Table Scrappin' Vol. 1
Chuck & George
Collaborators since their Universityof North Texasart school days, Brian K. Jones and Brian K. Scott will create their most ambitious installation to date in the Conduit Gallery Project Room. Table Scrappin’ Vol. 1 brings the duos black and white drawings to life by recreating the two-dimensional narrative space in a three-dimensional life-sized diorama. The fictional Chuck and George, inspired by longtime art collaborators “Gilbert & George”, sit at a table and show a cross section of life in a slightly-off domestic setting. The pair play a game, watch television, eat, talk, listen and not listen all the while asking the big questions.
Brian K. Jones (Chuck) and Brian K. Scott (George) both earned a B.F.A. from The University of North Texas in Painting and Printmaking, respectively. They formed the collaborative duo Chuck & George in 1990 and have exhibited both separately and collaboratively most recently being honored with the 2013 Dallas Observer Mastermind Award. Brian Jones and Brian Scott live in Dallas,Texas.
