Trained in Vienna the American artist F. Scott Hess is one of the most technically accomplished artists working with the human form today. His psychologically charged paintings delve into the depths of the human psyche. Hess has an uncanny facility for portraying nuanced poses and gestures that communicate complex emotional states and engaging, often open-ended, narratives. This exhibition is a collaboration between the CSUF Begovich Gallery and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park. Additional show information can be found here

Reining in Ink Art: Revivalism in the Year of the Serpent

randian 燃点
Ink art

Much as the Beijing winter has been very mild this year, overall, the art of the past year has also felt rather milder and more sentimental from previous years. Let us then explore the production and exhibition of this “old” contemporary art in the most vibrant and active part of the contemporary Chinese art world, Beijing....  >> Read More

正如北京今年的冬天不太冷一样,总体而言,这一年的艺术也比往年更加“温情脉脉”,那么就让我主要以当代艺术的创作和展览最为活跃、频繁的北京为例,来考察一下这种“老式的当代艺术”吧.....>> 更多

Notes on 2013—the Beijing Slant

The passing twelve months have seen the greater Chinese scene piqued by scandal, pressure and anti-climax and sprinkled only lightly, it seemed, with really effective art. 2013 felt like a tense and ambivalent year....>> Read More

在过去的12个月里,中国艺术圈充斥着风波、压力与低谷,而似乎少有令人印象深刻的艺术;在这现象的背后是破纪录的拍卖、各种国际展览机会以及艺术家们不变的野心,总的来讲,2013年是紧张而模棱两可的一年...... >> 更多

‘Middle Distance’ Exhibition
Wednesday 19th February 2014 - Friday 21st February, 2014
‘Middle Distance’ brings a high calibre of abstract artists from across the globe together on middle ground - the gallery. The exhibition consists Kirtland Ash, Paul Freud(son of Lucian Freud), David Meekison and Blair Zaye. While each artist works in the abstract realm they all have a different approach to abstraction. Using a combination of  line, colour, form, texture, the brush stroke and the notion of artist’s mark to create compositional pieces which exist with a degree of independence from real life visual references in the world around them. Primarily non-representational indicating a departure from reality. The title of the exhibition eludes perhaps to the abstract finding its place in the ‘Middle Distance’ - the non space between the foreground and background and/or the artists themselves exploring this space between spaces in search of abstraction.
