Adam Cave Fine Art in Raleigh, NC, Features Works by Byron Gin and Tisha Weddington

Adam Cave Fine Art in Raleigh, NC, will present the exhibit, Birds, From Real to Surreal, featuring works by Byron Gin and Tisha Weddington, on view from Nov. 3 - 30, 2011.

Adam Cave Fine Art transforms itself into a virtual aviary with an exhibit of new works by Byron Gin and Tisha Weddington. Although from very different backgrounds, both artists have become fascinated with bird imagery in recent years. The 16 works on view showcase this imagery along with other subjects, captured in two very different artistic styles. While Gin combines painterly realism with pure abstraction, Weddington creates works of pure surreal fantasy.

Gin calls Chicago, IL, home although he grew up in Southern California where he studied art at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. Birds and various random tools and toys populate his canvases but they are often small focal points in otherwise large fields of abstract color. The paintings have a brightness of color and strong sense of design that make them an absolute joy to look at. The birds themselves are all based on Byron’s own photographs, taken while birdwatching around the country.

Weddington is a well-known North Carolina artist and a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Interests in Japanese art, Native American mythology, old carnivals, tent shows, and the circus all feature strongly in her work. Weddington paints intuitively, with little planning, often combining strangely glamorous women with anthropomorphic animals and birds. Figures often have too many arms or legs giving the sense that we are seeing multiple moments in time simultaneously.
