Art in LA: Summer Must Sees



What:  Pae White:  “Smoke Knows” @ 1301 PE

When:  May 9 – July 3, 2009

Where:  6150 Wilshire Boulevard

Los Angeles, CA 90048

Why:  Pae White is an artist known for her work with light as air materials such as cat whiskers, spider webs, and reflections from Plexiglas sheets.  Her 5th solo exhibition at 1301 PE, “Smoke Knows,” is a natural continuation of her previous work, featuring elegant freeze-framed “smoke tapestries” that seamlessly combine digital technology with the Old-World Belgian tradition of tapestry weaving.  Other delights include a deconstructed fireplace, hundreds of fake leaves, and carvings of paper that masquerade as “smoke drawings” with the help of a laser.  White’s elegant yet challenging work make her one of the most important international female artists working today.
