Four Shows at Gabba Gallery February 10 – March 3, 2018
Opening Reception: February 10th 7-11pm
Gabba Gallery is proud to present four simultaneous solo exhibitions by RLFKE, Donna Bates, Corban Lundborg, and Em Wafer. Curated by Jason Ostro and Elena Jacobson.
The notoriously elusive Toronto native RLFKE plants his flag on the LA art scene with his fearless debut US solo show, Scoop. The anonymous contemporary artist challenges the narratives of both tradition and modernity with bold, colorful pieces oozing with his signature street style.
Native Californian Donna Bates delivers a stunning collection of oil paintings in her new exhibition, Courageous Beauty. The self-taught artist specializes in capturing the essence of strong, independent, sexy, powerful, women, or Bad-ass Chicks as she prefers to call them. Her most recent series, “War Paint and Curlers” speaks to women’s rights, struggles and part in the human condition.
Living between two contrasting worlds has become routine for Corban Lundborg. The artist has a creative career flourishing in Hollywood while maintaining a demanding role in a military combat camera squadron in Charleston, South Carolina. Inspired by this experience, the paintings in his latest show, Half & Half, focus on bestriding cultures.
New Zealand painter Em Wafer returns to Gabba Gallery with a new collection of work titled Reality Shift. Her dreamy canvases transport the viewer to soothing and delicious alternate realities where simple delights like palm trees, bubbles, and sunsets dominate.
All four shows open February 10 and will be on view through March 3. The opening night reception takes place Saturday, February 10 from 7-11pm. The event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. DJ Jonathan Williams spinning. Bar sponsored by Humboldt Distillery. Free parking behind 3125 Beverly Blvd. (enter off Dillon). Gabba Gallery is located at 3126 Beverly Blvd.
