I have been selected for an exhibition of text-based art, opening in LA, Aug 2012. More details:
“Text : Message” (The Alchemy of text-based Art) is a group exhibition of artists, working in a variety of mediums and genres, who incorporate, infuse or solely utilize text in their art practice. Through their employment of language and letterform as concept and design, these artists cultivate an inherently transformative partnership of imagery and text, posing, among many other questions – “does art enhance the power of text or does the presence of text enhance the power of art or are they forever equals in this visual-conceptual dialog.”
This unique art exhibition held at the Bleicher Gallery La Brea in Los Angeles will display a compelling array of contemporary text based works encompassing a wide variety of themes and concepts. The works on view will traverse diverse styles and sensibilities, delivered with skill, intelligence, wit and innovation through a myriad of themes ranging from public to personal and media including: illustration-pyrography (drawing with fire/heat), kinetic sculpture, collage, interactive installation, neon, l.e.d., video, sculpture, assemblage, painting, and photography.
ARTISTS: STEPHEN ANDERSON, NICOLA ANTHONY, TM GRATKOWSKI, ALEXANDRA GRANT, JIM JENKINS,
KIM KOGA, JOELLA MARCH, MARY COREY MARCH, DARREN SARAVIS, JOY SHANNON, LACEY TURRELL,

Bleicher Gallery La Brea specializes in works by artists that have crossed traditionally contentious art ideologies. Our artists are strong in innovation while remaining emotive/conceptually engaging and cross academic vs outsider art world divides.

We are pleased to share company with some of Los Angeles’ most respected and established galleries and museums including Jack Rutberg Fine Art, LACMA, ACE, and Stephen Cohen Gallery.
