Exhibition: Kimberly Brooks Miniatures, April, 2011

“Ginnifer Study” 6 x 8″ Oil on linen 2010 Kimberly Brooks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Taylor De Cordoba is pleased to present new works by Kimberly Brooks as a part of their 5 Year Anniversary Exhibition.   For years Brooks has painted tiny canvases before creating larger paintings as an excersize in palette and composition.  The resulting loose brushwork and abstractions provide an embrionic view of later paintings but are works in their own right.  The exhibition will run from April 9 – May 14, 2011, with a reception on Saturday, April 9 from 6 – 8pm.   In addition to the miniatures, the gallery will feature one new piece by each represented artist, whose visions have shaped the face of the gallery including Sasha Bezzubov, Kyle Field, Timothy Hull, Charlene Liu, Melissa Manfull, Danielle Nelson Mourning, Chris Natrop, Claire Oswalt, Jeana Sohn, Frohawk Two Feathers.

Taylor De Cordoba opened its doors to the public on April 15, 2006. Since then, the gallery has mounted over thirty exhibitions, participated in numerous art fairs, and launched a lauded bi-monthly reading series. Taylor De Cordoba and gallery represented artists have been featured in local and international publications, including: Frieze, Art in America, Artforum, Artweek, Art LTD, V Magazine, Elle, Vanity Fair, W Magazine, Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, LA Weekly, Beautiful Decay, C Magazine, Whitewall, The Huffington Post, LA Confidential, Angeleno and more. Los Angeles natives Heather Taylor and Alex de Cordoba co-own the gallery. Taylor De Cordoba is located at 2660 S La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles, CA and is open to the public Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-6pm.
