Thalia Rodgers and Ian Tredway: Animate Being

  • Tugboat Gallery 116 North 14th Street Lincoln, NE, 68508 United States (map)
 Ian Tredway

Ian Tredway

"Animate Being" confidently depicts familiar spaces and materials using bold saturated colors and common materials such as bubble wrap in a raw and unexpected way. Both artists use painting, drawing and sequential formatting to express sincere feelings of past and future realities.
Thalia Rodgers' work is a loose depiction of what she wishes her reality would be. She uses repetitive imagery and bold colors to get this across in her paintings, drawings and videos/animations.

Ian Tredway's work explores new aspects of home, commodity, and sincerity by using materials such as bubble wrap, caulking, and plastic bags to display these complexities. In contrast, by limiting his previous materials and using them alongside new materials found from his childhood such as glitter, fabric glue, cardboard, and saturated colors, he attempts to add a layer of nostalgia, sincerity, and healing over his work.
