Craig Kauffman: Prints 1980-1981
Craig Kauffman: Prints 1980-1981
at Frank Lloyd Gallery

Craig Kauffman's initial interest in printmaking emerged while he was attending UCLA. He likely worked with the well-respected John Paul Jones, who established the school's printmaking department.  Entrance to the City (1952) displays Kauffman's early fascination with the work of Paul Klee. Despite the elementary appearance of three untitled lithographs from 1953, Kauffman's stick figures holding hands reference sexual identity in the shape of their heads — a V for the female and an upward arrow for the male.

Often featuring bright underglaze colors contrasting with dark, glossy glazes, the pots range from small, handheld cup- or bowl-like pieces to massive vases, urn-like pots, and large platters. Herman also employs many drawing and painting techniques, including inlay, scraffito, wax resist, oxide wash, and combinations of underglaze and glaze.

Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Peter Alexander: DEEP DIVE, on Thursday, September 9th. On view will be nine paintings made of oil, acrylic, and resin on aluminum exploring the luminous properties of light as seen through water.

The exhibition will be on view through November 6, 2021.

Judy Chicago: A Retrospective
Judy Chicago: A Retrospective
August 28 - January 9 at De Young Museum

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco celebrate pioneering feminist artist Judy Chicago with a retrospective spanning from her early engagement with the Californian Light and Space Movement in the 1960s to her current body of work, a searing investigation of mortality and environmental devastation, begun in 2015. The exhibition includes approximately 130 paintings, prints, drawings, and ceramic sculptures, in addition to ephemera, several films, and a documentary. Together, these works of art chart the boundary-pushing path of the artist named Cohen by birth and Gerowitz by marriage, who, after trying to fit into the patriarchal structure of the Los Angeles art world, decided to change her name and the course of history.

RON COOPER | CARS & BARS

When visiting Ron Cooper’s Taos studio, one is immediately aware of the artist’s other passion – cars – vintage cars that he races. His 1936 “Black Beauty” Ford five window coupe parked directly in front of the studio is the first attraction even before entering the building. But there is a relationship here – much like Cooper’s art, these beautiful cars, including the two that will be on display in Ron Cooper: Cars & Bars, draw the viewer in with their simple, classic forms, finish-fetish surfaces, and custom detailing.

Math Bass in Altered Future
Math Bass in Altered Future
at Tanya Leighton

Tanya Leighton is proud to present Altered Future, a selection of new paintings, drawings and sculptures by artists from the gallery’s programme. Our present reality has taken a counterfactual turn. We are made unavoidably aware that the course of world events can be unexpectedly diverted, and that even apparently singular events are differently experienced by communities and consciousnesses. In Altered Future, intergenerational artistic voices reflect upon fragility, daring to imagine new landscapes of labour, desire, identity and community. The artworks are contextualised and elaborated through short videos and commissioned texts by art historians and critics including Shiva Balaghi, Sonja-Maria Borstner and Sabrina Tarasoff.

for Zwirner Dialogues

A conversation about the art of telling stories with the South African artist Simphiwe Ndzube, who works between Cape Town and Los Angeles and whose first solo US museum exhibition opens this month at the Denver Art Museum, and the renowned writer Zakes Mda, whose novels are widely read throughout South Africa and beyond. The two dissect their magical realist stories of post-apartheid South Africa and their experiences of America on the page and on canvas—and try to locate the source of their own magic.

Canyon - Daisy - Eden

Over the last three decades, Los Angeles-based artist Mary Weatherford has developed a rich and diverse painting practice: from early target paintings in the 1990s based on operatic heroines, to expansive, gestural canvases overlaid with neon glass-tubing that brought attention to Weatherford’s practice in the 2010s. Mary Weatherford: Canyon—Daisy—Eden presents a survey of Weatherford’s career, drawing from several distinct bodies of work made between 1989–2017. As constant experiments with color, scale, and materials, these works reveal the continuity of Weatherford’s preoccupation with memory and experience, both personal and historical.

On Math Bass: Got a Light?
On Math Bass: Got a Light?
by William J. Simmons for Artillery Mag

A strained, stretched, widening, loosened metaphor, one that gives lights and receives them, might be the best way to describe Math Bass’ work. Yet metaphor is an easy interpretational mode that relies too heavily on iconography. Morever, description logo-centrically implies that all that is felt can be written or painted, that you actually can describe what bottoming is like to someone who has yet to do it. A simile might be better. In this moment, it seems more capacious. Bass’ work is like a ride on the Long Island Rail Road, winding through a certain kind of world, in which crushed skulls and young love happen simultaneously and often unnoticed, where aspiration and reality meet, where the Piano Man’s jar is filled up with cock-like bread, where hearts are broken and lose their three-dimensionality, only to unflatten at the sight of beautiful arms at work on a floor.
