FURTHERMORE PRESENTS // CANDID
Please join us for the opening of CANDID, featuring the work of Ryan Burghard, Mario Gallucci, and Kelly Elizabeth Tivnan, Friday, March 1st, 6-9pm at the Bison Building!
Candid is a study and reflection of space and sensation. The collaborative work between Ryan Burghard, Mario Gallucci and Kelly Elizabeth Tivnan, considers the history, creative patina and daily wear that comes from the artists and students working within an expansive and unique space. Burghard, Gallucci, and Tivnan have spent the last month working intimately with and reflecting on the scope and scale of the Furthermore gallery. Using light, sound and subtle gestures, they redirect attention, affecting the frequency of the building, shifting the atmosphere.
Ryan Burghard is a Portland-based artist who’s slight and seemingly invisible gestures question the nature of our relationships; both universal and personal, to time and to notions we have of permanence and impermanence. He studied at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is currently an Assistant Professor at the Oregon College of Art and Craft.
He has had solo exhibitions at Portland Pataphysical Society (Portland, OR), Cydonia (Dallas, TX) and IGLOO, (Portland, OR) and his work was included in numerous group exhibitions including the Helzer Gallery at PCC Rock Creek, (Portland,OR), Border Patrol, (Portland, ME), Patton-Malott Gallery (Snowmass, CO), FivePoints ArtHouse, (San Francisco, CA) and Disjecta Contemporary Art Center (Portland, OR).
Mario Gallucci is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Portland Oregon. He received his MFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Visual Studies in 2014. He holds a BA from Elon University in acting and digital media. He has shown internationally, and nationally and his most recent shows in Portland were Counterfeit Universe at One Grand Gallery and Threshold at Hap Gallery. As the son of a sculptor and a biologist, he is continually inspired to either reveal the unnoticed, or conceal the overt structures that support the workings of our daily lives.
Kelly Elizabeth Tivnan is an international interior designer + visual artist, who has returned to the PNW (where she was born and raised) after calling Berlin, Germany home base for over the last decade. When Kelly is not consulting clients on their work or living spaces, developing concepts for projects or making her own work, she is found best following her heart, wandering about with her camera, as she is also a prolific photographer. Kelly is known by her colleagues and friends alike for her dedication to each creative pursuit that comes her way. She is articulate and innovative. She stays loyal to her processes, visions and collaborators.
