SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Dec. 11, 2017 - PRLog -- Royse Contemporary is excited to announce the solo exhibition of mixed-media artist Charmagne Coe entitled Pan Door, featuring a vast selection of her surreal drawings and paintings that combine watercolor, ink and pastel. The artworks are fantastical, and yet they are also rooted in the material and immaterial substance of daily life and history. The artist's most recent work rawly pushes the limits of her skills and media. Coe reveals that her work expresses the vulnerable human experience of opening doors in oneself, and thus discovering new facets that can be strange at first, revealing, and quite verdant. "Coe's unhindered style, luminous color palette, sinuous lines, and delicate forms lure the viewer in where they can further examine and reflect upon themselves," states curator Nicole Royse.

The artist employs spirit drawing/writing and meditation while working in order to be fluid and receptive, resulting in work she terms 'expressive surrealism'. In weaving elements, characters, and environments together, Coe illustrates the tangible and intangible ways people connect to one another, society and their natural world. The driving forces of her work are love and egalitarianism. When viewing the works featured in Pan Door, it feels as if one is opening doors: "Behind each one you may see the shifting of a paradigm, the rich dynamics within a relationship, accepted pain and/or the pursuit of joy," elaborates Coe.

Coe received her Bachelors of Arts degree from Northern Arizona University in elementary education with a minor in fine arts. She has exhibited at the ASU Institute for Humanities Research, Arizona Opera, Center on Contemporary Art in Seattle, the Coconino Center for the Arts and most recently at Chartreuse Gallery. Her work has been included in numerous publications including Utne Reader, Luxe Interiors + Design, Creative Quarterly, and gate-fold album art design for ambient group, Pausal.

The opening reception will take place Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 5:00-10:00pm coinciding with the weekly Thursday night Scottsdale ArtWalk in Old Town Scottsdale. The evening will feature an opportunity to meet the artist, light hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and live music. Pan Door will be on view through Saturday, February 3, 2018. Royse Contemporary is located in the Marshall Square complex at 7077 E. Main Street, Suite 6, Scottsdale, AZ 85251 (located on the south side of Main Street just west of Marshall Way).
