“Yeti or Not”

“Thar’ be Pirates in these Parts”

I couldn’t be more excited about this weekend. For years I have been listening to all of your wonderful stories and memories you’ve built with your loved one’s around the parks. Whether we are riding the fog-filled waters of Pirates or the cool air on the Matterhorn, we all have our favorites throughout our lifetime.

For years I carried with me two dreams: One was to bring our common stories and the love for the parks to life through my art. Second, was to see my characters of The Kid in Me™ brought to life in the settings of these rides. These dreams are becoming a reality this weekend! The motivation behind these pieces began with the memories I had with my sister. We would be spending our Summer vacations at the park daily. As the park would start to close there was always the mad dash to go on these favorite rides as many times as we could. There was nothing better than getting the entire ride vehicle to ourselves. Memories I will never forget.

We all have our favorite rides. We all have built incredible memories in these amazing parks. Our homes are personal museums that tell our story and display our memories. My hope is that these paintings will become a part of your story and be constant reminder of the beautiful memories you built with family and friends.

I’m so grateful and honored to announce the The Kid in Me, Parks Edition.

“A picture is worth a thousand words, but the memories are priceless!”

I’m looking forward to seeing you this weekend.

Out and About in LA Launch LA Presents “Point of View” A Group Exhibition

Launch LA is proud to present Point of View, a group exhibition featuring Katrin Assmann, Ryan Molenkamp, Sandy Rodriguez, and Edward Walton Wilcox. Point of View examines the perennial genre of landscape as each artist presents a contemporary interpretation to both urban and natural settings.

May 27 – June 17, 2017


OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, May 27th, 7 – 10pm

RSVP Essential to:


Ryan Molenkamp, “Sound Cascade 17″, Acrylic on panel, 20 x 30” 

Ryan Molenkamp’s work is rooted in the landscape of the Northwest. Almost structural in his approach, Molenkamp’s paintings resemble graphic illustrations, or tiled mosaics of paint. These complex surfaces study the formal properties of line and color that build up the natural landscape. The propensity to build structures on top the desert’s natural beauty, and the corresponding shift in our perception of these landscapes, is also an important theme that permeates Molenkamp’s work.

Ryan Molenkamp is an artist from Seattle.  His subject matter is largely informed by his interest in landscape, geology, and development.  Molenkamp earned a BFA from Western Washington University and has exhibited in the Seattle area. He has also exhibited in New York and Portland. Molenkamp was awarded a residency at Jentel in 2012 and has had artwork and writing published in Art Ltd. Magazine, Seattle Magazine, and City Arts Magazine. 

Katrin Assmann, “California Mansion”, Oil on canvas

Katrin Assmann’s misty landscapes and organic, subdued palette reflect a uniquely Californian atmosphere. The softly blended layers of paint create a visual effect reminiscent of old Polaroids and materialize the fleeting images of nostalgia and memory. Assmann moved to Los Angeles in 2003 and began using her growing collection of vintage found photographs from the vast flea markets of Los Angeles as inspiration. Katrin explores the imagery of a bygone California; a world very different from her hometown in Germany.

Katrin grew up in Essen, Germany where she studied Illustration, art and design at the famous Folkwang University. “I feel an optimism and ease of living we didn’t have when I grew up in Germany. I work with layers of diluted oil paint to create a sense of a glorious but lost past just as a photograph that captures a fleeting moment and then fades over time.” – Katrin Assmann

Sandy Rodriguez, “Washington Blvd”, 24 x 36″ 

Sandy Rodriguez’s paintings are quintessentially Californian. Palm tree silhouettes stand amidst the atmospheric fog, fire, sunsets and sunrises of the Los Angeles skyline. Immensely saturated, Rodriguez captures billowing blue clouds set against a violet sky, and the prismatic orbs of refracted light during a midnight drive. Each painting is a vision of Los Angeles, and exudes the essence of moving through the city.

Sandy Rodriguez a third-generation Chicana painter and independent educator who investigates the methods and materials of painting across cultures and histories. I was born in National City, California in 1975 and raised across San Diego, Tijuana, and Los Angeles. I grew up experimenting with the ratios and techniques of oil painting passed down from the three generations of Mexican and Chicana painters in my family.

Edward Walton Wilcox, The Brilliant Dream, Bitumen and tempera on panel

Wilcox represents the continuation, if not evolution of the multi-talented Renaissance man, achieving an absolute mastery of craftsmanship across a vast array of mediums and disciplines. Though his Gothic and Neo-Romantic technique betrays a romantic affinity for the legacy of his craft, Wilcox’s sepia toned, hi-chiaroscuro technique captures idyllic, imaged landscapes that are both captivating and disquieting.

Wilcox’s work has shown in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Seattle, and Berlin, and has appeared in publications such as The LA Times, Juxtapoz, Coagula Art Journal and FLAUNT Magazine. His work can be found in private and public collections across the United States and abroad.

Kristine Shomaker Exploring the Beauty Myth Through Contemporary Art

Brainworks Gallery Presents “Her Intuition”

A Group Show Curated by Erin Adams Featuring Kristine Shomaker
Dates: May 6th –27th, 2017
Brainworks Gallery 
5364 West Pico Boulevard.
Los Angeles, CA 90019
Kristine Shomaker

I am honored to show a new video installation, “Losing Weight” in the group show “Her Intuition.” Curated by Erin Adams of Brainworks Gallery.

“Her Intuition” is an exhibition opening at Brainworks Gallery on May 6, 2017 from 5-8 pm, curated by Erin Adams featuring works by five local female artists. Edi Dai, Yasmine Diaz, Margaret Nielsen, Andrea Patrie and Kristine Schomaker will present new works that illustrates the myriad aspects of intuition. Intuition is defined by researchers as the brain’s ability to draw on internal and external cues in making rapid, in-the-moment decisions and the women in this exhibition take that idea—consciously and unconsciously as a point of departure. The works on view range from non-traditional large-scale oil paintings to collage to video installation as each artist’s choice of medium is also dictated by an innate sense of intuition. The exhibition explores intuition as a methodology and as content and celebrates the fact that these artists work from the gut, and do what they do with knowing confidence.

A dedicated conceptualist and surrealist autobiographer, my current work is part of a new cross-platform project called “An Ode to a Lost Love” whose leitmotif addresses the de(con)struction of self in relation to society’s perception/projection/reflection of beauty. This work focuses on the complexities of gender identity, body image, and the societal privileging of women’s physical beauty over character and intellect. The series already includes painting on canvas and mannequins, sculptural installation, digital animation made in Second Life, and narrative photography and video.

From video skins to tangible objects, in Second Life and In Real Life, I focus my attention on a cheeky exploration of the commonplace trappings of childhood, and the role of gender-branded toys in instilling skewed societal values from an early age. Vanities, kitchenettes, toy cars, beauty products, pink shag carpet — all of these and more seemingly innocuous set pieces of our romper room days reinforce the toxic messaging about women’s work and self-worth as a function of body image. Messaging that follows adult women into the boardroom and the bedroom.

My visual style is one of density and delicacy, control and chaos, intuition and deliberation. My marriage of concept and technique emphasizes the artifice of the manufactured beauty standards that can obscure our true selves from the world. As the gravitational layers of paint coalesce into “metaphorical skins” and are applied to pared-down emblems of domestic interiors, especially the rich metaphor of the obscured vanity mirror and as I de(con)struct objects, photographs, art that previously held a deeper significance of an ideal image of myself, I illuminate a moment at which we have a chance to truly see ourselves.

UNIX Gallery at Art New York

Presents Justin Bower and KwangHo Shin

At ART NEW YORK | MAY 3 – 7, 2017

VIP Opening: 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
General Admission: 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

UNIX Gallery

Justin Bower  Fidelity  Oil on canvas  84 x 72 in | 213 x 183 cm  2017

UNIX Gallery is pleased to announce our participation in the 2017 edition of Art New York. The fair will be held at Pier 94 from May 3 – 7, with a VIP preview on the afternoon of May 3 from 2 – 5 PM. UNIX Gallery’s booth A202 will feature a two-person show with works by Justin Bower and KwangHo Shin. Justin Bower, known for his anonymous portraits, uses his brushstrokes to give us an understanding of an extensive subconscious reaction to technology. In his paintings, KwangHo Shin attempts to capture the complex relationship between the expression of emotion and the experience of the mind.

Justin Bower paints his subjects as de-stabilized, fractured post-humans in a nexus of interlocking spatial systems. His paintings problematize how we define ourselves in this digital and virtual age while suggesting the impossibility of grasping such a slippery notion. The ongoing decoding of the human body, a formula to each individual’s genome, confronts us with a radical question of “What are we? Am I a code that can be reduced and multiplied infinitely?”  Bower’s paintings begin to open a dialogue to this destabilizing effect/trauma technology has on the individual that has infected the daily lives of contemporary man. His work reflects the increasing “control society” that we find ourselves in. By placing his turbulent subjects in an Op Art context, the familiar repeating patterns that were used to engage the eye in the 60’s, are now being deployed to act as a type of “code” permeating and invading the body/subject.

KwangHo Shin  Untitled [16NY48]  Oil on canvas  90 x 72 in | 227 x 182 cm  2016

Korean artist KwangHo Shin deliberately refuses the depiction of precise form and proportion in an effort to transcend conventional representation and in turn confronts a more visceral type of portraiture. Faces are deconstructed but retain the power of expression as the artist reimagines them in a patchwork of carefully yet energetically applied strokes of color. Shin’s paintings convey the inner psychological processes of his subjects but also remind the viewer of the artist’s presence. “The fear of the blank canvas is dissolved as the colors take shape and are formed on the picture plane…. This moment is the process of bringing out something from the Artist’s inner spirit – it is the climax of the creative energy,” states writer Yu MyeongJin.


VIP Opening: 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
General Admission: 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.


General Admission: 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

ArtQuench Introduces Artist Sky Black

ArtQuench is Proud to Present 

Artist Sky Black

We introduce you to an artist whose astounding surrealistic work bring viewers to become submerged in fantasy and wonder. It takes great courage to pursue a path that is unknown.  The daydreams of a young boy would lead to life choices and an outcome that will inspire.

My brother and I back in ‘94. (I’m the younger one)

My first oil painting – 2009

From an early age, I traveled with my Mother and Brother at first living on the Hopi Indian Reservation in Arizona, then to the East Coast where we traveled for her job. Some of my first memories were on the Hopi land and in places like Georgia and New York City. We finally settled down in Michigan where my Mom re-married and continued to raise children. I was one of seven kids and grew up in Michigan with an obsession for sports, playing outside, and following my imagination into the surround forests. As a child I remember being able to fantasize and journey deeply into my own self satisfying daydreams. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday and my first artistic influences might be traced back to the Saturday morning cartoons like Bugs Bunny, Scooby Doo, and the entire Acme team of cartoon characters. Some of my first skecthbooks featured detailed drawings of characters from shows like Dragon Ball Z and recreations of famous album covers.  However, when I was in my late childhood and teenage years, I still wanted to pursue a life in a professional sport (either baseball or basketball at that time).
It wasn’t until I was 16 years old when I was injured from sports and inherited an entire professional oil painting kit after my Great Grandma passed away. She painted until she passed. I was immediately drawn to oil paint and had gathered more influences by this time, especially in music, fictional literature, and film. Both of my parents had always been supportive of any path I chose to pursue and it didn’t take long until I realized something that continues to drive me today. As an artist and painter, I realized that I had a seemingly infinite amount of freedom to create, narrate, and visually unpack the many images and stories that had been incubating in my imagination. This inspiration coupled with my desire to learn how to oil paint quickly put the idea of becoming an artist into the spotlight.
By the time I had graduated high school, I had been painting and sketching on every piece of paper I could find and there was no doubt that I was becoming an artist. However, making the decision and commitment was a tough one. I was offered a full ride scholarship for academics to Northern Arizona University but the beginning of the school year was about to be conflicting with a fairly large project I was collaborating with another artist on. The painting we were doing together was for a competition called Art Prize in Grand Rapids MI. It was nearing the deadline and I still hadn’t decided when I came to a key realization that I would make this opportunity to pursue art work through studying under mentors, books, and applying rigorous practice. These three practices laid the foundation for my professional career as an artist and I was able to confidently decide not to attend a University. Since then I have produced over 200 oil paintings and many of which have found nice homes with collectors of all types. I continue to read/listen a tremendous amount of books, pursue new mentors, and paint everyday I can.
