THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE – ART+CULTURE: Lost in the Thicket

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 17th, 7pm-10pm @ LeBasse Projects

In this weekend’s art+culture pick of the week, we head to LeBasse Projects in Culver City, California. Lost in the Thicket is a solo exhibition by artist Nate Frizzell. In this much anticipated show, Frizzell introduces new themes of self discovery within his work.

While Frizzell has always striven to create work that speaks about the human condition, Lost in the Thicket finds the artist’s scope narrowed to the concept of discovering one’s own identity and the obscured paths that follow. As a result, each painting becomes a metaphor for choosing different paths in life, while finding oneself.

The recipient of a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design, the California-born, Los Angeles-based artist merges elements of a contemporary illustrative style with classically rendered, highly realistic imagery. Equally tangible is the emotion Frizzell emits through his soulful subjects. Lost in the Thicket runs through November 7th, 2009, with the opening reception on Saturday, October 17th, 7pm-10pm.

After first marveling at her embroidered animals last year, she’s back with even more meticulously stitched woodland creatures. Some of them are no larger than a thimble. Using subtle color changes and countless passes of the satin stitch, Giordano mimics the look of fur on hopping rabbits, sleepy squirrels, and scurrying mice.
