Tanner Goldbeck lives in a fairly intense part of downtown, but his temperament as an artist is well suited to the visceral energy of the neighborhood’s everything all the time rhythm of chaos and control. Like DTLA’s hurly-burly juxtapositions of historic architecture, street art, music, neon, wholesalers, colorful characters, danger and real pain, Goldbeck’s mixed media paintings and sculptures build and erase themselves using harmony and dissonance, dark humor and intuition, layers of material and the energy of movement. An exhibition including a brand new feisty and rather operatic monumental painting is currently on view in Glendale.
