The pictures I have made try to represent, to some extent, everyone’s experiences in perhaps a surreal or a fantasy form. An ambiance or deja vu familiarity maybe from a dream, or a nightmare and even a reality that exists somewhere. It is the negative experience that is most enduring, at least for me…like sitting down to enjoy your favorite pie only to discover a dead fly on it.

I hope the viewer enjoys each piece as much as I did creating it. This will be my last art exhibition in Southern California. — Harold Fox

Harold Fox has enjoyed unprecedented success in his retirement. Each of his previous exhibitions has completely sold out, and so we are sad to announce that this will be his last exhibition in Los Angeles. If you’ve been waiting to add one of his vivid reminiscences of a bygone era to your own art collection, now is the time to do it. If Charles Bukowski used paintbrushes instead of a typewriter, the outcome might look something like this. But there’s also a bit of Steinbeck and Hemingway and a whole lot of Nightmare Alley. Like a skid row Robert Williams, or a sideshow Frank Cassara, Fox’s work is both cartooned, but realistic, with the types of surrealist flourishes that would make Dali proud. Fox’s is a dark, shadowy world of second rate carnivals, low rent flophouses and dustbowl trailer parks filled with ornery hustlers, scheming grifters, and Machiavellian femmes fatales, as witnessed by a support cast of affable hobos and menacing clowns.

The Coaster Show 2016

The Coaster Show 2016

Announcing the fourth annual installment of  La Luz de Jesus’ The Coaster Show 2016! What started as a last minute substitution has grown into a legitimate institution–one of the most anticipated events of the LA Art Scene.

We’ve all done it. We’ve sat at the bar, drinking a beer and doodled on a coaster.

But most of us aren’t the extremely skilled painters, illustrators, animators, tattooists, sculptors or collage artists that are featured in this exhibition that takes a love of craft brewing and elevates it to high art.

This isn’t just the same, old crop of folks you see in every group show across town. There are a lot of participants who we quite frankly can’t believe we got to participate–especially considering the $250 ceiling price.

We produced a custom canvas for some of our favorite gallery folks to do what they do best, and transform a 4″ tondo coaster into museum-worthy exhibition pieces.

In the past three years, we’ve dotted our walls with tiny masterpieces, and we’re expecting another 1000 or so pieces this time around!
Each coaster is a solitary work priced $250 or less.

Patrons with a purchase history get the option to buy early–so contact the director for details. Single coaster sales will be open to the general public on opening night.

Whether you love beer and art, or just the art will blow your mind.

Here’s a PARTIAL artist list! Full list and preview will be up on the La Luz de Jesus site soon!

Coaster-Show2014

We’ve all done it. We’ve sat at the bar, drinking a beer and doodled on a coaster.

But most of us aren’t the extremely skilled painters, illustrators, animators, tattooists, sculptors or collage artists that are featured in this exhibition that takes a love of craft brewing and elevates it to high art.

The folks behind L.A. Beer Week produced a custom canvas for some of La Luz de Jesus’ favorite artists to do what they do best, and transform a 4″ tondo coaster into museum worthy exhibition pieces.

Last year, La Luz de Jesus dotted their walls with over 700 tiny masterpieces, and this year they are looking to outdo themselves. The rules are simple: Each coaster must be a solitary work (though it’s fine if several pieces work together contextually), and they must be priced $250 or less. There is no bottom, so some coasters might even be free!

This isn’t just the same, old crop of folks you see in every group show across town. There are a lot of participants who they quite frankly can’t believe they got to participate. Maybe it’s because they kept the rules simple: they told them to do whatever they wanted. Whether you love beer or don’t, the art will blow your mind.

And just like last year, there will be some amazing beer there, too!
