BLACK AND BLUE
Ryan Bubnis and Lucas Irwin
Opening Reception - Saturday June 1, 7-10pm
Show runs June 1 - June 29
Black And Blue began with the simple prompt of two friends creating bodies of work that featured a cohesive, limited, color palette. Within these constraints Ryan Bubnis and Lucas Irwin work through a series of new drawings, paintings and sculpture. This exhibition explores themes of restraint, resilience, friendship, collaboration and mark-making.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Ryan Bubnis’ work has been described as “modern folk.” Through his paintings, illustrations, design and mural work, he comments on themes relating to the human condition.
Working both traditionally and digitally, he incorporates a range of mediums that include found objects, paper, wood, canvas, aerosol, acrylics, cel vinyl, Papier-Mâché, graphite and India ink. He draws inspiration from life, love, graffiti, folk and outsider art from a variety of cultures.
Bubnis has collaborated with a number of commercial clients and his work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the U.S. and abroad. He is currently an Assistant Professor at The Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
Lucas Irwin is an artist, designer, and maker best known for his work in the world of designer toys and helping to launch the genre-creating, indy DIY Magazine Readymade. Influenced by the urban landscape, architecture, heavy machinery, instructional manuals, schematics, and popular culture, Lucas builds complex images by weaving together and dissecting these references. His work has been exhibited across the U.S., U.K., and Japan.
