"The images that I make are reflections on, primarily, how we as humans fit into
this larger world, biosphere, ecology, etc... The work is meant to illuminate small
realities of the current state of that relationship, and where it might be going.
I'm interested in the narrative tradition, while creating images with emotive,
For the most part, I work with the traditional, low-tech medium of woodblock relief
printmaking. This is for many reasons - the accessibility, the physical process, and
the strong, sculptural line. I hand carve all of my wood blocks, with chisels,
gouges, and knives. All of those blocks are then printed in small editions by hand
with archival paper, high quality inks, and pressed with a wooden spoon."
Jeff Mihalyo is a Seattle-based artist working primarily as a painter and
photographer. His humanist compositions are often narrative and symbolic,
which address and questions man¹s position within the natural world. The
ideation for his work stems from life experience, travel, photography and
the practice of daily drawing. His recent exhibitions in Beijing, Moscow,
and LA suggest that his artistic brand is on the rise.
Like most artists he manages two carriers.
His profession has revolved around the media, entertainment, and information
design industries for over 25 years. He has been a gun-for-hire at companies
such as Microsoft, DreamWorks, Nintendo, RealNetworks, McGraw-Hill, Disney,
Jim Henson Studios, Comedy Central, Scholastic, and many others.
His display of large-scale works at Amazon¹s South Lake Union campus will
include a rare exhibit of The OK Hotel bar mural
Born in 1973, Moksha Marquardt is an American painter and writer from Seattle Washington. His primary influence is nature: its violence and serenity; its texture, form and juxtapositions. He is interested in the consciousness of nature, and our association with it. But most of all, it is the age-old theme of life and death which exists in nearly all of Moksha's work, if ever so faint.
Moksha studied commercial art in Seattle but after graduating in 1994 he chose instead to start a career in the just-blooming world of video games where he worked for the next 17 years as an artist, designer and writer. He left the game industry in 2011 to pursue his own interests..
After painting portraits and the human figure for 22 years I continue to
beintrigued and inspired by the face. I have used just about every medium and
often multi media to achieve the look and emotion I desire. As much as I love a beautiful
face, it is the cultural aspects, the oddities or the raw emotion, obvious or not,
that drives me. It is never the same thing twice.
It has always been my goal to have my work connect with the viewer on an emotional
and aesthetic level. Instead of simply painting a technically good painting, I
would rather draw a person with a mystery through the technique. Paper, wood and
fabric have become just as important as the paint to build the face and reveal
something that lies beneath the surface.
