During “ARTCRIMES,” the curated burlesque performances from Burgundy included Kristina Nekyia, Brynn Route, Coco Ono, Gregory Barnett, and Katrina Kemp at the opening reception. “The first in a series of pop-ups, Artcrimes takes aim at the decay of our society in its servitude to commerce, particularly in this current political paradigm where personality and privilege have replaced the rule of law,” a statement says.

Scott Hove's (Hi-Fructose Collected 3) art is much more than just three dimensional cake- it also tells story. His former studio in San Francisco, better known as "Cakeland", featured a funhouse made of sweet, yet nightmarish cake sculptures. Now living and working in Los Angeles, Hove brings a piece of Cakeland to his current exhibition, "Pussy Jihad" at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. This exhibit plays with opposing ideals in society, while taking a look at the ethos of masculinity and femininity.
First featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 12, and soon our “Turn The Page: The First Ten Tears of Hi-Fructose” retrospective at Virginia MOCA, Scott Hove is an unforgettable name for his decadent, yet nightmarish "Cakeland" series that includes snarling 'taxidermied' cakes and elaborate installations. But his works are more than just a sweet experience. Hove's use of dualistic imagery in the cakes' fangs, horns and switchblades are there to add psychological depth and force the viewer to choose how to integrate the dark elements into the lightness of the cake. For years, the Los Angeles based artist's primary goal has been to make the experience as "satisfying" as possible, which makes his latest project all the more savory.
Scott Hove has a new two-part show with KP Projects in Los Angeles, implementing both locations of the gallery. The first, debuting Sept. 1, is a “an immersive Pentagon Cake Infinity Chamber” at the gallery’s Chinatown pop-up. The other is a multimedia art showcase at the La Brea location, with complete with an altar-like bed with sant fuchsia sheets and artificial flowers styled in Hove's typical blend of horror and deliciousness. "Last Ticket to the Beauty Train" is the title of the shows. Hove appears in "Turn the Page: The First 10 Years of Hi-Fructose," current running at the Crocker Art Museum.
Next Friday, La Luz de Jesus gallery in Hollywood will dot their walls with thousands of coasters for the third year in a row. As most artists will tell you, it is the smallest works that are the most challenging to create. In the case of the Coaster Show, where the coasters measure 4" inches round, they require confidence in one's technique and precision. Their sizes aren't the only aspect of the show that is small. The affordability of the works attracted hundreds of fans to last year's show, who scrambled to get a piece by one of their favorite artists. This year, that list includes well-known names alongside emerging talents.
