The Art of Transformation
Apr 15- May 20

This exhibit showcases what artists do best: modify the mundane into materials for magic.

We bring together three unique artists who use simple materials like wood, paint and lenses to construct objects so brimming with frightened embarrassment and innocence, that it feels like life looking back at you. This sense of presence is all.

Birth, transition and death are all paid homage in their turn, reminding viewers that shapes are only temporary and shift is certain.

Ghost Farms

by Alan Bray

Casein on Panel, 2020

Nature, keenly seen and unseen, is the subject in this American painter’s work. Bray works in casein on panel, a method perfected by 14th Century painters, which requires thousands of delicate brush strokes to achieve an exceptional clarity of light. 

As Portland Museum of Art curator, Jessica Nicoll wrote, “Bray’s paintings are distillations rather than an actual representation of the natural world… Bray selects and combines elements to construct his slightly surreal landscapes. They are landscapes of memory. Veering away from the landscape tradition of the last one hundred and fifty years, with its emphasis on immediacy and epic sweep, Bray creates intimate vistas in his studio that are recollections of his experience in the world.”

Throughout his 40 year career, Bray has recorded the way time shapes landscapes and, distinct from plein air, paints unique meditations by braiding memory and rumination with the impression of the senses.

Peter Cohen on EDGE
Sep 24 - Oct 29

Peter Cohen on EDGE.jpg

Doug Edge plays with the concept of ascension in this new series of paintings. They begin in a quiet corner before climbing out and covering entire canvases. In a clever take on art history, the artist complicates the idea first with value, then with color, and finally with configuration across a range of mediums including sculpture, canvases and prints.

LA minimalist fashion design Peter Cohen further develops the idea by bringing the paintings into fabric, allowing wearers to dress themselves and blur their own edges.

This show challenges the viewer to ask themselves:

Where does art end?
Where does life begin?

The edge is wherever you want it, baby!

SEIS Gallery Manfred Zylla Stage 1_edite


by Manfred Zylla

Acrylic on brown paper

Drive: LA highlights the works of Manfred Zylla, Chris Sullivan, and Zeina Baltagi. The show examines urgent issues including the dark absurdity in environmental panic, neon signs of cleanliness and class, and the evaluation of roads themselves as cultural objects. Taken together they move us to appreciate the interrelatedness of our everyday lives as Angelenos, driving up and down roads designed to take everybody for a ride.

Peter Lodato

Yin and Yang  and Pink and Black by Peter Lodato

(2002 and 2017, oil on canvas)

The gallery is proud to present Peter Lodato in our inaugural show. The artist uses layers of oil paint and varied brushwork to achieve a rich kind of abstract minimalism. Deceptively simple from across the room, they dissolve into a multicolored lavishness when seen up close. The paintings achieve a quiet kind of presence without clamoring for your attention. In kind collaboration with William Turner Gallery.
