Matthias Reinmuth: Rise at TL PDC

April 12 through June 4, 2021

Composed of pure colors placed side by side and on top of each other that amalgamate weightlessly to shine and glow; Matthias Reinmuth considers his paintings to be emotional landscapes reflecting the constant flow of sounds, images and information that converge in our lives. Fascinated by the flow of fluctuating and simultaneous images that we experience in media and social networks; he seeks to represent the rush and blur of this information both conceptually and visually as one of his primary projects as a painter.

View the exhibition in person Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM with appropriate social distancing measures in place.

Chris Trueman Exhibition Now at TL

Edward Cella Art & Architecture presents a new body of works by Chris Trueman in an exhibition entitled, Absence of Atmosphere. Embracing a world of emptiness, where everything seems to exist on the verge of dissolution or liquefaction; Trueman creates layered supercharged compositions of gestural paintings with shifting grounds and unsettled relationships of foreground and background.

In the artist’s third solo show with the gallery, Trueman marks a new relationship in his practice with the Light and Space movement so indelible to the art of the West Coast. Confronting the perfection of surface, the new paintings are punctuated with unstable fluctuations and reversals yet saturated with daring atmospheric spectrums.

LESTER MONZON: COLLAPSE ANTONYM, a new exhibition at TL

LESTER MONZON: COLLAPSE ANTONYM
NOVEMBER 9, 2020 – JANUARY 8, 2012
at Thomas Lavin, Pacific Design Center

Built of gorgeous layers of graphite, acrylic and oil paints on top of a polished layer of gesso over Belgian linen; Los Angeles based painter Lester Monzon advances of a complex system of abstractions that simultaneously posits the joy of painting and the destruction of painting. Through an intricate progression of building graph-like patterns and luscious, multi-colored gestures of paint; Monzon creates conditions for their erasure, loss, and failure.

Though Brooklyn born to immigrant parents, Monzon grew up in Southern California and found his interest in art though his childhood love of comic books. Creating his own, Monzon began a lifelong passion for drawing, painting and bold movements of color – not to mention the Ben Day like dots that have emerged as significant motif in his recent series of paintings.

Shahla Friberg: Redirection, a new exhibition at TL

SHAHLA FRIBERG: REDIRECTION
4 SEPTEMBER – 30 OCTOBER 2020
at Thomas Lavin, Pacific Design Center

Edward Cella Art & Architecture presents Shahla Friberg: Redirection, a solo exhibition of gleaming and reflective glass sculptures of Shahla Friberg radiate like beacons drawing us in to experience new realities. Featuring both free standing and wall mounted forms of mirrored and stained glass; the unique hand-built construction engages viewers with surprising vistas and visceral experiences of color and light. The sparkling works ultimately alter our expectations and, by extension, perception itself.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is a massive wall installation of mirrored glass entitled, Glissando. Taken from the musical term that describes the continuous glide or sweep from one pitch to another; Friberg’s selection of the title underscores her work’s essential relationship with movement. Although static, each sculpture offers a kinetic, immersive experience mediated by the viewer’s movement and interactions. Activated and becoming further alive with the daily and seasonal shifts of sunlight reflected in their prism like surfaces; Friberg engages with fundamentals of time, space, and dimension.

February ‘Collingo’ Calendar from Tibor

February is Persimmon.

Shown here: Raw Coral Persimmon and Buckingham Flame

Our friends at Tibor are sending out monthly inspo based on ‘Collingo’, Tibor Reich’s unique color language created in 1956.

Sixty years later, Tibor still uses this system in their design studio when dealing with color.

The color spectrum, derived from the earth to the sun, is divided into tonal color groups. It’s Tibor’s way of organising colors.

Tibor Reich however, used it for every day life, in his house, on his folders, filing cabinets, telephones, fabric ranges and diaries – a true pioneer!
