Factory Obscura’s Beyond

My brief thoughts on Factory Obscura’s Beyond exhibition during their pass holder preview party on September 21, 2018. Factory Obscura is an Oklahoma City-based art collective creating immersive experiences, challenging the participant to physically explore full-sensory environments.

I’m working on scheduling an interview with some of the creative team behind Factory Obscura for Uncovering Oklahoma.

Shades of Brown

Shades of Brown is a place where you can come and be your total self while having a really good cup of coffee. Owner, Melinda Curren, and barista, Ben Udwin, discuss the vibe this Brookside coffee shop in Tulsa.

I filmed this video the same day I was in Tulsa for the Gathering Place preview. I’m glad I was able to film two stories that day and in Tulsa for that matter, which I normally don’t get around to doing stories there.

Shades of Brown isn’t too far away from the Gathering Place, so if you’re in Tulsa I hope you enjoy the video and check out them both out.

Autumn Pop-Up at Nault Gallery

Autumn Pop Up, a show exhibiting new work from the studios of Anthony Dyke, Susan Morrison-Dyke, Suzanne Mears and Christie Owen, opened on Friday, September 14th from 6 pm to 9 pm at Nault Gallery in Midtown.

All four artists are well-established and highly visible artists in the Oklahoma City metro area and beyond. The show offers a beautiful exhibition consisting of large and small abstract paintings that share a common connecting thread when hung together. The tactile and visceral paintings, create a strong impression of kindred spirits among the four artists and their love for the physical act of painting. These artists take their work to a place where the viewer is allowed to simply enjoy the physicality of the medium, the lushness of paint and brushstrokes cutting contours to create form and space in fields of spatial ambiguity. The generous wall space, loft-like ceilings an abundance of beautiful, natural light at Nault Gallery, the artists believe provide the ideal atmosphere in which to view their works.

This may not look like it, which is the intention after all, but I’m proud of how well I edited all four of their statements together. I was experimented with a different color correction tool, adjusting curves, and I like how more blended the image looks.
