Going Places, a solo exhibition of works by artist Gosha Levochkin, will be presented at the CAVE Gallery in Venice beginning Friday, Oct. 8 through Nov. 5.
An opening reception for the exhibit with DJs and live painting by John Park is scheduled from 7 to 10 p.m. Oct. 8 at CAVE, 507 Rose Ave., Venice.
Levochkin’s artworks in the exhibit focus on his personal exploration of the inherent need to wander, roam, explore and search for somewhere new, a gallery spokesperson says. The artwork is comprised of a series of bold ink drawings complemented with a bright watercolor and gouache palette.
This series of work is an “exploration of and reaction to the artist’s urban environment,” the spokesperson notes.
Levochkin focuses on the effects of time and use on buildings and structures, and depicts how this wear and tear contributes to their city’s unique history and character.
The artist said he is intrigued with how people live their daily lives in urban density and clutter and somehow make it all work. Through his works, he says he imagines how each city dweller has a personal view of their surroundings visualized in their minds.
The gallery spokesperson says Levochkin’s art captures visions of an urban apocalypse that are expressed with an underlying humor, in a compelling and captivating way.
