“Jeffry Mitchell was born in Seattle. He received his MFA at the Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia. For over twenty-five years Mitchell has produced idiosyncratic sculptures, drawings, and prints. His oeuvre seamlessly combines high and low references that span religion, sex, nature, fine art, and folk and decorative arts traditions. Mitchell was the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant in 2009. In 2012, The Henry Art Gallery in Seattle held, Like a Valentine: The Art of Jeffry Mitchell, a career spanning retrospective. Other recent exhibitions include Kurt at the Seattle Art Museum, Washington; Dirt on Delight at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; and the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards at the Portland Art Museum, Oregon. His work can be found in numerous private and public collections including the Seattle Art Museum, Philadelphia Art Museum, Fogg Art Museum, and the Portland Art Museum.”

” All of my self-portraits are made standing in front of the mirror. I am not opposed to using photographs to help me see more. They are wonderful tools, but I find my visual curiosity constantly engaged in the mirror and more often than not, shut down by the photograph. Working from photographs feels like copying the work of the camera. If I can manage to engage my eyes enough to draw from photos, I end up with a drawing of a photograph, not a drawing of the subject and I usually find the image flat and boring. For me, drawing is a discipline of the eyes; it is about seeing things honestly and feeling the brain’s influence over the eye’s accuracy.” – Ian Ingram
‘Apex Predator‘ by Dominic Young and Mariana Fantich of UK based studio Fantich & Young. ‘Fantich & Young’s body of work entails a conceptual and aesthetical approach to the sculptural juxtaposition of symbolic ready-made materials. Their work addresses parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world: Nature as model or nature as threat. Fantich & Young create art that subverts Darwin’s theory of evolution and natural selection with elements of supernatural ceremonial ritual. The concepts of nature and super-nature are explored in the work. Fantich & Young view this process as Darwinian Voodoo.’
