Fases and Vaces I've Been
Carrie Secrist Gallery proudly presents our debut exhibition with Los Angeles-based artist Ryan Fenchel, Fases and Vaces I’ve Been, on view from February 13 – March 28, 2015.
Please join us for a reception for the artist on Friday the 13th of February from 5-8 PM.
Ryan Fenchel: Fases and Vaces I’ve Been comprises a new body of drawings depicting shapes that resemble vessels – jars, flasks, vases and pitchers. Executed in chalk pastel and oil pastel, the cryptological images yield a purposefully awkward sense of space and balance. Driven by a confluence of tropes, including alchemy, secret societies, Cubism and Surrealism, and natural science, Fenchel connects and combines known forms and meanings in order to generate unfamiliar values and interpretations.
Ryan Fenchel (b. 1981, United States) lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. He completed an MFA in Art Theory and Practice from Northwestern University in 2007. Past exhibitions include Dan Devening Projects, LVL3, and Roots & Culture in Chicago, IL as well as Bodega, Philadelphia, PA; Control Room, Los Angeles, CA; and Gallery Yasashii Yokan, Tokyo, Japan. Fases and Vaces I’ve Been is the artist’s first solo exhibition with Carrie Secrist Gallery.
