“4real:  Nate Burbeck, Chloe Briggs, Brent Erickson and Jennica Kruse”

Rosalux Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of work by Nate Burbeck, Chloe Briggs, Brent Erickson, and Jennica Kruse. The exhibition showcases the work of four young artists who have recently joined Rosalux in the gallery assistant program. The opening reception of “4real” will be held on the 4th of May, 2012 from 7pm until 10pm at Rosalux Gallery 1400 Van Buren St. NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413. Further information can be acquired from Brent Erickson by email at brent.m.erickson@gmail.com.

Each artist brings a unique approach in art-making to the gallery, but the four share a youthful, active, and optimistic approach to the Minneapolis arts community. Nate Burbeck’s paintings combine various landscapes, metaphors, and figures to construct a visual narrative, which alludes to the surreal or supernatural in the context of contemporary sensibility.  These works aim to project a sense of wonder and illusion, drawing on concepts of the sublime, paranormal, spiritual revelation, contemplation and cinematic grandeur. Chloe Briggs is an oil painter, focusing primarily on portraiture.  Her work is based on ideas of perception and reflection revolving around the feminine figure and the conceptualization of self-identity. Brent Erickson’s work explores process and effect of lithography through drawings and printmaking. Drawing surrogate images for people in conversation, these works explore how conversation and the transmission of ideas are reflected from one person to another. Jennica Kruse layers images, materials, and techniques while exploring themes of history and architecture. All of her work is based on photos of times and places from her own personal history.

The work by these four artists will be on display at Rosalux Gallery from May 4th to May 15th. The opening reception will be held on the 4th of May at Rosalux Gallery from 7pm until 10pm and is free to the public.
