Series Statement: 

Our current climate of unrest due to the pandemic has left many feeling isolated and alone. With this series, I wanted to create juxtapositions that would remind humanity that just as night falls, so does the next day come.

I created these works out of my fascination with how temperature affects film. When I first took test shots in the daytime, I noticed that the instant film was warm; conversely, my night shots were cool.

This series has been in progress for over a year and has produced almost 100 unique Polaroid juxtapositions. With this mixed-media/photography project, I express my fascination with opposites and what lives within symmetry’s sublime beauty.

INTERVIEW W/ COWBOYS FROM SPACE

Published Aug. 7, 2022

READ FULL FEATURE HERE: Cowboys From Space

"Art as a universal language. Art as a way to face his inner demons. Lenny (@lenny__gerard) dedicates his free time to photography, creating several projects. For instance buying vintage Polaroids and taking photos of buildings by day and by night…" - Cowboys From Space

Interview - Global Understanding 

"I find the idea of global understanding deeply fascinating. I believe art is powerful as the greatest works are influential enough to travel around the world — from exhibit, to museum, to auction, and round again. Art carves a space in our minds that is unique to every individual. It has the power to create a reaction unique to whomever experiences it. Art is a way of recognizing oneself. "

Interview - Quote

"To take a journey in art is to follow a path that is never ending. You will never know all there is to know or discover and that inspires me to keep going and growing."

Biography: 

Lenny Gerard grew up in San Diego, CA in an environment of music, art, books, photography, and various outdoor activities. His mother was a professional glass, textile, and fiber artist. Lenny attended Parsons School of Design in New York where he received his B.F.A. in Photography and a B.A. in Liberal Arts. Lenny is a Digital Campaign and Content Producer/Art Director. He’s worked for Fortune 500 companies such as Netflix and NBC and continues to take on new clients.

Artist Statement: 

As a young boy, I never wanted to play with guns, toy tractors, or race cars. My mom knew and accepted that I was beginning to discover my sexuality, but she fully embraced it. 

My mom presented me with her coveted collection of barbies and barbie paraphernalia she had collected throughout her childhood. It was all in a 20-gallon plastic box. The box had a distinct smell when I opened it. I could almost taste the smell. I loved its nostalgic, pungent taste, like that of my grandmother’s perfume. I’ll never forget it. Somehow, my mom knew, as a boy, I’d enjoy the barbies. She was right. They became my everything.

Years later, I found myself in an emotional crisis. I needed to dive into a creative project to distract me from what was around me, my thoughts, and my feelings… So I dove into this box of barbies.

These photographs are an expression of my fascination with color, light, and shadow — and how they interplay with the emotional examination of a landscape. This series is an exploration of an unrealistic, unhealthy, insulting representation of the female appearance.

My goal is to transport the viewer into a surreal reality inspired by their inner child. As we grow from happy-go-lucky children into responsible adults, we leave behind the spirit of the child. We leave behind a curiosity, a wanting to play, and a sense of wonder and innocence. As adults, we must decide to return to that feeling.

In still-life photography, one must carefully choose props — placing them within a setting that provides context. Our childhood fascination with toys and collections, often put away in storage, comes out of the closet in these photos — Barbie reflected, flowered, and fried.

-Lenny Gerard


High-Traffic International SOLO SHOW In the Works w/ Dab Art Co.

About Dab Art Co. 

In 2011 Yessíca Torres opened H Gallery + Studios in Ventura, California. As co-owner and chief curator of H Gallery, Yessíca’s contemporary and modern program was a clear break from the conventional art scene that surrounded her. H Gallery’s progressive gallery design and ambitious exhibition schedule were received with immediate regional success. Her program made H Gallery one of the most prevailing contemporary art spaces in the greater Los Angeles area.

With the revelation that art exposure should not be limited by physical location, Yessíca independently established Dabster Arts Inc. (Dab Art Co.) in 2014. This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers in and outside the gallery setting. Dab Art embraces the relentless evolution of contemporary art by featuring experimental artists, highlighting innovative techniques and utilizing technological advances.

Since its initial launch, the Dab Art Co. has expanded from simple gallery exhibitions to art publications, artist talks, panel discussions, video profiles, exhibition videos and documentary filmmaking; examining the process and identity of artists. Now in her 11th year, Yessíca has galleries in Ventura, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Austin and opening soon in Miami (Dec 2022).

Dab Art Co. Gallery Exhibitions and our Online Exclusive Exhibits garner views into the tens of thousands. Our long standing partnership with the online art sales platform ARTSY has proved to be an invaluable resource. With buyers from 130+ countries and an average transaction distance over 3,000 miles, ARTSY has provided the connections needed to grow our collector base. Our partner platform receives 2.2 million+ unique visitors every month across web and mobile which means artists and exhibitions featured by Dab Art Co. are well-positioned for optimal collector visibility.

Gallery in Austin, Texas comes to a close. Featured art piece "BarFbie" from Vanity Series gained much attention and sold outside of the exhibit. Successful promotion indeed. It was great that this gallery was in a row of museums and galleries next to and during SXSW which heavily increased exposure on my work. Thank you Sí Gallery, again for the opportunity of a lifetime!

"PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO NOTICE"

Gallery Show in Downtown Los Angeles

Published January 20, 2022


OPEN: FEBRUARY 26 - APRIL 23, 2022

334 SOUTH MAIN STREET, LOS ANGELES


The Dab Art Co. is pleased to present PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO NOTICE at their Main Street Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. The title and concept their 8th annual photo exhibition in Los Angeles comes from a quote from Arthur Fleck in 2019's JOKER film. PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO NOTICE; is an observation that Arthur makes about peoples reaction to transition from insignificant and average to the menacing joker realized at the end. His transition into the sinister version of himself is mimicked in the chaos of the public's unrest of their current economic and social plights. Eerily similar to our current climate of unrest due to the pandemic, in-spite of personal setbacks Arthur realizes his true self and takes form.
