“Emergent” is a tapestry of experience woven by the skilled hands of eight talented artists: Steve Javiel, Daniel Valadez, Malik Girley, Monty Guy, Christopher De Leon, Leon Loucheur, Emily Moore and J. S. Weis. Please mark your calendars for the opening of this not-to-miss exhibition: November 6th, 6:30 – 9:30pm. Meanwhile, enjoy this sneak peek!
“Mental Block” by Emily Moore addresses the issue that artists, writers and creatives alike seem to encounter from time to time, “seemingly emerging from no where”.
In the words of the artist “’5 Owl, Ocean Beach’ is an homage to the all-night, 5 owl bus-line that runs along Golden Gate Park, finally ending at Ocean Beach. I live in the Avenues, about a mile from the ocean. This piece was inspired by my practice of taking midnight walks to the beach to clear my head, stretch my legs, and for a ceremonial sip of salt water in the dark. Then I ride the bus back home.”
Leon Loucheur describes the process of creating as “A journey of exploration. An artist’s thoughts, habits, instincts, and history- these are the pixels that together create the portrait of a creative being. The artists themselves are a facilitating conduit; the elements beneath the conscious surface organize, interlace, and emerge from the cocoon of self. It is the Grand Magic, the emergent properties of style, substance, and self.”

The process of creating is a journey of exploration. An artist’s thoughts, habits, instincts, and history- these are the pixels that together create the portrait of a creative being. The artists themselves are a facilitating conduit; the elements beneath the conscious surface organize, interlace, and emerge from the cocoon of self. It is the Grand Magic, the emergent properties of style, substance, and self. “Emergent”, is the manifestation of this idea. It views art not as a linear thought, but as a tapestry of experience woven by a skilled hand.

Bask’s richly textural work imbue his “anti-iconic,” sometimes satirical worldview with an undercurrent of dark emotion. His canvases are the city’s flotsam and jetsam of industrial and consumer decay. In August he returned to Detroit for “Location, Location, Location” which showcases Bask’s blend of graffiti, punk and DIY styles into his latest exploration of Detroit’s unique textures and vast urban landscape.
Combining traditional and non-traditional techniques, Leon “Tes One” Bedore creates works of art that contrast nature with technology, grime with grace. Tes One’s conceptual paintings are assembled from the foundation up; color and cast blanket organic substrates. Incorporating movement within his work brings his energy and message to the viewer, emotions envelope and hold focus.
