It’s the last week to see the group exhibition Unreachable Spring at Luis De Jesus Los Angeles, a thoughtfully done show about work produced during the pandemic months. Laura Krifka’s painting of a woman looking out her kitchen window, yearning and curious, inspired the show’s title. “I was thinking a lot about longing, feeling cut off from the world, and also the way everyone was watching each other from afar with a sort of insatiable desire to report wrongdoing,” Krifka writes in a placard hung next to her painting.
Each artwork in Unreachable Spring is paired with the artist’s reflections on how their practice has responded to the crises we’ve been living through. “The death of George Floyd hit me like a hammer; the view of him dying in front of my eyes meant I was not in isolation,” Peter Williams shares, who painted a stunning and devastating triptych for Floyd.
The show also features work by June Edmonds, André Hemer, Kambui Olujimi, and Edra Soto. This Saturday, December 19, all six participating artists will be talking about “making art during a year unlike any other” in a Zoom conversation moderated by Luis De Jesus and Lindsay Preston Zappas, editor-in-chief of CARLA. While we sorely miss in-person events, remote talks like this one make it easier for all artists to participate, so don’t miss this rare occasion.
When: Saturday, December 19, 1pm (PST)
