ON DISPLAY: "Dex: A View of Scale" by OUR STL
“O.U.R. defines itself as being a mural company who uses spray enamel as its primary medium. While we love the look of spray enamel, we are constantly trying to reinvent its uses, applications, and settings. O.U.R. or Operation Urban Renewal is striving to present the feel and look reminiscent of popular graffiti artist crews, but shifting to the focus to present the medium in a positive light. O.U.R. consists of three members: Adam Sherman, Myles Keough, and Justin Dirks, all of whom have painted murals in and around the St. Louis area for three years, with each of them possessing a unique skill set that make the operation work. Sherman has been a woodworker and marquetry wood inlay expert for over a decade, bringing a craftsmen’s level of perfection and skill to the product’s final look. Dirks holds an MFA in studio art from Fontbonne University with an emphasis in Graphic Design. He has been a Head Graphic designer at Vinyl Images for 5 years and allows us to present bids/mock ups at a high level. Keough is the Adaptive Thinking Teacher at The Biome School in the central west end and has been showing art professionally in St. Louis for the last 14 years.
“With the “Dex” series we are using a mix of spray enamel techniques to create worlds or spaces that can defy scale. The enamel ‘reactions’ create a field of color that to some appear to be on a microscopic scale, while others view the scale as colossal reminiscent of galaxies. With this show we are finding inspiration in vibrant colored glass from Third Degree.”
