    Electric, Wood, Love
    Opening Reception: Fri September 6th 7-10pm.
    On view: Sept.6th-30th.

    This collaborative show exlores the various techniques and methods employed when making functional ceramics. Each artist brings a different skill set to the table, highlighting both ancient and contemporary methods of working with clay. The underlying theme, however, points to the artist and their material. No matter how or why it is made, the desire to work with clay is fully illustrated through the artists’ touch and affinity towards the material.

Eric Remer Artist Statement:

Happy-Crazy-Monster Paintings!!!-These are  the paintings i make. I paint through their point of view, through monster eyes. They’ve become my main source of influence. And the City has become their stage. So in a sense, they’re City Monsters. Sesame Street on acid.

 At times I create their worlds with the simplest thing entering their world from ours, like light or a heart or a star. Seeing something for the first time with new eyes and wonder.
 I paint from pure imagination, often without thought nor intention. Until something appears and I just go with it. Till it makes me smile.

Eric Kennedy Artist Statement:

Viewers often have difficulty accepting the suggestive paintings of Eric Kennedy as purely abstract images.  This is owed to the precisely shaded contours and well-defined forms which exist within an ambiguous space and invite observers to make very personal assumptions about the subject.

    The cloudy, atmospheric foundation is created through Kennedy’s signature layering of wax paper and paint and evolves through many stages—each one a completed painting in itself to an outside observer—before its final realization. Kennedy’s working process has been developing for several years and, along with his innovative use of found materials, allows his work be both complex and subtle, evocative and abstract.

    The result is startlingly organic paintings, imbued with unexpected colors, and possessing a certain unusual softness and warmth.  Perhaps most surprising of all, the images are actually beautiful.  Kennedy’s work is distinct, achieving an extraordinary depth and range of texture which must be viewed in person to appreciate.
