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.

NUTS & BITS: Shawn McNulty and Daniel Buettner in November

Nuts and Bits

ROSALUX GALLERY presents “NUTS & BITS”:
New paintings by Shawn McNulty and Daniel Buettner

Exhibit runs: November 7th–29th, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 7th, 7:00-10:00 PM
https://www.facebook.com/events/412030608992492/

Painters Shawn McNulty and Daniel Buettner build up their work with many parts and layers similar to how a machine or engine is put together with various nuts and bolts, or in this case, nuts and bits. McNulty applies thick acrylic and texture mediums with unconventional tools and motions, which results in engaging compositions with unique forms that beg to be deciphered as an abstract painting. Buettner presents random traditional imagery in an abstract environment, which engages the viewer to interpret the scenario. Both artists are longtime Rosalux members and incorporate a vibrant color palette.

Shawn McNulty, a founding member of Rosalux Gallery since 2002, works his square canvas on the floor using acrylic and pumice with large industrial palette knives.  He also uses his feet with a “shoe palette knife” in an attempt to discover new forms by modifying his control. His work explores the idea of recognizable shapes and structures living within irrational thoughts and emotions.  The process starts out very spontaneously and becomes more detailed as the composition starts to show itself.  The color fields interchange with each other, attempting to find common ground resulting in multifaceted and interesting edges. The process continues until a solution is found, always applying and mixing paint directly on the canvas, scraping away layers to reveal the ghostly characters of the previous. http://shawnmcnulty.com

Artist Daniel Buettner’s paintings show objects placed in contexts different from which they were originally intended to be in. The objects, often simple and otherwise not worthy of much thought, are painted in the finest of detail against photos of unlikely environments collaged into the backgrounds. The “new” setting invites the viewer to construct meaning the same way a child might when presented with a situation that, from the adult perspective is either obvious, or rhetorical, or both. http://www.danielbuettnerart.com/

Shana Kaplow in the Waiting Room’s group exhibition NO VACANCY

No Vacancy
October 16 – December 13, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, October 16, from 7–10 pm

Featuring Melissa Cooke, Shana Kaplow, Cherith Lundin, Laura Migliorino, Joe Smith, Sara Suppan, and Carrie Thompson.
A glowing red neon hotel sign signifies that all empty rooms are full. 

No Vacancy, on view at Waiting Room October 16 through December 13th, replies to this presupposition with the work of seven artists, who, in their discrete practices, model emotional airlocks for working through contemplation of self and surroundings. 

The exhibition fixates on the residual perceptual affect and psychological tensions that linger in domestic, liminal, and transient places, spaces, and non-spaces. The artists featured in this exhibition point to architecture, furnishings, and self-imagery as a means of representing and simulating the vestiges of internal sensibilities, memory, and feeling.

Many artists here take empty and temporary spaces as their subjects: pregnant thresholds momentarily cool with the sense of delay or a pause in activity. A sense of discomfort, maybe even transformation, settles in these interstitial chambers. Other artists point to objects as vehicles for self or avail their own image as a metric for tenor. In such containers, the lone self is fully on view: inadequate, restless, waiting.No Vacancy brings together artists from various career stages and mediums around the notion of letting in, or out, the metaphorical white noise from that shared sense of solitude.

Curated by Jehra Patrick, the exhibition marks the one-year anniversary of Waiting Room’s exhibition program. In the past 12 months, Waiting Room has hosted five exhibitions, multiple public programs, and shown work from 24 local and national artists. Following this exhibition, Waiting Room will welcome a 2016 exhibition program curated by invitation.

Rebecca Krinke will show her sculptural installations at the upcoming Northern Spark Festival.

Rebecca Krinke will show her sculptural installation DREAM WINDOW at the upcoming Northern Spark Festival.

Dream Window is a 4-poster bed sculpture installed among the girders of the Mill City Museum ruins. Suspended high above the courtyard, like some surreal animation from a dreamscape, it is a sight for wonder and a site of remembering in the middle of your all-night, Northern Spark reverie.

The bed is semi-transparent, illuminated from within, and composed of odd bedding materials such as black feathers and transparent fabrics. Check it out from below. Look at it from above. Gaze past it across the Mississippi River, the Stone Arch Bridge and St. Anthony Falls. What is your vision?

Throughout the night the artist and her team will create pages of their dream memories—and yours—and sew them together into a single, community dream book.

Rebecca Krinke is a multidisciplinary artist working across sculpture, installation, public art, and social practice. Her work asks questions about place and emotion – and ideas of private and public.
