Fans of the late actor Harvey Korman may be interested to know that his artistic gene has been handed down to daughter Laura Korman, a Los Angeles native.
Mr. Korman passed away in 2008, yet his films like “Blazing Saddles” and his landmark TV ensemble work on “The Carol Burnett Show” have held up beautifully, making him a most missed creative talent in Hollywood and beyond.
After growing up in the background of Hollywood, Laura took her three years as gallery director in Santa Monica and has now parlayed this experience, opening the Laura Korman Gallery in the largest art gallery complex on the West Coast, Bergamot Station Arts Center.
Laura Korman Gallery’s first public opening commences with the exhibition of Mirror Mirror: Introspective Reflections showcasing the works of Los Angeles based artist Katherine Rohrbacher.
This exhibit explores the power of perception and the indistinct line between one’s self and one’s public persona. Rohrbacher, who is dealing with Lupus, explores the disease and its profound impact in a series of arresting self portraits.
The exhibition is on view from August 5 through September 19, 2015 with a public reception on Saturday, September 5, 5-8 p.m.
Katherine Rohrbacher’s current body of arresting self-portraiture lead viewers on a tour of different facets of her identity. Color and pattern serve as vehicles of communication for vignettes of thoughts, memories, and experiences – a great source of which is Rohrbacher’s own daily experience with lupus, the commonly described “invisible disease.”
