Opening night of ‘RAIZ’ at the Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale, California this past Saturday. What a night! One for the books, to say the very least. Well over 1,500 art loving Angelinos flowed through the halls of the prestigious institution over the course of the evening.
Many, many thanks to all of the exhibiting artists, the live painters and artisan vendors, the incredible food booths, our incredible bartender team, all the staff and security at the Brand, and all of you that came out to share your love and support. It was a MAGICAL evening and we didn’t want it to end.
‘DARK MATTER’ explores the invisible forces behind the decisions we make and the narratives we create. The dark matter hypothesis proposes that 85% of all matter in the universe is unseen. Astronomers have observed that galaxies seemingly do not have enough mass to account for the gravitational forces needed to hold them together in clusters. However, there is evidence of a nearly undetectable, or “dark”, matter that generates binding forces in the universe while remaining a complete mystery.
In this body of work, Giorgiko plays with the idea that a significant percentage of our lives may be made of a different “dark matter” — one of untold stories, hidden agendas, and powerful feelings — which plays an equally significant force on our lives and our relationships with others. With so much unknown, what is perceived with the senses may only reveal a part of the story. Through this exhibition, we invite viewers to consider what we really know, what we don’t, and the mystery that holds us all together when, theoretically, we should be flying apart.
For this exhibition, Sentrock presents a new signature mural in the galleries as well as animated video projections, a ten-foot-tall sculpture, a life-size birdhouse installation, paintings, and works on paper that reveal narratives about the Bird City Saint character, and its origins in the artist’s biography. The exhibition, across numerous galleries, will explore the dreams of a little boy living in an urban environment, the importance of his Mexican-American community, and why the boy has a bird mask.
We’re holding an IG auction here to allow one lucky fan the chance to own this original canvas created by @allisonbamcat in our new courtyard this past October 29th during the opening of our late October exhibitions.
