Hothouse & Flower Beds Opening



This upcoming exhibition is a collection of drawings and collage which capture the outgrowth of the transcendental in a world of banalities. Stills from cartoons and commercials burst forth with bouquets of fresh cut flowers. Parking tickets and porn provide the rich compost for new growth. Featuring O’Phelan’s unique linework, this show revels in human mark making in an era of computer rendering. In eager anticipation for spring, Hothouse Flowers opens February 12, 2009.

Ian O'Phelan (b. 1982, a Pisces) hails from Toledo, OH. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati, where he pursued a Frankenstein curriculum of fine art and graphic design classes. O'Phelan's work mines the past for stories and imagery that find resonance in the culture and news of the present day. Connecting this sometimes divergent exploration is a consuming love of drawing, manifest in his meticulous use of line.
