The Reality of Illusions

Opening March 17, 2022 | Los Angeles

Work

Arushi Gallery presents “The Reality of Illusions, ” an art exhibit showcasing three Los Angeles based female artists in celebration of Women’s History Month. The featured artists, Lindsey Nobel, LINZ, and Marta Solaz, all convey unique perspectives and experiences through their work, but are brought together through the common themes of time/space, emotion, and color.

 The exhibit dwells on three questions that connect the work of these artists. The first is “what is?” which explores the present. The second is “what was?” which reflects on the past, and the third is “what is to come?” which ponders on the future. Another major connecting factor in this show are emotions. People are often influenced by their surroundings and the emotions that are associated with them. The individual emotions of the artists shine through whether it be represented through realistic figurative forms or highly abstracted shapes. Color also plays a crucial role in this show. Each artist’s distinctive color palettes and knowledge of color theory create a rich, vibrant quality that draws the viewer into their work as well as into their lives. Although Lindsey Nobel, LINZ, and Marta Solaz come from unique backgrounds with multitudes of individualized experiences, their artwork is united through the exploration of these common themes.

 “The Reality of Illusions” opens at Arushi Gallery on March 17, 2022.

Marta Solaz

Marta Solaz is an emergent LA-based artist from Barcelona, Spain, where she studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona. She experiences life through arts in different facets. As an actress, singer and visual artist, she brings all this knowledge to her passion for painting, which she is about dedicating nowadays. Her inner seeking aspect leads her to bring to her creations all of her spiritual research about philosophies such as Taoism, shamanism and sacred geometry.

She had the opportunity to exhibit her artwork in Madrid, Spain and in Los Angeles at “The Other Art Fair” promoted by Saatchi Art. Today she is exhibiting in the show “The Hourglass Overturned” at Arushi Gallery LA.

Lindsey Nobel

Lindsey Nobel’s work explores the unseen and subliminal connections that bind human beings together through advanced technologies pervasive throughout modern society. Ironically, even though we are more connected than ever before, we have grown more alone and divided than ever before.

Her collections seek to investigate this juxtaposition and invite the viewer closer to better understand this hidden language. She relies on our desires for connection, touch, spirituality and seduction to dig deeper into our shared consciousness. This is reflected in her work as something that she refers to as “Neurons,” which depict these intersections with the human nervous system. The aesthetic practice she employs is a combination of abstract expressionism rooted in the principles of minimalism.

 For her paintings she utilizes oil, acrylic, ink, resin, coffee or pen on canvas, masonite or wood panels. Mixed media is incorporated in select paintings, photography and sculptures. In addition, a 50cc syringe is uniquely employed to eject paint onto canvas instead of brushes for the ejection series of paintings. Her influences are first and foremost everything she sees, hears, tastes, feels and experiences. People she has met and yet to meet continuously inspire and enlighten the creative fire within her.
