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: Dennis McNett
Dennis McNett creates graphic wood carvings which he then hand paints and colors. He has merged the two mediums (sculpture and painting) into one gorgeous outcome – full of texture, dimension and movement. His works range from fine art block prints to contrasty skate decks, with a strong leaning towards wildlife imagery – animals which are loaded with character and energy. With a hint of folk art and rock poster flavor, they are dynamic eye candy to behold!
Featured Artist: Ellen Jewett
Ellen Jewett is an Ontario artist with a background in Anthropology as well as Fine Art. This crossover is evident in her subject matter, uniting science and art into a sculptural fantasy. Her work is a trip to a natural history museum, interpreted into surrealist sculpture. The result is a beautiful morphing of nature, into beings that aren’t real, but that we really wish were…
Exhibit Preview: Brian Mashburn, Contenders
Coming up in Los Angeles this weekend is a solo exhibit by Brian Mashburn, titled Contenders. His beautiful landscapes feature deserted cities, wildly majestic tangled trees, and usually one other lonely life form perusing a damaged misty environment.
Peca, An Eclectix Artist Interview
Peca was born in Argentina and currently lives in Barcelona. In spite of the language barrier, we’ve tried to accurately translate her words to share with you. Her fantastic art is extremely lively, full of childlike enthusiasm and capering wildlife. Swirling and transcending in a universe of halos, her anthropomorphic flora and fauna sport the all-knowing middle eye, sometimes as a belly button. Peca’s brilliant colors and singular vision mesmerize the viewer – her crazy wonderland and surrealist creatures enchant and enthrall.
The Wonderbirds of Heather McKey are delightful, imaginary feathered creatures with brilliant colorations and large human-like soulful eyes, embellished with organic forms. Sometimes they take on an anthropomorphic presence or merge with other lifeforms – sporting butterfly wings, dressed in pinecones or transported by shells.
