Chris Kline

There they are

January 8, 2010 – January 30, 2010

Opening: Friday January 8th, 6-10pm



AHN|VHS is pleased to present “There they are”, an exhibition of new drawings by Philadelphia artist Chris Kline. The artist’s comic abstractions feature neon hued characters who take influence from and incorporate elements of a wide range of sources from vintage cartoons and cubist abstraction, to science fiction, and mythology and mysticism. The work is often humorous with a clear penchant for the absurd, a style and sensibility that stems from the artist’s interest in comic illustration. He is also known as a highly skilled silk screen printmaker with a strong and radical grasp of color and nuance. Kline has produced many zines as well, often in collaboration with other artists.


Chris Kline is a current member of Space 1026 in Philadelphia. Past exhibitions include “Paper Crystalz” with Jason Hsu at Pagent Soloveev, Philadelphia, PA, 2009, and “Total Totem” with Greg Pizzoli at Padlock Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, 2008. Past group exhibitions include “Cave Mind” curated by Jesjit Gill at 107 Shaw, Toronto, Ontario, 2009; “Monsters Show” 3 and 4, at Domy Austin and Houston, TX in 2008 and 2009; “Paper Jam” curated by Anthony Dihle at Civilian Art Projects in Washington, DC, 2009; and inclusion in three exhibitions at Giant Robot in New York and San Francisco from 2008-2009.


This will be the final exhibition at AHN|VHS gallery. There will be a gallery closing event on January 30th which will be open to the public. We would like to thank everyone for their support during the gallery’s run. As we leave

AHN|VHS we are pleased to be moving towards new endeavors, and we trust that your interest in our respective projects will continue into the future.
