Brian Chippendale Opens His First Solo Exhibition at Cinders Gallery
Cap N Crunch, Aleve pills, and the Legend of Zelda are equally as inspiring as wars, real estate developers, oil spills, and disasters.
BROOKLYN, NY.- “What lies behind the Black Hole, does Disney truly know? When the chips are finished and the human brain is no less the floppy disk of yesterday, who’s to say what it will take to survive. All I can do is copy down the instructions I am given, sharpen them into a knife and stab the asshole barking orders.” -Brian Chippendale

And stab and stab and stab. The sweat from stabbing has pooled into an overflowing rainbow-hued river that we are happy to present to you as Fruiting Bodies, the new solo exhibition by Brian Chippendale. Layers upon layers of silk-screened prints and drawings on paper form dense magical landscapes where moments from another world are frozen in time. The energy of this fantastical otherworld is infectious. You just want to go there and hang out with these characters and frolic in fields of mushrooms and butterflies, eat some strange plants, barter for peanut butter and maybe fight some cat-headed warriors.

A familiar breadcrumb trail of humankind’s existence is present in the form of guns, gas guzzling vehicles, and garbage. Cap N Crunch, Aleve pills, and the Legend of Zelda are equally as inspiring as wars, real estate developers, oil spills, and disasters. There are utopic moments of stillness amidst the visual chaos.

While loose narratives are formed in some pieces, others simply offer an exciting sense of play with abstract forms, textures and colors. Brian’s hyper busy mark-making achieves a similar barrage of rhythms akin to his drum playing in the band Lightning Bolt, obsessively filling up all available space until the viewer/listener is in a state of blissful frenzy.

Brian Chippendale comes to us from Providence, RI, where he has resided for the past 13 years. As a co-founder of now legendary art warehouse Fort Thunder, Brian has been an important part of the underground music and art scene that sprouted out of the Fort and other similar collective-living spaces. In addition to art and music, Brian is known internationally for his innovative comics and has just finished a new 800 page comic called “If N’ Oof,” to be published by Picturebox this Fall.

Brian has also shown his visual art at the Macro Future Museum in Rome, the Deste Foundation in Athens and the RISD Museum as part of Wunderground: Providence 1995 to the Present. This is his first solo exhibition at Cinders.
