Jeff P, An Eclectix Artist Interview
Jeff has a mastery of classic naturalist rendering, science based illustrations which also play off abstract shapes colors and objects. Coined “psychedelic naturalism” – think Audubon meets Timothy Leary. Multitudes of graceful snakes coil and intertwine within various environs, graceful and lovingly detailed in their realism.
Featured Artist: Edith Waddell
Edith Waddell creates a sweet candyland of metamorphosis and juxtapositions – pretty in pinks, pastels and brilliant ice cream colors. They project an inkblot-like, kaleidoscopic design – involving floral elements, subtle sexual hints, vintage tablecloth motifs and female reproductive anatomy.
Exhibit Preview: Encyclopedia Botanica
Coming up at Arch Enemy Arts is a spring inspired group show - Encyclopedia Botanica, with the works of 33 artists.
Featured Artist: Jacquelyn McBain
Jacquelyn McBain paints beautifully sensual floral, botanical and nature based works. Long skin-like stems and vines, glisten with hair; delicate petals ooze and sweat and rounded organic shapes erupt from suggestively posed flowers.
Isabella grew up in Virginia, in a large and happy family. Her mother was an artist and who taught her early art skills. In her young adulthood, Isabella spent ten years living and working in NYC, on the Lower East Side. She then moved to San Francisco where she worked with the Whole Earth Catalog. Her early art was sculpture-based – installations which tried to combine 2D with 3D. She now makes her home on a houseboat in Sausalito. (For a peek at her floating studio, click here.)
Eclectix was super delighted to drop in for a studio visit, on our very first houseboat! Artist Isabella Kirkland invited us into her glorious little oasis of dreams, being blessed to live a way of life we have only fantasied about. Her studio calls itself home on the beautiful S.F. Bay off the coast of Sausalito, CA. Blue sky meets green water views from the windows and the salty ocean breeze flows through Isabella’s one room floating studio. Heavenly!
