Form Lore Exhibit

Form Lore Exhibit

Presented by Beatnik Studios at Beatnik Studios

This fall, Beatnik Studios features work by Bryan Valenzuela, Brian Shea, and Rora Blue in an exhibition entitled Form-Lore.

Northern California artist Bryan Valenzuela lives and works in Sacramento. For over a decade he’s been aiming to perfect a unique drawing technique involving the atomization of the figure by carving out shape and light with handwritten text. Though virtually unnoticeable from afar, once the viewer steps closer to each work they are engulfed in a barrage of words intermingled with other mixed media elements such as needle and thread, acrylic paint, and collage.

Rora Blue is a young artist who also lives and works in Northern California. She focuses on producing conceptual and interactive art. Blue’s work is defined by her use of striking colors and ability to involve the public in her artistic process. She has produced two viral art series and has become known internationally for her ability to merge the worlds of art and social media.

Amador County artist Brian Shea creates stunning origami sculptures in vinyl that are meant to be touched as well as seen. Working in a non-objective, free-form fashion, each piece is original to the moment in which it arrives. Shea’s work elicits participation from viewers inciting them to create their own lore from its form.
