Artist Reception November 19th 6-9 PM

Randy Won’s works reflect his ongoing exploration of nature and the man-made world. I want to see how line, color, texture and the illusion of light and space behave, in harmony or conflict, as natural materials versus materials we use in construction.  I want to disrupt the conventional perceptions paintings and drawings by unexpectedly setting up a series of dilemmas.

Mathew Glaiyser’s artwork is raw, expressionistic, and completely improvised.  When I create art I plunge into the vast unknown, working with no plans or expectations.  I work with a vigor that approaches a type of mania, frantic, yet controlled.  The implementation of random carvings and surface treatment further emphasizes the abstract expressionistic aesthetic I desire.  I believe that art and the creative process is synthesized by subconscious thought and desires.  For me, it is a visceral and meditative process. 

Michael Sirota Michel  makes odd things. I don’t know what he is doing. He makes all these pieces, then assembles them. I guess he has a plan.” I make esthetic esoteric iterations. Just joking. I make things I like. My interest has been robots and teapots. Sometimes robot standing a pose of “I’m a Little Teapot.” I work on a piece and get new ideas and use them in new pieces. I get to do things I like to do.
