Featured Artist: Caitlin Fennelly

Caitlin is a visual artist working in Seattle. She renders boundaries between real and invented and invented space using a combination of chalk pastel and acrylicc painting. Caitlin’s work explores themes of alternate realities, gender and religious representation. She uses classical approaches to portray figures in comtemplaive mindfulness; as the process of finding, losing and defining edges and texture takes patience and presence. Living in a culture wrought with distractions, fast interactions and instant gratification, our sense of patience is disrupted. Her objective is to create images that slow down and encourage the viewer to be here now.

Fabric of the Night Sky: Illustrations by Julia Y
February 10- March 05

Artist Reception Friday, February 10, 6-8PM

Astrology is humanity’s search for our own reflections in the night sky. Each viewer projects an image of themselves on to the stars, and the stars reflect back powerful avatars.

The constellations and myths of the twelve zodiac signs have been observed for thousands of years across multiple continents. From classical mythology to Renaissance art to daily horoscopes, each era has its own way of keeping alive the stories that are woven into our collective consciousness.

This series is my visual retelling of the zodiac signs, based on my own interpretations of the myths and shapes of the constellations. I have combined my own sense of color, gesture, and unique mixed-media process to create a new incarnation of these ancient symbols. Each piece starts with a gestural drawing which is then printed on fabric, collaged to a background, painted and finally embroidered with an overlay of its constellation.

We are excited to welcome local artist Derek Orbiso Dizon to Flying Bike for the February Phinneywood ArtUp!  Come check out his works while you sip on a glass of the new Endo IIIPA, Kill or Be Kilt Scotch Ale, or any of our other 15 taps of fresh-brewed craft beer.

Derek Orbiso Dizon is a Filipino American visual artist based in Seattle.  Born to immigrant parents from the Philippine Islands, the art Derek creates are expressions of a path in navigating and reclaiming the spirit, memory, and stories of his Ilokano, Cebuano, and Bikolano ancestry.  Derek believes cultural work and artistic expression can be used as a vessel for healing and resistance not only for Filipinos within the diaspora, but for all peoples around the world who have been impacted by centuries of colonization, war, genocide, and displacement.  Much of Derek’s work centers around stories of intergenerational grief, reclamation, and liberation.  As an organizer, Derek values the importance of community-centered healing arts spaces.  Derek is a member of the KapwaMana Collective, co-founder of the API Flying Bookshelf, and a community organizer with API Chaya. Recently, his latest works have been showcased at Out of Sight 2016 and SPEAN Rajana ARTS Summit: InterXections.

When I look into someone’s eyes or stand in the presence of nature, they are the muse. I use painting as my medium to express a feeling I cannot capture in words.

white mandalas on multi-colored backdrop

Featured Artist: Michelle Hickman

Michelle Hickman grew up in New York, graduated from Harvard, and now lives in the Seattle area.  She paints primarily with acrylics on canvas, and especially loves the beauty, symmetry, and symbolism of mandalas.  These ancient circular patterns are found across a broad array of cultures and religious traditions.  Michelle’s process begins with creating a backdrop to set the mood of the piece; next, she uses a compass, protractor, and ruler to create the circular grid; finally, acrylic paints are used to add various intricate details in a symmetrical pattern.  The process is very meticulous and slow, but simultaneously very rewarding.  Creating and studying these motifs can be a meditative tool, leading to increased feelings of peace and balance.

Presenting Luminiferous

My work stems from a long running affinity for botany which, when I decided to follow my passion for photography, opened a whole new world of possibilities. I call them mandalas because each one is a microcosm of our dear Mama Earth and the land I forage from.

The diversity around us is fascinating and I’m in a full immersion course. I feel compelled to forage, dissect, and research all the plants I uncover. I create small studies with the vast array of flora by my home in the Pacific Northwest.

I capture my wild-crafted finds by natural light, spending hours making and photographing them. It brings me a joy I have never experienced. The flowers, seeds, nuts and leaves seem to speak as I arrange them. Time takes on new meaning due to the short shelf life of the plants.

These nature studies help me reflect on the perfectly imperfect beauty of an impermanent life. They keep me present.

Featured Artist: Jennifer Quick

My name is Jennifer Quick and I am a 28 year old Northwest native, born and raised in Lynnwood, Washington. After avoiding pursuing the obvious throughout my college years, I am now a self-taught artist/muralist, working primarily with acrylic on canvas. I have never been able to define my painting style, and find it quite entertaining that others struggle to do so as well, but I like it that way because it is actually very fitting of my personality. My inspiration tends to come from my world travels, the PNW, and just bringing to life the amusing little thoughts and images that come to mind on a daily basis. Every piece of artwork is created by hand; I do not make any prints. I like to know that those who invest in my paintings can take pride in knowing that they own a truly original
piece of artwork.

Featured Artist: David Eggehorm

Currently I am a Ballard High School student and paint whenever I can. I enjoy all types of art from the pencil drawings I did when I was younger to Aerosolgrafia (spray paint art), Acrylic on Canvas and Oil on Canvas. My most recent being Oil on Canvas. Over the last year, I have been looking into the field of digital concept art. I find that trying different art styles is enjoyable and has contributed to my growth as an artist.

I paint because it makes me happy, and if I can make others happy in the process then I know I’m doing the right thing. When I paint, I am always looking for new ways to express my ideas and get the viewer engaged as much as possible. My goal as an artist is to become the best I can be and use my God given talent to bless others.

Featured Artist Julie Gautier-Downes

In any given landscape there are moments, which tell a story about a place and the people that dwell there. In a metropolis or a ghost town these moments of loneliness and abandonment that can be looked over or forgotten. It is in these spaces that there is an opportunity to see and understand the world in a different way. By exploring, collecting and photographing the world as an archaeologist or detective gives intensity to the seemingly banal and ordinary.

The absence of the human figure in the work provides a space for the viewer to project themselves into the desolate and abandoned environments that are captured. By pairing photographs of these deserted and abandoned environments with found personal items it provides fertile ground for narratives to emerge. The items collected are items one might find in a family album or desk drawer and provides a strong connection to the missing figure.

The types of spaces that are captured range greatly from the haunted skeletal frame of a failed dream house to a forgotten city by a man made sea that has a vibrant past. The ghostly representation of the locations exposes moments of quietness, sadness, and abandonment. In some cases these places are desolate due to a tragedy or economic downturn and the images and collected items speak to the way in which it happened.

It is the universality of loss that allows the viewer to find the beauty in these abandoned spaces and objects. With the hope that it enlightens them to see how sublime life is and how connected we are to each other.

I have spent many years figuring out who I am as a photographer, but it has all come back to where my heart belongs. Capturing the spirit of the animals we love so dearly brings me the greatest happiness. I believe that a portrait can be not only a way to document the memory of those we love, but more importantly, a piece of artwork that we cherish for the rest of our lives.”

 Featured Artist:  Marika Garland – pet photographer.

Since I was a child, I have captured the joy and love of animals through photographs. I have spent many years figuring out who I am as a photographer, but it has all come back to where my heart belongs. Capturing the spirit of the animals we love so dearly brings me the greatest happiness. I believe that a portrait can be not only a way to document the memory of those we love, but more importantly, a piece of artwork that we cherish for the rest of our lives.  http://www.dirtiedogphotog.com/

Featured Artist: Mya Kerner

In her oil paintings, Mya Kerner looks out to the mountains and seas, noticing geological disruptions, moments and parts within the landscape. Together, these notes present a fractal image of the whole. Scratched lines break  through the slopes, while flecks of white dapple on eroded surfaces, recalling their winter dress. Mya attempts to capture these specific moments and leaves the rest in the haze. You can find more of her work on her website (myakerner.com) and follow her process on Instagram (@mya_kerner_art)

Featured Artist: Ryan Synovec

Ryan Synovec is an award winning fine art photographer from Seattle, via Chicago and Minnesota. Since 2007 he has been shooting exclusively with a Holga medium format plastic camera. Ryan’s projects Ethereal, Faraway, and Chicago-in Contrast, were all shot with a Holga and infrared film, a combination used by a very limited group of photographers. This technique can be extremely challenging, but when successful, the result is a uniquely beautiful, dreamlike image.

Ryan has emerged as one of the leading photographers using this technique. His Holga infrared images have been published multiple times in B&W Magazine. Several images appear in the 2ndedition of Michelle Bates book “Plastic Cameras, Toying with Creativity”. Ryan’s work has been shown in galleries and exhibitions throughout the country.

SAD

Featured Artists: Paul Komada, Paul Louis Nelson

SAD Gallery is thrilled to announce our third exhibition, PAULS WORK, featuring Seattle-based artists Paul Komada and Paul Louis Nelson. Trained in the tradition of abstract painting, Komada has expanded into areas of sculpture, installation, and performance. On view for this exhibition, Komada’s elegant, soft-sculptural forms use techniques of abstraction and knit-work, walking the line between craft and high-art. Nelson’s work performs a similar balancing act. At once sincere and tongue-in-cheek, his pieces pull heavily from kitsch and craft while maintaining the meticulous presentation and display modes of contemporary art. Additionally, Nelson’s background in photography remains evident in his focus on the recording and monumentalizing of time.

Puzzle pieces, stitching, layers of paint, each piece in PAULS WORK is a testament to hours spent, repeated motions, decisions made. Time-in and technique are laid bare for scrutiny. Using modes of production accessible to most, Komada and Nelson utilize, if not the ready-made, the ready-to-be-made in their respective practices. The mystery of production moves away from the ‘how’ into the realm of ‘why’, and ‘to what end.’ Through labor and deft handicraft Komada and Nelson elevate their materials, asking questions about worth, time, and what it means to work.

OPENING: Sep. 9, 7-10PM

Featured Artist: Kathleen Green – Arbor Knits | www.arborknits.com
“Growing up in Oregon, I had a wall-sized, tree photo mural in my bedroom. I knew every inch of it before I left for college. As a photo editor and photographer for most of my adult years, I sought out trees as subjects, always thinking of new ways to capture their beauty. Arbor Knits “grew” from my love of nature, trees, and big warm sweaters.
Trees tell beautiful stories of growth, strength, and support. By salvaging branches and treasure hunting for old sweaters, I can give a new life to both. I’m a reuse kind of gal.
I currently reside in Seattle with two cats, one dog, one husband and one almost teenage daughter.”
