#TBM Artist Interview- WAV Resident Colin Fraser Gray

#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/10/10)
Tea with Colin Frasercolinfrasergray artist
Before meeting with Colin Fraser Gray, I had the opportunity to browse through his website; www.colinfrasergray.com. The website gave me a brief overview of Colin’s work, and his accomplishments. His work is mesmerizing; it jumps out and literally shakes your soul. This was the feeling it gave me from looking at the online photo’s, to see his artwork close up in real life was an experience all its own. From my research I came across interesting facts on Colin. In 2006 Colin rocked the city of Santa Barbara with his controversial sculpture “W”. The sculpture is a toppled, upside down McDonalds sign with green arrows shot into it. A very powerful piece that, I took as a stance against the corporatism that was running rampant at the time, and the head honcho known as “Dubya”.

Simple ideas to get in shape for summer

30680408Did you know a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables is best for your health, but achieving that can be a challenge given everything you have to accomplish in a day. Daily meal planning doesn’t have to be such a chore if you turn to your freezer for a little help. In fact, starting with frozen prepared foods as the foundation of your dinner plate and adding side dishes with fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains and/or low-fat dairy can make it possible to serve a balanced meal that is quick and tasty. And that works for pizza night, too!

Jean Dubuffet Drawings at the Hammer

BEYOND THE 805
Jean Dubuffet Drawings at the Hammer
The current exhibition of Jean Dubuffet’s drawings at UCLA’s Hammer Museum is the first exhibition of Dubuffet’s drawings of this depth and scope. Consisting of almost 100 works created between 1935 and 1962 it spans Dubuffet’s most creative years, curated by Isabelle Dervaux, Acquavella Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings at the Morgan Library and Museum. The Hammer presentation is curated by Connie Butler, chief curator, with Emily Gonzalez-Jarrett, curatorial assistant. Dubuffet is in some ways the most influential and perhaps best French artists since WW II , so this show represents an important addition to the understanding of his work and post-war art history scholarship.

Moholy-Nagy at LACMA

Art Review
BEYOND THE 805
Moholy-Nagy at LACMA
Every so often a person is able to see the consequences of their current time so clearly, to see the lines of development play out ahead of them, it is as if they can see the future. In such a case it doesn’t seem so much as if they influence those who come after, so much as that they seem to almost live and work in the future. Laszlo Moholy-Nagy was such an artist. Working well over a half-century ago, there are few areas of our visual culture today that have not been touched or anticipated in some way by Moholy-Nagy. God knows what might have happened had he lived long enough to use a computer.
