Posted by Redline Denver on Fri 17 Apr 2015 | 0 Comments

One of the most gratifying things about being part of EPIC Arts is getting to work with young student artists who are developing their craft. Hannah Mae Page is one such artist; a 11th grader at Thornton High School, she has been taking photography and finessing her style and technique. Hannah came to RedLine for her class’s field trip and in a happy accident, they just barely missed the bus on the way back to Thornton. Like many photographers, she used that time as an opportunity to make work, snapping a picture of a friend. She describes the circumstances behind her image:.

Last week at RedLine, we put on the second session of our new program Ménage à trois. This is a dynamic program in three parts that explore's RedLine's exhibitions through unconventional methods. Kind of wacky, kind of amusing, kind of intellectual- the program presents three takes on the current exhibition and may include dialogue, fireside chats, performances, interactive art experiences, debates by artists, and hat tricks. Explorations at the intersections of play and art. Playing on the theme of Beauty and Role Play, guests were invited to try on costumes based on theme/role chosen at random..

Daisy Patton: Artistic Moods

Posted by Redline Denver on Tue 7 Oct 2014 | 0 Comments

Daisy Patton by SANDRA These mysterious & playful portraits are the work of Daisy Patton. Currently living in Denver, Colorado, Daisy is an artist who is fascinated by family, memory and the temporal value of the photograph. The works below are from a series called Forgetting is So Long and the people in the collected photographs are unknown strangers from the past. As Daisy herself explains: “They say we die two deaths: the first is our actual passing; the second is when the last person who carries a memory of us takes their final breath. Family photographs, vessels of memory, are therefore integral to extending this quasi-life. They show a mother, a child, a past self, full of in-jokes and minutia meaningful only to a select few. But divorced from their origins and subjects, these emotion-ridden images become empty and unknowable, for they are intrinsically entwined with the intimate memories of someone.” Daisy Patton earned her MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Tufts University. If you happen to live near Denver, you will have an opportunity to see her work in real life at the Michael Warren Contemporary Gallery from december 2014 to january 2015. If not, you can visit her site for many more beautiful works: www.daisypatton.com.
