Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present the Los Angeles solo debut of Wayne Martin Belger's Pin Hole Cameras, and a solo exhibition of the mixed media paintings of Jonathan Martin. The gallery will also present three new Project Window installations by Jon Tarry, Shannon Lambert, and Richard Ankrom. Ankrom's installation is in association with the Museum of Neon Art.
Wayne Martin Belger creates pin hole cameras from specially chosen found materials. These cameras are sculptures that make a statement about the materials of which they are constructed, yet function perfectly to produce photographs. Some of his cameras are created from a human skull, debris from the World Trade Center, and HIV infected blood.
Jonathan Martin uses organic materials such as flower essences, rust, and other pigment-like materials to create fragile, minimalist compositions on muslin and felt. His works evoke a sensibility of loss and the passage of time. They change considerably in the first few years after their creation, then become stable after 2 or 3 years.
In the Project Windows, Jon Tarry explores non-functioning signs in a piece called "Walk Through LA." Shannon Lambert's sculptures highlight the natural beauty of discarded materials. Richard Ankrom debuts a highly frenetic neon installation contrasting additive and subtractive color.
