THE

Signature Gallery Presents the Extraordinary Work of Charles Pabst

Charles Pabst in his studio (above) , Pacific Blue, O/C (below)

2014

marks the 50th Year of Painting for Charles Pabst and he will be celebrating this milestone throughout the year as the 50th year since he sold his first painting at the age of 14. Charles began drawing and painting as soon as he could hold a pencil or brush and completed his first serious work at the age of 14, which he immediately sold for $50. He has never stopped painting and has now moved well into the 21st century. His bold style and varying subjects are ever evolving. Yet it is the emotion in his work that has kept his name in the minds of the discerning art collectors and his brilliantly structured pieces in collections worldwide. Charles has mastered the palette knife and his works demonstrate an unmatched technical ability. While known worldwide for his Southwestern landscapes, he is also an equally remarkable seascape and cityscape painter. His vibrant palette and textural finish compliment his

impeccable draftsmanship and together these attributes make for a one-of-a-kind viewing experience. Amongst others featured alongside the work of Charles H. Pabst are his daughter and son, Cara Pabst Moran and Michael Pabst, Like the harmony in great painting, The Signature Gallery's family of artists is bonded together as kin through texture, layering of color, and the unparalleled effects of light.

revealing ARTWORKOF mia tavonatti

THE

Written by Evan Senn

W Walking through Mia Tavonatti’s loft and studio is like walking into a perfectly curated gallery, with only little nooks of mess and organized chaos. I gravitated to the first messy nook I could find, to explore and dive into her world. A bottom floor studio full of organized and labeled boxes, crates and shelves surrounding a large work table covered in hundreds of tiny pieces of colored glass, with what looked like a glimpse of a woman’s face and red curls peeked through the shiny sea of glass shards and squares. She picks up a dusting brush and brushes aside whole piles of the tiny colored squares with only a few quick motions. She speaks with poised candor, admitting that these masterful works are long and labor-intensive fights with color and perception. They are not as simple and easy as the final product makes them seem.

Tavonatti hosts small, contemporary art exhibitions out of her loft gallery, Tavonatti Gallery at the City Place Lofts in Santa Ana, and brings light to talented artists she knows and works with in the Orange County area.

and the Santora Building in downtown Santa Ana), who helped her start her mosaic practice. She started with one small job of nine mosaic murals at Newport Elementary School, and found a new practice in her work.

She has been a professor in painting at Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) for over 20 years, and with the students of LCAD, Tavonatti helped organize and execute the largest and most visible murals in all of Orange County. She continues to coordinate large murals for Orange County, aiming to help invigorate the community and inspire younger generations to constantly create, love and live bravely.

Though her stature is small and sunny, this creative machine is a force to be reckoned with. Constantly working on fascinating commissions, her waiting list for custom artwork grows and grows. Spending over 300 hours on a small, new mosaic piece, Tavonatti is critical and dedicated to her craft. Tavonatti has won 1st and 2nd place in the esteemed ArtPrize competition. Her 2011 submission of a crucified glass mosaic Jesus Christ won the $250,000 grand prize at ArtPrize—the same morning that Tavonatti’s mother died. Though Tavonatti is not a religious person by nature, her art seems to be her spiritual guide, and she has found the Catholic and Christian church very welcoming to her and her work, regardless of the composition.

Her mosaic work is unlike any other I’ve seen. With extreme precision and a painterly flow of light and shadow throughout the tiled glass, her works take on light and life like a painting, with ease and natural progression. Tavonatti was trained as an illustrator and painter, she had no interest in tile work, glass work or mosaics early on in her career—now, she is sought after the world over, for these incredible, labor-intensive pieces of art. Tavonatti admitted that it was in part thanks to peer pressure from a confident friend, Jack Jakosky (who now owns the Crown of Thorns, Logan Creative Center 18”x 18”, stained glass mosaic

In 2007, Tavonatti moved to Italy to complete and exhibit her largest painting series to date, Svelata, meaning “unveiled” or “revealed”—also the name of her humanicontinued on pg. 24

career. But, Tavonatti recently announced that Cocco and Salem Gallery in Key West, Florida will be hosting her first solo exhibition in February 2015. Her foundation, Svelata Foundation for the Arts gives scholarships and grants to artists and art students across the country. Over the past few years, Svelata has been focusing on a collaborative art project, Power of Words Projects, which brings professional artists and art student together with members of the community to create large murals representing a chosen word for a citywide mural project. Laguna Beach has a WONDER mural, along with a few other cities in varying states across the country. Svelata gives scholarships and grants to selected participants in these projects, to further support the program and the art community of the area.

tarian foundation. This series of large oil paintings is breathtaking in person. Mostly composed of women veiled in cloth and water, her Svelata series dives into the intimate and personal journey for women everywhere, using water and drapery as great technical details as well as symbolic items in her narratives. Each of the 20 paintings explore the female identity, the relationship between man and woman or personal journey. Her monumental series, Svelata, debuted at the ancient Museo Arsenale in Amalfi, the land of the sirens— truly fitting for this series. Last year, Tavonatti served as Artist-inResidence at Fullerton College and also had a solo exhibition in their gallery in February of 2013. She also donated her EMERGE painting to their permanent collection. She also had invasive brain surgery to remove a 5-centimeter tumor that had been causing her painful migraines and partial blindness in both eyes. According to Tavonatti, this “hunk of junk,” as she called it, was her mental and emotional baggage, and after having it successfully removed, she felt more mentally and physically healthy than she ever had before. Her newly healthy and invigorated life gave her new motivation, even through hard times like losing family. It was a transformative year for her, to say the least.

Her name, Mia comes from the name Mya, meaning “the illusion of life” or “the veil of life.” Her work—both painting and mosaic—reflects so much of herself, both visually and symbolically, looking at one of her paintings, murals or mosaic pieces seems like you’re looking into an intimate window to her soul. It is important to Tavonatti to have her work be relative to the viewers, but she admits that making her work be a personal expression seems to connect to more people on a deeper level than her early work, which kept the subject matter very open. Her artwork is powerful and profound. The style of much of the work has a touch of dream-like atmosphere, but is weighted in realism and honesty. She creates an emotional depth that connects you to the artwork longer and longer as you stare at one of her masterful works  See more at: http://www.miatavonatti.com

Now, Tavonatti has a new lease on life, without guilt, baggage or pain. She is preparing to enter the contemporary gallery scene. She’s been making a living creating artwork by commissions for years, but has never been represented by a gallery. Her work belongs to major collections, museums and institutions all over the world, but she has even only been in a handful of gallery exhibitions in her whole Mia with Sirena 84”x 48”, oil on canvas

Dawson Cole Fine Art is one of Southern California’s most notable and celebrated art galleries. It is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Laguna Beach on Glenneyre Street just footsteps from Forest Avenue.. Since opening this location in 1997, owners Richard Jr. and wife Ariane MacDonald have created something unique to the area. While primarily devoted to the presentation of incredible work by sculptor Richard MacDonald Sr., the gallery also hosts and exhibits work by many American Masters. Adjacent to the gallery is a spacious and magical sculpture garden that should not be missed. The collector, novice and experienced alike can enjoy and acquire works by artists represented in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum, the Chicago Art Institute and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco. The MacDonalds believe in community too and support local community and charities. Dawson Cole Fine Art represents a standard in the gallery world, and an ideal partner for bettering the local community. How have you grown/ changed since then? What new directions are you going in or wanting to explore? The gallery opened in Laguna Beach in 1997, and since that time, we have changed quite considerably. In addition to representing my father’s outstanding sculptural works, we have expanded to represent some of the finest representational artists working today, including Chuck Close, Wayne Thiebaud and Donald Sultan. The group of artists we represent include top-level museum artists which we are privileged to exhibit. Can you tell us about your curation process? Aside from your Father’s work, how do you pick artists? And can you talk about a few of the artists you represent? Our goal has always been, and continues to be, to represent the finest representational artists in the country. We exhibit works by both established artists such as Chuck Close, Wayne Thiebaud, and Donald Sultan, we also dedicate a portion of our collection to the younger, emerging artists like Tom Betts, James Galindo and mid-level career artists Nancy Bush and Jim Lamb.

quality of the work is paramount, and as we work to expand, we are looking to represent a greater range of artists, styles and subject matter. However, I will say that the selection process is very thorough, at times intense, and takes time – sometimes years. As a child raised in the arts and surrounded by artists my entire life, I became very cognizant and sensitive to the dealer/artist relationship – the relationships we have with our artists are very important and it’s important going in, that we are all on the same page. Your Father was recently honored in Barcelona, Spain at MEAM. Can you elaborate on that experience? My wife, Ariane and I were recently in Barcelona for my father’s exhibition at the Museum of European Modern Art – the locals call it MEAM. Banners lined the streets of Barcelona announcing the show featuring three signature works, including Nureyev, Blind Faith and Sissone. The museum is amazing – the collection is housed in a structure built in the 17th century and sits adjacent to the Picasso Museum in downtown Barcelona. The exhibit repre-

sents a major retrospective of my father’s work and includes 65 works ranging from the smaller studies to the larger, heroic works. The exhibition also includes a few of his original paintings and drawings. The Barcelonians have a great love of the arts and are very passionate about the arts. There were over 550 people there for the opening of the exhibit and it was fantastic to see their love for Richard MacDonald, his work, and for the figurative arts in general. It was a great time all around.

You offer a range of works, from the smaller and more attainable to those of significant scale and value. What basic advice do you offer the novice collector? Buy what you love and enjoy the journey. It’s a lot of fun. You have also been very proactive in the community supporting local charities. How do you see the art world best affecting these various groups. There are a lot of great non-profit organizations out there doing a lot of wonderful things for the communities they support. We try to focus our efforts on the local organizations of course and those that specifically work to help children and the arts. Some of the organizations that we have committed to are JDRF of Orange County, The Pacific Symphony and Carl St. Claire’s Arts Express Program, the Laguna College of Art and Design, and Free Arts for Abused Children. We are continually looking for innovative ways to provide support, whether it be in arts education, printmaking workshops, or providing fundraising support.

Richard MacDonald Jr. and Richard MacDonald Sr.

And last, what would you like to see in the future of art in Laguna Beach? Laguna Beach historically has had such a rich arts-oriented community. Since 2007 we have seen the decline in the number of active art galleries, as have so many other communities. My hope is that as we return to a healthier economy, many of the galleries return. Again, the arts are such an integral part of this community, as are the art galleries, and it’s just not the same without them. Visit Dawson Cole Fine Art at 326 Glenneyre, (949) 497-4988; dawsoncolefineart.com. Open daily and during First Thursday’s Art Walk (the first Thursday of each month) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

the avant-garde across several decades. Whereas Cubism, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism represented various embodiments of the vanguard in the first half of the 20th century, the second half brought Pop, performance, installation art, new media, and appropriation. With the pluralist tendencies of the 21st century, the challenge for artists to produce work that is new and innovative is more daunting than ever. The exhibition illustrates this evolution with approximately 100 artworks covering more than ninety years, and includes painting, sculpture, assemblage, installation art, and video in myriad styles that all speak to the revolutionary dynamic of the avantgarde. www.ocma.net

“Expressionism from Germany and France”

c

BY JOY SHANNON

urrently on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a truly historic exhibition, Expressionism from Germany and France, which presents Expressionism as an international movement in an unprecedented way on an immense scale. The exhibit clearly traces how artists were responding to the pioneering Post-Impressionistic works of Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin and then building upon these ideas, while creating the early twentieth century movements of Fauvism, Expressionism and Cubism. The extensive exhibition features ninety paintings and fourth-five works on paper, and can viewed as a conversation amongst these artists, responding to each other in the most vital and immediate ways, during an incredibly fertile period of imagination and change for art during the early twentieth century. Specifically this exhibition is bringing together French and German works, wonderfully accompanied by the historical context of when and where the works were exhibited, collected and seen by artists. This show attempts to recapture a historical moment of great artistic inspiration. Viewers can see the unfolding of several pivotal movements of the early twentieth century, letting the paintings

Karl Schmidt-Rotluff, Reflective Woman, 1912 Brücke Museum, Berlin

themselves be the documents that visually tell the story of the ideas behind them. Viewers of this exhibition can see firsthand how Van Gogh's textures in thickly painted impasto, his use of bright, emotionally expressive color and his attempts at showing something deeper than just the surface of a scene, inspired the next generation of artists after him to take this concept even further. Alongside Van Gogh's inspiration, viewers can see how Gauguin commingled the physical reality of his subjects with emotional and spiritual realities, painted in curvilinear contours and bright blocks of color. Gauguin's fascination with non-Western cultures, especially seen in his paintings completed while he lived in Tahiti (which includes the 1901 work Polynesian Woman With Children on display in this show), provided additional inspiration for the next generation of artists. In the same room as various Van Gogh and Gauguin paintings, one can view how the next generation of artists like the German Expressionists Ernst Kirchner (see feature, pg 61) or Max Pechstein, painted their figurative subjects with bright colors in order to show their emotional reality, alongside their physical one. These artists began to take Van Gogh's and Gauguin's ideas even further, with brighter colors

42

LOCALARTS.COM


Paul Gauguin, Haystacks in Brittany, 1890 National Gallery of Art, Washingston

and more and more abstract leanings as the ideas of Cubism came into play. Inspiration from non-Western cultures, as seen in Gauguin's work, was also deeply entrenched in the work of the German Expressionist movement "Die Brücke" (The Bridge). Die Brücke artists, including Ernst Kirchner and Erich Heckel, were inspired by folk art and non-Western artistic traditions, which can be clearly seen in the bold lines of their printmaking work and angular approach to the figure in numerous paintings on display in this show. his exhibition wonderfully shows how these movements naturally responded to each other, as if in immediate and inspired conversation. This can most clearly be seen

in how the ideas of Cubism and Abstraction are introduced into the show. From the textural approach to a landscape of a Van Gogh to the great forms of Franz Marc's paintings, the ideas of Cubism breaking the world further down to shapes as seen in Robert Delauney's Eiffel Tower are a natural progression. Likewise, when artists like Van Gogh or Gauguin attempted to show both the physical world mixed with the spiritual and emotional world, artists like Ernst Kirchner took that further with his emotionally charged figures as seen in Street, Berlin. This exhibition also clearly shows how taking all physically recognizable objects out of a work to solely show the emotional experience, as seen in the abstract work of Wassily Kandisnky, was a natural progression from these ideas.

Wassily Kandinsky, Sketch I for Painting with White Border, 1913, Phillips Collection, ©2014 Wassily Kandinsky (ARS)

Most importantly, though, viewers can see how each of these artists contributed important ideas to the twentieth century with each of their independently directed careers. Each artist was part of the visual conversation, yet every one of these works shown in this exhibition, from the smallest work on paper to the largest of paintings, stands on its own as contributing to the history of art as we know it to this day. Considering some of the rough roads some of these artists and their paintings endured, from Van Gogh not living to see his work being acclaimed to the German Expressionists and all modern art in Germany being condemned by Hitler during World War II, we cannot celebrate this work enough.

Ernst Kirchner, Street, Berlin, (detail) 1913

Honoring The Art of German Expressionist Ernst Kirchner

A

by Joy Shannon

nytime I come across an Ernst Kirchner painting in a museum, I cannot help but stand before it in reverence for longer than I usually might before most great works of the twentieth century. Kirchner's works have an emotional depth and intensity that emanates from them, that one could feel regardless of knowing anything about the artist or his fate. One could still gather an immense amount of profound humanity from his works, Ernst Kirchner, Nollendorfplatz, 1912

even if one just casually read the museum placard next the work: "Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, 18801938" and did not know the significance of the date 1938 and Kirchner's ultimately tragic story. Knowing the story, I feel, gives his work a greater emotional weight. Kirchner was a founding member of the German Expressionist group called "Die Br端cke" (The Bridge) which formed in 1905, around the same time as their contemporaries in France, Les Fauves (The Wild Beasts), were carrying on Van Gogh's legacy of bright, expressive colors and thick impasto oil paint. Die Br端cke, sought to create a bridge between the past, present and future, with their art style, by responding to the styles of German Renaissance painting and printmaking masters such Albrecht D端rer and Matthias Gr端newald, while creating in step with contemporary international avant-garde movements like Les Fauves and another German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), which included Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc. The movement's manifesto reveals the movement's youthful idealism: "We call all young people together, and as young people, who continued on pg. 62

carry the future in us, we want to wrest freedom for our actions and our lives from the older, comfortably established forces." While the group disbanded in 1911, the artists involved maintained their individual careers, which the group helped them each establish. Kirchner became known for his vibrant oil painting compositions which, partially influenced by some Cubist ideas, often distorted perspective in angular forms. Kirchner, as well as many of his contemporaries, also included influences from African art or other non-Western art forms, in their bright patterns, forms and depictions of the figure. The most important goal of Kirchner and his fellow Expressionists was to go far deeper than painting the surface of things, as they saw the ImpresMarcella, 1909 sionists before them as solely doing. Like the pioneering painters Van Gogh and Gauguin, who painted both physical, emotional and spiritual realities together on the same surface, the German Expressionists like Kirchner wanted to "express" something more deeply soulful, emotional and spiritual, as he eluded to in the manifesto of "Die Brücke": "Anyone who directly and honestly reproduces that force which impels him to create belongs to us." This "force", be it explained as a connection to the divine within each individual or the very inexplicable energetic force which gives each of us life and the desire to create and do and connect, this "force" seems to emanate from Kirchner's canvases.

because it was often inspired by non-Western cultures which his racist doctrine deemed inferior. Kirchner was forced to resign from the Prussian Academy of Arts and wrote shortly afterwards: "Here we have been hearing terrible rumors about torture of the Jews, but it’s all surely untrue. I’m a little tired and sad about the situation up there (in Germany). There is a war in the air. In the museums, the hard-won cultural achievements of the last 20 years are being destroyed, and yet the reason why we founded the Brücke was to encourage truly German art, made in Germany. And now it is supposed to be un-German. Dear God. It does upset me".

In 1937, Hitler created a touring art exhibition called Tragically, both World Wars "Entartete Kunst" (Degenerate had negative consequences for Art) which featured the modthe German Expressionists and ern art which the Nazi's had especially Kirchner. Kirchner confiscated from Germany's enlisted in World War I, but sufmuseums. The show was held fered a mental breakdown while in dark, cramped spaces and on duty and was sent home. He was designed to mock the art was hospitalized for some time works which it featured. A total in Switzerland to recover from of 639 works by Kirchner had his illness. He eventually settled been taken out of Germany's in Switzerland, and continued to museums and 25 were feapaint and exhibit his work tured in the "Entartete Kunst" through the rest of his life.

On the 15th of June 1938, Kirchner shot himself in front of his home in Switzerland. When Hitler came to power in 1933, everything changed for modern artists in Germany. Because Hitler hated modern art, his policies forced modern artists to resign from positions teaching at art academies or as museums directors and the Nazi party did a clean sweep of Germany's museums, removing all the modern art from their walls. Hitler considered all modern art "entartete," or degenerate,

Truly, Kirchner was another victim of Hitler's war; a great artist who lost the majority of his career's works to a fascist leader's racist policies. So, whenever I see a work of Kirchner's- along with any of the other effected German Expressionists- displayed with honor and respect, I must linger a while and pay my own respects.

Bringing this all to life is no small task and requires thousands of hours of effort before the gates ever open. An army of staff, artists and volunteers toil for months in advance, in an effort to present amazing works of art in three very special settings.
