Island of the Colorblind
Shooting Gallery is pleased to present Island of the Colorblind, a brand-new collection of handmade wooden kinetic sculptures by California artist Paul Chatem. The show will be Paul’s first solo project at Shooting Gallery, with an opening reception on Saturday, April 9, 2011 from 7-11 pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through May 7.
In Chatem’s Island of the Colorblind, tone-deaf musicians entertain colorblind painters, tongue-less chefs feed stomach-less eaters, side-steppers lead forward thinkers, and empty bottles satisfy thirst-less drinkers. Isolated by a tumultuous environment, this cast of characters is united by a common interest to survive and thrive despite their differences. He has constructed an entire world of contradiction and wonder, using wood and paint.
