GROUP SHOW: APRIL & MAY
Opening Reception: April 5th, 2019, 6-9pm
at Redux Gallery
811 East Burnside st #116
Redux is pleased to present our next group show featuring five Portland artists and their amazing mastery of line-work and illustration. Our theme for this show reveals the variety of different methods artists use in defining space, carving out edges, and focusing on an object. “Delineation” describes the action of describing or portraying something precisely. Some illustrate and define an object in it’s buildup of line, dots or shadow, others reveal the object through the suggestion of negative space. Sometimes, emphasis is placed on something by drawing the viewer in with a small pop of color within a sea of Grayscale. Other times special consideration is paid instead to an environment of color, containing an object defined in black and white. In this show we ask artists to illustrate how they tell their own personal story through various methods of illustration.
Join us for the Opening reception in April, or visit during Gallery hours to see these stunning originals as well as some prints in limited supply in person. Show runs for two months, through May, 2019
