Beautiful Angle 9.20.18

Sixteen Years in the Making
Beautiful Angle at Fulcrum Gallery
September 20th – October 12th
Public Reception: September 20th 6 – 9pm

Join Lance Kagey, Tom Llewellyn, and the rest of the Beautiful Angle family for a rare fine art show at Fulcrum Gallery.

Instead of the typical large-runs of posters you are familiar with, we will be displaying and selling one-of-a-kind originals. The first layer on each piece was laid down as many as sixteen years ago. Over the following months and years, additional layers of Beautiful Angle imagery, colors, and type were added.

Each one is different. Each one is connected. Each original piece documents the month-by-month history of this Tacoma-based street art project, one layer of ink at a time.

– A Glitch Portrait Series –

August 25th – September 16th
Public Reception: August 25th 3:00-7:00pm
Fulcrum Gallery 10yr. Anniversary Party 7:00 -2:00am

∅Φσþς “Removing a face doesn’t remove the identity of the image, on the contrary it unlocks it. With these initial constraints removed opportunities are fertile for abstracting, fracturing and multiplying an images “identity”. The result is a multi dimensional conversation opening up new and wider lanes for both the image and the observer” – Jo Bazuka

Jo Bazuka is unapologetic as an artist, creating work that strikes in the moment is contemporary, and shifts effortlessly through a variety of mediums. Music is his primary catalyst driving all other artistic endeavors. MC’ing, dance, graffiti and tattooing have all been linked through this thread of sound. The “Glitch Portraits” series of visual works arose when all other previous avenues appeared blocked. This new medium follows suit, with the musical thread influencing even the smallest facets, a digitized amalgamation of music, colour, fashion, creation and destruction. Embodying Hip-Hop and lo-fi’s sample based nature, punk rock’s “color outside the lines”, anti-authoritarian overtones, vivid bass and glitch inspired textures and effects, the cool feels of reggae, dub and the abstract improvisational sprit of jazz.

The White Series

New Works by R.A.Turner

The White Series / Salmon Beach Retrospective

Feb 15th – March 15th 2018
Public Reception: Feb 15th 6:00-9:00

Like Commencement Bay on a still and misty morning the “White Series” captures the subtle beauty of the Pacific Northwest. These ethereal low relief paintings give the sense of a secret, barely obscured, to be revealed at any moment. Richard Turner has been greatly influenced by his experience at Salmon Beach and its intimate connection with nature. This experience has molded him into a uniquely creative individual, part explorer, part developer and part witness to the irresistible natural forces that surround us.

 

“For some time I have been acutely aware of urban noise. I even went to the Arizona desert searching for quiet. Much of the white series is my attempt at quiet. The Salmon Beach paintings are as a result of working up images for our annual rowboat race posters. I have had one shack or another at Salmon Beach for 56 years and the ever-changing land, sea, and sky compositions are part of me. This motif can be seen in both the realistic work & the White Series. It’s all about light, some inner, some outer.” – R.A.Turner
