It’s A Colorful World
At Denver International Airport Main Terminal Gallery
November 22, 2017 – March 31, 2018
Michael Warren Contemporary (MWC) is pleased to present “It’s a Colorful World.” For most of us, color plays an important role in the way we perceive the world. As children we develop our understanding of the world establishing color associations with most of the things that we can touch, taste, smell and even hear. Think of an apple…what color popped into your mind? A Rubber duck? A swimming pool? The grass under your feet? As you continue on your travels, you will probably think of many more. The artists in this exhibit explore the ways colors sit together and how they make us feel.
Melanie Rothschild, a Los Angeles-based artist, takes seemingly spontaneous paint pours, let’s them dry as skins and then uses them as constructive elements to make her final compositions, on panel, metal fabrications, and suspended in air.
William Loveless lives in the Yucca Valley of southern California. His glue paintings present a patterned realm of action and reaction. They involve a wet-on-wet technique which yields a luminous surface of milky translucence in which richly-hued inks and watercolors are suspended.
Colby Brumit is a Denver-based mixed media artist and graphic designer. After obtaining a B.A. in art history (University of Colorado, Boulder) and a B.F.A. in printmaking (Metropolitan State University of Denver. His colorful portraits are pieced together with magazines, posters, his own printed imagery, maps, notes and even Bingo Cards. In his other life, he maintains a graphic design practice and has designed for Denver International Airport and Metropolitan State University of Denver.
Ted Laredo lives in Albuquerque. He produces saturated color fields and line drawings that are purposefully minimal. Laredo is concerned with the act of experiencing his works without the distraction of deciphering meaning or content. Mono-diptychs, Laredo’s works are covered in phosphorescent micro beads that read different ways throughout the day and then shimmer with an ethereal inner-light at night.
Raul de la Torre, a Catalonian artist now living in Los Angeles, begins with brightly- colored paint sequences on canvas. De la Torre then cuts out sections of his work only to reestablish the composition by embroidering yarns to match the colors of the paints.
MWC presents contemporary artwork with emphasis on materials and process. The gallery also showcases many artists in the additional viewing rooms in the back of the gallery. MWC consigns an extensive collection of fine art prints from career artists practicing all over the world.
