Heather Day in LA Weekly

By Shana Nys Dambrot

Sept. 30, 2020

Heather Day's solo exhibition: "Ricochet" is featured in LA Weekly's Arts Calendar. 
"Heather Day’s abstraction canvases are both infused with the energy of the environment where they were made, and transcendent of all such circumstances. In one sense, her aesthetic is referential to its own world of painting, with influences of pioneers of early Ab Ex like Helen Frankenthaler and Sam Francis, and a studied, deliberate lexicon of palette and mark-making. A small smear in an otherwise ...

Farrah Karapetian's recent exhibition, "The Photograph is Always Now," is profiled in a LA Times feature about the impact of COVID-19 closures on artists and galleries

Art galleries stand darkened, empty of viewers. Like time capsules, their contents give evidence of the present day, sealed away like relics. Most shows cannot be visited, but they also aren’t coming down. They remain, like so much else, in a state of suspension.

Review: Farrah Karapetian, "The Photograph is Always Now," in Artillery Magazine

Annabel Osberg

Feb. 26, 2020

Farrah Karapetian’s current show, “The Photograph is Always Now,” is a touching rumination on the loss of her father, who died of cancer last year. Furthering her ongoing exploration of photography’s potential for semi-fictionally recasting bygones into the present, this body of work is perhaps her most personal yet. It is less about her father—who remains largely unidentified—than about the artist remembering watching him slip away. In pictures throughout the show, puddled and smeared photographic fluids ...

Review: "King Dogs Never Grow Old" in Artillery Magazine

by Avery Wheless

Jan. 23, 2020

Diane Rosenstein Gallery’s exhibition, King Dogs Never Grow Old, curated by Brooke Wise, invites us into a display of the uncanny, rocking traditional senses of stability and instead, celebrates the nonsensical. The show’s title, borrowed from the surrealist text, Les Champs Magnétiques (The Magnetic Fields) by André Breton and Philippe Soupault, set the stage for this integration of surrealist notions within a contemporary dialogue.

Perhaps most influential in achieving this direct reference to surrealism is the curation ...

The second installment of the two-part show on maternal politics and embodiment, the exhibition focuses on reproduction and the materiality of maternal bodies.  Curated by Catherine McCormack, the exhibition finds its starting point in the etymological root of the word “mother” as synonymous of matter (mater/materia in Latin) in a group show exploring female reproductive bodies in terms of material relations, both physical and political.  Eleanor ...

Jan. 16, 2020

"Borrowed from André Breton and Philippe Soupault’s surrealist text Les Champs Magnétiques (The Magnetic Fields), the show’s title alludes to exploring the nonsensical and the dreamlike unconscious. The work on view shares a common dialogue and aims to explore these surrealist notions in a contemporary manner.

Jillian Mayer and Haley Josephs use color and whimsy to address these surrealist concepts. Ginny Casey draws inspiration from classic Walt Disney cartoons and welcomes the spectator with distorted, absurd and ...

"A group show celebrates modern surrealism" by Lindsay Preston Zappas

The title of a group show at Diane Rosenstein, curated by Brooke Wise, is borrowed from a surrealist text. Per the press release, the collection of more than 20 artworks is meant to allude to a dreamlike unconscious. Certainly, some do, like Ginny Casey’s “Balancing Cat,” a bizarre painting of a preening cat-like creature balancing a plate and fruit atop its lumpy body.  Others, like Scott Reeder’s “Band Names” — in which the artist lists fictional band names like ...

Review: "Julian Stanczak: The Eighties" in the Los Angeles Times

"Art day in L.A.: A walker’s guide to gallery hopping along Highland Avenue," by Sharon Mizota

Oct. 1, 2019

My last stop was “Julian Stanczak: The Eighties,” at Diane Rosenstein Gallery. Stanczak, who died in 2017, was an early practitioner of Op Art, a movement that originated in the 1960s, emphasizing the optical effects of an artwork and the mechanics of perception. The 15 works on view all date from the 1980s and reflect Stanczak’s utter dedication to the style. They consist of nothing but stripes and discreet, mostly rectilinear blocks of color, but are so masterfully planned ...

"Julian Stanczak" by David S. Rubin

Sept. 14, 2019

Julian Stanczak (1928-2017) is often regarded to as a pioneer of Op Art (he was included in the 1965 groundbreaking Op Art exhibition “The Responsive Eye” at the Museum of Modern Art), but he preferred the term “visual energy” to “optical” when describing the perceptual effects of his paintings. As a student at Yale University, Stanczak studied with Josef Albers, who introduced him to the concept of “optical mixing,” which is what happens when contrasting colors interact to produce after-images ...

"19 Things Not to Miss in New York’s Art World This Week" by Katie White/Sara Cascone

Aug. 6, 2019

"The mind-melting heat of summer finds a visual equivalent in this exhibition of landscapes that are all in various ways synthetic, from toxic colored skies to looming, mammoth flora. The seven-person show hints at the enduring legacies of Henri Rousseau’s fantastical jungle scenes and Georgia O’Keeffe desert scenes. Emma Webster’s baroque-meets-Lisa-Frank scenes are at once decadent and dystopian." —Katie White

Michael Ajerman and Marty Schnapf each offer their own elegant and sensual images in two strong solo shows at Diane Rosenstein Gallery. While Ajerman works with vivid colors in his figurative oil paintings, Schnapf’s current body of work is in nearly-life-size black and white. Both offer deeply intimate expressions that are filled with energy and pulsing with life. There is a physicality to both artists’ work that makes them ideally paired, although the outward appearance of each exhibition is ...

"Unrepentant & Unapologetic Flowers Plus Small Stories" (Curated by Rhonda Gawthrop) May 18 - September 8, 2019 at Oceanside Museum of Art

April 19, 2019

Roland Reiss will receive a solo exhibitionn of paintings and miniatrues at the Oceanside Museum of Art, Oceanside, CA.  This exhibition features the floral series Reiss started in 2007, partly as a reaction to the notion of subject hierarchy in art. Working beyond the superficial meanings usually associated with flowers, Reiss uses color contrasts to explore expressive possibilities in a luminous world of color, believing they take us to a deeper level of consciousness. Viewed from far away, the flowers ...

Review: "Emma Webster: Arcadia" in Artillery

"Gallery Rounds: Emma Webster" by Cooper Johnson

March 11, 2019

The 19th-century landscape painter Albert Bierstadt may have been a deer whisperer, able to corral an entire herd to pose for “Among the Sierra Nevada, California,” but let’s be real. The deer are fake. 

In Emma Webster’s recent foray into landscape painting, she takes up art’s exalted tradition of deceit. Webster doesn’t paint nature itself, though, but depictions of nature; not a scene, but its construction. 

The paintings are of dioramas, where clay figurines and cut-out ...

Review: "Emma Webster: Arcadia" in Art and Cake

"Emma Webster at Diane Rosenstein Gallery" by Jody Zellen

March 6, 2019

In Arcadia, Emma Webster, a recent Yale MFA, creates landscape paintings that are a melange of styles and iconographies. She draws from historic painters like Bosch and Bierstadt to juxtapose their expansive, idyllic views and sense of scale and space with depictions of plastic foliage and quirky animal figurines. Webster begins by making small-scale tableaux and dioramas which she then translates into large-scale oil paintings. The fifteen works encapsulate a post modern interpretation of Arcadia that is more of a ...

Review: "Emma Webster: Arcadia" in ÆQAI

'Emma Webster’s Complicated Vistas of Human Nature in Dioramic Landscapes,' by Annabel Osberg

March 3, 2019

Nothing seems right in Emma Webster’s No Man’s Land (all works 2018): toadstools are weirdly spotlighted; wispy arboreal cutouts contain more than mere foliage; and a nearby cervine, possibly an antelope, is impossibly dwarfed by a distant moose. Such incongruities lead one to wonder: what sort of location does this painting depict?


Webster painted No Man’s Land and 14 other engrossing scenes in “Arcadia,” at Diane Rosenstein Gallery, from flashlight-illuminated miniature dioramas she had assembled of clay ...

Review: "Emma Webster: Arcadia" in Artforum

"Critic's Pick" by Tyler Malone

March 2, 2019

Sir Philip Sidney describes his Arcadia as “so perfect a model of the heavenly dwellings.” For “Arcadia,” her first solo exhibition, Emma Webster showcases painted landscapes of a similarly mythic locus amoenus. These canvases feature 2-D oil renderings of 3-D dioramas that she cobbles together in her studio. The maquettes juxtapose surreal bucolic scenery with clay animal figurines, plastic foliage, and art-historical iconography evoking everything from work by Albert Bierstadt to Francis BaconHieronymus Bosch to John Martin, and Western ...

Review: "Emma Webster: Arcadia" in Los Angeles Times

'Emma Webster’s landscapes take you into a sublime, magical world,' by David Pagel

Feb. 23, 2019

Emma Webster’s paintings are grand affairs: sweeping landscapes filled with forests and mountains and rivers and lakes, some bathed in golden light and others shrouded in shadows so deep you shudder. Albert Bierstadt’s majestic pictures of the American West come to mind, as do the sublime vistas painted by the Hudson River School. 


Webster’s oils on canvas are also modest: informal still lifes filled with toy-size creatures (often bunnies and butterflies, but also flamingos and penguins and ...

Review: KATSU: DRONE in Artillery Magazine, Jan-Feb 2019, by Shana Nys Dambrot

Jan. 8, 2019

Dynamics of style, technique, technology and authorship are at issue in an exhibition of new landscapes, portraits, still lifes, and abstractions by the painter KATSU. That’s not only due to the liberal citations of the Western art canon which feed his interpretations, but because of how he manifests them. He paints in a liminal space between the gestural hand of the artist and automated machinery, running a drone outfitted with spray enamel. Though normally thought of as an implement ...

"Eleanor Antin Revisits her Dieting Diary, 45 Years on, for LACMA Show" | The Art Newspaper

Artist who photographed herself naked every morning in 1972 has recreated her "Carving" work, to be shown in May 2019

Nov. 15, 2018

by Jori Finkel


When Eleanor Antin made the landmark feminist work Carving: A Traditional Sculpture in 1972—photographing herself naked every morning during a few weeks of hardcore dieting, at age 37—she was testing her physical stamina and vulnerability. But it takes another kind of bravery to revisit the project at age 82, which Antin has recently done. The project will make its debut alongside the original next May at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Lacma) in ...

KATSU in The Art Gorgeous

by Nadja Sayej, November 12, 2018

Nov. 13, 2018

The AI-made artwork that recently launched at Christie’s has been all the rage recently, as it garnered almost half a million dollars for its sale.

Meanwhile, a whole other movement of artists are experimenting with drone-made paintings. Katsu is one of them.

While most know him for his spray-painted billboard of Kendall Jenner in Times Square, his oeuvre is so much more. Katsu has made spray-painted drone paintings on canvas, which are on view at Diane Rosenstein Gallery in ...

"Anthony Giannini: Mess Head" in Artillery Magazine

Oct. 4, 2018

By Jody Zellen
October 3, 2018

It is not uncommon for an artist to begin with images from a personal archive amassed over time and use these fragments as a range of raw material. Anthony Giannini’s mixed media paintings are all about recontextualization. He draws from a wide range of sources (military field manuals, prayer rugs and online headline news photos) and thinks about each appropriated element as a small slice of the overwhelming amount of information available in ...

Natalie Ball in Artsy's "These 20 Female Artists Are Pushing Sculpture Forward"

By Tess Thackara

Aug. 4, 2018

Sculpture was once considered the domain of ambitious male artists, a medium as challenging in its physicality as it was limitless in scope. But for several decades, artists from Eva Hesse and Senga Nengudi to Phyllida Barlow and Ursula von Rydingsvard have carved a place for women working in contemporary sculpture. And in 2018, it’s arguably female artists who are creating some of the most interesting, challenging, and ambitious forms—freely taking the body apart, prodding taboos, and embracing ...

Roland Reiss review in Artscene

By David S. Rubin

May 29, 2018

In two concurrent exhibitions (Claremont Museum, Claremont; Diane Rosenstein Gallery, Holly­wood), veteran Roland Reiss exhibits selec­tions from rwo of his best known bodies of work: staged sculptural tableaux housed in Plexiglas boxes, known as "Miniatures" (1977-91), and paintings of flowers that he titles "Florals" (2008-15). The more re­cent "Florals" reveal that the artist, who turned 89 in May, hasn't lost any steam. Not only has he taken the "Florals" in an inspired new direc­tion, but ...

Roland Reiss interview in HYPERALLERGIC by Lita Barrie

"Roland Reiss on His Shape-Shifting Career," May 25, 2018

May 25, 2018

LOS ANGELES — At 89 years old, still lit up with curiosity, Roland Reiss has been an inspiration for SoCal artists who draw from his innovative ways of making and teaching art. Two current exhibitions at Diane Rosenstein Gallery and Claremont Museum of Art (where he was formerly the chair of the art department) examine the legacy of a vanguard artist who has found surprising ways to explore the dynamics of visual perception. As early as the 1960s Reiss abandoned the ...

"Jesse Edwards: Hot Town" and "Matthew Sweesy: Nocturnes" in Artillery Magazine

April 11, 2018

Exhibition reviews in "Gallery Rounds" by Leanna Robinson, April 10, 2018.

Matthew Sweesy’s “Nocturnes” and Jesse Edwards’ “Hot Town,” currently at Diane Rosenstein Gallery, are exercises in nostalgia. The two artists, while working in different mediums and styles, have a strikingly optimistic quality. Whether it’s the pop culture references in Edwards’ paintings, or the childlike explorations in Sweesy’s, the exhibitions have a je ne sais quoi that may remind viewers of simpler times.

Sweesy’s bright, graphic ...

The exhibition will include a selection of “miniatures” dating from the mid-1970s-90s. Among the artist’s best-known works, these boxed, sculptural tableaux are simultaneously familiar, mysterious, and provocative. Also on view will be a selection of Reiss’s floral paintings drawn from a series begun in 2007 that continues to this day. The decision to focus on flowers, a subject generally undervalued in the history of painting, reflects the artist’s ongoing determination to challenge himself, to push limits, to ...

Eleanor Antin reviewed in The White Review

Nov. 3, 2017


For the past five decades, feminist conceptual artist Eleanor Antin has created an anti-essentialist chronicle of herself. Working within a range of media – including photography, film, writing and installation – Antin has explored a stream of selves, influenced by everything from Yiddish theatre to European cinema. As she has commented: ‘I’ve always been addicted to masking, to the slipperiness of genre. I despise purity. It’s so boring. What the hell, it doesn ...

"Theatrical moments" - Hunter Drohojowska-Philp finds three shows that stop action.

Aug. 24, 2017

One of the frustrations of theater, which I love, is the inability to stop time. Actors in costumes and make-up whirl around a stage involving us, hopefully, in their dialog and action. The magic is in the energy and, perhaps, the fact that we can’t freeze frame and rewind. We have to be there.

Here are three shows that offer a closer examination, beginning with Hamilton. Artist Josh Lehrer managed to convince the cast of that hit musical, which ...

A luminary in the constellation of Leimert Park’s richly profound art, music, and literature of the last five decades, Ray has been a beloved “artist’s artist” whose efforts are long overdue for the kind of ...

"5 Fantastic Left Coast Art Galleries at Seattle Art Fair 2017" | Vanguard Seattle by T.s. Flock

Aug. 1, 2017

Seeing art galleries should be part of any leisurely travel experience, and not knowing what you’ll see when you walk in is part of the fun. That said, it’s nice to know the overall style and vision of a gallery before you visit, especially if you have limited time.

Seattle Art Fair offers a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with some left coast galleries, big and small. It will help you get inspired to see some new art ...

L.A. Weekly review: Joe Ray "Complexion Constellation"

"Candy-colored plastics and a living car wash" by Catherine Wagley

July 26, 2017

A group of people in strange costumes mill around a parking lot, and you don’t know what’s going on until a VW bug rolls in and the costumed people, including the man in white foam, begin to rub it down with their bodies. They’re a living car wash, working in slow motion. Footage of this performance, staged by artist Joe Ray, plays in a side gallery at Diane Rosenstein. Across the hall hang black and white photographs ...

Juxtapoz: Shiri Mordechay Interview by Gabe Scott

Shiri Mordechay: An Insomniac's Garden

May 26, 2017

The large-scale paintings of New York Painter Shiri Mordechay are an enveloping feast for the senses, like physically entering a pop-up book pulsating in fevered optics.  Somewhere between reality and a garden of other earthly delights lies the psyche of this visionary, a vessel of mysticism, supernatural environs, memory and clairvoyance.  A certain level of bravery is required for weaving these teeming tapestries of the entranced, and the results can be staggering.  Delving into the depths of myth, trauma and ...

Free Press Houston: Gisela Colon Interview

Visual Vernacular: GISELA COLON by Meghan Hendley-Lopez, May 22 2017

May 26, 2017

 An otherworldly exploration of color, form, light, and surface all vibrantly resonate in the latest exhibition at McClain Gallery. The dimensionality, the layering, and the quiet beauty combined by artist Gisela Colon all speak to her vast understanding of the balance of the masculine and the feminine through her impressive sculptural work. As one moves around the pieces, each tuned to a different vibration in colors and feel, one can see the ...

City Slickers on the Wild Side: The Barnes Foundation Celebrates the "Art of Flânerie" by Edith Newhall

March 30, 2017

Until now, the contemporary art installations at the Barnes Foundation have been pretty much on the safe side. By contrast, however, this first large group exhibition, organized by the Barnes’s new director and president, Thom Collins, is literally a walk on the wild side, with surprises around every corner.

Entering the gallery, visitors are quickly indoctrinated. Movement through the exhibition, titled “Person of the Crowd: The Contemporary Art of Flânerie,” is largely determined by Jean Shin’s quasi-gestural ...

Julian Stanczak, Central Figure of Op Art Movement, Dies at 88

Obituary for ARTNEWS by Alex Greenberger 3/28/17

March 28, 2017

Julian Stanczak, the Op Art painter who, despite physical difficulties, managed to create canvases with vibrant geometries and hypnotic motion, died in his home in Seven Hills, Ohio on March 25. He was 88.

Stanczak was one of the leaders of the short-lived Op Art movement in the 1960s. He was included in the Museum of Modern Art’s 1965 exhibition “The Responsive Eye,” which also featured work by Bridget Riley, Gunter Uecker, and Victor Vasarely. Although today considered groundbreaking ...

photograph Magazine: Stefan Heyne review

Stefan Heyne, "Super Vision: The New German Abstraction" by Catherine Wagley

March 23, 2017

The photographs in Stefan Heyne’s first solo exhibition in the U.S., Super Vision, on view at Diane Rosenstein through April 15, are like a cross between flattened, smoothed-out Rothko paintings and Ed Ruscha’s iconic, acrylic Hollywood (1968), with everything but the sky removed. In other words, Heyne’s color gradations are at once ascetic and ever so slightly Pop. They are also actually photographs of cloudless skies, though they seem more sunset-like than actual sunsets, the color ...

Art Ltd., February/March 2017: Review by Jody Zellen

"Gisela Colon: HYPER-MINIMAL at Diane Rosenstein Gallery"

Feb. 23, 2017

At first glance, Gisela Colon’s wall- and floor-based sculptures seem other-worldly, as if they were pods from another planet where allusive shimmering surfaces were the norm. Although the works share a kinship with the previous generation of California Light and Space artists, who like Colon, were interested in optical and perceptual phenomena, her objects have a lushness and sensuality that is absent in the work of her male counterparts. These non-specific-objects, a term Colon uses to describe her work ...

Aaron Fowler: "17 Emerging Artists to Watch in 2017"

Artsy Editorial, December 13, 2017

Dec. 14, 2016

Among the more important lessons learned by the art world in 2016: An emerging artist’s career isn’t cemented in one night, with one breakout show, or with one collector’s token of approval. Artists who matter long-term have careers that build over time, show upon show, collection upon collection. In looking ahead to 2017, Artsy’s editors consulted a number of data sources, including UBS’s art news ...

Artspace names Aaron Fowler in "10 of the Best New Artists at the Untitled Art Fair," by Andrew M. Goldstein

November 30, 2016

Dec. 8, 2016

When the 28-year-old St. Louis-born artist Aaron Fowler was finishing his MFA at Yale two years ago, about to set off into an uncertain career in the art world, he began a body of work that cast himself in the role of a pilgrim venturing into the American frontier. As befits a Yale grad, these paintings were intensively researched, dipping back into the work of such 19th-century artists as Charles Marion Russell and Frederic Remington for images of settlers and ...

Eleanor Antin in "The Uses of Photography: Art, Politics, and the Reinvention of a Medium" at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego

Saturday, Sep 24, 2016-Monday, Jan 02, 2017 at MCASD La Jolla

Sept. 22, 2016

The Uses of Photography examines a network of artists who were active in San Diego between the late 1960s and early 1980s and whose experiments with photography opened the medium to a profusion of new strategies and subjects. Working within the framework of conceptual art, these artists introduced urgent social issues and themes of everyday life into that seemingly neutral territory, with photographic works that took on hybrid forms, from books and postcards to video and text-and-image installations. If photography ...

Wall Street Journal review: Eleanor Antin in "This is a Portrait if I Say So: Identity in American Art, 1912 to Today" at Bowdoin College Museum of Art

"Works that go beyond appearances to capture a subject's identity, achievements and personality," by Judith Dobrzynski

Sept. 15, 2016

Brunswick Maine,

A rainbow-striped canvas; an exercise bike equipped with a horn, a basket and a sweatshirt; six photographs of a tree against the sky. You may think of portraits as paintings, photographs or sculptures that capture the physical likeness, especially the face, of a person, which is the dictionary definition. Yet at “This Is a Portrait If I Say So: Identity in American Art, 1912 to Today”—which includes those artworks by Ross Bleckner, Eleanor Antin and Alfred Stieglitz ...

On June 1 it was announced that Michael Goodson would resign his position as Director of Exhibitions at the Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art and Design and assume the role of Senior Curator of Exhibitions at the Wexner Center for the Arts. While I expect Mr. Goodson will be greatly missed at CCAD, we can take heart knowing that his considerable talents will remain in Columbus.

The Creators Project review: "Mike Shultis: All American" by Andrew Nunes

"Assemblage Paintings Address the Perils of White Masculinity," by Andrew Nunes (July 12, 2016)

July 12, 2016

Artist Mike Shultis re-evaluates his own culture as a white American male in All American, an ongoing solo exhibition at LA’s Diane Rosenstein Gallery. The exhibition consists of a series of mixed-media paintings that are Rauschenberg-esque in their use of un-painterly materials assembled onto the canvas. 
Car dealership inflatable-tube-men pop out of canvases like cartoon genitalia. Decontextualized Red Bull logos become symbols of overt male aggression. The phrase “Mein bad” and the word “Fear” are repeated like disturbing slogans ...
Contemporary Art Review LA (CARLA): "Eleanor Antin: What time is it?" by Katie Bode

"Review: Eleanor Antin at Diane Rosenstein" (Issue 5)

July 6, 2016

 You are what you buy. As a child of the ‘80s this understanding has been programmed into me since the commercial breaks of Saturday morning cartoons. 20 years before I ever set eyes on an American Girl catalogue, Eleanor Antin was already acutely aware of the abilities of material possessions to tell the story of an individual.
Previously a painter before moving on to assemblage, Antin had already begun her career-long exploration into identity with her first conceptual project, Blood ...
LA Times review: "Roland Reiss: Je T'aime - Recent Paintings + Drawings from the 1960s"

"Tripping the art fantastic," by David C. Pagel (June 6, 2016)

July 6, 2016

At Diane Rosenstein Gallery in Los Angeles, seven new paintings by Roland Reiss square off against nine drawings the L.A. artist made 50 years ago. The pairing is thrilling.

Each body of work reveals elements of the other that would not be evident if the two groups were seen separately. Together, they paint a picture of an artist interested in the sensuality of materials, the slipperiness of images and, above all else, the maximization of visual impact.

“Drawings From ...

"The Stuff of You: Revisiting Eleanor Antin's Groundbreaking Conceptual Portraits at Diane Rosenstein, Los Angeles" (June 18, 2016)

June 20, 2016

It was 1968, and Eleanor Antin had just moved to San Diego, discovered the Sears catalogue, and begun work on her “California Lives” installation. “In New York, you take the subway, go to Macy’s, and buy something,” Antin explained in a 2009 interview: Californians mail-ordered lifestyles, and she wanted to see if she could do it, too.

Antin had her second-ever solo show lined up at New York’s Gain Ground, an alternative space on West 80th Street. For ...

"MoMA Takes On the '60s in a Welcome Shakeup of the Permanent Collection Galleries," by Roberta Smith (April 7, 2016)

April 8, 2016

"...Now change has provocatively shaken up the Modern’s relatively undisturbed sanctum sanctorum: the grand permanent collection galleries, on the fourth and fifth floors, which are typically devoted to the Modern’s unparalleled holdings in the painting-and-sculpture department.

The installation of these galleries has long been the closely guarded aegis of one or two top curators in the department. Now the fourth floor — devoted to works from 1940 to 1980 — has been reinstalled by a collective of 15 curators from ...

Los Angeles Times: "Aaron Fowler: Blessings On Blessings"

"Artist Aaron Fowler's work at Diane Rosenstein: Loaded in more ways than one," by Christopher Knight (Feb 27, 2016)

Feb. 27, 2016

Aaron Fowler’s raucous assemblage paintings are packed with stuff. The term “mixed media” barely encapsulates materials that include shimmering silvery CDs, bits of clothing, folding tables, trash bags, inkjet photos and mud.
The pieces are also packed with complex emotional energy. A single Fowler work can ricochet between deep affection and mortal terror, both leavened by a hefty dose of wry wit. At Diane Rosenstein Gallery, it’s a sight to see.
“Mom Knows” is illustrative. Ten feet tall ...

For nearly five decades, the Studio Museum in Harlem has served as a cultural repository, reflecting the ruptures, shifts and spectrum of experiences for artists of African descent. Its current grouping of shows, culled mostly from the museum’s permanent collection, echoes this landscape, looking backward and forward. The main exhibition, “A Constellation,” includes the work of 26 artists and focuses on themes of abstraction, the figure and the history of the African diaspora. “Black: Color, Material, Concept” continues the ...

For the last year, Ms. Gaignard, who takes self-portraits costumed as various alter egos she imagines, then builds fictional domestic spaces for them, has lived in this nondescript, book-filled and thoroughly carpeted apartment with a professional couple in their late 20s, their chatty lime-green parrot and three cats.

Ms. Gaignard ...
Modern Painters: Sarah Awad

"Reviews in Brief, Los Angeles: Sarah Awad," by Grant Johnson (December 2015)

Dec. 15, 2015

Though devoid of human figures, Awad's "Gate Paintings" recall the very gendered and gentrified spaces of 19th-century works like Goya's Majas on a Balcony, 1800-10, or Manet's The Balcony, 1869. Familiar metal-gate patterns trace through haphazard fields of abstract color. Nominating these decorative elements as worthy sites of inquiry, the paintings play the game of figures/ground and characterize the surface of the canvas as a liminal screen. These might be the peripheries of any private property ...

Nov. 14, 2015

Mark Bradford, Craig Drennen, Chie Fueki, Jason Stopa, Hank Willis Thomas, and Wendy White

The American sports journalist and author, Robert Lipsyte, argued in his 1975 book, SportsWorld, that competitive athletics hold a unique position in our culture. One in which a game can offer an alternative world that can be viewed as sacred, as well as provide refuge. Even after forty years, the debate regarding the role of competitive sports continues within our society. Regardless of one's opinion ...

Art in America: Sarah Awad

"Exhibition Review: Sarah Awad," by Evan Moffitt (November 2015)

Nov. 13, 2015

Sarah Awad's paintings are sluices barely holding back a flood of Fauvist color. An emerald canopy bursts through an indigo grate. Dark leafy smears clash with splashes of fluorescent lime. Warring daubs of crimson and cornflower capture the full flame of a desert sunset. 

Awad's previous work played with odalisques and other motifs from classical painting. For the 12 medium-size paintings in "Gate Paintings," her fourth solo show, she has turned her gaze to ornament. In each painting ...

Nov. 12, 2015

Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015, 6 pm at Basile Auditorium, Eskenazi Hall, University of Indianapolis

Eleanor Antin's trailblazing art stretches back 50 years and more. Sensuous, witty and affecting, her best-known works include The Last Days of Pompeii and 100 Boots

Art 21 describes her films, photographs and performance art as highly theatrical: "Antin draws from the childhood play, an infatuation with stand-up and slapstick comedy, and the tragic humor that is part of her Jewish heritage. 'I always tend ...

MOCA Acquires Eleanor Antin's "100 Boots"

Oct. 31, 2015

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) has acquired Eleanor Antin’s 100 Boots, an original set of fifty-one vintage halftone postcards.

Antin conceived of 100 Boots as a means of circumventing some of the spatial and temporal ...

"Sarah Awad: Gate Paintings," by Andy Brumer (September 2015)

Sept. 17, 2015

Wrought iron gates of varying degrees of design complexity and artistic quality lace Southern California’s residential landscape so ubiquitously that their presence tends to go unnoticed by motorists and pedestrians alike. However, as this exhibition attests, they’ve been anything but overlooked or unconsidered by the Pasadena born and L.A.-based painter Sarah Awad. In the body of work that comprises “Gate Paintings,” the artist certainly soars beyond the blind spots of one’s hometown comfort zone and ...

"Inclusions is an experience in materiality (the juxtapositions between aluminum and wood are key) that also has a narrative arc, or a narrative about an arc. An alderwood Arc big enough to hide a person or two inside of it appears in the show, and also appears in a series of 24 photographs, posed in Montana copper mines..."

David Schafer at Diane Rosenstein

Talking sculptures are a staple of amusement parks, trade fairs, and museums of science, industry, and history, and are sometimes even found in churches. In art, however, they remain exceptional for the simple reason that sculpture’s effect has generally been understood to hinge on arrested potential; thus, a work’s force of expression is perhaps best measured against the pressure of its withholding. To furnish such a structure with a sound track could be ...

“I don’t like work—no man does—but I like what is in the work—the chance to find yourself. Your own reality—for yourself not for others—what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means.”

Genevieve Gaignard in "The Art Minion" by Bianca Collins

"Genevieve Gaignard's A Golden State of Mind at the Cabin" (May 12, 2015)

May 21, 2015

Los Angeles, the highly disputed new epicenter for America’s creative class, can’t seem to satiate its hunger for new spaces to exhibit contemporary art.

Somewhere, nestled between Hollywood and Hancock Park, patron and artist Danny First has built a small, single-space cabin in his backyard. This recently erected structure, formally known as The Cabin, is one Los Angeles’ most unexpected, offbeat exhibition spaces. When I learned of this new appointment-only gallery, currently exhibiting the work of Genevieve Gaignard ...

"A Refreshing Dose of Cynicism-Free Abstraction" (April 20, 2015)

May 20, 2015

Clare Grill is a painter based in Queens. She has shown consistently, if not quietly, over the last few years. An exhibition of her work titled Touch’d Lustre at Zieher Smith & Horton gallery opened in late March with great attendance, but without the noisy hype and fanfare that commonly surround many young painters, particularly in exhibitions set on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. What you won’t find are any paintings made with “novel” materials or pseudo-intellectual gimmicks. You ...

Book Review: Mona Kuhn in photo-eye Blog by Christopher J. Johnson

"Mona Kuhn: Private" (March 14, 2015 )

April 25, 2015

A separate reality; a place of sepia, endlessly erudite, that is, despite itself, a thirst: of the eye, the hand in its search for texture, and the spirit that does not always long for separateness, but wholeness through affinities; all of this is Mona Kuhn’s Private. In one of her previous collections, Evidence, the game seemed to be about sun and light’s kinship with the flesh (raw, palpitating, human flesh), but Private finds the elements of Kuhn’s ...

"Mona Kuhn's Private Pictures" (March 10, 2015)

April 25, 2015

Photographer Mona Kuhn finds herself returning time and again to the desert. Its peculiar, altered reality, in which forms shimmer and are obliterated in glare and haze, and in which one proceeds, seemingly in vain, toward an ever-receding and indistinct horizon, have long fascinated Kuhn.

“There’s a certain magic to that climate,” Kuhn says. “I find myself drawn there more and more. It’s a fascinating ecosystem. For all the seeming emptiness, it’s actually teeming with life if ...

Álvaro Perdices in "300 x 437 x 240" @ Casa Sin Fin, Madrid

On view through March 14, 2015 in Madrid, Spain.

Feb. 4, 2015

"300 x 437 x 240" goes beyond a documentary representation of nature, being easily subtitled as Zarzal, which translates into a wild (black berry) bush or thicket. It is a green mass that speaks of an anarchic and brutal landscape being brought to the comfortable landscape of the city —it is, in other words a certain representation of natural power— which becomes the evocation of natural disobedience and a non regulated gesture. The arms or branches of this bush grow ...

Joshua Aster, Kristin Calabrese, Victoria Fu, Eben Goff, Keaton Macon, Hillary Mushkin, Scott Polack, Eva Struble, and Devon Tsuno

"Borrowed Landscape" is a translation of the term Shakkei in Japanese. Sometimes referred to as ‘borrowed scenery’ but translating more accurately as “captured alive’, this principle of garden design involves incorporating the surrounding landscape through almost diorama like emulation and through carefully considered framing. Views of the surrounding landscape are carefully framed by elements within ...

Jan. 24, 2015

Barretto’s work plays with transforming kitsch accessories and aesthetics in order to recontextualize their material meaning. Delving into women’s tradition and history, Grill is influenced by family relics and photographs, and uses these objects to inform her paintings. Stucky’s interests stem from media and the translation of language and imagery within the presented context. These three artists deal with ...

LA Weekly's 10 Best L.A. Art Experiences of 2014: "Unsparing Quality"

by Catherine Wagley (December 17, 2014)

Dec. 20, 2014

In art, this has been the year of the gap — one version of the art world, a glitzy, market-driven one where youthfulness is a selling point, seems more and more distant from other art worlds.

It seems distant from the real world, too. When Art Basel Miami, that annual fair for which billionaires descend on Florida, opened early this month, the nation was still being rocked by protests over grand jury decisions to let off white cops who killed unarmed ...

Roland Reiss: Retrospective (November 3, 2014)

Nov. 22, 2014

Roland Reiss has a long and influential history in the L.A. and Southern California art scene. Reiss’ early work owed a lot to Abstract Expressionism, but he brought new plastic materials popular during the 60s in L.A. into the work featured in this exhibit. However, the Conceptualist movement of the 70s opened up a new world to Reiss where content mattered. He began to explore human drama in narrative miniature tableaus filled with clues and encased in Plexiglas ...

The legacy of Roland Reiss runs deep in Los Angeles. His fifty-plus-year career, the majority in LA, as both artist and educator have been influential to numerous artists over the past decades, and includes some 29 years as chair of the Claremont Graduate University’s widely respected art department.

By Bill Lasarow and Margarita Nieto (November 2014)

Nov. 5, 2014

(CSU Fullerton, Begovich Gallery, Orange County) In this retrospective Roland Reiss emerges as a key figure in the history of contemporary art in Southern California. While the works in this exhibition are readily identified with mainstream styles and concepts- starting with Abstract Expressionism, Conceptualism and other isms- this is a narrative of an individual who freely explored the changing possibilities of making art without committing to any one. The question is whether we discern an aesthetic core or a rootless ...

Matthew Rolston, the celebrated commercial photographer and director, is known for his glam shots of timeless icons such as Madonna, Angelina Jolie and Michael Jackson.

In his latest project, he’s asking viewers to look at the flip side of beauty, or, as he puts it, “the tragedy of human frailty.”

For nine nights last fall, he photographed inside the catacombs of a Cappucine monastery at the Santa Maria della Pace church in Palermo. There, he photographed the mummified bodies ...

The Armory is pleased to present Karin Apollonia Müller: World’s Edge, an outdoor exhibition that features three photographic works by German artist Karin Apollonia Müller on display at Roadside Attraction, the Armory’s open-air gallery in Northwest Pasadena. 

These three images -- Placerita (2007), Worldlights II (2013), and Overview (1998) -- represent the artist’s ongoing investigation into the seemingly paradoxical intersection between the natural landscape and complex urbanization, where cultivated spaces and urban structures collide with nature.

BOMB Magazine: "Eleanor Antin on influence, feminism, and performance"

Interview by Rachel Mason, September 8, 2014.

Sept. 12, 2014

In past few years there have been a number of survey exhibitions focused on Antin’s tremendous bodies of work. A few months ago, I happened upon a show at Diane Rosenstein Fine Art in Los Angeles, which presented a more intimate view of the artist's work. Entitled Passengers, the exhibition assembled a treasure trove of previously unseen drawings, photographs, and videos from Antin's oeuvre of multi-faceted projects. The many drawings, photographs and videos reveal a lifelong obsession ...

Huffington Post: "Roland Reiss Studio Visit : Spatial and Emotional Depth in Floral Paintings"

By Lita Barrie, August 21, 2014, for Huffington Post

Aug. 25, 2014

"Art is a form of consciousness." - Susan Sontag

Raphael Rubinstein insists that the major difference between an art critic and other critics -- like literary and film critics -- is the stimulating artist-critic dialogue in studio visits that underlies art writing. This summer, I made four visits to Roland Reiss' studio to discuss his new Floral Paintings --which will be on public view in his upcoming retrospective at Begovich Gallery, California State University, Fullerton in November and a large exhibition in Los ...

Architectural Digest review: Photographer Matthew Rolston Turns his Lens to Ventriloquist Dummies

By Mayer Rus, June 11, 2014 in DAILY AD

June 12, 2014

Anyone who suffers from automatonophobia should approach Matthew Rolston’s new exhibition, "Talking Heads," with caution. The photographer’s striking, monumentally scaled portraits of ventriloquist dummies do little to dispel the notion that these creepy-cool conduits possess some sort of human animus. In fact, Rolston’s loving images make a strong case that his subjects do indeed retain a measure of spirit and energy from the entertainers who once brought them to life.

The show, Rolston’s first solo exhibition ...

ArtForum Review: Eleanor Antin, "Multiple Occupancy" @ The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston

By Lori Cole, April 2014, for Artforum

April 30, 2014

From 1972 through 1991, Eleanor Antin invented personas of different races, genders, and professions to destabilize any single identity. Her role-playing was then documented in photographs and videos, which are displayed here alongside various props, notably large-scale flattened paper dolls, the companions with whom Antin enacted her performances. The exhibition, guest-curated by Emily Liebert, begins with perhaps the most discomforting of these personas: Eleanora Antinova, an African American ballerina who Antin claims was once a dancer in Diaghilev’s celebrated ...

The Many Selves of Pioneering Feminist Artist Eleanor Antin (Artsy Editorial)

By Artsy Editorial, April 13, 2014 for

April 17, 2014

Pioneering conceptual and feminist artist Eleanor Antin once said, with obvious relish: “I used to think that I didn’t have a self that was mine...if I don’t have a self of my own, I can borrow other people’s.” While most might feel a lack of self as a void, for Antin it was a source of art. For more than half a century, Antin has been inventing and embodying a wide-ranging cast of alter egos, mash-ups ...

Eleanor Antin on Performance Art, Facebook, and the Possibility That a Contemporary Self Does Not Exist" -- Artspace Interview

Q & A by Noelle Bodick, March 27, 2014 for

April 8, 2014

Feminist pioneer Eleanor Antin has transformed herself into a kaleidoscopic array of guises over her decades-long career, from a deposed 17th-century king in California to an overlooked black ballerina in New York City. Many of these oddball characters are outsiders, as was Antin as an artist interested in narrative and performance during the high tide of 1970s Conceptual art.

Born in the Bronx in 1935, Antin went on to invent a multitude of selves through her virtuosic mimicry. Now these ...
