Travis Bruce Black “New KungFu”
Bright Rain Gallery
opening reception May 4 2012 5:30-8:30pm
show hangs until April 30
Travis Bruce Black will show recent paintings at his Bright Rain Gallery exhibition New Kungfu May 4, 2012. The opening reception with the Artist will be from 5:30-830.
New Kungfu will include Black’s newest figurative and nature musings. The new figurative works are tightly composed and watery with the color saturation turned way up. These figures play on spacial relationships and forced geometry more like the chirp series than his previous figures. The environment of these pieces are clouds of color with a hard edge architectural structure.
The Chirp series- Black’s intricate Bird compositions with occasional prop of nests, plants, and a multitude of references to virtual and dream worlds- will continue with Travis’ new show. In Particular chirp 200, his milestone piece and largest watercolor to date at 37×51 inches will be showing it’s domestic scene of two 100x magnified birds perching on an over sized geranium branch.
