SHOWS The Doodling ShowDoze Green translates complex metaphysical concepts through his paintings, such as the possible manipulation of energy and matter to create a timeless space. He explores meditations on matter and anti-matter, layers of consciousness, and different possibilities based on cosmology. Through stream-of-consciousness painting, Doze Green creates fractured imagery to convey infinite possibilities. His intention is to reveal works with an ever-changing narrative.

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
