Merging Views

January 11 – January 29, 2014

Reception: Saturday, January 11, 6:30-10:00 PM

Merging Views will be the first exhibition opening at Giant Robot 2 in 2014 and featuring great artists from Los Angeles and beyond: Godeleine de Rosamel, Wayne Johnson, Kwanchai Moriya, Stasia Burrington, Dan McCarthy, and Dan-ah Kim.

Each will be featuring their own hand in art, from 40 clay sculptures by childrens book artist, Godeleine de Rosamel, silk screener hero Dan McCarthy, who captures Cape Cod, life long ago and worlds beyond, to painters which range in styles. Wayne Johnson uses oils in a time tested technique that echoes both contemporary and historical works. Kwanchai Moriya works faster and creates pieces based on sci-fi and the fantastic, yet at times captures his local environment. Stasia Burrington mixes an illustration style often using watercolors, and Dan-ah Kim works with whimsical and contemplative images which will add a layer of complexity.

GR2 Interview: Merging Views – Dan-ah Kim

By ERIC NAKAMURA

“I love finding old books with worn pages to paint on, or ones with faded illustrations and handwritten notes.”

GR2 Interview: Merging Views – Kwanchai Moriya

By ERIC NAKAMURA

“But I can tell you what’s currently on the shelf next to my easel: a 1930′s pressed steel toy plane, a vintage IG-88, a Robert Frost collection or two, and an old Stanley No. 5 jack plane.”

GR2 Interview: Merging Views – Godeleine de Rosamel

By ERIC NAKAMURA

“A big endeavor is to try to reconcile my ceramic work with my work as a children book illustrator, and that I’m finally getting there  (whooohooo!), and to make it happen I had to start to write my own stories.”

GR2 Interview: Merging Views – Stasia Burrington

By ERIC NAKAMURA

It’ll likely always be there, a little, but by simply focusing on the work and on where I want to go, instead of dwelling on where I don’t want to, things have been going in a great direction.
