Painter Chris Rush and Photographer Steve Johnstone

This show grew out of a conversation between myself and photographer Steve Johnstone in Raging Sage. Steve is a photographer working in the modernist tradition, documenting the artful decay of city walls. I am a painter who utilizes traditional methods in creating unusual portraits and still lives.

In talking, we realized we shared many of the same interests.

Our Febuary show at the Wee Gallery will be a sort of modernist lab, an experiment in light and the emotional immediacy of color. A discussion of time and disrepair.

Rush currently lives and works in Tucson, Arizona and Ashland, Oregon.
