Conduit Gallery presents Angel Oloshove: "On Some Faraway Beach" opening reception
Conduit Gallery will present the first solo exhibition by Houston-based ceramic artist, Angel Oloshove, titled, “On Some Faraway Beach.”
Upon moving to Houston in 2012, Oloshove simultaneously encountered the large colorfully gradient Texas skies and the academic holdings of Surrealist objects in the Menil Collection’s “Witness” exhibition. In particular, the bifurcated coconuts indigenous to just one island in the Maldives, the Coco De Mer. Both would reinforce existing interest in Oloshove’s work and become a driver for future works as well. The chromatic variations of Texas sky at dusk and dawn mirror Oloshove’s airbrushed gradients and the robust seeds of the Coco De Mer resembled Oloshove’s past work both of which have been described as Anthropomorphic in the form of Coco De Mer acquiring not only mythic status but a legacy of its resemblance to a woman’s hips and buttocks.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 30.
