The Los Angeles Art Association brings emerging and imaginative artists to The Beverly Hills artSHOW.

The Los Angeles Art Association, a featured gallery and arts partner to the event, presented an installation by multi-media artist Brandon Hudson, in and around a giant cypress tree near the center of the show.  Hexagons formed an abstract hive-like sculpture which also contained hexagonal snowflakes.  The machine-generated snowflake, like that seen in a non-functioning tv screen, was also an inspiration  for this work.  (Work appeared in Space 228 A - October 19 & 20, 2013)

The LAAA also exhibited the double-take objects of a superb craftswoman whose art begs the wonderful question: Why is the fine art we revere made of one thing instead of another?  She drops the viewer into a rabbit hole land where "an axe made of glass is as likely as a torso made of bronze."   To further quote Rachel Kaster, "I strive to make work that will lead the viewer to engage in a moment of fantasy, to imagine a world in which materials such as wood, glass and metal have unlimited potential."  (Work appeared in Space 224 A - October 19 & 20, 2013)

Kelly Berg shared a space with Rachel Kaster.  Art critic Shana Nys Dambrot has said Ms. Berg's work is as formidable as a hand-drawn continent; in other words, it's both sweeping and detailed, effectively mind-blowing.  The work appears fairly abstract, but Ms. Berg states that "the paintings are actually built out of many layers of pictorial and abstract imagery.  This imagery includes natural phenomena, ancient ruins, faces, optical patterns, circuitry, cityscapes, rock formations, vegetation, animals, and natural disasters."
