West Los Angeles College Art Gallery proudly presents “Le Mer De Glace : 2012 Overture” featuring Dominique Kippelen, Glenn Bach and Lothar Schmitz.

Drawing visual notations interpreted from the 19th century Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich’s work, “La Mer De Glace” (aka”The North Pole Expedition Disaster”), visiting artist from Strasbourg, France, Dominique Kippelen,  deconstructs the geometrics of Friedrich’s work into parsed appendages of soft sculptures and wooden maquettes left in the wake of an emptied dogma; kenosis to nature as if.

As a counterpoint to Kippelen’s ephemeral inflections, artist and physicist, Lothar Schmitz’s “manufactured ecologies” accentuate the far reaches of speculated contemporary human-nature negotiations.

Glenn Bach’s processing of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture as a double century old skeletal composition, aptly titled, “2012 Overture” will premiere amongst the resident morphemes in its effort to rise above the intermittent tide.
This exhibit was made possible with the invaluable assistance of
Denise Nugent, Saba Salekfard and Behn Samareh
