p p p p Taken from Matt's site: Portland, Maine Artists KATE CLEAVES and MATT W. MOORE have come together to create CONVERGENCE – an ultimate collaboration series (Now showing at CORDUROY GALLERY). The five month endeavor to create a completely blended, completely unique series of paintings has lead both Moore and Cleaves down a path neither of them has been down before - resulting in work unlike anything either of them has ever produced. When viewed separately, both artists seem to go about painting in a very different manner: Moore often works with non-objective shapes and geometry, with hard lines and strong brushstrokes, and the occasional area of representation – Cleaves generally works with a narrative and imagery inspired by nature, blended colors, and soft brushstrokes. Both artists share a passion for pattern, sacred geometry and eye-popping color – making the perfect common ground to blend their different techniques together. p p p

Pekka Jylha

p p p ' Pekka Jylha is a versatile sculptor, best known for his monumental work for President Urho Kekkonen in Helsinki. Much of his work consists of a series of sculptures made of unconventional materials and subjects - pigs or rabbits, mechanical or electric devices and candles - that lend a touch of humor to his work. He also utilizes traditional materials and elements from natural phenomena, such as light, water, and fire to explore and defy laws of nature. Yet his works, however voluminous they are, rarely leave a too-heavy impression. ' (via Volta) p p p

Mark T. Stockton

p " I am interested in the act of recognition, how people process and remember iconic images. In my recent series of miniature drawings, I employ recognizable photographs of famous and infamous subjects, allowing viewers to participate in the shared cultural drama that is dispersed by mass media. The enormity of the tabloid presence is contradicted by the inherent preciousness put into rendering these drawings on a minute scale." - Mark T. Stockton (via Artists Space) p p
