Every now & then, we come across an artist who creates multi-layered works. These unique works sometimes can be a challenge when they quite literally ‘stick out’ amidst the other pieces in any given exhibition. More often than not, works like this have been known to overwhelm other, flatter, 2-D works. So what’s a gallery to do?
Our solution is ‘Dimensional Faux Show’ where we gathered four of our finest ‘off the wall’ artists to hang together. Brad Albright, Erin Curry, Nick Glenn and Clint Scism all tend to create their works above, below or beyond the surface with great care and craftsmanship. The images these four put forth are equally intriguing as they are stunning. There’s no doubt it takes a special breed of artists to take their work so serious that a single surface is not enough to convey their image. Come see for yourself when this show opens, Thursday, November 10, 2016, 6:00 – 9:00
Brad Albright is a freelance illustrator, graphic artist, and merchandising designer whose line-based illustration style draws influence from underground comics, classical engravings, rock posters and album covers alike. Presented in retro 3D with red/blue glasses, Albright’s newest series invites viewers to enter dense concert crowd scenes while imagining their own personal soundtracks
Nick Glenn, Texas artist that works in reduction. Combining elements of woodworking, printmaking, and painting to create multi-layered works of a classic influence.
Erin Curry has a collegiate background in Organismal Biology and is a self taught artist. She works with ink on watercolor paper and wood panel to create pieces to be hand cut and ultimately collaged within a shadowbox format. Erin travels extensively to art fairs across the country to exhibit and sell her work.
Clint Scism is a Texas artist, illustrator, and graphic designer. Scism specializes in layered illustrations using ink, tea-stain, and water color to show his subjects, their inner workings and their backgrounds. Illustrated layers float above and below each other within the frame. Clint Scism also transforms his drawings into wire sculptures using copper and blackened metal. Clint classifies himself as a shadow dropper. Whether it’s wire or ink, the shadows and how the art plays with light are the constant themes.
