“Cold Water” New Works by Andrew Hem

by CaroPosted on

Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Hem’s highly anticipated new solo project “Cold Water” opened last month at LeBasse Projects.  By the time doors had opened, Hem’s entire exhibition was sold. Owner Beau Basse complimented the artist on his strong point of view and enthusiasm, who confronted themes of isolation and personal conflict in the “Cold Water” series. The exhibition is laid out as a chronological story filled with private references and lush new environments. Each painting feels illuminated by a cold palette of primarily blue and green corpse-like figures, rising from solitude to seek a road to happiness.  “Cold Water” shares its opening with Melissa Haslam’s “Kigurumi”, now exhibiting at the Lebasse Chinatown space. On view until August 13th, opening night photos after the jump. – Caro
