La Luz de Jesus presents four shows by four amazing artists: Bruce Eichleberger “Babel,” Jennifer Jelenski “Let’s Get Lost,” Juan Muniz “Furry Tales,” and Krystoper Sapp “Altered States” opening Friday December 6th and running through December 29th.
Bruce Eichelberger is a self-taught artist who expresses his disdain for politicians, authority and religious institutions through allegorical illustrations and paintings. Bizarre sexuality, grotesque violence and his lovely, long-haired wife are common motifs in his art works, which are rendered through the mediums of pencil, ink, chalk, wood carving, and pyrography (wood burning). “Babel” uses biblical scripture to expose modern hypocrisy.
“Let’s Get Lost” is Jennifer Jelenski’s first solo show at La Luz and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Her current work is an eclectic assortment of stylized cartoon critters and Tibetan symbolism that comes from a love of Jack Kirby and the explorations in the more ‘interesting’ corners of her mind.
Juan Muniz is the new, visible face of Las Vegas Street Art. His work adorns the walls of the Cosmopolitan Hotel, and his murals have been commissioned all over Sin City. His cute and merchandise-friendly figures are often caught precariously participating in violence, and vandalism. revealing a secret life to his toons which resonates with glitter and gutter culture alike.
Krystopher Sapp‘s assemblage has been featured at the L.A. Municipal Art Gallery. Using Home Depot as his art supply store, Sapp creates intensely technical sculptures that address the horrors of war, the wonders of science, and the inevitability of mortality.
