Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present our third solo show by Los Angeles-based artist Clive Barker, whose fine art is only one of his accomplishments, alongside with his globally successful projects in film and books. In "Imagining Man", Barker turns to photography - he has shot many thousands of images of men over several years. For this show 50 images have been selected, in editions of 10 each. "Imagining Man" highlights Barker's fascination with manipulating and eroticizing identities and forms, and creating new characters from the raw material of flesh, light and paint.

A full color catalog, published by the gallery, is available for sale for $15, and includes the full selection of all 50 images in the exhibition. A catalog signing event will be held on December 12 from 2 to 4 pm .

In the Project Windows, Richard Ankrom returns to BGFA for the second time with "Water and Power," a neon installation which uses electricity and light to mimic the movement of water lapping on the shore. Bright and exuberant, Ankrom brings one of Los Angeles's signature tropes, Owens Valley Water, to a metaphoric central location in the heart of Downtown.

All gallery events are free and open to the public. Exhibition information, press releases and high resolution images may be found at the gallery website at
