Tinlark Gallery in Hollywood opens its third show, Coping Mechanisms, April 14, 2007. True to their mission, the show features collectible art of the highest quality at accessible prices.
Coping Mechanisms, which address the complex physiological states within the wake of American nihilism, is the first Los Angeles show for Grant Barnhart, fresh from his sold-out solo show at OKOK Gallery in Seattle. Grant's multi-layered compositions include animals, humans, and invented hybrids combined into narratives that both confide and conceal themselves before the viewer.
Also included in Coping Mechanisms is artist Nancy Baker Cahill in her two-person debut at Tinlark Gallery. Baker Cahill's mixed media paintings investigate labor, domesticity, and class as applied to women.
In the project room, Andrew Au's twelve image series, Banque D'Epoch Eclipse, is a beautifully rendered examination of American ideologies through the iconography of US currency.
Coping Mechanisms runs April 14 through May 12. The opening reception is Saturday, April 14, 4-7 pm and is family friendly with craft tables for children.
