Santa Monica artist Haleh Mashian introduces LUSTER, a new collection of action paintings featuring non-traditional impasto techniques to be exhibited at Mash Gallery June 29th through August 10th.

You and your guests are invited to attend the private reception of Luster, taking place at Mash Gallery on Saturday, July 13 opening from 7 PM to 10 PM. Please RSVP here — EventbriteFacebook

Haleh Mashian follows up her figural collection, Figurine, with LUSTER, and shares, “LUSTER represents abundance, joy, and the poetry of nature. I added three-dimensional qualities where you might lose yourself in the composition. I wanted the viewer to have the opportunity to explore each piece, much like a Zen moment you may have experienced while taking a walk into the forest appreciating all of her gifts.”

LUSTER captures many different moods of the forest, and offers a variety of unique surface applications presenting the many colors and textures of the four seasons.

Every painting in LUSTER is an artistic journey expressing solitary application of glitter, metallics, and natural elements.

Haleh Mashian composes her collection through a series of quick actions, moving around each painting, applying a variety of materials onto the surface, before a final application of glass-like resin. Each painting becomes a lyrical poem preserved for the ages.

Mash Gallery presents Luster by Haleh Mashian June 29th through August 10th located in the heart of the Los Angeles Arts District.

This contemporary art event is free to the public and street parking is available.
