My specialty is really oil, though I also work with gouache and water color, if only just the basic techniques. I draw influence from Impressionism and its influences to motion and color. My father used to say I was playing with colors. Maybe he was right. I feel I have grown to enjoy life through a colorful prism, and sense it through my own aesthetic view. Luck has graced me with the opportunity to visit many places and meet many people – the good, the bad, the rich and the poor – staying with them, sharing life with them. Perhaps I will only meet some of them once in my lifetime. Of the paintings that come out of these encounters, a few I finish on the spot; a few must wait until I return to the studio with just enough remaining visual memory to complete. Art is extremely unlimited, but human ability is limited. Definitely there are many mistakes in my works, and inevitably so.

Please enjoy.

Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th Street, Suite 101
Kellie Talbot and Troy Gua pair up in an unlikely road trip to explore themes of migration, manifest destiny, and the unique American yearning to get out on the highway. Presenting new works in mixed media, and oils on canvas and panel, Here is a two-person take on sense of place, movement and choice.

The two artists may have different approaches, but they often end up in the same spot. Talbot creates hyper-real paintings of neon signs, billboards, factories and oddities of the American road-scape. Her large-scale oils blow up certain sections of typography or texture to macro focus, letting us read the flaking paint, burnt-out bulbs and rust like a rebus. Her work often honors the neglected, decaying and passed-by in our modern landscape: old signs, crumbling architecture, forgotten cemeteries.

Gua’s work in mixed media plays with bright colors, shiny finishes, and sheen surfaces, all the better to conjure—and skewer—images of Hollywood perfection. The artist is best known for his “Pop Hybrid” series, visual portmanteaus that overlay the features of two celebrities, making a composite that is both eerily familiar and jarringly strange. His high-gloss works both support and parody our need for recognition, society’s interest in fame and notoriety, and our craze for nostalgia.

Talbot’s focus on American history, craftsmanship and decay contrasts perfectly with Gua’s humorous look at the pop status quo of American culture. From what we leave behind to where we think we want to go, these artists are sending postcards from their exploration of the frontier. Wish you were here! Artists present.

Mar_InTheRed

In the Red Wine Bar: 6510 Phinney Ave N
Featuring work by Jeanne Ramano. A watercolor artist, I work on both watercolor canvas and paper. As you will see from the submissions my subject is primarily dogs – all shapes and sizes. In addition to using  recycled materials my unique approach comes from using my mornings leftover brewed coffee instead of water. Meaning? I mix coffee with my  paints and then give my work a final transparent coffee wash – giving them unusual depth and color. Hope you like what you see!  Artist present.

Film photography to Giclée prints on canvas by Joel Clarin. Joel chooses to work with traditional film cameras, then creates traditional silver gelatin prints or Giclée prints on canvas. Joel tends to prefer black and white images, because it further abstracts the image from the actual space and time it was recorded. His subjects are ‘landscapes’ that attempt to find the grandeur within the ‘ordinary’ and often overlooked. Artists present.
