April 22, 2015: Los Angeles-based artist Shana Mabari will have work featured in Project Gallery at FP Contemporary in Culver City as part of an exhibition opening this Saturday, April 25. FP will show both two- and three-dimensional pieces, including Cubesculptures and nine different archival pigment prints, among them ones from Mabari’sIllumetric series. The sculptures are 17 x 17 x 15 inches, and the limited edition prints are 24 x 24 inches. FP Contemporary’s opening, taking place from 6-8PM, also includes a solo exhibition by Dirk DeBruycker (5835 Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232), and marks the first time Mabari has shown with the gallery.
“I am delighted to be exhibiting work with FP Contemporary,” says Mabari. “I applaud Paul Dahmen’s vision for the gallery. It’s very exciting to be part of it and to be alongside the exceptional artists that they represent.”
Also upcoming in 2015 for Mabari, MOAH (Museum of Art & History) in Lancaster will show several new light-based acrylic sculptures as part of the museum’s year-end multi-artist exhibition “Vanity,” which opens Saturday, December 5, 4:00-6:00PM. The illuminated pieces will be installed on the building’s scenic rooftop terrace. “I’m thrilled that MOAH’s Museum Manager and Curator Andi Campognone invited me to show in December,” says Mabari. “MOAH is leading the Antelope Valley’s emergence as an arts scene, and I’m so happy to be involved.”
ILLUMETRIC, Mabari’s triptych of monumental illuminated diamond-, cube-, and rectangle shaped acrylic sculptures on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, CA, has been granted an extended run through the end of 2015. Originally presented by the City of West Hollywood and its Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission as part of the “Art On The Outside” public art program, ILLUMETRIC was installed in summer 2014. Mabariconsulted with legendary Southern California fabricator Jack Brogan on fabrication and design for the project. It has become a dynamic landmark in the streetscape and architecture of West Hollywood’s well trafficked Holloway Triangle area.
Throughout, Mabari’s work explores the intersections of art, science and technology. Her installations, environments, sculptures, and two-dimensional pieces investigate ways in which worldly stimuli and phenomena are absorbed and processed through sensory and visual perception. She orchestrates light, reflection, color contrast, and geometry to play with and expand the reality and experience of physical space.
