Chambers opening night

I relly enjoyed the opening night of the new gallery at Chambers last Thursday. The entire area seemed to be a mix of different worlds. There were so many people that made me think it was a formal event while there were others in casual wear...like me. It really made me think it was a party as well as a gallery. My favorite pieces in the gallery were the charcoal image called "Battlefield" with a little child standing off to the left and another work by a man named Cory Prahl. This work was three pictures of a general neighborhood but without the houses. The picture would just show a fence, road, driveway, and mailboxes. This work really made me think. We think of neighborhoods as being crowded places and a small amount of trees and bushes make the entire place seem natural and full. When you take away the actual buildings and leave everything else behind, I realized how empty our worlds have become. The grass is dying, there are no more trees, the entire land has become a barren land. I think the actual work is a simple idea but the thoughts it invokes means a lot.

Robert Silver's "American Flag" was a work that was a part of the hotel found really interesting. It was a work that takes many other images, decrease their size and then put them together to form another picture all in one. This is a style I have seen before, but it never ceases to amaze me how one can find the right images to use. I saw in the 'flag' many well known sites from all around the country. I tried looking for certain similarities with the colors or even the columns. I noticed that pictures associated with the sky or water gave were in the blue area of the flag. Desserts were red, ice was what formed the stars and white stripes while city lights formed darker red stripes. I really like how the artist was able to form the larger image to appear as a flag waving in the wind. This piece was fascinating and I could have spent hours just looking over each and every picture trying to guess where it was taken.

Ink jet prints (grid) by Catrin Magnusson
On the one hand, this series of canvases was calming to look at. The softness of the color of white and the light gray of the airplanes felt sweet and dream-like, the tone of a picture you’d put in a child’s bedroom, however the thoughts provoked in my head were not so banal. I immediately thought of plane crashes, and it made me wonder if ever more I can see artwork depicting a plane without thinking about September 11th. I know from being in a plane flying just above the clouds that that experience can feel dream-like, but flying through clouds can feel scary, too.

Utopia 2 by Paul Winstanley
Reading the description of the painting written by Paul Winstanley himself reminded me of the parallel function of the space of a theater. He described the space he had painted as “open to the potential for human drama.? The theater is likewise a big and open space that serves as a place where human interaction (in the form of a play) can take place. Often times, theater artists say that production values (sets, lighting and costumes) aren’t necessary like the character work of the actors is. It is the drama, the interaction between people that is most interesting on stage, not the quality of the lighting. But, theater audiences rarely see a stage bare of set and actors, yet the stage is vitally important to the production of theater. What if an empty stage were the play? What if it was the art that people came to see—the place where potential exists. This painting gives such a look at a space of potential, a place where the drama of life takes place, void of everything but itself. It feels slightly eerie, because it feels unnatural, especially because the time of day is during light hours, not during the night when it would be appropriate for people to be elsewhere, at home, asleep, most likely. Because of this, I feel a palpable energy within the painted space—something should be happening or something could happen any minute.
