Since the ascension of abstraction to the forefront of modern art in the beginning of the 20th century, both critical and popular language surrounding the term have evolved to regard it in opposition to representative images. In his new group exhibition, artist and curator Torey Thornton steps back from his own career as a painter to examine some of the most exciting paintings of his contemporaries. Thornton’s most recent curatorial effort, “Your Face In The Mirror Isn’t Your Face, Similar to Plastic Silverware,” now open at Moran Bondaroff gallery just a stone’s throw from OCLA, gives pause to anyone who might say that there’s nothing new to be done in the field of abstract painting. Last Saturday’s opening packed Moran Bondaroff’s white-raftered gallery (formerly OHWOW) with LA’s young denizens from the city’s art community.
“Your Face In The Mirror Isn’t Your Face, Similar To Plastic Silverware” is open from November 19th to December 17th at Moran Bondaroff, 937 N. La Cienega Blvd.
