Images tell stories. By unfolding and revealing themselves, images invite us to add our thoughts, connecting them to our own memories to create something that resonates with us. Nature, people, dreams — captured moments that slowly swirl and draw you in. Such things can be seen with the works of Paige Moon; her obsessive attention to detail encourages your eyes to scan the stylized settings she’s created for us, searching for narratives. Poul Lange’s collage pieces are simple and poetic, images from the past reimagined as new stories. The works of Celia Jacobs and Kozyndan are like frozen thoughts, and Jeff Soto revives memories from the past, reminding us that they always surround us. Martha Rich’s work is in your face, bold and unapologetic, while Mark Dean Veca delivers psychedelic swirls of modern pop. Ryan Heshka’s works are mysterious and haunting, his sense of humor adding to the pulpy genre he pays homage to. Together they unite to form an unvarnished truth, individual stories working as a whole.

Mark Todd is an artist, teacher and curator living in Los Angeles. For this exhibition, he has brought together an eclectic yet cohesive group of local artists whose work signifies the current climate of modern mark making. Much like The Post-It Show that he curates each year at Giant Robot Gallery, as well as his previous show for sp[a]ce, For the Good Times, Mark’s curation style is immensely creative, with a vision for inviting artists and viewers into a space that is as fun as it is insightful and provoking.
