Quam Odunsi’s The Reagents
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 10, 7-10 pm

Design Matters is proud to present “The Reagents” by Quam Odunsi. Due to the immense success of his first show at Design Matters in April 2012,  “Anachronistic Capture: Motion & Stills”, Quam will be returning this October for his second solo show with the gallery.

Quam Odunsi is a Los Angeles based artist who depicts the city as clean, obscure and candid. His vintage photography, collage, silkscreen, painting and sculpture engender nostalgia while simultaneously remaining contemporary. The anachronistic nature of his images leads to interesting, raw photography. He has become renowned in the Los Angeles area for his images of celebrities and pop culture under the pseudonym Reserve Result.

In “The Reagents,” Quam depicts a series of works in which he takes on the character of a government surveillance official who becomes increasingly absorbed by citizens and their private lives. Quam’s 35mm, 120mm, and Polaroid film images contain surveillances of the lives of others. His artwork takes the form of many mediums; silkscreen, painting, sculpture, and film on archival paper and canvas.

The opening reception for “The Reagents” will take place Thursday, October 10 at Design Matters Gallery from 7-10. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through Tuesday, October 29, 2013.

In Anachronistic Capture: Motion & Stills, the Los Angeles-based artist uses vintage cameras and equipment to create motion and stills on celluloid, recording and documenting contemporary subjects with his analog tools from a technological past. Using the city of Los Angeles and its inhabitants as his main setting, he constructs scenes and records the environment as cinematic content on 35mm, Polaroid and Super 8mm film.
