Four distinct artists- Andrew Brandou, The London Police, Redd Walitzki, and Richard J. Oliver– will show alongside each other next Saturday at CHG Circa. Simply titled “FOUR”, their collective show ranges in a variety of styles and themes that portray ethereal environments. Notably, this exhibit is Redd Walitzki’s (covered here) Los Angeles debut of her enchanting laser cut paintings. Her images seem to evaporate into their flowery borders, representing her subject’s own subconcious. Andrew Brandou also plays with a floral motif, the chrysanthemum, in his paintings of a cartoony world of friendly Buddahs and bunnies. His roots in animation shine through in his vibrant and graphic line work. The London Police compliment these with a new series of graphic paintings, while Richard J. Oliver offers perhaps the darkest images of sorrowful young girls playing out a tragic fairytale.

“FOUR” featuring new work by  Andrew Brandou, The London Police, Redd Walitzki, & Richard J. Oliver opens at CHG Circa, on February 14th, 2015.

In today's advertising world, it's almost impossible the avoid visual landscape of company brand names and logos. We endulge in a pop culture that is virtually paid for and made possible by "product placement", creating often unwelcome interruptions. This Saturday, CHG Circa gallery's artists have chosen to interrupt their own imagery in "Product Displacement". Consumerism is a necessary evil to a healthy economy that has intrigued artists for decades. Perhaps the most famous example is Andy Warhol, whose works like the Campbell soup cans forced us to reckon with big business' presence in our lives. Artists such as Eric Joyner, Buff Monster, Shag, Brandi Milne, Richard J. Oliver, Andrew Brandou, Ron English, and Sylvia Ji take a cue from artists like Warhol to publicize their own experiences with advertising.

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Fresno, Luke Chueh (featured in HF Vol. 24) has gained much notoriety in Los Angeles art scene with his colorful, illustrative paintings. His upcoming exhibition “Self-ish” at CHG Circa in Culver City, is the latest continuation of Chueh’s stand-out style. A cast of playful-looking characters, the adult world that they live in and the dissimilarity between the two is a primary theme of the 20 new pieces Chueh will have on display. "My work is an illustrative exploration of visual and narrative contrast" Chueh said describing his work.
