This body of work depicts the architecture and natural wonders in and around Death Valley, Panamint Valley and Amargosa Valley, California. At once beautiful and foreboding, the desolate and mysterious landscape, dotted by mining structures and architectural ruins, suggest a beauty whose extreme nature has pushed humanity back beyond its borders. The desert that once supported towns filled with miners in search of borax, salt and gold, is left only with visitors exploring and re-exploring this vast landscape.

The current work consists of architecture in and around the Randstad. The Ranstad refers to a ring of the four biggest cities in the Netherlands; Rotterdam, Amsterdam, The Hague, and Utrecht. The architectural landscape of Rotterdam is reminiscent of the Southern California landscape that has been the subject of my earlier paintings.

Kaus Australis, a residency in Rotterdam, Holland.
Samantha and I are soon to take up an artist residency in Kaus Australis, doing research for future art projects. In particular, I will be focusing on the way Rotterdam was constructed after the second World War, and its relationship to Los Angeles.
Down the block at the new Carl Berg Gallery (6018 Wilshire Blvd.), Berg is showing work from Los Angeles artist Andre Yi, an MFA graduate from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. The exhibition, entitled "Floating City," features eight works, all acrylic, ink and colored pencil on paper, depicting the sort of lower middle-class homes and food stands found in the diverse melting pot neighborhoods located between Beverly Hills and Downtown L.A.
In his first solo show Andre Yi focuses his attention on a Los Angeles that is well known to it’s residents, but features none of the iconic images that have become the myth of the Hollywood dream. The Los Angeles that Yi sees shows its charms through the small gesture of a vintage pastrami stand or the architecture of a middle class home in one of LA’s culturally and geographically diverse neighborhoods.
Drawn from LA (home is where the heart is), looks at how artists develop personal relationships to Los Angeles within the social context of home, and seeks to explore the attributes and characteristics of Los Angeles that help counteract the more isolating features of the city. This exhibition tours aspects of life in Los Angeles from the perspectives of nine LA-based artists, Mari Eastman, Heidi Kidon, Alice K–nitz, David Korty, Dave Muller, Steven Shackelford, Mungo Thomson, Kerry Tribe, and Andre Yi, who are represented by a broad range of works on paper and/or sculpture.
The Korean Cultural Center of Los Angeles is pleased to host Fractals , an exhibition of 11 artists working in a variety of media. The show? will investigate the range of approaches to the concept of fractals.
