Intimate Strokes at Coagula Curatorial

Notorious for its art, film and music, Los Angeles has been a cultural hub for some of the most visionary artists of our time.  No era has been more widely regarded and loved in Los Angeles than the 1980s, a decade that made way for new works breaking from the institution and home to a time in music that would give rise to the American conception of punk.  Fearless participant Mark Gash captured this era through his surrealist, bold brush strokes on canvas, painting the women who inspired and captivated both himself and the surrounding world.

Intimate Strokes is a survey of Gash’s work curated by longtime friend, collector, and performance artist Johanna Went.  Women punk rockers, singers, songwriters, models, actresses, artists, hardcore fans all reveled in the chance to sit for and spend time with Gash, a man who balanced the dichotomy between his macho audacity and the challenges of his poignantly fragile corporeal destiny with wit, charm, and grace.
