SIMPLEXITY

Simplexity, a solo exhibition from Portland-based illustrator, features artist and educator Ryan Bubnis. This series of new paintings, drawings and ceramics is bold, graphic and whimsical in approach, Bubnis’ current work focuses on the simplification of shape and form. The title of the exhibition refers to his process: “I’ve pared-down and simplified my imagery with an emphasis on shape-based art making.” That being said, Bubnis spends countless hours researching, sketching, drawing and problem solving.

“Simplicity is complexity resolved.” –Constantin Brancusi
