Revelations

Her controversial images were first introduced in a big way to the art world by Paul Kopeikin.

And now he is presenting another show of new artists’ to the world:

3 x 5
Three images each by five emerging artists
January 6 – February 3, 2007

One of them, Amy Stein, I am familiar with through articles describing her process, Can’t wait to see the images in all of their glory. And check out her site. Very cool blog.

The Trash Eaters
2005

Amy Stein’s photographic series “Domesticated” explores our paradoxical relationship with the “wild.” We at once seek connection with the mystery and freedom of the natural world, yet we continuously tame the wild around us and compulsively control the wild within our own nature. Within her work primal issues of comfort and fear, dependence and determination, submission and dominance play out in images of direct and hidden confrontations between humans and animals. The narratives are set in and around Matamoras, a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania, which borders a state forest.

From the site:
LOS ANGELES, CA. The Paul Kopeikin Gallery is proud to present “3 x 5”, a group exhibition of five young artists showing three works each. This exhibition opens Saturday January 6 and runs through February 3, 2007. A reception with the artists will take place on Saturday, January 6, 2007 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The reception is free and open to the public. The gallery is located at 6150 Wilshire Boulevard, just west of Fairfax. For information call (323) 937-0765 or visit their website .

These five artists are four photographers, Matthew Jordan, Lisa Robinson, Andrew Miksys and Amy Stein as well as ceramic artist Dana Weiser .

Maybe we’ll see you there.
