Crappy Magic, new works by David Hellams
August 1 - 30, 2015
Opening reception: Saturday, August 1, 7:00 - 11:00 pm
Live(In) Gallery announces its July show, Crappy Magic, new works by David Hellams. David Hellams makes art out of, and about, stuff. Each painting, photograph, and video presents a collection of consumer goods as a distinct aesthetic proposition. The works vary from paintings of meditative furniture arrangements, to musical animations and snapshots taken at thrift outlets. These projects coalesce into a broad and continually expanding catalog of manufactured consumer goods. Hellams works to salvage the imaginative value in things by incorporating them into playful forms that suggest an interactive world of variety and possibility.
Copies of the artist’s publication Crappy Magic will be on hand at the opening.
David Hellams is an artist living in Nashville, Tennessee. Further images of his work can be found at the artist website, http://davidhellams.com/. For more information on Crappy Magic please visit http://crappymagic.tumblr.com/.
