The Art of War

New Paintings by JOLT

Exhibition:December 12th, 2015-Jan 24th, 2016

Opening Reception: December 12th, 2015 7-11pm

Artist Statement:

The only way to win the war with ones self and to process that struggle through art is with strategy. The ability to strategize expressing your deepest emotions and gain a new understanding from that process yet walk away the victor of your own personal battle can only begin with not only knowledge of self, but knowledge of your craft. I battle against myself and the system that I was born into. I battle with wild style letters and their symbolic warfare against any standardization enforced by the rules of the alphabet and its oppressive nature by arming those letters with arrows, shields, and by manipulating the angles. I defend myself with symbolic masks that sometimes mirror the adversary opposing me, represent my emotions and look to human ancestry for the necessary symbology to face spiritual dilemmas. I’m often the casualty of the wars in which I choose to engage. Strategy is always at the forefront of that engagement, the ability to express deep emotional turmoil and advance ones technical ability while conquering all fears and challenges is what brings the war into art and the strategy of The Art of War into my work.

Opening Reception: November 7th, 2015  7pm -  

Left Ajar: Plastic Old and Our Bright Shiny Future Together is an installation of artifacts, effigies, and paintings. It is a reflection, a visual cacophony bound to harmonious rhythm. This show contains figuration, texture, space, memory, narrative, history, fiction. Severed heads, severed images, horses, nudes, babies, goats, visual histories, and gods. It contains evil. It’s about power. The work is candy coated with vibrant, sweet and sour color.

On Exhibition: June 13th - July 11th, 2015

This is Jackie Barry's first solo show in Denver. As she describes, "this grandiose statement echoes a sentiment I witness in my media-driven generation: a generation that thrives off of larger-than-life, often misguided declarations of adoration.
It is my experience that this is a product of the denial of self-love. The result is a perpetual projection of lofty promises and false affectations toward other people exhibiting the ways in which we wish to love ourselves.
This is about the struggle of selfish vs. selfless love."

Opening Reception and Exhibition of "CAMP" New Paintings by Rene Farkass

Join us at Leon on Saturday, June 6th, from 7-10 pm for the closing reception of CAMP, an exhibition of new paintings by Rene Farkass.

On Exhibition May 9th, 2015 - June 7th, 2015

With a distinctive style that sets him apart in both tone and personality, Rene Farkass has been a recognized artist in the alternative Denver art scene for over 15 years.

Both Rene's drawing and painting styles are linear in nature, usually with an emphasis on a contoured, illustrative approach to the subject matter. The composition is usually stylized and incorporated in a loosely patterned color theme or in an appropriated text-based background.What fuels Rene as an artist is the daily practice of exploring and crafting beauty through a well-depicted figure and through the relationship the human form has with the shapes and negative spaces of text, sheet music, even cartography. Rene's personal definition of art is that it is a relationship. Art is also a discovery process, and every one of his pieces is created as a discovery of the human figure, human emotions, or human surroundings. It is a process of humans seeing themselves through the connections between creator and creativity, artist and artwork, painter and audience, and artwork and audience. All of these processes are in relationship with their surrounding physical, spatial and temporal environments.
