Stephen Collier - Ben Sanders
LVL3 is excited to present Whiteface: a two-person exhibition featuring New Orleans-based Stephen Collier and Los Angeles-based Ben Sanders. Collier’s work is rooted in cultural and historical artifact and brings to attention the unknown or the uncertainty of facts. Sanders explores social themes while creating personal mythologies around food, race, faith, language, appropriation, and artistic production. Whiteface alludes to the origins of the clown and the development of the character throughout history. As one of the most important theatrical designs of the 1800’s, the whiteface clown grew from a sophisticated character into a clumsy one, of which modern society now associates with. Whiteface as the basis of a costumed character plays with both identity roles as well as a wide range of emotional expressions. Similarly within the constructs of whiteface and character association, Collier and Sanders’ play encourages viewers to look beyond the colored surfaces that exist in their work.

Milano Chow – Sofia Leiby –Malin Gabriella Nordin
LVL3 is excited to present Two rocks do not make a duck: a group show bringing together Milano Chow, Sofia Leiby, and Malin Gabriella Nordin. Chow’s fine detail in her illustrations reflect a decorative sense within her window-like compositions that lean towards domesticity. Leiby uses painting as a self-generative process, pushing memory aside using screen printing and layered mark-making. Nordin assembles forms with a unique undertone of emotion resting within its shadows.“Two rocks do not make a duck” is a hikers saying to remind oneself that one rock resting upon another does not alway signify an intentional cairn marking. The stacking of stones may not alway represent a direction, and a viewer must pay close attention in order to avoid being misled. These three artists address the viewer’s perspective of surface and how layering brings forward additional feelings from within the work.
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 12, 2014 6:00pm – 10:00pm
