Arrested Motion just posted their in-depth interview with emerging Canadian artistJacub Gagnon as he prepares to make the trip down to LA for his big ‘Elements and Oddities‘ show which opens this Saturday alongside new works from Japan’s Yosuke Ueno.
“I feel as though there is more to life than we know and this will always be so. I think there are connections and streams of consciousness tying us together in unimaginable ways. In my paintings I try to make these ‘unlikely’ connections, the unimaginable, imaginable, bringing what might seem like unconnected or unlikely paths of life together under a new light.”– Jacub Gagnon

This is gonna be one amazing art happening with costumed Baseman characters, masks, music, dancing, lanterns & banners from Thailand, carnival lights, hula hoops on fire… everything you’ve heard about and more…. and this is just the outdoor festival taking up the entire parking lot next to Corey Helford.
Inside the gallery, Gary’s newest works and an amazing installation with participation from artists from around the world will be on view.

Schorr’s astonishing, highly polished realism, (inspired by Bosch, Brueghel and Dali), sets him apart from his best-known peers such as Camille Rose Garcia, Gary Baseman, and Mark Ryden. This is his first solo show in many years, and we couldn’t be more amped to see the new works in person this Saturday.
