Jessica Rath @ Ben Maltz (****) Surface detail is fascinating. Mixes sorrow at its stunted state with hope for its perseverance. #artLA

I went to @OCMA last week to see “Illumination”–mostly because I’d seen a few Florence Pierce pieces before and wanted to see more.

Here’s some images of Florence Pierce’s work: http://www.charlottejackson.com/artists/florence_pierce.htm

Illumination @OCMA (***) Paintings way too crowded & curatorial strings tying work together are pretty thin, but art worth seeing.

The Moving Image: Scan to Screen, Pixel to Projection @OCMA (***) I really cringe at a room full of TV sets. Also overcrowded.

In the museum setting I prefer video art that goes beyond the screen and truly uses the space of the gallery.

Otherwise I’d rather watch video art on my own screen in comfort.

I liked Shirley Shor’s “Landslide,” an animation of rapidly changing maps projected from overhead onto hilly white sand. http://www.thejewishmuseum.org/exhibitions/Landslide

Gary Lang @ Ace Gallery BH (****) Truly magical as they glow from a distance, especially after seeing how they’re painted close up. #artLA
