“150 Minutes” is a show of recent works by Anthill Collective artist Scottie Raymond a.k.a. eSKae1. It was initially inspired by his recent success in the Magic Hat Wall to Canvas competition, a live art competition where each artist is given 2.5 hours (150 minutes) to complete a piece of art. Building off of this concept, eSKae1 created a series of 150 minute “Instantly Produced Art.” The pieces are inspired and informed by the visual and literary artists of the Beat generation. Raymond uses mixed media, but primarily spraycans, to build and position juxtaposed layers, ultimately culminating in an individual character. The “portraits” are more interpretations, caricatures of icons of a generation when excess and experimentation were sexy.
The Magic Hat ArtSpace was introduced in 2012 on the Artifactory tour ramp and showcases local artists and their work. Selected artists will typically be featured for two month. When a new artist is chosen, we will hold a reception on the first Friday of that month to coincide with Art Map Burlington’s First Friday Art Walk. All of the artwork displayed in this space can be purchased directly from the artists.
If you are interested in showing your work at the ArtSpace email Dani.Gleason@MagicHat.Net.
