Went to the open studios at Otis and CalArts Sunday. I have to say I thought the work was much stronger than the work I saw at Otis (and earlier in the year at UCLA). The school had a great vibe too. Enrique Castrejon had a great piece in one of the galleries, a set of simple coathangers that took flight and transformed into birds. Alyssa Gorelick had a great piece that hung in one of the galleries a series of flowers that were cut out and bent backwards so that the image and the context were viewed from opposite sides. I'll look forward to see this and more at the upcoming Supersonic show.
