The Company of Others

OHNO!DOOM GALLERY PRESENTS ‘THE COMPANY OF OTHERS’ COLLABORATIVE SHOW JUNE 9, 2012

OhNo!Doom Gallery gathers five local and visiting artists for The Company Of Others, a collaborative show featuring exciting interpretations of the figure study. Styles range from abstract to what could be described as psychedelic pop, but as OhNo!Doom Gallery co-owner Joey Potts says, “No matter how differently they work, they each give a nod to classical visions of art while still being very contemporary.”

The Company of Others, “revolves around artists whose primary focus in their work is the figure” Potts says, who feels this body of work can tell you a great deal about the creators—or add a bit of mystery, challenging preconceived notions.

“The way two different artists approach a figure tells a lot about the artist him/herself as a person.” Potts adds, “It’s like being in the city and world in which we live, you never exactly know who or what lies behind closed doors…you walk by them every day never getting to see inside, wondering what’s in there. Then one day, you catch a glimpse through an open curtain or door.”

What will you find though those open doorways? Potts says a lot depends on what happens when the imagination of the artist and that of the viewer collide head-on in the gallery.

The Company Of Others features artwork in bold colors and aggressive styles, but also offers pieces in muted colors and soft pastels—it’s a diverse collection which demands attention. 

The Company Of Others opens at OhNo!Doom Gallery Saturday, June 9th at 6PM. The show runs until Thursday, July 5th. For more information or to schedule press, contact show organizer and gallery co-owner Joey Potts at 773.698.8348. By email: info@ohnodoom.com

Chris Drew taught me how to screen print and was the most active person I have ever met. He taught free classes every Sunday at the American Indian Center on Wilson. His method was super DIY, only using simple materials that could easily be built and portable. This would allow artists to take their trade anywhere to generate their art and spread their message. And spreading the message was Chris’ passion, fighting the anti-peddling law (for the rights for artists to sell work on the streets.) He was relentless and used every avenue, most often in person downtown. I’ll miss his optimism and super rad laugh.http://www.art-teez.org/

faces - I did a series of painting for this installation. Faces with expressions suggested for the leaning figure. Although, I was pretty unsatisfied with most of them, feeling i had rushed and overkilled them. This was my most successful of the pieces.
