A Columbus original, the 7th annual Pinchflat poster show showcases Ohio artists at their best. Pinchflat supports arts and cycling communities, bringing energy and excitement year after year. For 2017 we are featuring posters from all over the fair (and bikable) state of Ohio. Pinchflat kicks off on May 6th with a family friendly event at Wild Goose Creative from noon to 5pm, with food trucks, coffee, ice cream, live music, and more.
About our featured artist:
In addition to 30 posters by 30 artists, we’ll also have an entire wall dedicated to Pinchflat alum, multidisciplinary artist and designer, Kyle Knapp. Kyle is a lifelong artist who has studied at The Ohio State University. His show “Psychic Garden” is a collection of abstract and surreal landscapes. Plants appear as explosions of shapes frozen in time. Grass, leaves, flowers, and pollen form a kaleidoscopic swirl on the surface of these paintings blending the figurative with the abstract. When people appear in these paintings they are often engulfed in nature, both lost in thought and wilderness. Dynamic compositions build a sense of movement and energy. The work is at once surreal and psychedelic, but with a bold, graphic execution.
WHITE BLOOM BLOOM
Flagging tape, chicken wire, light
The Wild Goose Creative Board of Directors purchased White Bloom Bloom in May of 2015 during the #wildartcolumbus Live Auction.
Designed and installed by Dana Lynn Harper.
Dana Lynn Harper is currently based in Columbus, OH. Her practice ranges from large installations to small paintings and sculptures. Harper is inspired by natural formations, from large landscapes to infinitesimal plankton and pollen. Using overpowering color, inviting textures and an overall multi-sensory experience, the works act as a portal to warm feelings and childhood fantasy, a social catalyst for interaction and connection. Playful patterns, dancing tinsel and unapologetic fluorescent colors are not only a testament to the beauty of life, but to the ever-encompassing joy of living. In 2014, Harper was the recipient of The ArtFile Emerging Artist Grant as well as an ArtPrize Artist Seed Grant. Last year at The Ohio State Fair’s Fine Art Exhibition, she received Best in Show as well as The People’s Choice Award. She has been an artist and residence at BUNKERprojects in Pittsburgh, PA as well as Second Sight Studio in Columbus, OH.
