SHOWS End of the WorldAndie Mazorol and Tynan Kerr are collaborative painters based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, who began working together years ago while sharing studio space. Their paintings utilize a collage approach, creating flat landscapes populated by figures with exaggerated characteristics and shifting identities. In their work, bodies stand as shells of recognizable figures or they vanish within a patterned facade, creating environments unimaginable to either author individually.

SHOWS The Doodling Show,End of the WorldGala Bent is a drawing-centric painter, working most often on paper, but also on walls in site-specific spaces and in animation. In her gouache-colored drawings, one thing becomes another, and borders are uncertain. The result is a fertile, cataclysmic landscape where constructed elements and organic patterns of flow both collide and mesh, often angling toward abstraction. Her most recent series, O Mountain, takes the singular form of a mountain as its focus. These forms become sentient characters, heaving their masses into sighs and tears. Gala was born near Detroit, raised in Northern Indiana, schooled in Buffalo, and now lives in Seattle with her husband, fellow artist Zack Bent, and three young sons. Upcoming exhibitions include G.Gibson Gallery (Seattle) and Ampersand International (San Francisco). Gala was selected to be a Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking resident this October at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Oregon. See and read more at www.ggibsongallery.com
SHOWS End of the WorldJacob Markrof is late-night, sub-level, lurk-fanatic who lives for strange situations. Portland based, Jacob draws most of his influences from the rainy season, where he can pour over books on alchemy, mysticism, ancient cultures, medieval history, cults, conspiracy theory, and Magik. Through his oil paintings he combines his knowledge of these categories into regal medieval-era portraits. Jacob studied traditional animation at the School of Visual Arts in New York and graduated in 2004. It wasn't until the fall of 2010 that he found his passion for oil paintings. Self taught he creates his own form of alchemy by changing canvas, wood, and paint into portals to different dimensions.

SHOWS End of the WorldPat Perry is an artist and illustrator who calls Michigan home. The lands of the north, the people he meets, and ordinary Midwestern streets have always moved him. Making drawings each day is his attempt to digest the indegistable; seemingly indescribable life experience, and the ephemeral acquaintances and scenery that is carried along with such encounters, situations and chapters. In between showing his art or working on an assortmant of creative projects, Pat travels quite frequently. Although he is happy to be able to speak and have an audience through his artwork, he does his best everyday to listen and learn from the world he lives in.
