Fort Works Art is excited to present No Filter, an exhibition featuring the work of artists Kyle Steed and Lisa Krannichfeld. This exhibition will run from March 27, 2019 - May 4, 2019, with an opening reception on Spring Gallery Night, Saturday, March 30, 2019.
The show will explore issues relating to their mutual use of color and mixed media in these stunning paintings and illustrations. The multifaceted nuances will be further highlighted in the contrast between their individual styles and subjects. Steed, a Dallas-based abstract painter and illustrator, explores the constant state of change we all experience over the course of our lives and his practice in learning to let go of the need to control it. With his stark black line work and vibrant use of abrupt colorful paint strokes, Steed compels you to embrace imperfect moments and mistakes that often lead to a new understanding.
Off-setting these works will be the vibrant and pattern-rich figurative works of Arkansas based painter and mixed media artist Lisa Krannichfeld. Focusing on the human form, Krannichfeld approaches her work in a nontraditional uncontrolled, free-flowing way often mixed with unconventional materials. With the desire to reconcile her beliefs and traditions, she creates works with ideas stemming from her growing up in a cultural mix of a Chinese family living in the American South. Her experiences have greatly influenced her work, which primarily focuses on the woman as its subject. Krannichfeld’s direct paintings utilize traditional feminine materials, such as watercolor and collage, to portray women lacking expression and dressed in classic men's attire.
No Filter, on view March 27 through May 4, 2019
Opening Reception on FWADA Spring Gallery Night, March 30, from 12 pm - 9 p.m.
