WHERE: This print, more images, an exclusive artist Q&A and additional information are available on 1xRUN at 1xrun.com/runs/1313_Milwaukee

ARTIST STATEMENT: “Eventually I kind of came to this realization that I wasn’t interested into trying to recreate what it is I do outdoors. I am much more interested in the world itself that I have been submerged in for the last 23 years while painting and exploring the cities I have traveled to and lived in, not what it is I personally have been doing, but what I have been experiencing. The idea of creating work reflecting my personal graffiti “style” or something like that wasn’t interesting. I find graffiti much more engaging when it is graffiti. When you try to make it anything else I think you lose what makes it relevant and interesting in the first place.

Since I came to Detroit two years ago I’ve been making these assemblage pieces that are composed of bits and pieces of the city, it has definitely been a moment in time, and now it is nearly done. I made this body of work from here, about here, all made while I was living here and now I’m leaving, so that’s going to be finished. This will be the only print that I’m going to produce of this body of work. When it’s done, it’s done.” – REVOK

“REMAIN IN BALANCE”
A Lighting project by Steven Harrington.
Published by Case Studyo.
About The Collaboration
With his latest Case Studyo collaboration, California artist Steven Harrington takes his
exploration of balance to a whole new level. Working with wood for the first time ever,
Harrington has turned the totem-like structures of his Remain in Balance series into three
whimsical, anthropomorphic lamps. Each one represents the harmony we seek in our
daily lives, an inspired and inspiring reminder of the importance of equanimity.
Harrington’s Remain in Balance lamps are hand carved and hand painted with the utmost
care; the hand-splattered linen drum lamp shade adds a bright punch of color to the
natural, organic feel of the sculpture. Each lamp is a functional work of art that
illuminates, literally and figuratively.
Lamp Specs

Published by Case Studyo
Hand carved Beech wood, Tulip wood, Meranti wood and Pine
Lamp shade: Hand painted natural linen

The CASE STUDYO artworks are the result of a unique collaboration between the
studio and the artist. Existing artwork is not reproduced, rather each piece is a new
creation, an interaction between CASE STUDYO and the artist which creates its own
story—a case study—resulting in a unique object, released in limited editions. Our
collaborations result in fine artworks, furniture, or other functional objects that strive to
push boundaries a bit further while sharing today’s most interesting art. CASE STUDYO

Down For You” is a new body of work from Victor Reyes

Victor Reyes has dedicated more than half of his life to painting. Commitment is evident in his work and is a constant theme in the tradition of the graffiti movement. Dedications are hallmarks, written in tribute for the memory of those who came before us and for those who have departed. “Down for you” is a collection of paintings in oil and spray paint that conjure up an imaginary world of pigments and memories.

These pictures are the building blocks of a new painting language for Victor Reyes. Classical references are deconstructed in primitive strokes to complete these anti-portraits and landscapes. The meanings derived from these pieces are multifaceted. Plain objects, stretched across color fields that combat the frame work to which they are bound and tethered, reveal the excitement of destruction. The momentum and rhythm of these movements obscure earlier marks of beauty and begin to decompose the subject into forms less recognizable.
