Emily Davis Adams’ current show at CB1 Gallery includes just one painting, a rendering of the newly legendary rock that currently sits behind LACMA. Called Levitated Mass and conceived by land artist Michael Heizer, the 340-ton rock has been a conversation piece since before its 11-day journey from a Riverside quarry to the museum three years ago. Is it majestic? Underwhelming? Does it even look as though it’s levitating in the way it was supposed to? In Adams’ portrait of the rock, the trench it rests on is absent, and the behemoth does appear to levitate, floating against blue sky. There’s a bench in front of the painting, so you can sit and meditate on one artist’s modest take on another artist’s monolith for as long as you like.
