Here one art show, I missed last night – artist Elijah Blue’s Step-and-Repeat opening reception of a red-carpet mockery [à la Warhol] at Kantor Gallery. I can’t wait to oogle Elijah’s pieces at Kantor later on today. The Step-and-Repeat paintings and installation exhibition debuts Elijah’s inaugural fine-art pieces – which runs through through Friday, April 2.

Kantor Gallery is located at 7025 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California [90038].

Shayna Gaffen @ Shayna@KantorGallery.com: Step-&-Repeat reflects on the amalgamation of the corporatocracy and celebrity cultures through use of the step-and-repeat wall, a staple at red-carpet events. Manufactured quickly and brandished with corporate logos, these backdrops are signage for the biggest sponsor, lacking any aesthetic substance; Blue has shifted the paradigm and forged carefully hand-painted panels. Using a photorealistic approach, he suggests that celebrity personalities have merged with these backdrops, becoming a single entity of commerce. The celebrity and the backdrop are the same thing, they are both billboards, they have fused – Blue. The wordage of Blue’s logos, such as Ivory Tower, are the punch line and heart of his reflections, underlining his conclusions on the condition of celebrity, aiming fame back at itself. The installations themselves are so meticulously crafted that it is hard to differentiate between these process heavy painted panels and the one-night-stand of traditional, cheaply made step and repeat panels.

In addition to the three large installations based on the traditional step and repeat wall, the exhibit will feature five smaller works that have the essence of the larger pieces as they reflect through Blue’s carefully chosen logos the relationship between celebrity and the corporatocracy.
