P.J. FIDLER – "The Permutation Generator"

PJ Fidler's "The Permutation Generator" reflects the concept of metamorphism – sacrificing what you are to become something else. The paintings focus on life, love, sex and death and how each of these experiences transforms each one of us. Deeply influenced by his childhood surroundings in a small farm community in Central California, his art is an unfolding of nonlinear narratives.  Commonly comprised of animal imagery, landscapes and religious iconography, Fidler's work reflects his love of Flemish paintings, vintage children's books, and contemporary graphic design using mixed media on wood and canvas. The results, with their mixture of adolescent archetypes and the dark psychological aspects of the human condition, are often surreal, ambiguous, and yet very much familiar. Fidler studied illustration at the Pasadena Art Center College of Design and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. www.pjfidler.com

 

"P.J. Fidler's pieces are exercises in exuberance.  The macabre and the merry co-exist in a frenzy of color.  Such a treat." -- Pam Grossman, www.phantasmaphile.com

 

 

JASON HOUCHEN – "Fallen Trees Spread No Seeds"

Through his wood burnings, sculptures, mixed media and paintings, Jason Houchen fuses his Midwestern roots with his love of classical folk art, street art and pop surrealism. Spirits and spirituality, antiquity and memories freely flow from his extremely detailed works. "Fallen Trees Spread No Seeds" has a "how the west was stolen" theme, created with wood, a soldering iron, vintage cigar bands and stained glass. Describing himself as an "urban folk artist," Houchen's art is collected by artists and art dealers and can be found in the private collections of Liz McGrath, SHAG, Glenn Barr, Miles Thompson, Greg Escalante, Jan Corey Helford, Billy Shire and Annie Adjchavanich. Houchen received his BFA from the University of Missouri and is currently working on his masters and teaching in Illinois. www.jasonhouchen.com
