LAURA STACK / MELISSA LOOP OPENING 9/10 AT ROSALUX GALLERY

Two solo Painting shows at ROSALUX GALLERY

LAURA STACK: FLUERE  
MELISSA LOOP: FABRICATED REAL

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 10, 7-10pm
Exhibition Dates: September 3 – 25, 2016
Gallery Hours: Saturdays & Sundays, 12 – 4pm or by appt.
rosaluxgallery.com

Rosalux Gallery is pleased to present two solo shows by Minneapolis artists Laura Stack and Melissa Loop. In Fluere, Stack’s abstract ink paintings suggest an amalgam of the natural and the synthetic where shapes morph into odd, though vaguely familiar forms and ink patterns bloom, dissolve, and disperse. In Fabricated Real, Loop’s landscape paintings use her travels to Mayan ruins in Central America as a subject to explore notions of how we form assumptions about authenticity, place, and spirituality through our explorations and ill-informed ideas of other cultures.

Laura Stack’s hyper-color ink paintings allude to a bodily, cellular or chemical world with its own rules and physics. Her work suggests paradoxes and simultaneities; the paradox that living things can now embody synthetic elements, the simultaneity of flatness and depth, and the illusion of movement that can be suggested within still images. Stack’s art practice is motivated by her curiosity in nature and science. Her paintings are an imagined mirroring of artificial biological or what we might call the “new natural”.

About these paintings, Melissa Loop says: “I was in Tikal sitting on top of the highest temple after sunset with about a dozen other tourists. We were listening to our Mayan guide tell us a story about him and his twin brother born in the rainforest. The Mayans believe that twins are of the gods. A sign of good luck. In the distance, the tops of the other temples peaked above the rainforest and we watched a lightning storm dance in the sky. Part of the scene was a setup created for us tourists. However, part of it was a rare moment in time that contained all of the mystic and spiritual clarity that we search for when traveling to faraway places. The setup cliche became an actual moment of transendence. By making these half fantasy paintings, I participate in the cliche. However, I can’t help but search for those rare moments where everything transcends and becomes magical again.”

Ink drawing by Valerie Jenkins. Hyper-color gouache painting by Laura Stack.

LAURA STACK and VALERIE JENKINS debut new DRAWINGS and PAINTINGS in their third exhibition together at Rosalux Gallery. Both artists delve into abstraction as a means of understanding the mysteries of life and the dynamics of culture.

LAURA STACK’S HYPER-COLOR PAINTINGS allude to a fluid, cellular, bodily or chemical world with its own rules and physics. Her work suggests paradoxes, simultaneities and illusions: the paradox that living things can now embody synthetic elements, the simultaneity of flatness and depth, and the illusion of movement that can be suggested within still images. The paintings are an imagined mirroring of the mysterious questions that define our relationship with the physical world. Art website Laurastackart.com
VALERIE JENKINS EXPLORES HOW PERCEPTION is shaped by cultural experience, how interpretation is conditioned by perception, and the way meaning filters through the significance of being and the banality of everyday life. In her new series titled ‘Figure/Ground” drawings and objects interrelate through an economy of means. Form results through a distillation of events, people and places. When viewed together, Valerie’s work functions as a lexicon of experience that is particular to the urban environment and cultural moment.

March Rosalux Exhibit, Laura Stack and Valerie Jenkins “Sticky Ridges”

Stack-Jenkins-Mailchimp-invite-image-2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7th, 7-10pm

Exhibit Dates: March 7- 29, 2015
Rosalux Gallery Hours: Sat & Sun 12-4

“Sticky Ridges and other perils of silent senses” features the paintings of Laura Stack and paintings/drawings of Val Jenkins in a two-person exhibition at Rosalux Gallery. Both artists share an interest in exploring spatial perception through the simultaneity of flatness and depth, and the illusion of movement that can be suggested within still images. Laura Stack creates a fluid spatial world into which the viewer projects themselves into another world, a bodily or cellular world – a world with its own rules and physics. Val Jenkins’ makes work that she describes as projecting into the space of the viewer, so there is a moment of recognition between materiality and illusion.

Laura Stack’s detailed ink paintings are an amalgam of the natural and the synthetic. Borrowing from both natural and man-made structures, her painted and poured ink images morph into odd, though vaguely familiar forms that bloom, dissolve, and then disperse. Dried pools of ink suggest the flux and flow of indeterminate forms. http://rosaluxgallery.com/my_portfolio/laura-stack/#.VPd2pXzF8-o  and http://laurastackart.com/

Valerie Jenkins’ oil paintings and graphite drawings are both pictures of space and they inhabit space as objects. Phenomena gleaned from the material and virtual world create an internal structure that is both subterranean and architectural. Viewed all together, the work functions as a trace of everyday experience; where such concerns as distance and proximity, ambiguity and contradiction, matter and its negation, invite speculation about illusion and reality. http://www.valeriejenkinsart.com/
