"Vida, pasión y muerte"
September 9th to October 21st, 2017
Artist Reception: Saturday, September 9th, 2017, 4 pm – 7 pm
In conjunction with the Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA Participating Gallery Program, CB1 Gallery is pleased to present Vida, pasión y muerte by Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia. Known for his Papel tejido (woven paper) works, the exhibition marks a turn toward figuration and drawing. This exhibition introduces Hurtado Segovia’s sculptural work with an emphasis on traditional woodworking techniques, continuing his explorations of pattern and textile influences. Vida, pasión, y muerte is Hurtado Segovia’s fifth solo exhibition at CB1 Gallery. It introduces new sculptural work with an emphasis on traditional woodworking techniques. In addition, Hurtado Segovia continues his use of pattern and textile influences, while exploring new materials such as tar sourced from the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, sand from the Pacific coast, and trees felled in the city. The show’s title turns a fatalist biological fact optimistic by including passion between bookends inviting us to live fully, filled with hope.
"Dispatches from the Front Lines"
October 28th to December 22nd, 2017
Artist Reception: Saturday, October 28th, 2017, 4 pm – 7 pm
CB1 Gallery is pleased to present our third solo exhibition of the work of Los Angeles based artist Merion Estes, Dispatches from the Front Lines. As in previous work, beauty remains a constant in these paintings. The exhibition is the artist’s response to the continuing degradation of our natural world and the corporate greed damaging our waters, air and land, without regard for the safety and well-being of the people who inhabit it. The ideas within Estes’ paintings in Dispatches from the Front Lines come out of the feminist art movement of the early seventies and the subsequent flowering of the pluralism and inclusiveness of that time. An exploration into other cultures, their crafts, architecture and decorated surfaces suggested a way to break out of the confines of formalist, abstract, “pure” modernism and to embrace a more” impure”, humanist, and experimental art expression.
