ARCHIVE MACHINES

 

 

The following are works that fall into the category of View. These include photographs, digital collages, images of paintings.

 

The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG), and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation (BAPF) are pleased to announce an open call for artworks for ARCHIVE MACHINES, an online-only juried exhibition that brings together recent works by Southern California artists. Due to the rapidly shifting nature of present events, this exhibition is conceived as a response in both form and concept to the COVID-19 crisis and the uncanny experience of collective life on pause that the Safer-at-Home directive has initiated.

This black and white drawing by Jeffrey Vallance features a square plot of grass surrounded by roped stanchions. In the center of this plot is an easel holding a paint palette and an upright painting featuring a loose depiction of a landscape. There are also four rectangular paintings on the grass, which also feature loose depictions of landscapes. The top of the drawing has text that says Plein Air Installation, while the bottom of the drawing has the artist's signature and date of 2020.

Jeffrey Vallance, “En Plein Air”

“My name is Jeffrey Vallance. This is my work En Plein Air. It looks like an illustration of a spot of grass surrounded by stanchions with an easel and artwork in the center. It gives the impression that it is indoors or in a place that is not natural for grass to grow in. I like art. I am happy to be on this website. Thank you.”
