Rosamund Felsen Gallery Exhibit Blossoms With Artist Lavi Daniel:

Rosamund Felsen Gallery in Santa Monica is currently presenting its third exhibition of new works by Los Angeles-based artist Lavi Daniel called “A Seed With A Mind Of Its Own.”

The exhibition, which opened last Saturday and runs through March 9, consists of nine large-scale oil paintings, a dozen miniature paintings, and two sculptures.

In his new group of paintings, Daniel uses a compositional approach of moving to and through the center of the picture plane.

Relying on considerations of how a seed instructs the environment to spawn its imagery, Daniel looks to create situations that our daydreams live in.

The paintings are constructed of abstract progressions comprised of fragments that seem to come together through the artist’s muscularly fugitive application of keyed color and light.

The works are abstract and integrated by their feel for flux and continuity, while at the same time, they are infused with a sensual and atmospheric sense of the real.

Color takes on a kind of phantasmagorical primacy, where the incidents of dynamism and drama take place along the edges where forms join.

Daniel’s two new sculptures are made from re-purposed paint that has been scraped and removed from his paintings and built into masses of colored movements.

The color and surface are intensely varied, inducing a feeling of unrelenting beauty through tectonic upheaval.

“When I make these works, I feel as though I am encoded to instruct the environment, just as a seed is,” Daniel said.

The gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 5:30 pm.

It is located at 2525 Michigan Ave. B4 (Bergamot Station), Santa Monica.
