Keith Boadwee & Patrick Rock at Queen’s Nails Annex

Keith Boadwee at QNA is a great example of a high-caliber show in a small space. Super meticulously executed and installed photographs, collages, sculpture, drawings. Love the Magritte-ish/Lucas Samara-ish self-portrait, the David Hockney yarn drawing, and the Santa Monica Blvd meets Castro Street Ruscha-inspired map drawing. Don’t have photos, but you cans see previous work at the artist’s page at Lightbox Gallery (LA).

Portland-based sculptor/conceptual artist Patrick Rock is showing his cake on a flourescent pink floor, along with a short video and a photograph. The whole space is an installation of intense pink color, intensely sweet cake smell, and a loud video of a pink baloon deflating. It’s weird how Rock sparingly uses intense, loud elements to make a statement. Very funny. See Patrick’s artist’s website.

Patrick Rock's fallen cake at Queen's Nails Annex. It's huge, maybe 6-8 feet long. The walls are actually white, but look pink due to the screaming florescent floor.
