BRUCE RICHARDS: FUTURE / PAST
PAINTINGS & SCULPTURE
Opens September 20, 2014 at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles
A much anticipated exhibition of paintings and sculpture by artist Bruce Richards will be presented at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles. The exhibition, Bruce Richards: Future/Past opens with a preview reception on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 6 to 9 p.m., with the artist in attendance.
Bruce Richards, now residing in New York, has long been associated with the Los Angeles contemporary art scene, emerging from the University of California Irvine (UCI) in the early 1970s; a significant period when other artists associated with UCI included Robert Irwin, Vija Celmins, David Hockney, Chris Burden, Alexis Smith, Larry Bell, Peter Alexander, Tony DeLap, Ed Moses, Craig Kauffman, James Turrell, etc. Richards was part of the Getty-sponsored Pacific Standard Time exhibition, "Best Kept Secret" underscoring this important period in the art of Southern California.
The Rutberg Gallery exhibition Bruce Richards: Future/Past offers a full view of Bruce Richard’s works spanning several decades. His paintings - frequently in dialogue with related polychromed bronze sculptures - are created with meticulous clarity, taking on an otherworldly luminosity that catapults them into the surreal. While cited as having some resonance with the works of Rene Magritte who juxtaposed objects from ordinary life into fantastical compositions, in contrast, Richards employs a more singular focus on one or two objects, suspending them in a timeless space – a burning tire or match, a leaf, a twining snake, a coin etc. – to layer references to history, mythology, art, and personal experience and emotions. These layers impart enormous symbolic and conceptual weight to seemingly ordinary objects. His works can be both referential and ironic by contrasting art of the past and present, such as his play between a famous Magritte torso and Marina Abramovic's infamous performance where she carved a pentagram onto her belly. In another example he juxtaposes the prehistoric depiction of woman, The Venus of Willendorf, with a work by Jeff Koons. Bruce Richard's visual sleight-of-hand further informs the viewer through his use of titles. Puns and provocative word play provide witty clues to the artist’s frame of reference, sharing a certain sly kinship with another of L.A.’s Cool School icons, Ed Ruscha.
Richards states, "My aim is to engage the viewer in both the title's verbal association and its visual analogy." The late critic and poet, Donald Carroll cited: "These are not images that simply hang on the wall; they hang in the mind as well - agents provocateurs, teasing us, daring us to light the fuse that will set off a chain reaction of associative thought that lies behind - and beyond - these captured, isolated...representatives of the world we think we know...Bruce Richard's images are revealed as unexpected illustrations of who we are and what we think and, above all, how we think."
The exhibition, Bruce Richards: Future/Past extends from September 20, through November 29, 2014. Jack Rutberg Fine Arts is located at 357 N. La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles, one block north of Beverly Boulevard. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 10 AM to 6 PM, and Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM.

We kick-start our 14-15 season with a pre-concert party for audience members followed by a performance with Bobby McFerrin whose infectious sounds defy easy categorization. The 10-time Grammy winner who gave us the feel-good hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” continues to explore uncharted musical territory with his latest album Spirityouall, a far-reaching collection of jazz, rock, and blues-inspired spirituals. From his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma and Chick Corea, to conducting projects with the Vienna and New York Philharmonics, McFerrin is a restless seeker who—happily—takes us along for the ride.

Two boundary-defying instrumentalist-composers—bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile—form one extraordinary duo and create one not-to-be-missed evening of glorious music in Royce Hall. These two MacArthur Fellows celebrate the much-anticipated September 9 release of their second album of original compositions titled Bass & Mandolin. The duo has been performing live together since 2003 and in 2008 released their first album Edgar Meyer & Chris Thile. They also collaborated on the critically acclaimed and Grammy-winning project the Goat Rodeo Sessions.
Thile says, “We have grown a lot as a collaborative entity between our first recording and now, at least partially due to our work together on The Goat Rodeo Sessions collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma and Stuart Duncan. As collaborators, we’ve found a warmer voice to share.” Meyer adds, “Chris is comfortable with all kinds of improvising, with lots of different musical feelings and rhythmic feelings. With him I can do anything I want. I can just be a bass player or I can play the melody. There are not many people with whom I have so much common ground. We can get to the bottom of things very quickly.”
