Anne Seidman

Anne Seidman  Untitled (GB15) 2015   pencil on rag paper   35.75" x 45"

Yesterday I posted a piece by Dennis Koch who uses colored pencil to make intense geometric tondos. Today I am posting Anne Seidman who also uses colored pencil to make multicolored geometric tropes on paper. She is showing at George Billis across the street from Luis De Jesus in Culver City. Is there something in the air right now? At any rate they are exceptional works that include painting as well. Worth the trip to L.A.

Dennis Koch

Dennis Koch  Singular Versor ( Derivations Within A Sphere)  2014  colored pencil on paper
64" x 48"

Koch's exquisitely drawn works on paper are currently being exhibited at Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver city. The drawings reference a universe or cosmology that has inspired Koch over time. I don't know about the inspiration but the quality of the work speaks for itself.

Andrew Baron

                     Andrew Baron  Hammurabi's Code  2014  oil on canvas  72" x 54"
                    I enjoy the way Baron uses paint. There is a lusciousness to the surface
                  as it intertwines with the underpainting he produces through layers of
                  thoughtful applications. The graphic quality of the imagery alludes to some
                  tangible element but we are never quite sure what it is. His titles give clues
                  but we are left to reflect on the work through our own filters.

Jonathan Apgar

         Jonathan Apgar  Untitled  2014  oil on canvas  96" x 84"

          I have been following Apgars work for a couple of years now. I saw his work at 
         George Lawson's space in Culver City before he moved back to the Bay Area.
         I am continually impressed with the paintings development and his commitment to 
         to his craft. He has Bonnard's palette blended with an intellectual curiosity that makes  
         viewing them a feast for the eyes and mind.

Gosia Machon

Gosia Machon  Weiches Moor  2014  ink on paper  19.68" x 27.5"

Machon is an artist living in Germany. Living in a country so rich with figurative antecedents, it is easy to see how she uses and subverts iconography to suit her individual style. I really enjoy her insouciant line and the elegance of economy in her compositions.

Clinton King

              Clinton King  Done Before Finished  2014  oil on canvas  24" x 18" 
                King is another grad from SAIC. He lives and works in Brooklyn now, as it 
               seems so many young painters do. This painting separates itself from some of 
               others King has done in that it seems more complicated and hard to define. I 
               like the off kilter color combination and the ambiguity of the space that is set up 
               by the deliberateness of the drawing and blended paint handling.
