  • love is an action word
    a solo exhibition of work by Tina Linville

    at the Duke Gallery, Azusa Pacific University

    Exhibition runs September 4 – 28, 2018

    701 E. Foothill Blvd.
    Azusa, CA 91702

    Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm.

    Los Angeles has hosted the Olympic Games twice in the past, in 1932 and 1984, and is gearing up to host again in the summer of 2028. Every time a large international competition takes over the news cycle, conversations about the nature of competition, international relations, and even social structures are opened. Tina Linville’s work opens a path to engage in similar discussions, but from a very different vantage point. Instead of thinking about the use-value of peaceful competition as a means to a diplomatic end, Linville’s work engages in an exploration of one of homo sapiens’ most essential attributes—humanity as engaged in creative play. From her elaborately constructed textile pieces resembling catchers’ jerseys, to first-place ribbons, to a scoreboard, she uses sport as a reference point. Rather than attempt to stick a flawless landing à la Gabby Douglas, though, Linville revels in the unruly and unpredictable nature of play.

  • Earthly Delights
    curated by Carol Shaw Sutton

    September 1, 2018 - October 27, 2018

    Opening Reception // September 1st from 4-6pm

    The Blackboard Gallery at Studio Channel Islands is located 2222 E. Ventura Blvd, Camarillo, CA

    This group of artists was chosen because of the sensuously crafted nature of their work, combined with their deep concerns for the future of humanity and the health of our planet. Media ranges from painting, sculptural installations, photography, ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, ceramic sculpture and fiber.

    The title was borrowed from 15th Century Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch’s iconic painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights” in which he surrealistically depicts man’s desires and human foibles while leading the viewer to some rather severe consequences of their actions. At that particular time in European history people were simultaneously excited, shocked and dismayed by discoveries of exotic flora, fauna and cultural practices found during global exploration and intervention. Their world was swiftly changing creating intense anxiety with its concurrent longing for certainty and control. This void was quickly filled by Church dogma, economic domination and expanded military ventures.

    During our current moment in history we are bombarded with mind bending discoveries from the outer reaches of the universe, to the almost complete global expansion of commerce that is simultaneously annihilating traditions and environments, technology’s rule of our lives, and like before, even though perhaps more intensely, these are challenging the core of human nature and are playing out at in ever more critical ways. Each artist included here, addresses views of paradise, sensuality and/or consequence of our actions. The work is also connected by the common thread of creation and destruction, as is the reoccurring theme of nature.

    Includes work by the following artists:

    Carrie Burkle, Jasmine Delgado, Yvette Gellis, Nancy Goodman Lawrence, Kiel Johnson, Sandra Klein, Tina Linville, Janet Neuwalder, Wendy Osher, Victoria Pearson, Fred Rose, Roxanne Sexauer, Jamie Sweetman, and Marie Thibeault

  • See-Saw, the work of Dan Callis and Tina Linville

    June 14, 2018 - July 26, 2018
    at Golden West College Art Gallery
    gallery hours: Thursday - Saturday, 10am to 2pm

    Dan Callis and Tina Linville have very different practices in mediums and histories. However, there are intriguing similarities in strategies, motivations, and concepts. The works are objects that archive conversations between process and material, structure and concept while exploring themes of representation and transformation.

    Fun on the floor is figurative and physical.

    We mean figurative as metaphorical, not figurative as in figures, although there will be figures, but most pieces of arts will be figure-less. In an effort to be fully transparent you should also know that fun on the floor isn't just metaphorical, it's also literal. There’s a lot going on--on the floor (but it’s fun).

    Soft.core.la, the artists, the guests, if we do our job properly, will be having fun, and there will be a floor present, that hopefully we will all be standing/sitting/dancing/strolling/posing on.

    There will also be some art on said floor, which is at 428 Hewitt St, which is fun.

    We have found, and hope you find as well, that it is fun to put art on the floor.

    There will also be, fun art on the walls, but fun on the walls is a bit unwieldy. These are artists who have fun within their practice, expect unexpected, new perspectives, and free beer.

  • Trapper Keeper was reviewed in Art and Cake! Check out the full text online, linked here.

  • Trapper Keeper is a group exhibition featuring work by Tina Linville, Annelie McKenzie, Dakota Noot, and Don Porcella, four artists whose works display fresh takes on contemporary figuration. While varied in their explorations, these artists share connection through their vibrant use of color, energy and humor; creating a fantastical world rich with hearts, stars, and a myriad of characters and creatures. Wielding kitsch like a glorious weapon, these artists elevate every day materials like pipe cleaners, glitter, rhinestones, stickers and beads to the realm of fine art. These pieces, unencumbered by any ties to pragmatic realism, allow humans, animals, aliens and hybrid forms to co-exist in a space, resulting in an environment that is at once florid, energetic, and joyously bizarre.

  • I'm excited to have a sculpture included in "Diverge/Convene: Contemporary Mixed Media” at the San Diego Art Institute from April 1, 2017 through May 15.

    The group exhibition “Diverge/Convene: Contemporary Mixed Media” highlights artists of all media working in the liminal spaces not easily defined by traditional collage or assemblage work. The artists in “Diverge/Convene” have all developed and share an understanding of contemporary collage as a medium and a genre, employing disparate elements through the use of materials and/or content. This exhibition celebrates artists both locally and nationally that are not only working in traditional 2D/3D mediums, but also in sound sculpture, video, photography, installation, and alternative processes. The exhibition is organized by Ginger Shulick Porcella, Exeuctive Director of SDAI, and Kate McNamara, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions for the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design.

    Selected artists include: Wick Alexander, Elise Amour, Sean Capone, William Crump, Patrick Dintino, Aaron Garretson, Tara de la Garza, Marina Grize, Ivy Guild, Greg Haberny, Jodi Hays, John Brinton Hogan, Alan F. Jones & Lissa Corona, Robin Kang, Davin Kyle Knight, Angele Lebert, Tina Linville, Elena Lomakin, Jessica McCambly, Bhavna Mehta, Carmelo Midili, Joshua Moreno, Margaret Noble, Edwin Nutting, Brianna Ortega, Sara Parent-Ramos, Scott Polach, Ryder Richards, Gwen Samuels, Ali Silverstein, Josh Slater, Eva Struble, David Willburn, Ricardo Yanofsky.
