L.A. Stories

A Collaboration Between Thomas Mueller and Samantha Scherer Exhibition Dates: February 1–March 15, 2008 Opening Reception: February 1, 2008, 6–10pm L.A. Stories contrasts personal realities with the images that Hollywood creates. Taking its form from story telling and drawing, this exhibit features drawings by Scherer, created from stories of real events—a mustard fight between Jack Black and Kyle Gass, Nicholas Cage buying cheap gas at ARCO, standing behind Bishop Magic Don Juan at the Hollywood post office—as told by Müller. Through emails and telephone conversations, Scherer draws her interpretations of Müller’s experiences combined with her own vicarious impressions of Hollywood and Los Angeles. Drawn on sheets of paper embossed by Müller from the streets and sidewalks of L.A., each drawing gives a literal imprint of the city, stains and all, over which a new reality is constructed.
