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.

BASIL

The side tables BASIL were born from the desire of Arthur Leitner to use the natural qualities of cork. He has associated the solidity and lightness of a structure in steel with a geometric table top in cork (sphere, pyramid, parallelepiped). The strength of the object comes from its simple aesthetic and it is without complexes that BASIL can move from a side table next to a sofa to a bedside table.
