Orange County Museum of Art Presents

Pop Art Design Through April 2 n the late 1950s, Pop Art burst onto the art scene with nothing less than a bang. Now on view at the Orange County Museum of Art is Pop Art Design with more than 150 artworks that are bold, bright, and familiar. Pop Art influenced furniture and architecture, as well as everyday objects. Sofas, lamps, and paper bags became topics of artistic reflection and developed into a genre that moved beyond visual art and included both graphic design and industrial design. Pop Art Design is the first comprehensive exhibition examining the inspirations and cross-references between art and design that continue to shape our society today. The exhibition is on view through April 2, 2017.

FEATURE

Joëlle Blouin Bringing Her

URBAN CUBISM to Life in Laguna Beach

j

oëlle Blouin is a French-Canadian artist who was born in Quebec City, Canada. Entirely self-taught, Blouin excelled in her craft and has earned an impressive reputation within the art world in a relatively short period of time. Her Work has received international recognition and her paintings are showcased in galleries across Canada and the United States. As a child, she was always drawn to art and aesthetic beauty. She earned a college diploma in Interior Design in 2005. However, while interior design does involve some creativity, it did not meet her internal creative needs. Her true calling and vocation was to become an artist. There was simply nothing she could do but paint, and for that reason, she embarked on a new journey as a young passionate artist. Blouin has never had professional training but feels this has helped her develop a unique and personal technique. Using oil paint as her medium and the palette knife as her tool, the artist’s working style captures the eye through its unique cubic texturing. She blends and mixes her paints directly on the canvas using only the palette knife developing her incomparable style, Urban Cubism. Joëlle’s success accelerated at unprecedented speed and has included accolades along the way. Her work has been exhibited at renowned galleries and disJoëlle Blouin tinguished events. Her breakthrough in the United States has skyrocketed through considerable media coverage within the artistic trade publications. In the course of her career she has garnered a number of awards of national and international significance, including the juried selection of her work for the ArtExpo New York, as well as the industry standard’s Art Business naming her as one of the current top-selling artists and among the TOP 40 Artists to Watch! Blouin prides herself on her keen ability to observe. It’s through this genuine sensitivity that she finds her inspiration. Traveling when she can, she immerses herself into the elements that make up her surroundings. Always aware of how they reflect light, hold color and work in harmony.

Spread the Love, oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches

Leaving room for the imagination, imperfection and abstraction are purposely present in Joëlle’s work, showing that aesthetic beauty can emerge from the painter’s interpretation of a simple environment. Albeit, chaotic, mysterious or serene, her work always invites, reflecting her love of life and her presence in whatever surroundings fill her always observing and inspired eye. Joëlle’s work is exhibited locally at the Signature Gallery on Forest Avenue in downtown Laguna Beach. An artist reception on February 2nd 6-9 pm., will showcase her latest works and is open to the public. See page 8 and www.thesignaturegallery.com Urban Chaos, oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches

LACMA, pablo picasso and diego rivera were contemporaries, erstwhile competitors, equally ambitious and prolific as artists, internationally famous, and well aware of their larger-than-life personalities. Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time presents moments of intersection in the formation of modernism both in europe and latin america, and asks how these towering figures of the twentieth century engaged with their respective ancient mediterranean and pre-columbian worlds. the exhibition compares their artistic trajectories beginning with their similar academic training to their shared investment in cubism and their return to an engagement with antiquity from the 1920s through the 1950s. by placing 150 paintings, etchings, and watercolors in dialogue with each other and with singular ancient objects, Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time aims to advance the understanding of picasso and rivera’s practice, particularly in how their contributions were deeply influenced by the forms, myths, and structures of the arts of antiquity (through 5/7) lacma.org

Kerry James Marshall: Mastry moca is pleased to present a 35-year retrospective of painter Kerry James marshall. marshall’s figurative paintings have been joyful in their consistent portrayal of african americans. the now nearly 600 year history of painting contains remarkably few african american painters and even fewer representations of black people. marshall, a child of the civil rights era, set out to redress this absence. this exhibition, marshall’s first major retrospective in the united states, contains nearly 80 paintings. marshall’s strategy was three fold.

Contemporary Expressionism

by Evan Senn

S

andra Jones Campbell is an artist you are sure to recognize—her signature style and popularity are known throughout the national contemporary art scene, but based out of Orange County, Campbell is a gem treasured by the local arts community.

Her paintings make viewers feel like an onlooker of the roaring ‘20s or ‘30s society in New York; invisibly observing the fun and frivolity that people were so desperate to experience during the tumultuous political and social changes happening around the coun-

try during that time. They are glimpses of lovers, friends and families partaking in parties and events reminiscent of The Great Gatsby; nostalgic and magnetic, drawing viewers into love and lust—high brow culture enjoying the sensory low brow life. Jones’ work exemplifies her outlook on life, while a bit dark and perhaps even a little cynical, her work focuses on the love and the light inside of friends and groups of people having a good time—much like the artist herself. The energy in her work is fun and playful although the visual details can


be bolder and darker than just that. It is a balanced relationship, between the dark and the light. Through her work, she is able to transport viewers to another place—and often another time— while maintaining the magnetism and high quality compositions she has been known for, for over thirty years.

CONTEMPORARYOC

Having grown up in a small town in Oregon without much hustle and bustle, Campbell was enchanted with images, culture and refined urban social settings from a young age. She learned all she could from photos in magazines, newspapers and movies. She was drawn to the visuals of the social scene—high society social galas and parties, people drinking, smoking and laughing, together. There is something attractive inherent in these images, perhaps it is Jones’ energy imbued into the paintings themselves. Although every work of art is distinctive and unique, her personal artistic style can be seen in every stroke she makes on a canvas.

she paints. Captivated by vintage photographs, newspaper clippings, banners, mythology and vintage finds from all eras, she finds inner fulfillment creating scenes she has been observing and imagining from afar since she was little. Drawn specifically to Deco era finds and black and white photography, the high contrast gives her room to play with colors and create a mood, breathing life into her snapshot-style paint-

Although she categorizes her style of painting as a sociological sighting portrayed in an evocative and voyeuristic way, she admits that she still gets thrilled while painting new pieces. “Painting is a passion requiring discipline, but, I’m still excited when I press down the first line and then experience the moment when I stand back and realize the painting has taken off, and I’m along for the ride,” she told us. continued on pg. 42

Inspired by German Expressionists Max Beckmann, Otto Dix and George Grosz, Jones’s work takes piece of that vintage, rough expressionistic style and infuses her own avant-garde, boundary-pushing contemporary perspective into it. Bold, dark reds and heavy shadows mingle with thick lines, bright blues and burnt yellows in her work, while an impressionistic side peeks through in her unique portrayals of faces and expressions. “I was trained to ‘paint pretty’ or draw well. But, I love being unconventional in my direction and style, “ she says; “bending the figure, overcrowding the canvas or pushing the image off the edge seems so much more interesting.”

A Vibrant Refuge from the Troubled World:The Art of

Henri MATISSE

F

by Joy Shannon

French painter Henri Matisse, who lived from 1869-1954, is considered one of the most influential painters of the twentieth century. While Matisse lived through some of the most horrific wars of the last century, his work is remarkably different than contemporaries of his that founded revolutionary political art movements or directly confronted or reflected political upheaval in their works. Matisse remarkably seemed to maintain creating his work from a place of spiritual refuge from such troubled times. Critic Robert Hughes wrote in “the Shock of the New,” that Henri Matisse working The Cut-Outs, 1953

Matisse “utterly refutes the notion that the great discoveries of modernism were made by violently rejecting the past.” Instead, Matisse created a studio as “a world within the world: a place of equilibrium that, for sixty continuous years, produced images of comfort, refuge, and balanced satisfaction.”

First trained to be a lawyer, Matisse initially found the time to devote to his artistic expressions while on bedrest; Matisse first began painting from bed while he recovered from appendicitis in his early twenties. Likewise, later in his life, in 1941, he would create some of his most famous “cut-outs” of vibrant paper forms while recovering from surgery and unable to paint. Matisse’s career is marked by the use of dramatic, vibrant color, elegant lines, and simplified figures and interiors. His interiors were influenced by the patterned tile work of Islamic interiors, which de-emphasize depth and demand equal attention by the eye throughout the space. Early on, Matisse was considered a founder of the earlytwentieth century French movement Fauvism, or the “wild beasts,” defined by the vivacious use of color and texture. This bold approach to painting can be seen in works like “Woman with Hat,” created in 1905, that shocked critics with its vibrant colors, some considered “illogical.” Of his color use Matisse said in 1951, “the spiritual expression of.. color strikes me as unquestionable… Simple colors can affect innermost feelings, their impact being all the more forceful through their simplicity.” As profoundly direct the concept of creating spiritual atmosphere with color and simplicity is, Matisse’s work initially created controversy. His monumental canvas “Le Bonheur de Vivre (The Joy of Life),” painted between 1905-1906, inspired public outrage at his vibrant colors and distorted perspective. The composition, typical of Matisse’ treatment of figurative work, includes elegantly outlined nude figures in various states of bliss and relaxation in a pastoral setting, with a circular group of dancers in the background, foreshadowing a later work of his “The Dance” from 1909-10. Works like “Le Bonheur de Vivre” and “The Dance” create an almost primal, ageless image of man in his most Henri Matisse, Joy of Life, 1905 - 06

basic and essential expression of happiness. In this way, Matisse seemed to reject positioning his works amongst twentieth century current events, but rather created pieces that recalled some ancient and culturally-non specific collective human memory. With his remarkable work “Le Bonheur de Vivre” Matisse found a worthy equal and friend in the art world: Pablo Picasso. In 1907, Picasso painted his own ground-breaking work “Les Demoiselles D’Avignon” as a response to “Le Bonheur de Vivre.” Initially, Matisse criticized Picasso’s work as

a “mockery” of avant-garde art, but eventually the two artists saw the advantage to their association. For example, during the late 1920s Matisse saw a lull in his art career and his own inspiration to paint, after critics called him a “has-been.” Picasso provoked Matisse to keep painting, by painting his own versions of Matisse’s works. The influence of the two artists upon each other can be seen in works like Matisse’s “The Dream,” from 1940, where he depicts a dreaming woman in elegant line, pattern and bold color, comparable to Picasso’s “Woman with Yellow Hair,” painted in 1931. continued on pg. 62

Despite all its imperfections I consider it as my masterpiece.” Ultimately, Matisse’s Continually through their careers, the two artists final masterpiece, remains in step with his ultimate goal kept this artistic conversation going, even when they for his works during his lifetime, but instead of being a painting on a wall, which offers a window to a peaceful, could not openly communicate. During Hitler’s takeover of the European art scene during World War spiritual refuge, the Rosaire Chapel is literally a physical spiritual refuge from the outside world, offering a peaceII, he labeled avant grade artists like Picasso and Matisse “degenerate” and blocked such artists from ful place to pray surrounded by vibrant beauty. exhibiting their works. Despite of this, the two artists kept the memories of each other’s visual ideas alive. Almost like artistic love letters written from afar, the pair paid tribute to each other’s works by recalling the memories of one another’s ideas in their new works. As an ultimate tribute to his friend and artistic equal, Picasso painted “The Studio at La Californie” in 1955-56 about his relationship with Matisse, about a decade after Matisse’s death.

Henri Matisse

What Matisse considered his ultimate masterpiece was not a painting or one of his famous “cutouts,” but instead was his interior designs for the Rosaire Chapel in Vence, in the south of France. The inspiration for this project came out of of his time in recovery from a surgery in 1941. He found painting too difficult for his health at the time, so he began to create paper cut-out collages of expressive, poetic figures in vibrant colors. Meanwhile, he formed a deep bond with the nurse Monique Bourgeois who cared for him during this time. She ultimately became a Dominican nun, renamed Sister JacquesMarie, and Matisse created a chapel for her order during his ailing years at the end of his life.

T

The chapel itself is a vivacious, peaceful and minimalistic approach to the traditional Christian imagery. Rather than the paintings of pain and suffering typically seen in Christian churches, Matisse focused instead on the spiritual love and sacrifice seen in the story of Christ and the Virgin Mary. He created a chapel with vibrant, stained glass windows of organic floral motifs in green, blue and yellow, surrounded by walls adorned with abstract flowers and the Madonna and Child in black outlines on white tiles. In an unusual and complete addition to the project, Matisse designed (cut) unusual, colorful priests and nun habits for holy day celebrations, which were hailed by Picasso as “the best bit of the whole project.”
