PRESS RELEASE

LA Artcore is pleased to present this exhibit by a group of artists who met in the art department of Seoul's Hong-Ik University between 1968 and 1975. In a serendipitous turn, the artists in this exhibit independently immigrated to different parts of the U.S. at roughly the same time during the mid -1980's. All of them resumed their art practices, aesthetically diverging from one another, and yet retaining close contact. Each artist's distinct craft, technique and process evinces reflectively, two worlds—past and present—that are straddled between the evolving identity of its maker. Using mixed media, oil painting and ceramics, the artists in this exhibit consistently seek out the present as a means of transforming their own questions about humanity. 

This exhibit, organized between LA Artcore and Phil Kho greatly extends the vision of LA Artcore's mission statement, of exposing the public to contemporary art from arts communities around the world through its international exchange program, and through its exhibition schedule featuring over twenty-four monthly exhibitions of art per year.

PRESS RELEASE

The Twigs are a collective of six senior citizen artists with over 300 years of experience between them, they have been making and showing art since 1941. 

The Twigs work in diverse media: paint, ceramics, digital art, photography, and screen sculpture. They share an appreciation for the aesthetics and history of art, while challenging the boundaries of contemporary art with their own visions. Long-time friends as well as art cohorts, they meet monthly to discuss their work, and often climb into the "Twigmobile," an old VW Bus, to make gallery and museum visits throughout the greater Los Angeles area.

Allen Bollinger paints large brightly colored abstractions.with varied textures and movement. Winston Marshall's paintings are about discovering how space, mass, time and movement can alter our perceptions by standing in front of a two-dimensional surface. Frank Matranga, a master potter, works in large and small clay objects and sculptures. Computers and high quality printers have provided Michael Rich with alternative means of expressing himself through digital art. Mariann Scolinos sculpts three-dimensional wall hangings from mesh screen and aluminum bars, incorporating the wall as the negative space. Bob Witte considers himself to be an experimental photographer producing montages and collages in both 2 and 3 dimensional formats.
