Nathan Anderson, Christopher Bales, Howard Hallis, & GEA*

La Luz De Jesus Gallery presents the first feature exhibition for Nathan Anderson whose pop culture parody portraits are always among the first to sell in our Coaster Show. He’s in good company with Gea* whose first Los Angeles feature here last year was eagerly snatched up by hungry collectors–none of whom bought just one of her deliriously debased drawings of nymphs gone naughty.

It’s hard to believe that our last Howard Hallis show was 2011’s The Picture of Everything, which was the unveiling of a fifteen foot tall and twelve foot wide mixed-illustrated-media drawing of every pop culture reference imaginable up to that point, and which took thirteen years to complete. With the explosion of memes in the past six years you can expect this exhibition of Howard’s trademark lenticular collages to be both timely and timeless. And who better to pair with a wizard of three dimensions than Christopher Bales, whose own (actually) three-dimensional assemblages breathe new rococo life into rare and discarded fixtures, trophies, and even text books.

Opening Reception: June 2nd 8-11 PM

Location: 4633 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA. 90027

Breaking Down the Hierarchy: Four Women Shine

CAITLIN McCORMACK, KATHERINE BRANNOCK, GEA*, and GENIE MÉLISANDE

Exhibition Dates: June 3-26, 2016

“With Caitlin McCormack, Katherine Brannock, Gea* and Genie Mélisande, we get to showcase a full spectrum of pop surrealist provocation. We get to challenge your preconceptions about feminism as we push (perhaps uncomfortably) into material that apologetically confronts the notion of “ladylike” while flaunting its sophistication.”

The Coaster Show 2014

The Coaster Show 2014

The 2nd Annual Coaster Show is here!

“Last year, we dotted our walls with over 700 tiny masterpieces, and this year we’re looking to outdo ourselves–with over 1000! The rules are simple: Each coaster must be a solitary work (though it’s fine if several pieces work together contextually), and they must be priced $250 or less”.

Once again I was invited to take part in this diverse show.  I have 3 coasters available.  For more information visit:

La Luz De Jesus

The show runs from September 5-28.

Beer Is Art

beerisartBeer Is Art: The Coaster Show

“We’ve all done it. We’ve sat at the bar, drinking a beer and doodled on a coaster.

But most of us aren’t the extremely skilled painters, illustrators, animators, tattooists, sculptors or collage artists that are featured in this exhibition that takes a love of craft brewing and elevates it to high art.

The folks behind L.A. Beer Week produced a custom canvas for some of our favorite gallery folks to do what they do best, and transform a 4″ tondo coaster into museum worthy exhibition pieces”.

I was invited to partake in this show.  I have 3 coasters available.  For more information visit:  La Luz De Jesus
