In November of last year, Gerard O’Brien, owner of the astonishingly good Reform Gallery in Los Angeles, opened his new space, The Landing, with an exhibition of work by the late American artist J.B. Blunk. Known for his immense redwood sculptures, Blunk’s list of influences is as impressive as his chainsaw carvings, having studied pottery with Laura Andreson at UCLA, and Rosanjin Kitaoji and Toyo Kaneshige in Japan. His lesser-seen paintings and drawings, also featured in this show, evoke a similar simplicity and connection to nature. The exhibition closes on January 23rd, leaving just over two weeks to take in the work of an under-appreciated West Coast legend.
