SMEAR – I’m Tired of Being Sexy
|Filled with references to growing up in East Hollywood, SMEAR‘s artwork incorporates these images to create a fascinating puzzle. Colorful and innocent at first glance, these urban compositions unveil a more complicated story. Upon closer inspection, the imagination of a non-conformist becomes evident as it unleashed a singular perspective.
Lawrence Asher Gallery also introduces photographer Will Potter who captures moments of everyday life unfettered by pre-conceived notions. Potter’s glimpses of Los Angeles transform and refresh the city as if newly discovered.
Please join us for the opening reception of these exceptional exhibitions on Saturday, August 15th, 2009, 6 – 10 pm.
