The Riches of Martha Rich

Remember LA artist and Freedom Wig-wearer Martha Rich, who we first met at the Yosemite Studios party last summer? She’s got a show up with David Sandlin at La Luz de Jesus, one of the galleries curated by the fine Billy Shire here in LA. We braved the worst night of weather in Los Angeles history (we actually had to use an umbrella) to attend the opening last Friday, but the show is up until January 27, and it probably won’t rain anymore for the rest of the year, so it’s safe to go. If you really can’t make it, view all the images here.

The woman, and her minimizer. Rich used to be a model for commercials and catalogs when she was a teen, and became fascinated with the visuals upon discovering an old JC Penney photoshoot of hers.

Rich was doing one painting a day at Freedom Wig, a year-long experiment that was supposed to end on Halloween 2007…but she extended it in honor of this show.

Yosemite Studios Party Was Pure Creative Dynamite

It was kind of a religious experience we had Saturday, stepping into the shared studio space of so many artists we admire from afar. We were at Yosemite Studios, a former liquor store now inhabited by Mark Todd, Esther Pearl Watson, Saelee Oh, Seonna Hong, Carlos Ramos and Martha Rich. Right there in the thick of their work, it was kind of like we were poking into their brains or something. And what brains they were!
