LeBasse Projects presents:
"The Golden Record" A Solo Exhibition by Blaine Fontana
April 24th – May 29th, 2009 Opening reception: Saturday, April 24th, 7pm-10pm
Los Angeles, CA - LeBasse Projects is excited to present, The Golden Record, an exhibition of new works from Portland based artist Blaine Fontana. In this anticipated solo exhibition, Fontana returns to the gallery scene after a nearly three year hiatus from showing.
The show is titled after the Golden Records placed on the Voyager spacecraft sent across the universe in 1977. The sets of gold and copper plated records contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form who may find them. Fontana’s series of paintings are set to portray a snapshot of humanity and history of humans on Earth. The show will have a strong focus on humanity and its inherited argument between beauty and tragedy.
Reinvigorated by the robust art scene in Portland, Oregon, Fontana has been working on The Golden Record for almost a year and is looking to show collectors a more serious and mature body of work.

It looks very exciting. I've been wanting to see Doyle's sculpture in person. They look so haunting and intriguing. I look forward to seeing LeBasse show in nyc again sometime in the future, Beau. So I can at least have the opportunity to see something as cool as this:)
