THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE PART II: Let’s Check Out Tokyo Nonsense, Sat 10/4 Opening

Ok everyone! Anyone free this Saturday? Let’s go to the opening reception to this exhibit this Saturday. What: Scion Installation L.A. is pleased to present TOKYO NONSENSE, a group exhibition featuring new work by 11 young Japanese artists who live and work in Tokyo. The title, TOKYO NONSENSE, not only refers to the city itself but also references the word “nonsense” in the context of Japanese popular culture, connoting so-called “modern decadence” and the rebellious, anti-establishment spirit of the 1960s student protest movement. The work of these 11 young artists reflects both Tokyo’s frenetic energy and the banal realities of everyday city life. The exhibition will consist of more radical forms of expression such as performance, video, and installation art in addition to more traditional mediums such as drawing, painting, and woodblock printing. Original work by: Ichiro Endo, Taro Izumi, Ai Kato (aka ai*madonna), Sachiko Kazama, Iichiro Tanaka, and the six-member artist group, Chim?Pom When: October 4 – October 25, 2008 Opening Reception: October 4th, 7p-10p

Where: Scion Installation LA Gallery 3521 Helms Ave. (at National) Culver City, CA 90232 Map Who’s in?

Meticulous Landscape Paintings Beautifully Represent Intangible Emotional States

Artist Crystal Liu intimately ties her emotional states to beautiful abstract paintings. In large-scale works, she constructs landscapes that are metaphors for the intangible forces that drive us. Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
