MAC-160 (Acrylic, Charcoal)

MAC-160 (Acrylic, Charcoal) image

Asleep on the Love Seat by artist Chris Vance. 2014 Catherine Haynes Memorial Quasi-Endowed Fund Purchase Award. Vance is a Bondurant [IA] artist who has created personal iconography. The art is rooted in a blend of cartoons, music, graffiti, and skateboard culture. “Seeds of Fruit” blog interview: “I have four kids, and I’ve been influenced by skateboards since I was a kid, plus graffiti, cartoons, and the whole Ren and Stimpy type culture. I guess that cartoon characters aren’t Tom and Jerry, but they’re a little darker than that. And I’ve been inspired by how my kids draw things — sketchy, but an interesting line quality happens when they’re unaware of making it perfect. All those things intrigue me, crammed into my head and spit back out!” Chris Vance graduated from Iowa State University in 2000 with a BFA. He was influenced by the work of Richard Diebenkorn (American, 1922-93) and the abstract expressionists (Mid-20th century American art movement).
