Cranky Yellow can get with some contemporary abstract work being created around Saint Louis; especially if it doesn’t make us want to puke in pretension. Before you get any pre-conceived conceptions of what abstract is doing in and around here lets talk:
Lyndsey Scott has given up traditional teaching for a learning/traveling self-educational course to interact in a collaborative way with neighborhood peeps and cross-disciplinary journey-ists like herself.
We’re showing her infamous and endlessly collaborative God Molecule piece in the window this month (installing now). If you want to draw on it or add some of your personal flare, just stop in!
Peter Seligman is selling/showing some work in our shop that is without manifesto or agenda. Only trying to offer affordable art to the masses with a pinch of pop-experimental tracks for enjoyment. It’s nice, crisp and easy to consume!!
Smuddos is one part old-school prolific shell construction and one part DIY electrical engineering. The shrines, mirrors and accessible night-lighting are are both endlessly conversational and whimsical! We’re showing a small collection of variously priced lights and buckets!
Long time friend of Cranky Yellow, Jeremy Rabus, recently updated his website to showcase an ever growing portfolio of soft acid-dream landscapes. The billowing clouds and floating bacteria like modules make us want to play Mario on SNES… Or maybe we’re sick. Check out his website for more!
Finally, if you’re still craving quality abstract work in STL, consider supporting the lovely Hoffmann Lachance Contemporary Gallery! They are always pushing great new work into the public’s face and totally worth supporting! The two photos above are from 2010 shows they’ve hosted Jon Cournoyer and Christoopher Burch. GO GO 2011 and future of Abstract!!!
