BOB POE’S HAPPY
WORDS CRAIG STEPHENS IMAGES COURTESY OF BOB POE
FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER Bob Poe is an anomaly on numerous levels in today’s art world. After purchasing a first generation Apple iPhone two years ago, Poe, an autodidactic and successful entrepreneur, made the intrepid move to embrace a full-time career as a fine arts photographer, opening his own gallery – Bob Poe Photography – at Santa Monica's salubrious Bergamot Station after strolling in one afternoon on a whim to find a vacant space. Now a recognizable figure in the increasingly legitimate genre of cell-phone art photography, Poe's entry to the world of fine art is as miraculous as his near overnight realization. The process began after he accidentally shot several photographs on his new iPhone. While he says he was initially inclined to delete them, he later decided they were of artistic value. This, in turn, inspired him to devote all his time to his new craft and seek out a suitable venue to display his blossoming portfolio. Poe, a business development manager with a thriving telecommunications company, was so inspired by the photographic process, and a certainty he could nurture a successful art career, that he decided opening his own gallery wasn't such a premature thing, more something that would ensure he pursued his new creative outlet. “My entry into fine art photography was entirely happenstance. A couple of years ago I purchased an iPhone the very day it came on the market and just started snapping away. I simply started playing and came up with some interesting images. I took a picture with very blurry types of images and rather than delete them, I decided they were very artistic. At first I was going to delete them because they really weren't up to scratch, then I decided to keep them and tinker with them. I ended up with several abstract works and from there I decided this could be a really great thing to do as an artist overall.” Bob says his happy accident then became increasingly sophisticated. “Initially I started printing on paper, then I opted for canvas. I like the way printing on canvas offers a real painterly quality. I tried a number of surfaces including plexiglass, though nothing offered the warmth and organic quality of canvas. I'm settled on it now, as I like the way the colors are, and the way the images reproduce.” Asked about his work's evolution, and his stylistic and thematic progression, he reveals, “My work reflects a painterly vision of everyday subjects that exceed the original intention of the photograph. I currently employ the use of an iPhone camera, both for its accessibility and ease of use. What was initially viewed as a benign collection of subjects and locations has become an instrument that allows me to discover, and allows an audience to discover, the complexities that lay just beneath their surface.” “The spontaneous nature of the iPhone lets me capture images that, when viewed at length, display curious juxtapositions, symbolism and humor. As each photograph unfolds, it offers viewers an opportunity to apply their own personal, artistic and philosophical interpretation. Unintentional visual distortions resulting from the iPhone’s inherent limitations provide a playful temperament to much of my work, and add ambiguity to otherwise straightforward images.” 10

Poe says his subject matter includes anything that strikes him as unusual, quirky, or that can evoke multiple interpretations. “I haven't actually had any formal arts training apart from some assignments with black and white photography during high school. The majority of my work is improvisational, as the iPhone allows me to take quick and impulsive photographs. The absence of a heavy camera and equipment is liberating, and permits me to capture a moment in its authentic form.” “I work in large-scale reproductions of my photographs because I believe this format displays each piece's subtleties, richness and depth. The canvas also provides a dramatic backdrop for an image that is usually viewed on a very small device.” “My most recent work explores the role of discovery in the artistic process. Specifically, how the iPhone's lack of shutter speed and aperture control” - which frustrates many of its users – or “an accidental finger over its lens, can create powerful and beautiful images.” In terms of his broader creative vision Bob claims he ultimately wants to encourage his audience to pursue their own artistic endeavors, “for pure enjoyment or for further discovery of the artist within themselves.” 14

This is a stark contrast to his former high ranking corporate career where Poe spent over 20 years in the broadcast industry, developing pioneering media initiatives for a variety of clients. He was the Director of Broadcasting for the Orlando Magic, and cultivated a strong fan base for the team when it was founded in 1989. Most notably, he was General Manager of WMMO, a breakthrough radio station in Florida that provided quality, uninterrupted music programming for adult listeners. His efforts earned him the prestigious Radio Wayne Award for General Manager of the Year and earned WMMO the Radio Station of the Year award from Billboard.

ICONOCLAST WORDS SUSAN STROH IMAGES COURTESY OF SHELDON FIGOTEN
Sheldon Figoten PAINTER
It is certainly pleasant to step into Sheldon Figoten’s 1920’s upstairs studio in Mid-Wilshire and be bathed in light flooding in through windows on two sides, but it’s more than exciting to view paintings which emit a powerful light of their own— paintings using pure color and forms created by oil paint poured on stretched canvas rolled with acrylic emulsion. Figoten has honed his own painterly vision to an elegant minimalism. As a dedicated abstract painter for 39 years, Sheldon Figoten’s knowledge of the LA art scene is encyclopedic. He studied art at UCLA and The Art Institute in San Francisco. And when he met Ed Moses of the Ferus Group, he was persuaded to move to Los Angeles where he has created a huge body of work. Intrigued by his work and history, I wanted to talk further with Sheldon and we met at his home in Venice to find out about his journey as an artist: including key influences and how his painting challenges the viewer. 16
FA B R I K
FABRIK: What inspired you to become an artist and when? Sheldon Figoten (SF): My parents were working class, Jewish immigrants from Latvia and Russia, so we had no library and they weren’t interested in art. But I had a friend in high school who was taking a correspondence course in commercial and fine art. He invited me to his house one day, where his parents had allowed him to convert a porch into his studio. I stepped into that studio and was hooked—loving the smell, the atmosphere. My friend gave me a few tubes of paint and away I went. As an undergraduate student at UCLA, I took art history courses, marking the beginning of a lifelong study. I was awestruck attending a retrospective of Henri Matisse—stunned by the crudeness, the directness, the expressiveness. It didn’t look like anything I thought painting should be—it was sophisticated and primitive at the same time. “The Dance,” from MOMA knocked me out! Another of his paintings, the more abstract “Open Window, Collioure” was a framed black rectangle and had very few references in the painting. I think that particular painting even scared Matisse, but it left a deep impression on me. Kurt Von Meir, an art critic for a New York art magazine, came to the West Coast to teach a modern art class at UCLA. Excited about the LA art scene, he insisted we go out and see it. We used Art Forum Magazine for one of our class texts. I visited the Nicholas Wilder Gallery and The Irving Blum Gallery. At these two galleries you could see the best of New York and Los Angeles art. Those two venues, especially, provided an immense education.
FA B R I K
FABRIK: What did you learn about the difference between East and West Coast artists? SF: In New York, the abstract painters were traditional and formalistic—paint on canvas. In LA, there were two schools of modern art: the classicists, who were the older, erudite easel painters who did hard-edged planar abstractions. They were the gentlemen. The Ferus group were the Venice guys—hip, experimental and into new processes and materials. I became intrigued by those possibilities, some of which were seen in John McCracken planks, Larry Bell boxes, and Ron Davis fiberglass paintings. FABRIK: What did you do after studying art in college? SF: I wound up going to dental school in San Francisco 1966 to1970, taking classes at the Art Institute and painting every spare minute. But when I graduated I knew painting was what I wanted to do. Practicing dentistry would allow me the time, means and freedom to continue to paint. I left town and set up a studio in Weaverville, Northern California and started to paint abstract painting full time. European painters traditionally go to The Louvre and copy the masters but I thought I’d copy a Frank Stella painting. Of course, it didn’t wind up like his and I was off on my first group of paintings using commercial Rustoleum black and metallic paints—a lot slicker than Frank Stella’s work! I was drawn to people using new materials and processes, inventing new forms and structures—all part of the legacy of the Ferus group. Then I saw this show in SF, called “California, The Modern Era” and for the first time I saw a group of paintings by John McLaughlin and was ready to understand and connect with them. I wanted to learn more about McLaughlin and that led me to The Archives of American Art housed in The De Young Museum (now housed in The Huntington). They had received his papers from his estate and I was lucky enough to go over them before interviewing his wife, Florence, in his house and studio. So in 1980, I wrote and published an article about him which led to more writing and reviewing. As a consequence of my interest in McLaughlin, I was introduced to Ed Moses by art dealer Daniel Weinberg, who had helped open doors for me in my research on McLaughlin. Ed came up to San Francisco preparing for a show. I happened to bring in a couple of paintings to show Dan. Dan said, ‘I’ve been telling you about this young guy inspired by McLaughlin, come take a look at his stuff.’
Ed looked at my poured and irregular, not hard-edged vocabulary and said ‘I like that pecker track right there!’ (Laughs) (Meaning a visceral mark, organic, not refined!) That was the start of our friendship. Interviewing Ed for The American Archives and getting to know him opened my window to the Ferus artists. He told me stories about each one. Ed and I have followed each other’s work for 28 years. He has influenced me most importantly in his attitude towards change, openness and freedom. Not many painters are as fluid as Ed—he’s
FA B R I K
one of the great ones. He’s been enormously generous in his attention and I’ve been lucky enough to travel with him. In 1990, he had a show in Japan and took me along. Ed knew how much Japanese pottery meant to me and we both were able to see wonderful local pottery villages and museums. My work has been strongly influenced by Japanese pottery. The old stuff is the best—natural, unforced, unselfconscious, it moves me tremendously. There were scholar potters, but I loved the tradition of the farmer potters who learned century after century how to make the shapes and had to make their water storage jars and bowls during the winter. The attitudes inherent in those pieces have seeped into my paintings and freed me. FABRIK: In what way? SF: There’s a direct action when you pour paint—you don’t mess with it, whatever happens, there’s the acceptance of what the paint does and wants to do, how it runs and where it runs. I make abstract paintings in as clear and direct and truthful a fashion as I can. FABRIK: What effect do you want your paintings to have? SF: I hope to engage the viewer through this immediate sensory experience, not to please or entertain or to make something simply beautiful, but to create an imbalance, to challenge the viewer’s perceptual sense, throwing people off a little to put them into a state of active contemplation. I hope the paintings provide a stimulus that is about questions, not answers. The freedom in abstract painting is that the viewer can provide his or her own meaning, own sense of order, if need be. McLaughlin said, “I don’t want to tell the viewer who I am but want to let the viewer find out who the viewer is.” I agree. FABRIK: And what do you hope for in the future? SF: Most importantly, I look forward to continuing to work, to show and sell my work more than I have in the past—giving me greater personal freedom.

DESIGNING HOPE WORDS LANEE NEIL IMAGES COURTESY OF THE SKID ROW HOUSING TRUST
IN SKID ROW Although Los Angeles has the highest homeless population in the U.S, the non-profit organization Skid Row Housing Trust is a major reason why homelessness is on the decline in our city. Skid Row Housing Trust (SRHT) has tirelessly endeavored for twenty years to provide permanent supportive housing to homeless people in downtown Los Angeles by remodeling older hotels and building contemporary apartment buildings. By hiring some of Los Angelesâ€™ most prestigious architecture firms like Koning Eizenberg, Michael Maltzan, Killefer Flammang and Lorcan O'Herlihy, they are transforming the fabric of Skid Row, one life at a time, to a functioning community living in well-designed, visually pleasing housing with access to on-site services like social workers and health care professionals. Fabrik Magazine talked with SRHT and architect Michael Maltzan about their recently completed downtown housing project at the corner of Hope Street and 17th, the six-story 95-unit Carver Apartment building.
SKID ROW TRUST INTERVIEW: FABRIK: Why did you choose Michael Maltzan as the architect for the Carver Apartments?
Skid Row Housing Trust (SRHT): The Trust chose Michael Maltzan Architecture (MMA) as the architect on the new Carver Apartments as a contemporary solution to a challenging site located in a challenging location. The site was irregularly shaped, on a lonely street, sat next to freeway and lastly, the site was on top of a methane zone. Michael Maltzan was clearly challenged by the site, but achieved success in being able to provide a balance between contemporary design, density and open space, while simultaneously mitigating noise and pollution and connecting the building to the exterior environment. The New Carver Apartments is the second building the Trust commissioned Michael Maltzan Architecture todesign for us. FABRIK: What were his guidelines and budget?
SRHT: MMAâ€™s first and foremost guideline was to design a building that would provide as many new homes for homeless individuals as possible, while also seamlessly integrating into the neighborhood context. MMA was flexible in their guidelines as the project had to undergo a significantly burdensome entitlement process that also had to integrate design guidelines from the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles. Also, to a great extent, MMA had become familiar with the Trust's housing model from our previous partnership with MMA, the Rainbow Apartments. MMA built on the lessons learned from the
FA B R I K
Rainbow, and pushed the envelope of supportive housing further with the New Carver. The design budget for the New Carver was $750k. FABRIK: How many housing developments has Skid Row done in downtown?
SRHT: The New Carver Apartments are the 22nd apartment building developed by Skid Row Housing Trust. For the past twenty years the Trust has been rehabilitating existing historic residential hotels and building new permanent supportive housing developments for homeless men and women downtown. Since the organization was founded, we have been dedicated to providing stable homes for the most vulnerable men and women in our community. Our model is called permanent supportive housing because we combine affordable residential buildings where our residents can live as long as they need to with on-site supportive services and healthcare to restore our residents’ lives. FABRIK: How does the application process work for the tenants? How do you chose them and based on what?
SRHT: The Trust screens in, rather than screens out. We target the most vulnerable men and women living on the streets, who are individuals who have often spent years living on the streets and suffer from multiple disabling conditions. We target those individuals because we want our permanent supportive housing to have the greatest positive impact on our community. We know that we have the greatest impact both on our residents’ lives and our community when we reach out to the men and women who would be homeless but for the homes and support we provide. Residents moving into the New Carver will only be able to qualify if they are homeless, extremely low-income, and suffer from a physical disability, chronic disease, and/or mental illness. FABRIK: Is it rent free or low rent?
SRHT: The apartments at the New Carver include a rental subsidy provided by HUD’s Section 8 program. Residents will be asked to pay between 30 to 40% of their monthly income in rent. For example, many of our residents survive on General Relief benefits provided by the County of Los Angeles of $221 a month, which means they pay approximately $58 a month in rent for their apartment. FABRIK: When will they be moving in?
SRHT: We began accepting applications on Monday, October 5th. We hope that the first residents will move in by the end of October. FABRIK: Do you provide furniture/household items too?
SRHT: The apartments come furnished and with very basic household items. FABRIK: How do you think Skid Row Housing is changing or affecting the fabric of LA?
SRHT: Skid Row Housing Trust is committed to ending chronic homelessness by providing Web fabrikmagazine.com
FA B R I K
stable homes and support to the most vulnerable men and women on the streets. Our work both benefits our residents, but also the communities we work in. Downtown LA is a better community because there are fewer people on the streets because of our work and because we are improving blighted properties by building beautiful buildings. Additionally, by targeting the most vulnerable men and women on the streets we inspire others in our community to reach out by proving that no one is beyond help. FABRIK: What new projects do you have in the pipeline?
SRHT: The Trust will open the Charles Cobb Apartments in January 2010. The Cobb is designed by Kivotos Montenegro Partners and will provide 76 apartments for chronically homeless men and women. The Trust is scheduled to break ground on the New Genesis Apartments in November. The New Genesis is designed by Killefer Flammang Architects and will provide 106 apartments in the historic core of downtown. In addition to the New Genesis, we’re in pre-development on the Star Apartments with Michael Maltzan and the New Pershing with Killefer Flammang. The Trust is now working on a 3rd development with MMA, the Star Apartments, which will contain among other things, “prefab going up”. It will be the first time, in the City of Los Angeles, where prefabricated modular housing units will be stacked, up to 4 levels, and will sit on top of an existing concrete shell. The existing building is a shopping center on the ground floor with parking on the top. The development will reduce the impact to the environment by maintaining the majority of the structure and then utilizing prefab construction for additional stories. The Star is at the end of its design development phase and the Trust expects to begin construction by the end of 2010. FABRIK: How can an individual help out with Skid Row Housing?
SRHT: People can get involved in our work by visiting www.skidrow.org. There they can watch our residents’ stories, sign up for a tour, and learn about volunteer opportunities. They can also donate! Here are examples of how important donations are to our work: – $100 enables a formerly homeless person to receive healthcare for a month. – $300 provides case management for two months. – $500 brings two months of substance abuse recovery groups to Trust residents. – $800 delivers six months of mental health care to a formerly homeless person. – $1,000 allows a chronically homeless person to have daily access to a nurse. – $5,000 gives a homeless person a home for a year. FABRIK: Anything else you'd like to highlight about the Carver?
SRHT: One cool fact about the Carver is that it was supported by President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). ARRA funds both supported construction jobs and provided homes for the most vulnerable.
MICHAEL MALTZAN INTERVIEW: FABRIK: How do you think the Carver Apartment building has changed the landscape of downtown LA?
Michael Maltzan (MM): Once the building is occupied by tenants, we expect that the residential density will dramatically increase the amount of pedestrian traffic and street life in this particular section of downtown Los Angeles. One of the fundamental design concepts for the ground floor, courtyard and public spaces in the building involves weaving urban conditions and street views through the interior spaces – essentially connecting the life of the street and the life of the building. The residents are formerly homeless; experience suggests that when they lived on the streets, they tended to block out the urban experience, leading very private, inner lives out of survival necessity. Once these residents have a home, they have their own truly private spaces and can begin to reshape their public lives and re-enter a collective experience. As such, it's fundamentally important that the building foster a sense of urban liveliness, and that the design expresses this by connecting visually and perceptually to the local landscape at multiples scales. Conversely, the awakening of 95 new voices in the neighborhood has a tremendous potential to shift the character of life within the local community. FABRIK: How did designing a building that sits a few feet from the I-10 West freeway influence your design and how do you think it will affect the residents?
MM: We’re fortunate to have a site located directly along the I-10 West. While designing adjacent to the freeway meant that we had to deal with atypical acoustic requirements and undertake a significant amount of noise mitigation, the freeway also made it possible to create urban connections in unexpected ways. Residents engage the street life not only from within the ground floor public spaces. They have a courtyard with a grand stair connected to the street; they have dramatic views of the downtown skyline from the 6th level roof terrace; and they sit eye to eye with the freeway traffic when watching television or doing laundry at the level 3 community room. These connections not only embrace the dramatic urban qualities of the site, they bring a strong individual presence to a block that previously lacked human scale. FABRIK: One of the goals of Skid Row Trust is to bring a once hidden population into the public by integrating them into the community. How did that play into your design of the building?
MM: Formally, the building has tremendous potential to inflect the landscape of downtown LA. Viewed from the freeway and from afar, the faceted form articulates the scale of individual units within, and expresses a dynamic relationship between an urban fabric composed of individual lives, the texture of our collective experience, and the speed of the freeway. In dealing with such an underserved and often-neglected population, it’s intentional that we provide an architecture which embraces the urban landscape and brings visibility to its population.
FABRIK: It really is a striking building on par with other for-profit condo/apartment projects of downtown LA, how did you stay within the $750k budget and still make it look desirable, modern and artistic?
MM: Budget is always a challenge in any project. As the designers, itâ€™s significant to have a client who understands that their project needs a strong visual presence as well as a strong functional design, and is willing to embark on building a design with unique formal characteristics. Through experience with multiple projects for this developer, weâ€™ve learned the parameters, and continue to refine our sense of how to work within the ambitions of the budget. Understanding the rules of the typology allows us to push the vocabulary of the building in meaningful and ambitious ways. Given the constraints of this type of budget, we do rely substantially on the form of the building and the character of its spatial relationships to distinguish the design. FABRIK: What challenges did you face designing for the Skid Row Trust rather than for a client of a typical house or hotel?
MM: We always design with the client; in this case, the client is a not-for-profit developer who undertakes construction of multi-million dollar buildings serving a formally homeless population. In many ways, working with this type of developer is similar to working with an institution - we receive a program and work to build an understanding of the needs of the organization. Because the Housing Trust is both the developer of these projects and the long-term property manager, they are a direct conduit to our understanding the evolving needs and hopes of the tenants. We embrace the opportunity to address these specific needs, as well as to formalize the maturing ambitions of the service providers who serve the residents, through development of the common areas. FABRIK: Despite the challenges, do you feel rewarded as well by doing your part to alter a personâ€™s life through your design?
MM: Our effort is to create a building - to give form and shape, and to organize a coherent sequence of program relationships - that serves the goal of the client. In this type of project, one of the fundamental challenges is to understand the way that the building is operated. In doing so, we have the ability to respond to the client's needs, and as such, the opportunity to shape the interactions between the building's different occupants. In many ways, the building serves as a place where residents can reassemble their lives and social relationships. Therefore, in addition to creating individual living spaces - homes - for these tenants, there is real challenge and reward in creating spaces where the residents can interact with each other and the world in meaningful and new ways.

WALTER HOPPS Walter Hopps was clearly a visionary. The self-taught curator’s 2005 obituary in the Washington Post aptly observed: “Go back through his record, and it’s like a pounding drumbeat, first, first, first, first.” The former director of the Ferus Gallery and the Pasadena Museum of Art made great strides in promoting Los Angeles’ burgeoning art scene in the late 1950s and 60s. Famous for his laid back sense of time (the curator was notoriously late and given to disappearing for days at a time), Hopps was an “artist’s curator,” widely respected for his inventive thinking and lasting relationships with many of the artists whose work he promoted. Just as Hunter S. Thompson changed what it means to be a journalist, this so-called “gonzo curator” played a vital role in shaping the taste of the latter part of the twentieth century, presenting the first career retrospective of Marcel Duchamp at the Pasadena Museum in 1963 and introducing the work of Ed Ruscha, Barnett Newman, Joseph Cornell and R. Crumb to the American public.
EVE BABITZ Friend to Neil Young and Gram Parsons, former lover of Jim Morrison, goddaughter of Stravinsky…Eve Babitz knew everyone in LA in the 1960s and 70s and purchased Steve Martin his signature white suit to boot. She may be best known popularly for playing a game of chess nude with Marcel Duchamp during his retrospective at the Pasadena Museum of Art, but her legacy should belong to her writing. Babitz’s breathless, yet incisive roman a clefs possess a Proustian potency. No one explicates the significance of 1960s and 70s Los Angeles counterculture as brilliantly as she does. Her candid insights into LA living in Slow Times, Fast Company: The World, The Flesh and LA and Eve’s Hollywood place her in the ranks of great California writers like Joan Didion, Nathanael West and John Fante. And if her taut, moving prose isn't enough, the woman is cool. In the tradition of the best observer-participants, Babitz lives what she writes about and shares her stories with unabashed candor.
MIKE DAVIS Though his detractors have called him a “city-hating socialist,” Mike Davis has stayed in Los Angeles, despite the earthquakes, floods, riots and wildfires he describes in Ecology of Fear and Dead Cities, making vital contributions to academic life in Southern California through his teaching positions at Southern California Institute of Architecture; University of California, Irvine; and University of California, Riverside.

in the early 90s for his astute application of Marxist theory to issues in Los Angeles’ social policy, architecture and race relations. His book City of Quartz: Excavating the Future in Los Angeles has become a corner stone of urban studies and kindled international interest in studying Los Angeles as a quintessentially post-modern city.
JACK GOLDSTEIN Other than Las Vegas and Dubai, few cities are as spectacular as Los Angeles. It is only natural that the “Pictures Generation,” a group of young artists in the 70s and 80s working at the intersection of conceptualism and pop, began in Los Angeles. The Canadian-born, Los Angeles-bred Jack Goldstein worked at the forefront of this movement, which included art super-stars like Richard Longo, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Krueger and David Salle. Goldstein was a veteran of John Baldessari’s post-studio art MFA program at CalArts, which is largely credited for coaxing the nascent movement into existence with his emphasis on found photographs and mixed media experimentation. Goldstein’s influential work experienced a boom in the 1980s, only to be followed by years of relative obscurity until his death in 2005. Early works, like the film Metro-Goldwyn Mayer, which loops the MGM lions roar over a bright red background, distill images to their very essence. Goldstein’s diverse oeuvre, which includes performances, films, painting, photographs, form a coherent inquiry into the seductive power of the image and the nature of spectacle.
DAVID LYNCH David Lynch takes Bunker Hill’s noirish tales of women in trouble, young starlets and physical brutality and transports them to a nightmarish present in which dreams and reality collide in the canyons and flatlands of contemporary Los Angeles. Few can rival the free -floating, dreamlike malaise Lynch conjures in his films. The influence of his movies has extended far beyond the film industry. With Lynchmob, an exhibition of 30 international, emerging artists, Berlin based curators Emilie Trice and Christopher David sought to “‘invoke in the viewer the same psychological and emotional response as Lynch’s films.” It seems that Lynch himself is not above making work inspired by others. He created original photographs to accompany Danger Mouse’s album Dark Night of the Soul. 40

RICHARD NEUTRA British architectural critic/LA Enthusiast, Reyner Banham, aptly noted in his seminal book on Los Angeles that architect Richard Neutra’s buildings possessed a “Californianated” version of the “creative angst” of European modernism. Together with his longtime friend, Rudolph Schindler, Neutra is responsible for the architectural style casually known as California Modernism. His design aesthetic, which he deemed “nature-near” was a striking combination of geometric forms in glass and wood which emphasized surrounding natural elements, incorporating prototypically Californian concerns such as health and the fluidity between indoor and outdoor space. An exhibition of Neutra’s drawings and architectural sketches is on view at the central branch of the Los Angeles public library until September. Originally founded in 1926, his architectural practice has been presided over since 1970 by son and partner, architect Dion Neutra. This year, the firm celebrates its 83rd year in practice.

Millinery Confections HAT DESIGNS BY LOUISE GREEN WORDS BY JACKI APPLE PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALYSSA LAVINE
THIS PAGE: MODEL: LISA MARIE • DRESS: VINTAGE SONIA RYKIEL
T H E R E WA S A T I M E , way back in the 20th century, when a hat was de rigueur for any cosmopolitan woman or man, not merely for special occasions, but as an essential part of one’s wardrobe. In recent decades, real hats seemed to have been superseded by the handbag as the primary accessory. But hats are back with a different signification and status. (We’re not talking here about baseball caps, or those dreadful knit things, pulled down over greasy hair, that can only be called head coverings.) Hats are sexy! Unlike a bag, a hat frames the face. It can broadcast taste, style, glamour, confidence, originality, personality, wit, imagination. It can suggest courage or conformity, be playful or serious, flirtatious, seductive, bold or bashful. A hat is expressive. It sends a message, and in the dressed-down, anything goes, flip-flop and t-shirt uniformity of contemporary Los Angeles, designer and milliner Louise Green knows that a hat can make a statement that distinguishes you and sets you apart. And so do her legions of customers. From the celebrities who come to her for custom designed chapeaus, to the young and old fashionistas who flock to her sample sales, to the men who know a good fedora can set off a suit, or jeans, and turn heads. For Hollywood stylists, hip musicians, museum council ladies that lunch, and especially African-American Sunday church women, because nobody knows hats better, or wears them with greater panache than they do! When the British-born Green came to Los Angeles in the 1980s, she had the good fortune to fall under the tutelage of two women who were masters of custom-made fashion headwear – Mrs. King, and the late Wilma Rey Gordon who held hat-making gatherings in her View Park home. There, Green honed the high level of craft that is the foundation of her art. Green’s esthetic is romantic, elegant and witty. Vintage-inspired cloches and picture hats with shaped brims dominate her collections. But it is the imaginative combinations of color and materials in her trimmings – custommade silk flowers in an array of patterns and textures, leaves, grosgrains, embroidered ribbons, laces, feathers, touches of beading, or veiling – that distinguish her handmade couture designs. They make each hat an individual personal statement and conjure up just the right amount of cinematic fantasy. 50
FA B R I K
A stroll through the aisles of Green’s workroom reveals her vast collection of new and vintage textiles and accessories, and hat blocks from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. It reminded me of the back streets of the old Les Halles market neighborhood in Paris with its little shops housing dusty boxes of velvet flowers, antique ribbons, and exotic feathers, before it was bulldozed in the early 1970s. Green’s “fascinator” hats are an assemblage of trimmings atop a little clip-on headband that sits perched flirtatiously at a cocky angle. A must-have accessory, they add glamour or sassy sophistication to well-styled hair, like a unique piece of jewelry on a simple black dress. Or, like Billie Holiday’s gardenia, a customized Green “fascinator” can easily become a personal signature. For Spring 2010, Green has added a delicious new confection called the Doll Hat that was inspired by Impressionist paintings. Think of those miniature brimmed hats worn by Renoir, Manet, and Cassett’s fashionable Parisian women, with a contemporary twist. We can also look forward to a light airy collection of sheer textures, lacy sisal, shades of vanilla, ivory and cream, a cloche in a new ribbon weave jute, big soft brims. and one of my favorites, an exquisite shallow crowned hat with flowers under the brim beside the face rather than above. And for something a bit more tailored, there are the very chic black and white combinations, while soft metallics of pale silvers and coppers add dressier luster. The Spring Collection also features sporty fedoras, and even a couple of bowlers for the guys! Style is all about attitude. Whether you want to attract admiring glances, or just perk up your day, try a Green chapeau. Instead of another short-lived electronic device, invest in a hat. Be alluringly elegant, coquettish, or a noir femme fatale. Be fabulous. A sampling of the collection is on view on the following pages.

By shearing, shaving and shining one head or shoe at a time, owner Matt Berman (or otherwise affectionately known as “Mohawk Matt”) believes Bolt Barbers can help reignite a solid community in downtown LA once again. Berman, formerly a successful marketing executive, opened the old fashioned barbershop with a modern edge in the abandoned Owl Drugs of the Rowan Building in hopes of not only giving well-crafted haircuts but creating a club of sorts for guys of all social backgrounds to bond.
In most urban cities like Los Angeles, restaurants are small due to limited space and high dollar bythe-square-foot rent. Bottega Louie didn’t let that stop them. The 10,000 square feet white wonderland of the former Brooks Brothers’ retail store is a restaurant, bar, patisserie, and boutique market all rolled into one gargantuan space you can easily wheel in your hummer size stroller or even park your R.V. in. (To give you an idea of the size, they serve 800 guests on a Saturday night.)
Although the iconic barbershop is almost as extinct as the dinosaur, Berman explains why LA needs them more than ever. “It’s a backbone of community. It’s not just a place to get a haircut, it’s a gathering spot.” Expect to shoot the breeze with all types of men from artists to executives as you get your mohawk, military cut or straight edge razor shave. Berman might even offer you a cold beer in a frosty mug to coax you to hang out a little longer. Open until midnight Thursday – Saturday. Bolt Barbers 460 S. Spring Street Los Angeles, CA 90013 (310) 594-3150 www.boltbarbers.com 56
FA B R I K
The gourmet Italian themed menu is fairly priced and has small plates to choose from as well as pastas, pizzas and main courses of chicken, beef and fish. The Portobello fries, burrata appetizer and Branzino fish entrée are some of Bottega’s favorites. Have a pan au chocolate in the patisserie, a gimlet at the bar, or pick up some housemade marinara sauce in the market and revel in the grandiosity of the one-stop shop dedicated to the joys of elegant eating. Bottega Louie 700 S. Grand Ave. (Cnr 7th & Grand) Los Angeles, CA 90017 6:30 am – 11 pm (213) 802-1470 www.bottegalouie.com
Soaring ceilings, wine bottle decorated walls, and a glossy wraparound bar make Corkbar the Saks Fifth Avenue of wine bars in downtown LA. Corkbar’s appearance, while sleek and sophisticated on first impression, quickly softens as the helpful ‘wine’tenders guide you through their staggering forty California wines by the glass. Chef Albert Aviles, formerly from Chateau Marmont, also warms the mood by coming out with a glass of wine in hand to chat and happily explain the intricacies of his well-crafted farmers’ market menu creations.
Since Chef Rivera Sedlar, one of the original creators of Southwest cuisine, opened his futuristic Rivera restaurant a year ago, his restaurant has become the darling of LA’s fiercest food critics. No surprise, as Rivera’s menu reflects decades of Sedlar’s quest of Latin culinary history by refining and heightening familiar foods like tamales, mole, ceviche, feijoadas, fideos and jamones representing regional Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, the American Southwest, Spain and Portugal. Sedler explains his vision excitedly, “Latin food is deeply earthy. It’s soulful, rustic, robust. We offer platos pequeños, our small plates, bursting with big, bold, hearty flavors, as well as platos fuertes, our main dishes, such as Prime Gaucho Steak and Crab Cartagena.”
Corkbar offers a decent happy hour (but not cheap) on weekdays from 4- 7 pm and also after 11 pm with $8 glasses of specific wine, $4 pints of artisan beers, and half-off appetizers like cheese gougeres (cheese puffs), pork bruschetta and Pasilla chile mac n’ cheese. On Tuesdays at 5:30 pm, you can be Chef Aviles’ taste testing guinea pig as he tries out new, market driven dishes not on the menu for $2. And Sundays are an excellent pairing - local jazz artists perform from 5 -9 pm while you sip on wine and food specials. Yet another place to facilitate community in downtown LA as they open at 11:30 AM and stay open until whenever the fun stops or the liquor laws dictate. Corkbar 403 W. 12th Street Los Angeles, CA 90015 (213) 746-0050 www.corkbar.com
The cocktails are equally as inventive, whimsical and balanced as Sedlar’s dishes with an obvious focus on exotic tequilas. Try the Barbacoa, a zippy ginger tequila cocktail garnished with beef jerky or if you’re really feeling adventurous – the Donaji, a citrus pomegranate mescal cocktail dusted with bug salt (crickets to be precise). If you’d rather keep it simple, try their ‘Tequila on Tap’ infused with flavors that change weekly like mango, vanilla or basil. Rivera 1050 S.

THE STORE Designer bargain shoppers no longer have to wait until the last Friday of the month for the Cooper Design Space’s sample sales. Simply named, ‘The Store’ is a permanent retail space open to the public every week on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The Store offers a more upscale, boutique-like place for tenants of the Cooper Design Space to sell their extra inventory, samples and slightly irregular pieces.
SKINGRAFT If you were ever torn between wanting to dress as a cowboy, rock star or fighter pilot, Skingraft has the solution to your seemingly contradictory clothing dilemma. Aiming to unleashing the beast within us, LA based Skingraft designs are shocking the fashion world with their unabashed use of leather harnesses, gun holsters, and corset vests all daringly highlighted with animalinspired details and silver studs. Designers Jonny Cota and Katie Kay weren’t always in the fashion world, but their quirky background as stilt performers taught them how to dazzle and entertain. As they made their costumes for their street and party performances, they were inspired to bring that world of fantasy costumes to street wear reality and Skingraft was born. Cota and Kay’s expertise lies in transforming traditional clothing to pieces of ethereal wearable art by accenting with ruffles, feathers, fur and straps. Pop music artists, like Beyonce, Fergie, and Adam Lambert have been seen embracing their animal within by sporting Skingraft leather harnesses and holsters. Ready to dress on your wild side too? Cota and Kay can help, they even do custom wedding gowns.
Owners Mona Sangkala and Jill Galloway say they try to keep prices in The Store well below wholesale. Most pieces are under $100, jewelry under $25. The merchandise changes constantly and organized by type (i.e. work, evening, casual, menswear). The space contains pieces from Rich and Skinny, Odd Molly, Shari Bodell, Park Vogel, Jenny Han, Corey Lynn Calter, and Lotta Stensson to name drop a few. While the showroom monthly sample sales are still going strong, The Store facilitates scoring a sweet designer deal a little more often. The Store 721 S.

ARTFUL AFFAIRS WORDS PETER FRANK
THIS IS YOUR FADA’S FAIR FOR THE PAST several years, the world’s
art year has begun in Los Angeles with three art fairs (almost four, but that’s another story). Last year, the largest and most eclectic of these fairs, the Los Angeles Art Show, grew big enough to move into the downtown Convention Center, filling that yawning space with a dizzying variety of art. This year, the fill will be similar – if not more dizzying. Art fairs have become the new ground zero for the art world, attracting buyers and lookers alike who take the pulse of their milieu while indulging their need – okay, addiction – to see and know and talk about art. The LA Art Show, organized by the Fine Art Dealers’ Association (FADA), is not one of the world’s biggest such affairs, posing no threat to the immense confabulations (and countless satellites) taking place in Miami, Basel, Cologne, New York, Paris, and other venues. (Rumors that the big daddy of them all, Art Basel Miami Beach, would move west to LA have so far proven unfounded.) But, with over a hundred galleries participating in its 15th iteration, the LAAS does provide a cross-sectional flavor. When it moved into the Convention Center last year, the LAAS finally had room enough to sponsor specially organized exhibitions under its roof. This year, one of those exhibitions heralds the fair’s newest annual program, featuring new work from one particular country. Interestingly, Uruguay was chosen as the inaugural focus – a clever choice, as the little country is 62
FA B R I K
wedged between South America’s two largest, most artistically active lands, Argentina and Brazil, and is as cosmopolitan as either. By highlighting this junior member of an elite cohort, the Art Show seems to declare itself a junior member in full standing of the international art-fair circuit. Other special exhibitions featured at the Art Show include “Signs,” a survey of contemporary Middle Eastern art; “Snapshot”; “Vox Humana”; a show of art from LA’s various sister cities; and “An Intimate View of Los Angeles.” As it has in past years, the fair will also offer satellite symposia, panels, lectures, after-show mixers, and a VIP program for industry insiders and collectors. (See www.laartshow.com for details.) One factor expanding the Art Show’s girth is its incorporation of the Los Angeles Print Fair. Organized separately by the International Fine Print Dealers’ Association (and older than the Art Show by a decade), the LAPF provides the LAAS’s most intimate, and some of its most vibrant, moments. While the galleries in the main part of the Art Show occupy grand, airy booths and fill them with paintings, sculpture, and objects of all shapes and sizes, Print Fair participants huddle together intimately, displaying work on paper in ways that bring you up close to the image and the material. In a digital era, such work on paper – even when produced itself with the computer – draws us back into the pleasure of information, of texture, and of the picture.
But, then, so does ‘most any artwork.’ And this is the real thrill of an art fair – the sense of being up close with things that individuals imagined urgently and lovingly and laboriously fabricated out of various substances, close enough not just to study them, but to buy them and bring them home for even closer inspection. The art fair is the midpoint between the museum and the home, an aggregation of galleries that brings together myriad examples of unique invenWeb fabrikmagazine.com

ARTFUL AFFAIRS WORDS PETER FRANK
DESIGN LOVES ART —
THE PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER AS A VERTICAL GALLERY “NEIGHBORHOOD” SOMETHING CURIOUS HAPPENED – or, perhaps, emerged – over the last year. A new neighborhood for art galleries popped up in Los Angeles, seemingly out of nowhere. Actually, that’s not quite right; in general, such neighborhoods already exist, and it's the galleries that pop up – but in this case, at least, the “neighborhood,” a single immense structure, was already profoundly conspicuous, and the galleries, in turn, were, or had been, conspicuous by their absence. The Pacific Design Center stands cheek by jowl with a stretch of Melrose Avenue (and nearby Robertson Boulevard) noted for its world-class galleries as well as design and antique outlets. But, while such outlets fill the PDC’s several pavilions and several floors, nary a commercial art gallery could be found in its intimate maze as of a year ago. The out-building across PDC’s yawning plaza has long been the Museum of Contemporary Art’s one non-downtown venue (fittingly featuring programming in architecture and design); but fine art was otherwise an incidental presence at best, not just a non-entity, but a non-issue in what was in fact a logical milieu for it. Out of adversity comes innovation. The Great Recession swung its scythe no less thoroughly through the art and design worlds than through the rest of the nation, and, of course, nobody bailed out the galleries or museums. (Well, somebody did bail out at least a few museums, but that's another story…) The tribulations of several Los Angeles galleries proved complementary to 64
FA B R I K
those suffered by the Pacific Design Center, and mutual loss led to mutual survival. About a year ago, galleries that had more or less suddenly disappeared off the LA art map started, just as suddenly, to turn up in the “storefronts” lining the PDC’s corridors. What was afoot? Turns out, the folks at the Design Center – prompted by curator Helen Varola – were making such erstwhile stalwarts of the mid-Wilshire, Culver City, and Santa Monica gallery scenes as Carl Berg, d.e.n. contemporary, and See Line, a leasing offer they couldn't refuse: free rent. In the current (non-)market the PDC was faced with a rash of derelict spaces, and realized that allowing hip galleries to “homestead” in those spaces with minimal overhead creates a win-win situation. The PDC is graced, quite appropriately, with art indeed, hot art – the provocative galleries showing the art stay in the fray with vastly reduced risk (handing over a mere 10% of sales to their host), artists get more outlets for their work, collectors and viewers have a convenient single venue to visit, the PDC's “normal” denizens benefit more than obliquely from the increased traffic, and everybody is happier than they thought they could possibly be at this fraught moment in economic history. When the roster of PDC galleries expanded over last summer – coming to include artists' initiatives, secondary outposts of still-open galleries from around the city, and one-off, putatively non-profit situations the PDC gallery scene became that much richer, more varied, and more exciting.
Most cities around the world, from Berlin to Beijing, are used to stacking a lot of galleries under one roof. That’s not been quite LA’s style until now, with the miniexception of 6150 Wilshire and the maxi-variant of Bergamot Station. The abundance of storefronts in this town makes galleries less likely to share a staircase than to cluster in proximity – as they do in Culver City, Chinatown, the Old Bank District, and even in the shadow the PDC casts across West Hollywood. Cramming galleries into a single building, as happens in downtown San Francisco, for instance, or all over New York, just isn't done here; obviously, there simply isn't the vertical real estate there is in other cities, nor is there the impetus to climb stairs or hazard elevators. (That's what gyms and parking garages are for.) So this configures LA people's gallery-going experience in a whole new way, a way that we once thought we had to go abroad to find. This past fall, the Design Center’s galleries began holding their own “art walks,” upping the local ante on one-building gallerygoing. The roster of galleries is now nearing 20, and ranges from established spaces such as Paul Kopeikin, Sam Lee, and Christopher Grimes to initiatives that border on the museological, most notably the international video-art round-ups hosted by critic-curator Paul Young. All seems pretty cozy… There are catches to rentless gallerizing. For one thing, the PDC keeps weekday hours; weekend access has until now been limited (although the PDC folks are reportedly open to considering modifications). For another, everyone’s lease is up in March, and the whole experiment may come to a screeching halt (although so far so good, as both galleries and Design Center people aver). Perhaps most uncomfortably, at any time, a paying occupant – a design firm or furniture outlet or something else Web fabrikmagazine.com
typical of the PDC’s population – can displace a gallery, even in the middle of a show’s announced run. The gallery doesn’t disappear, it just moves into another vacant space. So far, no gallery has been forced to move off the second floor of the PDC’s southern (blue) pavilion, where pretty much all of them (with the exception of Grimes, one of Berg’s spaces, and an annex to Young's show) have clustered.
Later this month, however, the lot of them will be forced upstairs – temporarily – when nearly fifty more galleries from around the world and around the block take up brief residence on PDC’s prime art real estate. Smelling a built-in cachet of hipness (and, doubtless, a low rental fee and alreadyinstalled lighting), ART LOS ANGELES CONTEMPORARY, the last in a month-long parade of LA art fairs, has forsaken both the downtown Convention Center and the Santa Monica Airport's Barker Hangar for this midcity locus. Engaging the young architectural firm Layer LA to help fit the fair’s participants into the storefronts (several to a space, depending on size), Art Los Angeles Contemporary – despite its own rather awkward moniker – promises a graceful tour through the world’s cutting edge. But when you go, don’t forget to ascend to the fifth floor to see more galleries – Los Angeles galleries, in their new native habitat.

GETTY MUSEUM Drawings by Rembrandt & His Pupils: Telling the Difference THRU FEBRUARY 28
Is connoisseurship dead? It seems to be out of favor as an academic topic, but it is still exercised by some of the great art-historical minds of our day. It has to be: until we invent infallible computers able to recognize and analyze every stroke of every artist's every tool, we have to rely on the exquisitely cultivated eye(s) of people who have devoted their lives to knowing what artists are likely to have made, and how they may have made them. By inference, “Drawing by Rembrandt and His Pupils: Telling the Difference” celebrates the obscured, if not endangered, craft of connoisseurship by putting in front of us a tough test for our eyes. Many of us can tell a Rembrandt from a Velazquez, but fewer can tell a Rembrandt from a Carel Fabritius. And that's only in painting. Unlike Velazquez, Fabritius was a pupil of Rembrandt's, so similarities in everything from contour to touch to subject matter are going to predominate, obscuring the differences to all but the trained eye. Work on paper by fourteen other students of the Dutch master hang alongside their teacher's in this show, and from moment to moment it can seem as if - well, as if there are far fewer than fifteen artists on view. In most cases connoisseurs have identified the works, clarifying which are by Rembrandt, which are by such estimable but secondary figures as Nicolas Maes, Govaert Flinck, Aert de Gelder, or Ferdinand Bol. Hey, they're good enough to be confused, even temporarily, with Rembrandt's. “Drawing by Rembrandt and His Pupils” not only shows us how connoisseurship works, but how Rembrandt's workshop worked, and how his way of looking at and describing the world could be inherited and reformulated by his followers.

LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART (LACMA) Joseph Beuys: The Multiples THRU JUNE
Part shaman, part shyster, part radical idealist, part romantic aesthete, Joseph Beuys was so uncool he was cool. And he was so full of idea and impulse, urgency and action that he practically gave off artworks like sunbeams. For Beuys art objects were 70
FA B R I K
physical manifestations of intricate concepts, abstract sensations, and elaborate, mythic memories. His work brims with a personal symbolism that was in a constant state of evolution, sometimes outstripping even Beuys' own perception. One way Beuys had of quieting his mind a bit and fixing idea and symbol into a concrete - if still hermetically endowed - object was to produce artworks in multiple editions. Working this way also allowed people with limited means to acquire these artworks - and, given the simplicity of so many objects, allowed people with limited training to think of themselves as artists and what they do as art (a principle of Beuys' concept of “social sculpture”). As a result, Beuys considered his multiples output perhaps the most important of his oeuvre. Not surprisingly, that output was formidable: there are nearly 600 multiples on view here, and that doesn't exhaust what Beuys produced, sometimes doing nothing more than writing on paper and having that reproduced as a poster, sometimes getting involved in an elaborate performance or street action and making sure something remains from such ephemeral effort. A lot of the time there's very little to “see,” and quite often Beuys' humor, which runs throughout, gets a bit opaque and selfindulgent. But at worst he was having a good laugh at the formalities of the art world - and at best he was combining stuff with an almost alchemical flair.

MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART Collection: MOCA's First Thirty Years THRU MAY 3
MOCA's collection, reaching back to 1939, is famously deep and rich. But we rarely see much of it at any one time. This celebration of the Museum's conception three decades ago, a gleam in the eye of several artists and art people in this then nascent art capital, attests to MOCA's importance as a repository for all manners of later 20th century art, from the very traditional to the impenetrably hip. This celebratory display may be organized to highlight collection strengths and reveal often surprising connections among contemporary but rarely-associated work, but it also makes the case for MOCA's collection as actually, not just hopefully, encyclopedic - you know, somewhere along the line of the Museum of
ART GALLERY & MUSEUM HIGHLIGHTS
Modern Art. Well, MOCA can't put on a display of touchstone masterpieces the way MOMA can, but it can come damned close. Indeed, among its 1950s painters alone MOCA boasts some of the greatest work around by such as Franz Kline, Jean Fautrier, Robert Rauschenberg and Mark Rothko (to whom a whole room is devoted). Among other things, the exhibit, which occupies both MOCA buildings (post1980 work is installed over at the Geffen), gets disparate artworks talking to one another - and never gratuitously. The curators are not being cute when they position sequences of black and white photographs in crucial relation to minimalist modulations or conceptual-art documentations; the relation of mind and spirit between Diane Arbus and Robert Smithson, for example, comes at you in ways you never thought possible in art.

PASADENA MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA ART Wayne Thiebaud: 70 Years of Painting THRU JANUARY 31
Is there a painter more quintessentially Californian, in his subject matter and his style, than Wayne Thiebaud? And is there a painter anywhere in America more deserving of the old-fashioned appellation “master”? Thiebaud - teacher, not incidentally,
to generations of artists, and as genial and plain-spoken a theorist as has ever mused on art-making - has long cast a fond and quizzical eye on the Golden State, its unlikely landscapes, and its sweet capitulation to (and invention of ) pop culture's insouciant banalities and offhand crafts. Thus Thiebaud's celebration of San Francisco's dizzying topographies, his extended meditation on life at the beach, his incessant re-examination of how humans - Americans, Californians - dress and comport themselves, and, most famously, his hypnotic preoccupation with food displays. It is this last fetish, in particular, that prompts people to lump Thiebaud in with Pop art. But, while he may be Warhol's and Lichtenstein's exact contemporary, Thiebaud is not their compeer so much as their complement. Even at his most restrained and self-effaced, his painting technique is rich, voluptuous, and assured, reveling in decidedly un-neutral factors such as texture, light, and tonal relations. Where Pop artists subjected their fine-art impulses to the strictures of illustration, Thiebaud, if anything, invigorates the subjects of illustration with lush fine-art treatment. Thiebaud has been painting and drawing, and printmaking - since the Second World War, and this survey of over 120 works ranges over his entire career, revealing his vision to be consistent even as his style, and his choice and understanding of subject matter, evolve.

JAYE ALISON MOSCARIELLO Jaye Alison Moscariello's new body of work, "Chase, The Monkey" invokes the primal idea of love and fun within the spirit. She employs expressive color and sinuous line to evoke the powerful connections between/among human beings and nature. Her palette suggests the tropics without being garish, and her self-assured contour drawing reminds some viewers of Matisse, communicating a lot with just a little. Her figures chase the élan of human interaction in their colorful environs. The figures become the masters of their domain, man stripped down to his animal. They are everyone and anyone, existing in a locale where identity lies not as deeply as the desire for freedom and joy.

“The shaping of a stone is as powerful a challenge as shaping one’s own spirit.” Sculptor, painter, woman, Alisa Gabrielle is each and every one of these. Her endless passion has moved her to carve the stone and fill the canvas with the same devotion, strength and depth that she uses to sculpt and color her own spirit.
