Opening Tomorrow: Joshua Dildine‘s first ever online exhibition titled “You Bring The Salad”

Mark Moore Fine Art is proud to announce Joshua Dildine‘s first ever online exhibition titled “You Bring The Salad” from December 20, 2017 – January 28, 2018 exclusively on ARTSY. This featured show will feature nine exciting new paintings on canvas and works on paper from the artist.

Dildine_Filmy-Album_2017_South and East wall

JOSHUA DILDINE, Filmy Album, 2017 / Acrylic, oil and uv coated ink on canvas in 25 parts / 180 × 744 in / 457.2 × 1889.8 cm For Additional Information

Merging found autobiographical photographs with viciously gestural painting, Joshua Dildine confronts the subject of conventional recollection and familial structure. A fixation shared by society at large, the contemplation of past events and relationships ultimately shapes our psychology moving forward – as a flicker of nostalgia, shame, or glee can be activated by a single sensory cue. With a purposeful cognizance, Dildine mines these memories for the underlying traits that forge our shared humanity: the humor found in the compromising, the endearment found in the aggravating, or the conflict found in the absent. His painterly swaths are as visceral as the family photos they conceal, his vivid palette alluding to the glaring absurdity of our incessant self-analysis and contemplation of the past. In his most recent body of work, Dildine embellishes elements or patterns within the original image in order to create a farcical confrontation with the past – a perspective that is both critical and celebratory. Through this carefully disjointed lens, Dildine creates experiences that are at once present and bygone, and whimsically harnesses nature of our being.

JOSHUA DILDINE, RYRYJOSCO, 2017 / Ink on paper / 24 × 18 in / 61 × 45.7 cm For Additional Information

A Call To Action: Help The Victims of The L.A. / Ventura Fires

171010094953-09-ca-wildfire-1010-super-169

A series of wildfires the last two weeks scorched more than 300,000 acres in Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Diego counties in Southern California. The first and largest blaze, dubbed the Thomas Fire, started December 4 in Ventura County and has moved North, becoming a threat to Santa Barbara County.

Here are the numbers as of Tuesday morning, according to Los Angeles County officials and Cal Fire, a state fire-safety agency:

  • Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties: 234,200 acres, 20% containment, 794 structures destroyed, 187 structures damaged out of at least 18,000 threatened.
  • Skirball Fire in Bel Air: 422 acres, 85% containment.
  • Lilac Fire in San Diego County: 4,100 acres, 90% contained, 151 structures destroyed and 56 damaged.
  • Rye Fire in Santa Clarita: 6,049 acres, 93% containment.
  • Creek Fire in Sylmar: 15,619 acres, 98% containment, at least 30 structures damaged or destroyed, at least 2,500 homes threatened.

As many as 200,000 people had been displaced in Los Angeles and Ventura counties and authorities closed — and then reopened — parts of the 405 Freeway on Wednesday last week, causing gridlock throughout the region. More than 50 schools were closed in the Los Angeles area through the end of the week. Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency, freeing up state funds to help tackle the wildfires.

Here are a few ways you can help:

Thomas Fire Fund

  • The United Way of Ventura County, American Red Cross of Ventura County, and the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services have teamed up to create the Thomas Fire Fund.
  • Text UWVC to 41444 to make a cash donation, call 805-485-6288, or go online to United Way of Ventura County’s website.
  • Checks with “Thomas Fire Fund” in the memo line can be mailed to 702 County Square Drive, Suite 100 Ventura, CA 93003.

The Salvation Army

  • The Salvation Army is accepting food and water at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.
  • You can donate cash by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or visiting the website.

The Red Cross

The Humane Society of Ventura County

  • The Humane Society of Ventura County has taken in over 100 animals.
  • Drop off any of the following items at 402 Bryant St. in Ojai: Alfalfa hay, Timothy hay, cat chow, rabbit food, flashlights, headlamps, lanterns, water troughs, bottled water, fruit, snacks, hoses, and power generators.
  • Donate food and water for volunteers, or make a cash donation on HSVC’s website.

Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation

  • Donate to Noah’s Legacy Fund, which provides supplies, training, and equipment to first responders charged with rescuing animals from areas stricken by natural disasters.
  • Mail donations to P.O. Box 100515, Pasadena, CA 91189-0515 or through the LACACF website.
