David Hochbaum, a seriously cool mixed media artist will have a solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City this Saturday, September 15th. This new show will “feature a sculpture installation created from hundreds of ladders and faux birds, completing the theme of nomadic displacement.” Sounds great, I can’t wait to see the new works.
I recently got into this artist and have really been drawn in by his style, two of my favorite forms of art, photography and painting, and he mixes them so well. I would really love to know how he gets the photos to set into the paint and mix in so seamlessly. I’ve seen mixed media before where the photo looks clearly “slapped” in, whereas his looks like it supposed to be there. Yet again, more work I need to see in person.
