On Display: Ruben Ireland’s ‘Out of Body’ at Gauntlet Gallery

 

 

A canvas on a wall is a specific experience. It is akin to reading a book, watching a film — staring at the sky. But it’s none of those things.

A gallery of work can give you that sense of fulfillment, that same exhilaration and thrill as any great work of art can. It’s both communal and private —  the gallery as theater. The artist there, their work on the walls, hoping that it says something to the viewer the same way it does them.

The work of UK based artist Ruben Ireland is currently on display at Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco, and his curated show ‘Out of Body‘ is as satisfying an experience as reading a wonderful book or watching an amazing film.

Ireland showed off new works as well as two collaborations and new works from some of his favorite artists like Jenny Liz Rome, Helen Vine, Muxxi, Ross Paul McEwan, Peony Yip, and Diego Fernandez.

Ireland’s grouping of artists work well alongside his own. There’s a subtle connection to the pieces — nothing vocalized or flatly laid upon the exhibit, but the work in ‘Out of Body’ has an inherent beauty that is both sophisticated and immediate.

Out of Body‘ is on display at Gauntlet Gallery through April 26th with a selection of work from the exhibit available as limited edition prints.

Visit Gauntlet Gallery’s online store for the full list of selected works.
