Details:Ketchikan, Alaska, Ray Troll will be the Artist-in-Residence at the Red Barn Studio Museum, 212 S. Main St., Lindsborg, Friday, Sept. 03 through Thursday, Sept. 30th. “While at the Red Barn I plan to do a number of pen and ink on paper drawings in my ‘scientific surrealist’ style. I, also, plan to help document and record memories from the Lindsborg art scene from the 1970’s. I have a number of photographs from that era that I plan to share with the community in either a temporary display or a public presentation. Or both!” Regarding “The Halcyon Daze of the ‘Borg, a Photographic Memoir,’ is indelibly printed on my life,” he says. The images convey the spirit and flavor of that unique time in a very small town (Lindsborg) in Kansas. “I bought a 35 mm camera and immersed myself in the world of photography, a form of artistic interpretation and creativity that resonated deeply with me at the time…I loved capturing moments from the world around me and seeing them magically reappear in the Dektol developer. I was awestruck seeing images appear in the plastic trays. I liked the idea of taking formal portraits, of trying to capture the essence of a person in my lens. I would direct my subjects with minimal instructions, most often with a request to simply “go blank” and not to smile at the camera… Smiles were too easy, too posed. I wanted something deeper…Something to maximize the mystery. My subjects were all friends to some degree or other. Some were role models for me, artists making their way and I wanted to glean the secrets of their survival in the creative world. I don’t pretend to think I captured all the important artistic figures in town, far from it. In the Seventies and early Eighties, the cultural residue of the Sixties lingered in the air, but the excitement of creativity was palpable in that town. In the streets, in the bars, in the raucous parties in the ‘slums’ above Main Street, the ‘keggers’ down by the river and ‘re-has’ out in the country. The Swedish landscape painter, Birger Sandzén, lit a creative fuse in Lindsborg in the early 1900’s. Lester Raymer fed off that heat in the Fifties and Sixties and left his legacy to the town. Mike Hartung’s powerful body of work has only recently exploded into sight and I trust that its impact will be felt for decades to come. The art endures.” Ray Troll was educated at Bethany College and Washington State University. He has lectured at Cornell, Harvard and Yale and has shown works at the Smithsonian and has even had a ratfish named after him (a New Zealand species Hydrollagus Trolli.) From his tree-top studio, high above the Tongass Narrows in rain-swept Ketchikan, Ray Troll draws and paints fishy images that migrate into museums, books and magazines and onto tee shirts sold around the globe. Troll is a 2006 recipient of the Alaska Governor’s Award for the Arts and won a gold medal for distinction in the natural history arts from the Academy of Natural Sciences in 2007. In May of 2011, Troll joined an elite group of Alaskan artists by receiving the 2011 Rasmuson Foundation Distinguished Artist Award. Most recently, he and science writer Kirk Johnson were awarded a $50,000 joint fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation to support a book project, “Cruising the Eternal Coastline: The Best of the Fossil West from Baja to Barrow.” You may see his art at trollart.com For more information, contact the Red Barn at 785 227-2217 and lesterraymer.org.
