Kenneth David Lee incorporated sustainable conveniences throughout his own residence, including roof mounted solar panels that provide 50-75% of the home’s usable energy.


PERFECTING A PRACTICE: THE GOOD WORKS OF ARCHITECT KENNETH DAVID LEE

Los Angelenos live in somewhat of an urban wild, where areas resplendent in nature are coupled with highly developed environments, often under duress. The unstable foundations provided by many hill, canyon and mountain topographies might challenge even the most sure-footed among us. Throwing in a propensity for frequent fires, landslides and potentially deadly earthquakes makes L.A. seem downright dangerous. If Southern California’s weather were not the balm it is, this city would no doubt be (a bit?) less populated. But its millions of residents are stalwarts. It is here, in a city full of such contradictions, that esteemed architect Kenneth David Lee situates his practice. 


A believer in and adherent of site-specificity with regard to each project undertaken by his firm Kenneth David Lee Architects, he has also made it his business to acquire invaluable knowledge about disaster preparedness. Having been instrumental in creating crucial disaster relief procedures for the SoCal area, Lee has devoted countless hours to the restoration of homes damaged or lost in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. In his firm’s two decades of practice, Lee, along with his long-term design associates, has strived to develop and provide architecture for “those most in need.” This mandate has resulted in a vision that ensures the livability, structure, and surrounding landscape of a residence while also creating timeless homes in contextual settings. With projects as diverse as his clients, Lee’s impressive portfolio proves his firm regards each commission they receive as a challenge to the imagination that produces the diverse and distinctive properties they are known for.

KDL carefully sited this contemporary hilltop home in Pacific Palisades to allow for the infiltration of natural light and air, while taking advantage of the property’s expansive views.

Fabrik is delighted to share this insightful interview with Kenneth David Lee. Your firm’s eclectic projects encompass residential renovations ranging from Mediterranean estates to mid-century modern homes to cutting edge contemporary structures. You've achieved recognition for over 500 residences, as well as a variety of commercial spaces, all distinguished by thoughtful, versatile design. In a “fickle” city like Los Angeles, you've cultivated impressive long-term relationships with clients that include Steve Vai, Warren Beatty and Annette Benning, and Howard Bragman, among others. Fabrik: What was it about architecture that first captivated you? KDL: The intertwining of art and engineering. I am deeply passionate about art, however you might say that I was intimidated by the lack of structure within the art world. I was drawn to the constraints of a built structure, and I am able to use my engineering background to carry out my artistic vision with confidence. Fabrik: Prior to opening Kenneth David Lee Architects twenty years ago, you studied and worked with Edward Niles, noted for some of the most innovative glass and steel structures atop Southern California hillsides in recent years. How did that relationship inform and influence your own vision of architecture?

Through an elegant restoration of this 1930s Mediterranean villa, KDL created a comfortable home that embraces the simplicity of contemporary living, while still maintaining a distinguished traditional sensibility.


KDL: My experience working with Edward Niles made me conscious of the fact that no matter who my clients are, there are budgetary restraints and these must be respected. My opportunity with Edward has had a significant effect on the way I manage my own firm as well as the way that I cultivate my long-term client relationships. Fabrik: Are there any current LA artists or art venues that you find compelling? KDL: There are so many art galleries that come and go. The Museum of Jurassic Technology is a great place. And the Center For Land Use Interpretation, right next door. I think those two places are some of the diamonds in the rough as far as LA. But things pop up all the time that I don't even know about, but I’ve got my ear to the ground. Fabrik: How does the physical landscape and mythology of Los Angeles affect your sensibility? KDL: Los Angeles is a city of great diversity in terms of its landscape. I enjoy the opportunity to work in different environments and ecosystems on a daily basis. Practicing in this city has really trained me to see all projects as being site specific. Fabrik: What is the biggest challenge you face as an architect in Los Angeles? KDL: Obviously at this moment the economy is greatly affecting our industry, however with specific regard to Los Angeles, I find the physical constraints to be most challenging. Having built over 500 homes throughout Southern California, I continue to encounter precarious sites to which I need to adjust my designs. The area’s varying topography, wildfires, seismic activity, landslides and other conditions must be considered at all times. This challenge has inspired me to become an expert in natural disaster prevention and renovations. Fabrik: What are some local architectural landmarks you are inspired by? KDL: The Wilshire Boulevard Temple has been extremely influential to me since my childhood. I spent days counting the squares on the temple's dome, discovering the technical and mathematical aspects of a structure. Other landmarks by which I am inspired include the Grauman's Chinese and Egyptian Theaters in Hollywood, the May Company Building, the Bullocks Wilshire and the Disney Concert Hall. These are classic examples of buildings and architecture that only seem to exist in Los Angeles. Fabrik: Who are some artists you are influenced by? KDL: Vasa Mihich, who works with Plexiglas to create contemporary sculptural pieces. He was an instructor of mine who had a tremendous influence on my work. I am very influenced by furniture designers as well. Classic furniture pieces such as Eames and Mies van der Rohe chairs are multi-functional. They become sculptural stand-alone elements in the home that are not only practical, but are also pieces of art. Fabrik: Does fashion inform your design sensibility? 12

FA B R I K


Adding a tranquil ambience to this California ranch-style house, the master bath was designed by KDL to inspire a Zen-like environment with an open layout, calming dark wood trim, and a luxurious oversized bathtub.

KDL: I try to go against the grain whenever I am approached with designing a home. I want each residence that I design to be a truly distinctive property that reflects the client's personality and spirit, much like a couture designer dressing a celebrity for the Academy Awards. In addition, as we consistently work with various fabrics and colors in the design process, fashion definitely lends us a sense of appropriate combinations and styles. Fabrik: Where do you most enjoy hearing live music in Los Angeles? KDL: I enjoy going to the Hollywood Bowl. In addition to great acoustics and a spectacular location, it is a treasure that is unique to Los Angeles. To witness a performance in the venue is to be surrounded by art, architecture and history. Fabrik: As an architect with a thriving practice, you still find many ways to give back to the community, one of which is designing affordable housing on a pro-bono basis. How essential is green design and sustainable architecture to developing affordable housing? FA B R I K

13


KDL: Because the upfront costs of sustainable design can be cost-prohibitive, many times it is overlooked when designing affordable housing. In this world it is essential to consider green design in all housing, including affordable. Design becomes critical to the process because our team can help source materials and incorporate sustainable elements that will save money for the end users. Fabrik: Your daughter Catie Lee is an accomplished landscape designer who works in your firm and also has her own landscape design firm. Do you have any advice for children of architects with similar aspirations? KDL: The best advice I could give parents to be open-minded and give credence to their children’s ideas. It is essential to be supportive without being overbearing to allow your children to find their own way. Catie chose a career for which she has a passion; fortunately for me, her career is closely intertwined with our business and both she and our firm have benefited significantly from this experience. Fabrik: In addition to your architecture practice, you preside over a construction company and invest in real estate. Your firm's services include interior design, furniture selection and landscape design. What are some ways in which clients benefit from hiring a firm doing both architectural design and construction? KDL: As a design/build company under one roof, we have the capacity to provide our clients with a wealth of services. It’s similar to using both sides of the brain (left and right) simultaneously. There is no dominant side because we have both the logical (left) and artistic (right) all under the same roof working together. Therefore, the process becomes more fluid and we can implement changes through less rigorous methods.

Lee is an alumnus of USC, and is a lifetime member of the USC Architecture Guild. He has been a distinguished lecturer at Woodbury University, SCI-Arc and USC, and has worked with and provided career opportunities for the school's interns for several years. His past accomplishments included serving as the president of the San Fernando Valley AIA Chapter as well as serving on as a member of the chapter's board for almost 20 years. He has also served on several architecture design juries and assisted in the foundation of the AIA San Fernando Valley Chapter. More information can be found at: http: //www.kdlarchitects.com

LAAWARDS WORDS PETER FRANK

THE JUROR'S VIEWPOINT:

The Skylark Prize My colleagues at Skylark honored me by asking that I judge the first Skylark Prize, to be awarded, as they put it, “to an artist whose work has proven to be innovative, while consistent in quality.” The on-line announcement of such an award attracted exactly that kind of artist – quite a few of them, in fact. The award package was tempting enough: a cash prize of $2000, but also a six-week fully paid fellowship at Sias International University in SKYLARK AWARD DESIGNED BY Zhengzhou, China (which includes trips to Beijing VERMONT SCULPTOR, RICHARD ERDMAN and Shanghai) and, for winner and runners-up alike, an exhibition, complete with catalogue, at Skylark’s Los Angeles gallery, optimally located in West Hollywood. The award itself, a sculpture designed by Vermont bronze master Richard Erdman, iced the cake. Judging is never easy, at least past the first round or two during which the chaff separates from the wheat. The submissions that survived that shake-out process were many and imposing. I’ve found, interestingly enough, that international competitions can't always be depended on to yield such substance. The regional shows I’ve judged have invariably been strong, as the word gets out through the local grapevines, but shows with broader grasps don’t always have the reach. In this case, we brought in superb artists from all over the country, and many parts of the world. Indeed, I wondered about my own bias: three of the six finalists, including the winner, are southern Californians (and two more from northern California), so I wonder if working as a professional art-taster in this state for over 2 decades hasn't tilted me into the Pacific, as it were. No, I reason, we got a good response from all over the United States (if perhaps less so from abroad), and the ultimate selection simply argues for the particular vigor of artistic activity in this state – especially down here in the Southland. 16

FA B R I K


The Sias University link is an especially provocative aspect of the Skylark Prize. Sias International University is the first such institution in the People’s Republic of China to be established according to American university standards, while also incorporating aspects of European collegiate instruction. The arts constitute a major part of Sias University’s curriculum, and their newly-built and ever-expanding campus includes remarkable facilities for all the arts. The school has been maintaining a visual artists’ residency program that has favored artists from the States, and it now draws on Skylark and the Skylark Prize for some fresh outside-themainstream faces. As it turns out, Sias will bring over not only prizewinner David McDonald, but Nancy Braver, a runner-up whom Sias officials also regard as especially appropriate to their program. Is it a coincidence that both McDonald and Braver are based in Los Angeles? It is not a coincidence that I knew both McDonald’s work and Braver's before judging the contest. As usual, many artists entered the contest upon learning that I would judge it, aware of the fact that I already knew their work. It was frustrating, in fact, to be able to include so few applicants I knew to be of merit; that is to say, you shoulda seen the ones that got away. But that could be said as well about applicants entirely unknown to me whose images intrigued me. One of the main motivations for judging such shows, after all, is to make new discoveries. I did that, certainly, and two of the runners-up, at least, were unfamiliar to my eyes until now. Skylark Prizewinner David McDonald has established himself nationally with an ongoing body of work that conflates minimalism, “material abstraction,” and an emphatically painterly sensibility. The roughness and obduracy of the object’s ingredients gives it evident weight, but its self-containment proves endearingly graceful, and often surprising, as it partly blends in with its architectural surroundings. Indeed, the work’s gritty modesty and low-key sensuality save it from self-conscious formula. McDonald’s art does not pose as abject; to the contrary, it asserts the dignity of its form and substance. Nancy Braver, the runner-up headed for Zhengzhou, builds on her own experience as a sculptor and contemporary artist to create elegant, witty, logical yet playful and even magical structures whose myriad segments mirror and elaborate one another with an almost biological logic. Braver’s forms are stark, their presence is forceful, their colors are bold and sweet, but the light that animates all these is soft and gentling – a modifying factor that makes every other element cohere. The third Angeleno in the mix, performance artist Jamie McMurry, takes an approach to performance art (yes, performance art!) that frees the discipline from the stage and returns it to where it began in the context of art: out in life itself. Renewing the efforts of Allan Kaprow and the artists of Fluxus, McMurry conceives of and carries out tasks and efforts whose sense of spectacle resides in their absurdity, their surprise, and their often sport-like expenditure of energy. Such compactly conceived, efficiently realized activities infer the engagement of their audience (and gratify their performers) with their brevity, their skewed but apparent logic, and the dissolution they effect between quotidian existence and the “special realm” – the realm of unanticipated entertainment and heightened awareness – that art provides. FA B R I K

17


Connie Goldman maintains a reductivist formal vocabulary, producing clearly described forms in single colors, albeit in eccentric relationship to the angled shapes of the canvases themselves. For all their starkness, Goldman’s paintings, if anything, temper rather than agitate the eye; indeed, they can function as objects of contemplation whose presence infers harmony and balance. This is not the aggressive, obdurate Minimal Art theorized in the 1960s, but the transcendent minimalism explored earlier, at least as far back as Malevich. Goldman does not freight her icons of absence with spiritual import; but in their resonance they can provide something of the perceptual shift we associate with metaphysical insight. Joan Schulze is best known as a quilt-maker; but the quilts she makes function physically like collages, the collages she realizes depend heavily on fabric, and her prints, too, embrace both the formal balances and discontinuities of collage while radiating quilt-like sensuality. Schulze is dedicated less to a particular discipline than to a particular sensibility, the “collage aesthetic” that mirrors the disjunctive quality of modern life and seeks to determine coherence and harmony within such disjunction. The presence of photographic imagery in her quilts, fabric patterns in her prints, and painterly passages in her collages all attest to Schulze's unified approach to these disparate media. The exuberant abstractions of Oklahoman Tommy White, composed of diverse forms arrayed in rhythmic counterpoint across and around the picture plane, have their source in a vision that manifests what can only be called a childlike sophistication. They subtly depend on a kind of syntax of shapes, as if the linear fragments and burgeoning silhouettes – posed against one another like collage elements but not allowed to touch – were pictograms in hieroglyphic tablets. White's paintings effervesce with a doubled animation, an animation you can imagine projected on a screen and an animation you can feel percolating throughout life itself. White’s carefully reasoned and yet thoroughly ingratiating paintings aren't the kind of abstractions your kid could do; they’re the kind of abstractions your kid should do. Images of works in the show follow, but, as usual, these reproductions do the work little justice, so if you're anywhere near the Pacific Design Center before January 24, a visit to the Skylark Gallery (8576-A Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood) will still yield surprises. Visits to the artists' Websites, of course, will provide substantial background and, at least in a couple of cases, illuminating videos (or links to same). McDonald and Braver head for China later this spring. Meanwhile, Skylark is gearing up for the 2nd Annual Prize competition, which will hopefully link West Hollywood that much more with the rest of the art world – and, for that matter, the rest of the art world with the burgeoning art scene(s) of Los Angeles.

DOWNTOWN WORDS JESI KHADIVI

C H I N AT O W N ew cities are fortunate enough to have a gallery district as unique as LA’s Chinatown. This cozy, outcropping of garish pagodas and paper lanterns is a hyper-real version of a Chinese village, hence artist Andre Yi’s riff on the iconic Hollywood sign, Chinatownland, a sculpture which was displayed in a vacant lot on Hill Street until fairly recently. Chung King road, a kitschy pedestrian mall that houses many of Chinatown’s contemporary art galleries, was built in the 1940s as part of “New Chinatown” after plans for Union Station led to the razing of the original Chinatown. Long home to Chinese specialty shops and importers, the area’s store fronts began to be settled by art galleries in the late 1990s. Now teeming with cutting edge galleries and hip shops, all elbowing up against Chinese social clubs and restaurants, the area is home to a diverse range of art spaces, ranging from the experimental to the more established (many of the neighborhood’s galleries are nationally, if not internationally acclaimed). As can be expected of such a dynamic area, the neighborhood is in flux. Long time Chinatown denizens like Javier Peres (Peres Projects) and David Kordansky (Kordansky Gallery) have jumped ship for the West Side’s contemporary art hotspot, Culver City. Other galleries have been playing musical chairs with their locations. Katie Brennan of Sister Gallery took over one of the two Peres Project store fronts, and numerous other spaces have taken up new leases mere blocks away, or in at least one case, across the street from their original space. The folks who have stayed put, however, are keeping Chinatown’s collaborative spirit alive. »

CRACK GALLERY

FRANCES BAKERY

Although it sounds as if it is an artistic display of illegal substances, Crack Gallery is a Melrose-type retail and art boutique on burgeoning 6th Street. It is among the Downtown trend of art gallery + retail or restaurant businesses sprouting at the rate of growth on a Chia pet. Eric Shomof, not a fashion expert but a downtown real estate tycoon excitedly explains the reason he opened Crack, “When associated with downtown LA, hearing the word “crack” makes everyone automatically think of the drug. We're trying to show that Downtown is changing and the old stigmas are dying out. Clothing and Art are the new drugs of Downtown, and we want everyone to “get addicted.��� Obsession to the store's moderatepriced punk and hipster garb while shopping amongst black metal arching clothing racks and soaring industrial ceilings will be challenging to avoid. The store’s stark white walls are crammed with paintings from a local downtown painter. When you need a break from picking out a one-of-kind hand painted t-shirt or a funky piece of costume jewelry… wander downstairs to the basement dedicated solely to showcasing local art for sale. A consistent fix of Crack is highly recommended as there is no way to build a tolerance for their drug of choice—the fashions for both sexes and art displays change often.

A surprising hidden gem of the pastry world awaits you in a strip mall in Little Tokyo.

GRAMMY MUSEUM

PUSSY AND POOCH

At last there’s a place in Los Angeles where all types of music lovers—from gospel to death metal - can unite and explore their passion. The Grammy Museum, recently opened in early December 2008, gives you the opportunity to experience all forms of music, the creative process, the art and technology of the recording, and the history of the Grammy Awards in a very hands-on and entertaining way. “Our exhibits and programs explore the process of music making—from songwriting to recording—while celebrating the interconnected histories of all genres of music”, explains museum director Robert Santelli. Mix an album with a prominent sound master as your guide, see Elvis’ guitar or J Lo's scandalous green dress, play Grammy trivia, or see where music movements started on an interactive map of the United States. You could spend endless hours with over twenty four interactive exhibits to play with and learn from. The thought-provoking first exhibit on display until Fall 2009, Songs of Conscience, Sounds of Freedom, spans the 200 year history of music and politics in America, featuring things like the Dixie Chicks’-Bush conflict to an 1816 copy of the Star Spangled Banner. The exhibit makes a strong point that music is not just for entertainment but a major social and political influence. Not stopping with just a museum, a 200 seat Grammy sound stage features intimate performances and interviews with legendary musicians. With all it has to offer, it is truly an unforgettable and moving experience. Get your groove on and get lost in the magic of music at the Grammy Museum located in the L.A LIVE complex.

Like a chic retail store as hip and sleek as those on Rodeo drive, Pussy and Pooch is an ultra modern pet spa, boutique and bar. Catering to your indoor pet in an urban setting, they offer a self serve bathhouse with premium spa products, facials, and paw treatments. For most downtown-ers, yards are either a patch of grass the size of a stamp or obsolete. P & P gives your pet time to play outside in their outdoor covered patio while you enjoy free Wi-Fi and human Scooby snacks from one of the local eateries. However, your eats may not be as remarkable as Fido's because he has his own pet restaurant on site. First of its kind, Pawbar™ is a food counter serving raw meat and bones, simmered stews, dog beer, popcorn and doggie frozen yogurt with custom ‘seats’ for 3 dogs (or brave cats) at a time. The cleverly designed 'seats' look more like mini-cubicles, possibly to squelch bad meal etiquette like stealing food or growling at your neighbor! Take out doggie-bag pet dinners are available for a pet (or owner) on the go. In the near future, you'll get to take cooking classes from guest chefs on how to cook healthy pet meals. No need to worry about your dog’s untimely bathroom needs while shopping; P&P has a PETaPOTTY™ in-store. A PETaPOTTY™ is like a litter box for dogs, complete with synthetic grass and a life-like fire hydrant. However you'd like to bling out or pamper your furry friend, from designer clothing to modern pet furniture to stylish carriers, Pussy and Pooch is a trendy haven for pets and pet parents alike.

THE ASSOCIATION

WEENEEZ

A mysterious black door affixed with the number 110 and a brass lion head doorknocker is the only clue that another lounge for downtown dwellers has opened. Ashley Jones, owner of Bar Copa and The Room among others, says the door is an exact replica of the 10 Downing door, the official residence of the British prime minister in London. Inside the mood is subdued, classic and non-biased to the crowd it welcomes. One could easily imagine Kidd Rock having a Cuba Libre with Hillary Clinton. The most outrageous of the décor is the authentic Vegas casino carpet. Shining crystal chandeliers mixed with brown leather banquette couches and red wooden walls create an interesting fusion of design between British sophistication and a 1970's Playboy club. Nostalgia is in vogue and both the design and cocktail menu are a tribute of better days gone by. The Association’s cocktail menu features international and American cocktails as old as the 1800's. The Pisco sour cocktail of egg white, homemade sweet and sour, Barsol Pisco (a grape brandy) and Peruvian-style bitters is a frothy perfection of beauty and subtleties. Nicholas the head bartender passionately explains their selection of alcohol is not based on marketing but rather on finding quality offthe-radar liquor. For the hard-working, hungry happy hour crowd, Association offers gourmet cheese and meat plates for only $4 from MonFri, 5-9 pm. The Association’s only strict associations are to make perfectly mixed cocktails in a comfortable lounge setting for neighbors and travelers alike.

Hot dogs and Art? What a disastrous combination, you may be thinking. Oh contraire, my friend. Julie Rico, long time local gallery owner has made art as accessible and affordable as well…hot dogs. The dichotomy is a beautiful thing. Imagine messily chowing down on one of Julie's signature hot dogs while observing the intricate strokes and creative genius of the local downtown artists’ paintings. The favorite, “LA’s Hottie” hot dog is brimming with Julie's homemade chili, jalapenos, cheddar cheese and bacon for $4. Another Weeneez specialty that rarely makes a blip on the LA menu radar screen is their Chili Chips or from my part of the world, Frito pie—a gooey bowl of Frito chips, chili, melted cheese and onions. To wash down your dog, a wine bar is opening soon in the gallery. Weeneez' décor is congruent with the light-hearted attitude of its owner. The bubble-gum colored booths and bright yellow tables add a whimsical, child-like feel to the experience. Julie says she picked the pink booth color because the rosy hue makes people look better—another of her small ways to make people at ease with art. Even in our economic crisis, anyone could afford a painting as Julie encourages her artists to sell their creations at moderate prices, from $15$300. Weeneez and the Julie Rico Gallery is a place where relishing art and relishing the relish on your hot dog is synonymous.

DESIGNCRITIC WORDS OLIVER O.

Cole’s French Dip DIP ON LOS ANGELES! Downtown bar guru and visionary Cedd Moses has done it again. Resurrecting Cole’s French Dip restaurant from the grave of near extinction to a born again restoration of the original 1908 version, it has opened in a timely fashion for its 100th anniversary. With the help of designer Ricki Kline who specializes in classic architecture and time blending, they peeled back the thick layers of paint and wallpaper to discover the Anaglypta ceiling patterns, cleaned the original penny-cut tiles, and replaced the motheaten stuffed deer’s head. Over a year of reconstruction and a million dollars and some change later, old-timers and hip local industrialists are happily dipping their finely sliced beef, lamb or pork sandwiches while seated in rich maroon booths illuminated by original beehive lamps. Shying away from the men with the big knives at the carving station near the entrance, I shimmy up to the 40 foot mahogany bar with golden chandelier lighting and heart of the dark basement restaurant. The bartender dressed in serious black vest and tie recommends a few house cocktails dating back to the pre-Prohibition years. New York cocktail-chef legend Sasha Petraske included vintage drinks like the Sazerac, the Old-Fashioned, Negroni, and even Hemingway’s drink of choice — Death in the Afternoon. The spirit of Jimmy, bartender of Cole’s for over 60 years, is honored by black and white photos of him tending bar in his prime. As the original Cole’s was the first restaurant in downtown Los Angeles and across the street from the old Pacific Stock Exchange, it is fitting the bar is dressed with 34

the original sign titled, “The Professionals”. The wooden, hand-painted sign lists its most loyal stockbroker customers of the 1920's (in less polite terms, the ones who probably spent more time investing in drunkenness than in annuities). As I sip my perfectly mixed Manhattan, perusing the 5x7 single-sided menu, I am calmed. Too often in LA restaurants, menu options are as bamboozling as a Chemistry textbook. At Cole’s, the inventor of the French Dip, you have two choices: type of meat, type of cheese and bam — a meal appears within minutes. To simplify it even further, do not pass go or collect $200, just get the lamb with blue cheese — it is divine. And I don't care if you're on your New Year's resolution diet- you must not leave without a bite of the bourbon pecan pie made by Grace's pastry chef. Sometimes things are better cleaned up and polished than demolished and remade - Cole’s French Dip is a prime example of this. It is not a “Disneyland” (as I call them) or concept designed restaurant but an experience that will connect you to the historical soul of Los Angeles. 118 E. 6th St., Los Angeles Open till 2 a.m. Wed-Sat www.colesfrenchdip.com

LASTORY WORDS T. M. HUNTER

TIS THAT TIME AGAIN… I’ve spent more time in Chinese communities in recent years, so for me personally January 1 has become a soft landing when it comes to the shock of a brand new, empty year. But somewhere in January, letting West and East standards of time merge (as if anyone else in the universe would care what number we put on our rotating globe), there is some spark, some notion of, if not new, then at least the option to renew the contract with life. First of all, let’s look at the numbers. If numerology is any guidance, the past year, 2008, would come to a prime number 1 (2+8=10=1). Which would have made it a beginner’s year. I felt the whole year through in 2008 that this was the true introduction to a new Century. We got off light in 2000, when no computers crashed or nuclear weapons were sent erroneously into the air. Remember the panic that drove markets lower in the end days of the old Millennium? What followed that New Year’s day was merely the quiet humming of the desktops and laptops on our desks, effortlessly dealing with any software glitches on the first morning of the year 2000, and I guess we collectively took that as an endorsement to keep living our lives as if nothing would ever change. But underneath our feet, deep in the earth, and high above us, in the constellations of the cosmos, things were already moving and shifting and put in motion and hence, as we entered 2008, there it was; a delayed, but true beginning of the Atomic Age, with hopefully a chance after being well over a hundred years into the discoveries of Quantum Physics, to start truly implementing these findings into our own lives. The 1 stands in numerology for the beginning, after the completion of a cycle; it offers a wide open space, with lots of challenges and possibilities. But of course, first the old order would have to fall away before a new space could be revealed. It was pointed out to me a long time ago, that industries and politicians that insist on using energy sources that were created in the era of Dinosaurs, would be condemned to live like these prehistoric animals, and possibly perish like them, suffocating under their own

Oh Let the Saints Go Marching In!

weight, further helped into oblivion by a few well timed meteorites. I’m confident that one day we will look at the Industrial Revolution and Age, with no less pity than viewing the ancient muscle power generated by ox and cart. So here we are; the year 2009, which would offer us the prime number 2 (2+9=11=2); a lot of the old structures have already fallen in the past year, and this year, as there is less and less support and foundation left under the old, changes can move even faster. So room for more panic, or excitement, that all depends on how you choose to look at life. Personally I’d say… go fast! Go faster! If a site has to be demolished to make space for an exciting new structure, why hold vigils at the old, rotting corpse? Bring in the bulldozers day and night, and don’t rest until the site is a beautiful, clean, empty pit, full of potential and ready to receive the new. The ‘new’ can be as much a new way of thinking as a physical change. For example, I noticed that a whole stretch of the – former? – hotbed of interior design and fashion along West Hollywood’s Melrose Boulevard sits empty. What are the landlords going to do? Let the spaces sit idle, absorb the costs, and hope for better days, while the risk that the remaining infrastructure of stores, businesses and restaurants will slowly disintegrate as well? Or let young entrepreneurs with fresh ides move into those sad abandoned storefronts and work in more creative ways together; in partnership, where the monthly rent is calculated as a percentage of sales rather than a strict dogmatic old representation of value..? That would be a marvelous example of a practical application of Quantum Physics; energies merge and change in a fluent non-static movement, constantly adapting to change. This then brings me to my intention, which I hope will have the power to become a resolution that will be sustained: Let everything that no longer belongs disappear, so what’s meant to be can come in and the space will be there to receive the new. As I suspect that the majority of readers of this publication are in one way or another inspired by creativity, I wish all of them this: That creativity may become their true drive this year; that it will become the engine that inspires all things, and from which all other things will emerge; joyfully, harmonically and abundantly.

MISE-EN-SCENE WORDS APARNA BAKHLE-ELLIS

A CINEMA OF ENIGMA: CHARLIE KAUFMAN’S

Synechdoche, New York Films and dreams have been linked together for ages. The film industry is commonly known as “the dream factory.” Film theorists use the term “oneiric,” which means “pertaining to dreams,” to refer to the depiction of dreamlike states in film, or to the use of the metaphor of a dream or the dream-state to analyze a film. Andre Breton, the French surrealist, argued that when viewing a film, viewers enter a state between being “...awake and falling asleep.” Perhaps hovering upon this threshold is also what makes dreams enigmatic, as we sleep yet imagine ourselves awake. Films, being products of much more logical systems than our psyches, are usually less mysterious, unless they veer into the territory of Art. Then, all bets are off. 38

FA B R I K


Puzzling, ambiguous, inexplicable are just some of the words also used to describe award-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman’s directorial debut of Synechdoche, New York. While the film clearly announces it is the work of an auteur, ironically, or perhaps fittingly, an artist whose work skewers our culture's inability to distinguish truth from lies is all too often greeted with derision by critics as well as a public catered to by more blatant illusion than this film. Incidentally, back in 2004, Kaufman was identified by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. That should warrant hearing what he has to say, even if it's out of context.

“…I think a lot of what happens in the movie business is accepted: This is a product, and this will be marketed, and it will make people feel a certain way, and it'll leave the theater, and it'll go through a series of steps that are predetermined and formulaic. That precludes the possibility that you're going to create a work of art or a work that's expansive, and so I take that out of the equation, because I want something to be expansive, and because I feel people put crap into the world constantly in the media and in politics and in all sorts of public areas. And they lie. They constantly lie, and that creates a cynical, suspicious, alienated population of people, and I don't want to participate in it. I want to do something that, for whatever it's worth, maybe nothing, is at least what I think about things. And maybe that's help-

ful to somebody.

— From an Interview with Charlie Kaufman http://www.avclub.com/content/interview/charlie_kaufman/2 Rather than give a plot summary when so many are easily retrievable with a short search through your preferred search engine, I'll try describing my still unfolding experience of watching this brilliantly conceived cinematic enigma. I felt the film within me, as if it had virally invaded my consciousness, to become a part of my story. I wanted to talk about it. I wanted friends to see it. So we could discuss it. Wait, did I FA B R I K

have those kinds of friends…if not, why? Why didn't I know more people who could appreciate this black humor? I wanted to think the ponderous thoughts, which kept me silently alone, out loud and preferably to enthusiastic audiences. How did he make this film… just to get out those ideas so succinctly… he succeeded in truthfully rendering the process of creating. I marvel at the 140-minute conversation Kaufman invites us to empathize with. Lyrically absurdist, insistently existential and excruciatingly human, thank you Charlie Kaufman, for keeping artistic courage alive. No, Caden (the "everyman" theater director perfectly played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) didn't jump. It's a crucial distinction. Truly ethical lives appear to be lived by so few, since most lack the stamina to engage its terms fully. Chris Hedges, the Pulitzer-prize winning reporter and Senior Fellow at the Nation Institute, has argued that the majority of America resides in a post-literate society where “those who are best at artifice succeed… In an age of images and entertainment, in an age of instant emotional gratification, we do not seek or want honesty.” Kaufman's film gives us a deeply flawed protagonist whose attempts to make the world conform to his artistic and personal desires fail miserably by standards of success that judge the ability to think independently, express dissent, and be self-critical, as suspect. Tricksters, or gods of mischief, are needed in times like these, times where so many of us eschew the very cultural artifacts that force us to examine ourselves, and our society. Kaufman disrupts the logic of the traditional Hollywood narrative. By doing so, he astutely lays bare the very trappings of culture and art that ensnare us. He does not entertain us as much as infect us by our horror of failure. And yet, for those of us who choose to accept, this film offers gifts. To emerge, from the creative process, with material evidence of a fertile source, one must submit to the idiosyncratic nature of imagination. It is a lonesome journey. And although helpers sometimes appear along the way, the creative spirit must persevere alone to arrive at the precise location where meaning is made. By choosing cinema as his vehicle, Kaufman embraces a democracy of sorts. His film basks in a novelist's ideas, executed within the economy of a creative factory that entices dreamers and hopers to the never-ending possibilities of talent, once realized. There are many potential dreams. With Synechdoche, New York, Kaufman suggests we might benefit from diversifying our interests.

ARTHIGHLIGHTS WORDS PETER FRANK

LA ART SHOW & ART LA LA ART SHOW: JANUARY 21 – 25; LA CONVENTION CENTER ART LA: JANUARY 23 – 25; BARKER HANGAR AT THE SANTA MONICA AIRPORT JANUARY IS “ARTS MONTH” in our fair town, an appellation that has resulted from, rather than prompted, the fact that three major art fairs take place between Xmas and Groundhog Day. Photo LA has already happened, but enthusiasts of the photograph will be further able to satisfy their jones in the two multi-media fairs cropping up right after the inauguration. Art fairs are commercial trade meets, ones in which participating emporia hope to make a lot of money, off visitors and off one another, directly or indirectly. Now, you hardly need to be reminded, is not an especially good time to make money, but art dealers (among others) are hoping for an Obama’s-president-yo! bounce that helps them at least earn back their overhead. It could happen; the reports out of last month's multi-mega-fairathon in Miami were, er, not discouraging. Our art scene, already rife with gallery closings, could use the good news. But that’s not your worry. For you, the LA Art Show and ART LA are opportunities to see a hell of a lot of art under two roofs, and perhaps to shop for something substantial to hang on the living room wall. Together featuring almost 200 galleries from around the world and around the block, either of the two fairs can easily induce a visual OD – or, conversely, an addiction to art. In the long run, though, they ultimately amplify rather than sate one's hunger for visual stimulation. The hipoisie gravitate to ART LA; previously ensconced in Santa Monica’s civic center, the smaller of the two fairs has moved across town to the city airport's Barker Hangar, where it continues to collate cutting-edge art from Melbourne and Hong Kong, Berlin and Brussels, Mexico City and Culver City. The LA Art Show, for its part, has grown to more than twice ART LA's size, and has had to vacate the Barker Hangar for the downtown Convention Center. The pickins here are more diverse, embracing not only post-modernism but postimpressionism, traditional art from the far east and the far west, Picasso, Pop, and performance, featured by galleries hailing from Korea and Connecticut, Düsseldorf and Denver, Buenos Aires and Boston. Fifteen of those galleries specialize in prints, and display their wares in a fairwithin-a-fair sponsored by the International Fine Print Dealers’ Association. 50

LA Art Show

The funnest time to visit the fairs is during the opening-night benefit gala; you're out several times what general admission would cost, but you get a beat on other buyers, and a face-full of killer food and booze to boot (although you may have to eat and drink standing up). Besides, your extra fare goes into the coffers of LACMA, MOCA, and Inner City Arts. And you know how they’re hurting. LA Art Show: Opening Night Gala, Wednesday, Jan. 21, 7-10:30 pm (V.I.P. Preview 6-7 pm) General Hours: Thursday-Saturday, Jan. 22-24, 11 am-8 pm, Sunday, Jan. 25. 11 am-5 pm ART LA: Opening Night Gala, Thursday, Jan. 22, 6:30-10:30 pm General Hours: Friday-Saturday, Jan. 23-24, 11 am-7 pm, Sunday, Jan. 25, 11 am-6 pm. For more information on the many lectures, workshops, and miscellaneous events, during and after the opening nights and to purchase tickets, check out the fairs’ Websites. There are multiple-day passes available to both fairs, and advance-purchase tickets are also cheaper in both cases: LA Art Show: http://www.laartshow.com ART LA: http://www.artfairsinc.com/artla/2009

THE GETTY VILLA AND NORTON SIMON MUSEUM

Hearst the Collector

Jim Dine: Poet Singing (The Flowering Sheets) THE GETTY VILLA

THRU FEB. 1

THE CATALOGUE CALLS William Randolph Hearst the “most flamboyant and controversial American art collector of all time.” Considering what other Americans have been in that race, such a declaration can raise an eyebrow - without inspiring respect for Hearst. But “Hearst the Collector” demonstrates that the man - who was inarguably one of the most flamboyant and controversial Americans of all time - was a passionate collector with a gargantuan appetite and, more notably, keen eye. Like any self-respecting tycoon collector, Hearst had armies of experts on the lookout for him. But he was smart enough to get really good experts, to trust them, and to trust his own preferences equally, in other words, to work with his people as intellectual equals. The exhibition ranges all over the map - map of the world, that is, especially the western world, from ancient Greek kraters to Renaissance stained-glass windows to 19th century paintings, all of them museum quality. Most, in fact, have been borrowed back from the museums where they wound up. LACMA is one of the luckier such museums, the recipient of several donations while the local mega-millionaire was still alive and changing the décor in any of his many mansions and of several more after he died. But pieces also wound up in the Metropolitan, the Louvre, the National Gallery, and who knows where else.

Actually, the hunt for Hearst's treasure makes an engaging story in and of itself, and it's told well in the show (and even better in the sumptuous catalogue). After all, in his twilight the guy was thought of as a rich, eccentric boor, more imperious but less interesting than Howard Hughes. Turns out Hearst was not a wholesale consumer of egregious fakes but a discriminating collector who knew what he wanted, needed, and had, on top of his art no less than his business empire, and conversant in as many different realms. Resultingly, the show is full of delightful revelations; visiting it is like stumbling into a provincial museum in, say, Belgium whose collection isn't quite encyclopedic, but ranges widely and offers surprise after surprise.

THRU FEB. 9

Ruth Weisberg: Guido Cagnacci and the Resonant Image NORTON SIMON MUSEUM THRU MARCH 2

OUR MUSEUMS – and many others around the country and the world – have taken to inviting contemporary artists in to rummage among their collections and respond to what they find in their own work. The latest results are rewardingly curious. Jim Dine, long associated with Pop art (thanks to the images of tools and bathrobes and such that populated his early paintings), is actually much more of a neo-neo-classicist; letting him loose in the Getty Villa seems only appropriate, then, and he alit upon several terracotta figures from ancient Greece, dancers, muses, and the mythic musician Orpheus playing a (since-disappeared) lyre. These he has replaced and replicated in a second-floor gallery - in which he has also placed an immense self-portrait head. Dine, long a writer as well as visual artist, has also filled the walls with a handwritten poetic narrative, one that seamlessly ties together his musings on timelessness and timefulness. Enlivening the installation further with the sound of his voice reciting the writing, Dine returns here to the environments and happenings of his youth – as well as the environments and “happenings,” real and imagined, of ancient times. Ruth Weisberg also conflates her life with the story and imagery in the artwork she gravitated to in the Norton Simon Museum. Influenced profoundly by the Italian Baroque in her expressively realist painting, Weisberg took inspiration from Guido Cagnacci's Martha Rebuking Mary for Her Vanity, a large, lucid, and typically stagy allegorical painting notable for the vivacity of its figures. In particular, Mary - Mary Magdalene, that is could pass for a young woman posing for a class at, say, Art Center College or Weisberg's own USC. Employing her distinctively graphic style, in which the presence of figures is described with contouring and modeling on a granular, near-monochrome field, Weisberg realized numerous variations on the picture, playing with the foreground and background figures, the architectural details, and so forth. In several large studies, Weisberg switches out Cagnacci's models for her own; her son's girlfriend, no less, plays Mary and Weisberg casts herself as Martha. I wouldn't have wanted to be Weisberg's son at the show's opening, but Weisberg's approach rivets art historians, philosophers, theologians, and gossips alike.

t FABRIK RECOMMENDED Tierney Gearon, showing for the first time in California (Feb. 19-April 25), produces double-exposure photographs whose juxtapositions are startlingly logical and yet incongruous. Such jumps in reality can easily be achieved in, say, Photoshop, but Tearney realizes them the old-fashioned way, by leaving exposed film in the camera, re-shooting, and developing the film without digital or even darkroom intervention. The ghostly grace of the superpositions makes it clear that they are analog, 52

t FABRIK RECOMMENDED For fourteen years artist John O'Brien ran the Brewery Project in a large, creaky space at the back of the Brewery artists' colony north of downtown. Some of Los Angeles' most prominent and/or adventurous artists displayed work in, created work for, and even organized shows of their friends throughout that space. Now, at the Brewery Project, 1993-2007: the Finale takes a sample (through March 7) of what O'Brien and his cohorts wrought in their inspiringly funky aerie. More than 50 artists fill the Armory with an eye-popping array of work in various media, attesting to the nearly perverse liveliness of visual thinking in this town.

FABRIK RECOMMENDED Long a provocative presence in Sacramento, David E. Stone has been mixing things up in the LA art world of late, with his Another Year in LA art space and his own conceptually oriented work. The latter gets a little bit of a retrospective here, through Feb. 7, looking especially at Stone’s reflections on the mediation of sight in our (post-)modern world. Make sure to check out those photographs of TV captures and such, though, because you'll be immediately riveted by the neon sign proclaiming “eventually you will die and be unable to read this.” CHERRY AND MARTIN 12611 Venice Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90066 (310) 398-7404 http://www.cherryandmartin.com 54

t FABRIK RECOMMENDED A nearly forgotten figure long before his death in 1995, Robert Dowd took American paper money as the subject of his paintings. Despite his often surreal or even expressionist interpretations of currency, his focus on such a banal subject clearly put him under the Pop Art rubric. This re-examination of Dowd's oeuvre, up through April 5, looks not only at what made him Pop, but what made him something else as well.

FABRIK RECOMMENDED One of Los Angeles' leading photographers - and that's saying a lot - John Divola here presents selections (through March 7) from series both recent and vintage. The older work, from the “Vandalism” series, is the stuff - the ruined domestic spaces, spectacularly marred with spray paint with which Divola first made his mark. Divola returns to spraying walls in the work from the recent “Dark Star” series, only this time it's huge, solid circles in a variety of odd spaces.

with some more recent work (by such artists as Terry Winters, Kiki Smith, Enrique Chagoya, and Lisa Yuskavage). Would that the selection - and the gallery - were five times as large!

t FABRIK RECOMMENDED Moira Hahn engages traditional Japanese artistic styles in her clever and narratives and commentaries. In her lates show, through Feb. 28, Hahn as much marries Aesop to Hokusai, staging morality tales with anthropomorphized animals in colorful robes and obis. Actually, the stories are Hahn's own, based in part on her observations of animal behavior, and the Japanese art she takes off on was the Meiji-era ukiyo-e of Chikanobu, Zeshin, et. al., but you get the picture: these are the diametric opposite of anime.

t FABRIK RECOMMENDED Pablo Picasso is doubtless the most photographed artist ever - yes, even more than Warhol. Any number of portrait, journalist, and art photographers made Picasso a specialty of theirs. Egoistic but also sympathetic with other artists, Picasso tended to give them free rein, at least for awhile. Lucien Clergue forged a particular bond with the artist, rather more informal than, say, David Douglas Duncan's, and thus less documentary and more family-album-ish. Clergue's photos, on view through March 21, linger less on Picasso the legend and more on Picasso the captivating old guy, a charmer who worked hard to make his own happiness infectious.

TECHNOcraft Objects are works which are made with industrial materials and/or methods. These works make a practice of finding the commonalities between seemingly disparate elements, thereby revealing delicate narratives. Subtly stirring, the fragile balance between opposites and the relationships that exist between them, us, and each other is questioned and illustrated.

FABRIK RECOMMENDED Much loved as a teacher in Los Angeles and much respected around the country for his mildly experimental, intensely affecting pictures, Todd Walker masterfully exploited the solarization process to give his images - primarily of human figures - a dreamy other-worldliness. The luminous fog of the process unmoors the figures from any specific context, allowing them to float like ghosts or heavenly bodies through obscured infinitudes. These and works in other techniques comprise a show (ending Feb. 21) designed to rescue Walker from the obscurity into which his reputation has sunk since his death in 1998.

t FABRIK RECOMMENDED Leonard Edomndson and Emerson Woelffer are described in the press material as “Two Pillars of the Los Angeles Art Community,” and it should be stressed that they were pillars - especially of


ART GALLERIES & MUSEUMS abstraction - at a time when the local art world was small, private, and neglected by the larger public except as an object of mild ridicule. Works on paper, especially prints, by both artists comprise the survey here (on view through March 27), contrasting Edmondson's post-cubist intricacies with the bold abstract expressionism of Woelffer.

t FABRIK RECOMMENDED The latest shows at this unpredictable space, running through Feb. 21, bring together the veteran Los Angeles painter, printmaking, quiltmaker, collagist and assemblagist Harriet Zeitlin with Margaret and Christine Wertheim, who pursue the artistic representation of scientific concepts as the Institute for Figuring. For more than three decades Zeitlin has addressed humanist concerns by exploiting a wide range of media, while the Wertheim twins - one an artist, one a scientist - have been collaborating for barely four years. But in inspiring a far-flung network of collaborators to help with their Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef, a knitted conceptual representation of the ecologically stressed Great Barrier Reef in northeastern Australia, the Wertheims continue Zeitlin's level of social commitment and dedication.
