Utopia

Heath West

January 11 – February 15, 2020

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 11, 5:30-8 p.m.

Los Angeles-based artist Heath West presents a new series of paintings in Utopia, his third solo exhibition with the gallery. The work advances the conceptual basis for West’s long-standing architectural subject matter in his largest paintings to date. Created in a range of bold, monochromatic palettes, these architectural portraits of unique locations point to a bygone era of architectural design that has been lost with the rise of ideals fostered under late capitalism. West rejects these new values, creating paintings that offer aspirational alternatives. Derived from the Greek, translated literally as “nowhere”, Utopia is a fictional place often located in a dream or in a memory. Through paintings that focus on volumes of solid color and varying line weights, the artist creates spaces with a discernible atmosphere. In the process, Heath West transforms specific locales into places with an otherworldly aura.
