Cultural Illusions: Katie Crown, Ernie Marjoram, Juan Rosenfeldt at TAG Gallery

TAG Gallery, 2525 Michigan Avenue, D-3, (Bergamot Station) in Santa Monica opens a new show featuring artists Katie Crown, Ernie Marjoram and Juan Rosenfeldt.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 3, 2012, 5:00-8:00pm
Artist Panel: Saturday, March 10, 2012, 3:00pm

Figuratively Speaking, Katie Crown
Mixing humor and noir, Katie Crown’s figurative paintings darken the sunny, saturated sea-sides of Southern California. Both her oil paintings and ceramic sculptures are characterized by a play on geometric patterns and the pathos of the human condition. Her pieces might seem the California love child of Mondrian and Alice Neel, capturing an isolated, voyeuristic beach culture, culminating in a Dis-United States of America.

Guilty Pleasures, Ernie Marjoram
In Ernie Marjoram’s latest show, Guilty Pleasures the Los Angeles based oil painter monumentalizes our soothing psychological yet “not-so-healthy” dishes, and examines the moment just before we bite. We zoom in on the foods we take for granted, and discover their personas, temperaments and tastes through the thick impastos of pasta, pot roasts, and yes, even cheeseburgers. We enter the landscape of our own anxieties, taking stock of the thick, fun and exuberant dishes that give us comfort in our times of emotional malaise.

Elements of Change, Juan Rosenfeldt
As if dioramas from the story of Coelho’s Alchemist, the works of Juan Rosenfeldt transform found objects of earthly time into contained experiences of eternal aesthetic contemplation. In the Elements of Change, the Venezuelan-born Rosenfeldt creates a visual correlation to Borges’ Magical Realism suffused with the surrealism of Meret Oppenheim, and Joseph Cornell. In examining the delicate balances of computer parts, butterflies, stamps and string, we discover the fragile nature of our existence and the sheer wonder of its fruition.
