Widely recognized in the local street art scene for his image of a queen wearing a gas mask, Eatherly is expanding his work to the fine art world.
Eatherly is heavily influenced by urban decay, abandoned structures, and weathered environments where nature is reasserting its dominance. This solo exhibition will feature never-before-seen paintings, sculptures, and art installations in which found objects from these lost spaces are allowed to infringe upon and disrupt the gallery space. By transforming salvaged materials and elevating them into works of art, the viewer is challenged to see past surface erosion to the beauty underneath.
ART on 5th’s youngest artist is returning to Austin this summer with a new body of work. Reflecting on what it means to be a photographer in the age of smartphones and selfies, Brandon Snow works with an arsenal of film cameras dating from the 1930’s to record the objects and events around him. He then translates these images from film to canvas or linen through a large-format silk-screening process developed by the artist himself. Snow says he didn’t set out to be a silkscreen printer; “it’s that I wanted to print my own photographs with my own two hands. No computers.”
This exhibition will continue through Sunday, July 8th
Los Angeles based artist Cynda Valle creates luminous portraits using an antiquated technique of oil glazing and tempra paints, previously used by old Renaissance masters such as Rubens and Vermeer. This process requires her to tediously build up the surface of the canvas with over 30 layers of translucent paints. Her bright colors and eerie scenes are like something out of a strange dream. These contemporary paintings are witty as well as beautiful, often referencing famous works from art history, but with a surrealist twist.
