Giant Robot is proud to present Future Fictions, a group show featuring original art by Melinda Beck, Katherine Guillen, Ethan Hayes-Chute, James Kirkpatrick, and Kathleen Lolley at GRNY.
Melinda Beck is a Brooklyn-based illustrator and graphic designer whose playful, blocky paintings hint at mod and sculptural influences. Her work has been commissioned by Nike, The New York Times, and ID Magazine.
Katherine Guillen’s translucent-but-dark hues depict subjects such as manual labor and bullies, as well as floods and other forms of nature in an unflinching, subtly humorous manner.
Ethan Hayes-Chute paints colorful, spacious, otherwordly landscapes, makes 3D pieces, and self-publishes art and comic books. In 2005, he relocated from New England to Berlin.
James “Thesis” Kirkpatrick transfers the spirit of his trainyard-based character-driven art onto gallery walls by scratching into and carving up built-up layers of paper and acrylic paint.
Kathleen Lolley is a Kentucky-based artist, animator, and comic-book maker whose two-dimensional characters painted on old parchment paper suggest a fanciful but complex narrative.
A reception for the artists will be held from 6:30 to 10:00 on Saturday, July 21. For more information about the show, the artists, GRNY, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact GRNY at 212-674-4769 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
