Time/Keep : David Malcolm Scott and Rebecca Krinke

Exhibition: April 1 – 30, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 8, 7-10pm

Rosalux Gallery is pleased to announce Time/Keep, an exhibition of new work by David Malcolm Scott and Rebecca Krinke featuring a large-scale sculptural work by Rebecca and a suite of paintings and drawings by David. The exhibition brings together the artists’ shared interest in time and memory, with a particular interest in what can be remembered or recorded and what can only be sensed or imagined.

David Malcolm Scott presents a new series of works exploring time and place – featuring a 30’ long watercolor scroll that literally starts with the formation of galaxies and moves forward through terrestrial epochs. David then uses this piece with its timeline format to add small scroll paintings above and below to reveal memories and dreams of one person’s life, in this case, the artist himself.

Time and place are highlighted in different ways in David’s two other series on view: in Weekly Commute, vivid slices of the sky are seen framed by dramatic building silhouettes, and in the stylized landscapes, the deep time of geological formations are juxtaposed with the more fleeting forms of forests, grasses, cities, and skies.

Rebecca Krinke presents a large installation, The Keep, which creates a domestic, psychological space of wonder and terror. The Keep continues her series of bed sculptures, although here a charred 4-poster bed hangs from the ceiling, upside down, bound by black-feathered walls – becoming a more abstract container/portal of space. Stacks of her dozens of black bound notebooks are visible but inaccessible on the burned wood floor below.

“Keep” as a noun originated in the Middle Ages, and was a place used as a refuge of last resort should the castle fall to an adversary. Rebecca’s installation evokes questions about what we keep, where we keep, and the costs of keeping: memories, secrets, notebooks, relationships, possessions, houses…This work and her larger practice is both highly personal and collective – in its explorations of private, public, and liminal space.

“Fruit Phonics: New works by Daniel Buettner” in January at Rosalux

ROSALUX GALLERY presents “Fruit Phonics: New works by Daniel Buettner”.

Exhibit runs: January 2 – 29, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7, 2012, 7-11 PM

Fruit Phonics: New works by Daniel Buettner

The works of Minneapolis-based artist Daniel Buettner are littered with material object imagery. From things lost under the couch you didn’t know you needed until you found them to tasty new toys advertised in magazines. His paintings speak to the innate human desire to want as much as they are a commentary on beauty in its most simple form. Buettner pairs logical form and nebulous space in a single work of art in ways that make perfect sense. Did you ever think you could love a pair of sneakers or a slice of avocado? You will.

In this exhibition, Fruit Phonics, Buettner erases the thin line in your brain that separates a painting from a collage. The objects, painted in a cripplingly realistic fashion against dark collaged backgrounds, appear as though they have been cut out and glued down on the canvas. The backgrounds provide non-specific environments for the objects and echo softly with sub-layers of photographic imagery. Whether Buettner challenges your idea of real beauty or not, his works are passively intentional and subtly powerful.
