“REFLECTIONS” TURNS 1801 CALIFORNIA INSIDE OUT
Site-specific installation by Chris Dahlquist runs Sept. 19 through Nov. 9 as part of Denver Arts Week
DENVER, CO, July 26, 2017 The artist says it best: “Reflections is a site-specific installation that grabs the sky and mimics the undulating reflections found in the exterior windows of a skyscraper, effectively turning the building inside-out.” Comprised of nine collections of multiple faceted photographs, Reflections by Chris Dahlquist opens Sept. 19 at 1801 California in downtown Denver and runs through Nov. 9.
“We welcome the community to a free artist reception on Sept. 19 and encourage the support of the arts in the Mile High City through Denver Arts Week. Having these colossal pieces grace the walls at 1801 California during Denver Arts Week will draw even more attention to Denver’s thriving art scene,” says Elysa Marden, Vice President, Arts Brookfield.
Dahlquist created large vertical pieces comprised of hundreds of photographic prints of a brilliant blue sky with white cotton candy clouds that will flank the entry to the elevator lobbies. Each individual print is shaped to give dimension and varying angles of reflection that shimmer and change with the daylight and the viewer’s angle as they move through the space. Accenting these large works will be smaller scale pieces utilizing the same technique.
Chris Dahlquist is a Kansas City based visual artist who learned to use a camera and darkroom as she was learning to ride a bicycle and write in cursive. After spending the early part of her career in commercial photography and film, in 1998 Dahlquist returned to her fine art practice and since then has shown extensively across the United States. In addition to her own studio practice, Dahlquist also works to advocate for artists and help artists build sustainable careers.
