Beauty, Divinity and Universality: The art of Laura Jones

Andrew McIlroy
Andrew McIlroy
4 June 2019

Sydney art dealer Tim Olsen describes artist Laura Jones as “the real deal”.  In an era where so many artists are caught in an existential crisis, paroled by a desire to create pretty work in order to appeal to the widest possible audience, Jones transcends this hubbub.

Paul Davies: The Roaring Daze at Olsen Gruin

Whitehot Magazine
Kurt McVey
June 1, 2019

Davies, a Sydney, Australia native now living in Los Angeles, pulls his visual references heavily from legendary if not infamous architectural structures, which he personally documents using digital photography and later (often years later) renders up in his large-scale, pulpy (in the full Tarantino version of the word) acrylic on canvas paintings. The show also features one-off, sunset-pastel, long-exposure photograms as well as his minimal, hand-painted, laser cut sculptures.

EDITOR’S NOTE

McLean Edwards said to writer Saskia Beudel, as they spoke in his studio, ‘We should be fearsome, us artists and writers. People should tremble when we enter the room.’ Few painters can claim to be an inspiration to their generation as Edwards can.

Step Into Australian Desert Dreamtime at Olsen Gruin Gallery

LA Weekly
Jordan Riefe
May 10, 2019

Walk into Olsen Gruin Gallery in Culver City and step into another place and time. Surrounding viewers are what look like large-scale abstract expressionist paintings from the mid-century by mavericks who drank, cursed and smoked too much. But titles like "Mamungari ‘nya," "Ngura Pilti" and "Ngayuka mamaku ngura ini Makiri," all painted in 2018, are the first hint these might not be what they look like. In fact, they are figurative paintings by indigenous artists from Central Australia that constitute the dazzling new show, APY Lands LA: Central Desert Painters of Australia, through May 30 in Culver City. Presented in partnership with the Australian Consulate-General Los Angeles, it is the largest collection of Australian indigenous art ever shown in the Southland.

Featured image:  Taylor Cooper, "Malara: 1 Wanampi Tjukurpa" 2018. acrylic on linen, 59.8 x 48 inches
