L.A. Artcore invites the public to California artist Bruce Barton’s solo exhibit in Artcore’s Little Tokyo, Downtown L.A. gallery space where the artist will exhibit over fifty digital photographic prints in a series that has been three years in the making. Barton’s work imaginatively questions the relationship between nature and culture by digitally collaging appropriated domestic and wildlife imagery and composing his subjects into deadpan mise-en-scènes. Barton amplifies this artistic intent through stark juxtapositions of subject matter and attention to detail to produce lively and thought-provoking interactions between his subjects, whose very existence is predicated upon folly and chance. Barton’s exacting methodology and painterly technique reveals the way the collage medium has drastically evolved with the use of digital tools such as Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to bring about a new consistency of contemporary image-making.

As part of its International Exchange Program that sends artists from Los Angeles to one of its partnering countries in Asia and Europe, L.A. Artcore invites the public to Artcore’s Brewery Annex space, where its Korean counterparts have curated a group of nine Seoul-based artists to travel to Los Angeles and exhibit their works spanning a range of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, video, installation, sculpture and photography. This exhibition dovetails with a reception on Sunday, February 7th, and includes an opportunity to meet the artists, listen to them talk about their works at 2 p.m. and gain insight into the world of contemporary art in Korea.
