VNA veterans, Hyland Mather issue 33 (@thelostobject) and Mando Marie issue 21 (@seeyouthroughit) are having their two person collaborative exhibition, ‘This Is Why I’m Such A Mess’ at CAVE Gallery in Venice, CA opening this Saturday June 10th 6-10pm, left coast time.
The pair has made a 9 piece series of what they call ‘flipsides’ paintings. These double sided paintings have a choice illustrative piece from Mando on one side, and a minimal geometric ‘shapepile’ painting from Hyland on the other side. In Mando’s words, ‘You can quickly flipside switcheroo whichever side you want facing the world for a change of vibe. ‘ Nice.
Some good new solo work from each is in the show as well. Mando brings a new group of her vintage book cover paintings.
Hyland has new ‘lostobject’ series of Cali Beaches adding, ‘These pieces are a simple homage to the many trips had along the Cali coast, not only our trips, but just the many many trips.’
If you’re in LA, go visit the show. CAVE gallery recently moved…even closer to the beach now. 55 North Venice Blvd 90291
Should be a good party, the second space at the gallery is featuring ‘Still Screaming’ a punk photos exhibition and the legendary Keith Morris (Circle Jerks) is guest DJ for the night
