The

Signature

Gallery

“Color My World” T he Signature Gallery on Forest Avenue in beautiful downtown Laguna Beach is constantly alive with color – rich hues, juicy textures, and a fun mixture of subjects. It’s a happy place where the diversity of styles and subjects create a visual current of energy - an aesthetic flow that by itself makes for an enjoyable and memorable experience. Just wandering through the gallery is uplifting. And

"Every piece should be viewed differently. The moment my painting catches your eye, a new journey has begun! I leave room for the imagination; imperfection and abstraction are present in my work to show that aesthetic beauty can emerge from a simple environment."

– Joëlle Blouin Sunset Drive, Joëlle Blouin

color is everywhere, not just the paintings, but many of the sculptures display a pop of color - unusual in 3-dimensional work.

“Painting energizes me. I want this feeling of playfulness and energy in a painting - a boldness. And I love color - almost to the point of obsession. I keep my colors clean and the lines are always moving."

– Cara Moran But the palpable excitement of the place is a result of serious professional artists creating exceptional work where serious collectors can find a gem by true artisans. From celebrated painter, Charles Pabst, whose legContinued on page 20

endary landscapes have graced homes and estates of the elite for decades, to the more recent sensation, Joelle Blouin, whose subject

“Painting is like building a ship. You build it and send it on its way, hopefully, to bring pleasure to other people. My reward isn’t the end product. My reward is the creation. The experience of painting – that’s the adventure."

– Charles Pabst

"I like listening to music and painting as if I were a jazz musician. A color gets laid down, the song changes and I begin to move in a different direction."

– Reid Richardson and style has a more edgy urban look. Browse and enjoy, you’ll find something that speaks to the color in your world. The Signature Gallery is located at 220 Forest Avenue in Laguna Beach. For additional information, call (949)376-4244, email art@thesignaturegallery.com, or visit www.thesignaturegallery.com.

Celebrate the Legacy Laguna Plein Air Painters Association

Laguna Beach Art Association, circa 1908

FEATURE

A

s early as 1886, plein air painters came to Laguna Beach to paint the clear and intense light that characterizes the sheer natural beauty of our coastal community. These artists, who would become the founders of the California Impressionist Style, included William Wendt, George Garden Symons, Granville Redmond, Franz A. Bischoff, Frank Cuprien, Anna Hills, Donna Schuster and Edgar Payne, among many others. Norman St. Clair is credited with establishing Laguna Beach as an Artists’ Colony around 1903. LPAPA’s Plein Air Project The Laguna Plein Air Painter’s Association (LPAPA) mission is to preserve the history of the plein air movement of 19th century California, to support the tradition as it exists today, and to foster a network among plein air painters nationwide. LPAPA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization based in Laguna Beach, California, with a membership and art community presence on a national and global level. It was founded in Laguna Beach in 1996

LPAPA is considered the steward of Laguna’s artistic legacy with a mission dedicated to preserving the plein air tradition of painting for future generations. LPAPA shares a parallel centennial history with the present day Laguna Art Museum. In keeping with tradition, LPAPA curates a new show every month at their LPAPA In Residence Gallery, located at Forest & Ocean Gallery 480 Ocean Ave Laguna Beach. The Plein Air Project is LPAPA’s Education Program lead by its Director of Education and signature artist member Jeff Sewell, Director of Community Relations and artist member Celeste Gilles, and LPAPA’s In Residence Gallery talks

Founded by dwan in a storefront in westwood in 1959, the dwan gallery was a leading avant-garde space during the 1960s, presenting groundbreaking exhibitions by edward Kienholz, yves Klein, Franz Kline, claes oldenburg, robert rauschenberg, ad reinhardt, and robert smithson, among others. a keen follower of contemporary French art, dwan gave many of the nouveau réalistes their first shows in the u.s. in 1965 she established a second space in new york city; dwan new york would go on to provide the first platform for now-major tendencies in the history of contemporary art including minimal art, land art, and conceptual art. she was a leading patron of earthworks and sponsored major projects including: heizer’s double negative (1969) and city: complex one (begun 1972); smithson’s spiral Jetty (1970); de maria’s 35-pole lightning Field (1974); and charles ross’s star axis (begun 1971).

Sculptor Antje Campbell at Festival of Arts For Sculptor, Antje Campbell, the human figure is her canvas to explore the themes that occupy her heart. She is seduced by simple forms and pays attention to negative space. Antje's palette for her ceramic work is inspired by the nuance of tones and shades found in her succulent garden. Her surface texture is achieved by layers of glazes and multiple firings in the kiln. Her newest body of work " When I Survey",

dwells on our inner spiritual life. Her bronze figures express emotion and story through minimal form. The patinas are classic with organic Carrara marble bases that adds another dimension to her work. See Antje’s imaginative work through August at the Festival of Arts. See pg 34.

The Irvine Museum Collection at the University of California, Irvine presents:

Dusk till Dawn May 27 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; September 28 Dusk till Dawn is an exhibition that goes against the grain of what we typically think of as landscape painting. Usually, an artist will paint a beautiful landscape bursting in bright sunlight with colorful trees and flowers, things one would expect to see during the day. This exhibition is different, as the paintings on display show those same subjects but at night or at the outer edges of the day, when the sun is setting or when it is rising.

A Remedy for Chaos: The Surrealist World of

Remedios

VARO by Joy

Remedios Varo

Farewell, 1958

Art can be such a needed and welcome respite from the troubles of this world. One can see this most clearly when looking back upon the careers of artists who weathered the massive political and social upheaval of the first half of the twentieth century. One such artist whose work embodies a peaceful, intriguing and often mystical retreat from such chaos, is the Spanish-born Surrealist Remedios Varo. Varoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream-like pieces depict androgynous creatures within spiritual atmospheres, with references to mysticism, alchemy and sacred geometry. Creating work that strikingly stands universally outside of any time and place, Varo combines influences from Christian Gothic altar pieces, the Renaissance-era paintings of the enigmatic Hieronymus Bosch, the drafting craftsmanship she learned from her engineer father and Eastern and Western mysticism. As in Eastern Yogism or Western Gnosticism, Varoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works discuss the idea of personal alchemy, or personal transformation and en-

works. Finally settling in Mexico City, where she painted until the end of her life in 1963, Varo stated, “I have found the tranquility that I have always searched for.”

Perhaps the theme of Remedios Varo's life was set first by her namesake given to her by her mother, who named her “Remedios” in honor that she was a “remedy” for her mother’s sorrow over the loss of a previous child. Varo, born in Spain in 1908, was forced to flee two wars, the Spanish Civil War and Nazi-occupied France, in order to find the peace she needed to keep creating her mystical

aro began her career amongst the avant garde of Barcelona. Notably, Varo spent time with Spanish Surrealists Óscar Domínguez and Esteban Francés, along with the French Surrealist poet, Benjamin Péret, who became her partner of some years. In 1937, after the Spanish Civil War erupted, Varo followed Péret to Paris where they stayed together until it was occu-

pied by the Nazis. They fled to Mexico City in 1941, where Varo remained to the end of her days, painting the most famous of her works towards the end of her life in the 1950s and early 60s. While Varo was introduced to perhaps her most famous Mexican painter contemporaries, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, she seemed to keep mostly to herself and a tight-knit few ex-patriot artist friends, including the Surrealists Leonora Carrington and Kati Horna. Art historians have interpreted both Friday Kahlo’s and Varo’s work as reflecting similar cultural paradigms. Amongst the Surrealist movement of the early twentieth century, female artists were often not taken as seriously as their male artistic counterparts. The struggle for personal identity can be interpreted very distinctly in Kahlo’s works, while Varo’s less-obviously personal subject matter may hide the struggles with identity within their presentation of the spiritual mysteries.

VARO Cosmic Energy, 1956

Intriguingly, Varo’s works delve beyond the confines of gender- and may be even beyond identity itself- to the gender-less spirit world, where her androgynous characters seem to play with the vibrations of music, create experiments of alchemy and transform their worlds into wondrous havens for the soul. Perhaps that is Varo’s greatest alchemy of all: she created a remedy for chaos within her art.
