About the artists:
Eric works in the allegorical painting tradition using contemporary and historical narratives as metaphors for his social criticisms.
Jake uses humor and wit to address the issues of race and class in American society.
Rachel’s work merges sculpture, painting and installation to create encompassing atmospheres which discuss humanities duplicitous relationship with nature.
Born in Buenos Aires and living much of her life in Santiago Chile, Carola finds beauty in the seemingly mundane. Her work exorcises a gamut of emotions from people and objects otherwise overlooked.
Christopher works in a heavy and visceral, yet formulaic and methodical visual language. His paintings are indexical gestures of anxiety embodied. The redundancy of form becomes therapy in action. Chris’s subjects oscillate between biological and anatomical abstracts, detailing the gap between the physical and the mental complexities of psychological function.
The Studio@620 is a non profit arts venue located at 620 1st Ave. South, St. Petersburg FL 33701
