Virginia Martinsen and Mike Weiss transformed a former carniceria into a bright, welcoming space. The gallery is committed to debuting compelling work by artists at all levels in their careers, through a contemporary art program that highlights idea- driven, but also highly material art practices. Lowell Ryan Projects is devoted to artists who are exploring new narratives in their work with sincere investigations that often cross disciplinary boundaries. Lowell Ryan Projects.

When asked about the exhibit Schipani expressed: “They Laughed With Pleasure is inspired by the diaries of a gay trans male writer named Lou Sullivan called We Both Laughed In Pleasure. I will never forget the first time I read his work, I felt seen, validated and alive.” The exhibit touches upon Lou Sullivan’s message that there is a major lack of trans role models out there, and Schipani believes as queer artists it’s important to tell the stories of our community.

Stories from the past, present, and envision a brighter future. This is Schipani’s first solo exhibit with Lowell Ryan Projects, and the exhibit includes four new large-scale murals, acrylic paintings on canvas, and layered work on sheets of plexiglass.

Art Fair: Zona Maco 2020 – solo presentation Nour El Saleh

Influenced by Lillian Craton’s book The Victorian Freak Show, regarding the contextual weight physical states have on perception, and an interest in physiognomy and its manipulation, Nour El Saleh creates fantastical images informed by her upbringing and cultural experiences. El Saleh’s dream-like works explore notions of place, belonging and selective/relative memory. El Saleh was born in Lebanon in 1997, where she feels a sense of social amnesia acts as a behavioral default due to its history, and raised in the United Arab Emirates, a host for impermanent residents.

John Millei This & ThatJanuary 11 - February 22, 2020 Lowell Ryan Projects, Los Angeles Written by Eve Wood John Millei has had a long and illustrious career as a quintessential Los Angeles based artist.

John Millei in Art and Cake

Over the years his work has been described as “anthropomorphic abstraction,” and with his most recent solo exhibition, the first in over ten years, at Lowell Ryan Projects in Mid City, Millei turns his attention away from more familiar themes of women sitting in chairs, their faces contorted into undulating shapes and swathes of glorious color, to focus more precisely on the intimate gesture.

Millei’s earlier works appear to be direct antecedents of Pablo Picasso and Willem de Kooning, both of whom brutally abstracted the features of their respective women, and while these new images also take the human form as their main focus, Millei’s approach has softened, perhaps because these are paintings based upon images of his own young children.

By: Essence Harden Alexandra Grant’s solo exhibition “Born to Love” at Lowell Ryan Projects is the latest in her ongoing series that considers the moral integrity in Sophocles’ play Antigone.

The title, taken from Antigone’s statement “I was born to love not to hate,” made to her uncle Creon in response to her defiance for her slain brother — in feeling and ceremonial action — is abstracted, bifurcated and mirrored as an object amongst a field of jutting angles, immersive gestures and swells of color. Grant pivots Antigone’s ethics of care through densely collaged painting on paper.

LOWELL RYAN PROJECTS - Press: LA Weekly. Alexandra Grant by Manfredi Gioacchini Alexandra Grant is a visual artist with an interdisciplinary love of language, specifically the written word. Across paintings, sculpture, photography, installations, and publishing, she evinces a painter’s love of text and an author’s love of images. Known to many for her 2008 Love House project and its subsequent image, object, and design manifestations, and currently enjoying acclaim for lauded titles by a range of artists and writers released on her X Artists’ Books imprint (a partnership with Keanu Reeves), Grant shows a new series of large-scale, intensely textured and prismatically colored mixed media paintings based on the story of Antigone at Lowell Ryan Projects in West Adams on June 1st.L.A.
