Elizabeth Chiles will debut a new body of work in her upcoming exhibit at grayDUCK Gallery. The work is a departure for Chiles, writes Erin Keever : "Colors are more intense, even artificial, and there is a formality and conscious recognition of flatness. They are of course photographic, but are also constructions."

Elizabeth Chiles show opens Friday, April 13.

This is the last weekend to see Rino Pizzi's Photo/Montage 12 x 12 show. We are open today through Sunday, pleas stop on by. Photo: "smudge of ashen fluff" by Shawn Smith and "The Twelve" by Steve Wiman.

Elizabeth Chiles | Weave

Elizabeth Chiles | Weave

Opening Reception: Friday, April 13, 7-10pm Exhibition Dates: April 13 – May 20, 2018 Artist Talk: Sunday, April 29, 2:00pm Weave is an exhibition that begins with a central question of how to express visually various points of intersection of our lives and the breath, light and time that holds them. Works include natural pigment paintings made from wild flowers and grasses, and collages created from collections of images made as I move around an object, and then combine, reconfigure and shift them responding to the mind’s eye. Their final formats are determined by their relationship to place-making; finding and creating meaning within an environment. Weave’s programs include a workshop and performance entitled SEED/BED (part of Fusebox festival), by Julie Nathanielsz, a dancer, whose shared questions around body, perception and personalized place-making has shaped my thinking about the work presented in Weave. A poetry book release and reading will be held at The Contemporary’s Laguna Gloria. A workshop exploring multi-dimensional color, co-taught with artist and color theory guru Luanne Stovall, will take place in May at grayDUCK. Elizabeth Chiles spends a lot of time thinking about color and light. For her exhibition Weave at grayDUCK Gallery, she brings new paintings and collage that introduce her use of abstract color (color that is not representational, but based on perception, after image, and the effects of spectral light), as well as new formats, including wide formats that embrace the all encompassing nature of the panorama, and long formats that embrace two widely different but equally important references: sacred scrolls and wallpaper. During the run of the exhibition, dancer Julie Nathanielsz’s response in the dialogue will take the form of a solo performance and workshop entitled SEED/BED that focuses on ways of looking and the positioning of oneself in space. The movement, litheness, and natural themes of Chiles’ 2D works are accentuated by Nathanielsz choreography and activation of the exhibition space, which ultimately spills out of the gallery and onto East Cesar Chavez.

Artist Talk - Photo/Montage 12x12: A Rino Pizzi Project

Artist Talk - Photo/Montage 12x12: A Rino Pizzi Project

Photo/Montage (12x12) invites established, local artists to step out of their usual boundaries to engage in a complex dialog with a given concept. Each participating artist worked with the same set of twelve prints from Pizzi's recent photography to create a unique collage/assemblage using at least one element from all the twelve images, with no other restrictions or guidelines about form, size or aesthetic purpose. The collaborators involved are diverse in background and vision, and include visual artists Catherine Lee, Michael Anthony Garcia, Shawn Smith, Maya Lawrence, w. tucker, Peggy Weiss, and Steve Wiman; composer Graham Reynolds; graphic designer DJ Stout; architect Emily Little; writer Teresa Elliott; and photographer/filmmaker Robert Ziebell.

See y'all at 2pm today.

w. tucker - "the distance from here to there" In a curious way that was not completely apparent to me while working on my piece for this show, this project brought together two areas of my work – my regular studio work and college work that I do when I am not able to get into the studio. To me the piece, entitled “the distance from here to there”, speaks of a life, any life, and how one moves, consciously or unconsciously through that life.

Steve Wiman - "The Twelve" For anyone who has experience with a twelve step recovery program, the concepts of powerlessness, belief, humility, introspection, reparation and community are familiar. As the challenge of editing the 12 images, which were presented to me by Rino for this project began, so too began a year of extreme challenges and chaotic thinking. Sadness, frustration and depression seeped into my psyche. In the creation of this work, the exercise of choice, pairing and placement of elements served as a meditation on the Twelve Steps. In the resulting grid of images and orbs, I found a small bit of serenity.

"My self-defined task for this project was to somehow appropriate every inch of these twelve beautifully disparate images but to level their content, to peel away from each of them that one common photographic characteristic, mimesis. Said more simply, I wanted to extract subject matter while preserving passion and emotion. As artist, I wanted to cause all twelve given images to somehow occupy one space at one time, at a glance." - Catherine Lee "12 x 12, Unphotographing Things"
