Visions West Contemporary Bozeman is pleased to announce our newest exhibition, “Embodied.” Visions West Contemporary will be showing the work of multiple artists in this figurative-based exhibition. The show will open to the public on May 7, 2021 and continue through June 5, 2021 at 34 W Main St, Bozeman, MT 59715. Embodied Participating artists include: June Glasson, Aaron Zulpo, Rocky Hawkins, Jennifer Nehrbass, Billy Schenck, Rocky Hawkins, Patty Carroll, and Reine Paradis. What does it mean to be human, specifically in the West? How do we relate to the vast, wild landscapes filled with adventure, danger, history, and beauty? What stereotypes and characters do we embrace or disregard? Embodied is Visions West Contemporary’s exploration of figures in relation to nature. For some artists, like June Glasson, history serves as inspiration for contemporary themes. Her gender-bending portraits of women and drag performers drawn on the “mountain man” stereotype of earlier settlers and pioneers. Similarly, in a lively new painting called “Untouchable”, Aaron Zulpo features a gun-slinging, root tootin’ lady who clearly has the upper hand of a shotgun wielding outlaw. Others, like Patty Carroll and Reine Paradis' photographs are more surreal in nature, featuring dramatic and humorous stereotypes of a trophy wife and a cowgirl (Carroll) or figures placed within modern and hyper-saturated environments (Paradis). Jennifer Nehrbass’s sleek and modern geometric portraits of women contrasts Billy Schenck’s flat, pop-art inspired portraits of rugged cowboys and sexy cowgirls. Stop in to see clay figures, historically inspired paintings, powerful female portraits, cowboys and cowgirls, and more!
