Patricia Liverman’s Interview with Casa Marengo

Artist Patricia Liverman doesn’t so much apply paint in her work as she appropriates it. She peels paint from other canvasses, cuts or tears it further, then reassembles the pieces to create new works. “By freeing the paint from the canvas, I am able to use it in many different ways and to further investigate […]

Memento Mori

Memento Mori

Oscar Magallanes is an Asuza native. Having worked as a graphic designer for sixteen years, he is a self-taught artist. His perfectionism in regard to every detail when designing merged with his art, becoming the style for which he is known. He found his place in art when he couldn’t find his place as a […]

Sawhorse in Highland Park

Sawhorse in Highland Park

It’s eclectic. A bit funky. Kind of cool. It’s takes  a moment to get your bearings because it’s not immediately apparent what kind of shop is this Sawhorse in Highland Park. Looking around, there are paintings and mirrors, wooden wall cabinets, china sets, teapots, vases, toasters, books, and jewelry. The owner is Jim. He’s the […]

Googie Style & The Love Show

Googie Style & The Love Show

Upswept roofs. Curvaceous, geometric shapes. Glass, steel, and neon. Boomerangs, flying saucers, atoms, and parabolas. Mid-century modern. Googie Architecture.

Food Truck Tuesdays at Figueroa Produce

Food Truck Tuesdays at Figueroa Produce

It’s a tired trope in food writing: the reluctance of the writer to describe publicly an unsullied treasure, when a great deal of what’s worth treasuring is the absence of other people. People ruin everything, you know. Somewhere, a dissertation is being written this very minute about the self-loathing incurred by discharging one’s duty, common […]

North by Northeast

North by Northeast

Ah, November in Northeast Los Angeles: mosaic-hued black walnut trees, emboldened coyotes, the Arroyo Arts Collective 18th Annual Discovery Tour.

NELA: where decay meets death meets drawing (and more).

This year’s pre-Thanksgiving art extravaganza has been dubbed “North by Northeast,” perhaps to firmly establish the geographic identity of the art-centric area that, after 100+ years of unflagging, creative activity, has suddenly been discovered by international publications such as The New York Times and the Financial Times of London.

It’s good to be an overnight success.
