Jason Mitchell | Artist Statement
I am fascinated with the journey that includes an awakening of one’s self. With Dream Away, I wanted to capture the sense of a being who was emerging, being pushed from one reality to another, traveling through a between state on their way to complete a metamorphosis. I ask my subjects to explore a loss of control, but a sense that they are being guided, pushed and pulled by another sentient being, as they make their way to a new self. They represent the soul of a magical creature on a journey through the limbo that connects their past understandings to this new unknown.
THE LAST SUMMER | The Art of Mildred & Pacolli w/ Vancouver duo, Jamie Bizness & Caroline Weaver + UK multi-media artist Grand Dame
Opening Reception: Friday June 5th 2015 | 5pm-Late (Through July 30th)
Although comprised of five unique artists, the Last Summer exhibit features two creative duos in San Francisco’s Mildred & Pacolli and Vancouver’s Jamie Bizness & Caroline Weaver. Inspired by iconography, film noir, pulp fiction covers and more, the bold paintings and silk screens of UK’s Grande Dame (Tiffany McGinnis) punctuate the show while Jamie and Caroline feature their first collaborative series of scenes governed by predatorial animals ordained in symbology and gold leaf. Mildred & Pacolli live and create in the moment and in turn create moments with each work speaking loudly and playfully in bold colors and a playful, youthful narrative which reflects the laid back character of the artists themselves.continue

The pairing of Michael Page and Gabriela Cobar has been made for all those who love, enjoy and admire painting as a preferred artistic medium. Complimentary in skill level, creative confidence, color palette and a profound punctuation of brush strokes the paintings of both Michael and Gabriela command attention.
Lucid yet mysterious, surreal, deep, complex, vast, rich, compelling and masterful – these two painters will not disappoint!continue
