EK Interview: Van Arno

June 7, 2016

EK_VA_MH
Van Arno's pop surrealist art had me curious from the first view. While almost cartoonish and outrageous in his aesthetic, he's got subject matter in spades. Drawing on culture, religion, and events both historical and current, Van Arno paints scenes that are tomes. Whether you want to spend the time digesting and parsing through the content is up to you, what's indisputable is his work is eye-catching as all hell.

EK Interview: Louie Van Patten

by

March 28, 2016

EK_LVP_MH
Louie Van Patten's paintings are dark and moving. They reveal parts of us we see at the last moment when we turn away from the mirror, the parts we know are there but often can't, or won't. They are colorful, vibrant, loudly emotive, and they plumb some of the deepest parts of the human condition. Check out his interview:

EK_Stephanie Henderson_MH
The work of Stephanie Henderson is steeped in symbology and meaning. Her dark and mysterious pieces make me stare in thought, wondering what was going on in her mind when she painted them, and what's going on in the piece itself.

EK_Julien Mauve_MH
Damn but do I love the photography of Julien Mauve. His range is immense, discussing everything from the future of our society and world in his ethereal and haunting abandoned cities, to the lost innocence we seem to have forgotten, to the darkness of the world and the futility of our attempts to drive that darkness away.

Ben Young is self taught, his sculptures capture the ocean in its quiet moments, the solitude and humility one feels when confronted by something so immense and unyielding. Check out his interview:

EK Interview: Lauren Marx

by

February 26, 2016

EK_LM_MH
My oh my do I love the work of Lauren Marx. Violent, brutal, unrestrained, her art makes me feel primal and stirs something ancient and normally restrained within me. Colorful, beautiful, and elegant, her content is a contradiction, carnal yet refined. And as a person she is deep, insightful, and honest. Her interview is touching and a damn good read:

EK Interview: Joel Rea

by

February 22, 2016

EK_JR_MH
The world of Joel Rea's art is vast and overwhelming, in both scope and meaning. Where does the dream stop, and the real begin? Who knows, as Joel stitches the two together so seamlessly, ice clad rocks, starry and cloud filled skies alluding to a harsh nature, an untamed world foreign to humans. Tigers, powerful and scary to a lone human. And in the middle of it all, men and women, clad in the trappings of modern society, out of place in the real, at home in the surreal. Check out his interview for more more more and existential exploration to boot!

EK Interview: Mario Dilitz

by

February 19, 2016

EK_MD_MH
Mario Dilitz works with wood to create touching, meaningful sculpture. His works are a sort of expose on the human condition, bare emotion painted across bare wood. Our vulnerable, withdrawn, most quiet moments are his focus, and damn does he depict them well. Check out his interview:

EK_SHO_MH
Seung-Hwan Oh's work has been eaten away by bacteria revealing a something far beyond anything a portrait could be. They are terrifying and beautiful, nightmarish and colorful. Check out his interview:

EK Interview: Ben Thomas

by

February 12, 2016

EK_BT_MH
The photography of Ben Thomas makes our world look like a model set. In the most extreme, this can be an exercise in humility, forcing one to consider how infinitesimal we are as human beings, and how tiny our race is in the scope of our planet, and in the greater context of the universe. On another end they provide a window into the beauty and achievement of our species, the monuments we have constructed to ourselves and the world we have wrought together. Check out his interview:

EK Interview: Mary Iverson

by

February 8, 2016

EK_MI_MH
Mary Iverson is a painter from Seattle, her works depict a natural world overrun and polluted by consumerism. The nature in her art is beautiful and vibrant in its own right, but to it so marred by shipping containers and their tendrils is a striking image, indeed. Check out her interview:

EK Interview: Charles Wish

by

February 5, 2016

EK_CW_MH
How far down the rabbit hole do you want to go today? Charles Wish will take you deep, deep down. Americana meets South Asian Art to create art soaked in nuance, overflowing with color, and brimming with microcosmic universes. It's overwhelming in the very, very best of ways. And his thoughts are just as interesting:

EK Interview: Christina Pettersson

by

February 1, 2016

EK_CP_MH
Christina Pettersson's black and white drawings portray a world where mystery still rules. Where the old gods and goddesses are alive and strong, without color she draws living, visceral pieces that draw you in, call to you, make you think of the world that might be, not see the world as it is. Her imagination runs deep and cannot be denied, nor resisted as it calls the viewer to dream with her. Check out her interview:

EK_YCL_MH
The art of Yung Cheng Lin is gripping, compelling, and raw. I feel like I could make a Jackson Pollock out of all the adjectives and emotions I feel staring at his pieces. Damn. Where the hell does it all come from? Check out his interview for a peek:

EK Interview: May von Krogh

by

January 22, 2016

EK_MVK_MH
May von Krogh's ceramics have a common thread, they're soaked in emotion, each a conscious and meaningful meditation on a theme. Besides that, each is an isolated incident, a standalone testament to her ability to create novel and nuanced work. Aesthetically they are deep and penetrating, most of her subjects are children, which makes their expressions all the more effective. Check out her interview
