Beauty Beyond the Contemporary Sublime

at Samuel Freeman

May 14 to June 19, 2010

When a painter’s work asserts what can best be described as an aggressive argument for beauty, one gets the sense that the deconstruction of the art world has come full circle at last. Robert Rahway Zakanitch’s work – unflinching contrivances of color, form, texture and scale – is iconoclastic for the simplest of reasons: its sheer pursuit of beauty. On May 13, Zakanitch debuts “From a Garden of Ordinary Miracles”, an exhibition of new work at Samuel Freeman. Continue reading

Here’s a great endorsement of the latest at Samuel Freeman, courtesy of Lisa Boone with the Los Angeles Times Home Section:

“When Los Angeles-based designer Shawn Littrell read about an invasive bark beetle epidemic devastating our local forests, he was inspired to repurpose the beetle-ravaged timber.

Littrell’s turned-wood MvCvT tables (an acronym for Man vs. Climate Change vs. Trees), left, does just that. The tables, which cost about $800, are made from wood culled from groves just outside Los Angeles — timber that was slated for destruction by the U.S. Forest Service.”

Mart Design Center, designers, artists, buyers and well-dressed looky-loos  turned out en masse.

…and judging by the media reaction, people (such as our friends at Apartment Therapy) really liked it! Check out more images at the event site.
