PRESS RELEASE

L.A. Artcore is pleased to present a solo exhibit by Los Angeles sculptor and painter Seda Saar. Saar's sculptural constructions, installations and paintings explore phenomena in nature by combining materials that produce interactions between chromatic, sculptural , material and environmental elements. Saar's Employing of pigmented acrylic panels, mirrored panes and other hard-edged geometric forms are represented as forms for which scale, color and repetition are modulated to varying effect. Saar's emphasis of light in tandem with a form and/or surface's intrinsic qualities such as its translucency, opacity, color or refractibility engage the viewer's perception and establish a dialogue of an artwork as the product of an artist's subject, materials and method. Saar's development of this work plays with both physical, architectural, environmental and illusionistic space whose optical qualities are completed by the quality of light in their specific environments.

Saar's paintings similarly convey immersive environments of color and light as a locale of the viewer's perception. Saar originally began this series as a photographic investigation of color and light by shooting studio mock-ups out of which Saar extended this process to paintings and lastly to sculpture. The histories of Modernist design, Op-Art, Futurism, the Light and Space Movement and Minimalism have been slyly integrated in Saar's process.

PRESS RELEASE

LA Artcore presents an exciting painting show that features two easel artists dedicated to experimentally sourced variations in their work.

Alain G. Rogier has built impressive canvas mileage out of gestural marks, at once provisional and expressionistic. The careful filling of the canvas surface shows a concern for overall form and balance, a kind of self restrain against which the artist applies what he calls in one series ‘graffiti of the mind’. Working the recognizable into a kind of frenetic caricature, the artist works the edge of recognition producing a feeling of the chaos of urban interactions, his presence made known in the decision-making behind his marks.

Yayoi Ailene Shibata is best described as a traveling Voyageur, her itinerary traversing the periods and territories of pure abstraction. From watery images filled with the suggestion of natural forces, the hard lines tempered with texture or theory, her mind grabs on to each canvas and seeks to present a complete microcosm of her world, as a painter and an artist in the overall conversation behind her chosen medium.

Artist Reception:

Sunday June 7th, 2015, 1– 3 p.m.
Conversation With The Artists at 2 p.m.
