Earth-Like Planet Review in OC Weekly

Sequoia

A lot of Earth-themed art shows seem to be popping up around Orange, LA and Riverside counties lately. There was "Spaceship Earth" and "The Weight and the Magnitude" up in the Pomona Arts Colony/Claremont Village and Sant Khalsa's "River Run" in Riverside, and at the end of the month, "Speak for the Trees" opens at Irvine's House of Balsamic. Before that show, there's the Irvine Fine Arts Center's pro-green-themed exhibit, "Earth-Like Planet," opening this weekend...

"Andre Yi's hyper-spiritual acrylics perfectly embody the future/science/nature ideal with their twisty, gnarly tree trunks and stumps surrounded by green Kubrickian monoliths—the generators of universal life,..."

Earth-Like Planet

Earth Like Planet

The Irvine Fine Arts Center is pleased to present Earth-Like Planet. This exhibition, curated by Matt May, explores the dominion where art and science intersect. In this territory, somewhere between real and imaginary, artists take on the role of forecasting a future of what may be and what is yet to come.

The term "earth-like planet" references the rapid advancement of science and technology, and in particular, that of deep space exploration. Inspired by such possibilities, this mixed media exhibition examines varying themes of wonderment, exploration, conservation and a resulting dose of sci-fi.

My House is Your House

curated by Whitney Carter and Molly Larkey, April 29 - May 29, 2011
Opening reception: Friday, April 29, 7-10 pm

Artists: Sara Clendening & Eric Wesley, Samantha Fields & Andre Yi, Samara Golden & John Seal, Kate Harding & Steven Bankhead, Michael Henry Hayden & Anthony Lepore, Daniel Ingroff & Paul Pescador & David Gilbert, Kristi Lippire & Matt Wardell, Yunhee Min & Patrick Meagher, Tracy Nakayama & Jeremy Yoder, Amy Sarkisian &Tyler Vlahovich

Statler Waldorf Gallery is pleased to present “My House is Your House." The exhibition examines couples who work together, either in a direct capacity, or by sharing an intimate space outside of their respective studio practice(s). A partner’s role as confidant and critic is essential, as they are often privy to the most intimate evolutions that each other’s work endures over time. How do the conversations that happen within a studio and a home, with a partner whose opinion is a trusted source, affect one’s practice? “My House is Your House” also celebrates the role that communities of like-minded individuals (partners of another sort) play in our creative endeavors. In opening up one’s home, and creating connections with those around us, we build exchanges that ultimately make our world meaningful.

REBUS RECONSTRUCTURING

Study for Three Peaks

Curated by John O'Brien and Cielo Pessione
Participating Artists: Wendy Adest, Nena Amsler, Daniel Brodo, Matty Byloos, Jamison Carter, April Durham, Samantha Fields, Margaret Griffith, Mary Addison Hackett, Erika Lizée, Mara Lonner, Meg Madison, Nancy Monk, John O'Brien, Cielo Pessione, Rebecca Ripple, Steve Roden, Joseph Santarromana, Jose Sarinana, Elizabeth Saveri, Telemachus Studios, Carolee Toon, Shirley Tse, Hoang Vu and Andre Yi.

This is an exhibition of 25 contemporary L.A. visual artists who participated in collaboration with Sistema Museo in the Umbria region of Italy. Artwork was selected or created by these artists to travel and be exhibited within the existing archeological fragments on view in the Archeological Museum of Amelia in summer 2009. Placing their artwork within these archeological remains provided artists with a unique opportunity to find a significant and unusual setting for their work and to interact with these important art historical sources. Rebus Reconstructuring documents the results of this process by displaying the selected artwork and photographic images of the artworks within the museum collections.

Structural Through-Line (Coherence)

Sequoia Mandala

Paul Davies | Christina Shurts | Andre Yi

February 27 – April 3, 2010

Opening Reception, Saturday, February 27th, 6 – 10pm

Lawrence Asher Gallery examines structure through the eyes and compositions of three distinctive painters. Paul Davies balances exquisite modern architecture in abstracted, painterly environs utilizing contemporary art-making techniques. Christina Shurts' loose and free application of paint reduces concerns with engineering principles of her super-structures. Dream states and imperfect memories serve as the catalyst of her creations. Andre Yi continues his masterly renderings of landscape and structure from a more focused, natural perspective. These paintings, inspired by his own photographs of National forests and parks, effectively examine man's complex relationship with the natural world.

PROSPECTS: AN EXPLORATION OF MINING at Sun Valley Center for the Arts

This multidisciplinary project will examine mining's history as well as its controversial present through lectures, visual arts exhibitions and films.

Mining is an essential part of the story of the Wood River Valley. Beginning in the 1860s, prospectors arrived in the valley in search of silver, galena and gold. The towns of Bellevue, Hailey and Ketchum sprang up to serve an influx of immigrants who came from Ireland, Wales, Germany and China to work the mines. Although eventually replaced by the sheep industry and later tourism, the long-term impact of mining on the valley continues to resonate.
