Hanging Now through March 31, 2017:

Rich Gouinlock

Rich Gouinlock is an artist currently residing in Urbana, IL.  Most of his work consists of oil and printed paper on canvas.  He employs a collage process in which the printed media on the paper is obscurred and repurposed.  This is achieved by cutting, tearing anRich_Gouinlock_picd applying the materials onto the canvas with oil colors and mediums.   The results are textural compositions and abstract landscapes.  The thematic thread which runs through much of the work suggests the inescapable ubiquity of print media and how its over-saturation in the artist’s world calls into question its overall meaningfulness.  Thus, Rich hopes to create something beautiful out of the superfluous.

Gallery hours are 10:30AM to 5:30PM Monday through Friday; other times by chance.
