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.
