    A lot has happened since our last gallery opening, but MASH has been looking forward to putting together our next downtown Los Angeles exhibition, “The 99%”.  This exhibition, curated by veteran curator David Rubin, showcases three Latinx artists: Albert Alvarez, Jodi Bonassi, and José Lozano.  It was unplanned, but we feel that this exhibition works well with the current state of the nation amidst the COVID-19 virus as it has spread throughout our home city of Los Angeles and all over the United States.

    What a wild and unbelievably fun weekend it was, hosting two back to back Openings for the À GOGO Exhibition. Starting on a high note, almost literally, MASH opened the À GOGO Pop-Up at the LOFT of the W Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard.  Exhibiting over 20 artists and almost 100 works of art, the À GOGO Pop-Up was a big smash! Surrounded by the Los Angeles City Skyline, and a gorgeous rooftop pool, it was fairly easy to be awestruck.  Nonetheless, all the attention was on the art.

    Featuring 12 different artists, each with their own unique styles and influences, MASH Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles has opened our newest exhibition, MORPH. This exhibition aims to celebrate the bizarre, showcasing paintings and sculptures by Los Angeles artists and international artists from around the globe. 

     

    Throughout art history, artists have intentionally distorted the human figure to create some of the most well known and impactful masterpieces. The works featured  in this exhibition function together as both an acknowledgment of the historical trajectory of artists creating figurative works, and a deviation from the standard ideas of taste, pushing the boundaries and redesigning the human form. By contorting the figure, the artist advances the composition, generating the bizarre with the goal to lead the viewer through an open-ended story of emotional intensity and humor.

     

    In Erik Mark Sandberg‘s portrayals, skin turns to radioactive pink spaghetti - but that doesn’t stop the subject of Sky with Leopard Print Tee and Boots (2011) from sporting nifty fashions.

    “Figurine” is a Solo Exhibition by Haleh Mashian, an expressionist painter who works in a variety of media.  Mashian is in a constant state of exploration and her solo exhibition is an exemplary illustration of the ground-breaking techniques she uses in her art. Her large scale figurative expressionist collages are painted from live models but reflect universal themes of the feminine sublime and its energy in shaping environments.
