CURRENT EXHIBITION / UPCOMING
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 12th @ 7:30pm
Robert Olsen led a prolific career capturing the haunting underbelly of the nocturne Los Angeles cityscape. Alongside his considerable studio practice, Olsen taught painting and was a lecturer of art theory at the University of California Los Angeles, The Art Center, as well as The Critique Program. A retrospective of Olsen’s work was recently exhibited at The Luckman Gallery at California State University.
Olsen's paintings depict illuminated lone urban objects, set deep in the night, embodying our projections of anxiety and isolation. The ominous moments in Olsen’s cold, luminous scenes are signifiers of urbanization and impermanence.
The ephemeral quality of his work is forefront in our minds as we are faced with his untimely passing. We are left with the great appreciation for the renderings of Olsen’s remarkable perspective. Robert Lynds Gallery has the honor of continuing his legacy.

JAEDAN CHAYCE LEIMERT
The upcoming exhibition at the Robert Lynds Gallery will feature the work of Jaeden Chayce Leimert in his solo show ,‘In Advance Of’. A graduate of the University of Victoria, Leimert examines the slow breakdown and transient quality of memory. His carefully nuanced images are printed on supports that threaten the viewer with their own decay. Leimert explores the illusive nature of remembering with his series depicting world tragedies with fragile materials, where the viewer becomes invested in the struggle to see and decipher the work.
