Henderson Fine Art Gallery

Now…Rise a Knight

Sept. 6 – Oct 4, 2013

Reception: Sept 6 – 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Travis Bruce Black's "Now... Rise a Knight" is a collection of paintings, ideas and tangents of the experimental and commercial directions he has taken in his 10 year art career. Black will share with the art community his "mainstay" Chirp series and paintings and drawings only a handful of people has seen in effort to layout his creative thought process and varied branches.

His Chirps are a large, around 300 strong, series of birds done with a modernistic puzzle-like amalgamation of shapes that come together into a strangely recognizable and vibrant image. The other branches he proposes to show are mostly from his personal collection of images that range from portraits of his wife to imagination based Knights and Wizards. Black's tendency is to create close images of birds, women or warriors that have a sense of simultaneous strength and vulnerability. His further themes include optimism, the power of beauty and joyous cosmic bewilderment.
