Blue Collar / Meet The Artist / Dec 17th

This Thursday Fulcrum Gallery will be open 6-9 pm for arts walk. We are hosting the continuing exhibition of Blue Collar by Adrian Bouchard. Additionally Adrian will be here giving an informal presentation about his artwork and the artistic processes that lead up to this body of work now on display till January 15th

Adrian Bouchard was born in San Luis Obispo, CA, in 1986. He has been drawing since he was two, and has never stopped creating. Adrian specializes in portraiture using acrylic paints, but also loves ballpoint pen. Over the last four years Adrian has partially transitioned from canvas works in favor of painting on vinyl records and metal plates.

Influenced by many different artists and cultures, Adrian draws inspiration from every period of history, with an emphasis on Art Nouveau and Modern Realism. He loves innovation, learning new ways of creating, and is constantly experimenting with his style. Along with mixing media, Adrian typically uses multiple techniques from different eras, so as to not limit himself when it comes to painting.

Paintings by Adrian Bouchard

Blue Collar is a unique collection of work sourced from the early part of the last century. Period photographs and antique serving platters are wedded, transforming into bold dimensional portraits. Miners, farmers, child workers, and housewives are presented as haunting reflections of hardship and longing juxtaposed within the opulent filigree of service and wealth. Blue Collar reminds us of who we are and where we have come from. This work is especially poignant for today’s culture as we slide into a similar economic dynamic as The Great Depression.

New Work by Scott Nelson

It’s a photographers’ job to capture a moment, but how exactly does one “capture” a moment? The act of plucking emotion from within the context of reality and distilling it into an artifact seems an impossible task, yet Scott accomplishes this and more in his new body of work titled “Here Now Forever”. These artworks are trophies distilled from explorations outside of the bonds of time. Some stretched like exotic animal skins; others composed to form their own visual language. Scott’s pieces offer us an omniscient view of existence, unfettered by the limiting perceptions of our physical being.

“I’m fascinated by time and humankind’s relative understanding of it. As an artist I like to step out of that seemingly one-way stream and to explore my own relationship with things considered temporary and permanent.” –Scott Nelson
