Slow Culture is proud to present the latest solo exhibition from artist Travis Millard: “Kiss My Aura” opening tonight from 7-10PM, showcasing a culmination of new and previously unseen works spanning the artist’s comprehensive career. From brilliantly intricate abstractions to obsessive doodles scrawled across old junk mail, works showcase a seasoned illustrator exploring his versatility through various incarnations of conventional insecurities. Drawings examine a variety of themes including memories, dreams, and other familiar modern anxieties dealt.
We’ve been hanging out with Travis all week getting ready for the show, and thought we would share a behind the scenes look at what he’s been working on.
Concurrently, the artist will also debut a collection of his pancake curiosities sealed in resin. Over the past year and a half, Travis has been crafting pancakes for the internet while also quietly archiving a number of them by preserving these culinary creations on a plate in resin. Derived from punk logos, horror films and other odd concepts, Travis pulls from ideas one might not normally consider for this age-old family tradition.
Travis has curated a wide range of new and old works for this show. Some of them date back to 2006 like this one below.
On hand will also be some of the original artwork from his collaboration with The Hundreds.
This is Rodney, Travis’ #1 partner in crime.
