Jeremy Dower’s psychedelic paintings are out of this world. Every time I look at them I feel like I”m in a far away land where everything is colored rainbow bright and stuffed animals have come to life and rule the world!

I love these simple and poignant drawings by Cameron Stott. I just wish there were more of them!
Timothy Gaewsky’s installations and assemblages are full of pop sensibilities and bold colors.
Michael Eudy has some juicy oil paintings on site. My favorites have to be his figurative and still life works (pictured above and below).
Londoner Tyler Vipond’s work plays mostly with space and depth created out of formerly 2D surfaces. Bridging the space between sculpture and painting, his work leaves you with a feeling of tension and intricacy while still feeling almost effortless. I particularly love his series “A Collapse” whose pieces are almost reminiscent of deconstructed origami.
