Hany Rashed

HANY RASHED

A self-taught artist, Hany Rashed was born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1970. From 1994 to 2004, he trained at the atelier of the prominent Egyptian artist Mohamed Abla. Experimenting with a wide range of techniques, Rashed continuously reinvents himself and his work. His predilection for the use of media images pushes the audience to recognize the damage caused by excessive exposure to Western media and highlights the depersonalization of the individual. Since the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, he documented changes in visual culture on the popular page Contemporary Art. He has exhibited 12 shows at Cairo’s Mashrabia Gallery, most recently “The Last Farewell.”

Ignacio Perez Meruane

IGNACIO PEREZ MERUANE

Los Angeles Contemporary Archive and Colpa Press are pleased to present a curving wave that never breaks, a group of works by Ignacio Perez Meruane with an accompanying publication and artist’s edition. Both the exhibition and publication serve as a continuation of Perez Meruane's 2015 project circuitos at Galería Tajamar in Santiago, Chile, exploring the history of the country’s copper mining industry. The project takes as its point of departure connections between Chuquicamata and the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Chuquicamata, the world's largest open pit copper mine, was opened in northern Chile by the Guggenheim family in 1915. The works presented address the global circulation of copper as a commodity, extracted from one location and transported to another, alongside copper's inherent capacity to conduct the flow of electricity and therefore transmit information. Frank Lloyd Wright's theory of organic architecture, in which a building and its elements are integrated with their environment, is contrasted in these works with Solomon Guggenheim's willful exploitation of that which comes from the earth - copper.

FEATURED ARTIST

Alex Katz

ALEX KATZ

Alex Katz is a New York based painter and printmaker, specializing in boldly simplified portraits and landscapes. Though influenced by American Scene artists as well as diverse elements of European and American modernism, he has avoided affiliation with any group or movement. To a great degree, Katz's distinction lies in the fascinating dialogue he developed between realism and more abstract tendencies in modernism. His heroically scaled landscapes and figural compositions recall Monet's late Water Lilies, Abstract Expressionist compositions, and roadside billboards. Rendered in bold and flat colors with sparing detail, his canvases create a double affirmation of the motif and the painted surface. His technique owes much to the crisp manner of commercial art and illustration, and this feature, along with his uncomplicated display of contemporary subjects, dovetails into Pop art. Much in the way Andy Warhol turned a Campbell's soup can into an instantly recognizable symbol, Katz transformed his circle of family and friends into visually arresting icons. His repeated return to subjects for which he has a fondness, such as his wife, pool-side bathers, and the quiet Maine landscape, encourages reception of his work as a blithesome celebration of the everyday in middle-class America.
