Artist JonMarc Edwards' invites you to FLUTTER, an extraordinary event at the SEARCH + RESQ Gallery located near the Brewery in downtown Los Angeles. FLUTTER is an immersive installation, where participants are spellbound to intermittent flurries of text, meaning and chaos. FLUTTER is an experience that connects both the visually stunning with the metaphorically inspiring. Earthy, humorous and wise, the conceptual installation visually asserts that language is an essential element; the fifth element, like air, water, fire and wind (and as ubiquitous.) FLUTTER empowers participants to interact and make sense of the linguistic fabric that is all-around us; concrete, profuse, disposable - unique!    

Early Nineties Painting

During the month of February, 2018

Upon my arrival in LA in 1990 I was committed to creating a visual form of writing, a legible Character (Ideogram) one that at first glance is abstract but upon closer consideration, decipherable. A journey and study of pictorial writing / painting (I see these two endeavors as inseparably linked) began. These early experimentations would eventually be known as Monosyble or Merge; an approach to painting that transforms composed writing into concise, legible pictographic landscapes. The early nineties / Monosyble work included in this exhibition are small to medium size paintings revealing the patience and methodical approach to written and pictorial content and structure.

These photos capture the moment of data breakdown, the instant the information becomes fragmented, a metaphor for our post-truth age where science, facts and reality are manipulated and purposely distorted to create confusion, doubt and fake news.  These abstractions represent a new narrative, one equally if not more powerful than the original.

The GLITCH photos are the result of transmission failure rather than any purposeful distortion; using magnets or software. Most of the images were gathered via network broadcasts, much of the subject matter is news, entertainment, weather and sports, our daily bread. I decided to forego the entertainment / celebrity portion of the images and concentrate on the formal qualities of the image; pattern, color and identity… or lack thereof.

This selection of eighteen images comes from a source material of almost 400 images. I hope you feel as compelled as I do by these images, the abstract nuisance and data breakdown, a metaphor for our current immersive state of corruption and instability.

Barney O'Brien

Opening August 27, 2016

Barney O'Brien


Opening August 27, 5 - 9pm
Join us at MARKET in Silver Lake in support of MAIDEN LA Saturday August 27th, 5 - 9pm for the opening reception of inside:outside, the work of Barney O’Brien.
  This is a great opportunity to see recent sculptures, paintings and works on paper by the downtown Los Angeles artist Barney O’Brien. Barney assembles, paints and transforms everyday discarded materials from the streets of LA into powerful vessels of geometry, self-reflection and expressive awareness. Through a convergence of intuitive painterly instincts and shear physical will, he pushes the boundary from profound to elegant whimsy. By working inside/out with his materials, O’Brien is able to simultaneously challenge the sensibilities of the viewer and breathe new meaning into otherwise disposable leftover.
  A Brief Bio of Barney O’Brien
After receiving a BFA from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Barney attended CGU in Claremont Ca. Through the eighties, he was a member of Newspace Gallery run by Joni Gordon. He exhibited solo and along with other notables of the stable including: Martha Alf, Chris Georgesco, St. Pierre Sid Gordon, Jay Phillips, Michael Falzone, Astrid Preston and others. He exhibited solo at the Klein Gallery in Chicago and Lelia Ivy gallery in L.A. Later that decade, O’Brien’s life was forever changed by an automobile accident that left him in a coma, near death and seriously compromised physically.
With his extraordinary desire to create intact, he found his way to the Santa Fe Art Colony. Where he has lived and worked for the past 25 years.

Brandon Krall
GIVEN, a live essay

May 3rd - 17, 2016

June 8 - 26, 2016

GIVEN by L.Brandon Krall

GIVEN – A live essay and installation by L.Brandon Krall inspired by the Readymades of Marcel Duchamp; Alchemist of Art & the Everyday.
On Tuesday May 3rd, 6 – 9 pm MARKET Studio by jonmarc edwards is pleased to introduce NYC artist L.Brandon Krall for an evening of visual stimulus and lively conversation inspired by the Readymade sculptures of the French artist Marcel Duchamp (1887 -1968). Krall believes the field of Duchamp studies has been dominated by male dominated psychological interpretations of the artist rather than through reexamining Duchamp’s own words and works. As a new generation of artists and scholars rediscover the metaphysical implications of Duchamp’s ouvre Krall discusses the many facets of this field of study through examples of her on-going studies and for MARKET; a new creative installation. Krall asserts that Duchamp was deeply anti-war, pro-feminist while rendering a level playing field in the interpretation of beauty and taste. Please come by MARKET and meet L.Brandon Krall and imbibe on the beautiful mind and art of Marcel Duchamp. The show will be open May 3rd - May 17th

The Debriti Show

About the Final Performance...

Actor Kim Rhodes from the TV series Colony, Supernatural and Key & Peele will be our special guest "Textualist" from 3-5pm to dispense wisdom and spark at MARKET in Silver Lake! Kim was amazing at our last performance and I expect a bigger turnout than the previous performance! JMe and special guests will initiate the immersive installation from 1 - 3pm with word play, demonstrations and inspiration all to be dispensed from our expert textualists and full service counters. Make sure you see this one-of-kind event before it moves on to other cities!

Final Performance ! Saturday, Feb. 6th 1-5p

DEBRITI represents a new relationship and understanding we have with text. Beyond the inherent “meaning” contained in letters and words, besides the myriad of arrangements and systems that utilize these graphic notations to communicate and emote, Texts also have “meaning,” “expression” and practicality in the concrete (physical) form. Texts have physical attributes that when properly used release energetic forces that can empower your daily life. DEBRITI is the conceptual form made physical.
How many times have you wanted to throw words back into someone’s face? (Use our Air variety of DEBRITI for this purpose only.) Toss “C-A-U-T-I-O-N” to the wind or gently lay some positive thoughts on the precipice of a mountain? Now you can with 100% all natural, recycled and biodegradable DEBRITI. DEBRITI’s counter sales force will prescribe what you need as they help you “choose your words carefully.”
The MARKET dispensary offers many varieties of DEBRITI and options to choose. Including their one-word packets, the “AIR” variety that flutters at a breath, the rare pink Emily Dickinson, or our standard bag of Green, Red or White 100% all natural DEBRITI. Ask our inspired sales force how you can get involved with the DEBRITI revolution, the new way to let words speak as loud as actions!
