STOP, COLLABORATE & LISTEN :: ICE ICE BABY APRIL 12 - MAY 31, 2019 | KAI LIN ART is pleased to announce our third exhibition of 2019 featuring the collaborations of Lela Brunet & Phil Harris, Jeremy Brown & Adam Podber, Joe Camoosa & Ryan McCullough, Fabian Williams, Miya Bailey, Blockhead, and also ice painter Kevin Palme. This exhibition is a collaborative featuring a diverse group of regional Southeastern-based artists creating work that reflects our current contemporary state of creativity.
Resident gallery artists Lela Brunet and Phil Harris collaborate on 3 new large scale figurative works that fuses their aesthetics into layered, pop-infused, bold portraits of female goddesses. Long time artist Jeremy Brown collaborates with Adam Podber on a group of pieces that combines graffiti, aerosol, graphic design and resin.
Joe Camoosa returns to the gallery with The New South III artist Ryan McCullough to collaborate on two dozen works on paper. Overlapping fields of color with interwoven geometric shapes and lines, Camoosa and McCullough merge their respective styles into an abstractly formal yet progressively fluid style.
Muralist Fabian Williams will be collaborating with 2 new artists to the gallery, Malika Deshon and Barry Duperon. First time artist to the gallery Miya Bailey of Peters Street Station and City of Ink will be creating a new body of work for our gallery. The show will also include one of the most collaborative artists in our stable, Blockhead (C. Skeene) who will be inviting a group of collaborators to bring their own styles onto the blank canvas of a carved blockhead.
To round out the exhibition, Asheville resident Kevin Palme of our Magic exhibition brings back his exquisitely refined, incredibly skilled oil paintings of ice, ice cubes in a solo show within our Grey Gallery. Palme’s cubes are frozen in a state of rest but leap out of the canvas with truly magical effects. Each piece is painted on the canvas in serene hues that dance between abstraction and photo realism.
