National Award Winning Artist Ted VanCleave set

to Exhibit New architectural Photographic series

LA’s trendy ChopChop selected for exhibit to open Nov. 5


Los Angeles, CA – National award winning artist Ted VanCleave will open a new eight week solo exhibit on November 5, 2006 of his latest abstract architectural photographs at LA’s premiere salon/gallery, ChopChop on La Brea Blvd. Open through January 5 2007, VanCleave’s exhibit, a special selection of sixteen of his new photographic images titled “Structure: The Los Angeles Series“, captures Los Angeles in a bold and colorful new way that extends beyond representation to become brilliant, almost surreal abstraction. These highly stylized photographs offer an exciting new approach to fine art photography juxtaposing vibrant color and the geometry of LA’s architectural landscape.


“I created this new series to present architecture, which surrounds all of us, from a unique perspective, focusing on the details and form of structures,” states VanCleave. “Many buildings that may seem a bit mundane have details that are imaginative and visually stunning.  While this new series of images is about Los Angeles, every city offers hidden gems of architectural significance.”


Recognized for its unwavering support of accomplished local artists and photographers, ChopChop provides an excellent venue in which to exhibit VanCleave’s work. Owner, Darin Birchler, created the space specifically to fulfill his concept of integrating an art gallery and hair salon and even created mobile workstations that allow him to reconfigure the space and optimize the display of the art. ChopChop is unique in Los Angeles as a hybrid salon/gallery.


 “I’ve been a fan of Ted’s work for quite some time,” says ChopChop owner Darin Birchler, “and it thrills me to be able to hang his new works in the salon where our visitors and clients will be able to enjoy and study how he has so masterfully captured the city’s unique style of modern and postmodern industrial architecture. The vision of my hair salon to provide clients and friends with an artistically stimulating experience is fully realized by Ted’s work. They will love it.”


Apprentice to Suiki Lohr of Architects and Heroes in San Francisco, Darin Birchler has been an accomplished hair stylist for more than 18 years and operates ChopChop with 6 other stylists and colorists. ChopChop is located at 830 North La Brea Blvd. In Los Angeles. Visit  (http://www.chopchopsalon.com) for more salon information.


Ted VanCleave (http://tedvancleave.com) has received many awards and distinctions as both a photographer and painter. His work was selected by Laura Rosenstock, curator of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, to appear in the Faber Birren Color Award Show, and he was awarded Top National Honors from the prestigious National Watercolor Society.


High resolution images of the series are available for media by request.
