Indi Go show features Troutman's work

CHAMPAIGN — "Dividing Time," the next show at the Indi Go Artist's Co-op, will be on view from Tuesday through Friday, featuring work by visual artist Christopher Troutman.

The opening reception will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, and the work may be seen from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

Born in Kansas City, Missouri, and raised in Peoria, Troutman completed a bachelor's of fine arts degree at Bradley University in 2003. He then moved to Japan, where he and his wife opened a conversational English school in Kagoshima City.

In 2008, after completing a master's of fine arts degree in drawing and painting at California State University-Long Beach, Troutman taught studio courses in drawing and painting at Eastern Kentucky University, Vincennes University and Eastern Illinois University. He now teaches drawing at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.

In his studio research, Troutman draws the human figure from dynamic perspectives in contemporary urban settings. He uses extreme vantage points to reference comic books, which he further emphasizes by dividing images into multiple sections to suggest the passage of time.

Troutman also uses multi-part drawings to juxtapose aspects of the various places he has lived in the past decade. Indi Go is at 9 E. University Ave., C.
