Geoff Geis has been an active contributor to LA’s vast and varied underground scene for the past decade as a musician, artist, and correspondent for LA Record and other publications. Geis’ boutique cassette label Vanity Projects is in charge of curating the art and music for Pehrspace from March 28-April 25.

Geis has built the month around friendship and collaboration, reaching out to people who have made the community so rich over the years.

Events include a one-night only revival of the long-standing Sean Carnage Mondays series that ended last year, a Craft Night with the people behind the LA Zine Fest, a new installment of the absurdist variety show Charm School, an Easter Karaoke and potluck, and musical performances by acts including So Many Wizards, Emily Lacy, Signor Benedick the Moor, Spooks, Ghost Noise, Sweet Bump it, a reunited Big Whup, and more. Large, colorful, and abstract works by artists Anne-Louise Ewen, Ghost Ghost Teeth, and Nora Quinn will adorn the walls for the entirety of the residency.

Artists:

Anne-Louise Ewen
anne louise ewenLos Angeles-based artist and designer Anne-Louise Ewen has been creating artwork professionally since 1994 when she graduated from an arts-focused magnet boarding school in Louisiana and moved to Paris, France. A Faulknerian childhood in the Deep South strengthened her resolve to bring art into existence instead of waiting for it to come to her.

She invents processes and explores unconventional uses of media to discover beauty and to create paintings that bear evidence of the physical actions she takes as well as the less predictable contributions of time and space. This evidence, she says, puts her in conspiracy with what happened at its creation.

In the series of paintings I’m creating now, titled The Cooling, Calming Night, (for Geoff Geis’ Vanity Projects Residency at Pehrspace), wanted to expand the boundaries of freedom in my work by painting directly on raw, unstretched canvas and to dare myself to create exquisiteness in increasingly experimental ways, using resin and various media, including acrylic ink, charcoal and gold sign paint. – Anne-Louise Ewen

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGhost Ghost Teeth
Vietnamese American artist Simon Tran, a.k.a. ghost ghost teeth, creates internal landscapes that allude to a certain cultural hybridity. Tran uses the language of abstraction to reference rainbow herbicides–Agent Orange being the most widely known– used during the Vietnam War. He creates lush jungle landscapes have a viral nature to them. He paints topographical hard edged organic shapes commingle with sweeping gestural marks that create a visceral experience.

Though he was located for a long time in Long Beach, Tran has recently moved to Berkeley where he attends UC and is represented by the Compound gallery. It was in Berkeley that he created the works on display during the Vanity Projects residency.

nora quinnNora Quinn
Nora Quinn’s creations are part Keith Haring, part Lisa Frank, and full of every color in the rainbow. Her mixed media formations are made by chopping and reassembling digital prints, painted textures, found colors and glittery pieces into their own sparkling, gem-like motifs.

Born in Philadelphia, Nora comes from a background in Graphic Design and Textiles. She continues to approach art from multiple disciplines in an effort to envelope her audience in pigmented particles as a welcome assault on the senses.
