BRADLEY KERL

Opening Reception: Friday, January 9th, 2015, 6-8pm

Exhibition runs through February 14th, 2015.

 
The paintings and collages in Blind Arcade occupy the psychological space between sincere and impossible. Bradley Kerl’s newest body of work subverts traditional landscapes and still-lifes with the frame of an archway, challenging the veracity of otherwise candid pictures. Through this device, Kerl transforms the viewing process into a precarious exercise, creating scenes just friendly enough to enter.
On days when Bradley isn’t working from his studio/living space north of downtown, he teaches painting at area community colleges and works as a studio assistant. He recently earned his MFA from the University of Houston and has since been significantly involved in the unique culture of emerging contemporary art in Houston.

ANGEL OLOSHOVE
FLOATING WORLDS

Opening Reception: Friday, January 9th, 2015, 6-8pm

Exhibition runs through February 14th, 2015.

 
Angel Oloshove’s ceramic sculptures cue humor and buoyancy. As vessels, what kind of transcendent energy they could possibly contain is implored by their ombré surfaces. With one degree of separation from any overt references but full of innuendo, the work in Floating Worlds gently suggests that one follow the slope, absorb the color, and feel the pleasure.
Angel studied painting and drawing at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. She has exhibited at Gallery Hanahou (New York), Front St. Gallery (Oakland, CA), and several arts institutions across Japan, as well as numerous local venues. Angel currently lives and works in Houston, Tx.
