Mark Stock

W (Hollywood Series), 1995

Oil, Collage & Encaustic on Linen, 84 x 47 ¼ “

Mark Stock’s paintings connect viewers to the euphoria, loneliness and sometimes fatal entanglements of romance. Often melodramatic and tinged with irony, Stock’s images illustrate love’s power to provoke our best – and most illicit – behavior. A well-dressed voyeur peeks through a mansion window, silent and intent on the object of his desire. Picknicking lovers lock into each other’s eyes. An attractive woman smokes a cigarette as she sits next to a man’s corpse, which has been rolled neatly in a carpet, ready for disposal. A butler steals a moment to treasure lipstick left on a glass by the woman who employs him.

Sheldon Greenberg

Untitled (Blue), 2000

Oil on Gesso Panel, 56 x 48″

According to Greenberg “Paint has always been a sensual experience for me. Oil paint has a liquidity that allows me to get to the emotion of my figures quickly and allows movement of the colors and forms. The paint must be wet during the entire working process for the effect of the blurred images. These paintings are about a moment or memory, much like recollecting a dream the morning after. It is exciting to work at perfecting a painting, all the while, not knowing how it will actually look upon completion. The end result is not figured out, it is a random occurrence that comes from building something up and then wiping it away. What is left is the residue or essence of the image—much like a sandcastle worn away by a wave, a beautiful artifact, or a recalled memory that loses all detail. You are left with an outline of a story that is finished differently by each person who sees it. This combined with the split and blurred images that recall film clips, or the mystery of a single moment, get you as close as you can without being in focus.

Digitally enhanced painting on canvas, 48” x 113”

Peter Alexander started as an architect, and developed a reputation in the 1960s for creating translucent resin sculptures. He is also a prolific painter who has focused on landscape views of the lights of Los Angeles, as well as murals. In addition, he enjoys fame outside of the art world, with his work appearing in movies such as Erin Brockovitch, Terminator 3, and Shopgirl. Alexander was commissioned to paint a mural for the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and he was awarded a Fellowship of the National Endowment for the Arts in 1980. His work has been seen in Fogg Art Museum in Massachusetts, Getty Museum in California, Minneapolis Institute of Contemporary Art in Minnesota, Museum of Contemporary Art in Hawaii, and many other museums and galleries across the United States.

Charles Arnoldi

Trail, 2002

Acrylic on canvas, 48 x 74″

Claiming, “I’m just trying to make art with some sense of dignity, and honesty, and integrity,” Charles Arnoldi has been blurring the boundaries between painting and sculpture, abstraction and representation throughout his long and celebrated career. He started showing his work in the 1970s, consisting of compositions crafted from sticks he would gather from orchards and woods. Whether affixed to the canvas in thick clusters or structured into geometric, openwork wall hangings and sculptures, the sticks both resemble and inform the vigorously painted lines that appear in his later paintings. From sticks, he moved on to pigmented plywood, glued together into thickly layered sheets, which he would shape and mark with a chainsaw. In his more traditional, acrylic-on-canvas paintings, Arnoldi translates nature and architecture into abstract compositions that hint at their source imagery, including windows, Hawaiian flora, and purple potatoes.

Robert Longo

Men in the Cities (Joanna & Larry), 1983

Framed Lithographs, 72 x 38 ¼”

The Westside Media Center lobby features Joanna & Larry, seminal works from the Men in the Cities series by the world-renowned artist and film director, Robert Longo who became a rising star in the 1980s. These images depicted sharply dressed men and women writhing in contorted emotion. A highly skilled draughtsman, Longo uses graphite like clay, molding it to create images like the writhing, dancing figures in this seminal series. Longo’s slick, illustrator style turns the work into a subtle comment on mass media and anonymity of people in an urban society.
