George Legrady: Stardust at Edward Cella Art + Architecture

"Despite the blind faith that is often placed in scientific exploration, a telescope is not a truly objective observer. Like the artist's framing of the image, science, too, shapes its inquiry and the result is inevitably inflected by these decisions, whether aesthetic or scientific."

Jun Kaneko: Pure Form and the Indusry of Collaboration

"Jun Kankeo is a magical man who says little. He leads an exemplary focused life that connects him directly into prodigious and profound art making. From the space within this focus and silence Kaneko is probably making the largest hand-built movable ceramic art forms on Earth."

Gary Lang: Hybrid Variations Published in 2008 in conjunction with the exhibition

September 6, 2008

Hybrid Variations marks a significant advancement of Lang’s quest to remove painting from composition and image making and liberate the artist’s activity to elemental mark making and process. This project represents the artist’s most comprehensive vision for a new palette of materials incorporating oil monotype with a progressive stratum of hand applied vinyl acrylic and oil paints on paper. The catalogue features an introductory acknowledgement by gallerist, Edward Cella, and a wonderful essay by Meg Linton, Director of the Ben Maltz Gallery and Public Programs Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.

Published  2008 in soft cover in an edition of 1000. Available for $35.00.

Jeffrey Vallance: BELIEF SYSTEM: 1970s Political Work and Reliquary Chapels, Margo Leavin Gallery
October 31 - December 19, 2007 

"If Los Angeles were Paris, Jeffrey Vallance would surely be delcared a national treasure, yet I'm convinced that any such public recongniation of his peculiar genius would serve only to puncture it."

Kendell Carter: Common Ground at Monique Meloche Gallery
March 14 - April 19, 2008

On a normal day, passers-by can peek into the ground floor windows of Monique Meloche Gallery and find a sparse, modest-sized space with a zealous sampling of contemporary art’s most rapidly emerging names. Yet on this particular afternoon in Chicago, as Kendell Carter attended to last minute touch ups before his opening, the front room of the gallery experienced a spirited transformation. Against a backdrop of prim English wainscoting and crisp white walls broken by black stripes, Carter’s exhibit, entitled Common Ground, delivers multiple paths of social and historical inquiry. Citing Robert Irwin’s ideas as a potent stimulus for his direction as an artist, Carter weaves his personal sensibilities in and around these theories until brilliant colors and contexts explode and bleed together. A re-appropriation of urban material culture is central. Design and decoration merge as cultural yearnings enforce themselves through a skillfully fabricated environment.
