Nuts and Bits Art Show Minneapolis Shawn McNulty Daniel Buettner

Nuts and Bits Art Show Minneapolis Shawn McNulty Daniel Buettner

ROSALUX GALLERY presents “NUTS AND BITS”:
New paintings by Shawn McNulty and Daniel Buettner

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 7th, 7:00-10:00 PM

Painters Shawn McNulty and Daniel Buettner build up their work with many parts and layers similar to how a machine or engine is put together with various nuts and bolts, or in this case, nuts and bits. McNulty applies thick acrylic and texture mediums with unconventional tools and motions, which results in engaging compositions with unique forms that beg to be deciphered. Buettner presents random traditional imagery in an abstract environment, which engages the viewer to interpret the scenario. Both artists are longtime Rosalux members and incorporate a vibrant color palette. 

Shawn McNulty, a founding member of Rosalux Gallery since 2002, works his square canvas on the floor using acrylic and pumice with large industrial palette knives.  He also uses his feet with a “shoe palette knife” in an attempt to discover new forms by modifying his control. His work explores the idea of recognizable shapes and structures living within irrational thoughts and emotions.  The process starts out very spontaneously and becomes more detailed as the composition starts to show itself.  The color fields interchange with each other, attempting to find common ground resulting in multifaceted and interesting edges. The process continues until a solution is found, always applying and mixing paint directly on the canvas, scraping away layers to reveal the ghostly characters of the previous. http://shawnmcnulty.com

Artist Daniel Buettner’s paintings show objects placed in contexts different from which they were originally intended to be in. The objects, often simple and otherwise not worthy of much thought, are painted in the finest of detail against photos of unlikely environments collaged into the backgrounds. The “new” setting invites the viewer to construct meaning the same way a child might when presented with a situation that, from the adult perspective is either obvious, or rhetorical, or both. http://www.danielbuettnerart.com/
