100 Days of Art – Day 9: Refugees by Two Headed Beast.

June 29, 2012

Two Headed Beast is a collaboration of husband and wife team Chris and Mirna Stubbs.

When collaborating, Mirna and Chris try playing to each others strengths. Chris is very methodical and thrives in spending time on fine detail and concept. Mirna is more naive in her approach, creating through spontaneity and efficiency. Though their methods and disciplines are quite different, what motivates them to create twogether is their shared passion for using art as a way of telling stories, their wanting to express a shared idea through their collective skill sets, and their appreciation for each other.

Francisca Pageo’s work focuses on human psychology–people, pulsions, intuition, dreams, cotidianity and nature are all recurring themes. Of all her work on Tip Top, I think Snow Queen is my favorite. What’s yours?

100 Days of Art – Day 7: EFPTOZ by Jason Penrod.

June 22, 2012

EFPTOZ by Jason Penrod is pure americana, from the sturdy wooden door to the hanging, starched, doctor’s coats, each item seems to be dripping with tradition. I’ve always wondered what’s happening behind that door.

Here is a little more about Chris…

ARTIST STATEMENT: Growing up an only child with two working parents, I often had to entertain myself. Making art was always a means of escape, transcending me into a parallel universe of limitless possibility. Along the path of finding myself as an artist, the process of juxtaposition and collage really spoke to me. Mixing genre, media, techniques and technologies with no concern for rules allows me to try and understand the world by rearranging pieces of it. Taking subject matter from its familiar surroundings and reassembling it allows observers a surreal interpretation of a shared idea. The outcome can be both disturbing and delightful. My creations are just as much about self-discovery as they are amusement for the masses.
