Without You Here We Are , a show by Christian Hansen and Ryann Donnelly
Opening Reception Saturday March 13th, 7p-9p
Show runs from March 13th through April 5th 2010
Christian Hansen and Ryann Donnelly are two artists from different fields, film and music respectively. Without You Here We Are is an experiment for both artists, an exploration into a new medium. Here they emphasize the use of basic lines and shapes, incorporating elements of glass and phrases in search of ways to grapple with their own experiences on set and on tour.
"By trade I make things to look at, movies mostly but also still images of sorts. My venture into painting on glass arose out of a love for typography and the need to constantly experiment. It began with optical titles, a dance film, and a picture I found while snooping on my friends computer. It now continues with chemical inhalation headaches and somewhat improved line work. This work or experiment rather is very much in progress, however I generally find the process just as fascinating, if not more so, than the final product. Perhaps you agree?
Ryann Donnelly can sing better than she can draw. She has been in a band for over 10 years, and draws about weird stuff from tour. She majored in art history, really likes Man Ray, and is really sorry about having an art show even though she can't draw faces, common house pets, or fine landscapes. Apologies. Hope ya like the broken glass.
