A Horse of Distinct Color The pipe, glass and copper dream of Sculptor, Daniel Oropeza by Mark Kaufman

T

Talk amongst artists can be a bit cheap, especially when contemplating new ideas or the implementation of some creative inspiration. It’s one thing to express in words one’s vision and quite another to physically execute. As Thomas Edison said, “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” In late 2016, in the midst of one of our near daily exchanges at nearby Kean Coffee, Costa Mesa based sculptor, Daniel Oropeza invited me to drop by his studio later that day to see his latest project, a piece he would only describe as a “significant undertaking.” Daniel’s studio is an easy and frequent visit for me given it’s just a mile from my office. I’ve visited often enough to know, at a moment’s glance, what’s new. Following up on his invitation, I dropped in, quite curious to know what he was referencing with his earlier proclamation. Once inside his two story warehouse studio, I immediately discovered him welding away at a steel bar framework; a concoction resembling the spine of a very large creature, a beast of some sort. The buzz and spark of his tig welder casting a shadow of the framework on both me and the wall behind me. He tipped his helmet up and greeted me with, “Meet Luxe, my latest. He’s going to be a life-sized Friesian. I am going take him back to ArtPrize next September (2017).” Then adding with a quiet confidence, “And I am going to win.” ArtPrize, for those who don’t know, is a 3 week art competition offering a half a million dollars in various prize money and held annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, which according to Google maps, is a mere 2,232 miles from Costa Mesa. Ahem. The festival, one of the largest of its kind, routinely hosts more a thousand art entries spread over nearly 200 venues. Over the course of Artprize, several hundred thousand visitors blanket the downtown area, the majority of them registering to vote for their favorite piece. I didn’t take his prediction as anything more than an objective; a focal point meant to drive him forward and not at all boastful. I know Daniel’s work ethic so I had little doubt he’d make this effort a personal challenge, churning, burning, crafting and toiling to some physical construct. I do know I wasn’t sure it would lead where it did. At the

same time, knowing his recent work, I did feel he was on a good path in regards to materials and technique. My familiarity with his approach had exposed me to his recent experimentation - utilizing a mix of copper sheeting, steel framework, and poured glass. Now, after several years of trial and error, I believed he had found himself at a point (with this mix) where he felt he could â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;go for it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; His confidence was in place and I encouraged him. Over the next ten or so months I routinely checked in, and watched as he, through Winter chill, Spring rain and Summer sun, mastered, molded and hammered (without ever constructing a maquette) an elegant creature nine feet in height, weighing nearly 1,500 pounds. Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love, labor and wonder had crafted a true show-stopper. Big, shiny, commanding, Luxe, now clad in a skin of custom glass poured onto a hundred or so sheets of patterned copper, complemented with an illuminated core and flowing glass mane, had found life and a presence. continued on pg. 20

Daniel and Lux at ArtPrize

Details are always part of the finish. Painters and sculptors alike will confess to details and finish being the most difficult. As September’s departure date loomed, those incomplete, yet very necessary, details and final touches, continued to surface in an exhausting, almost water-torture-like frequency. A panel of copper here, a welding field of texture there, more flowing ice cycle-like glassware. Undaunted, Oropeza pushed on, determined. In the early morning hours of mid September 2017, Luxe was loaded into a horse trailer, ironically, and secured in place, off on a cross country journey to an event foreign to first-time entry Oropeza. Daniel pulled away, a thousand hours of work cradled in tow.

I bid him farewell and the best of luck, envious of his artistic trek. Luckily, I was able to keep in touch with him via text while he made his way east, hearing in bytes of his challenges along the way. He ran into significant hail and lost a trailer brake early on, yet pressed forward over those two thousand miles, arriving four long days later in Grand Rapids with plenty of time to meet his pre-scheduled installation date. For the following three weeks Luxe stood tall on the grass in his designated display area, a fortunate landing point right smack in front of the Grand Rapids Museum. Daniel, initially unsure how the ‘art world’ would receive his grand effort, began to take note of the enormity of ArtPrize. He shared with me feeling grateful just to be there and of hours spent walking the city. His focus had turned from winning to simply experiencing. The people were amazing, the art; spectacular. The entirety of ArtPrize, beyond consuming. Then something happened. As the early days of light attendance gave way to a more frenzied first weekend of ArtPrize, so grew the admiration for Luxe. Day after day, the crowds grew, surrounding Luxe, mass crowds ensued. Majestically posed, Luxe stood for endless selfies. News crews from Midwest media outlets clamored. There was a buzz, Daniel was in demand and more importantly, Lux was in demand. We spoke several times by phone and with each call he’d confess a weird mix of exhaustion and bliss. One week turned into two and two into three. The crowds continued, the interviews too. Prizes were being announced soon and damn it, Daniel seemed to be in the race. The judging process at ArtPrize is part juror and part popular vote. Daniel was named as a finalist in the popular vote in his category, meaning that the hundreds of thousands of attendees had independently voted for Lux and the possibility of him ‘winning’ was very real. Friends and family aware of Luxe’s production anxiously followed. The results were broadcast live via a Grand Rapid’s TV station’s streaming news feed. Several of us here in Costa Mesa listened together. Then it came. “The winner of 3-Dimensional Art… Luxe, by Daniel Oropeza!” Drop the mic. It happened, inspiration had taken form and forged a reality. Full circle. Hard work, determination and experience all collaborated. The results were more than physical; they were also emotional. Luxe’s vote count had tallied in the hundreds of thousands. Luxe and Daniel returned to California in late October, both still glowing. One in it’s shining alloy exterior, the other from his life-changing saga. Luxe however, has been summoned back. Alumni at Michigan’s Western State University took a particular liking to magic of this glass, copper and steel marvel. Luxe apparently suits the Alumni’s mythic image of their mascot, a larger than Always changing colors of Lux life Bronco. A deal is unfolding to potentially find Luxe a permanent home not far from where he captured the imagination of thousands, and ultimately, affording Daniel, the artist with an idea, legitimate reason to feel inspired yet again.

LACMA, Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985 is a groundbreaking exhibition and accompanying book about design dialogues between california and mexico. its four main themes—Spanish Colonial Inspiration, Pre-Hispanic Revivals, Folk Art and Craft Traditions, and Modernism—explore how modern and anti-modern design movements defined both locales throughout the twentieth century. half of the show’s more than 250 objects represent architecture, conveyed through drawings, photographs, and films to illuminate the unique sense of place that characterized california’s and mexico’s buildings. the other major focus is design: furniture, ceramics, metalwork, graphic design, and murals. placing prominent figures such as richard neutra, luis Barragán, charles and ray eames, and clara porset in a new context while also highlighting contributions of less familiar practitioners, this exhibition is the first to examine how interconnections between california and mexico shaped the material culture of each place, influencing and enhancing how they presented themselves to the wider world, (through 4/1/18) lacma.org

Dawson Cole Fine Art Hosts Special Event Benefiting Boys & Girls Club During the month of December, Laguna Beach’s Dawson Cole Fine Art shared their philanthropic spirit and holiday cheer by hosting a special event benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach. On Dec. 7th, Rich and Ariane MacDonald from DCFA welcomed guests for a festive evening with small bites and delicious deserts from Broadway Restaurant, followed by a special performance from dancers from the Festival Ballet Theatre who performed vignettes from the Nutcracker. The gallery offered an amazing opportunity drawing where guest could win a onenight stay at the Ritz Carlton of Laguna Niguel, a gift bag by Dr. Obagi, tickets to see the Nutcracker at the Irvine Barclay Theater, among other gifts. Sales from the opportunity drawing benefited the programs offered to kids attending the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach. Prior to the event, DCFA asked attending guest to help support the Club by providing an unwrapped toy or new article of clothing for a boy or girl. The Club was amazed at how many toys were donated from the special event. “We are very grateful for the all the support and tremendous

commitment Dawson Cole Fine Art has provided to our Club,” said CEO, Pam Estes of the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach. “The wonderful toys that were donated from our heart-warming Laguna Beach locals and surrounding areas bought so much joy to children of families who were in need of help during this holiday. We’d like to especially thank Rich and Ariane Macdonald for putting on this joyous event and making a positive impact in our youth who are our future.” www.dawsoncolefineart.com

ture of the myths and dreams of the Old West. Schenck’s work is not only cinematic in scope; it is also grounded in technique and style. His iconic, reductive approach is reminiscent of the color planes used in early computer graphics, establishing a visual dialogue between the straightforward subject matter and the more nuanced space of the rendering. The textual element of the comic book-inspired word bubbles is of equal importance to the meaning of each piece, often serving to either undermine or establish the guiding ambitions of the characters’ psyche.

Many of the scenes are a cheeky look at both the history of the American Frontier, as well as the established perceptions through the lens of contemporary popular culture, with a heavy dose of exaggerated passion and romance. The scenes pictured are at times comical, and at others, profound. Schenck plays up the ambiguity between his villains and heroes, underscoring the duality of human nature, a central theme in his work. www.joanneartmangallery.com

Meet sculptor, Angela Mia De la Vega, at Pacific Sculpture Gallery in Newport Beach, Saturday, January 27th, 12-5 p.m.

Since sculpting her first bronze in 1994, Angela Mia De la Vega has been creating figurative bronze sculptures for international collectors, corporations and institutions. Exalting the human spirit through expressive faces and natural body movement has become Angela's recognized trademark. Her work's greatest inspiration is the curious and ever-changing individuality of her children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I'm working, I find the sculpture gradually coming to life. The piece never seems finished; I want to continue its creation but have to push myself to finally let go. Freedom of spirit is my work's purpose: to uplift and inspire feelings of pure love and joy. My fulfillment as an artist is complete if I feel that my sculpture stirs or awakens personal emotion in the hearts of its viewers.â&#x20AC;? Pacific Sculpture Gallery, www.pacificsculpture.com.

Ten years ago, what began as a glimmer of an idea within a group of friends from Orange County Fine Arts Association has blossomed into an established beautiful and classic art gallery in Laguna Beach, proudly exhibiting the amazing and highly skilled artistry and talent of the artists who call the Artist Eye Gallery their own.

In 2008, we were very fortunate to stumble upon a location in Lagunaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quaint HIP District, right on PCH surrounded by fabulous restaurants, shops and the historic La Casa del Camino Hotel across the street. We originally sub-let our space from Mian and Helen Situ because they had planned to move a few blocks away. We quickly pulled together a plan, measuring the square footage to calculate how many artists we would need to make this plan financially feasible. We juried in an eclectic group of 20 highly skilled artists. From those selected artists, we pooled our re-


sources, furnished the gallery and opened our doors on May 1, 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which also happened to be Art Walk night. After a few months we did a small remodel of the gallery. All the artists chipped in to strip and repaint the existing walls and build a back wall enabling us to exhibit more fine art in the gallery. In 2010 we renewed our lease with our current landlord and completed a major remodel of the gallery, changing the look completely. The saw-toothed design of the walls provides a unique view both as you enter the gallery and from the rear of the gallery. The new configuration creates a larger individual space for each artist to display their work. The gallery proudly exhibits watercolor, oil, acrylic, mixed media, photography and sculpture. Each artist works at the gallery twice a month to expertly assist customers as they purchase that special piece of artwork that brings a sense of beauty and love into their home. The artwork at our gallery is always changing so we invite you to drop in often and visit with our friendly, charismatic and knowledgeable artists. Artist Eye Gallery is located at 1294-A S. Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, CA 92651 (949) 497-5898 See page 16 or visit, www.artisteyegallerylaguna.com

Roy LICHTENSTEIN Connecting the Dots ... in Pop by Joy Shannon

Whaam, 1963

O

nce you ‘got’ Pop, you could never see a sign the same way again. And once you thought Pop you could never see America the same way again.” (Andy Warhol) The Pop Art movement of the 1960s became known as an utter redefinition of what was considered art. Suddenly, artists were elevating everyday objects like soup cans to fine art pieces, and utilizing what were considered commercial painting or printing processes never before used in the realm of fine art. While Warhol was famous for using commercial screen printing, typically used to print signs and disposable posters, to create works that were displayed in fine Roy Lichtenstein art galleries, painter Roy Lichenstein was known for mimicking the commercial printing process called “Ben Day” dots used to inexpensively print comic books and newspapers. By elevating a printing process that was used in throw-away medias to large scale paintings and even sculpture, Lichenstein turned what was considered art upon its head, in proper Pop Art style.

60

LOCALARTS.COM

Perhaps best known for his piece 1963 painting “Whaam!” Lichenstein recreated an image from the 1962 issue of DC Comics' All-American Men of War, which shows a jet fighter plane deploying a missile at another plane. The comic caption above the bright and almost patriotic primary-colored composition reads “I pressed the fire control… and ahead of me rockets blazed through the sky… Whaam!” In light of the tumultuous politics of 1962 and 1963, from the Cuban Missile crisis to the assassination of President Kennedy, taking such a bold and triumphant image of war and violence from a comic and isolating it on a large scale canvas, seemed to question American cultural ideals, concepts of war, politics and patriotism. By isolating and enlarging what were small and seemingly meaningless or insignificant pieces of comic imagery, Lichenstein’s work gives these comic panels immense amounts of weighted cultural significance and meaning. The artist’s use of melodramatic romantic comic imagery in such pieces as “Engagement Ring” (1961) and “Drowning Girl” (1963), highlight American pop cultural ideals of love, relationships between men and women and what is authentic in emotions or not. Like Warhol’s work omicontinued on pg. 62

art history

Roy LICHTENSTEIN In his later works, Lichenstein went on to reimagine imagery found in the works of early 20th century masters like Picasso and Dalí in his signature dot printing style, taking what was once expressionistic and emotional and “industrializing” its painting style to look like a commercially printed process. In this way, he showcased the mass-reproduction of these masters works, which, perhaps, had changed their personal meaning and significance in popular culture over time.

Drowning Girl, 1963

nously foreshadowed the acceleration of the celebrity-making machine that dominates our media to this day, Lichenstein was highlighting, and seemingly questioning, the pop cultural dissemination of ideas about relationships and gender roles. Lichtenstein was fascinated at the time, by what he called the “industrialization of emotions” and stated "I was very excited about, and very interested in, the highly emotional content yet detached impersonal handling of love, hate, war, etc., in these cartoon images.” Whether he fully intended it or not, Lichenstein’s imagery seemed right in step with the questioning of gender role ideals, as seen in the 1960s women’s rights movement.

Pistol, 1968

62

LOCALARTS.COM

As Lichenstein commented on his own works: “I'm never drawing the object itself; I'm only drawing a depiction of the object - a kind of crystallized symbol of it,” the artist’s works reproduced cultural symbols and icons as a way to challenge cultural meaning and memory. Just as Warhol reproduced the iconic imagery of Marilyn Monroe like religious “iconography” which seemed to question the cultural act of making a religion out of celebrity, Lichenstein’s works elevated the broad and loaded concepts of gender, relationships, war, art and emotions to fine art, while also questioning the cultural idealism within those concepts themselves. In essence, Lichenstein created both deeply simple and superficially complex works. And, in perfect Pop Art fashion, once you have seen a Lichenstein, you can never see a comic strip the same way again.

Femail Figure, 1979
