This Sam Windett is being shown at Marc Foxx in LA in a group show. I go out of my way to see his work when it is available. This was a most captivating piece.

Chuck Webster Wished I Was A Giant 2015 oil on panel 72" x 108"
I had the chance to go up to LA the other day to see some galleries. My first stop was Zevitas Marcus in Culver City where I had the chance to view Chuck Webster's latest work. I have been following his progress over the past few years and this show did not disappoint.
I have rarely seen such large paintings have such intimacy. They are seductive but not in a cloying way. From near or far they suck you into their other worldliness. Straight forward paint handling with worked and reworked surfaces combine to make an indelible experience. Hats off to this new gallery for bringing such stellar work to the region.

Gary Stephan Untitled 2014 acrylic on canvas 40" x 30"
Gary Stephan is one of the most original and inventive painters working today. Doggedly developing new languages in paint to express his unique idea of what a painting can be. I think of him as the consummate jazz musician that improvises on a familiar tune as he reinvents it in his own sublime manner.
