James Roche "Some Americans Feel Like This" Opening at Redbud Gallery


Redbud Gallery is pleased and humored to present the latest “Spoken Word” works by the iconic American multimedia artist, Jim Roche, in a rare public appearance. The artist will be present. The viewer should be aware that some of the material will be adult and somewhat irreverent in nature.  The exhibit will be on view from November 3 through November 27, 2018.

Roche was born near Malone, Florida in 1943, received a BA from Florida State University in 1966, and spent seven years in Texas before returning to teach at FSU for many years. Since displaying a painted ceramic sculpture in the 1970 Whitney Annual, he has never stopped working.

Along with sculpture and drawing, he started doing audio performance tapes in 1971 and would later play them in NYC at the Paula Cooper Gallery in 1974.  Very underground and unpolitically correct, these raw tapes caught on and were pirated by several sources in Germany and Nashville.  Some of the work was published in written form.  Invisible City, Red Hill Press, Fairfax, California 1980. Boxcar Magazine, Los Angeles, 1983.  Avalanche Magazine, NYC, 1976.  High Performance Magazine, Spring 1984.  The work has been published in audio form as well, starting in 1972, these audio works have been played many times in museums and gallery shows around the country and were featured on Pacifica Radio in LA during the late 80's.

Roche has been working on visual art efforts for 50 years since 1968, including a solo at the Whitney Museum in 1974, inclusion in the 37th Venice Biennial in 1976, and the 10th Biennale De Paris in 1977.   He has shown mostly in public museums over the decades.  He started doing video performance in 1985 and stopped doing sound-only pieces for a while, only recently picking it back up with a 2013 double CD "Some Americans Feel Like This."   Along the way, Roche did cameo parts in movies including, “Something Wild” in 1986, “Silence of the Lambs” in 1990, “Philadelphia” in 1993, “Beloved” in 1998, and “The Manchurian Candidate” in 2003. His audio performance of “Fight It Out” was used as a guide line to copy in a long scene from the movie “Slacker”.  "The Best of Jim Roche:  Multiple Voices 1986 to 1993," is a DVD of thirty video performance characters that was published in October 2006.

Jim Roche has continued drawing and showing spoken word.  With this new body of "word only" drawings, Roche feels like his interest in our culture and where it goes continues and he thanks all of the people who have helped this happen. Enjoy this rare appearance of an American Southern Master.

Natural Elements


We are so excited to host "Natural Elements", Mark Roden's solo show exhibit with some exquisite recent work by the artist! 

The elements of nature conspire together to form the world that we live in.
Shaping the environment over millenia, the fire, water, wind and earth give us an abundance of life and a platform on which to exist. 

In "Natural Elements," Roden captures abstractly the essence of each element in ways harmonious with "Mother Nature", with respect to the human condition, and in concert with the artist's own ideas and practices.

When:
Oct 26, 2018
JoMar Visions Studios: 5249 Langfield Rd., Houston TX, 77040  - Exquisite fine art by Mark Roden.- Free & Open to the public- Plenty of on site Parking- Complimentary Hors d'Oeuvres - Drinks served by  AR Bartending Service.

Alexa Kleinbard “Songbirds Nesting At Twilight” Opening at Clarke & Associates


ArtistStatement: 
 
“The catalyst for this new body of drawings has been a lifelong interest in birds, their migrations, songs, and nesting sites.  Twelve years ago, we bought as mall treehouse-like cabin nestled in the North Georgia forested mountains where we listen to the wonderful songs of the birds arriving to build their nests in the spring.  The chorus is spectacular and as time envelopes everything, I have begun to notice the chorus has been depleted, every year a little shorter and quieter.
 
I have been researching this issue and have found over 40% fewer songbirds are able to survive.  Pesticides, climate change, and habitat loss have played havoc on birds’ ability to find clean water and food, plus the habitats they have relied on to nest and live in are disappearing fast. In addition, the overabundance of algae growth killing millions of fish and other aquatic life in our lakes, rivers, and oceans, is beginning to be very toxic to all life.  Recently, a friend who swam in the ocean that had some of these algae died from an infection. As the planet warms, scientists are predicting more of the toxic algae will flourish, encroaching on more of our fragile sanctuaries and causing harm to all life.
 
In my drawings, I use the green swirling wind to symbolize the poisonous danger we will be encountering in the future as deforestation, mountain removal, more coal and oil, too much plastic and pesticides, threaten to destroy our planet as we know it, thus making it a wasteland for all life.
 
The small shaped painted wood panels called Pristine Florida are reflections on our extremely fragile and amazingly rich Northern Florida homeland where over-development is creeping into our precious environment.
 
The dark blue-black drawings are reflections on our twilight in the mountains, its magic wonderment as some animals go to sleep and some wake up.
 
Seawater rise is another issue I have begun to draw.  Specifically, the two drawings of the Roseatte Spoonbills are showing their nesting estuaries that are being flooded killing their chicks.

I have traveled, camping extensively all over the USA, seeing extraordinary beauty in natural landscapes and a spectacular diversity of flora and fauna.  In the last ten years, I am deeply saddened to witness a severe decline in wild habitats…once filled with native plants and animals.  Human manipulation of every natural area is apparent.  These issues continue to impel me to make work about nature’s beauty and magical spirit, what must be protected in the garden of life, and how our very complicated interaction with her is changing the planet greatly.”

The exhibit will be on display from November 3 through November 27, 2018.
