Art Run to L.A. part two / Bergamot Station: Shoshana Wayne Gallery, Rosamund Felsen Gallery, Richard Heller Gallery, Samuel Freeman

Zadok Ben David: "Blackfield" / Shoshana Wayne Gallery / (April 4 - May 16, 2009)
yes, I know, it's closed already, I am late to post this!

Surprising/beautiful/poetic/soothing/ephemeral/delicate installation by Zadok Ben David at Shoshana Wayne. Thousands of small drawings of plants (laser cut metal pieces) are displayed vertically on a surface sifted with light colored fine sand.

We saw people coming and staying. It was a place where one could meditate. The field is not so black once one walks to the end of the room and looks back. Then the plants come alive and the rainbow like colors make the whole field vibrate.

Is "Blackfield" a dead forest?

The view from the side of the installation...

and the view when one arrives on the other side...

Is "Blackfield" an explosion of life in the middle of the desert?

Jean Lowe / Rosamund Felsen Gallery / (April 18, May 16, 2009)
It was very interesting to see the collages of photographs that Jean Lowe makes prior to paint each piece. It explains how she constructs the space between the museum views and the big box retailer photos she takes.
The books she presented on the shelves (that she also made) are darkly hilarious and it was a pleasure to take the time to discover each of them.
I love the energy which emanates from her work.
