Bio Brutalism – Nick Raynolds Art Exhibition


Ramsey Library, Blowers Gallery

August 5, 2022 @ 7:45 am - September 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

Bio Brutalism is the latest collection of drawings and paintings by local Asheville artist and UNC Asheville faculty member Nick Raynolds.

Working primarily in graphite on paper and oil on canvas, the show will feature a number of mid-sized drawings and a selection of paintings. In his continuing series of absurdist metaphysical fantasies, these recent imaginative landscapes explore abstract constructions suggesting an integration of architecture, machines and biological forms. Raynolds seeks to navigate the tension between a literalism and a metaphoric abstraction, while raising questions about Art & architecture, science fiction, psychological states and esoteric cosmologies.

Born and raised in British Columbia, Canada, Raynolds studied art in Vancouver, Halifax, NS and in Düsseldorf, Germany. He studied classical drawing and painting in New York City where he lived for 10 years before moving to Asheville. He has exhibited his work nationally and abroad and currently teaches drawing at UNC Asheville and Warren Wilson College.
