The design conceived for this gallery was inspired by a desire to both feature the angular geometries found throughout the historic mill building and to set off the vibrant red that has been used as the signature color of its renovation. To this end, the artist created a composition in which interlocking and overlapping bands fit together to create an array of rectangles, diamonds, and bisected squares. And, he used a cool palette of greens and blues to contrast with and give greater definition to the hot red of the duct work overhead.

The dynamism and responsiveness of Marshall’s work made him the ideal artist to launch the first in a series of ongoing collaborations between Revolution Mill and the Weatherspoon Art Museum. This exciting project will remain on view into 2017, and further collaborative projects (WAMRev) between Revolution Mill and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, UNCG are in the works. 

Based outside Raleigh, North Carolina, artist James Marshall (aka Dalek) bridges artistic worlds. In museums and galleries, his paintings reflect formal training at the Art Institute of Chicago and time as studio assistant to renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. In city streets across the country, he's recognized for mural projects that uses geometric compositions to dramatic optical effect. No matter where or how he works, Marshall's painting reverberate with bold colors and rhythmic compositions conceived in response to the space and environment.

The WAMRev Gallery 1250 is located at 1250 Revolution Mill Drive, Greensboro NC
