Out and About in LA Launch LA Presents “Point of View” A Group Exhibition

Launch LA is proud to present Point of View, a group exhibition featuring Katrin Assmann, Ryan Molenkamp, Sandy Rodriguez, and Edward Walton Wilcox. Point of View examines the perennial genre of landscape as each artist presents a contemporary interpretation to both urban and natural settings.

May 27 – June 17, 2017


OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, May 27th, 7 – 10pm

RSVP Essential to:


Ryan Molenkamp, “Sound Cascade 17″, Acrylic on panel, 20 x 30” 

Ryan Molenkamp’s work is rooted in the landscape of the Northwest. Almost structural in his approach, Molenkamp’s paintings resemble graphic illustrations, or tiled mosaics of paint. These complex surfaces study the formal properties of line and color that build up the natural landscape. The propensity to build structures on top the desert’s natural beauty, and the corresponding shift in our perception of these landscapes, is also an important theme that permeates Molenkamp’s work.

Ryan Molenkamp is an artist from Seattle.  His subject matter is largely informed by his interest in landscape, geology, and development.  Molenkamp earned a BFA from Western Washington University and has exhibited in the Seattle area. He has also exhibited in New York and Portland. Molenkamp was awarded a residency at Jentel in 2012 and has had artwork and writing published in Art Ltd. Magazine, Seattle Magazine, and City Arts Magazine. 

Katrin Assmann, “California Mansion”, Oil on canvas

Katrin Assmann’s misty landscapes and organic, subdued palette reflect a uniquely Californian atmosphere. The softly blended layers of paint create a visual effect reminiscent of old Polaroids and materialize the fleeting images of nostalgia and memory. Assmann moved to Los Angeles in 2003 and began using her growing collection of vintage found photographs from the vast flea markets of Los Angeles as inspiration. Katrin explores the imagery of a bygone California; a world very different from her hometown in Germany.

Katrin grew up in Essen, Germany where she studied Illustration, art and design at the famous Folkwang University. “I feel an optimism and ease of living we didn’t have when I grew up in Germany. I work with layers of diluted oil paint to create a sense of a glorious but lost past just as a photograph that captures a fleeting moment and then fades over time.” – Katrin Assmann

Sandy Rodriguez, “Washington Blvd”, 24 x 36″ 

Sandy Rodriguez’s paintings are quintessentially Californian. Palm tree silhouettes stand amidst the atmospheric fog, fire, sunsets and sunrises of the Los Angeles skyline. Immensely saturated, Rodriguez captures billowing blue clouds set against a violet sky, and the prismatic orbs of refracted light during a midnight drive. Each painting is a vision of Los Angeles, and exudes the essence of moving through the city.

Sandy Rodriguez a third-generation Chicana painter and independent educator who investigates the methods and materials of painting across cultures and histories. I was born in National City, California in 1975 and raised across San Diego, Tijuana, and Los Angeles. I grew up experimenting with the ratios and techniques of oil painting passed down from the three generations of Mexican and Chicana painters in my family.

Edward Walton Wilcox, The Brilliant Dream, Bitumen and tempera on panel

Wilcox represents the continuation, if not evolution of the multi-talented Renaissance man, achieving an absolute mastery of craftsmanship across a vast array of mediums and disciplines. Though his Gothic and Neo-Romantic technique betrays a romantic affinity for the legacy of his craft, Wilcox’s sepia toned, hi-chiaroscuro technique captures idyllic, imaged landscapes that are both captivating and disquieting.

Wilcox’s work has shown in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Seattle, and Berlin, and has appeared in publications such as The LA Times, Juxtapoz, Coagula Art Journal and FLAUNT Magazine. His work can be found in private and public collections across the United States and abroad.

Realist Artist Roy Tabora finds inspiration through the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands

ArtQuench Introduces Artist Roy Tabora

Tabora continues the legacy of generations of artists who populate his family tree by capturing magical moments of the tranquil beauty of the Hawaiian Islands

Roy Tabora was destined to be an artist. Born into a family of painters, young Tabora was brought up in a world where art was a way of life. Under the watchful eye of a loving uncle, his hand was skillfully trained to reproduce what his heart saw. Those early days as a studio apprentice fueled his desire to elevate his art to one day stand among the works of the finest, past and present. By the age of twenty, the years of training and discipline had produced a highly accomplished realist painter. His quest for excellence continued with a formal education in fine art from the University of Hawaii. Today he is recognized as one of the world’s leading seascape painters.

Born on June 18, 1956, Tabora continues the legacy of generations of artists who populate his family tree. Growing up surrounded by art and artists, his earliest memories are of watching the creative process in action. His lessons in the disciplines of drawing and painting began almost as early as he can remember. During his youth, he was directed by his favorite uncle, Rick Gonzalez. As with all apprentices, his days were occupied by sweeping floors, cleaning paint brushes and preparing painting materials, as well as receiving expert training in the traditional techniques of the old masters.

Already an accomplished Realist at the age of twenty, he opted to continue his education, starting at Washington State University, and receiving his degree in fine arts from the University of Hawaii. He was soon discovered by Hawaii’s leading art galleries and has since risen to great renown as one of the finest seascape painters in the world. The splendor of Hawaii’s tropical shores is a constant source of Tabora’s inspiration yet in his creative process, he relies even more on his heart than he does on his eye. “I romanticize,” he says. “The scenes I portray are memories I have imagined…memories of when the footprints of men were not so prolific and deep. Nature alone is the subject of my work. Its allure is exquisitely pure; That’s what I wish to convey. I see Hawaii’s land and sea as the essence of beauty itself. It reaches to me with a richness of emotion that I simply must express.”

Tabora’s work is magical with a remarkable glow that seems to shine from an inner light. His colors are all at once subtle and intense. He achieves this through a long and painstaking process of layering and glazing. Tabora begins with a wash of turpentine and color. Then using oils, he under-paints the image. This is followed with five to ten applications of colors he calls transparent, each to bring out a greater sense of depth or tonal value. Each layer builds luminosity and light within the transparent waves. Highlights and glazes complete his paintings, resulting in works that enter our minds and become our dreams.

Tabora’s art strikes a chord deep within, sending us to a mystical place where our imagination is free to wander amid our fondest memories. Ultimately we arrive at a moment of tranquility. To capture these moments and share them with his viewers–this is the artist’s highest aim and this is the true essence of Roy Tabora’s unforgettable seascapes. His original paintings and limited editions prints are highly prized by collectors for their irresistible qualities of majesty, mood, and meticulous perfection.

ArtQuench TV Presents Artist Kathy Curtis Cahill

ArtQuench TV is Pleased to Present

Artist Kathy Curtis Cahill

Kathy was the winner of the ArtQuench TV Contest. The ArtQuench TV production crew met with Kathy and has created this video showcasing Kathy’s incredibly moving images and the telling of her heartfelt back story.

We Introduce “Memories and Demons”


Kathy Curtis Cahill

After being educated as an art teacher, I moved to Los Angeles and became involved in film and television. I worked in the Art Department as a Set Decorator, over 30 years in this capacity, garnering an Emmy Nomination in 2001. I retired in 2011 and now pursue photography full time. My subject matter is varied, I pursue what interests me at the moment, but all of my work reflects my extensive background in the artifice of the entertainment industry, telling a story non verbally, with the actors still off stage. I prefer to use mannequins and dolls as stand ins.
