But first, see some art

But first, see some art

Had a delightful daytime fieldtrip to see three shows of interest with my friend Aaron, who kindly offered to drive. (I have not driven my car once this year. I'm starting to get superstitious about it. Like: I CANNOT drive my car, EVER AGAIN.)

Below, a few images from three very satisfying exhibitions. First up, Kishio Suga at Blum and Poe. I especially loved the minimalist collage—the act of simply tearing a corner and placing it elsewhere on the surface yields beautiful results. All of the works have a magical combination of force and delicacy.

Next up was a career spanning retrospective of sculpture, Beverly Pepper: Selected works 1968-2015 at Kayne Griffin Corcoran. The gallery is almost too gorgeous but Pepper's works are no shrinking violets, rather radiate power and elegance. Really wonderful work. 

The last stop, pièce de résistance, What I Loved: Selected Works from the '90s at Regen Projects. It's a museum caliber exhibition from a personal favorite moment in recent art history. I'll be coming back for more (long) looks at this show. 

Another wonderful day of arting in Los Angeles.
