Opening This Month:

Daisy Patton: A Rewilded Arcadia

K Contemporary

October 6 - 27, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Saturday, October 6, 6-9 pm
  • In the Project Space: Kristin Stransky: FAUXreal
Patton - Untitled (Cottonwood Pollen by the Lake) - 60x60

This October at K Contemporary, long-buried fragments of the past will be given new life, renewed purpose, and fresh relevance as celebrated Colorado artist, Daisy Patton, unites Then and Now within the re-imagined gardens of A Rewilded Arcadia.

Beneath a lush botanical canopy, the upcoming exhibition is deeply rooted in humanity’s often complicated relationship with Nature. For much of Western history, humanity has positioned itself in opposition to nature. The landscape is to be rigidly tamed, manicured into precise gardens and parks, cultivated and devoid of uncertainty.

“A Rewilded Arcadia is about harmony with the natural world, as well as a lyrical way to think about wilderness,” explains Patton. “My figures are intertwined in patterns connecting to the surrounding scenery, and I see those patterns as elements of re-wilding, or returning to nature.”

In experiencing this body of work, which is part Patton’s “Forgetting is so long” series, the spectators will find a garden’s flowers gently, but overwhelmingly, wrap around its keepers. Floral patterns encircle figures in a loving embrace—a reminder that we are connected and immersed in the larger cycles of life and death.

Those familiar with Patton’s acclaimed work, will immediately recognize in Arcadia the fluent dialogue between lens and brush. She begins each conversation with a photograph, an anonymous and anchorless image and writes upon it a narrative expressed in bold colors, dynamic shapes and stylized floral patterns. Giving both past and present their voice, Patton’s re-awakened histories tell stories unbounded by time.

Daisy Patton currently has a solo exhibition on view at the Art Museum of the University of Colorado Boulder, This is Not Goodbye, showing through November, 2018. She has received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Boston/Tufts University, and her Bachelor of Fine Art in Studio Arts, with minors in History and Art History from the University of Oklahoma. Patton received the prestigious Montague Travel Grant for research in Dresden, Germany, and has completed distinguished residencies at Anderson Ranch, the Studios at MASS MoCA, the Minerva Projects and RedLine Denver.

Reality Bytes


September 14 - October 28, 2018

  • Curated by Ivar Zeile/Denver Digerati
  • Presented in Conjunction with Supernova Digital Animation Festival
Much of what we see, hear about, or experience in the world today often seems unimaginable. The steady flow of video games, virtual reality, consumer apps, computer programs and social media outlets derived from the “digital age” promote an existence that is becoming more “dreamlike” every day, often invoking complete wonderment. Reality Bytes aims to capture the zeitgeist brewing through the use of digital tools in the hands of contemporary artists. Presented by Denver Digerati, the works in the exhibition utilize their expansive laboratory operating within Denver’s public landscape over the last seven years. Reality Bytes, shown in conjunction with Supernova Digital Animation Festival, delivers a fascinating snapshot into a rapidly advancing world through some of the most imaginative artists in the field, celebrating digital animation as a wide, immersive realm unfettered by boundaries- changing how we experience art and the physical world.

Artists: Chiho Aoshima, John Butler, Emily Brout/Maxime Marion, Chris Coleman, Jeremy Couillard, Milton Croissant III, Sandrine Deumier, Elliot Dodd, Atomic Elroy, David Fodel, Jeff Jurich, Faiyaz Jafri, Bryan Leister, Michael Mallis, Keiichi Matsuda, Alex McLeod, Laleh Mehran, Brenna Murphy, Jonathan Monaghan, PNSY Studio, Mike Pelletier, Zach Tatham, Katie Torn, Jack Wedge, Barry Whittaker, Mario Zoots

Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program: Westwood Park Public Art Project

Application Deadline: Monday, October 8, 2018 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time Zone

The Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program, now in its 30th year, seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create an original work of art for Westwood Park. The park is located at 4951 W. Kentucky Ave in Denver’s Westwood neighborhood. The Westwood Park art selection panel has recommended a site-specific, unique work of art to be designed, fabricated and installed for the park. A requirement of this project is engaging the community in the creative process through hands-on workshops for youth and residents. The goal of the artwork is to celebrate the community of Westwood and help instill a sense of pride and ownership in the park through the creation of a timeless and permanent art installation of high artistic merit and quality.
Artist(s) should consider how the artwork will: enhance neighborhood culture; celebrate public space and promote unity and diversity. The specific locations for proposed artworks are to be determined once a short list of semifinalists are selected. This commission is open to artists or artist teams residing in the state of Colorado. The budget is approximately $55,000 USD, with a generous portion of the budget granted by The Trust for Public Land. All community engagement meetings and workshops will be held in the Westwood neighborhood.

  • Opening Reception: Friday, October 5th, 6-9pm
3AutumnParkAgrich36x36Lyudmila Agrich, Autumn Park, Oil on Canvas, 36” x 36”

A childhood spent in the beautiful seaside city of Odessa, Ukraine, has had a lifelong influence on artist Lyudmila Agrich. Now a Denver resident, Lyudmila’s lush and luminous canvases created entirely with a palette knife, have become her trademark, capturing the very light that entranced her as a child. Her newest work, to be unveiled at Mirada Fine Art on October 5th, once again reveals the mastery of her craft. Entitled “Impressionable: A Visual Journey,” the collection of paintings allows us to join Agrich along this wondrous artistic path.
