ART FOR AMNESTY

“PROTECTING HUMAN RIGHTS THROUGH THE ARTS”

“The arts have a unique power to bring people together and to promote change – and Amnesty International harnesses the power and creativity of art to advance human rights.

Artists have always been a special part of our work. They are the visionaries, the storytellers, the ones willing to shine a light on injustice using art and using the power of their platforms. Artists raise awareness about important human rights issues, bring new activists to our movement, inspire people whose human rights have been violated, and galvanize our supporters.

Amnesty International has a long and rich history of partnering with artists on a wide range of successful cases and campaigns. Today, the newest chapter of that history is being written with Art for Amnesty, our groundbreaking program that uses arts to help protect human rights.”

Phylogeny Contemporary would like to support Amnesty through our Phylogeny Philanthropy Projects this winter, The Art of The Gift 2018 will begin a our dedication to join Amnesty in becoming a force for human rights.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work comes from my natural tendency to be resourceful. I gravitate toward material limitations, and enjoy the challenge of re-assembling media from existing works. This system of re-authoring allows me opportunities to compose and reassign new meaning to familiar objects that have collective associations.

In using this process I can explore and playfully expand on ideas relating to cultural, social and ecological issues that we are currently faced with.

The projects that manifest from these ideas are media-fluid and usually take the form of sculpture, digital media or performance/interventions. Regardless of medium, I see my works as abstract narratives, romantic gestures and even absurd solutions, to be examined, explored and questioned.

​ARTIST STATEMENT

My art is always intended as a poetical ephemeral visionary navigation of my senses, using colors to express the conducive energy of the characters and Creatures from my visual experiences deconstructing the esthetic form. The fluid properties of the paint reveals to me a glimpse of a shape, a form that I can capture and let arise with my creative unintentional painterly/carving compositions.

I explore the life and influences of my characters, and their dialogues in an almost not gravitational environment, bringing forward an eclectic perception as inner medium.

Maddie Amelia Lewis, The High Priestess,Watercolor and metallic watercolor on mixed media paper, 6"x8", 2018.


The High Priestess symbolizes sacred knowledge, intuition, and the subconscious mind. The best doctors use their intuition to help them find a cure, follow a new treatment plan, or guide their known facts towards the right answer. The sacred knowledge could refer to the Hippocratic Oath, and the knowledge of the human body. There is naught more sacred than our vessel on this earth. I also believe the subconscious mind is what makes a difference in battling more serious illnesses for patients: the burning desire to live and love.


Madisen Amelia Lewis is a queer artist driven by passion and her empathetic nature. She graduated with a double B.A. in Art & Psychology at UC Santa Cruz in 2015. She lives in Seattle, WA with her cat, surrounded by piles of books and art supplies. She is currently pursuing a Masters in Teaching.

Her work, in general, falls within the new contemporary art movement of lowbrow pop-surrealism. Her surrealist landscape paintings are influenced by wanderlust and a lifelong obsession with fantasy worlds. She is inspired by putting herself in natural parks, florals, cloudscapes, and the freedom of flight. Her abstract paintings draw from the anxieties of life, her attraction to the abyss, and a meditative state during painting.

She is currently an emerging artist, and has shown in local venues and festivals while perfecting her craft. Her work is in a state of transformative exploration.

Maddie Lewis, the Star

Maddie Lewis, the Star

I chose The Star because it symbolizes inspiration, hope, faith, and renewal. Doctors provide all of these things to their patients, and the process of healing is often a process of renewal for many patients. For those with chronic pain and illness, like myself, the inspiration to keep looking for new things in life is what keeps us going. The hope that we will find more in life, despite these things, is what helps all patients keep their will alive.

Kelly Lyles, The Heiroplant

Kelly Lyles, The Heiroplant

Kelly Lyles

Kelly Lyles was born in the USA, but the family immediately moved abroad where they lived for 12 years : Switzerland, England, Denmark and Japan, coming to the United States in 1968. This International schooling provided the gift of adaptation and she continues to travel for pleasure and business, having led art delegations to China, Eastern Europe, Cuba and next (hopefully, in February 2019) will be South Africa. There’s often an element of humour to her work, especially in these trying times the world needs laughter. Traveling the world Kelly found that to be universal.... 
Her paintings, studio, home & Artcars - the ultimate in public art, driving a decorated vehicle daily- have been featured in numerous television shows, magazines, newspaper articles, multiple books and in several documentary films. 

Life is a lot of fun, and I like the viewers to share that in my work. After years as a designer/illustrator, I’ve focused on fine art since 1996. I’ve a number of different ‘styles’ and media, but all are based on representational art steeped in years of classical training. 
             There’s often an element of humour to my work. Especially in these trying times we need laughter, and living all over the world I've found it to be universal. I consider my entire life to be art, my clothing (a rather flamboyant fashion sense which stands out in the landscape of Goretex NW), my decorated vehicles- that’s the REAL meaning of public art, driving one’s sculptural assemblage everywhere for the public to see outside of the gallery system.

David Nicolato, Ace of Tentacles, ink on paper, 11"x14", 2018

DAVID NICOLATO

David’s art is commentary on animal cruelty. With his most recent body of work, he focuses more specifically on the circus and carnival environments, where he depicts his subjects in tortured but content narratives. They suffer mental rather than physical abuse. They are unaware of their predicament and are simply performing their acts as trained.

He is also developing a new collection of paintings, drawings and assemblages that complement this body of work. Using bolder color palettes and more elements of street art and graffiti, these works are influenced by the Jersey City street art scene and its highly visible public murals.

The animals and flowers depicted in these newer works are paired with abstracted text and numbers, printed ink imagery and beautifully rendered graphite drawings. Some are a combination of mixed media with cut paper and stitching. These elements are suggesting the pain and experimentation that many animals endure in the scientific and entertainment industries. And bringing attention to these atrocities in an irreverent and more colorful manner better connects them to his new “home.”

In the drawings, animals are rendered anatomically accurate so the viewer feels as if this is actually happening. They are live spectators at this surreal circus.

In his cut paper and collage work, there is a cuter Kawaii aesthetic, a juxtaposition, while matching the darkness and pain in the drawings. The brighter colored paper suggests joy and whimsy and the stitches and buttons, a beloved stuffed animal from childhood, only not as cuddly.

Exposed skeletons, prosthetic tentacles or legs, flowers growing from the skull, all show a disturbing, irreverent take on these atrocities. It is simultaneous death and rebirth.

The animal entertainment industry has made us complacent regarding the value of these magnificent creatures and that this is not their true purpose. We only see the bright side, but the darkness lies beneath.

It is his hope that these works will increase awareness and provide a better perspective.

DAVID NICOLATO

David has been making and exhibiting his art for over 25 years. As a graduate of Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, he began his art career in 1996, with small group shows and fashion inspired events.

During the late 1990’s and early 2000’s he achieved local success with municipal arts societies and smaller venues.

In 2011 and 2012, he achieved two solo shows, “le Cirque Dystopique” and “Carnevale Meccanica,” at the Hotel Tides Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ. Both exhibits featured drawings, paintings and mixed media compositions that focused on child development and the darker side of dreams. In them, he used the image of the popsicle to represent the mutable identity of a child. Both shows where quite successful for both exposure and collectability. David was now becoming a known artist in the Asbury community.

In 2013, David was featured at the Gallery at the Rotunda, Metuchen, NJ, where he presented a body of work that spoke to the oddness and beauty of spiders and marine animals. Their strange resemblance to extraterrestrial life forms, was fascinating to him. With “Lo Estraneo e il Polpi,” his direction took a huge turn. Animals were now the principal subject matter and how they were seen and treated was of great concern. This would now be the central focus and message of his art.

In 2016 he began teaching at The OLC School in Jersey City.

As a result, his work has been greatly influenced by the many public murals and abundance of Street Art in this exquisite city.

David is now an emerging artist in Jersey City and is involved in many group shows, annual arts festivals and commissioned murals.

DAVID NICOLATO

David’s art is commentary on animal cruelty. With his most recent body of work, he focuses more specifically on the circus and carnival environments, where he depicts his subjects in tortured but content narratives. They suffer mental rather than physical abuse. They are unaware of their predicament and are simply performing their acts as trained.

He is also developing a new collection of paintings, drawings and assemblages that complement this body of work. Using bolder color palettes and more elements of street art and graffiti, these works are influenced by the Jersey City street art scene and its highly visible public murals.

The animals and flowers depicted in these newer works are paired with abstracted text and numbers, printed ink imagery and beautifully rendered graphite drawings. Some are a combination of mixed media with cut paper and stitching. These elements are suggesting the pain and experimentation that many animals endure in the scientific and entertainment industries. And bringing attention to these atrocities in an irreverent and more colorful manner better connects them to his new “home.”

In the drawings, animals are rendered anatomically accurate so the viewer feels as if this is actually happening. They are live spectators at this surreal circus.

In his cut paper and collage work, there is a cuter Kawaii aesthetic, a juxtaposition, while matching the darkness and pain in the drawings. The brighter colored paper suggests joy and whimsy and the stitches and buttons, a beloved stuffed animal from childhood, only not as cuddly.

Exposed skeletons, prosthetic tentacles or legs, flowers growing from the skull, all show a disturbing, irreverent take on these atrocities. It is simultaneous death and rebirth.

The animal entertainment industry has made us complacent regarding the value of these magnificent creatures and that this is not their true purpose. We only see the bright side, but the darkness lies beneath.

It is his hope that these works will increase awareness and provide a better perspective.

DAVID NICOLATO

David has been making and exhibiting his art for over 25 years. As a graduate of Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, he began his art career in 1996, with small group shows and fashion inspired events.

During the late 1990’s and early 2000’s he achieved local success with municipal arts societies and smaller venues.

In 2011 and 2012, he achieved two solo shows, “le Cirque Dystopique” and “Carnevale Meccanica,” at the Hotel Tides Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ. Both exhibits featured drawings, paintings and mixed media compositions that focused on child development and the darker side of dreams. In them, he used the image of the popsicle to represent the mutable identity of a child. Both shows where quite successful for both exposure and collectability. David was now becoming a known artist in the Asbury community.

In 2013, David was featured at the Gallery at the Rotunda, Metuchen, NJ, where he presented a body of work that spoke to the oddness and beauty of spiders and marine animals. Their strange resemblance to extraterrestrial life forms, was fascinating to him. With “Lo Estraneo e il Polpi,” his direction took a huge turn. Animals were now the principal subject matter and how they were seen and treated was of great concern. This would now be the central focus and message of his art.

In 2016 he began teaching at The OLC School in Jersey City.

As a result, his work has been greatly influenced by the many public murals and abundance of Street Art in this exquisite city.

David is now an emerging artist in Jersey City and is involved in many group shows, annual arts festivals and commissioned murals.

Liz Tran

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.

Julia Tatiyatrairong, The Star, acrylic paint on knitted rope, 5"x7", 2018

Julia Tatiyatrairong, The Star, acrylic paint on knitted rope, 5"x7", 2018

Bio/ Artist Statement

Julia Tatiyatrairong is best known for her textural knitted works made of unconventional materials. Her use of knitting, crochet and basket weaving in her work is deeply personal in exploring her identity and femininity in modern times. She studied visual art at Brown University and currently resides in Seattle, WA.

‘The Star’ and ‘The Tower’ are new works inspired by the 2 corresponding tarot cards. In tarotology, when these 2 cards are seen next to each other it can mean, for whom it concerns, that they have to ask for help and allow someone to help them and that they need to stop believing that they are always on their own. This reading, among others, in the use of tarot cards is an interesting way for people to reflect on themselves and the world.

Malayka Gormally, The Magician

Malayka Gormally, The Magician

The New Magician plays on the symbolism of the Magician Tarot card, the first card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck.

In the traditional Tarot card, the male magician points towards the universe with one hand and toward the earth with the other hand, connecting the two realms to convert energy into action.

In my painting, the female protestor converts energy into action as she raises her protest sign and points to the ground. This woman was a participant in the “We Support Our Muslim Neighbors” demonstration in June 2017, which was held in opposition to a far-right anti-Muslim rally at Seattle City Hall Plaza.

In the background are two more resistance protestors, the man wears a Guy Fawkes mask which has been adopted by Anarchists. The woman in the red steampunk goggles is a member of the Antifa (anti-fascist) movement.

This painting is part of a series I'm creating that focuses on the protesters I encounter while participating in demonstrations; I was in the thick of the crowd of the “We Support Our Muslim Neighbors” demonstration.


Bio:


Malayka Gormally’s paintings are in over one hundred collections nationwide, including the collections of Safeco Insurance, the City of Kent, and the City of Seattle Portable Works Collection. Her portrait clients include former board members at the Seattle Art Museum, the Henry Gallery, and the Palm Springs Art Museum. Her paintings have exhibited in the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest, and one of her portraits was shortlisted for the UK Royal Society of Portrait Painters 2014 annual exhibition. Malayka was awarded a 2017 Art Projects Grant by 4Culture to create portraits of immigrant and refugee women in King County, Washington.

If you have the energies of the rat spirit animal, you are a survivor. The rat symbolism in you allows you to work hard to have everything you need, and fight for your right to have it.

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

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.

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, 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, 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.

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.
