Kris Lee just finished a large commission for a collector in San Francisco. The new piece, “Tree of Life,” was 4’ x 6’ work on canvas, backlit with LEDs. The piece was inspired by an Iranian rug owned by the collector and featured some designs found in it. Materials used in the artwork include: leaf skeletons, polymer clay, and ceramic tiles, all coated in liquid copper.
Thank you to Stephanie Sadler, owner of the Teal Gallery in Breckenridge, CO for coordinating this commission. Please read more about it in the Teal Gallery blog! | Teal Art Gallery
Also…two additional new pieces by WildSide Studio have gone display this month. “Ignition,” a 40”x45” graffiti-inspired, mixed media work on canvas is now on exhibit at Ember Restaurant, in Breckenridge. Ember is a terrific new restaurant and bar owned by Scott Boshaw with a globally influenced menu. Post-modern, contemporary artwork there is provided by Teal Gallery. | Ember Restaurant
The other new piece, “Confidante,” has just gone on display at Teal Gallery, in Breckenridge. Materials used in the work on canvas include hand-embossed copper, barbed wire coated in liquid copper, broken china, and a collaged charcoal drawing. The artwork explores the theme of the decision to confide in others, the dangers, and possible consequences of exposing vulnerabilities.
All the beautiful hand-blown glass used in Kris Lee’s work is furnished by glassblower John Hudnut of the Gatherhouse, in Frisco, Colorado. | Gatherhouse
