The fine line between chaos and order reign in this week’s gallery picks.
* * *
1. Pavilion of the Blind is a freestanding structure that contains a colorful array of window blinds, panels and shades. Movement is triggered by a motion detector and controlled by a PLC (programmable logic controller) housed within the structure at Tierney Gardarin
2. Charline von Heyl’s paintings are not abstractions of objects or figures; rather, she is interested in creating abstract images that stand for themselves at Petzel
3. By physically and metaphorically cutting and bringing together disparate items and ideas in her paintings, drawings, and sculptures, Iva Gueorguieva’s works can be seen as assemblages of chaos and order, personal concerns and global issues at Acme Los Angeles
4. Growing up in Spain, with the hybridized eclectic sensibilities of Antoni Gaudi as a visual force in her early life, led to the collision in Susan Chrysler White’s work of nature, spiritual tendencies, and 3D form. The exploration of light, space, transparency, bilateral symmetry, and calligraphic drawing all play a part in her recent sculpture at Kim Foster Gallery
5. Omar Chacon’s most recent body of work continues to be influenced by the intricate patterns and weavings mirrored in the traditional folk art of South America at Fouladi Projects
6. Rosemarie Fiore uses the brightly colored smoke of live fireworks to create vibrant and bold abstract compositions. In this new body of work, Fiore introduces the use of rolling devices of her own creation to distribute the tinted smoke onto heavy paper.at Von Lintel Gallery
