L&M Arts, Los Angeles was honored to present All Together Now, an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Thomas Houseago. This exhibition marked the artist’s first show with the gallery. Houseago, known for his exploration of the human figure, presented an impressive array of new sculptures, in forms both familiar and entirely new, and will showcase them in every material in his repertoire: plaster, bronze, aluminum, and wood. The artist also addressed the installation with a fresh perspective, animating the gallery spaces both inside and out. Houseago is known for playing a formal game, manipulating volume and relief to create tension between two and three-dimensional space. Body parts are impossibly linked together, and realistically sculpted limbs lead to drawn representations of others. This visual play gives these hulking figures a sense of fragility and awkwardness while remaining imposing and dynamic at the same time.
