“Up on the roof countin’ pigeons” – Chris Stain at Carmichael (CA)

‘Up on the roof countin’ pigeons’

A solo exhibition of new work by Chris Stain
Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art is proud to present Up on the roof countin’ pigeons, the first West Coast solo exhibition of work by Baltimore artist Chris Stain. Artwork featured in the exhibition will include stencil, spraypaint and mixed media on metal and found objects.

For Up on the roof countin’ pigeons, Chris Stain will transform the gallery into a NYC rooftop scene, complete with pigeon coop and live jazz music. The enigmatic stencil portraits integrated into the large-scale installation pierce the gaze of viewers and offer a unique perspective of contemporary inner city life.

“My work explores the emotional and physical struggle of growing up in an urban environment. Through hand-cut stencils and installations made from found materials I hope to inspire compassion for the often overlooked individuals of society.” – Chris Stain
