Vesod and Morten Andersen are two painters who refuse to let time stand still. While the former works with figures that seem to move like slowed-down frames in an animation (Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase comes to mind), the latter fractures abstract forms that seem to shape-shift before our eyes. Currently on view at LA’s C.A.V.E. Gallery, Vesod and Morten Andersen’s two-person show “Remix Every Second” is an exploration of the ways the two artists can distort viewers’ experiences and even perhaps make them reflect on their perceptions of reality. Take a look at some opening night photos from “Remix Every Second” and see the show before it closes on September 6. More on Hi-Fructose

Since Kamea Hadar and Defer collaborated last February on a mural in Honolulu for Pow Wow Hawaii, the two artists have joined forces in the studio for a new series of paintings currently on view at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco. Hadar’s portraiture and Defer’s otherworldly calligraphy complement each other almost seamlessly, as demonstrated by their most recent joint effort, “Paradise Lost.” Read more on Hi-Fructose

James Roper processes the chaos of urbanity with his multilayered drawings. A simultaneous ode and social criticism, his latest body of work fixates on a cast of archetypical LA residents — an artist, a porn star, a gang member, a homeless “bag lady,” a celebrity publicist, etc. Roper’s exhibition “The Insceding Spiral” recently closed at Mirus Gallery in San Francisco — his first solo show in two years. Read more on Hi-Fructose.

Setting soft and supple nudes against graphic patterns and textures, Brooklyn-based painter Sharon Sprung utilizes the tension between abstraction and realism to appease her own inner dichotomies and create art that expresses emotional complexities. But unlike many artists who muddle the polarities of figuration and abstraction into ambiguity, Sprung leaves them distinct, engendering a contrast that intensifies the impact of each.
