RAYCHAEL STINE
Chuparrosa

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb 20th, 2015, 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through March 27th, 2015.

 

In Raychael Stine’s newest body of work, Chuparrosa, paintings on canvas and paper confidently propose that no event is truly unique. By layering abstract painterly gesture and deft representation, Stine creates scenarios where perception and perspective get confused. The work in Chuparrosa articulates the transitive relationship between form and material with an aim to create more space, and more looking. Stine defends the value of feeling in the context of contemporary art, as well as the importance of tenderness in everyday life.
Raychael Stine lives in Albuquerque and works as an Assistant Professor of Painting at the University of New Mexico. Her most recent solo exhibitions include galleries Inpost Artspace (Albuquerque, NM;) Jekyll & Hyde (Chicago, IL;) Eugene Binder (Marfa, TX;) and Marty Walker Gallery (Dallas, TX). Raychael holds a BFA from University of Texas at Dallas and an MFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago.

 

SUSAN WHYNE
Entrances
1969-1977

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb 20th, 2015, 6-8pm

Exhibition runs through March 27th, 2015.

 

Entrances by Susan Whyne is a selection of work made when she was living in the San Francisco Bay area between 1969-1977. A transplant from New York at the time, Whyne was stirred by the new experience of blocks of endless front yards with unexpected arrangements of forms, patterns, and color. The small-scale works on paper combine landscape and architecture to the effect of mysterious sculptural associations.

Susan Whyne lives in Austin, TX and recently retired from her position as associate professor of painting at the University of Texas at Austin. She is currently presenting a solo exhibition at FRONT Gallery (Houston, TX,) and has previously exhibited at Texas Gallery, (Houston, TX;) the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; and the New Museum (New York City.) Whyne holds a BFA from Cooper Union and an MFA from San Francisco State University.
