Dream Juice
Lindsey Larsen
 
Dream Juice is a contemplation of things in nature, like humans and all the other physical things… but also things that aren’t physical, like an experience, maybe? I mean experience with a capital E.
Abyss
Ashley Whitt
 
Abyss explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Photographic collages and sculptural artist books are fabricated to illustrate the physical manifestations of anxiety and depression through the deconstruction of the photographic image.
Collages are made using a combination of alternative processes; lumen prints, chemigrams, and solvent transfers. To create the images, photographic prints are cut apart and sewn back together. Geometric and organic shapes mimic the patterns and phenomenons found within the universe. Abyss considers the correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.
May Project Spaces

Kelli Vance – ‘Sappers and Miners’ opens Saturday 5/13 at CWFA!

kellivance

Kelli Vance, Sappers and Miners, 2017, oil on canvas, 78 x 90 inches

EXHIBITION DATES

May 13th – June 17th

OPENING RECEPTION 

Saturday, May 13th

from 5 – 8pm

Kelli Vance
We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe
2017, oil on canvas, 60 x 36 inches

Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Sappers and Miners, our second solo exhibition with Kelli Vance, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, May 13th from 5 – 8 pm.
Sappers and Miners will include a series of large-scale paintings produced in oil on canvas. The exhibition will be on view through June 17, 2017.
Kelli Vance is known for her photorealistic paintings, which explore psychologically thrilling themes from voyeurism to assumed identity. Her work is primarily driven by complex narratives surrounding socially constructed notions of femininity that romanticize alternative forms of beauty.
Working from staged photographs, Vance enhances tension in the subjects of her chosen models through her painterly play with light and textures including hair, rope, cake icing, and wet skin. She muffles provocative shouts existing within her compositions by depicting only portions of their narratives, keeping actions hinted by the titles relegated outside the frame.
In the recent work of Sappers and Miners, Vance suspends her depictions of female figures in tantalizing situations, in favor of subdued rituals. An arsenal of occult magic follows her figures in We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe (2016) and Sun Eaters (2016) as they attempt to locate their locus of control in preparation for psychological battle. This sublime search for power is echoed by a palette of black and white, erasing any evidence of opulence from Vance’s earlier cinematic scenes. These new works summon viewers to seek serenity when reality becomes chaotic.
Kelli Vance was born in Garland, Texas receiving her BFA from the University of North Texas in 2005 and her MFA from the University of Houston in 2008. She was included in the 2009 Texas Biennale, in 2014 she was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, and in 2017 she received a Houston Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant. Vance’s work has been shown widely across Texas as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Mexico.

Cris Worley Fine Arts is located at: 1845 Levee Street # 110, Dallas, TX 75207
Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm and by appointment.

May is Black Men’s Month at SDCC! One Step Ahead Reception May 12 & Black Men’s Film Festival May 19 & 20

SDCCMay2017

One Step Ahead

Opening Reception
Friday, May 12, 2017 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Artist Talk
Sat. June 17, 2017 3:00pm – 5:00pm

One Step Ahead is a joint exhibition by Lyndon Barrois Jr. and Kahlil Robert Irving, that excavates a pivotal period of American culture and politics, examining loss as a stifling of progress. Reflecting on the affects of the assassinations of Civil Rights leaders Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., Barrois Jr. and Irving mine cultural iconography, both celestial and terrestrial, presenting metaphorical and juxtapositional gestures that bring historic concerns into our present condition. Through both traditional and inventive strategies of making, One Step Ahead draws from the eponymous 1967 song by Aretha Franklin, which touches on time and the inevitability of heartbreak where love is concerned. In acknowledging two lives, two assassinations, and two directions of thought towards the progress of Black life in the United States, the artist hope to prompt past, present, and future reflections on mortality, while working to translate their perspectives into alternate ways of understanding identity and protest.

Seven Songs for Malcolm X
Produced by the Black Audio Film Collective
A Film by John Akomfrah

An homage to the inspirational African-American civil rights leader, SEVEN SONGS FOR MALCOLM X collects testimonies, eyewitness accounts and dramatic reenactments to tell the life, legacy, loves, and losses of Malcolm X.

Featuring interviews with Malcolm’s widow Betty Shabazz, Spike Lee, and many other, SEVEN SONGS looks for the meaning behind the resurgence of interest in the man whose X always stood for the unknown.

“What makes Seven Songs so provocative is that Akomfrah shows respect for many different interpretations of Malcolm, suggesting that this revolutionary figure belongs to everybody.” —The Chicago Reader

James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket
Producer/Director: Karen Thorsen, Producers: William Miles and Douglas K. Dempsey

The life, works and beliefs of the late writer and civil rights activist are recounted: what it is to be born black, impoverished, gifted, and gay in a world that has yet to understand that “all men are brothers.” James Baldwin tells his own story in this emotional portrait. Using rarely-seen archival footage from nine different countries, the film melds intimate interviews and eloquent public speeches with cinéma vérité glimpses of Baldwin and original scenes from his extraordinary funeral service in December 1987. His close friends and colleagues — even critics — illuminate the narrative, among them writers Maya Angelou, Amiri Baraka and William Styron, plus entertainer Bobby Short. James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket was originally broadcast August 14, 1989 on AMERICAN MASTERS

JM Gallery Presents: Ceramicist Linda Gossett April 22

LindaGossettgateway

Join JM Gallery Saturday, April 22, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring ceramicist Linda Gossett.

JM Gallery is pleased to present a collection of porcelain assemblages by Linda Gossett. Starting with a curious cache of found objects, Linda recasts and playfully reassembles her material into talismanic figurines that appear both familiar and absurd. Mass-produced, plaster tchotchkes become refined collectibles in the style of 18th-century European ceramics—refined but nonsensical, as hands emerge from birds’ breasts, shoes grow out of a duck’s head on a deer’s body, and children’s legs run away with an eagle. This is an imagery of contrast meant to challenge our preconceptions. Where we normally expect to see cheap plaster knickknacks, we see light, fragile porcelain; but then, where we expect to see elegant subjects, we see new forms of absurdity and incongruity. With such contrasts, Linda questions cultural values—what do we value, what do we desire, and where does the desire for possession enter the conversation? As she explains, “I offer my art as a springboard for the imagination.”

 

ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible.
