March 8 - April 8, 2005
Opening Reception: March 12, 7-11pm
The 6 artists featured in Superstitions and represented by art rep. Jennifer Vaughn are Mr. Glaubitz, Martha Rich, Joshua Gorchov, Chris Buzelli, Joshua Krause, and David Groff.
All have reputations in the worlds of advertising and editorial for being able to dramatize and convey simple or complex themes in a visually arresting and immediate manner.
Besides teaching at the Rhode Island School of Design, Chris Buzelli produces work with a sympathetic gaze of a childhood well-spent.
Living in Tijuana and teaching in San Diego, Mr. Glaubitz creates paintings that show an interest in what he calls "hybridity". "Visual narrative, intuition, honesty, imagination, and observation," he says, "are the secrets for creativity."--and we at Varnish could not agree more.
San Francisco-based Joshua Gorchov has clients including Rolling Stone, Rip Curl surfboards and The New York Times.
David Groff's images combine Midwestern ideals, while Joshua Krause has what some have dubbed a "Caveman Style".
Pasadena-based Martha Rich says, "I obsessively paint undergarments, lobsters and Loretta Lynn."
