Roll Up Gallery will host painter Brian Leo’s art installation entitled, “Winners Are the New Losers”. The artist will be exhibiting small to medium-sized paintings.

Brian Leo’s paintings are a mixture of abstract and literal ideas, clever associations and juxtaposed interpretations that read as social commentary and political satire along with depictions that are interesting takes on common situations.

This exhibition includes a painting of a person in a bomb suit surrounded by suitcases, a chainsaw floating above a bison head, and a portrait of Donald Trump’s immigrant mother with a bottle and cigarette in hand. All his paintings, canvases that are colorful and imaginative, calls into question our collective consciousness and challenges viewers to take a closer look – both at the artwork and at their own belief systems.

“My work includes appropriating imagery and content from advertisements, the news, internet and pop culture, which I alter and give new meaning to. … Read more ›

A group exhibition by:
Annamarie Pabst

Presenting portraits rendered from mugshots taken inside S-21 Prison during the 1970’s Cambodian Genocide.  The faces display a resilient fight to survive despite the nightmarish conditions of their imprisonment.  The black negative space represents the imminence of death and disappearance.  The inmates emerge from the shadows in defiance to reveal their identity.

“Staring Out Loud”, solo exhibition by Marty McCutcheon.
Marty McCutcheon’s paintings are inspired by a long-standing admiration of printed letter forms and a budding love of literature. Richly textured with subtly scintillating color, these paintings are magnified, impressionistic representations of letters and words printed on the pages of books. The textual content is sourced from literature listened to while working at home and in the studio— thus, these are words the painter originally heard, rather than read. The chosen texts recall memorable, meaningful passages, but are composed in four and five line fragments, in order to obscure, but not obliterate, their specific origins.

With “Staring Out Loud”, Roll Up Gallery offers a unique contemplative experience of the power of written words and the beautiful shape of letterforms.

Marty McCutcheon is a California-based artist producing abstract paintings, three-dimensional and collaborative artworks, photography and art videos. His work has been exhibited across the U.S. and internationally.
