GDCA's Delson Lounge is pleased to announce our July, 2020 Solo Exhibition:


Stacia Gates "Surrender"

July 6th - 31st, 2020


In her most recent series of abstract mixed media paintings, Stacia Gates reveals her most personal work to date - intimate and soul-searching meditations in a near mono-chromatic palette - predominantly shades of blue.


In a delightful twist, the artist utilizes industrial grade plaster to create highly textured dreamscapes; ethereal and serene visual sojourns into the subconscious. 


While profoundly and directly influenced by nature - the artist painted this series outside in her garden, surrounded by butterflies and birds - Gates creative journey aims inward - her painterly essays are examinations of personal mantras. At times the words are literally embedded and obscured inside the plaster. Obscured to the human eye but not to the senses, Gates’ messages are offerings that are not so much seen as felt.


Feel free to contact us anytime with questions or to arrange for a masked & socially distanced in person appointment during our temporary business hours: Wednesday through Sunday from 12noon - 5pm!! 😷

"Chasing Blue started out as a “day-in-the-life” tryptych celebrating beach culture through the centuries

(referencing Boudin in particular), then morphed into a study of weather manipulation, and the impact of this
man-made cloud cover interference on the natural world and outdoor activities; hence Chasing Blue. This piece celebrates what once was, and what could be again." - Edem Elesh

The different colored circles show the different strains of Covid 19 that appeared around the world within a matter of days;

calling into question the true origins and purpose of this virus. The push pins reflect there is no safe haven from this
“invisible foe” anywhere in the world and turns the globe into a virus itself.
The gold toilet paper supports the world now. Res ipsa loquitur." - Edem Elesh

“My work is personal, poetic and lyrical. Emphasis is given to form, texture and color. It is my goal to elicit a familiar and pronounced mood in each of my viewers.

My images are at once geometric and biomorphic. In their mutability, they mimic our dreams. They mimic our lives." - Cheryl Hrudka

Stan Johnson, "Channeling Al", Digital Painting printed on Aluminum, (30" x 40").

"I am a structural expressionist. At first, the two concepts seem ill suited. This awkward synthesis creates a dynamic tension in my work. By alternating structure (expression) in the figure and expression (structure) in the ground, the forces at play can be reconciled." - Stan Johnson

Suki Kuss "Girl Kimono #1", Acrylic, Mixed Media on Canvas, (36" x 36"). 

info

“This new series, Girl in a Kimono, represents my continuing interest in the growth and importance of women’s artistic work as well as a fascination with the Pattern and Decoration art movement. Use of textured materials, fabric and embroidery were long considered “women’s work” and not fine art.

My kimono’s are “femmage” pieces honoring the work of Miriam Schaprio, whose work blurs the line between art and craft. Her color saturated pieces inspired me to explore the opposite of that spectrum. The use of an almost monochromatic palette is my own feminine statement and is representative of my belief that both a loud and soft voice can be heard in art”. - Suki Kuss

"I am a contemporary artist living and working in Los Angeles where sunlight feeds everything I do. The studio where I work is built like a big treehouse overlooking colorful gardens and water features and from this point of view I can focus my energy.

In my work, I attempt to connect curvilinear shapes to human emotion, memory and dreams, resulting in an interaction of dynamic elements and often leading to circular shapes. Circular shapes can mean many things; certainty, completion, or a sense of calm as life may be in balance. These shapes are a personal fascination that keeps finding a way in and out of my consciousness and my work. 


I strive to bring as much joy and love into the work because I feel like this is why we are here on this planet, to “Dream Love”.. - Linda Stelling

"My art combines the concept of fluidity, improvisation and structure. These pieces are meant to convey various messages, emotions and ideas challenging the very core of how we perceive life today. It is meant to be a reflection of our mistakes, insecurities and guilty pleasures. The intent is for you to see the beauty found in pain, and the undeniable pain found in all things beautiful."
