Everything: New Work by Drew Austin ReCreative Denver (765 Santa Fe Dr, Denver, CO) July 7 – 28, 2017
Opening Reception July 7th 6-10pm
Light Refreshments Provided
This collection of new works by Denver-based Drew Austin will include sculptural latex objects, small drawings on paper, as well as large-scale paintings on wood panel.
From included artist statement:
“I am beginning to interpret the way birds move into visual shape, connecting that to smoke trails, and then seeing a connection to the path a river takes through a canyon. Volcanoes look like lakes from an aerial perspective and tree bark is as similar to the lines within each humans’ hands as it is to its own roots that stick out of the ground. Straight graphic lines resemble lines found in a field of felled trees after a wildfire and washes of color appear in the cosmos as often as on an artist’s canvas.
These connections are what I am seeking with the work presented in Everything. Viewers should look at the art, leave the exhibition, and continue to see moments presented in the art within their everyday context, beginning their own process of collection, interpretation, creation, and connection much the way that I did creating this work.”
Drew Austin is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Denver, CO. Growing up in Great Falls, MT, he moved to Colorado to pursue a degree at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, which he will graduate from this August.
His work focuses on experience filtered through his own personal lens and revolves heavily around relationships between self, humans, their connection to the natural world.
