This summer, some of Germany’s most noted artists are lending their talents to two high-profile productions at prestigious music festivals. In late June, Georg Baselitz furnished somber and mournful sets for Pierre Audi’s production of “Parsifal” at the Munich Opera Festival. Meanwhile, in Bayreuth, the husband-and-wife artist duo, Neo Rauch and Rosa Loy, are working on the new “Lohengrin” overseen by the American director Yuval Sharon, which is set to open the annual Wagner Festival on July 25.

But if you do miss it, at least give Jonathan Lyndon Chase a chance. Entitled Sheets, the show (up from July 4 -14) is the artist’s first solo foray in the realm of L.A galleries. With work that highlights the sort of distortions and abstractions of form that Francis Bacon would approve of, Chase’s emphasis is on the day-to-day existence of queer black men, and the obvious complications that come with declaring oneself to be in the forever oppressed and unforgiving mores of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

There’s a lot going on in Jonathan Lyndon Chase’s chaotic paintings of gay black men, often in sexual congress. They capture the inchoate feelings of intertwining oneself with another body, but they also reflect a raw engagement with fragmented facets of gender, racial and sexual identity.

Jonathan Lyndon Chase does not paint self-portraits. But in every stroke and atom of his prismatic, distressed and lyrically visceral mixed-media portraits, the artist embodies his own sense of self, both literally and figuratively constructing complex aspects of personal identity right before your eyes.

Coinciding with his new exhibition, Sheets, at Los Angeles’ Kohn Gallery, queer artist Jonathan Lyndon Chase has shared some of his evocative pieces with Out. Using base sheets as a canvas for many of the show’s works, Chase explains how our beds are central to our lives in that we begin and end our day in them, and how they act as a play on words for him representing the fabric of society and spatial reality.

Jonathan Lyndon Chase, “Sheets,” at Kohn Gallery. In ebullient works that meld painting, drawing and collage, Chase explores quotidian moments in the lives of queer black men — sculpturally contorted figures shown in repose, in heated moments of desire and in balletic occasions of joy.

The figures of Jonathan Lyndon Chase’s pictures have prepared a performance for us — but we’ve stumbled upon them during rehearsal. Theirs is a dance of shapeshifting voyeurism — they’re not quite ready to be seen but relish in our gaze nonetheless. Caught in a moment of nudity between costume changes, they cast coy glances that are accusatory and inviting at the same time.

As a painter, Mark Innerst is an intimist of spectacle. The closely held visual language of quiet French domestic scenes — think Édouard Vuillard or Pierre Bonnard — is relocated into the modern, usually urban American public sphere, where it blows up into a showy pageantry of anonymous pomp and circumstance.

In many ways, painter Mark Innerst could be considered a contemporary modernist. His works align with American painters like Charles Sheeler and Joseph Stella that were active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who celebrated cities and industrial societies.

Like a huge butcher’s mallet, a slab of silvery architecture seems poised to crush a multilevel aggregation of urban commuters, cowering in a bluish, semi-dark tunnel. This painting, “Strata,” shows a rare intersection between the two principle worlds of painter Mark Innerst, who is showing 28 new works at the Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles.

In the 1980s, a decade when artists commonly appropriated styles or imagery from earlier art historical periods, Mark Innerst became known for beautifully crafted natural and urban landscape paintings that gave new life to the American tradition of the romantic sublime.

Few artists capture the awe and beauty of the built environment like Mark Innerst. His gleaming, vertiginous skyscrapers, sometimes abstracted into pure shape and color, reflect a love for both painting and urban life reminiscent of the affection paid to nature in more traditional landscape painting.

I was introduced to Company Gallery through Troy Michie — the brilliant collagist featured in GAYLETTER Issue 8. His very first solo show — Fat Cat Came To Play — was picked up by the gallery soon after some of his collages found themselves on exhibition in the New Museum’s well-received Trigger: Gender As a Tool and a Weapon.

Most of us might respond to the idea of a nuclear attack by diving under a nearby table. But ever since the first mushroom cloud entered our consciousness, many artists have taken a far more considered approach to the notion of human-triggered annihilation.
