Pop Futurism and Abstraction

New art exhibition Pop Futurism and Abstraction opens January 21, 2017 at Artspace Warehouse. Featured artists include Jacob Burmood, Kathleen Keifer, Gail Titus, Janette Dye, and Ashleigh Sumner.

Opening Reception Saturday January 21, 5-7pm.

Through bold, abstract expression, Ashleigh Sumner attempts to incorporate the implied visual of densely populated, urban landscape with the raw, gritty texture of industrial areas.

Balance and simplicity is at the heart of Janette Dye's work. She is at her boldest when she seduces the viewer with her dynamic composition and color sensitivity to create a unique visual vocabulary.

Kathleen Keifer's paintings invite the viewer to consider the complex relationship between time and timelessness. She is fascinated with the response board games evoke in us as adults. Somehow these board games live in an unconscious dream-realm where they represent something more than the detritus of playtime. .

Gail Titus Gail Titus creates abstract artworks on canvas using acrylic paint and a variety of unconventional tools and techniques. The primary focus has been on surface development, most recently exploring textures. In a multi-step process, she methodically reworks areas in her paintings until the artworks gradually feel completed.

The forms Jacob Burmood creates are an abstraction of the fluid nature of the universe. The purpose of each work is to find an underlying order that converges elements into a unified whole that moves as one, like a school of fish or flock of birds.
