Join current AIA|LA Gallery artist Daniel Eli Dornsfield for a reception at the AIA|LA Gallery.

Daniel Eli Dronsfield is an Artist, Experimental Filmmaker, Investigative Journalist, Explorer, Activist, and Poet, who has worked in 30 countries, concentrating for the last four years on a residency in Los Angeles.  
    
His work is as eclectic as Nature and flows between Painting, Photography, Sculpture, Video Installation, Re-contextualizing Landscapes, Live-Action Experimental Art Comedy, and Place-Making.  He is one of the foremost pioneers of Forrealism.

*In a blatant violation of one of the most profound tenets of Forrealism, this show represents the first time these works will be for sale to the public.

About the Show

"The City That Sleeps."
This grouping of portraits seeks to explore ideas of Exterior/Interiors.  In a long tradition of Los Angeles and London street artists eventually taking their works to Gallery, this exhibition seeks to alter interior environments (both physical and mental) through the act of bringing what was once outside, in.      
These are prints that normally would be pasted on the side of a gas station or on temporary walls of construction sites and allowed to become part of the environment, rained on, sun-stained, and wind-buffeted.  
The method combines photographic work, elements of decoupage, as well as abstract painting, all actualized on building materials.  
These works are part of a larger concept piece wherein some will be used to frame the interior of an entire sculptural installation.
                
"Grime."
These pieces are close-up studies of textural patterns that are completely unique in their existence in nature.  Urban accidental petroglyphs.   
Much like the rainbow of petroleum in a puddle in a parking lot, with the right kind of eyes, we can find the sublime in the grime on our streets.  This element of the show celebrates and camouflages the filthiness that paints the streets of our fair city (Los Angeles).  
These pieces also represent  part of a larger conceptual work, as all the prints are actualized on paving tiles, some will eventually be cemented onto a floor as a permanent installation in an as yet undecided location.
