Niche.LA presents Process of Transformation
Niche.LA & Lounge 441 present “Process of Transformation”
new work by Richard Edson & John Edward Faulkner
curated by Lilli Muller
LOS ANGELES, CA – On December 8, 2005 (12-9PM), Niche.LA & Lounge 441 present “Process of Transformation,” curated by Lilli Muller. A collection of digital art by Richard Edson and John Edward Faulkner and digital videos by Lustre, “Process of Transformation” examines visions of metamorphosis and conversion.
Richard Edson, one time drummer with Sonic Youth, has led a rich and varied career. An actor, he has appeared in 63 films — beginning with Jim Jarmusch’s “Stranger Than Paradise.” As a photographer, Richard has been featured in magazines: “Juxtapoz,” “The Propagandist,” “WaxPoetics,” and “Puta.”
John Edward Faulkner’s work explores the wave front created through the fusion of media and medium. He says, “It propagates the surface of symbolism and iconography employed in commercial imagery to the point where they release their latent potential.”
By creators Dmitry Kmelnitsky & Kalim Chan, Lustre is an interdisciplinary creative group that addresses socio-cultural issues through the convergence of arts and technology in both commercial and fine arts practice.
Situated next to each other, Niche.LA & Lounge 441 form one space that features an 18-seat private screening room and a mixed-media/video art gallery. A digital cooperation in the middle of Gallery Row, these two “mini-galleries” offer an eclectic artistic experience on the 4th floor of the Spring Arts Tower in less than 750 square feet.
