News and Online Community for Culver City - The New Scene
"Points of Entry," the new solo exhibition of large-scale paintings and an audience interactive sculpture by Martin Durazo opens at the Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City this Saturday, January 12th. An artist's reception will take place this Saturday, January 12th, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. As always, the public is welcome.
According to the gallery's release "Martin Durazo's new paintings combine fluorescent colors--yellows, pinks, and reds--with bright metallic silvers, blacks, and iridescent blues and whites, creating a collision of atmospheric layers of abstraction, a palimpsest of social distortion shaped by intoxicating forces of club-lighting, punk and heavy metal music, narcotics, and extreme psycho and sexual behaviors." The second gallery will present an audience-interactive room within a room, a bastardized version of a meditation room-cum-club complete with sound, lighting, reflective surfaces, and seating.
The exhibit will be on view from through February 9. Luis De Jesus Gallery is located at 2685 S La Cienega Blvd.
