Opening: Saturday, May 2, 2015 from 7pm-10pm
Ride-On is a fusion of disciplines, featuring the works of Amber Eagle, Dion Laurent and Jonathan Rosenstein.
Amber Eagle’s exhibition, Ride, curated by Ann Harithas in 2014 at the Nave Museum in Victoria, Texas, will feature her most recent art car, Rosebud, and a series of artwork created in relation to that project.
Eagle is inspired by ancient alien astronauts and outer space, as well as the richness of the Mexican culture. Using ancient aliens as a metaphor, she refers to “the stranger in us all” in addition to “illegal aliens”, to guide the viewer to look inward to our own enigmatic inner space. Eagle has collaborated with Mexican craftspeople, her husband Guillermo Rosas, carpenters, electricians, mechanics and seamstresses to produce this body of work.
Dion Laurent’s travels are reflected in his multimedia transdisciplinary artworks with an immediacy and provocative attitude, invoking a social and environmental discourse. In Earth Man and AirPlane1, he references and appropriates techniques from both art and science, Laurent believes we should “wake up and act globally” through the emulation of the conditions of living in outer space here within the extremes of Planet Earth.
Jonathan Rosensteins’ assemblages are comprised of found objects carefully selected from store bought items. He chooses objects that are a reflection of current consumer culture in The United States of America. His use of colors and shapes are in the tradition of abstraction.
This exhibit will be opening on the evening of Saturday, May 2nd from 7-10pm. Ride-On will continue through the summer.
