Daniel Johnston “Drawings To Listen To And Songs To Look At” Opening at Redbud Gallery

Contact Name:

Redbud presents Daniel Johnston’s exhibit “Drawings To Listen To And Songs To Look At”.  We are always excited about presenting new never before created works of art by the world-renowned outsider poet, writer, and musician Daniel Johnston. In collaboration with his sister, artist Marjorie Johnston, they have created these works which contain lyrics of some of his over 900 songs, depicted in over 100 watercolors and collages. Each piece has the song and CD title identified on the piece.

Waller, Texas based 58-year-old Daniel Johnston has been active in the music scene since the late 70’s. He is considered a self-taught pop rocker. His art and music, many times inappropriate, is largely based on his obsession and unrelenting love with a girl named Laurie from high school.  Johnston’s songs have been cover recorded by several hundred artists, including David Bowie and Tom Waits. His life has been documented in the film “The Devil and Daniel Johnston.” Johnston’s work was shown in a recent Whitney biennial. His famous slogan of “Hi, How Are You?” first debuted in Austin. The late Kurt Cobain mused that Daniel Johnston is the best song writer in America.

Drop by the gallery for a rare treat. We hope that Daniel will be present during the opening after his recent hospital-stay. Redbud will have over 100 original signed framed works starting at $650.

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 26, 6pm-9pm
On View: January 26 – March 31, 2019

Bob Schneider “The Life We Live Here” New Work at Redbud Gallery

Gus Kopriva

Artist statement about the exhibition:

"The main theme of the work is the dichotomy between the backgrounds which are mainly Currier and Ives prints, meant to appeal to the broadest swath of the American public, and the figures in the foreground, culled from mostly very taboo 60's under the counter pornography magazines or magazines appealing to homosexuals.

What I find fascinating is the stuff that's OK to show in our society, ie. the idyllic scenes in the Currier and Ives prints, is much farther removed from the lives we live than the sex mags that we keep hidden behind the counter. Obviously, the world has changed since the 60's, but we still regard sexuality as something that you don't discuss or show in good company even though it is the driving force in the way we are wired as human beings to procreate and survive as a species.

There's a reason why I have the mulit-colored balls or confetti in the pieces as well, but I don't necessarily want to tell people what I think is going on in my work because a large part of the work is the viewers need to create a narrative involving the figures in the picture. If I tell people what my narrative is, it takes away that process which is unique to each viewer. Because it's not clear what is going on with the contrasting elements of the piece, it allows the imagination of the viewer to engage with the work in a way that wouldn't happen if it was a painting of a bowl of fruit or the original landscape that is in the background of these images. It's this unique story that the viewer creates that I find interesting, much more so than me forcing my opinion on them.

What I find energizing about the work is the idea of the appropriation of the source material. To me, it feels like theft. Granted the people who created the backgrounds are long dead and the company that created the images doesn't exist anymore, it still feels that way. I'm not asking permission to use these images and there's something about that that gives the work some energy.

The other part that I think gives the work more meaning is the idea that the models in this art originally posed for these pictures not with the intention that they would find their way into an art gallery one day, but to be in some sleazy porn mag. I love the idea that I am somehow elevating the source material, taking it out of the muck so to speak."
