by Ryan Travis Christian
Approaching his work as a painter, and finishing as a cartoonist, Ryan creates an abstract problem for himself when developing his pieces, solving them through the incorporation of representational elements. Including historically loaded figures like naked women, water birds and snakes, his works create new historical dimensions for these figures, as well as open the range of interpretation of them for viewers. Through patterns and comic art references, Ryan develops surreal narratives that include characters that represent everyone, no one or something amorphous.
Ryan Travis Christian has had solo exhibitions at galleries such as Western Exhibitions in Chicago, POVEvolving in Los Angeles, and EBERSMOORE in Chicago. He lives and works in the Chicago area.
“Sound and Shape”
by Chris Duncan & Jason Michael Leggiere
Chris Duncan has had solo exhibitions at galleries such as Baer Ridgeway Exhibitions and Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco, Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York, Motel Gallery in Portland, Lump gallery in Raleigh, and Nakaochiai Gallery in Tokyo. His work is included in the collection of the Berkeley Art Museum. Duncan was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, and currently lives and works in Oakland, CA.
Jason Michael Leggiere grew up on the late eighties punk and alternative rock scene in Los Angeles before moving to San Francisco to study painting at the SFAI. He was the director of a small contemporary art gallery called Quotidian for five years. He continues to live and paint, as well as raise a family and build his own tube audio equipment, in San Francisco.
Over the duration of the exhibition, Guerrero Gallery will host several performances by local musicians invited by Duncan and Leggiere. While some performances will incorporate it as a primary instrument, others will include it as a conceptual invocation of sound by its mere presence.
