We are digging this dark and mysterious image from Brand 49 artist John Calabrese called "The Pilgrimage – Take to the Sky, Supernatural High" created from graphite pencil on paper.

As the artist writes, "Delicate nuance of value and texture become tools in conveying powerful dramatic statements about earthly beings who are not afraid to wonder, think, dream, and take that one step beyond. The inhabitants of the cosmic atmosphere appear at odds with their surroundings, many of which are actual specifically named astronomical objects."

See this work and many others in person until October 29th at the Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale, or view it online here: https://www.brandlibrary.art/post/brand-49.

10/21/2021

"Change is the only constant," a quote attributed to Greek philosopher Heraclitus, is an idea fervently embraced by artist Alex Carroll, and given form in his artworks, one of which, the charcoal/pastel drawing, "Portrait of Yiqian, In Flux," is part of our Brand 49 exhibition.

As Carroll puts it, "Movement, understood as any kind of change, is the universal cause of all things. My subjects are an embodiment of this phenomenon. They are strangers that I pass on the street and people whose stories I have come to know. Their portraits, blurred and distorted by the superimposition of fleeting moments, depict versions of themselves caught between physical and transcendental realms. Drawn large scale and wraithlike in appearance, the distorted figures become an invitation to apprehend our collective state - the state of being in constant motion."

This piece and more than 120 others are on view until October 29 at @BrandLibrary. You can also view this and the rest of the exhibit any time online: https://www.brandlibrary.art/post/brand-49

Loving this sassy and fantastical piece titled "Aries" from Sarah Buzzard (S. Buzzard @sbuzzardillustration), which brings together threads of anime, pop culture, and mythology in a gorgeous illustration created from ink, pen, and colored pencil.

As the artist writes, "I find inspiration from artists Audrey Kawasaki, loish (Lois van Baarle), Justin Gerard and Ilya Kuvshinov. My work is influenced by Japanese and American animation, pop culture and literature. My traditional illustrations center on portraiture and the figure by developing unique facial expressions and body language. I incorporate my subject’s likeness and enjoy playing with negative space and character design. I let the ex*****on and style of my art blur the line between illustration and fine art."

See this work and many others in person until October 29th at the Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale, or view it online here: https://www.brandlibrary.art/post/brand-49.

We were knocked out when Lorraine Bubar dropped off her piece, titled "Tsunami," a few weeks before the show opened. First, it's large (41" x 30"), it's intricate, and the work is created from paper exclusively.

It's a piece you should see in person, which you can do until October 29 at @BrandLibrary. You can also view this and the rest of the exhibit any time online: https://www.brandlibrary.art/post/brand-49

The medium, papercutting, is impressive and the message is as well. Lorraine writes: "My work, cut from layers of colored paper, illustrates the instability of the world’s natural environments and the instability of home for people and animals. Current scenes include the impact of population growth and new construction transforming Los Angeles, tent cities and over development filling empty spaces. The intricate laceworks of layered papers illustrate both the fragility and strength of the paper medium, as well as the fragility and strength of these environments."

Loving this flowing and cooling etching from artist Megan Broughton (@meganbroughtonartist) titled, appropriately, "Recherchebreen Glacial Lagoon." The artist created these works after being in residence up in the Arctic Circle, and seeing firsthand the shattering impacts of global warming and melting sea ice on the fragile global ecosystem.

The artist writes, "The Recherchebreen Series was created by pouring ferric chloride over melting ice cubes atop a copperplate and is in honor of a lagoon formed by the dramatic retreat of the Recherchebreen glacier. In the second half of the series, the plates were extensively etched so that the original image is lost or obscured. As with the real land and seascapes, they are destroyed by direct engagement with the human hand."

Ada Pullini Brown's piece in Brand 49 is a powerful statement on an exceptional -- as in out-of-the-ordinary -- year, 2020. As she describes it, "This work was made during 2020, an intense year like no other. The stay at home order was both isolating and an opportunity to spend more time in the studio enabling me to experiment with materials. And as the world fought the pandemic our solitude was jolted by the social and political unrest around us. Rise Up is a reaction to the murder of George Floyd and so many other Black and Brown people. The counting in the background is by 5’s, as the fingers on an open hand or a closed fist."
For another two weeks you can view this work and more than 120 more in person, in the Works on Paper exhibit at @BrandLibrary. You can also view the works any time online: https://www.brandlibrary.art/post/brand-49

"We're excited to share this elegant piece by artist Rachel Branham (@spookyooky_art ), an intimate and entangled study of form and positive and negative shapes. This piece is created from pen and ink on paper, and is titled "Hold On."

The artist writes about her work: "The meditative application of ink through a static and unchanging pen creates an interesting dichotomy with the fluidity of the drooping, dripping chain forms. The forms overlap, tangle, and separate- and that’s a metaphor for life if ever I’ve heard one, right?"

Today we share the work of an artist, Yun Gee Bradley, whose relationship with paper forms the basis for her artistic explorations. The line that greets you on her web site says, "Paper is my brush."

She elaborates: "I know it sounds strange, but I have fallen in love with hanji Korean paper. When I work with hanji I become intimate with the paper so much that I know its temperament and it tells me which way is best to shape and lay it on or tells me what it does not like. It is soft, but also quite tough, both characteristics that I love about my friends. I use tweezers to pull each strand of paper to create a line or shape little by little and watching it take shape is very meditative. I have never felt this much joy when working with paper. I continue making hanji art to discover more about hanji, and hope to will have this love affair for a long, long time."

In this context, Yun Gee Bradley's portrait, "Unsung Series 1," is a wonderful entry in Brand 49, our Works on Paper exhibit. You can see the work at the @BrandLibrary until October 29. And, any time, you can see it and more than 120 other great pieces online: https://www.brandlibrary.art/post/brand-49

Enjoy a dimensional Sunday with this sumptuous piece by Brand 49 artist David Blow entitled, appropriately, "The Opening."

The artist writes of his digitally manipulated work, "During our time in isolation, we are experiencing the vibrations of the earth and the healing effect our isolation has on nature. At the subatomic level the universe is insubstantial, just vibrations, like a violin string; quarks, electrons, and the rest are like notes on a string. The colored squares and fractals represent the vibrations and colors found in the image itself."

Full-house at the roundtable discussion and closing party for One Year exhibition, Brand Art Center Jan. 7, 2018
new dance coming to you soon at the beautiful Brand!
"The Brand Associates’ Dance Series" presents three performances this spring at Brand Library & Art Center, 1601 W. Mountain St., Glendale, CA 91201. This series presents dance companies from Southern California performing site specific work in non-traditional performance spaces around Brand Library. Audiences will move through the venue and select their own vantage points from which to view the dancers. These interactive events will be followed by a reception and an opportunity to meet the artists. Get ready for a new dance experience at Brand Library! The performances are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. An accessible entrance and parking is located on the East side of the building. • Invertigo Dance Theatre - Saturday, May 20 1:30pm • Szalt - Friday, May 26 7:00pm • Viver Brasil - Saturday, June 24 1:30pm INVERTIGO DANCE THEATRE builds connection and community through dance. Enter a world of magical realism with a fun, beautiful and whimsical performance and interactive workshop. This performance will feature “Ascending Spring” choreographed by company member Sadie Yarrington, a work that conjures up a world that pours with rain, takes flight and bursts into bloom. Saturday, May 20 1:30pm SZALT is a collective community of Los Angeles movers, musicians and visual artists. In “Water Stories” Amabelle Aguiluz (textiles and wearable art), Stephanie Zaletel (choreographer) and Louis Lopez (original score) recount significant water experiences and encounters in an effort to link our shared psychologies. This highly physical, immersive, and stimulating performance triggers viewers’ collective streams of consciousness and invites us to feel connected to a fleeting and vital resource. Friday, May 26 7:00pm VIVER BRASIL under the artistic direction of Linda Yudin and Luiz Badaro captivates audiences with irresistible physicality, power and passion. The company of dancers, musicians and singers, pays tribute to ancestry, processionals, memory and the power of joy in movement rooted in and inspired by the rich history of Afro-Brazilian dance and music. Creative soundscapes, enticing sambas and riveting capoeira will bring audiences to their feet! Saturday, June 24 1:30pm
