Vesod and Morten Andersen are two painters who refuse to let time stand still. While the former works with figures that seem to move like slowed-down frames in an animation (Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase comes to mind), the latter fractures abstract forms that seem to shape-shift before our eyes. Currently on view at LA’s C.A.V.E. Gallery, Vesod and Morten Andersen’s two-person show “Remix Every Second” is an exploration of the ways the two artists can distort viewers’ experiences and even perhaps make them reflect on their perceptions of reality. Take a look at some opening night photos from “Remix Every Second” and see the show before it closes on September 6. More on Hi-Fructose

Jackalope on linen, Macsorro.

This is featured in the CAVE Gallery 3rd anniversary show (Center for Audio and Visual Expression, Venice CA) http://cavegallery.net/ 

Find more on Macsorro at http://www.myspace.com/Macsorro or you can try… http://macsorro.blogspot.com/ 

Of this particular work, Macsorro (aka Jorge Macswiney) says… “The Jackalope is a mythical animal of North American folklore described as a jackrabbit with antelope horns or deer antlers and often hind legs. It is possible that the tales of jackalopes were inspired by sightings of rabbits infected with the Shope papilloma virus, which causes the growth of horn- and antler-like tumors in various places on the rabbit’s head and body.

However, the concept of an animal hybrid occurs in many cultures, for example as the griffin and the chimera."

Young Chun’s “Serenade.”

Up currently at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Los Angeles, California is artist Young Chun’s solo show, “Serenade.”  Chun’s artwork is a culmination of music, memories and the people who have shaped those influences in metaphorical form.  Chun seems to relate to the idea that these portraits are emanations of how he’s currently feeling thanks to all that has come before.  "Serenade“ will be on display until the end of November.

Chapeau for C.A.V.E and Ralph Ziman’s Ghosts at Photo L.A.

I love galleries, which show courage, because I know how hard and risky that is under commercial terms. And focusing on one artist while making on top also a political statement, needs even more courage. C.A.V.E. gallery from Venice Beach deserves your visit at Photo LA exactly for that. Intriguing presentation, dense, moving and relevant and contemporary.

What else did we like…well the fact that…
