Buddy Bunting - Valley Fever
July 3 - August 30, 2014
First Thursday, July 3, 6-8pm
Prole Drift is please to present Valley Fever by Seattle artist Buddy Bunting. For this show Bunting created a gigantic, carefully rendered oil painting of the Juvenile Detention Facility in Antelope Valley, California. This piece and the other works in the show are a continuation of his ongoing body of work about the prison industrial complex, often featuring panoramic views of buildings in vast and remote settings.
"I am fascinated by the western landscape, its mythology of transcendence, openness, and expansion. In researching certain sites of interest, there are diversions, many drawings, and wrong turns. I am compelled to make paintings of these places, paintings that resonate in the mind and require some time to reveal their effect."
the gallery will be closed July 4th and 5th
