The Art of Phil Harris

Phil Harris has been hard at work developing the newest collection of art, an exciting step in a new direction. The pieces are contemporary yet familiar, with a subtle sophistication spanning a variety of techniques and themes. It’s a journey back to some of his earliest work and techniques, experimenting with different ways of using plexiglass. This collection has an emphasis on carpentry, and leaner more elegant compositions than the previous work. Thematically, it’s an unusual but pleasant marriage between mid-century modern aesthetics and cyberpunk inspired abstractions.

Currently on exhibit for EMBOLDEN :: AUGUST 2 - SEPTEMBER 20 ::
Our fifth exhibit for 2019, Embolden features the work of Atlanta artists Lela Brunet, Phillip Harris, Joe Camoosa, Lucha Rodriguez, Jeremy Brown and Stan Clark. The artworks of Embolden feature strong, saturated colors, sweeping movements of abstract forms and inventive combinations of materials and processes.

The Art of Lucha Rodriguez

Lucha Rodriguez continues to develop her collection of Knife Drawings, artworks made by watercolor and razor sharp cuts on the surface of the paper. Rodriguez’s Knife drawings challenge the viewer to take a second look at something that from a far seems simple and trivial but on a closer look, surprises them with intimate detail and complexity. These knife drawings are meant to represent the union between precision and intuition; organic and geometric; simplicity and complexity. It encourages them to know the work not by their first impressions but by taking a long hard look at what’s really beneath the surface.

The Art of Lela Brunet

Lela Brunet’s most recent works continue within her subject of goddess and the deified female form, exploring the role of power and femininity of the wider universe. Brunet is obsessed with fine details, intricate lines, unique color combinations, and geometric patterns. Her multimedia approach includes materials such as graphite, ink, coffee, acrylic, tissue bleed, and marker. Careful consideration for the posing and expressions of Brunet’s subjects have the hands gestured to depict power and purpose. The figures clothing is vibrantly earthy and sprouting from within with hair that is alive and animated.

The Art of Joe Camoosa

Joe Camoosa returns to Kai Lin Art with several large scale oil paintings that continue to explore themes of modernity, abstract formalism and the relationship between the painter and the painting. Informed by cartography, music, aerial and urban landscapes and architectural fragments, Camoosa’s work is exceptionally unique and immediately identifiable. His paintings ask the viewer to stand back and become enveloped by the work but also to examine closely and see how all of the pieces fit together.

Jeremy Brown’s most recent artworks grace the entrances of Embolden with an all out and eye catching style. Brown combines his thoughtful and impassioned approach to art making with a disciplined and practiced technique of multi-material combinations of layered resin, aerosol, brushless painting and neon lights. 

Stan Clark joins the gallery for Embolden with a series of super saturated paintings depicting the quiet moments of modern life and introspective struggles of the mind. Coming from a medical background, Clark plays with both landscapes and the human form in a style that is simultaneously precise and impressionistic.

The New South 4 :: jurors + installation

Todd Anderson, Clemson University

It was a both a pleasure and a challenge to serve as a co-juror with Lisa Hart for the New South 4 at Kai Lin Art. Regarding the later, Lisa and I were faced with the difficult task of selecting approximately 80 works from a pool of over 800. An impressively high level of quality was seen throughout the applications, as did a wide definition of what constitutes a work on paper. Paint, pencil, pen, ink, book formats, kinetics, and physically dimensional approaches to paper begin to communicate the diversity of the applications, all of which were equally considered. On this note, it was wonderful working with Lisa Hart as I learned much from her knowledge of various techniques and artistic practices. Ultimately, Lisa and I focused on curating an exhibition that we hope offers a thoughtfully divertive, celebratory and playful viewing experience for Kai Lin Art’s collectors and visitors.

Serving as a juror for an exhibition such as this one additionally affords insights into the venues themselves. Owner and Director Yu-Kai Lin and Director of Events Robie Duchateau seamlessly guided Lisa Hart and I through the jury process with professionalism and deference. I can only confirm what is common knowledge in the field: Kai Lin Art exemplifies what a top-notch metropolitan, contemporary gallery is and can be.

The artworks on display for the New South 4 are simply fantastic. Thank you Yu-Kai, Robie, Lisa, and most importantly, New South 4 artists!

Lisa Hart, Savannah College of Art & Design - Atlanta

It was my honor to be one of the Jurors, along with Todd Anderson, for the New South 4 at Kai-Lin Art Gallery. I would like to thank the talented artists for submitting their works on paper. We looked at 800 entries and it was difficult to narrow the final selection for the exhibition to only 80 pieces. The range of work was extensive from more traditional black and white figurative work to explosions of abstract color with a broad spectrum of materials used. Media ranged from photographs to prints to drawings.

I appreciate the professionalism, energy and heart that we saw in the submissions. Much of the work involved storytelling, a narrative on a page. Most artists submitted five different works which allowed us (a more in-depth view of their ideas). (to gain a deeper look into the content of what the artist was exploring). In some cases we included 2 pieces from one artist.

I am inspired by the final selection and I am excited to see the work installed in the gallery. I hope visitors to the show will enjoy the exhibition as much as I enjoyed the jurying process.
