Skin and Bones, The Ian Reynold Collection// Live Music by Mothers, Space Cubs and Mr. Boneless// Friday Jan 11th, 7-11pm


Samantha Laying

Join Paperish Mess on Friday, January 11th from 7-11pm for the opening night of our second feature art exhibit Skin and Bones, by Chicago-based oil painter, Ian Reynold.

Live Music by Buffalo, NY-based Mothers, electronic/experimental musician Space Cubs, and Mr. Boneless.

Working with oil on linen, Reynold creates emotive paintings with a heavy sense of realism. He is drawn to painting people, not posing but unknowingly captured in their own environments and in their own thoughts. He is enamored with the subtleties which reveal not just the likeness but the essence of the subject.

Ian is able to masterfully paint skin and capture the translucence where the veins and arteries below influence coloration on the surface above. The paintings and the people in them seem to be alive, so come and meet them.

We’ll have drinks and snacks to enjoy as well!
