Opening Receptions January 14th, 2017 | 7-10 pm
Livedalen500xTo Lisa, With Love
Rachel Livedalen
 
This solo exhibition by Rachel Livedalen features new drawings that combine images of idealized femininity through canonical works of western art history with her love of 1990s Lisa Frank stickers and ephemera.

 

Cravens500x
House
Lynne Bowman Cravens
 
Cravens is exploring the idea of memory and nostalgia by photographing her childhood home. She used appropriated family photographs to serve as the anchor for the series. After examining the precise locations in the house in which the original photographs were taken, she then re-photographed the same areas. The building has undergone cosmetic changes over the past several years, and has transitioned from being her family’s home to becoming a rental property. From images full of artifacts and mementos, to starkly empty spaces, the house becomes barely recognizable. This project not only focuses on Cravens’ memories of the house, but also on how the recent physical changes done to the building affect perception of the space.
Lorenz500x
rabbit holes, the descent
Seth Lorenz
 
Lorenz’ new exhibition is the second chapter in the body of his work “rabbit holes,”. He continues to use elements of the home and objects of memory to investigate the intricacies of the human psyche and its’ emotional aptitude to cope, confront and heal from trauma and suffering.
Escapes
Julie Libersat
 
Escapes, a solo exhibition by Julie Libersat, explores the aesthetics of public space with works that blur the lines between virtual and real landscapes. Using 3D prints and images from the video game SIMS, Escapes presents a landscape that reflects the ubiquity and homogeneity of a placeless cityscape. The built environment directs our orientations and cultural values through the meaning we construct around the buildings and places occupied within memory, dreams and imagination. Our cities, neighborhoods and buildings reflect our personal, cultural and political histories and imaginaries. How does the design of the built environment colonize space and nature to manufacture desire in the landscape of capitalism?
January Project Spaces 
Replicate
Ross Faircloth and Ashley Whitt
Ross Faircloth: As our lives are becoming more and more influenced and connected to technology I have become interested in how and where this is taking place and more specifically at the possible outcomes of the lines between reality and simulated reality blurring to the point of non-existence. Video game consoles are increasingly becoming more than just for games and are hubs of entertainment in many homes. Contemplating the amount of control given to machines over our daily lives the images serve as a haunting reminder that a simulated world can be just as fragile and manipulated as our ‘real’ one, if not more so. We should be careful to place too much blind trust in these imperfect systems. The images in this series are created through a Playstation 4 and the game Call Of Duty: Black Ops III ®. The images are either multi-layered or cut-up to create another level of separation from reality.
Ashley Whitt: Inspired by the readings of scientists including Lawrence Krauss and Steven Hawking, the focus of Ashley Whitt’s work is a questioning of existence and reality. Responding to the theories that a multiverse could exist, Whitt creates visual parallel realities within her work. The dichotomy of the vast versus the miniscule is explored through a variety of imagery including landscapes and self-portraits. How would another universe look? Is it possible for two or more realities to exist at once? These questions are explored through analog and digital photographic imagery that is manipulated and layered in Photoshop.
Assembly #1
Alex Heffesse
Curated by Lindsey Larsen
 
Heffesse is a one-man enterprise. An inspector of the manufactured landscape. With a questionable production cycle that terminates at the prototype, the sculptural objects mimic a proof-of-principle, meaning, a demonstration in principle with the aim of verifying practical modes of production. The prototypes, in some degree, serve to verify key aspects of society. Creating enigmatic narratives of man-made environments. Past, present, and future. The prototype is the only truth in a world full of disguise.

OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, October 15, 7-10pm

“Enfolding represents my research into the burgeoning field of Bio Art. The sculptures and paintings in this series are meditations. Existing somewhere between absurdity and scientific discourse, they act as analogies to the cross disciplinarian work and research taking place in the fields of art and science.”
– Val Curry, 2016

angelcabralesoperation
Angel Cabrales presents ‘OPERATION: AL PASTOR,’ an exhibition which places its focus on the social impact of Mexican culture and its recent presence in conservative politics. Cabrales satirically reframes the taco as a symbol of cultural power, reimagining “TACO” as an acronym for “Tactically Appetizing Culinary Offensive” that has successfully infiltrated American culture by way of American stomachs.

Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, who was born in British India, studied fine art in England, and first gained notoriety as an artist in 1970’s New York — garnering important solo exhibitions and museum shows — has been living and creating art in Dallas since 1995. For her long-anticipated, first-ever Dallas solo exhibition, Bradshaw-Smith presents Finding Daphne, a series of paintings in gouache and large-scale mixed-media fabric collage inspired by sensuous forms found in crepe myrtle trees.

OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, September 10, 7-10pm

Some may ask why I choose to live and work in the world of objects…
it is the only way I can think of to remold the crushing realities of life.

— Robin Ragin, 2016

Robin Ragin presents Upstart Crow, which came about as the artist was in the final stages of dismantling the studio of her mentor of 15 years, David McManaway, six years after his passing. Through deep contemplation, she considered this task to be his last lesson in the profound possibilities held within objects left behind by others, thus inspiring her latest series of assemblages.

IF  

NEW WORK BY MATTHEW BOURBON

August 27 – October 1, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 27th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm

 

matthewbourbon

Different Versions of You, 2016. 39 x 29 inches. Acrylic on Canvas

 

Dallas, August 2016

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is excited to announce our first solo exhibition for artist Matthew Bourbon, entitled IF. Bourbon’s paintings sit in an uncomfortable limbo between heady ideas and dumb form. “How to paint the things of life is a chronic issue that seems somehow relevant with how to actually be in the world,” Matthew states.  He is after a kind of painting that is filled with all the contradictions one sees in everyday life. The exhibition opensSaturday, August 27th with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00p.

Matthew Bourbon’s paintings exploit color and narrative, stirring convoluted memories that allow the viewer to compose moot stories.  Skepticism is the bedrock of his relationship to art. For the organization of this show the artist thought of creating and bringing work together, less to “say” one large thing, but rather like the range of songs on an old-fashioned music album.  Each painting he makes is a thing in and of itself and also shares company with the others.  He wants his art to embody a mystery of intent.  “I am assembling several puzzles without the comfort of a simple key or a concise guide,” he states.  Bourbon intends the paintings to push us back on ourselves, so we are left to reconcile what we see in the paintings with our own personal histories and experience.  That’s not to say there is no direction in his work—it is just found in some strange combination of his interests and the ebb and flow of the painting process.

Matthew Bourbon is an artist and writer.  Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Bourbon earned separate undergraduate degrees in Studio Art and Art History from the University of California at Davis.  Relocating to New York City, Bourbon earned his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts. Since then, his art has been exhibited nationally and internationally. 


 

SYSTEMS  

NEW WORK BY ASHLEY WHITT

August 27 – October 1, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 27th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm

An Ordered Chaos #27 (Nest), 2016.

Archival Inkjet Print, 20 x 20 inches in 32 by 32 inch frame.  Edition 1 of 5

 

Dallas, August 2016

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to announce our inaugural show in our project space for artist Ashley Whitt, entitled SYSTEMS. The artist will debut photographs from her new series, An Ordered Chaos. The exhibition opens Saturday, August 27th with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00p.

An Ordered Chaos explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Using a flatbed scanner as a camera, surreal environments are created using objects such as hair, thread, plants, and grid paper. These objects serve as symbols for order and chaos within each constructed image.

Tension and harmony between order and chaos exist within the self and the cosmos. These paradoxes include the order of the solar systems versus the exploding of stars, or the order of scheduling your day versus the chaos of traumatic events or depression. Eventually some scientists believe the universe will become dark and empty as the last stars die, before returning to chaos. Similarly, the feeling of the darkness of depression can empty the self before the chaos of confronting an issue. An Ordered Chaos considers this correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.

Ashley Whitt graduated from Texas Woman’s University where she earned her MFA in Photography in 2012. She graduated from UT Arlington with a BFA in Photography in 2009. Ashley currently teaches in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for Dallas County and Collin County Community Colleges. She is also a member of 500X, one of the oldest artist cooperative galleries in Texas. Her work has been shown locally, nationally, and internationally including Texas, Vermont, California, China, and India.

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is located at

3008 Commerce Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 in the Deep Ellum neighborhood.

Gallery hours are TuesdaySaturday from 12pm – 6pm or by appointment.

Spontaneous Symmetry

Spontaneous Symmetry is a group of paintings that suggest a twisted theory of everything, where a fragmented space exists in various states of activity. Disparate layers of media expose paint washes, graphite drawing, and soft brushwork. Each painting integrates an underlying axis of symmetry while subsequent layers of contrasting shape and color negate the initial simplification. This process-driven work seeks unification of oppositional elements.

Sheryl Anaya
Double/Standard

Double/Standard is an exhibition of photographs and site specific fiber installation.

Kalee Appleton
Surrounds
Surrounds: Viewers of photographs, particularly in today’s digital era, approach photographs with an air of skepticism. One of the most prevalent photographic techniques in the aid of this deceptive practice is the photographic backdrop, popular among pedestrian photography studios for decades. The photographs of idealized landscapes and utopian worlds become objects of transportation, portraying the subject in a halfheartedly illusionary light. These objects, used overtime begin to gain history of their own, due to mass production and repetitive use. Surrounds examines this history and transforms the photographic backdrop into something that it was never meant to be, a subject. By incorporating hints of photographic studio equipment and digital aesthetic fads, like repetitive gridded imagery on computer desktops, digital editing tools, nostalgia aids in creating a new history for the backdrop.

GRLPWR
 
GRLPWR is a group exhibition focusing on contemporary feminism, girlhood, and the impact of the 1990s Girl Power movement.  The works consider empowerment, but also kitsch femininity, and the overlap of the two.  Curated by Rachel Livedalen, the show includes the work of Jenny Harp, Gabrielle Roth, Hayley Fowler, Ashley Heber, and Breanne Trammell.

Making Marks

Making Marks: the rhetoric of design and design of writing is an attempt to reframe the discussion about writing, design, and imagination as it relates to our impulse to narrate experiences and ideas. It is a collection of images, texts, and processes curated by Michael Schueth and Jennifer Seibert as a collection of different artists, designers, authors, and makers investigating how image and text collide.

Will Moses: American Folk Artist at Irving Arts Center & Celebrating Irving Events

Will-Moses_from-Rip-Van-Winkle-e1458314950902

This special exhibition of paintings by Will Moses, great-grandson of the legendary folk artist, Grandma Moses is presented in partnership with the Irving Heritage Society. Born and raised in Eagle Bridge, New York, Moses creates paintings that reflect the quiet beauty of this tiny community nestled close to the Vermont border and depict a vivid, delightful world peopled with villagers who have stepped out of the past to charm us with their simple, everyday pastimes and seasonal activities. Original illustrations from Moses’s books The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle (based on Washington Irving’s short stories) are among the featured works.

Conversation with the Artist: April 3, 4 p.m. on the Dupree Theater stage followed by a reception and book signing. Free.

AfricanAmericanMuseumlogo

The African American Museum was founded in 1974 as a part of the Special Collections at Bishop College, a Historically Black College that closed in 1988. The Museum has operated independently since 1979. The $7 million edifice was funded through private donations and a 1985 Dallas City bond election that provided $1.2 million for the construction of the new facility. The African American Museum is the only one of its kind in the Southwestern Region devoted to the preservation and display of African American artistic, cultural and historical materials. It has one of the largest African American Folk Art collections in the United States.

Location: 3536 Grand Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75210
