Matt Degrado Watercolor My art is driven by the need to create and grow as a person, revealing what comes from within me. The process I’ve chosen is intuitive, exploring natural patterns with a wide range of colors and most recently figures. I am simply depicting the breath of life that we have been blessed with, each piece containing a pulse of life.
Michael Jewula Oil Painting For the past several years, Michael Jewula sought ancient wisdom. His search brought him to Mexico, Peru and Brazil, where he studied with shamans and indigenous healers. Because most of his studies were conducted without words, he now relates his revelations with images. Jewula’s creations are striking depictions of animals and mythological worlds. Here one sees apparitions from the beyond: spirits that intermingle with abstract material. His images ply for as deeper meaning – answers to questions regarding the unknown. Though Jewula does not offer answers literally, he offers a glimpse into what the mind may conjure up within a dreamlike space. Both engaging and seductive, Jewula’s highly crafted renderings use a reductive palette to insinuate a kind of alluring unknown. His washy watercolor and acrylic surfaces create beautiful textures that lend his surfaces a handsome materiality.
