The relationship between artist and viewer is an interesting and intriguing one for an artist to draw inspiration from. No Trespassing is a collective artist exhibition featuring a pop artist, a photographer/videographer and expressionist painter all exploring "the notion or concept of emotional availability between the artist and viewer." The show brings together an eclectic mélange of works from three artists garnering an increasing amount of attention. In fact, London's The Independent recently mentioned photographer/videographer Hal Samples' still-in-the-works, not-yet-funded film about Tachowa Covington, the homeless man who lived in an abandoned water tank in Los Angeles for years until it was removed after graffiti artist Bansky painted "This Looks a Bit Like an Elephant" on it. Jonathon Kimbrell's pop art is just as likely to feature Lucky Strike cigarettes and Coca Cola as it is John F. and Jacqueline Kennedy or Batman and Robin. And expressionist painter Kevin Fougerousse's paintings features narrative imagery mixed with bold colors and wild shapes, figures and lines. No Trespassing runs through August 12 at The Cameron Gallery, 1414 Dragon St. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
