Pretty In Plastic Preview: SKULL CAR by Shane Geil

Check out the SKULL CAR in all of its glossy Metallic Purple glory! A mysterious new piece being developed by Shane Geil. Four wheels that promise good times and two domed eyes that can see into your soul…

The SKULL CAR is about the size of a Basketball! Shane Geil's design came to life in concept sketches that were translated into a digital model. The remote controlled SKULL CAR was then CNC milled for precision and vacuum formed to be light weight on the chassis for maximum speed!

GARAGE SALE this weekend!!!

Press Release:
Clearwithguts presents Garage Sale. Garage (pronounced how I say it: "garr- ridge") Sale is hosted by MutonIsMyFriend and is a word of mouth pop-up gallery/art-show/party held in a garage. The idea is for people to come along, check out some affordable art, hang out and have fun! 
Who is involved? 
So far confirmed are: Velocitron, Josh Herbolsheimer, Mitchell Edmonds, Brian Flynn, Splurrt, Monster Worship, Adam Middleton/RabbitsAndRobots, Toby Dutkiewicz/Devils Head Productions, Scott Wilkowski, JulieB/Pretty In Plastic, Dennis Hamaan/Shirihama, David Coffman, Megan Kelly, Uh-Oh Toys, Ralph Consentino and last, but certainly not least, Datadub/Fig-Lab. That doesn't even include at least one, and possibly more, extra special surprise guests!
What makes Garage Sale different? Artistic contributors decide their own prices and keep 100% of the proceeds. The idea is to show an eclectic quality mix of toys and art. It's a fun alternative to galleries, not an attempt to take them on or step on their toes. No hype. No egos. No pretensions. The idea is fun.
What is the motivation behind Garage Sale? In monetary terms – nothing - In fact it'll be a money loser for me. However, it will be a chance for me to give something back to a scene I love and that has provided me a lot of joy and camaraderie over the last few years. I’m not an artist, or a toy maker, so this is what I came up with. My time is very precious, but I'd love to give this a shot and see where it goes.
When is it? The inaugural show is on Saturday December 1st starting at 3 PM until 8 PM.
Where is it? 1239 N. Hoover Street, Los Angeles, CA 90029. Near all your Sunset Junction favorites like Akbar, El Cid and Del Taco.
Where can I find more information? Check out http://clearwithguts.com/ for updates, background, info and sneak previews of what's in store.

Garage Sale is 100% non-profit and all sales will be cash only. Thanks for listening!

Pretty In Plastic For Kozyndan "Breaking Circles, Broken Light" at Narwhal Gallery


Narwhal presents Breaking Circles, Broken Light, Los Angeles-based artists Kozyndan’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. Prolific collaborators Kozyndan—partners Kozue and Dan Kitchens—are known for their beguiling drawings, prints, and sculptures that seduce through their facility with degrees of representation that shift from the photorealistic to the cartoonish, their gentle humour, wanton use of colour and sometimes haunting imagery. More info below...


Notorious zoophiles, for this show Kozyndan had initially pla
nned to create a visual ode to those species of the animal world being lost to extinction. Early into the production of work for this exhibition, while visiting Hawaii, the artists encountered an enormous rainbow flexing over the ocean, its awe-inspiring scale anchoring it in the realm of the truly sublime. Kozyndan experienced this manifestation as philosopher Emmanuel Kant, in his The Critique of Judgment (1790) describes such ineffable apparitions as calling forth ideas of limitlessness and totality. Truly discombobulated, Kozyndan felt the need to try to address this sense in their new body of work.

Breaking Circles, Broken Light includes new sculptures and works on paper as a nuanced ode to taking delight in the beauty, form, and presence of the animals we live amongst, the myths we’ve formulated about them, and the joy they inspire. Yet the work is also heavy with the knowledge that the ties that bind us to animals, and the connections that hold us all together, are the same ones that humans are using to slowly strangle the life out of the world we share. In Leaving Encante, Amazon River boto dolphins are shown in their mythic form as shapeshifting ‘encantandos’ known to take human form and either beguile or terrify the people they encounter. In We Come Together To Make The World Fun! red pandas form a tight ring to conjure a spectral appearance out of the ether. Kozyndan beguile us with the gorgeous, charming, endangered, storied animals that populate these new works while simultaneously sounding a subtle and resonant call to action.
