Ultimately, I am intrigued by attraction. What does it mean to pair up, to couple? I am presently interested in contemporary means of self created romantic partnerships and to what length will individuals go to to create this bond. I scour various social media and online dating sources to find men interested in this search. I paint them.

The dualities of all things plague me. I’m not sure if I am empathetic or apathetic. Probably a direct link to the ramifications of said social media and online dating.

Steven Walden

Steven’s style is a mish-mash of Pop Art and Fauvism, as he attempts to present pieces that are dynamic, bold, and tap into the viewer’s childlike awe and imagination where hero worship and vivid colors collide.

My inspiration comes from invoked emotion…faith…a break up… struggles, and relieving stress.  I find I am always inspired by artists like David Choe, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollack but mostly from myself…

I look forward to working on more paintings, finding more inspiration, working to mature my technique, all with the hopes and dreams that one day I can share my journey- through art- with others.

Influenced by life and living, color theory and digital imagery, her work took on a neo-cubist style and she stamped her unique technique. Her color application is rich and the forms well defined with carving and scratch drawing. She prefers to paint on wood panels and composite surfaces, all of which she hand builds, joins and frames. Occasionally, she will do a series of canvas pieces and also works on paper.

SOHA Gallery was conceived in March of 2011 and opened in June of 2011. A lifelong dream, she has figured out how to balance her career with her dream.

I create multiple series simultaneously because each series feeds off each other and I explore different ideas through different techniques at the same time. Many of my paintings reflect my Indian heritage. The colors, forms and symbols in my paintings celebrate my culture and I marry that with my contemporary life as an immigrant in the United States.

I love creating whimsical, fun, cartoon style paintings with a contemporary twist. My art is colorful and happy. I love playing with textures and expressing my thoughts and dreams onto canvas. I primarily paint with acrylics, but I have been known to oil it up a bit, and use mix media. I enjoy life, and I try to transcend that feeling through my art. Every time someone tells me that one of my paintings makes them happy or that it reminds them of a good time, I know my message is being received.

A lot of the motivation for my art is from the work I do in the social work field. I work with and get to know people that are dealing with situations that I could not even imagine going up against. To watch them face these issues and still appreciate the gifts in life is inspiring. When I see so many people struggling and suffering every day, but still find reasons to laugh and smile, it makes it hard not to try to find the joy and sometimes sarcasm when painting. I am the creator of Vodka Bacon Studios.

Myles Keough creates worlds within canvas. Using spray enamel reacting to chemicals he creates a foundation untouched by brush strokes. These foundations defy scale, looking to some as atmospheric and to others microscopic. Within these foundations, Keough introduces architectural elements creating cities complete with names and populations. These cities do not represent actual cities you may have visited, rather a city that only exists within the canvas. Recently the inner working of the cities are being explored; the transportation, economy, people and landmarks.

Since I was able to hold a pencil, drawing and, later, painting have been the core of my interests, as a way to express myself and as my sense and purpose in life. My production ranges from portraits to other works to my most personal paintings.

While human figures and natural elements are basically treated realistically, perspective and architectural elements become often distorted, as we humans see reality from singular points of view. I also tend to use allegories (living symbols), in accordance to collective archetypes, as part of my imagery. I then make both my intellect and intuition work together into the elaboration of one single composition. That’s why my personal paintings can be seen as thoughts translated into images. They belong to a sort of Magic Realism where realistic representation seems immersed in an atmosphere silent and timeless.

I am a storyteller telling stories with a paintbrush. The subject matter of my paintings revolve around the seemingly mundane aspects of a blue collar Midwestern life. I am interested in delving into these environments and the objects within because, through these details, our stories evolve from ordinary to extraordinary.

Moreover, by illuminating the prosaic factions of our lives, the observer is given an insight into each other’s idiosyncrasies through which an understanding and a stronger connection with one another is formed. It is only through empathy that we can morph our plot lines into a beautiful, collective, revolution.

I paint in an impressionistic realism style with acrylics and charcoals.  Visible brushstrokes and distinguishable errors create a sense of struggle.  This struggle is the protagonist in all my works and is meant to enhance the themes of my paintings. Each piece contains failures, doubt, and frustration which then twist and transform into success, belief, and jubilation.

Terri Willits

Drawing on a number of motivators, I am currently working predominantly in mixed media with encaustics. My work meshes the ancient technique of encaustic with varied objects and figures to create images that I find strikingly lyrical, both emotionally and intellectually.

I incorporate drawing, photography, printmaking and found objects into my work without extensive preplanning or consideration for the process itself. While I try to work with the highest quality materials, little thought of the finished work is given prior to beginning a project. I have learned to expect changing environments in my life and find that this perspective translates well when paying tribute to process and creation.

“The paintings I create are a vibrant translation of my world, and I love to incorporate symbolism into the colors and subject matters I choose. Art is a way to express the themes that define my life, the emotions I want to capture and share. In my work, I explore the ideas of love, pain, death, religion, childhood, sexuality, and gender.”

Though Zack has lived a life of diversity there has always been one constant, art. Smithey claims that he has been an artist/creator since he was a toddler when he first learned to hold a mark-making tool and assemble sculptures from mud, sticks and toys. Growing up he played many sports including baseball, soccer, basketball, football, wrestling and boxing.  He also had a short stint as a professional armwrestler winning a state championship in 2004. But, he was more than just a “jock”. He played the viola for 8 years and was in various symphonies and orchestras. He has many inventions and received his first patent as a senior in high school. He has a BFA in Studio Art and a Master’s in Education. As an adult, Smithey has had an array of various jobs; he worked as a landscape designer building retaining walls for 10 years, he was a bouncer for 3 years, he’s rehabbed/rented/flipped several houses, taught high school art for 7 years, painted the sets at the MUNY for 5 years, day-traded on the stock market for 2 years, and currently owns a prominent restaurant in St. Charles, Miss Aimee B’s tea room and gallery.  Zack has had over 60 solo shows and group shows, has done art/film work for Lincoln Center in NYC, was commissioned to do Album art for a band in Brooklyn, and has been published in the New Yorker, StreetScapes, St. Louis Homes & Lifestyles, Uptown Magazine and St. Charles Magazine. Smithey’s work is in numerous private and public collections.
