Usually, every spring, Claudia Meyer would travel to Los Angeles to spend several months in the sun and to work in her Culver City Studio so we can show new works every season. With COVID-19, that was not possible this year. Instead, she worked extra hard and shipped almost 20 new paintings and sculptures from her studio in Paris straight to us. After being delayed and delayed, finally, just recently we received the massive crate. You can now see the first works on display in the gallery.

It's no secret that I am not a fan of social media, but my artists have pressured me from the beginning to post about their work on social media. I kept telling them that I'd rather sell one of their works to one of our collectors than getting a hundred "likes" or "thumbs up" by teenagers that scroll through Facebook while waiting for the school bus. Ok, I know that's not a fair assessment, but you get my point. However, I have found an affinity for Instagram, because it's all about images and you don't have to read about your (so-called) friends' latest Starbucks experience.

jd hansen is pushing the limits of bronze sculpture once again and it so happens that three sculptures that have been under development for the last year, are all coming out at almost the same time. "Das Spiel" (above) is scheduled to arrive in the gallery this coming week and "Soulmates" and "Ein Moment" have just arrived. We also received news from her studio about a substantial price increase that will go into effect on March 19th, due to increasing foundry costs.

A few days ago, by chance, I found my first communication with Julian Voss-Andreae from 2013. A lot has changed in those 8 years but one of the most amazing things to watch during this time was Julian's career. To be a part of this journey is really wonderful. There are many exciting projects in the making and I will update you about all of them, but for now I wanted to mention that we have several of his sculptures on display in the gallery, some of them are the last in the edition, for example "Dream" (above) and "Buckeyball" (below), one of his earliest sculptures or "Ariadne (Holey)", a one-of-a-kind bronze sculpture. We are working on a website that will ultimately become a work index of all of his sculptures and you can see this work in progress here: www.hohmann.art/jva-portfolio

More than 20 years ago, when I lived in Germany, I had galleries in both, Hamburg and Berlin. One of the most spectacular exhibitions during that time was a show of paintings by Xenia Hausner, who is today one of the most important living Austrian painters. We would collaborate on several occasions and I ended up publishing four of her extremely ambitious limited edition works. It is more accurate to call them serial originals, because although the basis was a lithograph, Hausner painted complete paintings over each and every one.

He is a magician when it comes to transforming wood. Pierme’s sculptures evoke qualities of architecture and nature, combining balance, energy, and movement. “I have an admiration for architecture,” he says. “And then, when I look at what nature does, I’m very admirative as well. So, what I’m often trying to do is take what I receive from the natural world and mix it with the human influence.” That contrast of the organic and mechanical typifies his love of tension and contradiction — the way color and positive-negative juxtaposition can create a
kinetic effect. The results are works of art of striking minimalistic elegance with a post-modern quality and sophistication.

Bernard Cathelin (1919 - 2004) was a French painter known for his uniquely stylized abstractions of flowers, landscapes, and figures. Thick palette knife strokes of paint capture the light and atmosphere of the Provence, where he spent much time. Cathelin's work has been exhibited in countless museums and galleries around the world. There are very few original works currently on the market and none of this quality and condition. Painted in 1988, "Sieste Au Petit Saint Vincent" depicts a nude woman lounging under an open window that looks out onto the water. Petit Saint Vincent is an Island in the Caribbean and Cathelin beautifully captured the lazy, warm island summer afternoon in this stunning 59" x 59" painting.

This is the first exhibition of the renowned hyper realistic painter from Canada at our gallery. Beliveau, who studied art in Quebec, has exhibited his work in galleries and museums around the world and is recipient of numerous awards. He captures books, often the spines of several, and combines them to create a new narrative.

Contemporary painter DJ Hall’s Nocturne pays homage to peer artist and Neo-expressionist Eric Fischl’s famous 1982 work Barbecue, in which a young boy fills the foreground with a flame pouring out of his mouth as his grinning father commandeers a grill behind him near the pool. Only in Hall’s version, as in all of her pieces, the primary subject is a female and the world is one of her own making.
