What's more, Green Oregon is a tightly curated show in a interesting space with some excellent artists
like Robert Adams, Patrick Rock, Justin "Scrappers" Morrison, PORT's
own Ryan Pierce, Marne Lucas and the region's dean of eco art Bruce Conkle,
etc. For me Bailey Winter's painting is the standout. It is anguished
over the environment, just plain weird... conjuring both David Lynch and John Wesley and most likely extremely
stoned. The effect is troubling, frank, omnipresent and a bit overwhelming...
which is exactly like having a discussion about ecology and art the related
to it in Oregon. Check it out.
The Manuel Izquierdo Gallery is located in PNCA's 3D Building (825 NW 13th)
and will be open Thursday - Sunday, 1pm to 5PM or by appointment. (hint ring
It was really exciting how many shows opened this month that glorify (and some making fun of) Oregon and it's ultimate awesomeness. This was a very well curated show, and I agree with you Jeff, Bailey Winters just blows my mind every time I see a painting of his.
You can see some photos of the show on Openwide: http://www.openwidepdx.com/?p=324
Definitely worth a peek, so everyone can see Bailey's work.
