With the mysterious cityscapes of de Chirico, assemblage figures recalling Dada's automatons and the mannequins of Carrà, the absurd machinations of Remedios Varo, and the archeological reminiscence of Salvador Dalí, Ryan Price explores farcical parables and mythological fables, inspecting mortality but with the whimsy of a jester.

These disconcerting dreamscapes are littered with danse macabre, dressed up in masque. The effect is both fanciful and formidable.


Drawing from the scuola metafisica movement of the early twentieth-century, Price's paintings and prints return to the roots of surrealism, examining the landscapes of modernity but with a fractured aspect. Using Classical and medieval sources as points of reference, this work drags nineteenth-century Romanticism through the treachery of images.

Ryan's surreal still life compositions and enigmatic figural combinations–the minaret-women, cyclopian luthiers, skeletal creatures in cap 'n' bells, motley jinns, and the tokusatsu sword fighter–recreate the workings of dreams, suggesting the Freudian technique of free association. These juxtaposed objects and figures transmute mythologies into signs that transcend the intervention of the conscious mind.


Considering this exploration of the unconditioned and the absurd, it is no surprise that Ryan pays homage to the lost art of the limerick in his poetry. Contained within the collection included in this show are illustrated pieces that provide further insight into Price's creative process. A Distant Mirror: Poems & Pictures gives the impression of simultaneous eruption of allegory in word and form through automatism, shaping the subconscious into sooth.

Garbology Promos_Event Cover 2.png

Hollerbach's Art Haus presents a group show featuring work by fifteen artists in reflection of the theme of 'trash'. Many have taken a literal approach to this call for entries, using trash as their medium, crafting submissions from discarded, found, and/or recycled materials and post-consumer ephemera as commentary or conservation effort. Others approach the theme more conceptually, addressing the state of disposal through visual exploration of consumption, waste, and the social construction of both material and cultural value.

Central Florida-based artists featured in the show include Kieran Castaño, Nick Criscitelli, Kira Gondeck-Silvia, Daniel A. Harris, Kim Mathis, Bryan Murch, Ryan Price, Richard Reep, Fabienne Riesen, Leah Sandler, and Sapphire Servellon, as well as Orlando expat Stephanie Lister. Work from Richmond-based photographer Mallory Burrell Anderson, Los Angeles’ Danie Flores, and Lee Musgrave of White Salmon, Washington will also be shown.

This show spotlights a wide range of styles and mediums, including assembled sculpture, cyanotype, collage, film and digital photography, as well as oil and acrylic paintings.

Garbology will be on view August 25 - October 27, alongside a solo show of paintings by local artist Priscilla Billingsley. 

This event is in collaboration with Trash Cat Birthday festival at Celery City Craft (opens new page in new window) October 1, 2022, which will benefit the Haven for Injured and Orphaned Wildlife (opens new page in new window)

Alex Jaggers: Threshold States art exhibition poster information

Alex Jaggers' paintings evoke dissociation; they make available atmospheres of drift. Influenced by the illogical scenery of surrealism and informed by the delirium of this protracted postmodern moment, these paintings offer deliverance to delicate landscapes through simultaneously precise and ambiguous floating forms temporarily occupying an infinite threshold on the verge of vastness.

Alex Jaggers is based in Orlando, Florida and has a background in art conservation. She is currently pursuing a degree in art history from UCF.
