Ryan Bentzinger: namuH

Saturday Sep 12, 2015 - Sunday Jan 3, 2016 Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
410 3rd Ave. SE
Cedar Rapids

In conjunction with the Out of This World exhibition, the CRMA will present a solo exhibition of the work of 25-year old Iowa City artist Ryan Bentzinger. For the past few years, Bentzinger has been working on a science fiction story and illustrating it with 11 x 14” or 16 x 20” watercolors. With the aim of creating a heavily-illustrated book (namuH is Human backwards), Bentzinger has taken an almost-cinematic approach to illustrating his story, akin to the graphic novel but in watercolor.  

The CRMA exhibition will present part of that incomplete story which, because of the number and size of works, will be underway for several years (for example, chapter one alone has 62 paintings). While each work comprises a scene in the story, each also serves as an accomplished, engaging watercolor painting, where the artist pushes the media to its limits. His characters live in a post-apocalyptic world yet are both gruesome and endearing at the same time. The viewer journeys with them on their adventures and enters their watercolor world.  
 
This exhibition is made possible by Rockwell Collins, the Program Grant Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, members of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum’s Annual Fund.
