HOURS
Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

Through installation, sculpture and printmaking Sean Caulfield’s work considers the ways our envi- ronment is transformed by forces of urban and industrial growth. The visual images and environ- ments he creates blur boundaries between the biological and the technological, the organic and the mechanical; they challenge viewers to consider the implications of this merging.

“Central to my work is the role that society, community and the individual has in the moment of change. Focusing on broader themes of mutation, metamorphosis, and regeneration involving both the landscape and the individuals that inhabit it, I aim to raise challenging questions for viewers about the role they play. Ultimately, my work focuses on the idea that crisis and change – whether it be environmental, political, or personal – can be a significant and positive catalyst for rebirth, growth and courage.” Sean Caulfield

Flatbed Press is pleased to present New Cuban Color: Prints by Limonta, Mederos, and Valdes in the O2 Project Gallery space. Organized by Alfredo Felipe Valdes, works in this exhibition utilize the human form as a symbolic vehicle to explore moments of human experience: birth, death, love, or the idea of origin and guilt in our Western tradition. From the intricately textured collagraphs of Isolina Limonta to the expressive and painterly monoprints of Yordanis Garmendia Mederos and Alfredo Felipe Valdes, this exhibition captures a wonderful glimpse of the contemporary printmaking happening in Cuba today.

Spanning Finland and West Texas, Common Language consists of site-specific land-based installations documented by large scale photographs printed on aluminum, a twin-screen video projection, and a limited edition, hand bound artist book housed in a portfolio containing an original artwork.

In addition to this monumental collaboration, the exhibition includes individual works on paper and sculptural kinetic jewelry by Davidoff and Thiewes, respectively.

A special viewing of the Common Languages twin-screen projection will take place throughout the evening of the Artist’s Reception.

Suzi Davidoff’s multi-media works on paper explore themes of structure and perception of the natural world, often incorporating found organic materials collected on walks within the West Texas Chihuahuan desert.

Rachelle Thiewes creates jewelry that is designed to engage and challenge the wearer, making them an active participant, an initiator of sounds and body rhythms.

Mayhem, Method & Medium

run-through-the-jungle-web72dpi

Mike O’Brien’s two-dimensional works are a unification of sculpture, painting, and photography. He creates abstract dioramas upon a 6 foot by 2 foot tall stage where compositions are built using paper and canvas pieces he has painted or drawn upon, then torn, warped, and crushed. These manipulated paper and canvas pieces are arranged into compelling scenes that are photographed and printed. The process of transforming two-dimensional space into three-dimensional space, and back again in the final printed image is a theme that O’Brien embraces. “I like the questions that arise from the finished print. What kind of space is this? Where is the background? I like the energy that the twisted paper and fabric imply. Some forms remind me of dancers at a honky tonk and at the same time take me back to my boyhood hunting turtles and snakes along the bayous of Texas and Louisiana.”

O’Brien began his mixed media work during his time studying fine arts at the University of Houston. Following his time at UH he relocated to Austin and became a sculptor for the Texas State Parks and Wildlife Department. Over the next 23 years he fabricated everything from life-sized plastic house flies to eleven foot high mammoths cast in bronze, crisscrossing the state learning its rich and varied natural and cultural histories. Following a devastating automobile accident in 2013, O’Brien returned to his interest in mixed media artwork, bringing to his studio practice the specialization and interest acquired during his time as a sculptor, specifically his time constructing dioramas. “When finished the dioramas become worlds unto themselves where time stops and all action is frozen. I realized that I felt the same way about these dioramas as I did about my abstract multimedia artwork.

Scorch and Drag | Prints and Sculpture by John Robert Craft

John Robert Craft, sculptor and printmaker, possesses an innate interest in ferrous metals, used
to create an inseparable dialogue between his two and three-dimensional work. His sculptural
work is abstract, solid and heavy, influenced by studies in geology and the metallurgy of his
choice medium: ferrous metals. Within his printmaking practice, these solid cast-iron sculptural
pieces are utilized as tools to create minimalistic abstract images that map the energy and
direction of the sculpture across the printmaking substrate, iron or wood, while documenting the
sculpture’s mass, movement, and form. They create nebulous images on paper, suggesting
both at the same time a microcosmic view resembling particle movement or a larger
macrocosmic approximation of stellar movements through space. Scorch and Drag will exhibit
several mid and large-scale sculptures alongside the monotype and relief prints they were used
to create.
Jack’s most recent project with Flatbed, the Fire Etching Suite, will also be on exhibition in it’s
entirety. This work consists of two diptychs, one tetraptych and two oversized individual prints.
The suite is a study in intaglio of the degradation of ferrous metals through the use of heat and
oxidation.
Join us for this wonderful opportunity to see John Robert Craft’s sculptures and prints exhibited
together. Scorch and Drag runs from June 17 to August 27, with an opening reception the
evening of June 17th from 6-8pm.

ARTIST’S RECEPTION May 20, 2016; 6-8pm
CLOSES June 30, 2016

Flatbed Press and Gallery 2830 East MLK Jr Blvd Austin, Texas 78702 HOURS Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

Flatbed Press is pleased to present Out of La Romita, the third biannual exhibition of work by past participants of Flatbed Press’s “Italian Intensive” summer workshop at La Romita School of Art located at Terni, Italy. The workshop, taught by Suzi Davidoff and Katherine Brimberry, has been offered since 2011.

The show serves as a reunion for the artists who already know each other as well as an expansion of the La Romita network in forging new relationships. On exhibition are works either inspired by the La Romita experience or other works by the artists who have traveled there. Sending work or traveling to Austin to show work are artists from Australia, El Paso, Dallas and Savannah. The inherent content and connection is the people, the place, and the experience of the intensive itself.

Dan Lambert, acoustic guitarist from El Paso, will be providing entertainment for the evening. Dan has performed extensively and is well known both as a musician and restorer of rare vintage guitars. He will be accompanied by percussionist, Chris Serrano, also from El Paso.

The show will be opening the same night as De la Complicidad con la Agresión, an exhibition of works by Miguel Aragón. Join us for an Artist’s Reception the evening Friday, May 20 from 6-8pm.

De la Complicidad con la Agresión | Miguel A. Aragón opens May 20 at Flatbed Press

Retrato_18_web

Flatbed Press is pleased to present “De la Complicidad con la Agresión” (April 15-June 4), a collection of recent works, including a site specific installation and new publications with Flatbed Press, by Miguel A. Aragón. Join us for an Artist Reception the evening of May 20, from 6-8pm.

Aragón is a native of Ciudad Juárez, a primary battleground in the violent war between rival cartels and law enforcement agencies for control of the drug trade into the United States. Thousands of people die in drug-related violence every year in México. Content for Aragón’s images comes from photographs published by the media, in print and digital format, depicting crude and raw forensic evidence. Aragón’s work is derived from a need to find meaning in these brutal events that reposition the corpse in one’s field of vision, reminding us that our physical existence is finite. By using metaphors and visual metonymies to tie together process and subject matter he explores the idea of perception, memory, and transformation.

“Beginning with the idea of erasure as language, I concentrate on the use of processes that are reductive in nature. Any form of erasure, however violently destructive, can be seen as constructive in some way; something comes through the destruction, the negation of an image is not actually nothing. It is my intention to transform the image, through erasure, from crude and unbearable into a more beguiling or subtle way of presenting these disturbing images. The void thus creates a space that nurtures the memory of what was before, engaging the viewer with a more intricate experience of the image. What I am looking for, as a result of these deletions is not to forget the horrific crimes these images convey; rather, I am searching for an understanding of what has happened by acquiring a sense of catharsis.”

Flatbed is located at 2830 East MLK Jr Blvd in Austin, TX 78702. Hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm and Saturday, noon-5pm. Call 512-477-9328 or visit www.flatbedpress.com for more information.

Public Figure 2 web

Flatbed Press is pleased to present Hard Luck Honky Tonk (March 15-April 30), an exhibition of fine art screen prints from iconic Houston-based gig poster artist and graphic designer Carlos Hernandez. An opening reception will take place the evening of March 18, 6-8pm.

From small town honky tonks to big city dance halls, the same type of hard luck personas are found. Carlos Hernandez deftly blends these iconic characters with his own style of metal make-up, masks, skeletons, or rock and roll horror, bringing forward their otherwise hidden hard luck stories and honky tonk dreams.

Carlos will have a selection of his gig poster and commemorative flatstock included in this exhibition. He is an award winning graphic designer who has worked with companies such as Austin City Limits and St. Arnold’s Brewery. He is a founding partner of Burning Bones Press, a full service publisher and print studio in Houston, Texas.
