Considered one of Los Angeles’s most influential mid-career painters, Korty’s latest work assembles his signature strict formalism to create more colorful, animated, and humorous compositions. The results brings forth the appearance of cartoonish mouselike figures whose postures and expressions of fear speak to the current political climate.

Howl will run at Night Gallery from March 16 through April 20.
