Estevan Oriol | LA Portraits video

December 17 2013 . 12:10pm

“LA Portraits” is the new compelling installment of Oriol’s work to date. Real L.A. street life the public has ever witnessed, from the lens of its originator Estevan Oriol. Dealing with sensitive environments and highly guarded subjects, Oriol has earned the trust and respect of the streets at all levels – from taking images on set of Hollwood’s A list, to the most reclusive hoods in Los Angeles and all over the world.

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.
