EXHIBITION RUNS THROUGH MAY 31ST

MOMENTUM - 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 Kevin Palme. This exhibition centers around collaborative works by a diverse group of regional Southeastern-based artists who are creating work that reflects our contemporary state of creativity and shows what can happen when we work together.

Resident gallery artists Lela Brunet and Phil Harris collaborate together on three new large scale works that combines their aesthetics into layered, pop-infused, portraits of female goddesses made of sharp lines, bold colors and delicate figures. Long time artist at the gallery, Jeremy Brown collaborates with Adam Podber on a group of multimedia pieces that combine graffiti, aerosol, graphic design and resin.

Joe Camoosa returns to Kai Lin Art with Tampa-based artist Ryan McCullough collaborating on a large selection of works on paper. Mesmerizing compositions of lines, overlapping colors and interwoven geometric shapes and lines come together as Camoosa and McCullough merge their respective styles into an abstractly formal yet progressively fluid style.

Atlanta Artist Fabian Williams, know for his cosmic style and large scale murals around the city, is collaborating with artists Malika Deshon and Barry Duperon for several pieces in the exhibition. Miya Bailey of Peter Street Station and City of Ink will be showing at Kai Lin Art for the first time. Bailey has created a new body of work for our gallery featuring abstracted figures and natural palettes. MOMENTUM will also include one of the most collaborative artists at the gallery, Blockhead (C. Skeene) who invites a group of collaborators to bring their own styles onto the blank canvas of his iconic hand-carved blockhead in new inventive ways.

To round out the exhibition, Asheville resident and artist Kevin Palme returns to Kai Lin Art with his exquisitely refined and incredibly skilled oil paintings for a solo show within our Grey Gallery. Palme, previously a part of our 2018 exhibition Magic, paints still lives of melting ice cubes, frozen in a state of rest but leaping out of the canvas with truly magical effects. Each piece is painted in a serene hues that dance between abstraction and photo realism.

MOMENTUM exhibits through Friday, May 31st, 2019

APS HISTORY

The Atlanta Printmakers Studio (APS) was established to support the fine art of printmaking in metro Atlanta. Founders envisioned an organization that would provide a well-equipped printmaking studio for local artists as well as raise the awareness of printmaking as an art form. In August 2005 the incorporation papers were signed and in December 2006 APS’s 501c3 non-profit status was approved – Atlanta Printmakers Studio was founded.

Local art centers, universities, and galleries made available their facilities and galleries for workshops and exhibits as APS built membership and formed the organization. During the first year APS received many generous equipment donations. However, we needed of a permanent home. After many months of looking at potential studio space APS moved into the Metropolitan Warehouse complex. The doors opened in November 2006 near downtown Atlanta, and classes began in January 2007. Over the years APS has become a vital printmaking resource for artists, collectors, college students and children.

The Art of Todd Anderson

For the last several years I have been creatively documenting the retreating glaciers of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park in Alberta, Canada, and Montana, United States. There were over 150 glaciers in the park when it was inaugurated in 1910. Today, less than 25 glaciers remain. Owing to the effects of human-induced climate change the park’s glaciers are rapidly retreating and expected to completely cease to exist by 2020.

While the ramifications of their loss are being scientifically investigated my project seeks to document the glaciers through a purely creative lens. Artwork can transcend the realms of analytics and commercialism and generate meaningful dialogues with a broad audience. It is hoped that The Last Glacier project will serve as a historical record of this momentous time of change within the park while offering unique insights into the larger issue of climate change.The Last Glacier project has entailed traveling to the park on an annual basis for the last four years. I have logged over 500 miles on and off trail hiking to the individual glaciers to sketch, watercolor and/or photograph them. This fieldwork has then served as the basis for the creation of original fine art reductive woodblock prints. Beyond its organic language, the woodcut medium is additionally apt for my needs as the carving away and reduction of a woodblock mirrors the ongoing state of the glaciers themselves.

The Art of Valerie Zimany

Valerie Zimany examines complex relationships between the East and West, nature and technology, and intimate and public worlds through the lens of her American background and extended education in Japan. Borrowed and appropriated images from the histories of art, nature, and society transform surfaces, and suggest symbolic intersections between these different cultures. Distantly familiar archetypes from 1970’s electronics and design, traditional textile patterns, vintage enameled china, and manga or graffiti overlap to create seemingly improbable combinations. Narratives stretch over forms evocative of botanicals and the body, and are often colored with uneasy sensuality or aggressiveness, yet allure with voluptuous softness. Small vignettes hide in crevices as memories do in the corners of the mind. By clashing colors, forms, and imagery she forces relationships or questions the compatibility, and parallel a feeling of wandering out of place at just the right time.

The Art of Greg Noblin

Long time resident artist of the gallery, Greg Noblin returns with a new series of his signature panelist works. Noblin works to incorporate layers of meaning, symbolism and texture in his artworks through a multistep process of photo collage and panel printing. The final works are a combination of surrealism, photography and landscape supported by organic and inorganic structures. The whimsical and sometimes surreal images offer a glimpse of shared human experiences of struggle, joy, successes and failures. These worlds are a place where nothing is impossible, perception is everything, and reality is what you create.

CONTEMPLATIVE JANUARY 11 - MARCH 1, 2019 | KAI LIN ART is pleased to announce our first exhibition of 2019: CONTEMPLATIVE (January 11th - March 1, 2019) featuring the artwork of artists: Greg Noblin, Todd Anderson, Patrick Heagney, Valerie Zimany and Blockhead (Chris Skeene). CONTEMPLATIVE features an intriguing collection of image-based artworks and sculptures that entice viewers for quiet and peaceful moments of reflection.

Long time resident artist of the gallery, Greg Noblin returns with a new series of his signature panelist works. Noblin works to incorporate layers of meaning, symbolism and texture in his artworks through a multistep process of photo collage and panel printing. The final works are a combination of surrealism, photography and landscape supported by organic and inorganic structures. The whimsical and sometimes surreal images offer a glimpse of shared human experiences of struggle, joy, successes and failures. These worlds are a place where nothing is impossible, perception is everything, and reality is what you create.

Master printmaker Todd Anderson’s practice involves long-term, team-based projects that investigate ecological changes to wilderness areas caused by global warming. Anderson, who traditionally works in the ancient practice of woodblock printing, has developed a new experimental photogravure process for the works of CONTEMPLATIVE.  Anderson is committed to preserving the romantic beauty of the natural world and at the same time drawing attention to the dire and uncertain futures of these landscapes and ecologies. Anderson returns to the gallery with a new series of work featuring the stunning beauty of America’s trees and the devastating impact of the mountain pine beetle.

Patrick Heagney is an award winning commercial and editorial photographer who has been exhibiting his work nationally since 2001. His latest body of work combines sculpture and photography to create whimsical fairytale-like worlds out of cut paper. Each piece in this series uses the setting and characters in it to tell a parable about love and relationships.

Blockhead is a pseudonym invented by Chris Skeene in 2011 as a way to explore the thriving free art scene in Atlanta. Inspired by his collection of Pez dispensers and blind box art toys (such as figures by be@rbrick or Kidrobot), Chris uses blockheads to bring variety to the repetition of a singular form. Though much of the inspiration for his work are from machine-made items, blockheads are each hand-carved and painted, thereby highlighting the individuality and uniqueness of each piece. Chris also extends the unique nature of the figures by inviting collaborators to bring their own styles to the blank canvas of a carved blockhead.

CONTEMPLATIVE will be on exhibit through Friday, March 1st, 2019.
