AC Gallery presents Switch, an inaugural solo exhibition by american photographer Mark Dektor. Intimate portraits grant the viewer a shift in perception, offering an uninhibited look into the private BDSM life.

“Dektor’s photographs capture the vision of Robert Mapplethorpe’s ground work” Carlos Benitez, Gallerist

 Director and cinematographer Mark Dektor began his career in the advertising industry, but changed directions to fine art photography when fueled with a desire to fulfill an unrequited dimension in his creativity. A subculture of mystique opens up to Dektor’s lens, breaking down misconceptions and allowing others to witness the intrigue of BDSM purely. Power dynamics become visible with a vulnerability not often experienced. True personalities are exposed yet maintain the same level of credence. In essence, Dektor’s work becomes a showcase of pent up emotions to finally emancipate freely, becoming a visual delight for all to behold.

Mark Dektor will debut thirty-six black-and-white photographs and a 288 pages catalogue raisonné exploring multiple subject matter from his bulging archive, which features no fewer than 5,000 digital originals, at AC Gallery and within the recently completed White Cube exhibition space inside the gallery, a space dedicated to solo and collaborative long-term projects. A panel discussion on BDSM background and culture between participants in the scene is to follow on January 11th, 2019.

There will be a reception from 7–10pm on Saturday December 15th at AC Gallery located at 1546 Highland Ave., LA 90028 Admission is complementary with RSVP to: art@acgallery.us This exhibition contains sexually explicit imagery and may not be suitable for minors.

This exhibition was organized by AC Gallery and curated by Carlos Benitez, gallerist. All exhibitions at AC Gallery are underwritten by AC Gallery Fund. Support is provided by listed sponsors. This exhibition has been made possible by the endeavor of Mark Dektor.

Press release: BRIGHT by Linzi Lynn

AC Gallery presents an inaugural solo exhibition by artist Linzi Lynn. Flows of color playfully intertwine and meld, taking stage onto the surface of the canvas for lively theatrics to unfold.

“Lynn’s art reflects the traditions of the Golden Age paintings with makeover fantasies” comments Carlos Benitez, Gallerist of AC Gallery.

A native of London, Linzi Lynn came to the United States in 1992 after living in the South of France for many years. Lynn knew from an early age she was going to be an artist; however, she thought it was going to be as a performing artist. Her parents had sent her to theatrical school when she demonstrated as a young child, a talent for finding drama in the everyday. In 1973, Lynn began channeling her artistic creativity into the visual arts, especially painting. Her theatrical background helped her to be sensitive to the emotions of her subjects, which she was then able to transfer effortlessly onto canvas as both visual art and theater are forms of creative expression, inspiration, and entertainment. Expressionistic paintings characteristic of Linzi Lynn’s oeuvre, finished in exquisite polished brass frames will illuminate the White Cube exhibition space inside AC Gallery. Lynn will also debut her first foray into new media, vibrant sculptural works and a collaborative fashion showcase that give presence to her expressive subjects.

There will be a reception from 7–10pm on Saturday January 26th at AC Gallery located at 1546 Highland Ave., LA 90028 Admission is complementary with RSVP to: art@acgallery.us
