On Stage, Upstairs at 500x Nov. 5

Tim Best and Tom Leininger bring together two diverging points of performance for a two-person show in the Upstairs Gallery at 500X in Dallas from November 5 through 27. Opening Reception Saturday November 5th from 7-10pm.

Tim Best, a Dallas based artist, stages dramatic emotive scenes. His work presented is from his “making a scene” project that includes photography, video and a book release. The setting is blackness as if it were the mind void of thought. Then a spotlight illuminates a figure doing nothing but expressing emotion, that uniquely human behavior that inspires both constructive and destructive action. The drama is about to unfold but instead of live performance, Tim Best captures this with a still camera. He used a list of 49 emotions found on Wikipedia to call out emotions that the actor spontaneously improvised under the spotlight. Total focus is on the facial expression, the physical gestures and the wardrobe flying through space in crisp detail. Drama itself and the process of creating drama is the subject of Best’s work.

Emotion drives Best’s work. “In my experience, it is the root of all drama. In this body of work I direct actors and models through a sequence of emotions. Rather than assume the role of observer in a dispassionate way, I choose to actively set up these performances in the studio. The resulting photographs are surreal, subconscious reconstructions and rearrangements of ‘reality’ that come out of the experience of improvising the emotions. The chiaroscuro of the spotlight illuminating the figure in the darkness implies a tension between real life and the imaginary.”

Tom Leininger is a Denton based photographer whose work is rooted in reality and based on private moments individuals are able to carve out for themselves at public events. The color photographs are found rather staged. They are part of his ongoing series “Sidelines”. The events at which the images were first made may have been staged, but the images are not about the events, rather those on the side who are watching.

“The event brings people together, which becomes the fodder for me to explore,” Leininger says about the work. “I am not interested in the place or the event, but rather how all of these different events add up to one big staged show in which the script is written after the event.”

Tim Best and Tom Leininger can be contacted for more information. Best can be reached at 214-531-3857. Leininger’s phone number is 940-230-0110.

OPENING Nov 5: Matt Clark, Bruce Monroe, Tim Best & Tom Leininger

500X PRESENTS:  Nov 5-29, 2011 

Opening Reception: Nov 5, 7-10pm

In the MAIN GALLERY-


Golden Triangle, marker on paper
Matt Clark–  Golden 

New work by Matthew Clark explores what is underfoot with an installation of sewn felt works that reference the repetitive nature of road construction, the beauty of utilitarian design, highlights the spaces between pedestrian and vehicular designation as well as lays the groundwork for the viewer’s own personal journey in regard to the popular culture of the past.

Meditation II, cast urethane rubber
Bruce Monroe– Variations on a Theme  
 

AIDS forms the core of my being and therefore the core source of much of my work.  In an attempt to dominate the virus while bringing peace, strength and order to my life, I make prints, photographs, and objects about its structure, pathology, and relationship to the human body. Seduced by the beauty of its viral spread throughout the smallest parts, systems, and resulting whole of my body, I envision their symbiosis in my work. My work engages and implicates others, not only through the virus itself, but issues generated from and through it.

Besides its physical impact, AIDS possesses social, political, and financial implications that have become virtually invisible in contemporary media discourse and among the general public. Paradoxically, such misconceptions offer inspiration for my work, particularly in the struggle against the presumed obsolescence of a virus that remains quite real. My work counter-proposes the notion that AIDS art is a late 20th Century genre and I intend to fill a niche that I feel is under explored today by reigniting the ongoing battle with AIDS as a valid and re-examined contemporary subject matter.

Tim Best and Tom Leininger- On Stage

Tim Best, a Dallas based artist, stages dramatic emotive scenes. His work presented is from his “making a scene” project that includes photography, video and a book release. The setting is blackness as if it were the mind void of thought. Then a spotlight illuminates a figure doing nothing but expressing emotion, that uniquely human behavior that inspires both constructive and destructive action. The drama is about to unfold but instead of live performance, Tim Best captures this with a still camera.

Tom Leininger is a Denton based photographer whose work is rooted in reality and based on private moments individuals are able to carve out for themselves at public events. The color photographs are found rather than staged. They are part of his ongoing series “Sidelines”. The events at which the images were first made may have been staged, but the images are not about the events, rather those on the side who are watching.

Texas Painter Alexandre Hogue

Through Nov. 27 is a wonderful art exhibit at the Ft. Worth Museum of Science and History.  It’s entitled,  Alexandre Hogue:  An American Visionary.  This man was a dynamite personality who was born in 1898 and rose to national attention when Life magazine ran a several page spread of photos of his paintings of the dust bowl.  Hogue lived in Texas for 40 years.  He never went to college and was artistically basically self taught but was still head of the art department at Tulsa University for nearly 20 years.  He was always able to support his family with his art and when in his 80’s and 90’s he painted beautiful large paintings of the Big Bed area of Texas.  He was painting one when he died in 1994 and this one is in the exhibit.  He has paintings in the Georges Pompidou in Paris, in New york, in many museums around the country and of course, in private collections.  I’ll quote from the book “Alexandre Hogue:  An American Visionary” by Susie Kalil,  “Throughout his life, Hogue remained outside the mainstream of American art; his paintings were always ahead of their time.  Still, Hogue stuck by his innermost belief:  a sense of life within the earth that endures despite man’s ravages.  Each series–from the hauntingly beautiful Taos landscapes and prophetic canvases of a dust-covered Southwest to his depictions of the fierce geological phenomena of the Big Bend–serves as a paean to the awesomeness of nature.”  The staff at the Museum of Science and History were excited to get this exhibit, as they host exhibits that relate to science or history and they felt Hogue’s ahead of his time concerns with man’s treatment of nature were appropriate.  This is the first time that all of the Big Bend pieces have been exhibited together since 1984, although it wasn’t a complete set at that time since they hadn’t all been painted.  Although Alexandre Hogue is my great uncle, I feel I’m fairly objective in thinking this exhibit is outstanding. –Roberta Ferguson
