Featuring Timothy Karpinski & Brooke Weeber
Opening Reception Thursday November 1st, 7 - 10 pm

This November, despite the rain and grey clouds that will no doubt be covering Portland, Compound Gallery presents a ray of light with the two-person show “The Day We Saw The Sun Come Up.” Our latest monthly installment features new two- and three-dimensional artwork by Brooke Weeber and Timothy Karpinski.

 

As kids, trains and ships are vessels of whimsy and mystery where stories and adventures abound. But as adults, whether we mean to or not, we lose our ability to daydream like we did when we were young. Whimsy and frivolity eventually fall by the wayside as our understanding of the world deepens. Weeber and Karpinski’s work is the epitome of that carefree spirit surviving to adulthood, and thriving. Inspired by their urban Portland surroundings, these artists use both flat and multi-dimensional means to materialize the playful imaginary worlds that their environments conjure. Both have created art that refuses to let the mystery escape a sailboat or the mischievous nature of a cat fade away, all the while appealing to both our childlike and adult sensibilities. 


“The Day We Saw The Sun Come Up” is a show where imaginations can run wild; where a grey afternoon isn’t a detriment to fun, but a reason to allow the dusty whimsical corners of our minds to reawaken.  
Artist


Brooke Weeber is a Portland-based illustrator who brings whimsical, nature-based scenes to life. Her complex pieces combine animals with instruments, ribbons with clouds and always feature her iconic subtle color palate and playful aesthetic. Brooke finds her inspiration from various natural landscapes as well as Greek and Native American culture. She started drawing when she was a young thing, but started focusing on it in high school and later in college. After receiving her BFA in painting from the University of Oregon in 2003, Brooke flew her native Northwest for the big city, where she focused on her other passion - professional baking. She received a degree in Professional Pastry Baking at the French Culinary Institute of New York in 2005 and worked as a high-end cake decorator immediately. Craving more trees and more drawing space, Brooke packed up her apartment and re-rooted herself in Portland in 2009. She's been cranking out pieces ever since and has had shows locally at Mississippi Studios, the Farm, and Tribute Gallery. She's pleased as punch to be on her bike, thinking of pictures and what kind of cake to make for her next friend's birthday.


“From a young age I’ve always been making things. Building forts turned into building skate ramps which lead to building art installations. I love the art making process, from the initial spark of the ‘idea’, the creation to the finished product. Art for me is very personal and everything i make is a direct reflection on my feelings about this world and my struggle and fascination with trying to understand it and find my purpose within it.”
