Daisy Patton, "Untitled (Of Hoston)", 90 x 135", Oil on Archival Print on Panel, 2018

In this series, Daisy Patton uses American postmortem photography as a substratum for her paintings. These photographs are intended to commemorate the deceased and offer solace to those grieving. In the photographs Patton selects, ornate funeral parlor interiors and elaborate trappings—floral arrangements, religious symbols and decorative rugs—overwhelm the presence of a body. Patton enlarges found black-and-white postmortem photographs taken in the late 19th through mid-20th century and lavishly paints over them. Her application of shocking colors and extensive patterning vivifies the photographs. Raised painted surfaces appeal to the sense of touch and feel experience. Vines and floral motifs emanate from and enter into the bodies, suggesting cyclic journeys. Faces, folded hands and other photographic passages untouched by Patton’s brush bring into relief the corpse and personalize our relationship with the dead.

Given the immersive scale of Patton’s tableaux, viewers participate as mourners, both for those who have died and for our own movement toward death. This Is Not Goodbye encourages bereavement rituals and supports a public discourse on how we approach loss in American society.

It begins metabolically. Make a mark, stamp an impression on a page, press a thumb into clay. Repeat the motion until a line emerges, a shape begins to form. You keep at it. An imperfect machine, you still require rules to play. And so you make them for yourself. This shape; that palette; holes or no holes; words, or no words; to align with this material history or that. You’ve chosen your constraints and you search out their edges. Flaws are unavoidable, so you learn to account for variance. The line falters, the form leans, the mould collapses, and in that moment you consider your options – failure or a new direction. When following the latter, the line curves, the form changes and on you go exacting mistakes, layering them as scaffolding into something less than perfect and wholly personal. It is a game of your design after all. To win is to make your own trophies, trinkets and artifacts of experience. They are drawings. They are sculptures. They are reminders of the immense satisfaction in choosing your own struggle

Kelly Mansfield: Disappear

Kelly Mansfield shares with us a surprising correlation between the destruction and recreation of her artwork, to an exploration of our human experience of feeling disconnected. She questions what holds us together when we feel lost, what brings us back when we feel shattered? In the act of shattering and reassembling plaster fragments, rearranging surfaces around a found treasure, and applying paint to bring the treasure to life again, she connects to the mythology of Shiva Nataraja/The Lord of the Dance in order to better receive new inspiration. The found treasure, brought to life again, helps to reconnect us to an individual’s story. These treasures are reminders, a type of portkey that can transport us out of the darkness, find contact, and remind us that we are not alone. And so we go on, seeking treasures amongst the ruins to bring us back again. Disconnect and Connect, Disappear and Appear.

Pam Farris: Taking Flight

What does flight mean to you? Flight can take us towards something we want or to an escape far away. Flight can bring us back to our childhood or a peek into our future. Flight can comfort us or drive us crazy. Pam Farris will be exploring flight in two and three dimensions within the medium of mosaic. She is also not using frames and letting the artwork “take flight”.

Now Rhymes with Then: Works by Paul Gillis

Rule Marfa

July 13 - September 23, 2018

WHEN KINGSHIP ASCENDS TO HEAVEN
When Kingship Ascends to Heaven, 2018, oil on canvas, 40 x 40 inches


RULE Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Paul Gillis entitled Now Rhymes With Then. Colorado based artist Paul Gillis has spent his career contemplating and commenting on the cyclic nature of the human experience. Using anthropomorphic figures and culturally iconic imagery he creates complex and surreal narrative works that explore these ideas. Influenced by the Chicago Imagists movement, as well as the style of many underground comics of the 60’s and 70’s, his art has the feel of a comic book panel or the cell of an animated movie, inviting the viewer to build a storyline around each scene presented. Here, in the early 21st century, Gillis has watched the events and trends of our times as they echo similar periods throughout the past. In recognizing this re-enactment, he is drawn to a quote from Mark Twain, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes”. In his exhibition, Now Rhymes With Then, Gillis has developed a body of work with the same sense of familiarity and progression; pieces have similar subjects, motifs and content that appears to be telling the same tale. In actuality, they reveal how the ages of civilization and the stories we communicate are all expressions of our fundamental realization that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Paul Gillis was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1941 and was raised in Los Angeles, CA. After spending several years in the Air Force, he moved to Colorado in 1967 and received his BFA in painting from University of Colorado Denver in 1970 and his MFA in painting from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1976. In the 1960’s and 70’s he became associated with a group of significant Colorado artists working in Boulder who founded the counter-cultural movements of Drop City and Criss-Cross. In 1979, Gillis, along with several others, founded SPARK Gallery, one of the first artists’ co-operative galleries in Colorado, This gallery is still active today, making it one of the longest running cooperatives in the Western United States. Gillis’s work has been displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums including the Denver Art Museum, Boulder Center for the Visual Arts, Museum of Contemporary Arts Denver, and the Singer Gallery, Denver. His work has also shown in Santa Fe, NM; Austin, TX; San Francisco, CA and San Diego, CA.

A Conscious Surrender

Featuring: Anna Charney, Ben Strawn, Deidre Adams, Carol Browning, David Mazza, Sara Pittman

  • Opening Reception: Friday, July 13 from 5-9pm

A conscious surrender may appear as an anomaly, however in certain forms of art, especially of the abstract nature, the notion is almost necessity. To genuinely surrender opens up a dialogue with the blank canvas; allowing colors, forms & meandering lines to take the place of thoughts, a wordless narrative creates a visual dance. This group exhibition displays artists who have stopped struggling for a certain outcome, and have allowed their subconscious to be the driving force behind their final result.

“It is when I have completely switched off my will that my body and my nerves, my subconscious self, know best when and where to let the sand fall" - André Masson

Black & White, an Open Call Exhibit

In the annex: Savage Art by Heather Savage

Core New Art Space

July 12 - 29, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Friday July 13 from 6-9pm
BlackWhiteWeb3
Black and White is an exhibition that seeks to show art that has cast away the color system and focuses on the visual power of black and white; reflecting the innovative and contemporary in painting, photography, drawing, printmaking, mixed media and sculpture. This show was juried by Dr. Deanne Pytlinski, Art Dept. Chair at Metropolitan State University of Denver and features both regional and national artists. 

Heather Savage has always been drawn to art and the feelings it can convey. Having grown up in a “beige” middle class life, she matured and learned to use art to bring vibrancy into her life. Working on her BFA, Savage fell more in love with the process and being different. Intense contrasting colors and texture lure the viewer into a world where lies a dynamic tension between pretty and pain. Success lies in making the viewer take a second look.

CORE New Art Space was founded in 1981 as a non-profit contemporary art cooperative. It is comprised of 24 member artists and is located in Denver’s historic Santa Fe Arts District. Core provides professional gallery space to its members as well as to the broader arts community. Core offers additional opportunities to artists in the form of juried feature exhibitions. The mission of Core New Art Space is to encourage the exploration of new and different forms of expression and to promote to the general public the understanding of contemporary art.

Daisy Patton: Would You Be Lonely Without Me?

  • Also opening July 12 in the Common Space Gallery will be Vacant Spaces which brings together Virginia Diaz Saiki’s intricate etchings and block prints with the gritty beauty of James Green’s dye on raw canvas
daisy.jpg
Art Gym Denver is honored to present Daisy Patton’s new series titled Would You Be Lonely Without Me? in the Art Gym Gallery with an opening reception July 12 from 5 - 8PM. Would you be lonely without me? is a series of oil portraits depicting women whose deaths were directly caused by a lack of access to safe reproductive care. Abortion is a highly contentious issue and one that is debated today, making Patton’s series relevant and timely.

Patton’s practice is one grounded in collecting found photographs, and this new series is no different. She paints the photos she finds of these women, and hand embroiders their names below, harkening not only to the tradition of woman as a homemaker, but also with the idea life being a thread cut short. Spending hours of research to find the names, images, stories and descriptions of these women, Patton crafts a way to solidify their individual identities and memories, when all too often these women’s stories have been forgotten or buried in the history of this ongoing debate. In her artist statement for the series, Patton said “let us remember the women lost during this barbaric era [pre-Roe vs. Wade] and fight to ensure this history is not repeated.”

This series is for sale and 100% of proceeds from the exhibition will go to support reproductive justice organizations.

Daisy Patton is a working artist living in Aurora, CO. She received a BFA in Studio Arts from the University of Oklahoma with minors in History and Art History and an Honors degree. Her MFA is from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University, a multi-disciplinary program. She has completed many artist residencies, including one at RedLine Denver and another at Minerva Projects in Denver. She will also have her first museum solo show, Daisy Patton: This Is Not Goodbye, at the CU Art Museum at the University of Colorado, Boulder, open from July 19 through November 17, 2018.

Located at 1460 Leyden St., Art Gym Denver is a 17,000 sq. ft. creative workspace for artists and arts professionals. The Art Gym and Common Space Galleries are open Monday through Friday from 9AM - 6PM. For information visit http://www.ArtGymDenver.com.

In the last year, we have experienced a number of incredible celestial phenomena over the Rocky Mountains, including the Great American Eclipse and the Double Super Moons. Investigating the extraordinary quality of light these phenomena radiate over the high-altitude landscape, K Contemporary artist, Sarah Winkler, explores how this light effects our perception, depth, mood and experience.

The exhibition promises to entice the eye with majestic mountainous worlds, as it explores and contemplates the landscapes emerging and floating suspended in a peaceful dream-like state of consciousness.

“In each work, I employ a spatial technique in painting called "equivocal space", which alters depth perspective through color, composition and media to keep your eye engaged and journeying around the image. It is a way that conveys how we move through actual landscapes.”

Inspired by real life stories such as Leona Helmsley's dog Trouble, and Joan Crawford’s shih-tzu Princess Lotus Blossom, Fancy Tails was first conceptualised as a fictionalized short story about a bitter old woman obsessed with collecting shih-tzus, Fancy Tails transformed into a graphic novel and visual narrative about what happens to us when a once glorious life fades to one of sadness, loneliness, and frailty, as well as our obsession as a culture to stay young and beautiful. The paintings give a playful homage to archetypal images of the Madonna and Child, and reference a 19th century cliche of a young girl affectionately holding a small dog or puppy.

“Manifestation” - Paintings by Nicole Korbe

Artists on Santa Fe

  • 1st Friday Art Walk: July 3, 6-9 pm
  • 3rd Friday Artist’s Reception: July 20, 5-8 pm
NicoleJuly
Nicole Korbe’s abstract paintings ride the edge of imagination and reality. Her use of colors and non-traditional painting tools result in images redolent of natural landscapes or city scenes. Resulting visions evoke moods ranging from soothing to energetic to dystopian.

Nicole’s painting methods include adding multiple layers of pigments, scraping through to reveal layers underneath and an intuitive reaction when the image begins to manifest itself. This collection includes many of her newer pieces created in oil media, including oil pastel or oil pigments combined with cold wax medium.

Artists on Santa Fe is a gallery with working artists' studios located in the heart of the Art District on Santa Fe. It's an engaging environment where visitors can interact with professional artists and view work in progress.

Hello, my name is Jill, and I'm a fabric junkie.

It started 40 years ago with my love of vintage clothing, and the necessity of having to repair and alter said finds to fit me. I eventually and naturally moved into textiles, drapes, tablecloths, and fabric. Fabric is my biggest addiction.

Walking into a fabric store is still very dangerous for me — like I said I’m an addict. If I walk out of a fabric store empty handed, it is truly a victory. I have many, many, many, so many bins of raw fabric (textiles, cloth, vinyl etc.) just waiting for that perfect someday project.

Well, that someday is here! This entire show is made from the pieces that have been stored and artfully collected over my entire lifetime.

All pieces are hand cut, slowly and meticulously sewn using an industrial walking-foot sewing machine. Most of these pieces are one-of-a-kind as these fabrics are no longer in production.

I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as I had creating them. It’ll be hard to say goodbye to some of these works as the memories they invoke for me is over a lifetime. As we all know we must let go sometime.

Bruno Novelli, Pedra Azul, 2018, acrylic on linen, 70 x 58 in

David B. Smith Gallery is pleased to welcome back Brazilian painter Bruno Novelli for his second solo exhibition, Turmalinas No Céu. Spanning the main gallery and project room, Novelli expands on his visual language defined by luscious colors, tropical imagery, and collage -like layered compositions. Roughly translating to “tourmaline sky,” Turmalinas No Céu explores what Novelli terms a “tropical delirium,” a type of aesthetic utopia where imagery imbued with personal meaning materialize into paradisiac landscapes.

Exotic and yet familiarly primal, viewers can feel the pulse of Novelli’s nocturnal jungle scenes. Spider monkeys peer out from behind mountains of sliced agate, while glowing moons coax tropical flowers to bloom. Alongside scenes of fantastical rainforest flora, fauna, and celestial bodies, are smaller canvases that Novelli describes as invitations for introspective experience. In contrast to the spindly jungle scenes of the larger canvases, these smaller scale works deliver a powerful visual punch, many featuring hazy color gradients and slices of Brazilian gemstones sprinkled over the surface.

New Territory: Landscape Photography Today presents over 100 photographs by 40 contemporary photographers who take landscape as their subject. From the spectacular to the seemingly mundane, and from celebratory to critical, these artists surprise us with their often highly experimental approach to the medium. Their work reflects their perceptions of how we live in the world today, and how the choices we make now will shape the landscapes of the future. The traditional idea of landscape photography calls to mind mountains, meadows and coastlines. Today, “landscape” photography has grown to encompass scenes that show conflicts between cultures, or between nature and civilization, as well as inspiring views of wilderness. New Territory showcases artworks that look at these features and conflicts in new ways, and that challenge viewers to contemplate our complex relationship with the landscape.

New Territory: Landscape Photography Today is organized by the Denver Art Museum. It is generously funded by the Adolph Coors Exhibition Endowment Fund, donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign, and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Promotional support is provided by 5280 Magazine, CBS4, Comcast Spotlight, and The Denver Post.
