Ali Schlicting is a painter from portland oregon. In this series she is making kinda surreal narratives of figures, patterns, and environments.

Emily Bates. My paintings usually come from a place in my imagination that has been buffeted both by reality and by dreams. I feel a need to create images that please myself aesthetically while simultaneously releasing any inner disturbances. This means that my art can sometimes express certain tensions. In my most current work I have been exploring this with the incorporation of geometric shapes and harder lines alongside more traditional portraiture. I am most comfortable when painting in the figurative realm and I have found myself challenged when attempting to incorporate abstract elements.

Jennifer Griffo is a surrealist artist from New York working and living in Portland, OR. She is influenced by many of the surrealist artists of the 20th century. She has had no formal training and is driven by impulse and observation. Jennifer’s work is primarily made up of acrylic paintings. She creates intimate surrealist landscapes and warped snapshots that hold the eye hostage and all seem to form spontaneously from their first mark on the canvas.

Traci Cook was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. She received her BS in Media Arts and Animation in 2007 from the Art Institute of Portland, with a focus on Illustration. Afterwards she became a freelance designer and art director, working on commercials, music videos, video games, and feature films. She is currently based in Portland, Oregon.
