The Kopeikin Gallery presents it’s fourth solo exhibition by Seattle based photographer Chris Jordan. The exhibition “Running The Numbers… Again” follows up on a previous exhibition held at the Kopeikin Gallery in September 2007 when Jordan began the series. Since many images which define the series have been added since the first show this exhibition features all new material. The exhibition continues through October 17th 2009. Signed copies of Jordan’s new Monograph, “Running The Numbers,” will be available throughout the run of the show.
The Kopeikin Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles of artist Laura Ball who grew up in Southern California and graduated from U.C.Berkeley. The exhibition “Boundary of the Interior” opens with a reception with the artist on Saturday, September 12th from 6:00 – 9:00 and continues through October 17th. This event is free and open to the public.
Laura Ball’s work has always addressed real world battles and the ludic activities of play and competition. Ball’s work displays an epic struggle, suggestive of an archetypal rite of passage, but their dreamlike and surreal qualities are created from specific sources. Ball draws on memories from her visits to Disneyland and other southern California theme parks as a child, and from her recent travels to Greece and Germany to create the backdrops to her narratives. She also works from controlled situations in which she photographs her mother and three sisters acting out and posing to re-create the confrontation and drama found in her narrative works.
