tinlark gallery anniversary- 01.19.08
Tonight i was at the Crossroads of the World. And it was surreal. It’s on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood… google tells me that it is “L.A.’s first modern shopping mall”, built in 1936, and there is a replica of it at Walt Disney World Disney MGM Studios at the entrance of their faux Hollywood Blvd… additionally, the Tinlark gallery happens to live there, so i stopped by to check out their first year anniversary show, and it was incredible… honestly getting to see the Brooks Salzwedel pieces up close were well worth the trip (see the post dedicated to his solo show “By Fault of Its Own” here!)… seeing Diem Chau’s Crayons in person finally (I’ve updated the 2006 post with pictures from this show!) was so cool, and Yaya Chou’s Gummi Bear Rug looked strangely enticing (see a post dedicated to this and her other works). They really are as amazingly intricate as they look in the pics, if not more so. BUT, for this post ~ you need to see the Crossroads of the World and the placement of the gallery… the neon sign is classic.
