Arty Girl: Hector Ruiz and DOSE at Bentley
|"El Viaje (Coyote)" by Hector Ruiz & DOSE|
Yep, the exhibition, "colLABORation" certainly has a dual nature.
According to Bentley, the mash-up has produced intensely visual works "critiquing the hypocrisy, greed and racism of modern American society. The resulting works explore the process, or, 'labor' involved in studio art as well as push the ideas of for whom art is made and by whom it can be accessed."
That's quite a chunk of material to chew and I'm interested to see how these two artists have pulled it off.
Scottsdale's Bentley Gallery will celebrate the opening tomorrow night (Thursday, Nov. 5th) from 7-9 p.m. Both artists will be there to present the small paintings and works on paper from this series.
Then, Friday night (Nov.6th) from 6-9 p.m., Bentley Projects in Phoenix will host the second part of the show's opening. There, we'll find the large-scale paintings the two artists produced. Again, both artists will be at the opening.
