Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.


Downside Up - Art Show and Performance @ LMU

I am advocate for self-expression through whatever creative outlet brings you fulfillment... surfing, building motorcycles, painting, sculpting, juggling swords, interpretive dance, whatever floats your boat... just go do it. Anyways, a friend of mine is on the press committee for the student art gallery at my alma mater - Loyola Marymount University. I have seen some pretty talented artists over the years at the student gallery and it will definitely be worth a look.

LOS ANGELES, CA | Downside Up is the story of visual experience as seen by senior dance major, Loretta Toso. Works will be shown in the Thomas P. Kelly Student Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University from March 9 to March 23. The artist reception will be held on Friday, March 18 from 6-9pm.

A native of Simi Valley, California, Loretta Toso discovers her deep interests through her personal admiration of dance and photography. This blending of creative forms unveils a unique voice with an intriguing commentary on perspective. With an abrupt sense of humor and willingness to cross boundaries, Toso is driven to create works that present a vision of art through her own means.

Works to be displayed include photography and different, weekly live dance performances that explore movement and the relationship between the interpretations of environment. As a visual play on perception, Downside Up is a unique peek into a world of living upside down.

The Thomas P. Kelly Student Art Gallery is run and maintained by a student cooperative and exhibits art by students, faculty, and staff of Loyola Marymount University.
