L e Brea between Beverly and 3rd has long been an vibrant section of Hollywood to explore, with new shops and restaurants opening up and old standbys continuing to draw a loyal crowd. In the midst of the buzz, an exciting project about to launch has been the restoration of the old Continental Graphics building, which sits between 1st & 2nd street. Part of “District La Brea” reuse development project, the upper floors of the building are being outfitted to hold the new offices of the creative & marketing powerhouse Troika and already they have established their presence with the installation of three large-scale pieces from Cuban artist Esterio Segura’s iconic series Goodbye My Love. Created by hand out of fiberglass by the artist in his Havana studio, bright red airplane wings burst from either side of giant hearts, spanning 14 feet from tip to tip, hovering in formation as if ready to fly off towards the hills. Laguna Beach gallery saltfineart worked with the Irvinebased installer Alan Scott who personally hung each plane along with the artist and a crew. Troika was on hand to document the entire process, taking these fascinating pictures of the work being permanently placed in its new home.

The Laguna Beach gallery’s 12 artists are a tight knit group of painters and sculptors, easily allowing the artists and collectors to know each other on a personal level; developing relationships and creating lifetime memories. The range of work here includes a mixture of both modern and traditional influences. On the traditional, more impressionistic end of the spectrum, is the Pabst family of artists. Charles Pabst's paintings hang side by side with his son, Michael Pabst's, as well as daughter, Cara Pabst Moran’s. While the family member's styles differ all three share the same deep reverence for nature and the mastery of classical composition and lighting. The modern paintings of abstract expressionist, Jenny Simon, and cubist, Joëlle Blouin, add a powerful contrast to the Pabsts’ work. Jenny uses bold colors, and unique hands-on techniques for thickly layering paint to create rich eye-catching textures. Joëlle, innovator of the modern cubist technique, adds her own spin to contemporary cityscapes, using minimal color

marc whitney Whitney Gallery in Laguna Beach By Torrey Cook

m

arc Whitney is widely recognized by collectors and artists alike as one of the most talented living painters of the classical realist tradition. Marc’s signature Marc Whitney captures of life - unmade beds, nudes, floral arrangements, are found in museums and private collections around the globe, he is courted by some of the most prestigious galleries in the world, but he is proud to call Laguna Beach home. Marc considers his paintings poetic and they are... as is his life. Whitney began his formal art education at age 14, when he received a summer scholarship to what is now the Laguna College of Art + Design. It was the late 60‘s and he bummed rides into Laguna from Huntington Beach to study by day, and hang out with local working artists at night. It was a colorful time for Laguna- a time of no rules and wild fun and he soaked it all in. In his first few years of college while taking science classes and looking for his path, he met a girl who had a paint set. He asked to borrow her paint set and fell in love. She swept him off his feet and in turn, he swept her off hers. Together they traveled to Philadelphia, where he spent a decade in intensive classical training at several art schools including the Frudakis Academy of Fine Arts, the University of the Arts, and the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In the early 90‘s, Jackie and Marc would later marry and return to Laguna Beach and when other gallery owners didn’t “get” his work, the solution was easy - they opened their own space. Marc’s work speaks to people in an intelligent manner - allowing each viewer to have a unique experience. His paintings not overly cluttered with a multitude of items, with the focus on mood, philosophy and storytelling - a highly personal experience. It was only natural that Jackie be the one to sell Marc’s work. Over the past twenty years, Marc and Jackie have been a staple of the Laguna art community and now have collectors all over the world. Marc and Jackie warmly welcome

visitors to their gallery and it is easy to spend an afternoon talking art and life. In turn, Laguna has bonded with them. Fittingly to those who live next door to the massive body entity called the Pacific, Marc focuses more energy on water. He paints before or after a rainstorm when the ocean is at her moodiest, creating a sense of drama through large atmospheric brush strokes. Like a soulful layered melody that walks softly but draws you in with glorious polyphony, his pieces are masterful works. Whitney Gallery is located in the heart of downtown Laguna Beach at 305 Forest Avenue. For additional information and hours, please visit marcwhitney.com or call (949) 497-4322.

GATIONS. Written by Evan Senn

Newly represented by Unix Gallery in New York/Miami, and finished with his Miami debut of multiple new works, including an 11-foot painting, Justin Bower has been nearly dominating the contemporary painting market for going on almost three years. This philosopher turned painter is steeped in art history and larger than life influences, but his paintings will knock you to the floor with powerful and disarming reflection.

LOCALARTS.COM

Internal Dialect, 2013 7’x 6’


With major write ups in Artillery Magazine, KCET, Modern Painters, Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, Complex, The Other Journal, Arrested Motion and more, Bower is not only making a name for himself in contemporary art, he is also carving out a stronger place for Orange County in the contemporary art scene as well. Bower has experienced a great streak of success since graduating with an MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2010. He has received major art world notice, and immediate gallery representation after graduating, with Ace Gallery and the infamous Doug Christmas. Working with such prestigious galleries and being shown in art fairs around the world with Ace, Bower’s large scale disruptive faces have been affecting people the world over. Though the power of his paintings lies in the discomforting, anxiety-inducing, huge human faces, buyers and collectors have been snatching up his work wherever they can, cleaning out his inventory of work almost completely.

manity . . . it’s through the senses that we see and discover that we are human, our humanity; and the understanding of others is through the face and the eyes . . . even just a micron of a twitch has tremendous meaning behind it [in the face] . . . The eyes are the sea to the soul, so they say. That’s where I started.” His work is reminiscent of traditional portraiture, but thoroughly messed up. In images of his large-scale paintings, many people think they are digital manipulations or reproductions of photos of people. Parts of the paintings are so photo-realistic it seems uncanny, while other parts are pushed and pulled, mixing the paint with its neighboring counterparts, like digitizing pixels of the image.

As he is preparing a new few pieces for the LA Art Show in January, and looking to expand into the European and Asian art markets, he reflects on his intentions and purpose in creating these stark and haunting portrayals of humanity.

He says he was influenced early on by watching Sergio Leone films and the intriguing and intense tight-crops on actors’ faces in the films, giving way for the actor to completely control an emotion, a moment, a feeling—so much changes with just a slight movement in the face. “A distorted face disturbs people more, or affects them stronger . . . the face is an entryway to where I’m going, in terms of what I want to say.”

“My work has a lot to do with the subject, and the autonomy of the subject, in a way,” Bower says. “So when I speak of ‘the subject,’ what we’re talking about is hu-

It’s more of an investigation than a portrait for Bower. He wants to disarm the power of the traditional portrait, and truly contextual it in contemporary

Dissonant Accord, 2013 Detail

BOWER life. Bower is a stellar artist, really just looking for a common denominator in our humanity, and exploring it through art. Bower’s paintings wretch and wrangle with the viewer, pushing and pulling on what we know and what we see—his large-scale deconstructed faces are beautiful and haunting. Close-ups of clean and beautiful faces—distorted, almost glitched-looking—bringing a consciousness to technology and recalling our human presence in that technology. The glitch that he plays on really recalls a kind of reevaluation of our existence, they way we know it. The double—sometimes triple—eyes seem to be the most alarming characteristic of his creations right off the bat. His digitally-themed exploratory surgery of these faces seem like an exploratory surgery into our contemporary idea of what it means to live. It’s shocking to look at one of his paintings and realize that it is a painting. There is so much meaning and self-reflection that can be evoked in just a glance at one of these pieces, you almost forget its just paint. But that is the beauty of this world, isn’t it? The power of the image, the power of art. Bower lives in Orange County, and still relies on his own sort of “crit group” among professionals and friends, but loves the fact that he is slightly removed LOCALARTS.COM

from the L.A. scene. “I don’t really like L.A. . . It’s nice to be away and do your thing. When there are important things I’ll go up, for openings, and stuff . . . I want it kind of separate from career ideas and work ideas.” He enjoys keeping things a little separated, work, PR, family, friends, and Orange County’s is the calm, often ignored sibling to L.A.’s hustle and bustle— much appreciated by Bower. Orange County doesn’t often get the recognition for bringing great artists into the global art scene, but Bower is one of the most powerful we’ve seen in years. Bower’s conceptual creativity seems to take the most of his studio time. His conceptual themes have been hovering over these visual metaphors of manipulated faces, but in the future he’s excited to explore similar but different ideas, still circling the subject of human existence. “I’d really like to try and put these faces— zoom out as they say—and put these figures in environments,” Bower says. “Really work with the whole ontology of what it means to be human, the beingness, which would mean the environment will be fractured. I really want it to be, to be revolutionary, for me, in terms of my work. It’s moving the subject into environments that are unknown. Cuz that’s how I really feel, we’re moving so quickly, and also from there I can really critique the society’s control, the code that is moving in and out, the disfigurement, the whole gambit of science, technology meeting philosophy, art, and yeah—just creating a whole state of a ‘theatre of becoming..’”

By Torrey Cook

rt Cube is one of my favorite galleries in Laguna Beach. A small but powerful space, Art Cube showcases what contemporary art should be—insightful, provocative, unique in conception and most importantly well executed. Art Cube owner Sanja Simidzija has been in the art business for almost two decades and has never abandoned her position that Laguna Beach is a destination for great contemporary art. Simidzija is a brilliant curator and represents some of the most collectible contemporary artists working today. It is an honor to chat with her about Art Cube and the impact of contemporary art. Sanja, please tell us what year you opened Art Cube and what your aspirations were when you opened? I opened Art Cube five years ago. I have been in art galleries for 15 years, started as a sales person, continuing to move up until I finally made it to a partner in Laguna Fine Art which was located next to Art Cube. Laguna Fine Art specialized in the masters, works of Matisse, Picasso, Rembrandt, Chagall, and I was there for 5 years. Even though I enjoy that type of art, it wasn't what I personally related to. I always wanted a contemporary gallery, so when the opportunity arose location wise, I took it.I believe everything in life happens for a reason, and I feel I got the opportunity to own the gallery I wanted at a time when I had grown enough to be ready for it.. How have you grown/ changed since then? What new directions are you going in, or wanting to explore? With art you grow every day. Every time you look at new artist you learn something new . . . every time you live with great work you learn something new . . . it is truly a road of self-discovery and growth. If you are a collector and have yet to experience that feeling, you have the wrong art! I really think that's what makes art so addicting. Seeing something you've never seen before is so inspiring; you feel connected to something divine for a moment. There are not many things in life you can say that about. Can you tell us about your curation process? How do you pick artists? And can you talk about a few of the artists you represent? My curatorial process is purely instinctive . . . I just feel it, or don't! I never have to think about it, contemplate, compare. I don't care what the trend is or what anybody else in showing. I don't care what is popular (actually despise what 's popular) or what people usually buy. Mark Twain once said that if everybody likes it, then it is time to change it.

I tried, in these five years several times to pick with my brain and the "wallet" instead of my heart . . . It just doesn't work, I never end up selling that type of more commercial work. As far as artists, I love all the work, obviously, but if I had to choose just a few, one Jason Pearson would be Gustavo Lopez Armentia, an Argentinean artist. I could write human suffering and pain. Bill was on of the first artists I took on, and I actually a book about why I love his work and why bought one of his pieces before I even had is it important, but in short, he is one of the gallery.

Last, please tell me a little about your own Art and art background. My degree is in Organizational Business Management, mostly because my mother did not want me to be a starving artist. I took lots of art classes in collage and it has been my passion since I was a teenager. I always had an ability to connect with art. It always spoke to me. My first job when I moved to U.S. from Serbia was in an art gallery. I used to drive two hours every day to work in a Beverly Hills gallery. I am still on the same path 15 years later and I feel like I just started. Art Cube gallery is located at 226 Forest Avenue, Laguna Beach.

T

he California Scene Paintings now on exhibition at the Irvine Museum are not only visually engaging works of art, but they also provide a pictorial link to the social history of California between the years 1930 and 1970.

Through the medium of oil paints and watercolors, key artists from that period captured on canvas and paper the look and feel of what was going on around them in Los Angeles and San Francisco. They also traveled to the suburbs, farming communities and coastal cities where they continued to be inspired by what they saw and experienced.

California Scene Painting AT THE IRVINE MUSEUM BY GORDON MCCLELLAND

when the state was forming and as recent as today. That said; there was clearly a Golden Era for this type of art. It was during the forty year period between 1930 and 1970, a time when these works dominated the California art scene and also received national exposure and acclaim as part of the larger Regionalist, W.P.A. and American Scene art movements.

The term California Scene Paintings was first used by Los Angeles Times art critic Arthur Millier in the early 1930’s to This show describe repreprovides an opsentational art portunity to specifically creview some of ated to capture the best known scenes of everyEdward Reep, Cafe, 1947 Watercolor, 22 x 30 inches examples of day life in CaliVan & Diane Simmons Collection California fornia.

Maurice Logan, San Francisco Ferry Depot, c1930 O/C, 22 x 35 in. Simon K. Chiu Collection

While all the art at The Irvine Museum show was produced by very competent and creative professional artists, the real focus of this exhibition is on the subject matter and the arts ability to provide an engaging glimpse into everyday life in California during a particular span of time. The art from the 1930s decade captures what was going on throughout the Great Depression in California. The mood and images range from a depiction of downtrodden men on the streets of Downtown Los Angeles to an upbeat depiction of celebrating people riding a cable car in San Francisco. A coastal scene of artist Mary Blair enjoying the beautiful day on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is shown alongside a view of a beach community in Laguna and a crowded park scene near Olvera Street in Los Angeles. Also from this 1930s era are California Style Watercolors produced by artists that worked in the Hollywood animation film industry. They became masters of the watercolor painting medium and often their works reflect a certain type of whimsical humor that seemed to be a mandatory requirement for those who worked on cartoon shorts and full length animation feature films at the Walt Disney Studios.

LOCALARTS.COM


Millard Sheets, Horses and Hills, 1932 O/C 40 x 50 inches Ray Redfern Collection

Other subject matter that speaks loudly of the 1930s includes a painting of a huckster selling his wares from a table he set up on a Long Beach carnival midway. California ranching is represented with a spectacular oil painting of late afternoon ranching activities in San Luis Obispo. A night scene on Bunker Hill in Los Angeles provides a glimpse into life in that community. The World War Two years inspired a painting depicting Navy sailors riding a carrousel at an amusement park in San Diego and a large scale watercolor that depicts an early morning bugle call with soldiers in training at a base in Riverside. Another work is a classic film noir inspired painting of people in automobiles getting food service from car hops at a drive in on Wilshire Blvd. in the Beverly Hills area. An Ed Reep watercolor depicts a 1940s era cafĂŠ built near Venice Beach to serve oil derrick workers, while a moody Modesto farm scene from the same time period represents rural life in the northern central valley. Chinatown San Francisco with all its colorful glory and a factory scene near Wilmington represent scenes of the transitional period into the 1950s.

During the mid-century and up to 1970 freeways were built in California providing much better access to coastal communities. As a result these areas became much more developed as the California beach and surf culture gained popularity. A modern cubist inspired watercolor of the Embarcadero Freeway under construction in San Francisco is included; as is an abstract style 1960s work depicting beatnik and hippie boat dwellers at Sausalito. The Southern California beach and surf culture is represented by a scene of surfers and sunbathers at Playa Del Rey. An oil painting and a watercolor focus attention on the Orange County beach culture at Corona Del Mar and include the sailing activities in Newport Harbor. In totality, these paintings work together to provide a very special kind of art and cultural experience for viewers. Seeing this exhibition is a way to view incredibly well designed and painted fine art and at the same enjoy a sort of time travel to a very interesting time in California history when the state was rapidly changing and developing in many different ways.

Timothy, a fine art photographer, recently opened Mark Timothy Gallery in historic Gallery Row on north Coast Highway. Timothy, forever exploring and innovating, shoots on location and in studio using various techniques to create his unique and surreal images. “I photograph natural light patterns and movements, sometimes blurred to take away the hard edges, capturing and revealing the core energy."

Art NouveAu: The New Style for the New Millennium by Joy Shannon

Alphonse Mucha, Biscuits Leferve- Utile, 1896

A

s the turn of the twentieth century loomed, a widespread desire for idealistic change swept the Western art world. Artists, designers and architects sought to slough off the classical motifs that had dominated Western design since the ancient Greco-Roman world Antoni Gaudi, Casa Batllo, 1904

and create a new art for a new millennium. The style became known as Art Nouveau, or the new art, and was deeply influenced by the earlier "Arts and Crafts" movement of the 1860s through the 1910s already established in England, Canada and the United States. The Arts and Crafts movement idealized decorative arts created by a master craftsman over the factory-made objects of the Industrial Age. While the Art Nouveau movement did not strictly adhere to the principles of handmade artisan work as seen in the Arts and Crafts movement, it brought its nature-inspired organic design style to the mainstream. Named after a shop called "L'Art Nouveau" in Paris, the movement swept across France, Belgium, Holland, England and the United States between the 1890s and the start of World War I. Art Nouveau was an idealistic, youthful style, which celebrated the new generation of the new century. In Austria, the style was even called "Jugernstil" which means the style of the youth. In Spain the style was called "Modernisme," or the continued on pg. 62

modern style, and in Italy it was called "Floreale," or liberty, in celebration of how Art Nouveau and the new century was idealistically leaving the past behind. Whatever its name, the style was defined by natural imagery, asymmetrical, irregular shapes and swirling, organic lines. The artists of the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements were reacting against the industrial revolution of the Victorian age which began to pump out mass-produced factory-made objects. Artists of these movements saw these factory-made objects as soulless and inorganic, and they desired to create a style that was the complete opposite: organic, soulful, fresh, and deeply inspired by nature. The Arts and Crafts movement rejected the factory system by reviving interest in handmade crafts like stained glass, iron-working, tapestry work, carpentry, tile work and jewelry-making. Art Nouveau artists would combine many of these crafts in their designs, while also not shying away from using technological innovations like lithography and machined surfaces in pursuit of the perfect design.

Tiffany, Dragonfly Lamp,

There were many notable artists who came to define the Art Nouveau style. The Czech illustrator Alphonse Mucha, who worked for much of his career in Paris, defined the style in the advertising arts with his trademark swirling lines and classical goddess-esque women. Architect Antonio Gaudi helped create the "Modernisme" style in Spain by building his organic nature-inspired buildings throughout Barcelona. Gaudi's buildings were unlike anything in architecture ever seen before, combining ironwork, tile, glass, and stucco in undulating shapes

reminiscent of caves, beehives, or coral reefs. Belgian architect Victor Horta designed romantic Art Nouveau interiors which fused swirling decorative metal tracery, glass work, moldings, furniture and draperies to create organic, light-filled spaces. American designer Louis Comfort Tiffany helped to define Art Nouveau in the United States, with his famous stained glass windows, lamps, ceramics, jewelry and metalwork. His famous dragonfly lamp design is still copied and reproduced to this day. A full century after Art Nouveau set out to create a new design for a new millennium, our culture still finds inspiration in the idealistic flourishes of its design style.

LOCALNEWS NOTES

Folino Theatre, home of South Coast Repertory

A Lengthy Frost The Irvine Museum recently published its 18th book, John Frost: A Quiet Mastery by Phil Kovinick. The impressionist landscape painter John Frost (1890-1937) was born into a family of artists, headed by his father, Arthur B. Frost,

of more than a decade of rigorous research. The volume's beautifully reproduced paintings reveal a master of California Impressionism who garnered attention for his evocative, poetic landscapes of the Golden State. The book features a forward by The Irvine Museum's president James Irvine Swinden, and an essay by the museum's Executive Director Jean Stern. It is available in soft and hard cover, is 240 pages, and features 300 color illustrations. www.irvinemuseum.org

John Frost: A Quiet Mastery

Sr., one of America's premier illustrators. After moving with his family to Paris and, later, Giverny to study painting, Frost contracted tuberculosis and spent several years recuperating in a sanatorium. In 1916, he traveled to the West, seeking adventure and a respite from his longtime battle with illness. While applying his classical art training to the dramatic vistas of California's and Arizona's deserts, he discerned how to capture their elusive colors and desolate splendor. John Frost: A Quiet Mastery, Phil Kovinick's definitive study of the artist, is the result

Galerie deJony celebrates their first year in San Juan Capistrano with a reception on March 1, 2014 marking five decades of work by owners Anne Marie and Theodore deJony. This creative partnership combines the paintings of Anne Marie and the photographs of Theodore which visitors often compare to Stieglitz and O’Keeffe. Theodore’s approach combines traditional technical virtuosity with creative execution. Anne Marie believes that

her paintings and poetry articulate a universal message of peace and emphasizes the significance of listening to one’s inner voice. www.galeriedejony.com
