Clark Vreeland Ashes to Ashes Opening Reception May 7, 2010
6:00PM - 9:00PM
Price:  FREE
Photobucket

Clark Vreeland's work is intentionally flat, leaving paint as the only distinguishable feature on its surface. Any perceived depth is accidental and in the mind. The paint serves no illusion and no reference, except to itself. The one exception is the symbolic language that has developed throughout the work. Vreeland roots these symbols in the observation of different types of energy.

Vreeland's work involves a neurotic process that has continued throughout his life. Starting with drawings, then paintings, he repetitively assigns meaning to symbols that evolve by studying their movement and repetitive appearance. The forms and significance that the symbols take on is a naturally occurring process of distilling order from "intention." The drawings on paper, in particular, create a personal cuneiform that is sorting and ordering chaos.

The process is even further defined by the singular elements depicted. Vreeland arrived at a gestural picture language, which are the large symbols. Each one is accompanied by a short paragraph describing its concept or meaning. The drawings are the drafts for the large symbol paintings. And as the symbol is realized in the work, the symbol and it's meaning are edited with much more intent.

In another series of two-inch-thick polystyrene paintings, Vreeland ventures into the world of urban cultural icons. These pieces are informed by the external, and they reference a slightly urban aesthetic as Vreeland submits to cultural osmosis and an awareness of the "public." But even with environmental influences, the process of ordering energy is still derivative of his previous methods.

Multimedia artist Clark Vreeland has been active in the Atlanta arts scene since the mid-1970s. He is now working and exhibiting in Atlanta and New Orleans. His oil, acrylic, and electronic works reflect observations about how we order our visual world. He is also one of the founding members of Atlanta-based nonprofits Public Domain, Inc., and RailRoad Earth, Inc.

PLATINUM CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING

Photobucket

Professional Wrestling is a part of Georgia's artistic, sports, and cultural history, but the current form of so-called "sports entertainment" from the two national companies show little respect or acknowledgement of pro wrestling's storied past. Platinum Championship Wrestling strives to change the entire face and structure of pro wrestling by presenting shows that not only feature the excitement and physical skill of modern wrestling, but create the kind of audience interaction and involvement that made wrestling great in days past. Platinum Championship Wrestling is saving pro wrestling, once match at a time.

Terry Hardy Opening Reception May 22, 2010
6:00PM - 9:00PM
Price:  FREE


SAVED

Opening Reception May 22nd 6pm-9pm

Having been condemned to hell by his parents 3 years ago for his "lifestyle" choice, "SAVED" explores the notions of religion, denial and hypocrisy in regards to the symbolic closet as safe spiritual sanctuary or repressive religious refuge. Exploration of the history of his life and sexuality has come front and center in his work over the past 5 years, at times, uncomfortably autobiographical as he continue to breakdown the religion and repression he has struggled with his entire life. "SAVED" helps to shed light on such hypocrisies as the church continues to deny and cover up any wrong doings.

Terry S. Hardy is a painter, assemblage and installation artist. Born in Vernon, Alabama he has participated in more than 60 exhibitions. Terry's interest in public/installation art continues to grow as his work becomes more autobiographical and delves deeper into his life long struggles with religion, relationships and sexuality.

On display in Eyedrum's small gallery through Sat June 26th.
