Tim Hailand: A Sitting

December 2, 2015

Edward Cella presents personal portrait sittings by Tim Hailand in the lush gardens of the Sagmore Hotel in the heart of South Beach in Miami, Florida on December 2, 3, 4, and 5, 2015. 

In 2012, Hailand was inspired by the toile de Jouy wallpaper that covered the walls of his bedroom during his artist residency at Giverny, the legendary home and garden of Claude Monet in Normandy. Following this inspiration, he began printing photographic portraits directly on the toile de Jouy fabric; combining the pastorla monochrome of the cotton fabric with the contemporary immediacy of the performers documented in his photographic work.

Discussion: Lynn Aldrich at Eastside International

November 17, 2015

November 17, 2015, 7pm at Eastside International, Los Angeles, CA. 

Lynn Aldrich will introduce the next discussion on "What's Love Got to do with it: the Artist's Secret Longing to Bless the World". Lynn writes: "In the last decade of his life, Andy Warhol painted a body of large works based on a child's coloring book version of Di Vinci's "Last Supper". I saw them exhibited in New York after his death and was deeply moved - I experienced them as a kind of generous blessing or extravagant gift from the artist to his viewers. It seemed an artist known for flat pop images, shallow manipulations of celebrity, and irony that flirted with cynicism, was communicating something more mysterious and profound." Some of the questions Lynn would like to discuss are: Is spirituality a problem in contemporary art? Can irony rescue sentimentality? What forms does mystery take in a secular age? Does beauty need to be more interesting? Does art itself bring love and grace into the world?

Some writers and artists Lynn suggests: Flannery O'Connor, Chris Burden, Robert Smithson, Allen Ruppersberg, Agnes Pelton, Tim Hawkinson, T.S. Eliot, Paul Virilio, Corita Kent, Blaise Pascal, C.S. Lewis, Andy Warhol, Wolfgang Laib, Julia Kristeva, Vincent Van Gogh, Robert Irwin, Diane Arbus, Simone Weil, Felix Gonzales Torres, Caspar David Friedrich, Jane Dillenberger, Albert Pinkham Ryder, Thomas Cahill, Anne Truitt...

Lynn Aldrich is an artist who loves text and ideas, but makes sculptures, wall constructions, and installations. She is inspired by landscape, qualities of color in nature, and aspects of the natural world and sciences. With strong interests in literature and theology, she has written and lectured concerning art practice. In 2013, Art Center College of Art and Design, Pasadena, mounted a 20 year survey of her work. She is a recent recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. Currently, her solo exhibition More Light Than Heat is on view at Edward Cella Art + Architecture in Culver City. 

Please join us for this interesting evening of discussion with Lynn. The format for the program is open-form. The initiator opens the discussion then the floor opens for discussion. Seating is limited! Light refreshments will be served and are welcome.

Lynn Aldrich: More Light Than Heat
October 24 - December 5, 2015 

"The fabrics gradate from black, at the bottom, through browns, purples, violets, pinks and golds up to pale lemon and white at the top. Through her deft use of materials, Aldrich has, indeed, staged an ascension, elevating the lowbrow genre of velvet painting into a vehicle of greater profundity, while symbolically suggesting the Ascension, Christ's rise from earthly body to heavenly spirit."

Lynn Adlrich: More Light Than Heat
October 24 - December 5, 2015

"Parading their humble pedigree, the artworks of Los Angeles sculptor Lynn Aldrich can seem almost casual at first. Don't be folled. Precisely compsoed out of largely ordinary materials, each of her sculptures is a self-contained statement of discovery and transcendence."

Lynn Aldrich: More Light Than Heat
October 24 - Decmeber 5, 2015

"Think back to the beginning of the original “Light and Space Movement”—it’s not the West Coast Minimal art movement the 1960s and ’70s, Lynn Aldrich would argue, but rather the stained glass windows found in cathedrals across Western Europe. This original play on light is something that inspired painters during the late Middle Ages, and also serves as a driving inspiration behind works in Aldrich’s latest show, “More Light Than Heat,” at Edward Cella Art + Architecture."

Lynn Aldrich: More Light Than Heat 
October 24 - December 5, 2015

"In 'More LightThan Heat,' Lynn Aldrich transforms Duchampian ready made materials bought in hardware, craft and office supply stores into constructions that have transcendent and spiritual qualities. The pieces in this show, all completed this year, represent an evolutionfor the artist, whose sculptural works of the past two decades havetended to possess more whimsical and homespun aspects."

Ruth Pastine: The Inevitability of Truth at Edward Cella Art & Architecture
September 12 - October 17, 2015

"Ruth Pastine’s newest body of work is bold and courageous. The large scale, luminous paintings, engage the viewer in a relationship of perception.  The spatial interplay enhances the meticulously painted, color-saturated canvases; enticing the viewer in a dynamic visual experience."

Tim Hailand, Ground and Image

"...Hailand exploits the unique registration of his portraits onto the particular circumstances that the fabric's pattern, colour and textures prescribe. Composing them as much topographically (thematically) as compositionally, elements of chance and craft collied, reinforcing the open-ended aesthetic pursuit of the aritst." 

Interview: The Washinton Post

Jun Kaneko on his production of the Magic Flute at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washinton D.C.

"I try to keep myself as empty as possible and just listen to the music. Usually it takes me two to three months to get some kind of visual image coming out, just listening. I listen to the opera two to three times a day. Then i start drawing form memory, and keep doing it for a month, and then look at it."
