“Dekor Gallery present the work of Manuel Nunez. He finds a spiritual beauty in his subjects that shines through all of his artwork. Like artists since the beginning of historical records, in the beauty of the female form he sees evidence of heavenly grace. “My images are of strong women,” Nunez says. “Women who are sensual and virtuous, wrestling with the underlying conflict of what life is versus what it should be.” His paintings are presented in a style rich in symbolism. Manuel portrays the dichotomies of life. While gold can symbolize decadence or indulgence, Manuel uses gold to represent God’s righteous purity, as in Russian icon art.
At Findings Art Center, Ceramic students from LA Harbor College will display personal insights through inspired sculptural interpretations. Taking clay beyond the functional norm, these pieces, like all art, are open to the imagination of the viewer. Douglas Esparza lends his architectural perspective by sculpting abstract brick surfaces into a montage of textures. Hayward Nishioka looks to nature’s diverse patterns to create surface drama to his vessels. Neena Lee’s figurative works reflect her interpretation of the psychological vulnerabilities of man. Jason Collier’s detailed monsters are both “real” and imaginary at the same time.
Machine Studio is a community asset that provides graffiti artists with a place to make and exhibit their work. This month the show continues to celebrate Women’s History Month with the work of 25 women artists.
