Exhibition: June 1-July 1
Reception: Fri. June 1, 8-11 PM
La Luz de Jesus Gallery is pleased to present “Whimsical Windows” by artist Ave Rose this will mark the artist third exhibition with the gallery. Ave Rose is a multidisciplinary artist who uses clockwork, antiques, insects, bones and taxidermy ephemera in congress with motion mechanics to produce reanimated, organic robots that tend more towards Rococo than Science Fiction. By Incorporating precious gems and metals, her creatures are whimsical amusements that practically breathe with artificial life. Ave earned her BA in English Literature from UCLA. Her work has been featured in music videos, TV shows, storefront installations, and art galleries around the world. In 2015, Ave Rose was a contestant on the national TV show Steampunk’d, where she created fantasy story-lines, props, sculptures and fashion pieces in every episode. On the grand finale, Ave’s original steampunk fashion pieces helped seal the win for her team, and Dita Von Teese compared her designs to that of Jean Paul Gaultier.
