Release: Nathan Ota “Ikiru”

NATHAN OTA: IKIRU is a full overview of Ota’s work from his early street art to illustrations and gallery pieces to recent collaborations with the street artist RISK. Ota has gained a following over the last twenty years for his prolific work in a variety of expressions and media. The surrealist world he creates is one of streaked green skies, off-color hues and dripping paint a world reliant on recurring figures such as a blind bird in a striped dunce hat, a gelatinous robot lost in the woods, and an egg sprouting up protruding tree branches. Dark and engaging, this is a world of struggle that continues to clash and commune within each new painting.

Nathan Ota combines his early influences of vintage comic books, punk rock fliers and his graffiti-obsessed high school years with formal training at the Art Center College of Design to create technically adept pieces with a pop culture aesthetic reminiscent of Tim Burton. Ota is a member of the Society of Illustrators and has created illustrations for the Los Angeles Times, Communication Arts, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, LA Weekly, LA CityBeat, Writers Guild of America, and Capital Records.

Accompanied with text from author, publisher and childhood friend, Chiwan Choi.

Chiaroscuro: Installation by Sougwen Chung

Chiaroscuro is a culmination of contrasts; the interplay of light and dark, the tangible and intangible, the old and new. The installation is a contemporary interpretation of “Chiaroscuro”, a term more commonly associated with 17th century painting, that is as hand-made as it is digitally enabled.

Drawing in the installation is the fundamental element — spanning the physical structure, the light-mapping and the projection itself. By digitizing the drawing, the simple expression of mark-making becomes transmutable. It is reinterpreted to take on a new form and dimension in the software — it transforms into structures manipulatable through time.

If drawing is an analogy for basic human expression, Chiaroscuro is an immersive installation that augments the drawn image in scale, sound, and scope by harnessing the imaginative potential of interdisciplinary processes and technologies.

Audio-Visual Installation Art by Bruno Levy

• Crystals ver I //

Crystals is an audio-visual collaboration between multi-disciplinary artist Bruno Levy and DJ/composer Kate Simko.

Using stop motion photography, Bruno Levy captured various types of crystals growing under a microscope. As the evaporation process occurred, a wide variety of patterns and shapes were formed, creating an organic, yet otherworldly landscape. The compiled images are reminiscent of space and the creation of matter; as the video progresses the geometry of the crystals becomes increasingly complex. Shimmering floating particles transform into glowing geometric shapes that develop into complex galactic formations, taking us on a journey of growth and evolution.

All orchestral instruments in Crystals were recorded live and combined with the electronic music elements.

• 25-60 HZ //

Multi Channel audio visual installation.

Based experiment in cymatics; the study of visible sound and vibration, this audio visual installation shows water reacting to sound vibration. Water, ink and milk were place in a circular dish on top a subwoofer. Different visual patterns of light reflecting off the surface of the water were seen to form. These patterns changed with variations in wave forms played between a frequency range of 25-60 Hz hertz.The patterns created were dependent on the geometry of the receptacle.
