SCOTT MURRY, ELLEN CRENSHAW, AMANDA ATKINS

AUGUST 28 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 18, 2009

Dirty Duality/Gramps & Scamps/The Foxtrot Code

8-09_web.jpg

SPACE 242 , Boston’s lowbrow destination, proudly announces its August 2009 exhibitions: DIRTY DUALITY featuring new work by Scott Murry; GRAMPS & SCAMPS, featuring new work by Ellen Crenshaw; and THE FOXTROT CODE, featuring new work by Amanda Atkins. The exhibition, on view August 28 through September 18, features a variety of new work by these three illustration artists. The opening reception, Friday, August 28, runs from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in Boston’s South End, 242 E. Berkeley Street, 2nd floor (between Albany Street and Harrison Avenue). The artists will also host an artist talk Tuesday, September 15, from 7:00 to 8:00p.m. RSVP required for attendance at either event at ww.space242.com. Regular gallery hours are Friday evenings, 6:30-8pm, and by appointment. No RSVP is necessary for visiting during regular gallery hours.

Scott Murry
Murry works in a variety of mediums (pencil, Micron pen, watercolor, colored pencil), but prefers acrylic paints. He most favors “wood stumps and panel surfaces, due to their smooth surface, but rich, textural grains.” His work is largely character based, presented in a humorous manner, depicting apathetic expressions. This exhibition, Dirty Duality, according to Murry “focuses on the duality of characters. There is a public persona that everyone chooses to present, but there is also another side. There are habits, guilty pleasures, and secrets that aren’t always openly shared.” This body of work will show both sides of characters. Murry cites influences including Jeff Soto, Shag, Michael Sieben, Picasso, Egon Schiele, punk rock, smut, and Sesame Street. He has shown in the Boston area, as well as in Los Angeles and Cincinnati. He studied at both the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and the Art Institute of Boston, earning his B.F.A. in Illustration. Originally from Ohio, Murry, a designer and illustrator for The Weekly Dig and Beer Advocate, lives in Boston with his fiancé and cat, Waffles.

Ellen Crenshaw
Her first solo exhibition, Gramps & Scamps is a survey of Crenshaw’s illustration work. According to the artist “It’s a showcase of quirky characters in silly, sometimes awkward situations.” Inspired by imperfect people, she tries to “infuse a bit of gracelessness in my characters—like the nose is too big, or the haircut is geeky, or the proportions are off.” Most of her illustration is fairly innocent, although according to her “I do have a healthy fascination with sex and violence, which at times shows in my work.” Crenshaw works primarily in brush-and-ink and watercolor on hot press watercolor paper. “I like the finality of watercolor,” she notes, “if you put a color down, you can’t take it back. It allows for thoughtful, deliberate painting, with some happy (or not-so-happy) accidents. It also panders to my impatience, as it is so quick-drying.” Crenshaw cites influences including comedy, history, fashion, animals, PBS, Peter de Seve, Chuck Jones, Craig Thompson, Dupuy and Berberian, Graham Annable, Jen Wang, and Tom Barrett. She has exhibited in Massachusetts and Florida, and her artwork has been published in The White Eagle, The Weekly Dig, The Sketch Report, and upcoming issues of Inbound #4. She studied visual arts at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, and earned her B.F.A. in illustration at The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University (Suma Cum Laude), where she helped teach Conceptual Development. Originally from North Palm Beach, Florida, Ms. Crenshaw resides in East Boston.

Amanda Laurel Atkins
In The Foxtrot Code, most of Atkins’ paintings depict curious women in elaborately filled, wallpapered, and decorated rooms, often with an animal companion. According to the artist, “I want viewers to wonder what lies beyond the borders of the painting, what the characters are thinking and doing, and to vicariously feel the joy of the characters’ surroundings.” Primarily, she paints with acrylic on masonite, which according to Atkins “it creates a something-you-can-hold-in-your-hands feeling.” Atkins sites influences including Michael Sowa, John Currin, and Ray Caesar. A great lover of books, and also a writer, she also finds inspiration in trees, notebooks, dresses, real and plastic animals, opera stage sets and clipper ships. Additionally, when not painting, she works in sculpture as well as illustration. She has exhibited her work regionally, including the Teeny Tiny Art Show in Portsmouth, NH, and last year, was a featured artist at Glovebox’s One Art Show, benefiting One Home Many Hopes. Her artwork has been featured as album art for the musical group Jerry Fish and The Mud Club. Ms. Atkins earned her B.F.A. from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University.
