I was so fortunate because from August to December of 1997, I was able to see not only the impact the workshops had on the children but also the impact it had on the artists and their own creative process. That is why the full circle concept of the charity is so unique. We are, first and foremost, an artist charity because without our artists, we would have nothing to give our children. The children are inspired and taken out of their environment through creative endeavors at each workshop and they thrive from the inspiration. Artists reconnect to the passion of their own artistic expression and they create in a different way from then on. We try and make sure that all of our fundraising efforts tie back to one of our four artistic disciplines: art, fashion, music or theatre. We do this because we want the beginning, middle and end of all that we do to be in the creative expression that we call the state of Elysium.

THE ART OF ELYSIUM’S ANNUAL ART GALAS AND OTHER EVENTS ARE WELL ATTENDED BY HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES AND SUPPORTED BY NOTABLE SPONSORS SUCH AS CARTIER, VOGUE, DOLCE & GABBANA, RELATIVITY MEDIA, FORD, AUDI, BALLY, TODS, VANITY FAIR, GILT GROUPE, AND FERRAGAMO.

PROFILE

What is most inspiring about steering The Art of Elysium? I am inspired on a daily basis and depending on the day, the source of inspiration changes. Of course, the constant inspiration for everyone at The Art of Elysium is our children. Their smiles and self-expression are our bottom line and it is the greatest thing about what we do. The letters from families thanking our artists for giving their child a voice or the holiday cards that we received from our patients thanking the artists who have worked with them are all immeasurable inspirations. The first patient that I ever had the honor and privilege of working with passed away on Christmas Day 2011. We are greatly mourning her loss. She had cystic fibrosis and several years ago, she had a double lung transplant. One day, she told me that she wanted to show me something. Directly on top of her scar from the transplant, she had a tattoo of The Art of Elysium angel. She said that it gave her hope and that she knew as long as she had outlets to express herself, she could deal with whatever was going to happen. She has been an on-going inspiration to me and will always remain in my heart and soul. The other side of inspiration is when artists walk out of a workshop and call us a week later to share their latest song, or ask if they can come in to show us their

new piece of art that came to them after they shared their creativity with our children. Also, the phone calls that we receive with people wanting to create new projects and exciting new ideas to help the charity raise money to expand our programs. The list really goes on and on. Two weeks ago, I went down to USC Medical Center and met Shepard Fairey to see the first art installation that he did for our VIEW Project. We are doing permanent art for the Pediatric Unit at USC. We’ve done other installations in the past but we are in charge of curating and installing permanent art for the entire unit. I cried and cried because of the difference Shepard’s mural made for the overall environment. The thing that is probably the biggest inspiration is the staff of this organization. Their dedication goes beyond any commitment that I have ever seen. They work weekends, nights, days, and never stop. They are there when volunteers call, patients call, donors call, and anything else is needed. We worked with 33,646 children in 2011, in both Los Angeles and New York. We have a full-time staff of 8 and a total of 12-15 consultants at any given time. They are the angels of this organization and I think that they deserve all of the accolades because they are fantastic. Your successful approach to fundraising, generously supported by the city’s celebrities and power brokers, has ensured The Art of Elysium what will be 14 years of exceptional service in 2012, bringing laughter, smiles, and respite to critically ill children in powerful need of creative expression and nurturing support. What is your organization’s vision for both the short and long term? We have been so blessed with all of the support that we have received from the arts community. Without their generosity, we would not have been able to consistently provide our programs for the past 14 years. Because we are a creative arts charity, I think that it is really difficult for people to grasp all that we do because we are limited by nothing but the creativity of the individuals who volunteer and participate with us. We have such a unique fundraising model because it ties directly back into our programs. Since every event that we do is related to music, art, fashion or theatre, we give the funds back to the specific program that is represented at the fundraising events. For instance, a musician that offers to perform a show and donate the money to ELYSIUM SESSIONS supports the music programs that we provide.

ACTOR ELIJAH WOOD CURATED THE ‘ELYSIUM’ COMPILATION ALBUM (AVAILABLE ON ITUNES) TO BENEFIT THE CHARITY.

Our short term goal is to stabilize both New York and Los Angeles annual budgets with this model and grow it in a way where all of our artists know that they are not only volunteering with our patients but creatively fundraising through their own talents and truly giving other artists the chance to volunteer with the nearly 35,000 children that we have worked with this past year alone. Our long-term goal is to build an endowment fund that would allow us to strategically grow in order to reach every city where there is a child in a hospital room and an artist in their community that is willing to share their creative talents with the patient. We have requests from Memphis, Nashville, Boston, Chicago and more. The only thing that is preventing us from providing services in those areas is the funding to set up chapters, train staff and recruit volunteer artists. The Art of Elysium’s programs pair hospitalized children with well-known (as well as up and coming) artists, actors, and musicians, providing these children with structured opportunities for creative self-expression and safe spaces to playfully release and process feelings that arise while they face their significant medical challenges. How do you recharge from the emotional aspects in work of this nature? Are there any places in Los Angeles and environs that feed and nurture your spirit?

I would like to clarify that we have several thousands of artists and they are all at different levels of their careers. I feel like there is a misconception that we deal mainly with celebrity because of the press attention that we receive from many of our signature events. I am so grateful for our incredible supporters that have achieved a level of success where their participation brings attention to the work that we do but we also work with so many artists that are still working their way up. I think that is what is so special about the organization, and why so many press worthy people are involved—because they actually do the volunteer work with our patients with their own creative voice and talent and are re-inspired and reminded of what got them into their profession to begin with—just the love of sharing their creativity with the world. The only thing different that our celebrity supporters do for us is to share their volunteer experiences with a larger audience and by doing so, open up our fundraising opportunities. We are so grateful to them but I just want to acknowledge all of the artists who support us and volunteer with us.

The volunteer experience and emotional toll that this work takes on both the staff and myself is a difficult thing to explain. I feel like we are always so grateful to be witness to the artistic workshops and that we are so blessed to hear from the patients, their parents, the hospital staff and the artists about what the work means to them. You get really attached to these children and their stories.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of loss in this type of work and I do not think that it is ever something that you can get used to nor escape from in any way. I think that the best way to describe how I deal with or recharge from these types of experiences is through my friends. My personal support system is made up of the best friends in the entire world. They are the people who listen to it all and never go anywhere and always love me, no matter what. I am so grateful for these people in my life. Along with the support of my friends, I recharge with a lot of therapy and even more prayers. 2011 was a really challenging year for fundraising. I also lost some very dear children. Personally, the year threatened to tear me apart in many ways. Now that it is 2012, I realize how truly thankful I am for all of the pain of 2011. It made me look at those around me and realize how they never left me to deal with any hardship alone. Years like that really show you who people are, and who shows up when things are tough. A specific place that feeds and nurtures my soul is downtown LA. I love it down there. The museums, Disney Hall, Dorothy Chandler, the fashion district, the flower market, every single bit of it, I find inspiring. I love that in such a small section that there are so many different creative influences. I think that everyone should spend more time exploring downtown because there are just so many interesting spots to discover. Every time I am down there, I find something new. The architecture is incredible and it is so diverse that I feel it is the best representation of what Los Angeles truly is-this city of artists coming together and creating ideas to share with the world. Of course, I love the ocean and the mountains, and everything outdoors that Los Angeles has to offer, but what feeds my soul is and always will be art and I find the hub of art in LA to be downtown. What is one positive challenge you encounter here, as a creative person interacting with so many other creative personalities? The endless possibilities to collaborate on so many different projects because of the nature of the charity! The possibilities are truly limitless with what we can do for the patients we work with and with our artists. Fine art collaborations, music concerts, documentaries, feature films, plays, fashion shows, merchandising opportunities‌truly, truly, truly boundless opportunities. My nature is to always immediately say yes to any and all things creative. As we’ve grown, it has been an interesting challenge to monitor what we can realistically manage. It is so hard for me to turn down

collaborative endeavors that would be wonderful to take on. With a limited staff, sometimes it is impossible to take on anything else. It is such a gift to have people come in and share their ideas and it breaks my heart when we have to say no or push it to a later date because of a sheer lack of manpower. What are some aspects of living and working in L.A. that you’d like to bring, through The Art of Elysium, to other cities or places? I would bring collaboration and the belief that we can heal our selves, others, and the world at large, through art. Los Angeles has given me the wonderful gift of collaborating with so many artists and through that experience, the charity has learned to utilize the gift of our artists to build something very different. I don’t know how this charity would have matured in another city because I think the power of art in Los Angeles is so much more prevalent than most anywhere else. Having the entertainment community based here gives us unprecedented access to the world. With LA being our home base, we have learned to get our message out in a way that will hopefully allow us to grow into a nationwide organization. The living and working style in LA is also very different than in most other cities. There is a happiness that comes from the environment here. You could have the most stressful day in the world but you look up and see the Griffith Park Observatory and are reminded of the hiking trails that are up there. I think that LA constantly reminds us that there is more to life than work and I hope to take that wherever The Art of Elysium goes. The Art of Elysium’s annual art galas, masquerade balls and other special events are an enormous part of your organization’s success. What are some resources and/or partners you rely on in L.A. to accomplish this? I am scared to answer this question because we rely on so many people, and so many resources, that we literally could not survive without them. As always, the first source of all that we do are our artist volunteers and what they contribute to all that we do. Some of our on-going supporters over the years for various events and programs are: Microsoft, Cartier, Boucheron, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, The Getty, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Relativity Media, Christie’s and there are so many more that have supported us over the past 14 years. Every artist, sponsor, volunteer, donor and vendor is priceless to the organization and to our growth.

PROFILE

Since moving to Los Angeles immediately after attending film school in Boston, you have carved such a uniquely meaningful path for yourself through the landscape of Hollywood. What advice would you give to those just beginning to navigate their way through the city? I moved to Los Angeles right out of film school because I fully thought that I was coming here to write and direct. From my personal experience here in Los Angeles, the best advice that I could give to anyone is to believe in your own creative process and to let go and let God. I have been able to rely on everything I learned in film school and to apply it in my life in a way that I never dreamt of. I feel grateful that, every day, I am able to direct some element of creativity, either in the hospital, at the office, or within some artistic collaboration. I had to let go of every goal that I thought I was pursuing and be fully open to this journey. I think being open to new possibilities will always open the door that you are supposed to walk through. With art and artists playing such an integral role within The Art of Elysium, have you begun collecting art and if so, what are some pieces in your personal collection? I absolutely live for art and have started collecting. The first piece that I purchased in Los Angeles was an assemblage piece by Jeff Higinbotham. That piece is still so dear to me. In my personal collection, I have works by Russell Young, Michael Muller, Kevin Llewellyn, Miles Eastman, Christopher Cuseo, Shane Edelman, Anthony James, Darin Fenn, Henry Diltz, Scott Caan, James Gilbert, Shepard Fairey and am currently waiting on a piece from Mark Mothersbaugh. I could spend every second of every day looking at art. The Art of Elysium is the official beneficiary of the 2012 LA Art Show.

In the panel session Contemporary Collaboratives and Collectives, cochairs - painter, writer and art blogger (Two Coats of Paint) Sharon L. Butler, and artist, writer and co-founder of LA Art Girls, Micol Hebron posit that the paradigm of the isolated artist in the hermetic studio is obsolete. And that with the “resurgence of collaborative activity in the art world, artist collaboratives and collective art practices have moved into the mainstream.” The panelists will represent many forms of artist collectives ranging from localized community groups and international collaboratives, to online collectives.

WILLIAM TURNER GALLERY Bergamot Station: 2525 Michigan Ave., Building E-1, Santa Monica WORDS PETER FRANK

COMING OUT: The Gleam in the Young Bastard’s Eye – Finish Fetish & the Continuing Fascination with Sensuality of Surface in Contemporary Art The subtitle summarizes the exhibition’s thrust, but couldn’t its visual effect. Which was the idea: the concept – or, rather, the actuality – of “finish fetish” practice in LA art is one not merely of luster, but of sensuality realized through the very suppression of tactility. The smoothest surfaces make for the most mysterious presences. This is a core principle of southern California “perceptualism,” finish/fetish and Light-and-Space movements alike, passed down – as this exhibition averred – over forty years between two or even three generations. Only two of the tendency’s pioneers, Roland Reiss and Fred Eversley, were included, and with relatively recent work (Eversley’s luminous disks held over from his one-person show immediately previous and Reiss’s captivating transparent “painting” itself only a decade or so old), but that was the point: finish is still being fetishized, often by artists only as old as the art they emulate. Moreover, most of them included here are painters; Eric Johnson, known for his beautifully crafted wood objects, kept Eversley lonely company as the only, er, bastards working in three dimensions. Technique and format notwithstanding, the array was surprisingly various, ranging from the radiance of Ruth Pastine’s monochromes and Lisa Bartleson’s halations to the soft, rhythmic pat-

terns of Michel Tabori and Casper Brindle and the fluid contemplations of Suzan Woodruff’s painterly surges and Andy Moses’ hypnotic eddies, not to mention Alex Couwenberg’s restless geometries – and the glossy para-Pop mega-collages of Greg Miller, as slick, brittle and alluring as any of the non-objective images around them. In a sense a sketch for a much larger show, “Gleam” was no less mind-tease than eye-thrill.

GOING IN: Alex Couwenberg & Karl Benjamin: Influence, Divergence & the Evolution of an Idea (THROUGH FEB. 25) With its conjuration of the “old school,” “Gleam” rated as one o’ them Pacific Standard Time gallery exhibitions. So does its successor, which pairs Alex Couwenberg (right down to re-hanging his painting from “Gleam”) with original hard-edge painter Karl Benjamin. The pairing finally brings together master and pupil – except that Couwenberg (who in fact studied with Reiss at Claremont Graduate University) wasn’t Benjamin’s student so much as his acolyte. The two are now fast friends, and the exhibition demonstrates the power of elective affinity through aesthetic DNA (or vice versa). In his 60-year career Benjamin has rung numerous changes on the possibilities of geometric painting, from dynamic asymmetry to insistent pattern, and the wealth of forms and strategies his oeuvre features recurs in a fascinating way in Couwenberg’s own work. While Benjamin tends to explore specific formulas deeply, in effect taking each apart and reassembling it with different color combinations or structural inversions, Couwenberg synthesizes such formulas into complex – and, compared to Benjamin’s featureless technique, painterly – compositions always on the verge of recomposing or even disappearing into themselves. Benjamin, principally concerned with the articulation of planar region, always bends towards minimalism (and, indeed, directly anticipated that trend in the early ‘60s), while Couwenberg, preoccupied as much with line as with color, returns again and again to the asymmetric harmonies of pre-war constructivism. Benjamin grew out of that aesthetic; some of his most handsome work recapitulates that almost choreographic dynamism. But by and large he sought a more neutral, open image, one that brought abstract expressionism’s meditative, all-over sense of field to geometric form. Couwenberg now seeks to re-introduce cubism’s facets and futurism’s kinesis into Benjamin’s minimalist colorscape – with the senior painter’s blessing.

JOHN WAGUESPACK DECONSTRUCTS HOLLYWOOD — WORDS CRAIG STEPHENS IMAGES COURTESY McGLOUGHLIN GALLERY

P

ainter John Waguespack is the consummate outsider artist. A former ad agency creative director, he hasn’t looked back since opting out of his day job to pursue a full-time painting career. Waguespack’s second solo show,

“Deconstructing Hollywood,” is on view through January 21st at the esteemed McGloughlin Gallery at 49 Geary. As a testament to his ability, Waguespack scored an uncharacteristic early break. Through a twist of fate, with nominal nepotism, manipulation or publicity, John landed his first solo show a year ago after catching the eye of gallerist Joan McGloughlin. Despite his thin resume, she was impressed enough to offer him a solo show at her namesake gallery in the heart of SF. Embodying a vibrant color pallet and using a linear form of deconstruction, with oil on canvas as his dominant medium, Waguespack's new series, "Deconstructing Hollywood," created in LA in the summer of 2011, examines LA, its people and iconography. It reflects on the stark contrasts between California’s north and south both in terms of personality and geography. "In this series, I deconstructed and reconstructed people and images,” he says. “I deconstructed them to understand what they looked like on an atomic level and I reconstructed them to understand what parts made up a whole. Essentially, it’s about my time in Hollywood. Not just the ethos of celebrity but the geography and its personality. The series also serves as a commentary on the people of LA." He adds, "On a personal level, it’s harder to connect with people in Los Angeles. San Francisco is smaller, the people are more indoor-based, and Los Angeles has such great weather, promoting people to get outside, yet oddly those in Los Angeles connect less. I found it bizarre how little Angelenos interact and meet new people. I think the weather makes it easier to work in LA and the climate is its key appeal."

PROFILE

On a technical level, Waguespeck says, the works are created using a mathematical base: “The process sees me reinterpret a digital image and sequester it into a new environment.” Deconstructing Hollywood embodies a color pallet that stirs the emotions- with 24 pieces in the series. Before this current series, Waguespack says, he was more entrenched in political work inspired by the chaos and controversy of 9/11. "It was an odd time and I felt a strange sense of alienation witnessing it all from the comfort of a TV in San Francisco." — Exhibit Information: John Waguespack: Deconstructing Hollywood December 2011 – January 2012 McGloughlin Gallery – 49 Geary Street, San Francisco (www.mgart.com)

LOS ANGLES AT ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH — WORDS PHIL TARLEY IMAGES PHIL TARLEY, COURTESY PACIFICCOASTNEWS.COM

A

midst the howling cacophony of contemporary art, Los Angeles work was solidly represented at Art Basel Miami Beach and at the countless satellite shows that surround and envelope it. At the Miami Beach Convention cen-

ter, Regan Projects commanded a commodious prime corner spot on the Art Basel stage with their California-centric art selling briskly-well. Over at Art Miami, Peter Fetterman, photographed next to a work by Elizabeth Sunday, sold thirty pieces from his collection of elegant black and white fiber prints. It was his first experience at the Art Basel Miami fairs. “I hadn’t exhibited in Miami for twenty years. I thought Miami to be too much of a ‘scene’ for me. To some extent, showing at the Miami fairs is somewhat like having a hot dog stand at Coney Island. There are crowds and crowds of people parading through your booth, but at the end of the day, it’s really about meeting two or three great collectors who plug into your esthetic and like your work. What more could a dealer hope for? I’d come back if they ask me next year.”

This year broke attendance records with more than 55,000 artophiles clamoring over 200 galleries and that was just the mother show — the United Bank of Switzerland’s behemoth, At Basel show, the show that’s radically changed the way contemporary art is sold throughout the entire art universe. Artist Andy Moses’ wonderful, highly pigmented abstracts were showing at Aqua, on Collins Avenue in South Beach, where the trend is a hotel take-over, with each gallery commanding a room or a suite. Moses’ biggest piece, Caspana, a massive, concave 36” x 72” inch masterwork, was over at Scope, at the Jacob Kari Gallery. Andy’s fetish-finished sensuous art works are best shown off gigantic-sized. The bigger they are, the bigger they seem, and the more they pull the viewer into a delicious vortex of color; a nexus of painterly fluidity. Moses, an eight year veteran of the Miami shows, talked about his experience. “I always love these fairs. It’s a great way to connect with the art world at large and see what’s going on. Coming to all these giant shows makes me feel like I am a part of something important, something much larger and I am always inspired. Showing in Miami makes me stay on top of my game and focus even more towards developing my own work in a deeper way.” Marsea Goldberg’s West Hollywood based New Image Art Gallery almost sold out her torrid mix of skater-surfer-tagger-thrasher influenced art. Her booth sparkled with some of the freshest L.A. work around. This was Marsea’s second year at Scope Miami and the irrepressible, insouciant gallerist was thrilled. Every artist she brought sold something. Ten big works were snapped right up by happy collectors. Her star artist, Cleon Peterson vended a huge 84” x 168” inch piece for $32,000.

Amour Vincit Omnia translates as Love Conquers All and by the artist’s sweet-glowing demeanor, it was clear she found love in Miami.

Painting is a long and solitary process. The Art Basel shows sweep me up into a totally new environment. This intensity — it’s so exciting. It’s quite a heady feeling to actually see my work selling. It feels great to be embraced by collectors. The Los Angeles Art Association made its first showing in Miami with a selection of video art at The Miami Beach Cinematheque, called ‘Electric-Wedding.’

JANELLE MONAE AT ANOTHER MIAMI CHAMPAGNE PARTY

Among the shorts was Johnny Naked’s slick and silly 80 Individual Seconds, made up of 80 shots of the artist’s face counting off each different moment, which the artist describes as a different look at his process in a video artist statement. In the small Art Deco theater in South Beach, where the video was screened, Peter Mays, director of the L.A. Art Association opined, “L.A. artists’ strong presence at the Miami fairs are evidence of our increasing impact on contemporary art practice and discourse.” Mays’ revelation would have to apply to both high and low brow contemporary art as two not to be left out Los Angles ‘works,’ known as Paris Hilton and Holly Woodlawn, marked the Art Basel Miami Beach shows with their highly theatrical party-hardy-arty presence. Both were attending dueling affairs at The W Hotel South Beach, where guests were doused with celebrity art stars and copious amounts of good champagne that had this writer going back and forth between the simultaneous events held at the W’s Wall Club; where the Andy Warhol Foundation was honoring HollyWoodlawn; and at another party on the opposite side of the W; where P. Diddy

SPOTLIGHT

HOLLY WOODLAWN AND ANDY WARHOL ON A BOTTLE OF BEER AT THE WARHOL FOUNDATION PARTY AT THE W HOTEL SOUTH BEACH

hosted a sit-down diner for 500 at Mr. Chow’s South Beach to fete Italian photographer Mazzucco. The lensman was promoting his new book, Culo Morbido, which translates as Killer Ass — a tone poem to the derrières of his female models, and perhaps to some of his guests, as well. This year set a new level of opulent decadence in coolster celebrity art soirees. These art parties elevated sensorial overload to a highly frenzied state — a kind of bizarre, offbeat, stand and model — see and be seen — party as performance art, where Hollywood pop culture stars mix it all up into a frothy mélange of glamour, art and money — California style — but staged in South Beach. The Miami shows converge a fusion of international art dealers, überpartyplanners, glamorattis, fashionistas, scenesters, film and art celebs, along with the hordes of photographers and press needed to indelibly anoint the week’s events as the Olympics of contemporary art venues. One wonders what next year’s show will bring. This yearly phenom morphs on an annual basis, recasting itself in the strangest and most splendid ways.

Peter Frank’s

MUSEUM VIEWS J. PAUL GETTY MUSEUM Pacific Standard Time: Los Angeles Art 1945-1980 THROUGH FEBRUARY 5 From Start to Finish: De Wain Valentine’s Gray Column THROUGH MARCH 11

THE GETTY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Greetings from L.A.: Artists and Publics, 1950-1980 THROUGH FEBRUARY 5 Pacific Standard Time is in full swing. Indeed, the “swing shift,” where the first line of exhibitions finishes up and the second line opens, takes place this month – a reminder to get to those shows you’d spent the entire fall saying you’d get to. You have the whole month to climb up the mountain and visit the beating heart of PST. The initiative’s archipelago of exhibitions radiates out from the Getty, which designed, planned, and, to a large extent, funded PST. The powers that be allowed its myriad collaborating institutions to formulate their own exhibitions, only playing traffic cop so that programming would hew to the basic guidelines – Southern California art, 1945-1980 – and wouldn’t prove redundant. Indeed, if the PST exhibition and event roster seems to skew this way or that, favoring one group or movement or medium over another, it’s not the fault of the Getty, but of current curatorial taste. Indeed, the Getty’s own exhibitions – especially its banner show, “Pacific Standard Time,” and the Research Institute’s own “Greetings from L.A.” – acknowledge, even discover, a catholicity of means, media, and attitudes throughout the postwar Los Angeles art scene. “Pacific Standard Time” is nothing if not a carefully organized, carefully revelatory parade of greatest hits, as close to a compendium of period masterpieces as one might dare assemble at this point. However you might cavil at the absence of a particular artist, you marvel at the presence of other artists seen at their very best. The “Pacific Standard Time” show presents itself quite deliberately as a point in a work in progress, a spur to future projects. That’s the excuse: the reason to see the show is it’s a fabulous eyeful. Everybody looks good. Legendary artworks, such as Ed Kienholz’s pogo-stick-mounted assemblage portrait of Walter Hopps or David Hockney’s pool painting A Bigger Splash or early, mural-size claywork by John Mason

ART ABOUT TOWN WITH PETER FRANK

or funky wall sculptures assembled from Watts-riots ruins by Noah Purifoy and Betye Saar are all here, glistening not with nostalgia but with a presence at least as vibrant as they must have had when first exhibited forty-fifty years ago. This is work that looks really good in a museum setting, the Getty’s not least – although, admittedly, some of the rough-and-tumble late-‘50s clayworks and Beat-era and Watts-era constructions occupy their niches restlessly, as if itching to run back out into the street yelling “Occupy PST!” But that’s as it should be; if the exhibition can preserve some of the artwork’s original rebelliousness, not tame it into submission, then it’s paying the art its props. “Greetings from L.A.” pays similar homage to the art world that engendered these spectacular objects – and concepts. A quintessential Getty Research Institute display, it brims with clippings, photos, exhibition mailers, personal letters, and an avalanche of ephemera that all piece together the events and the mindsets that constituted art activity in the postwar Southland. Given the nature of the time, and the place, it is crucial to establish this sense of milieu and activity; after the 1950s, at least, the artworks themselves aren’t enough. Indeed, sometime during the ‘60s, milieu and activity became artwork. Happenings, performances, events, situations, conceptual gestures, publications, broadcasts, and other low-level material that had a high impact in its day survive only in their documentation, some of it carefully photographed, but some of it enduring only by word of mouth or the merest idea-sketch. Other shows in the PST constellation – the Orange County Museum’s “Around 1970,” for instance, or “Under the Big Black Sun” at MOCA Geffen – are built around such material, but it’s largely absent from the Getty’s flagship show, relegated instead to “Greetings From L.A.” A reasonable call: such selfeffacing artwork wants to hang with show invites and newspaper articles, and together all this paper (and video and such) describes an art scene as fun, and yet aesthetically and socially profound, as the art it supported. While up the hill, don’t miss “From Start to Finish,” documenting the restoration of De Wain Valentine’s Gray Column. Itself a masterpiece of finish/fetishlight-and-space art, the imposing polyester resin slab creates special problems for restorers. The show documents its fabrication in the mid-1970s, looking at Valentine’s pioneering techniques and also at the problems posed since because of the formal instability resin assumes in this shape and at this scale. The exhibition – and the work itself – makes all the techie stuff thoroughly fascinating. For more information, please visit the museum’s website at: http://www.getty.edu/museum/
