Featured Artist: Torrey Edwards {Porch Swing Studios}

Torrey is a photographer in the Seattle Metro area. Her passion has always been to find a unique perspective on life through her lens, which can include people or places or panoramas. This month’s display is focused on
capturing light. Where it’s not the solid objects that are the subject matter, but the light they interact with. A reminder to take with us as we enter the darker days of Winter.

 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/

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.

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.

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.”

Opening Reception: UNDERPINNIGS
Rachel Lee

“Climate change” calls to mind images of increasingly severe wildfires and droughts and stranded polar bears, but there are devastating changes taking place beneath the surface of the seas due to ocean acidification (sometimes referred to as “global warming’s evil twin” in the media), the mostly invisible and cataclysmic effects of which will reverberate through marine ecosystems as well as human communities worldwide.

In this debut show, Rachel Lee, an interdisciplinary artist with a keen interest in the sciences as well as contemporary drawing and painting, visually highlights recent findings about the many ocean species being impacted by the changing ocean chemistry, from familiar oysters and corals, to the fascinating and alien world of the microscopic zooplankton that line the foundation of ocean food webs.

Opening reception features live performance by The Black Chevys.

Seattle Artist League was founded by a student and a teacher, with the belief that everyone can benefit from a daily dose of art. Whether it is through a weekly class, a workshop, regular studio work, or reading a daily blog post about an artist, we believe that art is a benefit to everyone.

The mission of the Seattle Artist League is to facilitate a thriving community of artistically active people by offering creative space and intellectually informed, hands-on art instruction. The League integrates a studio-based education with academic framework in 2D visual arts media. Our instructors are professional working artists, gathered to foster an environment where the unique talents and perspectives of individual students can emerge and flourish.

The school currently offers courses in drawing, painting, and assemblage.

Featured Artist: Ruthie V

Buddhist philosophies of emptiness and the self fuel this collaboration between Butoh dancer Kaoru Okumura and painter Ruthie V. in her new series “Neither Will This Stay.”

Expressing the enormity of immediate emotions, larger-than-life-size figures transition through solidity to emptiness; move into and out of existence. The emptiness within and around the figures becomes just as much the subject as the body itself. From turbulence to tranquility, these renderings articulate the artist’s experiences of vitality, loss, and acceptance.

Stephanie Morales

I am a homegrown, Seattle born and based artist. Creating art from a young age, I recently returned to my passion through acrylic and pencil mediums nearly two years ago. Both my travels throughout the US and Europe influence my work, much of which is focused on femininity, thought, self-reflection, and beauty. My multicultural background, education in social justice, and varied life experiences contribute greatly to subject of my personal work. My portrait work, both personal and celebrity icon, and a study in line and figure have also recently been fairly popular. One artist I admire and relate to is Frida Khalo. Her work is vulnerable, narrative and highly reflective and I have found my work on some occasions unintentionally modeled after hers.

I make art to highlight the elements of life I value most. It’s a way of reminiscing, finding meaning, and giving these little moments and ideas the attention and admiration they’re worth. As humans, we are consistently submerged in these incredibly complex, intricate, sophisticated environments of contextual and relational oddities and delights- and it seems sometimes the chaos robs us of truly savoring the occasions, emotions, and people that genuinely charm us. Creating art, to me, is about hunting these moments, fascinations, and thoughts down, capturing them, and granting them some form of immortality.

Featured Artist: Margarita Jordache

I paint urban landscapes from direct observation, from the photographs I take from the sites, and memory. I believe urban environments are reflecting the culture of its inhabitants and it differs so drastically from place to place. I tend to pick a scenery that is reminiscent of my Eastern European background and it might be my way of dealing with dislocation and finding a sense of a new place. But I hope that you will enjoy the paintings for your own reasons.

Featured Artist:  Alexander Keyes

Through cataloging and organizing my private domestic space, ak industries lays bare my hopes and dreams, my self-doubt and empowered motivation, and my endeavors to make it as an artist. During a year away from home as artist-in-residence, this work charts the doodles and models that develop out of living alone in an unfamiliar place. As I sit in my little apartment, slightly lonely and bored, I have nothing to occupy my down time but organize my pantry and clean out my fridge. I display my constant struggle to do better and strive for more by hand writing motivations on a collection of found landscape photos. I dream of starting my own corporation and moving out of poverty by using the skills I have gained constructing custom cabinets. Living in a dump of a place, I dream of the modernist homes that I grew to love in school and start to reproduce them from various cereal, beer, and pizza packaging. The particulars of my day-to-day life begin to consume me and I let that minutiae become a portrait of my domestic self.

Featured Artists: Jonathan “Wakuda” Fischer & Eva Yuewang

Eva Yuewang: I have many fetching images coming from my head, and I don’t want to just see the pictures myself, so I attempt to express them in the paintings on my own to share. This is my motive to doing my art.

My theme is surreal. I am obsessed with the kind of feeling it evokes. It looks realistic but more imaginative than the real life, catching the subtle waves of humanity. The characters in my paintings have some paradoxically personality; be it sensitive yet indifferent, innocent yet ruthless, attractive yet unconfident.

Most of the influence in my art can be found in my cultural background. I grew up in China, and thus my outlook of world and its value is all informed by my country. Having spent time in the United States, I now see certain differences between the East and West. This is a phenomenon that I think it is very interesting and influential, and it will be reflected in my art.

Featured Artist: Jessica Byrd

Jessica Byrd is an artist residing in Greenwood, Seattle. She is inspired by community-driven subjects in her artistic practice, which have ranged from painting live at homeless dinners to painting murals on the boarded up windows after the Greenwood explosion. Her latest series has included working with real people in the Seattle community who have willingly come forward to not only model for a portrait, but to answer deep personal questions that she uses to inform each piece. Looking beyond depicting a likeness of the individual, she looks to extract what she believes to be the most real part of them. This exploration of “what makes us human” has been a question that has inspired larger public works in the Seattle community.

Featured Artist: Aleksey K. Aluf

Aleksey Aluf was born in Kharkov, Ukraine in 1981. At age 12 he moved to Edmonds, Washington. This challenging time of change, transition and travel has had a strong influence on the artist.   Aleksey attended Virginia Commonwealth U in Richmond and got his BFA in art education in 2004. Since then he has been working as an art teacher for Edmonds school district. He is passionate about introducing and teaching art to young people, and hopes to grow and mature in his teaching career.  Along with teaching Aleksey spent many hours working with acrylics and mixed media at Edmonds Community College.

Some of the concepts that influence my paintings are: nature and environment, man and destruction of the ecosystems, travel through space and time, butterfly effect and, everyday human desires. I paint things the way I feel them in the physical and metaphysical world. The painting process usually starts with an expressive mood. Large brushstrokes are applied and the work progresses rather quickly. These earlier stages of my paintings are most intuitive and subconscious, almost coming from a dream or a vision.  The painting then takes a more conceptual turn and eventually narrates multiple themes and ideas to the viewer. Being an artist means I am always changing, and although I find this very challenging and unpredictable, it is also most enjoyable.

I am an artist from Washington D.C. i came to Washington state to study art, photography, and the culture. my goal with this selections of images is to help introduce the idea of urban art in public spaces.
