Press Release by Pranay Reddy:

LOS ANGELES, CA - L.A. Artcore is pleased to present this special two-week showing of Thai artists.

In what are a continuation of Artcore's successful and longstanding cultural exchanges with Thailand artists, Artcore once again commends Thai National Artist Dr. Kamol Tassananchalee for his impassioned involvement in exposing artists all over the world to Thai art and culture as well as promoting Thai artists and art abroad.

The eight artists in the show who among them are Dr. Kamol Tassananchalee and Thawan Duchanee demonstrate from their distinct approaches, a culturally-interconnected world where boundaries between Eastern and Western culture become increasingly plural and continue to produce new and vital forms. Upon arriving in the United States, the artists will unpack works spanning across the mediums of painting, sculpture, mixed and digital media. International Exchange Show With Thailand presents an especially engaging opportunity to take in the contemporary developments and undercurrents that are shaping the country.

LA Artcore Brewery Annex (Lincoln Heights)

APRIL 3 to 27, 2014


Opening Reception: Sunday Apr. 6th, 2014 1-3PM
Conversation with the Artist: 2PM

Press Release by Robert Seitz

LOS ANGELES, CA - LA Artcore offers a show of three women who portray significant individuality through their seasoned art practices.  This show is an opportunity to experience the way painters, differing in approach yet in full possession of the confidence that comes from mature practices, can create a complimentary space within a gallery.  An exhibit like this reveals one of the more subtle lessons of art, the naturally occurring harmony between displays of skill.

Ann Gooding works from her desert studio in La Quinta, where she soaks up the intensity of the light and translates her experience of nature into pure abstraction.  Her works are stimulating and ever evolving from exhibit to exhibit, revealing both the light touch of consideration, with careful layers of color, and an inclination towards craftsmanship, carving revealing marks into surfaces, and other imprints of movement. http://anngooding.com/

Ann Phong creates deep, turbulent paintings that rise above the canvas plane like crashing waves.  Her work involves a great deal of modeling, and a profound use of colors that distinguish and unify like light playing on the surface of the ocean.  An active leader in the Vietnamese community here in L.A., and a seasoned art educator, Phong lives the creative life with an intensity and dedication few artists can claim to match. http://www.annphongart.com/

Kaoru Mansour is in possession of a talent that knows little limitation, but reveals its sophistication and experience through what she puts into her work.  Combining music and vision, she is active in the jazz world and prolific painter.  Producing work that contains balance and rhythm, she creates curious chimeras that harmonize recognizable elements from the natural world with details and ornaments of abstraction.  Like nature, delicate balance within her composition result in vibrant, eye-catching effects. http://www.kaorumansour.com/






BRIAN ADAMS

APRIL 18 - 30, 2014



Union Center for the Arts
Opening Reception: April 19th, 2014 3-5PM
Conversation with the Artists: 4PM

Press Release by Pranay Reddy:

On the occasion of the publication of Brian Adams' book project entitled I AM ALASKAN, L.A. Artcore is pleased to present this special, two-week exhibit of Adam's photography in which he uncovers his native state as a site of vital sociological and environmental confluence and diversity among its inhabitants. Adams will present a selection of work that traces the numerous themes and threads that unite his body of work.

All photographs exhibited have been shot with a medium-format Hasslebad camera that Adams returns to while away from projects as a freelance commercial photographer, a realm that necessitates digital photography and media. Adams describes a depth and richness found within film's physical properties that goes otherwise missing while working in digital media. The artist is interested in capturing both naturalism in his subjects while using outdoor lighting techniques to further accentuate his subjects' environs. In Adams' series of works entitled Disappearing Villages, the artist casts Alaska's environs as
both an outpost that is off the beaten path of American culture as well as a stomping ground of
happenstance cross-cultural interaction to its inhabitants.  Having begun his interest in photography in high school by shooting his fellow skate and snowboarders, Adams revisits youth culture in his series SKATE, turning the lens dually on Alaska's contemporary skateboarders as well as the delicate bonds formed during one's youth. The urban environments and topographies that his subjects are enmeshed with are a persistent theme that underlies the artist's work as well as an ever-present humanity that finds the lives of his subjects poignantly entangled and interwoven towards different aspects of  Alaskan, American and human life.

Adams has exhibited extensively in the United States. He was recently featured in “Re/Marks”, a 2013 exhibition at the Anchorage Museum of History and Art. Adams has photographed for clients that included Getty Images, The Alaska Humane Society and State Farm Insurance. His work has been widely published in periodicals including The New York Times Magazine, GOOD, Newsweek Magazine and The Wall Street Journal Magazine.
