George Raftopoulos, Konstrukt

George Raftopoulos’ work is a comment on the human condition. He addresses notions of hope, determination and self-realization. Raftopoulos work is realized in a

‘personal mythology’ inspired by such artists of the past such as Goya, Rembrandt and Titian. In this body of work, he utilizes silhouettes by the artists of the 16-17th Century and embarks on the ‘modernization into the 21st Century’ by impressing his abstract marks upon these silhouettes.

Raftopoulos references the past. The importance of this is akin to recalling personal memory and re-inventing those memories into a visual language. This engagement with the past finds expression through the abstract mark and is loaded with color. His technique explodes the recognizable or ‘known’ as he deconstructs notions of life, in a pursuit to re write his own personal mythologies and belief systems. His gestural

mark making and complex use of color aid in producing a narrative that speaks to themes of power, freedom, hope and belief. Through the work we journey into both the identifiable and the unknown. He calls to question our existence with both veracity, calmness and a contemplation. He asks that we seek personal meaning from each work.

Statement

An exploration of generational healing, each snake is named for women from the artist’s Family Tree. Serpents, a symbol representing transformation and rebirth through the sloughing of skin, surround paintings from Tran’s Heart Map series - works created from a graph of the artist’s heart rate while listening to music that has carried a significance in her life. The two series come together as an altar to women, family, resilience and the restoration of emotional health.

Channeling subjects such as dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space and The Big Bang, Tran explores the shapes of nature, with the infusion of fantastical, pulsing synthetic hues. The psychedelic visuals are harvested from the place where inner-verse meets outer-verse, where optical misfires combine with a vacuum pull moving at the speed of light. Through painting, sculpture and installation, she creates atmospheres that aim to activate.

Public collections of Tran’s work include the City of Seattle's Portable Works Collection, Capital One, Vulcan Inc., Baer Art Center, Camac Art Centre, The El Paso Children’s Hospital, Harborview Medical Center, The King County Public Art Collection and The Child Center. Tran has completed multiple special projects and installations, including work for VH1Save the Music Foundation, The Seattle Art Museum, The Brain Project Toronto, Public Art at The Aqua Art Fair Miami and Vulcan Inc.

She has been awarded multiple fellowships and grants; including a Grant for Artist Projects (GAP) from Artist Trust, Clowes Fellowship for residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the Nellie Cornish Scholarship and residency at The Camac Art Centre in France, The Baer Art Center in Iceland, Jentel, Millay Colony for the Arts and The Center for Contemporary Printmaking. She resides in Seattle, WA.

CONTROL AND COOPERATION WORK STATEMENT

In the series Control and Cooperation , Joelle McTigue examines the rituals of gardening and the creation of public spaces that represent how a community wants to be viewed. The work responds to the history of each public space and how it embodies the power dynamics of practical, leisurely, and spiritual pursuits. Restructuring the landscapes, McTigue transforms close-up snapshots into aerial botanical gardens. Control and Cooperation addresses the constant movement of how perception can change. McTigue lives and works in Montenegro

Statement

An exploration of generational healing, each snake is named for women from the artist’s Family Tree. Serpents, a symbol representing transformation and rebirth through the sloughing of skin, surround paintings from Tran’s Heart Map series - works created from a graph of the artist’s heart rate while listening to music that has carried a significance in her life. The two series come together as an altar to women, family, resilience and the restoration of emotional health.

Channeling subjects such as dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space and The Big Bang, Tran explores the shapes of nature, with the infusion of fantastical, pulsing synthetic hues. The psychedelic visuals are harvested from the place where inner-verse meets outer-verse, where optical misfires combine with a vacuum pull moving at the speed of light. Through painting, sculpture and installation, she creates atmospheres that aim to activate.

Public collections of Tran’s work include the City of Seattle's Portable Works Collection, Capital One, Vulcan Inc., Baer Art Center, Camac Art Centre, The El Paso Children’s Hospital, Harborview Medical Center, The King County Public Art Collection and The Child Center. Tran has completed multiple special projects and installations, including work for VH1Save the Music Foundation, The Seattle Art Museum, The Brain Project Toronto, Public Art at The Aqua Art Fair Miami and Vulcan Inc.

She has been awarded multiple fellowships and grants; including a Grant for Artist Projects (GAP) from Artist Trust, Clowes Fellowship for residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the Nellie Cornish Scholarship and residency at The Camac Art Centre in France, The Baer Art Center in Iceland, Jentel, Millay Colony for the Arts and The Center for Contemporary Printmaking. She resides in Seattle, WA.

The work responds to the history of each public space and how it embodies the power dynamics of practical, leisurely, and spiritual pursuits. Restructuring the landscapes, McTigue transforms close-up snapshots into aerial botanical gardens. Control and Cooperation addresses the constant movement of how perception can change. McTigue lives and works in Montenegro

 George Raftopoulos, Don't Believe the Hype

George Raftopoulos, Don't Believe the Hype

George Raftopoulos’ work is a comment on the human condition. He addresses notions of hope, determination and self-realization. Raftopoulos work is realized in a

‘personal mythology’ inspired by such artists of the past such as Goya, Rembrandt and Titian. In this body of work, he utilizes silhouettes by the artists of the 16-17th Century and embarks on the ‘modernization into the 21st Century’ by impressing his abstract marks upon these silhouettes.

Raftopoulos references the past. The importance of this is akin to recalling personal memory and re-inventing those memories into a visual language. This engagement with the past finds expression through the abstract mark and is loaded with color. His technique explodes the recognizable or ‘known’ as he deconstructs notions of life, in a pursuit to re write his own personal mythologies and belief systems. His gestural

mark making and complex use of color aid in producing a narrative that speaks to themes of power, freedom, hope and belief. Through the work we journey into both the identifiable and the unknown. He calls to question our existence with both veracity, calmness and a contemplation. He asks that we seek personal meaning from each work.

George Raftopoulos,Warrior

George Raftopoulos,Warrior

George Raftopoulos’ work is a comment on the human condition. He addresses notions of hope, determination and self-realization. Raftopoulos work is realized in a

‘personal mythology’ inspired by such artists of the past such as Goya, Rembrandt and Titian. In this body of work, he utilizes silhouettes by the artists of the 16-17th Century and embarks on the ‘modernization into the 21st Century’ by impressing his abstract marks upon these silhouettes.

Raftopoulos references the past. The importance of this is akin to recalling personal memory and re-inventing those memories into a visual language. This engagement with the past finds expression through the abstract mark and is loaded with color. His technique explodes the recognizable or ‘known’ as he deconstructs notions of life, in a pursuit to re write his own personal mythologies and belief systems. His gestural

mark making and complex use of color aid in producing a narrative that speaks to themes of power, freedom, hope and belief. Through the work we journey into both the identifiable and the unknown. He calls to question our existence with both veracity, calmness and a contemplation. He asks that we seek personal meaning from each work.

Liz Tran

Statement

An exploration of generational healing, each snake is named for women from the artist’s Family Tree. Serpents, a symbol representing transformation and rebirth through the sloughing of skin, surround paintings from Tran’s Heart Map series - works created from a graph of the artist’s heart rate while listening to music that has carried a significance in her life. The two series come together as an altar to women, family, resilience and the restoration of emotional health.

Channeling subjects such as dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space and The Big Bang, Tran explores the shapes of nature, with the infusion of fantastical, pulsing synthetic hues. The psychedelic visuals are harvested from the place where inner-verse meets outer-verse, where optical misfires combine with a vacuum pull moving at the speed of light. Through painting, sculpture and installation, she creates atmospheres that aim to activate.

Public collections of Tran’s work include the City of Seattle's Portable Works Collection, Capital One, Vulcan Inc., Baer Art Center, Camac Art Centre, The El Paso Children’s Hospital, Harborview Medical Center, The King County Public Art Collection and The Child Center. Tran has completed multiple special projects and installations, including work for VH1Save the Music Foundation, The Seattle Art Museum, The Brain Project Toronto, Public Art at The Aqua Art Fair Miami and Vulcan Inc.

She has been awarded multiple fellowships and grants; including a Grant for Artist Projects (GAP) from Artist Trust, Clowes Fellowship for residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the Nellie Cornish Scholarship and residency at The Camac Art Centre in France, The Baer Art Center in Iceland, Jentel, Millay Colony for the Arts and The Center for Contemporary Printmaking. She resides in Seattle, WA.

Heart Map

Statement

The Heart Map series is comprised of both paintings and installations based on graphs taken of the artist’s heart rate during various activities. Illustrating the direct connection between our mind and our body, “Heart Map” is an homage to the universal rhythm that begins in our mother’s womb and carries us through life.

Channeling subjects such as dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space and The Big Bang, Tran explores the shapes of nature, with the infusion of fantastical, pulsing synthetic hues. The psychedelic visuals are harvested from the place where inner-verse meets outer-verse, where optical misfires combine with a vacuum pull moving at the speed of light. Through painting, sculpture and installation, she creates atmospheres that aim to activate.

Liz Tran

Heart Map

Statement

The Heart Map series is comprised of both paintings and installations based on graphs taken of the artist’s heart rate during various activities. Illustrating the direct connection between our mind and our body, “Heart Map” is an homage to the universal rhythm that begins in our mother’s womb and carries us through life.

Channeling subjects such as dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space and The Big Bang, Tran explores the shapes of nature, with the infusion of fantastical, pulsing synthetic hues. The psychedelic visuals are harvested from the place where inner-verse meets outer-verse, where optical misfires combine with a vacuum pull moving at the speed of light. Through painting, sculpture and installation, she creates atmospheres that aim to activate.

Public collections of Tran’s work include the City of Seattle's Portable Works Collection, Capital One, Vulcan Inc., Baer Art Center, Camac Art Centre, The El Paso Children’s Hospital, Harborview Medical Center, The King County Public Art Collection and The Child Center. Tran has completed multiple special projects and installations, including work for VH1Save the Music Foundation, The Seattle Art Museum, The Brain Project Toronto, Public Art at The Aqua Art Fair Miami and Vulcan Inc.

She has been awarded multiple fellowships and grants; including a Grant for Artist Projects (GAP) from Artist Trust, Clowes Fellowship for residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the Nellie Cornish Scholarship and residency at The Camac Art Centre in France, The Baer Art Center in Iceland, Jentel, Millay Colony for the Arts and The Center for Contemporary Printmaking. She resides in Seattle, WA.
