Alley-Oop is an exhibition of collaborative work created by Eric Trine and Will Bryant.

In Fall 2011, both of these dudes moved to Portland, Oregon for graduate school. Eric is from Southern California and typically works in sculpture, furniture, and environments. Will is from East Texas and has a practice rooted in illustration, graphic design, and art direction. Though they attend different schools in Portland, their paths often cross, their social circles overlap, and their criss-cross-overlap has blossomed into a whirlwind of high-fives, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle anecdotes, b-ball You Tubes, and buckets of laughter. As their friendship grew, talks of a collabo laced every hangout. Something was bound to happen. It was just a matter of time (and space).

Eric, Will and Poketo share an ethos that a life well-lived comes from the infusion of good art, good friends, and good vibes! As Charles Eames once said, “Take your pleasure seriously.” As someone important once said, “Form follows fun!” The work in this exhibition is the truest combination of the artists’ creative whims: colors, materials, subject matter—it’s an equilibrium, it’s a twister, it’s a day-glo refraction of positivity and goodness.

The artists influenced each other, developing pieces and remixing in real time, yielding a mega variety of multi-media, multi-dimensional pieces. Two vibes collide in the work, aiming to lighten and brighten moods, days, smiles and lives.

In true Alley-Oop fashion, the assist is as important as the dunk, and it is teamwork that really makes the dreamwork.

OLIVIA KNAPP

Olivia Knapp’s intricate hand drawn pen and ink style is influenced by European line engravings of decorative relief and scientific specimens from the 16th and 17th centuries. Her tight cross hatching technique involves long slow and steady curved lines that articulate the surface contours of her subjects; creating supple and tangible imagery. These un-swelled lines incorporate a “line to dot” rendering method as well as an, extremely rare “dot and lozenge” rendering method. “Dot and lozenge” is a practice that was used by 16th century masters, in which a dot is placed in the center of a diamond shape made by a cross hatching pattern, helping to refine the transition between values.

NOWHERE

NOWHERE explores the nature of the theatrical stage itself, a spatial mechanism continually transformed and redefined by the human presence to denote any place, and yet designed to be a non-place. 26 performers measure and mark out the space using their bodies, pitting themselves against its dimensions and technical capabilities in a site-specific performance that can be presented nowhere else.

NICHOLAS LOCKYER

Visual artist Nicholas Lockyer’s collage work explores the relationship between the saturation point of digitalization in today’s society, Trash Cinema and lowbrow ephemera culture that exists outside the digital world and the themes of primitivism, ritualism, mutation and attitudes towards death.

Z BEHL

Trozos de tela, redes, cuerdas y demás tipos de trapos rotos dibujados por la artista americana Z Behl.

sim | stim

Shifting between auto-eroticism and material fetish, ‘sim/stim’ proposes a cargo cult of sensual nano-alchemy. It celebrates temporary mummification of the body by engaging in an erotic relationship with shape changing clouds of synthetic material. Touching on the topics of body enhancement and death through preservation, sexual attraction is being conserved in floating silicone bubbles; flesh is suspended in ersatz aspic, comparable to an ‘inverse boob job’.

FÁBIO MAGALHÃES

Fábio Magalhães works with self-reference painting. Metaphorically connecting images of his own body, feelings and banal situations, he aims at pointing out conditions inconceivable to be portrayed but through artifices and distortions of reality. As for this, his art pieces are the result of a modus operandi that makes part of the photographic universe and results in a kind of parallel reality, materialized in the universe of painting. In which, he creates contours of a disturbing reality.
