Troy Lovegates aka Other – “Hinterland” @ Athen B. Gallery

Athen B. Gallery is excited to announce “Hinterland”, a solo exhibition by Troy Lovegates in Downtown Oakland. The opening reception is Saturday, November 11th at 7pm conveniently located from both 12th and 19th St. Bart Stations in Downtown Oakland. More info and images after the click.

Troy Lovegates, widely known as “OTHER”, is an artist currently based in Oakland, CA. His works are heavily patterned and saturated with hyper color. With a knack for the use of found materials and the unification of wildly disparate elements, both material and aesthetic, Lovegates uses everything from spray paint, oil stick, water color, acrylic, and ink to create works on canvas and paper as well as wooden sculptures.

A self-described “collector of lost souls,” the artist focuses on the figure as story, building motifs through heavily condensed mark making. The figures in his work are sympathetically drawn from equal parts caricature and realistic observation. Lovegates is constantly revising and adapting previous efforts, reintegrating them into current bodies of work that reflect the history of their making. His hand-carved wooden pieces bring his paintings to life as objects. The powerfully weathered people in his imagery are often real, captured through photographs and observation taken while on his travels over the years. Motivated by his own dreams and nightmares, Troy Lovegates works are emotive arrests of an awe-inspiring imagination.

Artist statement:

“Death and Nautilus” portrays a species facing destruction at the hands of humans. I chose to portray the Nautilus because it is symbolic of the timelessness of the ocean environment, which has nurtured the Nautilus over the great expanse of time since prehistory. Their ancestors, which look very much like their modern descendants, navigated the oceans of 500 million years ago. But now, humanity is threatening the health of the oceans with overfishing, pollution, and climate change. This threat is symbolized by the human skeleton of Death, in the painting. The skeleton holds the fate of the Nautilus in his hands. We must take action to protect the ocean, and use its resources in a sustainable way, and prevent the loss of the Nautilus and all the other beautiful and fascinating creatures of the seas.” – Sandra Yagi
