“Being a painter in SoHo, in the late ’80s, I kept seeing these Cibachrome prints, big shiny photos. I wanted to bring some of that back into painting, to steal it back.”

sid garrison

Sid Garrison’s colored pencil drawings come into being through a process that he describes as a kind of “call and response” and sometimes even a “skirmish.”

William Lewis has never been a painter in a hurry. In the eleven years since moving to Boise, Idaho he has quietly worked away in his studio, taking in his new surroundings,
and excavating a complex of vernacular, esoteric and fine art sources.

The ceramic sculptor has turned her ethos on its ear to produce a sculptural installation that is more flora than fauna.

thomas pathé

Thomas Pathé’s paintings strike an electric balance between the technological and the sublime.

Robert Hardgrave

Seattle-based artist Robert Hardgrave’s elegant mixed-media works might appear to have been created by a reserved and urbane artist, one perhaps with deep roots in academia.

james richards

john sonsini

John Sonsini says of his thickly painted portraits of Latino men that he is “remaking the person’s image.”
