Bobby Coleman, Detail from painting "Clean up in aisle 5"

Bobby Coleman paints to make something that he wants to see in the world. Coleman deconstructs objects, symbols, and colors found within the urban landscape into a deeply layered composition that echoes the chaos and visual noise he encounters in daily life. Each element is a recalled visual memory, simplified into line, color, or form. These elements are then expanded and built upon acting as recalled memory often does, clouded and re-contextualized over time.

D.B. Stovall: Photographs of the American Vernacular

D.B. Stovall, "West Bodin, Indiana", 2013

Two person exhibition featuring the photography of Kim Llerena and D.B. Stovall. The two artists examine the American landscape and built environment from distinct conceptual and physical vantage points. Stovall uses a large format camera to document the American architectural vernacular. Sharply cut, deeply saturated colored shapes of building, sign, sky, door, window and shadow, are fixed with an intensity that feels otherworldly, monumental and hometown ordinary all at once.
