  Radical Stimulus

On May 4, 2013, Los Angeles Art Association proudly presents Radical Stimulus, an all-media exploration of chemical reaction in contemporary art practice juried by Timothy Yarger, Timothy Yarger Fine Art. Chemical reactions are found in most things; inluding basic life processes, technology, geology, food, and of course culture. Many artists casually employ chemical reactions in their ongoing art-making while others employ chemical reaction in less obvious ways. This exhibit challenges artists to willfully consider their art making process through an intentional understanding of the chemical reactions at play in their work. In addition to Radical Stimulus, artists Tanner Goldbeck, Gray Malin and Vincent Tomczyk will be featured in solo exhibitions.

Tanner Goldbeck's
new exhibit of paintings, CHATTER 4-08-12 investigates conversation and how a room of multiple conversations can easily become chatter. We all have our ways of naturally filtering out noise and focusing in on conversation. Goldbeck presents his visual decision-making in the same intuitive manner. The artist introduces the viewer to each piece midway through a "conversation", encouraging portions of focus while creating an inescapable sense of motion and tension.
A Dallas native, artist Gray Malin hunts the globe for the unusual beauty to capture in his photographs. Malin's new body of work, la Plage, la Piscine features his shooting of the U.S., Brazil and Australia as seen from a door-less helicopter. Viewed from above, a simple beach or pool becomes a blank canvas for Malin -- people and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape and form.
Vincent Tomczyk's new body of work Overlooked is an exhibition of selected chairs constructed entirely from paper and mixed media. Tomczyk's work pays homage to chairs and the role they play in our personal and social existence. The artist also explores tensions between reality and interpretation with these masterfully constructed pieces. Powerfully plaintive, these full-size sculptures eschew nostalgia and functionality for a more careful consideration of the ubiquitous.
