Emerging Los Angeles artist Jorin Bossen will be holding an open studio to showcase recent oil paintings Saturday, February 21, from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at 2605 Brighton Ave., Los Angeles.
Best known for his cowboy paintings, Bossen’s open studio will be held in conjunction with his group show at the Torrance Art Museum, Manifest American Mythic: Contemporary Art and the Old West, which runs from January 17 to March 7. As a figurative painter, Bossen mixes figuration with abstraction and uses a combination of sheer washes, pastel pencils and oil paint to reimagine modernist archetypes and pop culture images. Roland Reiss, the influential California artist, professor emeritus at Claremont Graduate University, and the artist’s mentor, describes Bossen as “an outstanding painter with a potent grasp of the power to be found in contemporary images.” This is Bossen’s first open studio and will debut a number of paintings not previously seen by the public.
Bossen’s work has been exhibited in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC and is in private collections across the country. His artwork has been featured in national magazines, most notably on the cover of New American Paintings. He earned his MFA from Claremont Graduate University.
