Matthew Bourbon: Our Splendid Defeat + Kevin Bell
June 5 - July 3, 2010
1836 Richmond Avenue, Houston, TX 77098
Rudolph Blume Fine Art / ArtScan Gallery unveils a new exhibition of paintings by Denton’s Matthew Bourbon. In his exhibition Our Splendid Defeat, Bourbon creates a fractured narrative world within his paintings where humans are "existentially detached from one another." The masked figures within this world are defined by abstracted shapes and lines and are trapped within bourgeois, domestic settings.
