Further Adventures in Abstraction
Opening: July 19
SOZE Gallery (West Hollywood Location)
SOZE GALLERY presents the solo exhibition “Remi Rough: Further Adventures in Abstraction” as the inaugural show at their new space in West Hollywood. After three successful years at their Downtown location, they open the doors to a beautiful new space in West Hollywood. International artist Remi Rough has been represented by SOZE since the beginning, so they figured there was no better way to commemorate this new location than to bring him back to LA for another knock out show.
Opening: July 19
Eno, whose true identity was unmasked about three years ago in an accidental interview slip, is having a solo exhibition at the Backwoods Gallery this July. As a somewhat controversial artist himself, he got deeply interested into the work of Charles F. Goldie, an early 20th century New Zealand painter, whose oeuvre excelled in depictions of portraits of Maori people, although it was later called out as ‘racist’. The exhibition entitled Drawing Blood will showcase a series of work focused on the dogmas contained in the work of Goldie, and subsequently, Eno, while re-examining ideas behind the perception of truth, taboo and the impact of colonization. Drawing Blood is a symbolic, painful and powerful reminder of the rich historical heritage of New Zealand, displayed through a postmodern visual language.
