Exhibition

Lauren Chapman "Metamorphosis" Opening at Redbud Gallery


Artist Statement

I create sculptures that ask the observer to question what they see.  I start with natural components, such as driftwood, and add character elements, like carved faces, or industrial elements to them. I disguise faces on objects and in places where they do not belong. I create scenes and objects that evoke emotions, be they joy, curiosity, or angst.  This combines my interests in nature and the human psyche into a work that draws in the observer, the natural, the human, and the industrial with one another. 

Often, a hidden element in the work causes the observer to do a double-take upon noticing the familiar in an unfamiliar context. This awareness (and initial lack thereof) informs my work: I want the observer to become more conscious of their surroundings. Any object may be hiding an interesting, unnoticed world in plain sight. My work asks the observer to notice the worlds before us that often become obscured by our supposed familiarity and to take them in with the wonder of one who sees it for the first time.

The exhibit will be on display from March 3 through March 31, 2018.

Opening Reception: Margin and Center

Exploring the edges of identities, geographies, disciplines and ideas.

Opening Reception from 5:30-8:00pm
Curator and Artists' Talks at 6:00pm
Exhibition on view: March 9 - April 29, 2018

Houston Center for Photography presents For Freedoms: Margin and Center

Margin and Center brings together several artists from around the world whose work explores the edges of identities, geographies, disciplines and ideas, and identifies—through various modes of seeing—physically, psychologically and culturally constructed separations that determine where we are supposed to go and who we are supposed to be. These divisions take the form of walls, bodies, histories, or, as when writer bell hooks—whose writing inspired the title of this exhibition—grew up in rural Kentucky, the train tracks that divided her town between black and white.

Randall Mosman "I'm Still Here" Opening at Redbud Gallery

randall mosman, redbud gallery, artist, exhibition, painting, sculpture, mixed media, opening reception, the heights, houston, gus kopriva

Redbud Gallery is proud to announce the solo exhibition and introduction of one of our most talented artists, Randall Mosman.

Born in New Orleans and educated both in Texas and internationally through extensive travels, Mosman has developed an original recognizable artistic style. You will be delighted to view impressive large mixed media, small sculpture and paintings.

His large works are somewhat dark, painted with thick layers of oil and found objects. The house like structures are reminiscent of those we see as we travel the highways and backroads of the American South. They appear surrealistic, ramshackle, as one would observe while on a very fine mind altering high. The small metallic sculptures are miniatures of the large home pieces while retaining the sense of the larger works.  Smaller paintings depict voyeur like scenes taken from a tour of our favorite lake houses or cabins nestled in the dark woods at night.

Our tunnel like eyes are directed to interesting lighted windows full of imagined potential surprises. Mosman’s figurative elements are somewhat scattered throughout his art. Observation of the human element leads the viewer to draw many different conclusions or observations of what is actually happening. Mosman’s art teases us in many ways which is his intent.

Artist Statement:
“From the desert, over the mountains, through the forest, and into the delta, across the sea, into the jungle, and back again:  The familiarity of shelter along the way is what interest me.  The space that we occupy within a place.  The cabin, the cottage, the bungalow, the shack, the house on stilts, the house on the hill.  All serve their purpose, only in a different place in a different space.”

The exhibit will be on display from February 3 through February 26, 2018.
