The Art of Hannah Adair

My work is about the tactile, sensual body and abstract inner experience. This body of work is inspired by the mythological figure Lilith. She is the first woman, before Eve, who is exiled from the Garden of Eden for refusing to be subordinate to Adam. Using this narrative as a starting point, I am approaching the subjects of sexuality and the monstrous feminine with a sense of humor and play.

PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR ARTIST TALK
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH FROM 4:00 - 6:00 PM

THE EXHIBITION WILL RUN THOUGH NOVEMBER 15TH

PASSAGE :: photos + talk

Dear Artsy Folk,

We had a phenomenal opening for our PASSAGE exhibition featuring the Art of Steven L Anderson, Hannah Adair, Marc Boyson, and Larry Jens Anderson. We hope you’ll stop by the gallery for a visit to see the show.

Please join us Saturday, November 9th from 4 - 6PM for our Artist Talk.

Below are pictures from the exhibit opening. Enjoy!


The Art of Steven L Anderson

Steven L. Anderson’s work is about the power of Nature, and the nature of power. Alone and collaboratively, and across several media, Anderson engages in projects that look to nature as an evergreen source of metaphors for how we experience the world. Anderson’s artistic goal is “to make images, things, spaces, and situations that fuse the exhilaration of the human spirit with the ferocious beauty of Nature to make a palpable, tingling essence.”

The Tree Rings artworks are a way of growing a drawing: the artist draws circles with markers and pens that closely follow the circle before it, expanding as the rings build and bring the form into existence. Titled after the number of rings/years, these meditations on growth and the passage of time hope to provide a larger context for our lives. Where would our own activities, lifespans, and histories fit into the recordings made in tree rings? These drawings are at once a violent death, a time machine, a hypnotist’s tool, an energy vortex.

Please join us for our ARTIST TALK
Saturday, November 9th from 4:00 - 6:00 PM

The exhibition will run though November 15th

Kai Lin Art is pleased to announce our sixth exhibition of 2019 : PASSAGE exhibiting from September 27th through November 15th. PASSAGE is a four artist group exhibition that features the works of Atlanta-based artists Larry Jens Anderson, Steven L. Anderson, Hannah Adair, and Chattanooga-based artist Marc Boyson. The artworks of PASSAGE encompass a diverse range of mediums and techniques with the underlying themes of passage of life (L. Anderson), passage of nature (S. Anderson), passage of body (Adair), and passage of time (Boyson). Almost all the works in this exhibit will be on paper with some sculptural pieces that compliment their respective bodies of work.

In this latest collection from long time gallery resident Larry Jens Anderson, the concept of Passage takes on more profound meanings. Through body changes and illnesses, there is a realization that the passage of time brings us closer to death. Friends and family die and artistically, Anderson’s ability to perform and create takes on new relevance. Overlapping the contemporary attitudes to guns and being homosexual means Anderson is a part of a target group. Going to school or a concert, church, synagogue or bar used to be innocent, safe and now are tainted by the fear of dying. Using humor, art history, and religion as devices to communicate, Anderson explores gun violence and sexuality in our new complex reality of uncertainty.

Steven L. Anderson joins the gallery for his first exhibition of artwork exploring the passage of nature through intricately rendered tree rings. These works are an inquiry into the systems of our natural world from the perspective of a plant or a tree. The intention is to bring about a new vision for seeing the natural world which can open up the potential for seeing our human systems. The Tree Rings artworks are a way of growing a drawing: Anderson draws circles with markers and pens that closely follow the circle before it, expanding as the rings build and bring the form into existence. These meditations on growth and the passage of time provide context to reflect our own lifespans, activities and histories.

Printmaker Hannah Adair returns to our gallery with a body of work that explores the tactile, sensual body and abstract inner experience. Inspired by the mythological figure Lilith, the first woman before Eve who is exiled from the Garden of Eden for refusing to be subordinate to Adam, Adair delves into the subjects of sexuality and the monstrous feminine with a sense of humor and wit. Her work is one of representation and abstraction, a sense of natural and landscape, the passage of the body through chaos and control. 

Marc Boyson returns with his intuitive traces mapping moments of passage through contemporary cartography. These delicate ink line drawings on paper are an accumulation of time collected to reveal as a whole the meander of his hand. Derived from the process of remembering journeys down gridded city streets, winding country roads, and hikes throughout his life, images of these memories flow through Boyson’s mind and translate into the line wander across the paper plane. These renderings become a passage of memories into the visible, an Intuitive Derive.

EXHIBITING THROUGH FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2019
