“Geodasia” By Colin Prahl
Opening June 1st, 2019
The hypnotic brain paintings of Colin Prahl will be on full display for Northern California viewers throughout the month of June. Prahl’s 16 works entitled “Geodaesia,” draw on the celestial and psychedelic while applying draftsman-like precision.
A native upstate New Yorker, Prahl attended RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) earning a B.A. in Illustration in 2012 before moving to New York City where he worked as a studio assistant to several prominent artists. His aesthetic has been shaped largely by his studies of perception, a lengthy exploration of neuroscience guiding his process.
The “Geodaesia” body of work attempts to capture a sense of deep space, the suggestion of other dimensions, and the intangible vibrations of the mind. Prahl works in acrylic airbrush and the result is shimmering expanses of color and texture that imply movement, auric, geometric canvases that appear to pulse right off the wall.
This is Prahl’s first solo show on the West Coast after growing interest in his contributions to a group show last year in Arizona. Owner Brian Chambers says, “It’s really exciting for us to bring Colin’s work to California, his paintings attracted so much attention in 2018. I think people are really going to be blown away when they see this show altogether. The effect is indescribable.”
