Gallerist at Home: Paul Kopeikin
The Kopeikin Gallery is nestled amidst Culver City’s galleries on La Cienega. Offering a fresh and reliable dose of art to Angelenos, the gallery is a favorite respite of mine, mostly because of its versatile yet dependable shows, such as “Looking at Mexico” and “Alejandro Cartegena” in 2012 (reviewed here) or another favorite artist “

In the Studio: Process of a Painting with Laura Lark
Laura Lark (NAP #102) has been making pointillist portraits and video installations for the past decade. Painstakingly detailed and almost obsessive in artistic process and dot application (similar in methodology but even more precise than someone like Bonard Hughins), her portraits result in a delicate and even nostalgic aesthetic that walks a fine line; the softness of the images is almost undermined by the painstaking efforts it takes Lark to complete them.

In the Studio: Process of a Painting with Karen Ann Myers
Karen Ann Myers’ (NAP #100) series of scantily clad, young females rest on their beds, but seem unrested and uneasy. They look to the viewer in a confrontational and semi-seductive manner, as if being photographed or watched voyeuristically—thus positioning the viewer in an awkward role as the voyeur getting a glimpse into or playing an active role in the intimate space of these young women.

Momentary Brightness with Carolyn Swiszcz
Think of American Beauty’s famous plastic bag scene.
Or the morning you wake up feeling rested and recovered after a week of being sick.
Or that moment in your car when you look up to catch a streaky sunset in your rearview mirror.
