About Eternal Universe:
I believe art is a reflection of ourselves, the story of humanity, and a quest to understand the physical and metaphysical world. As we try to understand our place in the universe, art can be an important part of the dialogue we can create and share with each other. In my work, I seek to reveal the mysterious with arcane imagery and techniques that make sense to me on a deep level that words cannot quantify. In "Eternal Universe," there is an underlying dichotomy of the power of technology and our quantum connection to it and our Universe. In this work, I present the questions of how might our use or mis-use of technology permanently alter the future of humanity and what is our personal responsibility for our effect on the world and each other? It is my attempt to capture the complexity and beauty of the underlying mechanisms that bind us in an emotion. - Daniel Martin Diaz

Karma's Kreatures
November 4 - December 31, 2016
Opening reception: Friday, November 4, 5:00

Meet the artist Friday November 4th 7pm only at POP Gallery!

The work of Renee Lawter has taken a direction in conservation and preservation. Using her characters to deliver this potent message which she is known for, unique characters with crooked smiles that welcome the viewer into a world both foreign & familiar. Sepia tones combined with beautifully chosen vintage frames force the viewer to take a more serious look at these cuddly monsters as she masterfully balances her wit and message within the confines of each piece. The subject matter lays bare the wastefulness of our consumer culture, yet delivers it's meaning in small bite size portions. Playful characters charm the viewer into thought with each global issue that is addressed. Renee uses her uncanny ability to present her point of view through images with which you can't help but to sympathize.

Renee has been creating incredible creatures for over 20 years. She currently lives with her Boston Terrier Zero in Los Angeles. She shows frequently throughout southern California and spreading into Berlin, Australia & Amsterdam. Her artwork is sought after by famous Hollywood types such as Danny Elfman & Bobby Lee of MAD TV.
