…A celebratory exhibition of LA’s most discoverable artists.

Art, Events

Mash Gallery presents I OF LA, a celebratory exhibition of LA’s most
discoverable artists. Los Angeles, CA, June 30, 2020.

Mash Gallery celebrates the DTLA Arts District community with its expansive exhibition, I OF LA, opening August 29, 2020. I OF LA features 20 of the area’s best discoverable artists—selected from almost 200 submissions and single-handedly curated by MASH Gallery founder and artist, Haleh Mashian. This breathtaking summer show provides a much-needed and safe opportunity to bring the community together to find solace through art.

“Mash Gallery added every precaution to make this an exciting indoor/outdoor event while being totally safe. Come inside or stay outside, for a unique art experience,” encourages MASH.

I OF LA encompasses the space between vision and communication, between artist and audience. “I aim for symbolic interactions to create a contrasting visual syntax for I OF LA. The works possess an energetic rawness and were not designed to be exhibited together. My goal is to highlight this kinetic visual energy against an orderly and refined structure to enhance the high degree of visual complexity around us,” says Haleh.
Haleh explains that the term “emerging artist” can be misleading. So-called emerging artists are sometimes freer and less restrained to experiment with ideas, concepts and materials that don’t immediately resonate with each other—but the unexpected results can generate an energy, a fluidity, that lay previously undiscovered. “I wanted to give these voices a presence in an established gallery,” adds Haleh.

Showcased artists include vivid abstractionist Moises Ortiz, whose arresting works evince an energetic use of color and composition; Terri Lloyd, whose faceless figures grace the stark suburban pastel backgrounds of her childhood; abstract photographer of ordinary household items, Laura Hull; urban street artist and portraitist, Jacob Root; modern-day Lichenstein
descendant, Dan Litzinger, whose pop-comic style mixes mid-century aesthetics with current pop culture imagery; the minimalist installation art of Alex Chiu among many others.

To meet the safety needs of social distancing, the MASH Gallery venue is uniquely suited for today’s live gatherings that require more space and open air. Haleh Mashian has created a true indoor-outdoor space made possible by large, glass garage doors that open directly onto street-level and a high volumetric ceiling fan with two exhaust fans that blow fresh air into the gallery. Helpful floor markings will adhere to six-feet social distancing guidelines, so that at any given time, the gallery is never at over-capacity.

Artwork will hang on outside walls as well as displayed on mobile walls on the sidewalk outside MASH. This summer opening will feature aDJ or live music and a wine bar facing the street. Safety is MASH’s first priority as the gallery knows that inspiring and continuing community is just as important during this time of recovery.

MASH Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in the Los Angeles Arts District conceived to accommodate independent curators in order to manifest their vision. The brainchild of artist Haleh Mashian, the venue is designed to create intimate conversations between those curators, artists, and the Los Angeles art audience. MASH places its commercial programming into the hands of an ever-changing rotation of curated shows. While scheduling and presenting art installations is an expected feature for museums, it is new territory for a commercial art space. Instead of representing individual artists, MASH Gallery showcases a robust schedule
of compelling contemporary art shows, bringing the art gallery to life like never before.

Clean up, Clear out

Art, art collecting, Events
Time to clean up and clear out!

Over the past few years, I’ve gotten fairly prolific between Pink Buddha memes, books, advice columns, video making and my visual arts practice. You have cheered me on through the process of navigating between traditional media and digital media, between my right hand and my other hand, my failures and my wins. We’ve had an adventure, haven’t we?

Along the way something I made may have resonated with you. You made a note of it, thinking “Gosh, I really want that!” Only the timing wasn’t right and then, time got away from both of us. 

I get it. 

And now the amount of work sitting in my studio has gotten away from me. So much so, I can no longer get in to what was once my actual workspace. It’s embarrassing. 

To save face, I’m hosting a studio clean up and clear out event. 
It runs privately thru the end of September. (9/30/19)

Between 70 and 80% off.
Operative word: affordable. 

Some things I’m willing to ship.
Framed works are not eligible for shipping. 
Come get ‘em or make your own arrangements for shipping. 

Small and large digitals.
Abstract and figurative. (Yes, abstract.)
Other hand paintings. 

You in?

Opening Reception Saturday, September 7th,  5 p.m. – 9 p.m.

“[The self] is like a cart, which is not other than its parts, not non-other, and does not possess them. It is not within its parts, and its parts are not within it. It is not the mere collection, and it is not the shape.”  -Chandrakirti, “Guide to the Middle Way”

Gestalt Projects invites you to “The Body in Parts”, a group exhibition examining the beautiful vagaries and miraculous unity that can result from our shared physical structure. Based on the Buddhist view of the individual as a bundle of smaller parts forming a larger non-person centered self, artists from around the United States will present art in a variety of mediums using their unique creations of various body parts to form various assemblages of togetherness. Working with representations of our inherently physical limitations, this show hopes to transport the viewer to the metaphysical possibilities of human experience.

The Diva, 2019, 18 x 24, acrylic on paper

In April, several of the Left-Hand works will be exhibited in a show called Figments at ShockBoxx Gallery in Hermosa Beach.

Figments is a group art show where artists reflect on the relationship with one’s self and topics of mental health, including disorders like anxiety disorder, depression and body dysmorphia. We invite artists to explore both the causation and effects of mental health issues and instability through visual art and writing.

With figments, we aim to destigmatize mental health issues, as well as promote personal growth, a healthy relationship with one’s self, and a positive, supportive community.
