Cinders Gallery Presents:
C.H.U.D.Z. with Alex Barry, Richard Colman, Josh Slater
All three artists create whole worlds of their own iconography amidst a mysterious, playful and at times dystopic backdrop of a fantastical future. Pyramids, outer-space, 2-headed creatures, seemingly functional mechanisms, and nonsensical architecture are all prevalent in each of these artists' worlds. Alex Barry marries a biting sense of self-deprecating humor with the truly bizarre and surreal in his darker drawings and watercolors on paper. Richard Colman creates hyper-busy cyber punked landscapes where fleshy organs, melting colors, bursting rainbows, and people in their underwear hang out in a suspension of time and reality. Josh Slater's drawings and collages feature calmer, more muted tones in his desolate landscapes of pyramids and buildings. We find explosions of stars, shrines perhaps awaiting alien visitation, stairs that lead to nowhere and architecture that eschews realism for new ideas of space.
