studio e   Warren Dykeman continues to “hunt for the right kind of wrong” as he merges folk art, Neo-primitive, graphic art, and typography in his latest mixed-media collaged paintings. In Attention Span , his second solo exhibition with studio e, and following his recent show at Volta NY, Dykeman has found an original way to bring digital designing tools into his artwork, and juxtapose those with the physical and abusive handling of his pieces. The resulting works showcase the artist’s signature iconography including exquisite weeds, “big dumb boots,”, potted shrubbery, flaming wigs, floating scaffolding, and mysterious silhouetted figures achieved by digital manipulation of a hand-drawn form and shape, further reworked by traditional painting and drawing techniques.

Bridge Productions  This February, Bridge is pleased to introduce Seattle painter, print-maker, and multimedia artist Sue Danielson PERMEABILITY OF HARDNESS.

Danielson’s newest body of work on paper and panel continues her exploration of maplike forms and treatise on memory and mark-making.

This can be good or bad for plants…Although it seems we would want a filament bulb because it has a linear spectrum (all color equal) unfortunately filament bulbs are very wasteful.” – Jueqian Fang.
