    #24 - Debra Scacco on AIR LACI

    Artist Debra Scacco was working on an art project about the LA River when she visited “LACI” (Los Angeles Clean Technology Incubator), and was struck by the facilities’ impressive list of equipment, including laser cutters, a horizontal band saw and a vacuum oven. Tools that are rarely available for an artist. She saw an opportunity for exchange, between the people working with various starts up on green initiatives at LACI and artists that work with climate related themes. She founded AIR LACI, an artist-in-residency program open for research lead L.A. based artists. We talk about this special program, that perhaps is more of a fellowship than a residency.

    #23 - Karen Hellman on Oscar Rejlander

    Stockholm-born Oscar Gustave Rejander (1813–1875) relocated to the UK in the 1830s. Some twenty years later he abandoned his profession as a painter to pursue a career in photography. Karen Hellman, assistant curator in the Department of Photographs at the Getty Museum talks about the medium of photography in the 1850s – what it was and what Rejlander thought that the medium could do. Rejlander’s position as an outsider allowed him to do what was not expedited, like double exposures, photographic manipulations and retouching. Today he is often referred to as the father art photography, a pioneer experimenting with the medium. We talk about his legacy and how it fits within photo history and about his wife Mary Bull, her role as a model and support running the studio in Kentish Town, London.

In the show she presents Awolowo Road, a wall piece made in Nigeria. To be more precise in Awolowo Road in Lagos. She describes her stay in the sprawling city, the feeling of becoming a part of its bustling energy, and how the location impacted her work.

    #21 - Chelsea Boxwell on Abstraction

    Color is the most relevant ingredient in Chelsea Boxwell’s work. She takes fondly about the similarities between house paint and shiny pink fabrics she finds around the warehouses in The L.A. Fashion District. Painting is an act, and she paints without a conception in mind. The concept of the painting comes after. Equally, the installation of her work is site-specific, in correspondence with the specific room at a specific time. Also, glitter makes everything more active and she keeps an optimistic attitude.

    #20 - Heather Day on Abstraction

    We all see things differently, but Heather Day filters color in a particular way. Quite late in life she found out that she has synesthesia. She works intuitively, often pushing paint around and recalls an obsession with color from an early age. Over the years her studio and paintings have grown larger. From pastels on paper, via wider brushes on canvas to murals and spray paint, her whole body is always involved in the act of painting. She speaks on how she decides when a work is finished; the evolution of a painting from the materials touching, to the making of the painting and documentation.

    #19 - Ladan Sedighi on Abstraction

    Ladan Sedighi creates works that gives a sense of pleasure and excitement, inviting the audience to interact with their reflection in delightful shiny surfaces. Moving around the artwork feels like being inside of a piece of jewelry, the colors changing and expanding in correspondence with the light in the room. We speak about how California has influenced her work both the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the Light and Space movement combined with aesthetics of Persian art and architecture, all important sources of inspiration.
