Collection and Analysis 2, Mounted Pigment Print, 20.5"x20.5", 2009

I have unearthed myself from my holiday hibernation to bring you a smattering of shots from my latest curatorial endeavor. “Plastic Makes Perfect” features the work of San Francisco-based photographic artist Aron Cohen. The opening of the show was met with rave reviews, due most certainly in part to Cohen’s ability to surprise viewers and invoke wonder with aesthetically appealing and conceptually intriguing works of art. Cohen composes his subject matter in such a way as to create a sense of abstraction that one would expect from a painting. Executed through the photographic process, Cohen stages his materials and carefully composes each piece. The resultant images portray a sense of ethereal space, weightlessness, and an embodiment of the immaterial. For more on this collection of work, please follow the jump. (more…)

July 20, 2009 – Lainya Magaña and Space07 are pleased to present Pull, a collection of new work by Sacramento artist, Micah Crandall-Bear. In these recent works, Micah pulls from the founders of Abstract Expressionism and the painters that influence him the most. Micah’s artistic arrangements are imbued with hints of Pollock’s vivacity, Rothko’s clarity, and Motherwell’s unmitigated compositions. Expressing Micah’s unique perspectives and understanding of color, Pull will feature a variety of colorful acrylic works on canvas.

MICAH CRANDALL-BEAR is an abstract painter based in Sacramento, CA. He has made a name for himself with his bold, abstract compositions that stir the imagination and awake the observer’s creative consciousness. As Micah states: “The alchemy of art offers an allure that unfolds somewhere between concept and destination. It is here that I find my best work.” Micah has worked under the tutelage and guidance of several highly recognized California artists. His work resides in numerous private collections.
