Redux is pleased to present our October/November featured artist Sandy Peraza, aka; CHAPIES! These dark, mystical paintings will bring you into a new dimension with their reverence for surreal, suspended forms elevated in the darkness. Her paintings often incorporate shades of pink an grey which pop in contrast against the blackness all around, metaphorically elevating objects out of their mundane contexts and into one celebrated, central focus. In support of breast cancer awareness and in honor of her favorite painting instructor who is a survivor, she has devoted her color palate accordingly. These beautiful, original works will be adorning the walls of Redux in early October *just* in time for Halloween!
6-9:30PM, FIRST FRIDAY
OCTOBER 2nd, 2015
Sandy Peraza is a self taught Portland based artist. She grew up on a small island off the Eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Southern Mexico before she made the move to the Pacific Northwest, where her adventure into art-making began.
Redux is pleased to announce our newest upcoming First Friday Featured Artist, Jessie Fox-Nystrom! Jessie’s fun and funny illustrations of hybridized animal creatures will be on display April 1st through the end of May. The artist will be in attendance to chat and answer questions during the Eastside First Friday Art Walk. Come help us celebrate her work, drink wine and eat snacks! We’re excited to see you!
6-9:30 pm, April 3rd, 2015
Jessie Fox-Nystrom is a Portland-based illustrator. Born in San Francisco, she moved to Portland in 2005 to study fine art. She gravitates towards subject matter that is witty, provocative, biting, playful, and humorous. Her “Whatif Critters” have been her most popular series of work to date, selling successfully in a handful of loyal Portland retail locations. After a 3 year hiatus from all art endeavors, Jessie began creating while working in a residential treatment facility for drug addicted adolescents. Her caseload was especially fond of ridiculous animal mash-ups. She learned to translate the kids’ imaginings onto paper as means of building rapport, and hasn’t stopped drawing since. Jessie’s full portfolio, bio, and contact info is available online on her website: whatifcreationspdx.com
