We hope you have a chance to view new works by Iva Gueorguieva at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects this coming weekend, or through August 23rd. This show is not to be missed! Gueorguieva was the focus of our Spotlight in edition #91 of New American Paintings. She opened up about her process, the importance of cutting in her work, and how something as simple as sound informs the paintings she makes.

Stephanie Washburn’s “Twice Told” at Mark Moore Gallery

In “Twice Told,” Stephanie Washburn’s inaugural solo show at Mark Moore Gallery, Washburn creates a distinct and unusual medium through a combination of many.  Mixing paint, digital media, and everyday three-dimensional items, she creates the surface for and subject of her photographs.

In her “Reception” series, Washburn makes what she calls “television drawings” based off of her intervention and reinterpretation of pop culture images that act as a backdrop of her colorful photography. - Ellen C. Caldwell

Charlene Liu’s Triple Threat at Taylor De Cordoba

In her third solo show “Everywhere Close to Me” at Taylor De Cordoba, Charlene Liu creates and mediates really special moments with her works on paper.  Using delicate cutouts, overlapping and woven papers, and sculptural pigmented pulpy constructs, Liu creates a world that is both delicate and daring.

Shaken and Stirred: Jonas Wood at David Kordansky Gallery

Straight up, Jonas Wood’s solo show at the David Kordansky Gallery (through May 12th) is one of my favorite shows of 2012 thus far.  His larger-than-life, vibrant, and bright paintings are fetching, nostalgic, and cheerful.  They are not “cheerful” in a sickening, sugarcoated, Katy-Perry-esque way, but in one that is varied, unexpected, and welcome.  Some of the imagery and styles bring to mind childhood memories and the accompanying nostalgic feelings. - Ellen Caldwell, LA Contributor

Holly Coulis’ Fruits and Florals at Cherry and Martin

Walking into Holly Coulis’ solo show at Cherry and Martin, I was surprised to see a majority of large, boldly imagined paintings of flowers, fruits, and vegetable still lifes interspersed with and handful of blurred, dulled landscapes. - Ellen Caldwell, Los Angeles Contributor

The Limitless Possibilities of Firelei Báez at the Richard Heller Gallery

Firelei Báez’ solo show “Not Even Unalterable Limitations” at the Richard Heller Gallery is saturated with dense color and rich content.  While at her show, I repeatedly heard the muffled sound of visitors oohing and aahing their awe and approval from the gallery’s large entryway, before even fully stepping inside.

Culver City Art District Gallery Guide and ZList

Over the past few years we have come across Zach Peabody, an artist and art observer, at the various art fairs throughout the country. Usually when we find him, he's got his camera pointed at the walls of the fair, documenting as much art as he can. When asked what he does with the photos, he mentioned that he puts the thousands of photographs on Facebook to stimulate conversation about the contemporary art world.

Mapping our Foreclosures, One Quilt at a Time: Kathryn Clark

Kathryn Clark’s (NAP#97) sewn pieces draw on an established quilting aesthetic and tradition.  Visually, they evoke memories of my grandma’s quilts, patch working, and hand-sewn labors of love.  Thematically, they record and capture a history.

Gallerist at Home: Catlin Moore

Catlin Moore, the Director of the contemporary Mark Moore Gallery and co-Director of 5790projects, is stylish, youthful and a definite force to be reckoned with.  Though she cites her collection as being “in its infancy” (especially compared to her father gallery-owner and namesake Mark Moore), her art and artifice at home make me drool.  An established arts writer and LA gallerist, Catlin has created a respite at home, reflecting a space where contemporary art browses with library-esque bookshelves, curiosity cabinets, and a tangible life of its own.
