Offramp Gallery is pleased to announce a solo show of works by Los Angeles area artist, Carlo Marcucci, from March 8 - April 19, 2009. The opening reception will be Sunday, March 8, from 2-5pm.

Carlo's minimal, geometric, wall-mounted sculptures are crafted from wood and exquisitely skinned with everyday objects that you would not expect. Dried pasta (spaghetti, udon noodles, mugwort soba and even Spaghettios!), staples, and mechanical pencil refills are among the objects that texture and color the works in a surprisingly beautiful way.

Many of the works in this show are from Marcucci's well-known Wheatfields series, of which he says: “With this body of work I use a common edible item, such as spaghetti, to challenge the viewer’s preconceived notions about food – by transforming its characteristics and its use.”

Offramp Gallery is pleased to announce Susan Sironi: Altered Books, a solo exhibition of works by the Los Angeles area artist, from March 8 - April 19, 2009. The opening reception will be Sunday, March 8, from 2-5pm.

Susan starts with ordinary books and transforms them by carefully cutting through the layers of images and text to create very personalized, one-of-a-kind artist's books. The resulting objects fascinate by their complexity, architecture and depth. The five altered books that comprise her "Flower Arrangement Books" series, all start from the same illustrated book on flower arranging. One becomes a three-dimensional pastel quilt (see photo at right), while another becomes a fantastical 3-D paper flower arrangement.

Offramp Gallery is pleased to announce Joyce Dallal: Wave, the reprise of a 2007 site-specific installation to be installed in the library, from March 8 - April 19, 2009. The opening reception will be Sunday, March 8, from 2-5pm.

Dallal says of Wave: "This large paper sculpture backs into a corner and forms a wave-like shape flowing from the top of a wall to the floor. It is printed with excerpts from newspaper articles about refugees fleeing the violence of the Iraq war, and is a play on commonly used journalistic terms regarding war such as 'wave of violence, wave of bombings, wave of refugees.'"

Joyce has recently returned from New York City where her installation, Descent, is part of a two-person exhibition, “Flight”, an exhibit of sculptural installations on the theme of war and peace and its human consequences and implications, at the United Nation's Visitor Gallery.
