Pop Art Show Syndy Zeigenfuss Images.

Last but not least for the Pop Art Show images is Syndy Zeigenfuss. Syndys' work has resonance with me in the use of her color, composition, and texture. Her colors hold a special place for me and remind me of my youth. The reds and ochres are just perfect. At times her work reminds me of Joseph Cornells picture boxes. I am excited to be showing with such a talented group of artists that all have an original point of view.

Here is a short bio from Syndy:

Syndy Zeigenfuss combines multiple materials, found objects and a unique layering process, which adds a depth of emotion that evokes both familiarity and mystery.  Syndy has an intrinsic ability to seamlessly fuse ordinary images and sensibilities into the extraordinary, where the non-essential becomes essential and the abandoned, embraced.

Vintage TV test patterns.

Remember as a child when the television would go to test patterns after midnight? It does not happen like that anymore and so these icons no longer exist except for here.

They make a great graphic icon and the full-colored ones are fantastic. Just reminiscing to simpler times.

Pop Art Show Melody Postma Images.

I will be showing twice in May with Melody. First in this show and then in "Snap, Crackle, Pop!" show with Jeff Schaller. I have been a fan of Melodys work since being introduced to it through Jeff Schaller a few years back.

Melody has a passion for vintage photographs and the emotion that they evoke. She also has a way with layering paint and text which is unmistakable.

You can see more of Melodys' work here and here. You can also follow on twitter.

Pop Art Show John Stango Images.

After being asked to participate in this show I was contacted by John Stango and his wife, Mimi. They had an interest in my work which was reciprocated upon seeing Johns' art. Stangos work combines texture, color, and a familiar era subject matter all wrapped up in pop sensibility.

John hits all of the iconic subjects in his personal style and it really hits home. His work is featured in some of the most prominent collections and his latest project for Absolut Vodka was a homerun!

A blurb about his work which is featured in the Pop Show.

John Stango is an Urban Pop Impressionist painter from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a large cult following throughout the world.  According to one critic, "John Stango made retro cool long before it was retro chic!"

Pop Art Show Jeff Schaller Images.

Jeff and I have worked on art collaborations and studio visits in the past as well as showing together at several galleries. It was only fitting that we be in this show together. Jeff has also known Peter Mars and worked with him on collaborations in the past.

Jeffs' main medium is encaustic but he has the magic touch with whatever medium he decides to use.
His work uses type Here are a few recent images of his work and look out for more information on the upcoming Snap,Crackle, Pop! show featuring Jeff, Melody Postma, and myself.

In his own words:

"I paint in the unique medium of encaustic, creating textural art pieces which incorporate representational form with the printed word. In essence, the visual and written symbols merge to create a unique aesthetic language that is both provocative and whimsical."

You can see more of Jeffs' work here and here.
