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


Carol Cirillo Stanley "Still Life"

August 6th - 31st, 2020

Curated by Hilary Chapman & Petra Wright.


"Carol Cirillo Stanley plays with the traditional notion of the still life as black and white portraiture. The flora act as her subjects as she examines their unique personalities and characteristics. 


Here their true selves begin to unfold; sassy, sweet, demure, bitchy, strong, supportive, and courageous. Enjoy their whimsy, strength, and spirit, and most of all, get to know them!"



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!! 😷

"The view that is offered through the prism of California’s rediscovered beloved architectural it-factor, the glass-block, is one of liquification. We experience a fluid dance of colors and rhythm through portals of exquisite distortion. 


Filtered through a molten lens, we experience an altered reality… The components are recognizable, the colors feel familiar, but they are rearranged by the gravity of liquefaction.


Stripped of their definition, we are asked to leave behind words and names and meaning… and instead dive into the heart of the matter… we are carried straight into the soul of the world that surrounds us… a world of aqueous splendor." - Mark Brosmer

"Sunday: I wonder...Have you ever cried so hard that the landscape before you becomes a unfocused vision of pure color? Is this Gods way of soothing us? Again, a yin/yang of life. (Moss St.)


Saturday: I’m walking home from the farmers market when all of a sudden a whip of wind tears the bouquet from my hand and I’m surrounded by a liquified blur of peonies. A yin/yang of destruction and creation. (Peonies) " - Kathe Madrigal

"An airplane view of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest jungle appears endless and broccoli green, a blanket folded neatly and spreading as far as the eye can see and way into the horizon.

Jungle is more tangled and woven from top to bottom and side to side. A visit into the mysterious Rainforest requires acute attention to the edge of spaces between the leaves and branches and where sunlight breaks open the canopy of a giant tree. Remembering the sounds and shapes of leaves and where the trail gets muddy, makes it easier not to get lost. If a person just pays attention to the trail, getting lost is inevitable and terror will take over the imagination of the unknown.
The Rainforest has its own heartbeat and is the life blood to our planet's skin with its flowers providing nectar to the pollinating insects vital to the complex health of the Amazon. If we discover a flowering plant growing abundantly along the edge of the forest's river, we become hypnotized by its design and character, prolific or singular, the flower is astounding.
When Rainforest is torn, either by the guides machete to clear the trail or when a tree crashes down by itself or ripped out by a tractor, a new edge is created. When the same forest is cleared, the first thing to leave are the indigenous butterflies as they dance into the light. They fly away from the torn edge of the forest and find no place to go. Not all butterflies can migrate.

My painting is called "Jungle Tangle". I am not a scientist, nor a botanist, I am a naturalist who paints life at the edge of a flower." - Jane Marshall


Jane Marshall, "Jungle Tangle", Oil on Canvas, (48"  x 48"). $7,500.

"The painting, with all its visceral colors bouncing and colliding into one another, up close it looks like turmoil and chaos... but when you step back you really can see the beauty in it all. This was a representation of how I was feeling at the time, in turmoil and  chaos, but when I stepped back and looked at it from a different perspective I could see the beauty in myself and everything that had happened ...and that everything happens for a reason... and I began to AWAKEN." - Dane Smith 


Dane Smith, "Awaken", Oil on Canvas, (36 x 96"). $3,200.

"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 process mirrors the effects of life experiences on an individual as they grow and evolve. Often early events and what lies beneath are not in view, yet essential to the individual’s identity. If one looks closely enough, traces of these earlier marks are discovered to bring about a wholeness. Such is the journey of the soul and the journey of the artwork.

I hope to make visible the invisible worlds that move, motivate and guide us as soulful beings. My deepest wish for the work is for it to make the viewer pause, even for the briefest of moments, to reflect on or connect with their deeper selves. To make visible to them something that has only ever been a feeling or a dream." - Sali Swalla

Sali Swalla, "Devotion", Mixed Media on Panel, (48" x 36"). $2,000.
