(Los Angeles May 2017) -Brainworks Gallery has brought together six Los Angeles artists whose work depicts our city with all the vibrancy Angelenos know and love. “Buzz, Pop, Color, Los Angeles” is a showcase of paintings, collage and sculpture that use brilliant color and abstracted form to excite the senses and invites the viewer to notice the beauty and complexity of LA. Opening June 3rd with a reception from 5-8pm, the show runs to June 24th.

Rochelle Botello creates sculpture that uses bright color combinations and patterns in unexpected ways to explore the complex and contradictory nature of everyday life.

Christopher Kuhn creates graphic puzzles of gestural marks that demand the viewer reassess their perception.

Adah Green is a multi-disciplinary native of Los Angeles who addresses themes of race, sex, gender, and classism through graphics, animation, comics, painting, toys, books, fashion, music and of course street art.

Katya Marshall combs the streets of Los Angeles for its trove of signage and printed ephemera, these little paper scraps that are a significant part of LA’s material and cultural landscape inspire her work.

Megan St Clair thinks of her artwork as poetic and scientific gestures that offer an opportunity for her to reflect on her personal narrative of emotional vulnerability.

Stacy Wendt creates chaotic yet structured work with intense colors and clashing modes that are greatly informed by the energy and atmosphere of the Los Angeles landscape.

Brainworks Gallery is LA’s newest artist run gallery on Mid City’s vibrant West Pico Boulevard. In this diverse neighborhood, Brainworks Gallery will be a showcase for emerging artists, conversation and a truly independent perspective on the artistic voice in today’s world. Erin Adams invited lively dialogue between artists and the city about what it means to have a distinct point of view. As an artist run gallery Brainworks Gallery intends to function as a place to meet new voices that are curated but unconstrained by market forces.
