Lucky DeBellevue will hold a Visiting Artist Talk on Wed., April 6, 2016, at 6 pm in Alta Ham Fine Arts (HFA) room 257. DeBellevue is UNLV’s current artist-in-residence, and one of the artists to be featured in “Five” an exhibition of paintings, sculptures, videos, installations, and photographs from contemporary artists working out of Los Angeles and New York. “Materiality, attitude, and wit tie their work together, as well as their past participation in the ongoing UNLV Artist-in-Residence Program,” says the release. “Five” opens May 20 and run through September 10, 2016 in the Main Gallery of the Barrick Museum.
The full list of artists for “Five”:
Deborah Aschheim is a multi media artist whose works explore the many permutations of memory as subject matter. Her delicately constructed architectural sculptures tower over the viewer with ghostly suggestions of familiar places. Aschheim lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2015.
Erin Cosgrove is an artist and writer who uses video, animation, books, painting, scrolls, timelines, installation, and performance in her artwork. Her videos and Urfather sculptures merge satire, philosophy, mythology, and history. Cosgrove lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2013.
Lucky DeBellevue’s densely patterned installations level high and low art hierarchies. He has an ever expanding vocabulary of materials, including chenille stems, pistachio shells, and wood veneer. DeBellevue lives and works in New York City. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2016.
Ash Ferlito synthesizes popular culture and craft traditions with textiles, patches, and oil paint. Her videos, wall sculptures, and paintings embody an unrestricted attitude, a punchy pop palette and untethered openness to diverse subject matter and interpretation. Ferlito lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2014.
David Gilbert’s work inhabits the space between installation and documentation. Fragments from the artist’s practice are hung, stacked and layered against studio walls, windows, and corners in disheveled yet specific assemblages, then photographed to emphasize the materiality of the objects and the physicality of light. Gilbert lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. From the New York Times, Nov. 19, 2015: “David Gilbert, in his third solo show at this gallery, takes the poet’s stance: His work argues for photography as allegorical and ethereal, and he makes images that are like dream worlds that never existed in the first place.” UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2016.
