November Meeting

Friday, November 20, 2015

Guest Artist:  TOD LYCHKOFF

TOD LYCHKOFF is a Los Angeles-born, Southern California-educated artist who has lived and worked in the heart of downtown Los Angeles for the last twenty-five years. His studio/gallery is now located in the center of this lively re-emerging community.

Southern California’s information rich, culturally diverse and rapidly changing urban environment has inspired and informed Tod's work. His art has become a fusion of drawing, painting, photography and various application processes which incorporate the very by-products of our society.  Through the use of collage, information such as phone books, stock reports, circuit boards and barcodes become part of the visual record of my evolving style, which relies on “stream of conscious” exploration.


"The art has been left open to interpretation,
through which I hope to reveal the nature of my world and myself."

2015 Scholarship Winner: Victor Brazeau

Victor Brazeau wil be entering his senior year at California State University, Northridge.

His fascination with cast off and discarded items, and his interest in exploring the ideas of nostalgia, strength and fragility, are evident in his work. The sculptural assemblages Victor creates from salvaged materials and remnants of peoples' lives are both soulful and dynamic.

Victor's interests in art, technology and sculpture are combined in a proposal he is preparing for LACMA's 2016 Art & Technology Lab. His project is a hybrid of sculpture and user interface that is composed of the personal effects of people who have passed on. An online interface will allow friends and family to upload images into a digital collage that will be displayed over the sculpture. Victor will use the scholarship award to help fund the prototype used in his proposal.

The Scholarship Committee will begin its 2016 Scholarship candidate search after the first of the year. The winner will be announced at CAA's Annual Meeting May 20, 2016.
