“Immediate gratification,” were the first two words Moross used to describe what it is like to work with watercolors. “Unlike oil, watercolor cannot be fixed. There is no room for mistake,” says Moross about why she prefers working with watercolor rather than oil.
Ramone Muñoz, owner of Space House, along with colleague and artist Peter Liashkov, both professors at Pasadena Art Center College of Design, have selected work from Moross’s collection to exhibit on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 4-8 p.m. and Oct. 27 from 1-6 p.m. in the newly renovated and historical landmark built by renowned Textile Artist Maria Kipp, located at 3425 West First St. Los Angeles, CA 9004.
“Lena is completely authentic. When I look at her work, it resonates with sensitivity while capturing a moment,” says Muñoz,
Other hosts of “American Postcard” include scientist Elena Zhukova, musician Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age), designer Carrie Livingston, Paper or Plastik Café owners Yasha and Hanna Michelson and Muzeumm founder and director Mishelle Moross. Together, these talented entrepreneurs have collaborated to make Moross’s guest list remarkable, which will include art collectors, art dealers, curators, inventors and designers.
Muñoz met Moross when attending one of her foodie art events she hosts once a month called The Last Supper Thing. These events are held in her studio, which she shares with her husband Aleksei Tivetsky, a sought-after art restorer in the West Adams neighborhood in Los Angeles. Moross created such a strong impression on Muñoz that he graciously offered to have an art show at his space, a dream come true for her. Muñoz states that this exhibition is an exclusive offer for Moross. “Lena’s work evokes the novel, “Remembrance of Things Past” by novelist Marcel Proust,” says Muñoz. Then went on to compare her work to artist Stephen Prina and poet Constantine P. Cavafy.
The two-day event is opened to the public. For more information on Lena Moross and her art visit her website at muzeumm.com.
