Russell Etchen - About Six Thousand Five Hundred Rocks, About One Thousand Five Hundred People, and Some Clover
 

July 8 - Aug 22, 2021

Russell Etchen’s drawings, painting installations, and books originate in ’Zine culture, cartooning, graffito, rock and roll aesthetics, and his philosophical meditations on similarity, difference, repetition and      reproduction. The repeated elements of counting, grouping, and sorting objects—whether they are Rocks or People—lend an oddly elegant and subtly humorous charm that belies the miasma commonly associated with monotony and repetition. Based in Los Angeles, Etchen was raised in Houston. This exhibition’s multi-scale mix of wall paintings and drawings marks the artist’s first Houston show since his widely reproduced and much loved public art installation at the Lawndale Art Center in 2016.
