Los Angeles artist Jim Shaw's renderings of the Bible in his signature comic book style command a corner of the gallery.
Foam oozing from garbage cans is part of artist Michel Blazy's investigations into the brief and transformative qualities of organic matter.
We?ve never given Barnsdall Art Park much thought except as a place to enjoy the Los Feliz-adjacent greenspace while attending a Friday night wine tasting. But now we?ve gained a new respect for the place since we saw a mind-blowing exhibit there called ?Lost (in LA).?
Organized by curator Marc-Olivier Wahler in cooperation with the France Los Angeles Exchange, ?Lost (in LA)? sounds a bit odd on paper: In it, French and U.S. artists create works that explore identity, as well as the meanings of the hit television series Lost. It?s an audacious proposition, which makes sense since Wahler wows Paris with his Palais de Tokyo exhibition space?s challenging exhibits and open-until-midnight hours.
Though the Barnsdall gallery?s hours are more limited (it is open Thursday through Sunday and closes at 5 p.m.), a visit still confirms our city?s world-class art stature. Pieces reference life in Los Angeles obliquely: Giant concrete-block wheels by Frenchman Vincent Ganivet suggest construction and mobility, while Californian Robert Kinmont?s black-and-white photos of dirt roads recall the rural landscape so close by.
