Art I Bought Last Night

Tonight the Everything but the Kitchen Sync Show opens at La Luz de Jesus Art Gallery in Hollywood.  Over a hundred artists are showing their work.  Knowing that my favorite artist, Click Mort, was showing some of his stuff, I knew I had to get in their early and see it. Which I did, last night.  So I ended up buying two of Click’s Pieces –

Click Mort - A Peck for Daddy

Click Mort - Breakfast Romp

While hanging out with Mia, Chantal Claret, and Jimmy Urine last night I heard someone say, “James!” I turned around and it was te man himself, Click Mort!  He recognized me from the blogs I’ve posted here about the work.  I own nine of Click’s pieces, so I’m quite a fan.

Click Mort and James Gunn

Click and I talked for a while about how he got his start making his freaky sculptures with a collection of Hummel knockoffs and a box of barnyard animal toys, and how my forthcoming movie SUPER is really the head of a superhero movie on the body of an arthouse/grindhouse flick – so our work isn’t really all that far apart.

Craig Larotonda - Divinatio

While at La Luz last night behind-the-scenes, I fell in love with another piece – Divinatio by Craig Larotonda, and so I had to purchase that as well.

Even though I got these awesome pieces, there’s still plenty of cool stuff available at the show.  Firstly, there are two more Click Mort pieces available, which I also would have bought if I wasn’t already feeling gluttonous with my purchases.  Here are just a few more of the interesting pieces:

Derek Harrison - Homage to Carvaggio

Susan Agpar - Binding Lot

Hui Tan - Knot Game

Matthew Couper - Allegorical Development of Art in a Field Painting

Brian Raszka - Pest Control

JAW Cooper - Nectar

Mel Weiner - Robert Mitchum

Bob Doucette - When Betty Met Bosco

Delphia - The Caul

Junko Mizuno - Stomach

Eric Richardson - Fertization

Sunny Gu - Beautiful Solitude

Mark Gleason - Nest

Da Hae Kim - The Beewalker

José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros - The True Ending: Princesses

The Everything but the Kitchen Sync show runs tonight, March 4, through the 27th at La Luz de Jesus.

ALSO: TONIGHT the trailer for SUPER will debut on Yahoo Movies – 7 pm Eastern, 4 pm Pacific.  So be on the lookout for that!



Be sure to see SUPER in theaters this April, starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Michael Rooker, and Nathan Fillion, written and directed by James Gunn.
