New series of exhibitions at AndrewShire Gallery presents the work of Skip Arnold and Doug Harvey
Skip Arnold, Self Portrait #2, Aug 2012 (after Messerschmidt): 28min video, B&W, sound. View vertical position. Edition 5. Activity is 1.5sec., and is the apex of my action. I stretched the action. My action dissolves into itself.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- The AndrewShire Gallery is presenting Take Five: Series 1, the first exhibition in the series features the work of Skip Arnold and Doug Harvey in a two-person show featuring paintings, drawings, photographs and video.

This series of two and three-person exhibitions feature Los Angeles-based artists and the improvisational interplay of their artworks. Although the exhibitions are not thematically based, there is an interesting exchange between each artist and their work in this five part series.

Arnold and Harvey, both veteran LA artists, show their work together for the first time. Although both artists have very divergent artistic approaches, there is an underlying subversiveness to both of their artistic practices.

Arnold presents work from his 2004 China project and a new video self-portrait inspired by 18th Century German-Austrian sculptor Franz Messerschmidt. Both works have never been exhibited before in Los Angeles and include video and photographic components.

Harvey includes two series of works for the exhibition. A large 5 x 18 foot painting: Joe's Temper (Vegas iteration), which is based on a 1930s comic strip ad for toilet paper. This piece is part of an ongoing series that is now well into its 3rd decade. The second series of works are photographs produced from a cache of appropriated moldy slides. The mold has actually devoured the emulsion on the slide leaving intricate organic abstractions.

This series of short exhibitions is an intense investigation of work by these established, mid-career and emerging artists. Through this concentrated grouping of shows, the AndrewShire Gallery has created a new artist dynamic for the gallery, which will soon be celebrating its 20th anniversary.

AndrewShire Gallery is dedicated to the development and exhibition of innovative contemporary art works by international and local talents. In addition to its Los Angeles location, the gallery established an alternative space in Singapore in 2006. AndrewShire continues to push the international envelope while remaining an integral part of the local community.
