“Prince Lindwormm” by Mackenzie Mullins

ON DISPLAY FROM OCTOBER 11 - NOVEMBER 8

Mackenzie Mullins


Artist Bio/Statement: I am a narrative illustrator graduating from the University of Oklahoma’s School of Visual Arts. My methodology consists of digital painting, comics, and printmaking (for spice). Inspiration-wise, my body of work consists of the idea of the self (be it my own self or that of a character) thrust through a mythological filter. Essentially, I explore relatable, human, inter-personal relationships in fantastically inspired worlds. I tend to draw most of my content from various cultures’ fae folklore and the stories from my own childhood, such as the Norwegian story of Prince Lindworm or the Scottish ballad, Tam Lin. Each piece tends to have its own narrative within- sometimes just a quiet shared glance, or a full-on odyssey.

If just one person can feel seen or understood through my work, I’d be satisfied. I want to create new versions of the stories I’ve grown up loving, and be able to spread those concepts and ideas to someone else who needs to hear them- and hopefully, that someone will see themselves in what I do.

Artist Bio/Statement: My babysitter was the first to notice my interest in art. She'd draw something and I would copy it. Drawing was a way for me to create tiny, childish worlds with princesses and sorceresses. You know, the usual. I was escaping a very traumatic childhood. It led me to start working on my major in college, which was art therapy. I took art classes outside of school here and there, but that dramatically dropped, including classes at school, around the time I was sixteen or seventeen. I worked mainly with watercolors because the paints were easy to move around the page. I continued with this medium for another five or so years, but I wasn't satisfied. Everything to me looked undone or unprofessional. My technique seemed to plateau. I then ventured into jewelry because I had landed a job in a beadary. I’d also started to raise children so my time working on jewelry was a way for me to make time for myself. I was still unable to go to more classes due to poverty, so when Pinterest and YouTube tutorials came into existence, it opened a door into experimenting in different mediums and styles. I bought an embroidery kit from the back of a feminist magazine. I chose the worst fabrics to work with and was still ignorant of so many types of stitches and yet, it was good, really good. I couldn't stop making line after line of thread. Everything I saw, I saw in stitches. My greatest series was of local women activists. All pieces sold within a day. I wanted to progress further by making wearable art. My Western shirts are a great depiction of that. Personally, I love all sorts of art, but I would never have enough room for all the canvases and portraits to hang on my walls. Ultimately I wanted to make an art or craft that could be utilized. I also wanted to be a part of the upcycle movement to cut down on environmental waste and overproduction in clothing. Have a rip or stain on your favorite shirt? Stitch a little happy healing into the piece so it won't be thrown into the dump.

NOT HERE
A Travelogue
By Michael Wilson

I recently returned from a trip to Europe where I visited friends and saw some more of the world. I took only a small bag filled mostly with art supplies and underwear with a plan to paint and see as much art and history as I could. I had the fortune of getting to do a two week artist residency at Salon Squared in Graz, Austria and made many new friends there thanks to friend and fellow artist Udo Wiedner.

This was my first residency and it was a wonderful experience. In addition to my own paintings I worked collaboratively with Udo and with Karen Koschell, the owner of Salon Squared. Having some space and time to experiment in an environment not only free of my usual baggage but also filled with new people and things to explore was amazing. It shifted my brain into an exciting gathering mode that was very empowering. I learned a lot working with Karin and Udo. New environments and new artists to exchange ideas with changes the context of work and forces (or enables) thinking about things in new ways. It is vitally important to be able to test out ideas in different settings, whether it be technical or conceptual. It helps to expand the relevancy of work beyond the inside of my head, beyond my local community, and provides energy and inspiration to bring back to share with my community. 

Here in Norman I have been working on a series of portraits painted from life in oil using only red, white and blue. Included in the show are the last ones before I left on my trip to Europe and the ones I painted since I have been back. I enjoy the challenge of a limited palette, it is fun to play around with and see how many different looks I can get from only three colors. I have been using this color scheme on and off for years. The bicentennial made a big impression on me as a kid and I keep coming back to it as my understanding of what it means to be an American evolves.

July Art Walk Artist: Brooklyn Thorpe

ON DISPLAY FROM July 12 - August 7th

Artist Bio/Statement: “Hello my name is Brooklyn and I am nine years old. I live in Keller, Texas. I’ve been inspired by my teacher Mrs. Westfall she always encourages me with my art skills. It is the best class of the day. I have also taken some after school classes for art.  I’m very very interested in chalk pastels, watercolors, and drawing. Those are my top three medium choices. I look forward to making more art and learning new skills and styles. My mom recently got me a color wheel and I’m really excited to learn how to blend colors and combine colors.  When I get frustrated in life I go to my art corner at home and work and produce new things so that then I’m not so frustrated. Art helps me release my stress and be a better person.”

ON DISPLAY FROM JUNE 14 - JULY 10


Artist Statement and Bio: I consider myself an aspiring creative who loves all things non-linear. I love the juxtaposition of odd pairings in art and music, and aim to incite others to be just as experimental. My favorite mediums are currently thread and cloth. I enjoy the cognitive challenge and rhythm of sewing and the tactile experience of gathering my favorite color of threads. I just cannot get enough of all the fabric and ribbon remnants. My grandmother taught me to sew, and her mother taught her, and I am teaching my own children. I consider my skill to be an ancestral gift and use it to channel ancestors and past experiences. I aim to create things that are as genre-less as my taste in music and hope to communicate stories with my art, incite people to build new neural connections with the observation of odd associations, and to provide a gateway to escape a reality that can be too grim in today’s world in the same way that my favorite authors provide an escape for me. My June 2nd Friday Artwalk exhibit will be my first and I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on. Stay tuned.

May Art Walk Artist: Olivia Harris

“They, Them” by Olivia Harris

“They, Them” by Olivia Harris


ON DISPLAY FROM MAY 10 - JUNE 12


Biography:

Olivia Harris is a student at the University of Oklahoma, majoring in Fine Arts with a minor is Psychology. Born and raised in Princeton, New Jersey, Olivia moved with her family to Oklahoma in 2010. After graduating from Fort Gibson High School in 2015, she moved to Norman to pursue art. At a young age, Olivia aspired to be a chef, a comedian, or a teacher. As she got older, she knew art and psychology were her passions. Her work primarily consists of drawing, printmaking, and ceramics.


Statement:

I love creating funky little characters. Over time, I’ve noticed in my work that all these characters are self-portraits in some way. Even though they don’t always look like me, they reflect my opinions and experiences. Many of the ideas that influence my work can be quite dark or personal, such as alcoholism, mental illness, and my queer experience. However, as much as I care about these issues, I find it difficult to be so serious all the time. One of my favorite things to do is make people laugh, so I try to approach these topics with this attitude in my artistic practice. Using bright colors, strange patterns, and a humorous tone, I hope to make viewers less afraid to talk about difficult experiences.

On Display From April 12 - May 8




Bio and Statement: I have a natural affinity for surrealism, magic realism, and anyone making work that plays with perspective, reality, branching paths, reflections, self deception, the subconscious, and hidden worlds. I’m an artist who thinks of 2-D media, 3-D media, new media, and performance art as mediums that can be blended in complementary ways to serve a narrative. Books and art work that inspire me to create are often works that push the boundary between realities by jumping into different mediums. The leap requires mental and/or physical participation on the audience/reader’s part to enact. I think it would be great to encounter more books that are not all electronic or all paper. If a “novel” has a play-along CD, mp3, video, and/or graphic novel set inside a “traditional” looking novel or Ebook, I appreciate the collage of form. It’s unusual. It’s artistic. It encourages creativity. It’s not a story you’re going to forget very easily because it’s challenged you and shown you another way to “read.”

My work at Bigfoot Creative for the month of April will blend elements of installation, photography, and printmaking.

February Art Walk Artist: Robbi Fox

Helen Grant


On Display February 8, 2019 to March 7, 2019

“I will be exhibiting a ten piece series, Local Legends: Oklahoma. The series celebrates native and adopted Oklahomans who live(d) authentic and meaningful lives. I hope to continue to exhibit similar series at other city art festivals across the country. Each piece is 12 x 16 and priced at $200.”


Bio:

Robbi Fox is a migratory artist who celebrates the human condition through acrylic and mixed media portraiture. She studied Anthropology and Psychology at the University of North Texas. Her work has been exhibited in D.C., Texas, and Oklahoma. She enjoys long walks on the beach and sarcasm. 


Statement:


The potential range for human emotion does not change throughout time nor space. Yet, the cultural conditions we are born into have the power to influence, restrict, and even pathologize this aspect of our experience. In Western culture, public expression of emotions beyond happiness and contentment, or even uncalibrated expressions of happiness, are deemed “inappropriate.” Therapist’s offices have become confessional boxes - the only places where we are permitted to honestly express complex thoughts and feelings which might be perceived as negative, pessimistic, ungrateful, whiny, lazy, selfish ... bad. 
My work explores the full scope of human emotional expression and celebrates individuals who embrace their authentic selves. I hope to draw attention to the fact that cultural conditions contribute to our emotional states and then restrict the expression of them. I believe that this type of examination will help us move towards valuing emotional experiences besides happiness, thereby restoring oneness between our cultural beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and bodies.
