Treasure Frey and Kyle Jorgensen "Chromatics and Canopies" exhibition at Gallery Hijinks

Chromatics and Canopies
Treasure Frey and Kyle Jorgensen

January 7th through January 28th 2012
Opening: January 7th 2012, 6-10pm

Gallery Hijinks is proud to present Chromatics and Canopies a two person exhibition by Treasure Frey and Kyle Jorgensen. Frey’s most recent body of work interprets the concept of rainbows contained, a personal ode to rainbows attempting to capture their fleeting beauty and hold it a moment longer. Jorgensen’s collection of new paintings draw inspiration from both the constructed world, natural symbols, and the enigmatic nature of the cosmos. Both Frey and Jorgensen paint in similar styles with vibrant colors and flat graphic objects, and employ the notions of energy and geometry in the creation of their works. Please join us for the opening reception on January 7th, 2012 from 6-10pm.

A continuation of her inner dialog, Treasure Frey’s collages made with walnut stained paper, acrylic paint and varnish are a layered joining of separate entities: color, shape, and negative space. A visible translation of energy forms multi-faceted polychromatic labyrinths, allowing the viewer to follow the lines and colors, silencing the cacophony of the mind by focusing on a chosen path. Geometric lines, architectural design and repeating patterns of bold color create a third dimension in Kyle Jorgensen’s newest collection of acrylic paintings. Within the starry galaxies of a midnight aurora borealis an un-earthly mass of land floats into existence. Bold lines of cantilevered buildings, the detailed patch of doug fir trees on the crest of the hill, and the expansive unending universe, are all sources of stimulation for Kyle Jorgensen’s work. Drawing from his surroundings, the artist examines both the constructed world and natural symbols.

The exhibition opens January 7th, 2012 and will be on display until January 28th, 2012 and is open to the public.
