RVCA - HERBIE FLETCHER ART SHOW-19

“Surfing to me is metaphysical yoga,” the surf icon-turned-art world fixture Herbie Fletcher said. “When you’re in big waves and you take a drop, you lose your mind. It’s being in the void. There’s no thought. It’s bliss for a moment. That’s the state of mind these paintings are in,” he said about the work on view in “Path of the Wave Warrior,” a massive exhibition of his paintings, collages and sculptures on view at Known Gallery on North Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, through Nov. 9.

HUFFINGTON POST | Street Artist Judith Supine And ‘Arrested Development’ Actress Alia Shawkat Team Up For Exhibition

Only in Los Angeles could a street artist and a television star team up for an art exhibition that is legitimately worth seeing.

The unlikely art show, called “Thanks For Nothing,” features miniatures and large scale paintings from street artist Judith Supine along with Alia Shawkat’s dark humored multimedia drawings. A biting electricity aligns the two disparate artists, whether a streak of neon in Supine’s tiny collages or a sarcastic commentary in Shawkat’s scrawled characters.

Supine’s series explores the hypnotic, even spiritual powers hidden in the banal aspects of contemporary American life. Supine, a street art scavenger who describes himself as “pastiche of lost and found,” combines sacred and profane aspects of American culture with little breathing room between. From cigarette boxes to lottery scratch cards, the weight of certain American staples becomes almost divine, if only for a short time, before the remains of are lost or discarded. Supine created over 80 miniature collages, using throwaway materials like dirty magazines and lotto tickets with grand ideas of race, sex and death.

The project space contains new work by Shawkat, a self-taught artist mostly known for her sense of humor onscreen. Shawkat’s caustic wit translates smoothly onto her frantically paced drawings, which combine acerbic squiggly narratives and flowing color washes. Harnessing universal human conditions of shame, rage and insecurity through bizarre and absurd channels, Shawkat proves that the more horrific a situation, the funnier it is.
