I was perusing Matthew Innis’s blog Underpaintings, and
noticed that the California Art Club’s annual exhibit was going on while I just
happened to be in LA. Seeing work in person by artists such as Joseph Paquet,
David Leffel, Mian Situ, and Calvin Liang was just too good to pass up, so I
moseyed on down to the USC campus to see the exhibit.
Really, really strong work. The internet is so bountiful in what we can see, it’s easy to forget just how much more impressive the work can be in person. Leffel’s work for example, is often poorly reproduced—it’s far more nuanced in person.
