Rocky Asbury

ATHLETE TURNED ARTIST

“In 2015 I hung up my cleats and put away my golf clubs only to pick up a paintbrush. I knew without any training the deck was stacked against me but I still felt the challenge and believed I could do it. Some would say being self-taught I would be at a disadvantage and that may be so, but I also feel as if I have an advantage because I follow no rules or instructions and everything is usually 100% spontaneous. I use everything from acrylics to oil sticks/paint and spray paint. I also use brushes, scrappers, and pallet knives.”

Rose Braun

ARTIST

“As far as meaning in my work, I like to keep things open-ended and ambiguous, and leave specific interpretations of the images to the individual viewer. I appreciate and have been inspired by artists who are able to convey intense emotion in their work, and also those who have made biting social commentary. Both Goya and the German Dada artists come to mind as examples. I continue to strive to keep my work feeling raw and uncontrived.”

Juan Carlos Collada

MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE

“Collada Art feels like the culmination of all the things I’ve done and all the places I’ve been.”
 

Claire Conrad

MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE

“I have always had a great love and interest in color and design. I uncovered my artistic talent by assembling a collection of beautiful antique books many over 120 years old. I soon discovered that my collages unveiled a visual cacophony of color, texture, and pattern. They demonstrate just how beautiful books once were and how many books were works of art unto themselves. Each piece is carefully covered in multiple layers of resin creating a glassy-like finish.”
 

Diana Creasy-Funk

PAINTER

“Ask any artist and they will tell you that they paint because they have to… It’s an unexplainable need. I’m no different. I just paint… I have to. What occurs on the canvas can and does change and evolve in a constant flow, but in the end it’s only just about the process, the ideas, application, physical movement, problem solving, letting go and accepting.”

John Joseph Hanright

MIXED MEDIA

John was always an artist growing up. Constantly drawing and creating with his parents urging. Residing in Laguna Beach CA after high school, John was exposed to California Contemporary Art and alternate methods of painting and assemblage. John lived in Thailand for a short while and this ultimately brought even further ideas of concept and the importance of “Text” within his works. Both of these terms in his creative life would prove pivotal in the development of his work.

Laura Harris

Abstract Painter

“Little joy, a little sorrow and always the relentless flow of positive and negative energy. Working from molded under-painting that is felt rather than thought, she makes texture the architecture of her responsive oeuvre, which compels the hand and the eye, revealing that touching is a multi-sensory experience, engaging flesh and spirit.”

Michael Hermesh

PAINTINGS and SCULPTURE

“My art is shaped by how I view the world. I do not believe that there is a state of grace in life. Life is life – it is dynamic, and it is always a struggle. Integrity, awareness, and dignity remain constants. These are elements in life that are unchanging and real that can be spent or thrown away. For me, this is the mystic and beauty of life and the underlying subject matter of all my work.”

Victoria Johnson

Painter

While I have always avoided describing my work as abstract, I’ve come to see the nature of my paintings as driven by the spirit of a figure-ground relationship. Of growing interest to me is a sense of the primal manner in which we relate to the earth’s horizon and how we exist in the context of landscape. Rather than pursuing what is illusory, my approach is experimental. My interest lies in the tension between wanting to avoid abstraction while calling upon elements of landscape that address the primal subject.

Danny McBride

PAINTER

With enough talent to be sought after by luminaries like Tina Turner, The Stones, Supertramp, Chris de Burgh, and Rod Stewart and secure two major records deals as a CBS recording artist, Danny McBride is truly one of Canada’s best-kept secrets, or as he puts it “invisible in the Fast Lane.”

Keith Mikell

Multi-media Artist

“The voice of artist should reach out to not only entertain and beautify, but to touch people emotionally whether it be sentimentality or call to action. Because art is organic, we should make it fresh and relevant for people of all cultures to understand, especially in this renewed era of blatant racism, cultural divisions, terrorism, and beguiling social ignorance.”

Julio Mendoza

PAINTER / SCULPTOR

Julio Mendoza was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1962. He obtained a degree in Engineering at the Polytechnic University in Kirguistan (1986), founding and directing the first student theater at that Soviet school. Upon graduation, he returned to Cuba to work on the plans for constructing the Havana Metro. While working on that project, he came into contact with the historians, architects, and urbanologists beginning to work in the reconstruction of Old Havana, which had recently been declared patrimony of humanity by UNESCO. His interest in the fledging project led him to a degree in Urban Archeology from the Cuban Academy of Science (1992). After graduation in 1992, he participated in many of the original research and reclamation projects of the Archeology Office of Old Havana, including the spectacular Spanish fortifications of El Morro and La Cabaña as well as the legendary Necrópolis de La Habana.

Kato Rempel

FIGURATIVE OIL PAINTINGS

Kato’s figurative oil paintings often embody a sense of longing for the unknown.  We feel this in the dichotomy between what we see and what exists in our own special world of our mind. In pushing subject matter, her earlier work was an expression of intimacy and connectedness. Her recent paintings voice a narrative of strength and blossoming womanhood.

Scott Travis

ABSTRACT ARTIST

You can see from his beginning works being very abstract and decidedly different, much like his influence Gerhard Richter, self-taught he has learned and grown to find his niche in a more contemporary American pride, power, sorrow, and imagery of patriotism.

His inspiration comes in many forms and from his admiration of works Gerhard Richter, Ai Weiwei, and Michelle Keck.
