STUTZARTSPACE presents "Bodies of Work"
The August show at StutzArtSpace will feature figurative paintings by Travis S. Little. Opening August 5, the solo show will include sketches, illustrations and paintings from Little's body of work.
Little is a primarily self-taught painter in the style of Contemporary American Realism. Born in Indianapolis, he earned a degree from The School of Advertising Art (SAA) in Kettering, Ohio in the study of graphic design, computer imaging and graphics and illustration. He worked as a graphic designer and freelance marketing consultant until 2001, when he began focusing on fine art, illustration and photography. Visit www.travislittle.com for more details.
Little started "Hommage Studios" (pronounced "o-MAJ") to manage and market his fine art, illustration, photography and interactive media work. The primary mission of Hommage Studios is to support other artists by mentoring young artists, models and photographers, offering financial academic aid and supply donations, hosting networking events and workshops, and sharing facilities and other resources among creative hobbyists and professionals alike.
"I strive for a level of realism that is consistent with life, over any heavy reliance on stylization or abstraction," said Little. "My techniques can be unorthodox and without the constraint of traditional formulaic process — a rare benefit from being mostly self-taught."
An opening reception for the show is set for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. August 5, in conjunction with the Indianapolis Downtown Artists & Dealers Association's (IDADA) monthly First Friday gallery tour. The show continues through Aug. 26, and the gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays or by appointment.
