Full Melt

full-melt-final

Happy to announce a new project I’m involved in. Maitland Foley is a green-friendly contemporary art gallery with an eye towards experimentation and creating a cultural dialogue for emerging and mid career artists in the budding Los Angeles scene. Our first show is this Saturday, April 30th with Chris Cascio. Details below.

Maitland Foley is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition, Full Melt, a solo show of new work by Houston-based artist Chris Cascio.

Building off of his continuing series of Drug Maps, Cascio scales down the presence of his previous work for Full Melt, and focuses in on cannabis, and its industry. Referencing notable strains and marquee brands, Cascio plots these signatures and marks across varying neo-camouflage canvases, giving a nod to both the fashion of street culture, as well as the renegade journeymen who take the risk of growing to bring the product to market. Utilizing a palette that lends itself to the subject matter, tones of honey, orange, and brown dominate works focused on manmade extraction, while greens, browns, and purples carry the eye through nature’s bounty. Ultimately, a chronicle of the artist’s own consumption, the works in Full Melt show a sophisticated understanding of the landscape of this culture and its new environs.
