100 Days of Art – Day 16: “Window Flags” by Jason Penrod.

August 18, 2012

Jason’s artist statement reads… “I am drawn to the visual drama that unfolds in front of me and ponder subtle meaning in details often overlooked”. In my opinion “Window Flags” is the perfect example of subtle meaning.


100 Days of Art – Day 15: Phoenix by Chris Stubbs.

August 10, 2012

Phoenix is Chris Stubbs’s newest work on Tip Top Gallery. Like all of Chris’s work it has an extraordinary amount of detail and depth. Add his previous two pieces and it makes for a great collection.

100 Days of Art – Day 13: Bath Haus by Colin Walsh.

August 4, 2012

Bath Haus by Colin Walsh is a doodle in the best sense of the word, it draws you in and before you know it you’ve been starring for at it for 10 minutes. Try to find the person standing in a doorway.

A graphic landscape with a color transition from firery orange foreground to cool gray sky, Squaw Creek by Kevin Sisemore is one of my favorite photos on Tip Top Gallery.

100 Days of Art – Day 11: Desert Mouth 03 by Jesse Draxler.

July 6, 2012

Desert Mouth 03 by Jesse Draxler is an amazingly beautiful collage, here’s a quote from Jesse describing his process… “Creating an image is like putting a puzzle together. I am always waiting for the moment when everything clicks and each element is in its place. This can take a very long time or a very short time; the duration of the process is completely irrelevant.”

100 Days of Art – Day 10: Ponce by Jane Kortright.

July 2, 2012

Photographed with a pin-hole camera, Ponce by Jane Kortright, creates an etherial feel that seems to only exists in dreams. I love the contrast of the sharp in-focus tree roots and blurry, flowing dress.

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.

100 Days of Art – Day 8: Snow Queen by Francisca Pageo.

June 27, 2012

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.
