Wes Lang “Sittin’ on a Rainbow” Exhibition @ Chateau Marmont Recap

Wes Lang’s “Sittin’ on a Rainbow” was a one-evening presentation at the Chateau Marmont,

Wes Lang’s “Sittin’ on a Rainbow” was a one-evening presentation at the Chateau Marmont, featuring the Brooklynite’s intricate drawings, each executed directly onto the Hotel’s stationery. These pieces, all produced during the artist‘s month-long stay in room 34 at the infamous Hollywood Hotel, provide a visual journal of his experience there, and reveal the contemplative effect this sojourn had on his work. The imagery took on several different themes: bird illustrations, reminiscent of vintage wildlife plates as in Time Will Tell, 2011; meticulously rendered nude or partially nude women; almost exact replications of the Hotel’s logo in pencil; and acrylic and somewhat morbid depictions including skeletons and skulls. These drawings both demonstrate the artist‘s range of visual interests and his technical aptitude.
