Devon Tsuno: California Seedlings
August 13, 2018 – May 31, 2019
Reception: Saturday, August 18th, 4:00 - 6:00pm
Artist Talk: Tuesday, September 25th, at 2:30pm
Devon Tsuno’s recent abstract paintings, social practice projects, artist books, and outdoor installations focus on the LA watershed, water use, and native vs. non-native vegetation. Influenced by Japanese, 19th century Ukiyo-e woodblock prints and fabric, his vibrant, densely layered works are inspired by the vigorous and dynamic flora competing for space in our urban environment. With California Seedlings, the Art Gallery takes contemporary art outside, using the gallery itself as a canvas. Unlike traditional murals, this one won’t be painted directly on the wall, but will use a graphic film wrap to temporarily transform the building’s face and activate the public space around the Art Gallery.
