Los Angeles, CA—Gabba Gallery is excited to bring you four solo shows by CANTSTOPGOODBOY, Lucas Raynaud, Nichole McDaniel, and Shlome J. Hayun. All four shows, curated by Jason Ostro and Elena Jacobson, open February 22 and will be on view through March 7.
CANTSTOPGOODBOY returns for his fourth solo show at Gabba Gallery, this time exploring The Language of Flowers. In this jubilant collection of floral works, the artist refreshes the timeless Still Life genre with his signature pop aesthetic. Vibrant color palettes, playful lines, and rich layering techniques converge in each stunning canvas. We invite you to join in the discourse, and converse in the language of flowers.
Lucas Raynaud returns to Gabba with Entitled, a playful library of framed vintage books embossed with hilarious and unexpected titles. While the books appear faded and old, the humorous titles seared into their covers poke fun at issues that are decidedly “now.” Raynaud’s writing is sharp and clever, taking aim at everyone from Internet Influencers to Baby Boomers. Entitled is sure to amuse viewers with its spirited, satirical, and poignant commentary on modern society.
For her first solo show at Gabba, Long Beach artist Nichole McDaniel sets her sights on the skies with Daydreaming. Cloud formations drift across celestial color fields in these soothing and inspiring works. Join us for Daydreaming, and find yourself with your head in the clouds.
Shlome J. Hayun celebrates the tools of the artist’s trade in Painting Homage, his first solo show at Gabba Gallery. Spray cans are suspended mid-spray, frozen paint brushes seem guided by invisible hands, all atop brightly colored abstract backgrounds. When looking at a finished art piece the tools and materials used to create it are often forgotten, but Hayun turns them into the art itself, urging the viewer to pay homage.
The opening reception for all four shows will take place Saturday, February 22, 7-11pm. The event is free and open to the public; no RSVP required. DJ Jonathan Williams spinning. Bar sponsored by Peroni. Tacos by Norma. Limited free parking behind 3125 Beverly Blvd (enter off Dillon), street parking, Uber/Lyft encouraged. Gabba Gallery is located at 3126 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles 90057. All four shows will be on view through March 7. After opening night, gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, from noon to 3pm or by appointment.
