LVL3 proudly presents Semblance, a two-person exhibition featuring LA-based Kara Joslyn and Chicago-based Soo Shin. Joslyn’s paintings — largely monochrome paired with her reflective surfaces — offer eerie depictions of pared down forms while examining the tensions between light and dark. Shin’s creative practice draws upon the dysfunctional ways that faith stimulates a search for struggle, exploring the gray space that lingers between uncertainty and vulnerability. Semblance brings these artists together in a display revealing hidden traits while tearing down preconceived ideas of illusion and space.
Pleased to announce the acquisition by Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego of six foot painting, Toucan (2016).
Founded in 1941 as The Art Center in La Jolla, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) has evolved into an organization of national and international renown. The collection includes more than 4,000 works created since 1950, and reflects an artistic program that encourages promising emerging artists and recognizes mid-career artists whose work deserves more visibility. The Museum serves the region as a vital cultural and civic asset, with contemporary art and living artists at its core.
