Ryan Travis Christian’s graphite and ink works are compelling abstracts, based on old-fashioned cartoon iconography. The Chicago-area artist has an exhibition of new works (Here We Aren’t Again) at CAM Raleigh.

The drawings “are full of motion, explosions, eye-bulges, jazz hands, frenetic patterns and formal gymnastics worthy of a Futurist’s kaleidoscopic vision of a speeding, pulsating humanity. Like the Futurists and the Cubists before him, Christian is concerned with picturing time and space as fractured and multidimensional.” — Exhibition Notes (Above: Hand of God)
