Culver City’s art culture exploded with new exhibitions last weekend, including KAWS at Honor Fraiser (covered here) and Yoskay Yamamoto at LeBasse (covered here). Thinkspace Gallery also kicked off September with new artworks by Aaron Nagel, Jeff Ramirez, and Jennifer Nehrbass – with Lindsay Carr’s debut, sold-out solo (previewed here.) Although exploring new themes independently, the exhibition is united by a common hyperrealism and surreal narrative. Aaron Nagel painted alternative nudes, Jeff Ramirez played with masked subjects, while Jennifer Nehrbass placed her subjects in otherworldly landscapes. In one painting, Nehrbass builds a bone dry mountain out of animal skeletons, exhibited beside a portrait of a modern girl wearing African neck rings. In this way, each artist seems to challenge the viewer’s concept of beauty or disguise.
