Fresh Faces in Art: Eight LA Artists You Should Know

Mixed media materials duke it out for abstract/figurative supremacy in which, come the final bell, both sides win. Carlson Hatton’s large and virtuoso, collage-like, paintings succeed in layering his complex myriad sources, from art history to daily life, into a phantasmagoric kaleidoscope of imagery that drags you into the fight. Hints of systems, of remembered glimpses, ring memories’ bells and keep the swirling movement contained within the ring. Patterns and every approach to mark making seem to jab and punch, duck and dive, in the action packed arena. Art wins with a KO. (MP). http://www.carlsonhatton.com
