For their inaugural exhibition, Lowell Ryan Projects presents artists Samuel Jablon, Spencer Lewis and Maysha Mohamedi in a group how titled Mind Body Soul. Each using the medium of paint, the artists create works that are deeply personal, and cross lines between reality and imagination, touching themes of spatiality, language, and the poetic nature of the city.
Maysha Mohamedi is an L.A. based artist whose work is greatly informed by Farsi calligraphy of her ancestral home, Iran. Using tar from beaches and found objects to mark her canvas, Mohamedi uses the objects to create a deeply personal, yet universal story of her interactions with the world around her.
Samuel Jablon is a New York based artist who creates “poem-paintings” by gathering and editing source text from around the city, and adding thickly applied paint. The art creates a feeling of internconnection between words and physical art.
Spencer Lewis is an L.A. based artist who specializes in working on jute and cardboard. Beginning with a spray-painted render, Lewis creates works that defy 2 dimensional boundaries often associated with paint.
Lowell Ryan Projects will be donating 10 percent of the gallery’s proceeds from the exhibition to the Los Angeles Fire Foundation.
An opening ceremony will be held Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 6 to 9 p.m.
