Bell Jar is proud to present “Oh” a show featuring artists Harley Laffarah (Lafe) Eaves and Kyle Sears. Both graduates of the Kansas City Art Institute’s printmaking program, their work translates to to many mediums including acrylics, pen & ink, gouache and installation. This show explores their fascination with the wilderness and its inhabitants. Subjects are placed into seemlingly unnatural environments rife with symmetry and geometric shapes. Whether inspired by legend or lore, their works take on an otherworldly essence with floating forms and unique perspective. Harley’s pieces are pattern and detail heavy, characterized by meticulous line drawing, while Kyle works with a softer hand and organic flow. Together their pieces marry color and form to create an adventurous look at the world around us.
Harley’s work has been featured around the Bay Area in such galleries as Guerrero Gallery, The Shooting Gallery and 111 Minna.
Kyle Sears currently resides in Kansas City and has shown at several galleries there including Spitfire Gallery and Urban Culture Project.
