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.
Presenting Kendell Carter: Excerpts from the Book of Love, a solo exhibition of Los Angeles based artist Kendell Carter. Featuring six artworks from four moments in the artist’s oeuvre over the past decade; the objects exemplify the artist’s enduring commitment to pursue the notion of Love as a radical catalyst of transformation and change. Organized in conjunction with Edward Cella Art+Architecture, the exhibition is part of an ongoing series of collaborations opening dialogs between artists, designer professionals and collectors in Los Angeles and beyond.
