Spoke Art Gallery is pleased to present Unreal Estate, the debut solo show by Austin-based serigraph artist Tim Doyle. In “Unreal Estate,” Doyle explores locations found throughout popular culture in a variety of limited-edition hand-printed screen prints and original art. Opening night is this Thursday February 2nd, 2012 6pm – 10pm. And the show is on view through Thursday February 23, 2012.
From Moe’s Tavern to the Bluth Banana Stand, Doyle’s realistic and illustrative reinterpretations of television’s most iconic places is a captivating voyage. In the artists words, “Unreal Estate’ is a collection of locations that many of us know and have been to on a weekly basis at times, but can never actually visit. These places are in our memories transmitted and entrenched there through a cathode-ray tube. Some of us have been going to these places for decades, some of these places were taken from us, way too soon.”
For these pieces Doyle moved away from his usually big bold colors and comic-book line quality to create a more illustrative style, with muted tones and colors that reflect a mood or time of day. He attempts to preserve and honor the non-physical spaces found in this show with the same care and intention given to iconic real world locations. This series is one artist’s intensely personal journey through a world which is universal to us all. Join the artist as pop culture tour guide this February 2nd.
As an added bonus, the artist will be in attendance for the opening and we are happy to announce that the first 100 guests will receive a complimentary limited edition screen print.
