    Episode 76: Chris Pappan, The Motion of Breathing

    Internationally known for his innovative approach that revolutionizes this traditional medium, Pappan’s artwork transcends limits as deftly as it highlights them. “As in historical examples of ledger art, the image takes precedence in my work, but I still attempt to preserve the essence of the ledger. The sections intended to separate and categorize information now work to distort my figures. I am appropriating the ledger’s grid pattern and using it to test the boundaries that define the genre.”

    Episode 73: Brad Overton

    Episode 73: Brad Overton

    Blue Rain Gallery is thrilled to announce an important new exhibition featuring five captivating paintings by acclaimed artist Brad Overton. Drawing inspiration from the golden era of pin-up pop art in the 1950s-60s, Overton presents a contemporary interpretation, skillfully blending high-art techniques with bold visual imagery. Channeling influences from iconic pin-up artists like Mel Ramos and Gil Elvgren, Overton elevates the legendary form with highly stylized, graphic elements, employing technical figure drawing and a carefully curated palette. Reminiscent of American cigarette advertisements and movie posters, these nostalgic yet fun works showcase Overton's tongue-in-cheek humor and straightforward visual approach. With themes of the Southwest and the open road, the paintings collectively offer a playful and erotic journey through quintessential American subject matter. The exhibition will be on display at Blue Rain Gallery Santa Fe from February 23rd to March 8th, with an opening reception on Friday, February the 23rd from 5-7pm.

His meticulous strokes create a visual narrative that transcends the canvas, transporting viewers to a vintage Americana era where the open road symbolized freedom and adventure, making each piece a timeless testament to the enduring spirit of the American road.
