LAURA STACK and MELISSA LOOP at ROSALUX GALLERY SEPT. 2016

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.

Stack-Loop show

Rosalux Gallery is pleased to present two solo shows by Minneapolis artists Laura Stack and Melissa Loop. 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. 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.
Contact at artist’s website: Laurastackart.com and Melissaloop.com

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.

Ute Bertog in Group Exhibit at the Waiting Room Gallery

Rosalux artist, Ute Bertog is showing paintings as part of the Waiting Room’s  summer group exhibition entitled Chaos Management.
Ute Bertog’s art website – http://utebertog.com/home.html

Exhibit runs August 7 – September 26, 2015

Curated by Jehra Patrick, the exhibition centralizes on the notion that art – and artistic pursuits – are born out of inherent risk: objects, proposals, performances, and ideas out into the word without guarantee of reception. Success is unpredictable. Outcomes are hard to calculate.

Participating artists:  Kieran Riley Abbott, Kimberly Benson, Ute Bertog, Emma C. Cook, Tucker Hollingsworth, Michael Johnson, Andrea Joki (OH), Todd Kelly (NY), Kelsey Olson, Jeremy Szopinski.
More info on the exhibit at http://www.waitingroomart.org/Chaos-Management

Gallery Hours: Thurs. 4–8pm and Fri., Sat., and Sun. from 12–4 pm and by appointment.

Waiting Room is located in the historic Loring Corners building near Loring Park in Minneapolis.
1629 Hennepin Avenue
Suite 300F
Minneapolis, MN 55403
