Flatbed is pleased to offer an exhibition of work created at Flatbed by many of the artists featured in the recently published FLATBED AT 25 by Mark Lesley Smith and Katherine Brimberry. Scroll below for a sampling of the artists and works to be included.

Lavishly illustrated and printed, Flatbed Press at 25 presents a quarter-century retrospective of the press’s productions. The book features the prints of thirty-five prominent artists who have collaborated with the press, each represented by full-color plates and a lively reminiscence by Smith and Brimberry that describes the process of working with the artist. Eighty additional artists are also included with a single print and documentary details. Susan Tallman’s introduction places Flatbed in a national context, defines its uniqueness, and discusses many of the outstanding artworks that have been created there. Photographs of the facilities and equipment, technical processes, and artists and printers at work, as well as a chronology and glossary, complete the volume.

  COMMON LANGUAGE | Suzi Davidoff and Rachelle Thiewes as Razi Project
November 8 - December 31, 2016
6 - 8 pm
Artist Reception on November 12

Common Language exhibits work by West Texas artists Suzi Davidoff and Rachelle Thiewes, collaborating together as Razi Projects. Spanning Finland and West Texas, Common Language consists of site-specific land-based installations documented by large scale photographs printed on aluminum, a twin-screen video projection, and a limited edition, hand bound artist book housed in a portfolio containing an original artwork. 

In addition to this monumental collaboration, the exhibition includes individual works on paper and sculptural kinetic jewelry by Davidoff and Thiewes, respectively. 

Common Language runs from November 8th to December 31st, with an Artist’s Reception the evening of November 12th from 6-8pm. The artists will be in attendance. A special viewing of the Common Languages twin-screen projection will take place throughout the evening of the Artist’s Reception. 

 

Suzi Davidoff’s multi-media works on paper explore themes of structure and perception of the natural world, often incorporating found organic materials collected on walks within the West Texas Chihuahuan desert. 

Rachelle Thiewes creates jewelry that is designed to engage and challenge the wearer, making them an active participant, an initiator of sounds and body rhythms.

Mayhem_ Method and Medium _ Mike O’Brien
 
  Mayhem, Method and Medium | Mike O’Brien
October 21 - December 31, 2016

Mike O’Brien’s two-dimensional works are a unification of sculpture, painting, and photography. He creates abstract dioramas upon a 6 foot by 2 foot tall stage where compositions are built using paper and canvas pieces he has painted or drawn upon, then torn, warped, and crushed. These manipulated paper and canvas pieces are arranged into compelling scenes that are photographed and printed. The process of transforming two-dimensional space into three-dimensional space, and back again in the final printed image is a theme that O’Brien embraces. “I like the questions that arise from the finished print. What kind of space is this? Where is the background? I like the energy that the twisted paper and fabric imply. Some forms remind me of dancers at a honky tonk and at the same time take me back to my boyhood hunting turtles and snakes along the bayous of Texas and Louisiana.” 

O’Brien began his mixed media work during his time studying fine arts at the University of Houston. Following his time at UH he relocated to Austin and became a sculptor for the Texas State Parks and Wildlife Department. Over the next 23 years he fabricated everything from life-sized plastic house flies to eleven foot high mammoths cast in bronze, crisscrossing the state learning its rich and varied natural and cultural histories. Following a devastating automobile accident in 2013, O’Brien returned to his interest in mixed media artwork, bringing to his studio practice the specialization and interest acquired during his time as a sculptor, specifically his time constructing dioramas. “When finished the dioramas become worlds unto themselves where time stops and all action is frozen. I realized that I felt the same way about these dioramas as I did about my abstract multimedia artwork.

Mayhem, Method and Medium runs from October 21st to December 31st, with an Artist’s Reception the evening of October 21st from 6-8pm. The artist will be in attendance.
