Living in the Pacific Northwest, one becomes used to rain and gloom, and after a while, it’s just a part of life and seasonal disorders seem nonexistent. Puddletown at Compound Gallery will feature artists’ takes on rain from Thursday, December 4th, 2008 (First Thursday) through December 24th, 2008. Here are some notable artists from this opening:
Robert Fayze Pellicer seems to combine equal parts surrealism, nature, and spirituality in his works, such as in this piece, entitled Food Web.
Timothy Karpinski must be the type who pays attention to details. Graphic, acrylic, and hand-sewn papers join forces in the elegant I Dream of the Forest.
Colors bleed, swirl, and transform to join forces with unpredictable shapes in Max Kauffman‘s The Block Is Hot.
Elliott Wall makes the simple female form intoxicatingly haunting and fascinating with ease, such as in this piece, Moth.
In the case of Eli Effenberger and this piece, Over The Rainbow, digital paints are just as good as the real thing.
Eatcho seems to prefer painting and drawing on recycled papers and wood panels, and for good reason. His illustrations and exceptional compositions exclusively hold their own, with no need for detailed backgrounds.
Sophie Franz, shown in the post below, will also be showing her illustrations and drawings at this group show.
