Full Color & Look Book @ Current Space

John Bohl, Justin Kelly and Bettina Yung: Full Color

Its 80s indoorsy vs 70s summer in Current Gallery's simultaneous exhibitons, Full Color (John Bohl, Justin Kelly and Bettina Yung) and Look Book (Russell Hite and Elena Johnston).  Digital / decorative motifs and cold color, from pastel to RGB are favored in the individual and collaborative works of Bohl, Kelly and Yung.  Exhibiting sculpture, prints, video and painting, the handmade, found, digital and even individual voice melt into a cool, consistent aesthetic.
Hite and Johnston's Look Book in the smaller gallery feels like a trip to an awesome desert vintage store.  Warm colors, collage, totems, imagined artifacts, animals etc.  The works are all beautiful, summery and (ahem) very affordable.  
Catch both these shows before they come down on the 19th!
