Several art galleries have opened in and around our neighborhood in recent years. One of them, the Martha Otero Gallery on Fairfax Avenue, opens a new exhibit starting Friday.
The exhibit, “To the Power Of,” is the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles by local artist Jen Stark.
According to the gallery:
Jen Stark’s work is instantly recognizable for its breathtaking color spectrums rendered in mind-bending forms cut from paper, wood and other organic materials.
Stark’s sculptures seemingly reconstruct elements of time, nature and the cosmos on an exponential scale. She draws inspiration for her works from the rhythmic visual qualities of mandalas and other such sacred objects, while they simultaneously behave like the imagery of topographic maps, geometric repetitions and three-dimensional prisms.
There will be an opening reception on Friday (September 28, 2012) from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The exhibit will run through November 10 at the Martha Otero Gallery, 820 N. Fairfax Avenue (between Waring and Willoughby).
