Sentient: A Solo Exhibition by Ashley Eliza Williams

Sentient, a solo exhibition by artist Ashley Eliza Williams, considers the inner lives of earth's most primordial inhabitants. With delicately rendered oil paintings, video works, and collaborative sculptures, Williams approaches geological forms with the sensitivity and reverence afforded the most venerable subjects of historical portraiture. Continuing the artist’s interest in animating the natural world, this subtle and powerful series features inorganic forms that have witnessed and weathered the traumas of history. The exhibition asks viewers to consider that geological artifacts are more than inert objects – they are also vulnerable sentinels of time.

Month of Photography

MOP - Month of Photography Denver is a celebration of fine art photography through over 80 collaborative public events throughout Denver and the region for the month of March 2011.

Exiting RedLine

This exhibition celebrates three wonderful years that RedLine has hosted Resident Resource Artists Tom Guiton, Margaret Neumann, Bruce Price and Clark Richert as part of the RedLine artist studio community. In addition to their contributions in painting to the local, regional, national, and international contemporary arts stage, these four master artists not only served as members to the RedLine arts community but also as mentors to that community. This exhibition captures the aesthetic trajectory between their entry into and exit from RedLine.

 

Joel Swanson: formalisms

Formalisms is an exhibition that explores the relationship between language, form and technology.

Hybrid

Initiated by Rian Kerrane, a native of Ireland, Hybrid asks fourteen artists to “cross over”. The artists’ work examines the experience of crossing the Atlantic in the current political climate while acknowledging historic influences from each artist’s perspective; identifying experiences of (dis)placement and immersion in cultural and social surroundings from either side of the Atlantic. RedLine provides the first venue for a pair of exhibitions, the second of which will take place in Ireland, allowing each artist to engage both with “local” proximity and “foreign” distance in turn.

Reoccurring Tendencies

"I recently became interested in the organic contours and fleshy surfaces of the skins created by spilled paint. As my consideration of these evolved, figures or characteristics of figures came to inhabit them. I consider these to be embodiments of the existential and archetypal concerns that have always driven my work." Read More.

 

The Ironic Object

Works for this exhibition were chosen against a backdrop of changes in contemporary art. If, well over a century ago, the accessibility of the photograph freed artists from representation, the digital era has opened up even more possibilities of expression. Yet, alongside all these changes, the object persists and carries weight. We ‘read’ its materials, its cultural associations and the unspoken processes by which it was made, as rapidly or more rapidly than words. Read More.

 

An Invisible Boundary

How do we consider the stakes of invisibility within the artist's individual practice and field at large? RedLine residents will take a broad-reaching approach to this idea in An Invisible Boundary, exploring such strategies as distorting conventional perception, privileging the non-visual senses (or otherwise pointing to the limitations of sight), and dealing with “veiled” or covert subject matter. Curated by Carmen Winant. Read More.
