“Los Trachas
Nov 16th – Dec 15th
FF-1051 Gallery, Los Angeles, Ca

Taking place at FF-1051 Gallery, “Los Trachas” is a collaborative exhibit featuring all new pieces completed in LA from artists Alison Mosshart and Danny Zovatto. “Los Trachas” is a vibrant and powerful intersection between both artists. From works across canvas to paper, lines jagged and crisp, to colors soft and arresting, Mosshart and Zovatto’s paintings draw the viewer in and don’t let go.

Alison Mosshart’s work is a catalog of observations, obsessions and interrogations of self and everyone else and every place she’s been. Lead vocalist for famous rock bands the Kills and The Dead Weather, she has spent the last 26 years on the road performing and living a predominately transitory life. She has a particular penchant for fast cars and complex characters — the car a symbol of power, protection, function, simplicity, easy beauty. Her people — ever in flux — are the opposite, often painted with dubious double, triple, quadruple features, emphasizing conflicting feelings, desires and agendas.

Danny Zovatto describes his art as his story, his search. His paintings are rich with color and feeling, happiness and despair. There is a color or a line for every thought and emotion he is driven by, a texture for every high and low, every curiosity, calamity and daydream. His works are large and enveloping, lawless and true. Danny Zovatto is a Costa Rican actor known for high profile roles such as his work in television in Here and Now and critically acclaimed horror movies It Follows and Don’t Breathe amongst much more. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
