Night Gallery is pleased to present Reflections, an exhibition of new ceramics by Grant Levy-Lucero. This is the artist’s second exhibition with the gallery.
In this presentation, the artist continues his exploration of the Greco-Roman amphora vessel. In his past works, Levy-Lucero has consistently reanimated brand logos and imagery sourced from the hand-painted signs that are ubiquitous in Los Angeles. However, recent shifts in the artist’s life have motivated him to push the form into new aesthetic and conceptual territories. A reflection is also a transposition; as one gazes at their own image, they are confronted with where—and who—they’ve been in the past, and possibilities for the future. In Reflections, Levy-Lucero enacts a simultaneous turn inwards toward the self and an expansion outward into the world.
