What a Bloody Mess

Fear is a common theme with this exhibition; each artist is fretting over the future. The list of concerns is growing daily: environmental hazards, natural and man-made disasters, military conflicts, political and social strife. Influenced by media and the collective consciousness, the work reflects and calls into question the zeitgeist of our time. While each artist has an individual approach to expressing their concerns and fears about the current environmental, socio-political situation, all of the pieces reflect on and interrogate the world in which we live.

Doxology

Link & Pin presents Doxology, a series of large-scale conscious reflex drawings by British artist Rob Pepper. Each piece in this series is a redrawing of cathedral windows Pepper found in his native England. The windows’ depiction of the Christ narrative is reimagined through the technique of conscious reflex drawing, in which the artist makes no eye contact with the paper as he draws. Pepper then used gold leaf to emphasize details of significance or reference to traditional icons.

Winston Lee Mascarenhas: my Music, my Heartbeat, my Mark

Winston Lee Mascarenhas transforms the sounds and rhythms of music and dance into layered paintings with a balanced palette that is both bold and soft.  Known for his masterfully composed encaustic bas-relief artworks, Winston’s new painting ventures continue his use of emotive mark making.  A restless innovator and explorer of texture, color, and space; Winston’s ongoing experimentation continues to generate eloquently refined visual artworks.  CAMIBAart is proud to be the first stateside exhibit of artworks from Winston Lee Mascarenhas’s thesis exhibit at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland.

Women & Their Work

GREENER PASTURES

Women & Their Work is pleased to present GREENER PASTURES, the first solo exhibition of Texas based artist, Liss LaFleur. This exhibition includes five new performances documented in photographs, video, text-based prints, neon, 3D glass and leather installations.

For GREENER PASTURES, LaFleur mines sources specifically related to the fabricated image of the cowgirl in American culture, reclaiming this narrative as a cowgrrrl, to construct a new, cohesive conceptual vocabulary around queer identity, the South, and radical feminism. Opening a space for viewers to address social conditioning, GREENER PASTURES questions the constructs of masculinity, animal empathy, futurity, fetishization, and the role of the personal archive.
