Exhibitions

Danny Fuller | Liquid Horizon

On August 11th Venus Over Los Angeles presented an Exhibition of new works by RVCA Advocate Danny Fuller titled "Liquid Horizon".

For the past 15 years Fuller has also pursued a passion for photography, documenting the seascapes he has encountered while travelling the globe. Relying on little aside from his medium format camera and the lunar calendar, Fuller often works at night, using the moonlight to capture the rich gradations of color and harmonious lines generated by the ocean vistas. Shot with an exposure time ranging from a few minutes up to an hour, Fuller’s images both convey and encapsulate the continuous motion of waves and sky, incorporating them into a single visual entity.

Fuller’s photography communicates his physical relationship with the water as well as his spiritual tie to the sport of surfing to which he has dedicated his life. Influenced by artists such as William Turner, Mark Rothko, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, he captures the horizon as both a participant and an observer.

Orange Sunshine and the Mystic Artists

From July 27 to September 26, 2015, Coastline Art Gallery at Coastline Community College in Newport Beach presents Orange Sunshine and the Mystic Artists, 1967-1970. This groundbreaking exhibition is the first to examine psychedelic art produced in Orange County by the Mystic Artists, a loosely organized group of artists interested in alternative culture, mystical experience, and the transformation of society. These artists congregated and exhibited their art at Mystic Arts World, a psychedelic emporium in Laguna Beach, which existed from 1967 to 1970. The shop was ground zero for hippie culture in Southern California during the late 1960s and early 1970s, and rich artistic and perceptual experimentation grew out of this burgeoning psychedelic culture. Here are photos from the opening night by Delon Issacs.

Trent Whitehead | The Rest Is In You

Trent Whitehead’s recent solo exhibition ‘ The Rest Is In You’ consists of his meticulously detailed smaller works and his larger psychedelic patterned paintings. The title of the exhibition is more of an open question, allowing the viewer to perceive the works without a force fed message, or in the hope it gives them comfort of not knowing if these mysterious beings and their luminescent environment are from the past, future or another dimension. Here are photos of his opening at the RVCA Corner Gallery in Australia on April 10th.
