Friday, February 10 at 6 PM – 10 PM
Three Seattle-based artists come together in a show that echoes all things otherworldly and dreamlike.
Claudio Duran’s work is inspired by surrealism, fantasy, street art, anime, junkyards, and the process of decay. Abby Fields builds a tension between light and dark, her imagery subtle and haunted. She is inspired by animals, the theater, beautiful faces, and nature. Gabriel Marquez culminates themes of line and motion, stillness, progression, and digression in a realm of emptiness where things fall apart and come together again.
“Mayfly” – Claire Mack and Barbie Stattman
Barbie Stattman is a freelance artist from Colorado Springs, CO. She attended the College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia and earned a BFA in Illustration in 2016. She expresses her love for visual storytelling by incorporating her fascination with history, folklore, and surrealism into organic, decorative compositions.
Claire Mack is a native Californian, though spent most of her life in the cool, rainy, moss-covered NW. She earned a BFA from the California College of the Arts in Painting. Viewing artmaking as a source of transcendence, she believes that art has a profound healing influence on artist and viewer alike. Her work portrays figurative images, symbolic beings that represent inner experiences. She often uses imagery from nature hoping to provide a common visual language that is both soothing and provocative.
