Chris Duncan at Headlands Center For the Arts

As part of his residency at Headlands Center For the Arts, Chris Duncan will use the sun, time, architecture, landscape, and the history of the region to create These Are Not Fall Colors. Duncan, traditionally a painter, will employ a variety of techniques such as rubbings, field recordings & sound experiments, and long term sun exposure “paintings”, which will result in a collection of visual and sonic stories. Duncan’s “sun exposures” are created by placing colored fabrics in windows or wrapping them around objects; without the use of dye, emulsion, or any purposefully manipulated chemical process, imagery emerges on them through a combination of time and ultraviolet exposure. As homage to the power of the sun, the works also provide a haunting intimacy and a new perspective of the objects and spaces used in the process of their making. In keeping with his practice, Duncan will organize a series of performances/screenings.

In Progress: September 18–October 27
Opening Reception: October 30, 3–5PM
(stay for dinner! Sunday Supper event starts at 5:30PM—learn more)
On View: Through November 17

Tim Bavington Acquired by Denver Art Museum

The gallery is pleased to announce the Denver Art Museum‘s acquisition of Tim Bavington‘s work, “Purple Rain (studio working study)″ ( 2013), for their permanent collection. 

The Denver Art Museum is an educational, nonprofit resource that sparks creative thinking and expression through transformative experiences with art. Its holdings reflect the city and region—and provide invaluable ways for the community to learn about cultures from around the world. Its mission is to enrich the lives of present and future generations through the acquisition, presentation, and preservation of works of art, supported by exemplary scholarship and public programs related to both its permanent collections and to temporary exhibitions presented by the museum.

Music is the genesis of Tim Bavington’s paintings. Through synthetic polymer paint, Bavington acts as a translator between the aural and the visual as he transforms guitar solos, melodies and bass lines into vertical bands of color. Tracks from bands such as The Darkness, Oasis and The Rolling Stones become vibrant bands of color, and bridge compositional concepts between seemingly unlike disciplines. Although Bavington has a method that designates sound to color and composition, the paintings are not literal translations; they remain open to intuition and decision-making, allowing for a distinct artistic presence.
