Julia Marchand , Rewritten, 14” x 11” acrylic and ink on panel, 2018

Julia Marchand believes the desire to reconcile the simultaneous connection and separation between humanity and nature is ancient, ubiquitous and inescapable. In her work, she references wildlife dioramas, public gardens, and personal experience to explore how that tenuous connection affects our personal and social identity and development. 
 
Marchand studied painting at San Francisco Art Institute, holds a BA in Art History from American University in Washington DC and a Master’s degree in Art Education from Boston University. Her paintings and works on paper have been exhibited at galleries, art fairs and museums including PPOW Gallery and Sloan Fine Art, New York, NY;  C Emerson Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL; Phylogeny Contemporary, Seattle, WA; Perihelion Arts, Phoenix, AZ; Varnish Fine Art, San Francisco, CA; LA Art Fair, Los Angeles, CA; artMRKT San Francisco, CA; Aqua Art Fair, Miami, FL; and Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico. Currently, she lives and works in Alameda, CA.

Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman, Tiger Girl, egg tempera, oil on panel, 17x17, 2017

Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman is a self-taught figurative and contemporary surrealist painter. She uses modified oil and egg tempera techniques of the 14th century Old Masters to create works of magical realism that seem to glow from within. Celebrating the hard-earned wisdom of childhood, Sullivan Beeman depicts subjects who are often young, hauntingly innocent, and teetering on the edge of naïveté and what lies beyond. The narratives, symbology, and illumination in her pieces emerge from someplace subliminal, a conjured realm of magic, mysticism, and mystery. She uses her personal dream journal to inspire her artwork, exploring Jung’s collective unconscious with an overt curiosity for the bizarre and the esoteric, especially alchemy, the tarot, and spirit daemons. 

 
 

Sullivan-Beeman’s work has been shown at Aqua Art Miami, FL; C Emerson Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, FL; Corey Helford Gallery and La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA; Stephen Romano Gallery and Gristle Gallery in Brooklyn, NY; Phylogeny Contemporary, Seattle, WA; Greg Moon Art in Taos, NM; Merlino Galleria d'Arte Contemporanea, Florence, Italy; the Life Is Beautiful Music and Art Festival in Las Vegas, NV; and Art! Vancouver, BC, Canada. She holds a BFA, in Cinema/Television Production, from the University of Southern California, and splits her time between Los Angeles, and Vancouver.

Julia Marchand, untitled, mixed media on paper, 2018

Julia Marchand believes the desire to reconcile the simultaneous connection and separation between humanity and nature is ancient, ubiquitous and inescapable. In her work, she references wildlife dioramas, public gardens, and personal experience to explore how that tenuous connection affects our personal and social identity and development. She studied painting at San Francisco Art Institute, holds a BA in Art History from American University in Washington DC and a Master’s degree in Art Education from Boston University. Her paintings and works on paper have been exhibited in galleries in London, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Mexico City. Currently, she lives and works in Alameda, CA.

Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman

Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman

Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman is a self-taught figurative and contemporary surrealist painter. She uses modified oil and egg tempera techniques of the 14th century Old Masters to create works of magical realism that seem to glow from within. Celebrating the hard-earned wisdom of childhood, Sullivan Beeman depicts subjects who are often young, hauntingly innocent, and teetering on the edge of naïveté and what lies beyond. The narratives, symbology, and illumination in her pieces emerge from someplace subliminal, a conjured realm of magic, mysticism, and mystery. She uses her personal dream journal to inspire her artwork, exploring Jung’s collective unconscious with an overt curiosity for the bizarre and the esoteric, especially alchemy, the tarot, and spirit daemons. 

 
 

Sullivan-Beeman’s work has been shown at Aqua Art Miami, FL; C Emerson Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, FL; Corey Helford Gallery and La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA; Stephen Romano Gallery and Gristle Gallery in Brooklyn, NY; Phylogeny Contemporary, Seattle, WA; Greg Moon Art in Taos, NM; Merlino Galleria d'Arte Contemporanea, Florence, Italy; the Life Is Beautiful Music and Art Festival in Las Vegas, NV; and Art! Vancouver, BC, Canada. She holds a BFA, in Cinema/Television Production, from the University of Southern California, and splits her time between Los Angeles, and Vancouver.

Julia Marchand, After the Flood, mixed media on wood panel, 12" x 12" x 2", 2017

Julia Marchand believes the desire to reconcile the simultaneous connection and separation between humanity and nature is ancient, ubiquitous and inescapable. In her work, she references wildlife dioramas, public gardens, and personal experience to explore how that tenuous connection affects our personal and social identity and development. She studied painting at San Francisco Art Institute, holds a BA in Art History from American University in Washington DC and a Master’s degree in Art Education from Boston University. Her paintings and works on paper have been exhibited in galleries in London, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Mexico City. Currently, she lives and works in Alameda, CA.

Jared Boechler, "No Strife", oil on linen, 14" x18", 2017

The solo exhibition “On a Tipped Chair” marks the debut introduction of Boechler’s olfactory body of work. It is the first time that both the included oil paintings and their companion scents are being presented to the public as a collection. Using traditional methods in contemporary context, “On a Tipped Chair” explores the relationship of two-dimensional art and scent influence on the individual. The work within the exhibit confronts the exploration of mental illness and loneliness, emphasizing the importance and perhaps even formative roles these experiences have in our lives. Boechler's practice is heavily influenced by scent. “On a Tipped Chair” encompasses Boechler's most recent body of work and pairs custom-designed scents alongside the original oil paintings they inspired. The work is the result of an experimental process that allowed the artist to be guided by scent exposure. The scents within the exhibit represent direct experiences of the artist. They contain smells from memories that have directly influenced the outcome of the individual works, ranging from notes of lemongrass to black tar, providing insight into the most personal aspects of Boechler’s practice. The exhibit titled “On a Tipped Chair” references the artist’s personal relationship with anxiety and uses the experience of sitting on an unbalanced chair to draw an unusual comparison between these states of unrest. The works within the exhibit explore the process of living and creating on this precipice and present a question that many artists find themselves having to consider on a daily basis: How do I maintain the balance necessary to productively pursue a craft that is inherently free and unrestricted in nature? The exhibit has been produced in collaboration with the House of Cherry Bomb Perfumery, based out of Brooklyn, New York, who have exclusively crafted the custom designed scents that accompany the works.

Jared Boechler, To Lead a Lavender Life, oil on raw canvas, 36" x 48", 2017.

The scent relates to dead-of-winter, past midnight experiences, when it’s so cold and unforgiving that sound and smell seem suspended in the air. These environments present intense opportunities for loneliness too. Scent has always been intensified to me in the coldest months, and these periods have very likely played a big part in how I connect scent to visuals. I’ve had a quote that I’ve carried with me throughout adolescence, one that somehow makes sense within the context of my life that I can’t properly pin down or define, “I lead a lavender life”. I’ve used it as a kind of intention in how I try to experience the world, as an individual who, like many people, are often alone. I feel an affinity with the concept of frozen or cold lavender. I physically work with lavender oil regularly and the traits it takes on in the coldest nights is something special. I think scorched honey and bee pollen provide a really great antithesis to these notes. When I speak of tea dust, I refer to the experience of opening a high-end loose-leaf tea canister, when your nose catches the particles that fly off of the lid. I experienced this recently with a tea at a hotel in Stockholm, and the moment has stuck. I’ve always thought of tea as such a strange, alien product . I Imagine it to be the result of some surreal diorama, comprised of tiny dried and dying components, a display of natures capacity on a humble scale.

Suprematism, Constructivism, Futurism: Friction, Destruction, Invention, Vision. 

Gallery Tour of Group Exhibition Fall 2017

Jelena Gagic ,Dillon Lemon, Jason Lake, Princess Simpson Rashid, Shyun Song, Julia Tatiyatrairong, Lesley Wamsley,  Qin Zhang

Suprematism, Constructivism, Futurism: Friction, Destruction, Invention, Vision. 

Suprematism, Constructivism, Futurism: Friction, Destruction, Invention, Vision. 

Art, as reflected through the lens of Suprematism was an innovative approach to making objects, one concerned with breaking entirely from the traditional artistic concern with composition, and replaced it with careful technical analysis of modern materials. 
  
The Futurists focus was to explore problems of representing current experience and strived to have their paintings evoke all kinds of sensations - and not merely those visible. 
  
"Suprematism, Constructivism, Futurism: Friction, Destruction, Invention, Vision" is the inaugural group themed exhibition for Phylogeny Contemporary's permanent Seattle gallery home.  

The selected artists :Jelena Gagic ,Dillon Lemon, Jason Lake, Princess Simpson Rashid, Shyun Song, Julia Tatiyatrairong, Lesley Wamsley,  Qin Zhang were chosen each for their specific and careful response to the vague and historical query. Several artists’ responses were perfect representations of the period of art history. Others took the challenge to continue the movement to current societal viewpoints of obsolescence and identity. 
  
Art created for the purpose social inquiry can communicate and confuse. The perspective is all within the viewer. The answer may even be written neatly next to the work of art to describe the very intention of the work of art. Individual response will be personal. Phylogeny in its definition is the evolution of a concept or idea. 
  
Art all chiefly requires the participation of the beholder for full potency. 
  
Please join us throughout this exhibition for a series of events culminating in an on-site Philanthropic Incubator Laboratory. 
 
Opening Wednesday, September 6, 5-8 PM
Exhibition Runs through October 28, 2017
  
P.I.L.  September 22 & October 20th 5-7PM

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: SHYUN SONG

Born and educated in Korea, I moved to the United States in 1989. I hold a B.A. and M.A. in Education from Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea. My work experience includes 15 years as a banker in Korea and 3 years teaching in Los Angeles.

After moving to New York in 2000, I studied at the Art Students League of New York with William Scharf. I am currently painting full-time at my home studio.

It took me several decades to return to my first love: art. In grade school, I was a self-motivated young artist. During my adolescent years, however, the scope of my curiosity about life widened and art seemed too narrow a path for me. In college, the motto of my major, self-realization, inspired me and became an enduring theme in my life. While I was writing a critical analysis on children’s literature for my Master's degree in Education, I was convinced of the fullness of the human potential.

I enjoyed my banking career for its constantly challenging situations that demanded me to develop the wide spectrum of my potential. Teaching, however, was not for me, although it was rewarding. When I began drawing at the League, I found myself feeling immediately at home. Resuming art meant a homecoming after a long excursion. Art satisfies me fully, since it demands all of my being and that of the viewer, too. I believe that a total rapport through art can expand our souls.

My work has been exhibited at The Katonah Museum of Art in New York, Porch Gallery Ojai in California, The Hyde Bridge Gallery at The Yeats Society in Sligo, Ireland, Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Maryland, and more recently at ARC Gallery in Chicago.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My journey in art, as with our journey in life, is an evolving process which follows its due course. After the phases of representational figure painting and minimal colorfield naturescapes, I am now in the current state of conceptual painting which depicts the inner realms — spiritual and existential. Whereas the general definition of conceptual art emphasizes the idea of a work over the aesthetic in itself, I believe that a conceptual work can be equally significant in terms of both the visual and theoretical aspects.

Painting is not merely an aesthetic endeavor for me, but also an existential one.

Life has always been the most intriguing subject to me. I see it as a giant sphere which coalesces with the myriad facets of the shared human experience. I aim to express how I perceive such facets on canvas.

I begin my delineation with a subject, which usually becomes the title of the painting. The delineation is succinct in order to capture the essence of the subject. I let my intuition dictate a geometric composition by applying my own symbolic logic.

The lines, shapes, angles, and placements are formed and the color scheme follows.

While executing it on canvas, I find myself instinctively improvising along the way to achieve its aesthetic value.

Art satisfies me fully as it demands all of my being, as well as that of the viewer.

I believe that a total rapport through art can expand our souls.

Suzy O'Mullane

Biography

Suzy O’ Mullane is a visual artist who has been practicing and exhibiting consistently in Dublin, London, NY, Berlin and LA since 1996. Throughout her practice, she has developed and employs multiple encoded forms that have become personal allegorical references. Her work conceptualises emotional experience, personal and societal identity, and memory through the mediums of painting, drawing, video, performance and writings. 

O’ Mullane’s work conceptualises emotional experience and memory, relating to a particular identity, place, memory, or personal connections. Formally, her paintings and drawings are executed in oil and charcoal on canvas or paper. Scale oscillates between very large (maximum 7ft x 10ft) and small/intimate. Her video, collaborative and performance work supports and intersects with the 2D work, and relies on written narrative and layers of associated imagery. 

 

O’ Mullane was educated at UCC (BA English) and Crawford College of Art and Design (BA Fine Art (Hons) and Post-Grad. She is co-founder and former director for 6 years of ArtTrail Cork, Cork. Notably, her work has been presented at Context NYC, Art Miami, Art Toronto, Art Chicago, Art Wynwood, Art Palm Beach, Aqua Miami as well as in many solo exhibitions. She has held solo exhibitions at Skotia Gallery, LA, Crawford Municipal Gallery, Cork, Triskel Arts Centre, Cork, Solstice Arts Centre, Navan, Ireland, Siamsa Tire Arts Centre, Tralee, Blueleaf Gallery, Dublin, and Origin Gallery, Dublin. Her work is represented in many public and private collections in the US and Europe, including Crawford Municipal Gallery, TCD, UCD, UCC, and OPW. 

Recent, current and forthcoming projects since 2016: Irish Wave: The Birth of a Nation, Identity, Struggle, group exhibitions (by invitation), Beijing and Shanghai, March - April 2016, The Seduction of Cathleen Ni Houlihan, solo exhibition, The Origin Gallery, from April 28, 2016, Context Art Fair, 3 - 8 May 2016, The Wounded Deer (invited artist) Melbourne, September 2017.

It's Plain for All to See

It's Plain for All to See

Be Still is a series of new works on paper and canvas executed in France and in Ireland. These works form a loose narrative reflecting ideas about the human condition: how we feel about our-selves, how we communicate, our needs and desires, how we place ourselves in society, how we are affected by fate and free will. The eyes reveal the secrets to the soul. We can communicate an entire universe of power and intent through silence, how the heart gets broken and how it heals, how the world propels onwards continuously, how we connect and disconnect. We are capable of great beauty and innocence, but also of cataclysmic destruction. 

These paintings communicate our experience, through gesture and gaze, mainly using human and animal depiction. They highlight our innocence and our desires. At a time of mass communication, external noise, seething masses, sometimes it is enough just to be still.

His intimate “Mother and Child” moving still (2013), inspired Kurt Stallaert to work further on the idea of healing, baptism and rejuvenation as he created an impressive eleven hour during moving still wherein different naked bodies, men and women, one by one, almost ritually come out of the water. Their sins and souls are washed, their bodies cleansed and purified as they slowly disappear off screen. Circles of life, reflecting on the water. An infinite human chain of creation and recreation. A new start. Back to nature.
