Brian Bress

Sunset Peacock, 2018

Brian Bress is a Los Angeles based artist and filmmaker who creates absurd, circular narrative films driven by the circumstances of a bizarre cast of ridiculously costumed characters, more often than not played by Bress himself. Though they rely predominantly on homemade props and costumes, Bress’s videos are visually innovative and their inherent silliness and rambling pace only serve to intensify the examination of assumptions about the nature of reality. He is also known for his collage-like portraits that feature costumed actors wearing strange masks that obscure their faces. By disguising the identities of the sitters, Bress heightens the level of uncertainty in the work to humorous levels. Brian Bress (b. 1975) received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and a MFA from University of California, Los Angeles.

Charlie Billingham

A Well Deserved Break

Park House opened it's doors and showcased British painter, Charlie Billingham, and his unique art work that was featured in our rotating art gallery from December 2018 through October 2019. 

Charlie Billingham takes imagery from Regency-era satirical prints and drawings, cropping and distorting sections to create new compositions, devoid of the intended political and social meanings of the original illustrations. A rainbow of powdered wigs, plumed bonnets, sagging britches, and full-figured bottoms dance across his paintings. The canvases, which are sometimes hinged together to make folding screens, are often hung on block printed wall paintings and alongside colorful painted plant pots and houseplants, to create decorative, domestic interiors. Charlie Billingham (b. 1984, London) studied Fine Art and History of Art in Edinburgh (2008) and then Fine Art at the Royal Academy Schools in London (2013).

Danielle Kimzey

Grouping Pairs, 2016

Danielle Kimzey finds an interest in her experience of time—not in a grand, scientific manner, but rather in the quiet, often overlooked moments that marks her daily existence. “My paintings explore the role of patterns and how they can orient us in a space, give hindsight to an experience or recall a memory. I build and reconfigure mundane structures or patterns and break them open until chaos and order intersect, accidents reveal possibilities of color, line and space, and a greater significance unfolds.” Danielle Kimzey (b. 1980) received an MFA in Painting from the University of Iowa and a BFA in Drawing from Southern Methodist University. Lives in Dallas, Texas.

David Korty

Commission, 2018

David Korty is gaining significant critical attention for his lush, luminous mixed media paintings of Los Angeles, city of his home and inspiration. “It is a place that you can live in for 50 years and still never really grasp it in its fullness,” he has said. A twenty-first century flâneur, Korty drives the city’s freeways and avenues, losing himself in its urban fabric, taking snapshots of everyday scenes played out among people, architecture, sidewalks, and streets. He transforms these photographs into expressionistic, semi-abstract paintings, using a stylistic vocabulary all of his own. Korty treats the language as an aesthetic tool. These works were commissioned exclusively for the Park House collection using deconstructed text that directly alludes to Park House’s values. David Korty (b. 1971, San Francisco) received his M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles, and his B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Ed Ruscha

News, Mews, Pews, Brews, Stews & Dues

Quintessentially American, Ed Ruscha is an L.A. based artist whose work, like California itself, is both geographically rooted and a metaphor for an American state of mind. Ruscha is a deft creator of photography, film, painting, drawing, prints and artist books, whose works are simultaneously unexpected and familiar, both ironic and sincere. His most iconic works are by turns poetic and deadpan, incorporating epigrammatic texts with nods to advertising copy, juxtaposed with imagery that is either cinematic and sublime, or wryly deadpan. Whether the subject is his iconic standard gas station or the Hollywood sign, a parking lot or highway, his works are a distillation of American idealism, echoing the expansive Western landscape and optimism unique to postwar America. Ruscha produced News, Mews, Pews, Brew, Stews & Dues during an extended stay in London. To make each print Ruscha and Lyn Haywood would purchase unorthodox materials from grocery stores such as blackcurrants, Bolognese, chocolate syrup, axle grease, baked beans and Branston Pickle and use them as materials to print. A clue to the hidden meaning in the work can be found in his selection of the Beans. Heinz Baked Beans are considered to be quintessentially British, however they were produced in the United States from 1901 until 1928.The unfamiliarity of the words combined with the strange materials highlights Ruscha’s status as an alien observer in the UK but also how our assumptions about a subject, word or material does not always match its reality. Ed Ruscha (b. 1937, Omaha, Nebraska) attended the Chouinard Art Institute (now California Institute of the Arts), Los Angeles, from 1956 to 1960.

Francisco Moreno

Commission, 2018

Francisco Moreno is an abstract painter and performance artist. His approach to abstraction stems from his interest in dazzle camouflage, also known as dazzle painting a system for camouflaging ships during World War I. "Dazzle painting" consisted of complex patterns of geometric shapes in constrating colors, interrupting and intersecting each other. Interestingly, unlike other forms of camouflage the intention of dazzle is not to conceal but to make it difficult to estimate a target's range, speed, and heading. Francisco Moreno (b. 1986, Mexico City) completed his Bachelors in Fine art at the University of Texas in Arlington in 2010 and a Masters in Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2012. Lives in Dallas, Texas.

Gilbert & George

Art for All

Gilbert & George are a fascinating collaborative duo based in East London. With the creed "Art for All," they have engaged and stunned the world with their peculiar performance pieces and vibrant photo-collage work.  

The pair met while studying at St. Martin's School of Art, and have lived together as "living sculptures" ever since. Their performance art piece, The Singing Sculpture, put them on the map in 1969. Since then, the two have functioned as one artist, and are known for large-scale photography, often working in bold colors and black grids. 

Rarely seen apart, and almost always in matching suits, Gilbert & George's relevancy extends beyond the art world. They have inspired comic book series and their work has been a favorite collectable of David Bowie.  In 2008, they were listed among the best dressed men over 50 in The Guardian. This year, they released a collaboration with the brand, Supreme

Their work is featured in The Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Tate Gallery, London, and all around the world.

John Pomara

Divorce Court, 2007

John Pomara incorporates various technological platforms into his work to reflect our unconscious immersion in the digital world. His abstract paintings depict blurs, glitches, and printing imperfections, contradicting our vision of modern technology as cold, rational, and without error. Pomara describes his work as “multiplatform painting interfacing with social media while incorporating apps, photos on my iPhone, glitching software and Photoshop.” Entropy and mechanical failure are prevalent themes within his work. In his endeavors to visually represent these errors he utilizes printers, copy machines and the Internet. Even the medium upon which he works is evocative of his underlying message, the industrial surfaces of the aluminum panels complimenting and enhancing his artistic vision. There are many who would argue that making mistakes is part of the creative process, and Pomara's work in part adheres to this sentiment, oftentimes inspired by the paint drips and spills that landed on the newspaper covering his studio floor. John Pomara (b. 1952) received an MFA and a BFA from East Texas State University. Lives in Dallas, Texas.

Alan Gradient II, 2017

Skees’ artwork combines traditional women’s craft, contemporary DIY culture, and a love of the unexpected and absurd. In her Cozy Portraits, Skees creates custom cozies for her subjects, who are often close friends and family. Like an ill-fitting handmade sweater, the cozies are about the claustrophobia and absurdity of relationships.

Marilyn Minter

Pop, 2008

Since the 1980s Marilyn Minter has turned her exacting style to sensual subjects such as food, the female body, and the pornography industry. A critical backlash against her explicitly sexual work forced Minter to question the origin of the public’s discomfort with the body and sexuality. She was drawn toward ubiquitous, lascivious—yet not lewd— imagery in popular culture, especially in the fashion world. Minter at first set out to reinvigorate the tropes of fashion photography through fine art, but the juxtaposition of in-your-face beauty with down-and-dirty reality ultimately became her focus. She appropriates the vocabulary of fashion and beauty, and then mars the photoshopped flawlessness and color palette of contemporary advertising with sweat, spit, hair, and dirt. Marilyn Minter (b. 1948 Shreveport, Louisiana) received a BA in 1970 from the University of Florida at Gainesville and an MFA in 1972 from Syracuse University, New York. Lives in New York.

Matt Kleberg

Soapbox, 2017

Matt Kleberg’s paintings of abstracted passages in the form of distorted prosceniums and archways are largely built using oil sticks, which he uses to lay down brightly hued stripes and concentric shapes in cacophonous colors. Structurally, the artist’s engaging, decorative images walk a line between architectural volume and painterly flatness, paying tribute to one of his chief influences, Frank Stella. However, while acknowledging his debt to Stella, Kleberg takes exception to one of Stella’s most famous statements what you see is what you see.” In contrast, Kleberg believes we can’t escape the world. It is our visual vocabulary.” Matt Kleberg (b. 1985 Kingsville, Texas) received his BA from the University of Virginia in 2008 and his MFA from the Pratt Institute in 2015. Lives in Brooklyn, New York.

ARTIST

Maxmilian Schubert

Untitled, 2018

Maximilian Schubert’s paintings draw on a millennia-old process similar to lost wax casting as a means to fundamentally alter the nature of the painterly object. Schubert’s strokes necessitate the removal of material rather than its addition as in a conventional painting; the gouges and alterations of the picture plane result in tense overlays of high and low relief that blur distinctions between surface, support and gesture. Cast in archival polyurethane and fiberglass and finished with trompe l’oeil brushwork, these paintings are a kind of fugitive from sculpture that reimagines the painting as object. Maximilian Schubert (b. 1983) studied at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Lives in Brooklyn, New York.
