Artist talk and preview of the upcoming exhibition, Signs and Alarms: The Art of Margaret Nielsen and Scott Grieger, 1970-2015
Temporary Space is an alternative exhibition platform to the traditional art gallery model. Unlike the traditional gallery model, Temporary Space will not represent artists. Instead of showcasing the art of developing or emerging artists, Temporary Space will exhibit the art of mid-career and late-career artists, with particular emphasis upon artists who have been under-appreciated, both critically and economically, by the art establishment.
About the artists at Temporary Space LA:
Richard Shelton’s paintings have been displayed in the Smithsonian Art Institute’s Hirshhorn Museum and other museums in the United States and are in numerous private collections. Praised by critics for his technique and intensity, each of Shelton’s emotionally charged paintings offers a snippet of social commentary on life in the modern world.
For painter Margaret Nielsen, the journey has been a recurring theme in her artwork. The painter travels through her work and her own psyche, portraying aspects of life with a universal commonality and delving into the mystery of the human condition. Through the use of recurring imagery such as birds, the four elements, and other natural motifs, Nielsen connects the private, intangible world with the external, physical world. Her paintings, often small, jewel-like, and intimate, evoke Jung’s notion of the collective unconscious in that they touch upon experiences common to us all in the journey through life.
Since the beginning of his career, Scott Grieger has sought to question and challenge assumptions of art and culture. He uses his art to communicate the ironies he observes, juxtaposing conventionally disparate art historical periods, media, imagery, and ideas. Humor and satire are used to question dominant positions, both hidden and implied, often through both text and image. The scope of Grieger’s work has been vast, from combining the signature style of Donald Judd with the body of a guitar to placing the Venus of Willendorf on a bucolic wooden sign next to her husband, Mr. Willendorf. As Grieger states, “free thought is the goal, and in humor there is insight.”
